Just sat down for a few hours pondering some riffs... The whole song originated from the chorus riff at about 1:15. My only goal writing songs at the moment is to blow the listener's mind away

New song is "Life's Edge" near the bottom - http://juzcook.dmusic.com/

Crit whatever you can... mix, tone, tightness ... don't worry about drums yet.

Thanks in advance.

If you like this song, check out Extinction too

EDIT: Just for reference, what genre of metal do you think would be classified as?

Hey!
I m listening to your song now, great sound quality
the riffs are really nice
and the solo was awesome
Did you use a program for the drums ?
Which ?

im necrolusts cousin, and we are recording our songs together, and we need to find the best drum program

So far I like it a lot. At first I thought the tone was too mid-less and had too much bass. But it cuts through the mix really well. I would amplify the lead riff in the beginning a little bit more though.

great quality.
the tone is just over-used since its probably coming from your pod

the 1:15 chorus part you're talking about is slightly off time with the drums.
just my 2 cents.

Very cool song man , in the beggining it sounds awesomely heavy , the riffs are very good , very catchy heavy metal , headbanging music , thats what I tried to do as well but i dunno if it worked ..
in 1:10 mark it reminds me the renegade song from hammerfall but overall very good job ! well done !
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

Haha, I wanna revive Australia's metal scene... since Aus is lacking... it's not that there aren't the bands, it's just that they don't get heard, even if they've released 3 albums through a major label

Yep, when I make a new song I usually create my own drum track to what I eha rin my head, after I've recorded all the guitars. I use an apple prorgam called Garageband to do all my recording as well as drum tracks and symphony stuff, since it can make the instruments sound a lot more "real". My drummer will add his own drums later on though

Keep em comin
