I recorded this like last week. I got a new computer recently but the soundcard on it is not as good as my old one. The volume on it is way lower, so the drums sound wierd sometimes, I mean you can hear some crackling sometimes. Nothing too much I hope
The intonation on my high e string is a little flat, so there are one or two instances where the higher notes sound a little wierd.

There are three other tracks on there, but I've posted them on here before. If you wanna check those out it's cool too.

Ashen Spire - My personal metal band.

Revolution - The start has a Nile feel to it. Then it's got some kind of riff that feels like you're going to slay some dragon. haha. The instuments are nice. All I can say is skip the vocals. They're pretty bad. When the vocals come in, the instuments are taken down a bit. Awesome solo. 6/10. Nice harmony. If you left it as an instrumental, you'd have a 8 or 9.

Stalked By Shadows - I like the intro harmony. It's got an In Flames feel to it. I'm enjoying the bass behind the clean guitar. Another great solo. The only thing I'd change would be the repetition. But I like songs that change a whole bunch. 8/10

Tranquil Reveries - I like the first harmony. It cuts off a bit early but leaves some weird "ting" sound. It reminds me of Iron Maidens Rainmaker in a way. Cool outro. 7/10

Singularity - The first clean part has an Opeth feel to it. The next riff sounds a little bit messy. Again, nice cleans. The distorted parts are a little too messy. The riffs are really random. 6/10

You have a lot of potential. I'm also 15 and play metal. Check out the Myspace link. Add me if you want.

i liked the opening riff. when the distortion died down and kicked into the clean it got a lil messy and but when it got on the distortion again it picked back up. The solo was pretty good to i really like the riffs in it but u need to rearrange them just a lil better and get it organized. but i liked it. keep it up

singularity.... man your writing has been improving alot since i started lsitening to your stuff over the months... the intro riff absolutely owned haha! the clean bit sounded pretty neat, maybe a clean harmony of some sort could go along with it? just an idea. the rest of the riffage was pretty tight, and i loved that solo!

i also gave tranquil reveries a listen, overall its pretty sweet, but i think that the drum track needs some mixing up a bit to spice the riffage up. another idea would be to make the drums play a double time beat over the riff at about 1:30, thatd really thrash things up a bit again the solo was sweet... loved all the harmonies!

crit both of these if you can be bothered? :P
