This is a song I just made up. Its got an iron maiden type feel to it at some points. The solo isnt exactly how I play it, I mostly improvise but thats a basic structure of what itll sound like. Tell me what you think.

Intro is very attention grabby. I like it. Metallica-esque, in my opinion.
Verse is very good. I like it a lot.
Chorus seemed very bland, guitar wise. Though, it didn't sound bad.
I really like that main theme. It's very catchy. Definately Maiden like.
Solo sounded very good. I actually enjoyed it.

Overall, I love it.
Very, very great.
Big thumbs up.

Mind critting mine?

Another good song.
The main theme was very catchy and reminded me of Iron Maiden right away. The drums also fit so perfect, simple but perfect. Very upbeat, which I like, and also a really nice solo to along with.

Keep it up.


EDIT: I just put up a new song, can you please crit it?

I like it, i felt little power influence there too, the harmony section was similar if not the same as the main riff, maybe change that? The ending dissapointed me a bit too.

Overall very good but some what predictable, I'd download it from limewire :P

Great song. It really flowed well. It reminded me not only of maiden, but in flames too.

Yeh it was good. The solo was good, and the intro I really liked.
The only thing is that it's basically the same chord progression the whole way through, which makes it a bit repetitive. You should mix it up to give it more impact.

well sure without lyrics it sounds repetitive but alot of songs are repetitive if u take out the lyrics.

i liked it a lot... one thing i thought is when the keyboard chimed in during the guitar solo, you could turn down the volume a tad bit because it sounded like the keyboard drowned out the guitar, and i find the guitar far more interesting..but i liked it a lot. it definitely reminded me more of maiden unlike metallica as someone said. crit for crit? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=404106

Yep, that's the only problem I see with this man.

It's pretty kickass. I really don't see any things that stand out making this weak, I thoroughly enjoyed it. \m/

Check out my song, it's also got quite a Maiden vibe to it.

The main riff is very maiden-like as has been mentioned before, i love it! i think it's great when the keyboards come in for that harmony section.

The outro was a bit disappointing after all of that, maybe include a key change?

The verses and choruses were a bit boring but put lyrics over the top with a good vocal melody and this will be great

Check our my song please, i'd appreciate it: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=405526
