Well, I've been gone for awhile. And this is something I've been working on off-and-on for about a week or two. It's a melodic death song in the vein of Children of Bodom with a few other inspirations thrown in the mix.

i quite like the solos...well done..for verse 2 some harmonization would sound really cool.

Yeah. I'm not going to lie, I do have a bit of difficulty pulling some of this off (mainly the first solo), but for the most part I can play it.

I thought it was pretty good... though, I'd have to say that it was extremely boring to me... there are some really good melodies in there, but its just too slow. Also being a huge fan of originality... it's not the most original thing I've ever heard. However... it IS well made, I just think the tempo should be speed up a bit, if you're fine with the unoriginality of it(not meant as an insult).

Overall, 7/10

Eh, if I sped the tempo up I wouldn't be able to play it. I already have difficulties playing some parts as it is. :-\

I really enjoyed that it souded like carcass meets maiden. the leads were really cool and really well done. they flowed reall nice and the solo fit the song perfect

I dont know what you could really improve on Nice Job 10/10

I liked all the melodies, but I thought the rhythm part was a little bland, but that's kind of what melodeath is. The keyboard interludes were a nice touch, but I thought the first one was a little weak compared to the second one. The tempo changes were very smooth and powertab didn't mess it up for me (possibly a fluke?) Overall, very good song, a little more speed would be nice, but I hate it when I write a song on ptab and I can't speed it up. Good job.

Yeah, the rhythms were a little bland, but I wanted my leads and keyboard work to stand out more so I just threw some crappy rhythms behind it.

For the most part, I wasn't fond of the keyboard. Though, that's probably just the MIDI.

Everything else sounded really good.
I really love your lead work. It always impresses me.
Very well written.

First off, thanks for the crit on my piece!

As for yours, I like it and I think it's interesting, but some of it is a little tired, like that interlude riff, which is pretty generic. But on the other hand, I think both of the solos work really nicely, I absolutely love the chorus, and the keyboard harmonizing was cool, so you can have a 9.5/10 sir. Nice work.

perfect, the intro was great and the first solo sounded great, and teh synth was used great, it sounded like something cob would produce for the most part. i'd love to have a go at playing it, as it sound just about my level of playing but i cant be bothered getting powrtab as i already have guitar pro.

Man, that was nice. I'll crit it section by section for you:

Intro - I thought this introduced the song very, very well. I really loved this part
First Solo - You did very well with this I though, even though the triplets may have been over used a little bit
Verse I - You did very well here, this could be my favourite part of the song
Verse II - Not as good as Verse I, but a good finish to it. I think it was nicely done
Keyboard Interlude - Joined onto the verses very, very well and same with the Pre-Chorus
Pre-Chorus - Very well done straight after the keyboard interlude, and leads to the chorus well
Chorus - Not meaning to be harsh or anything, but it made me shift in my seat, I found it really awkward
Interlude - This was done well, was fairly basic but did well
2nd Keyboard Interlude - Good lead up to Second Solo
Second Solo - I didn't like the first note, but apart from that it was very well done
Verse III - I like the way you used the Interlude riff here but make it more interesting
Outro - I think this just topped it off

The chorus is the only part I didn't like, and I think I'm gonna have to give you 8.5/10

Well done

I rather liked that. I thing it sounds more like ur symphony metal piece than melodic death metal. The rhythm was a little bland but u said why, which makes sense. The keyboards were a nice touch of originality.

7/10
