Hi everyone.

I just finalized this song titled Gates of Elysium. I really like it, and I hope you do too. Crit for crit, as regular. All comments and criticisms are welcome. If any serious issues are pointed out, I will correct them and update the file later in the thread.

Thank you.

Also, bass will be added later.

The intro riff sounds odd with those time signature changes....
The harmonizing was good.
I liked the riff at bar 23 very much, and the one at 35 too.
I liked how you used the drums.
The solo was well done, congrats ....
I liked the outro, sounds like middle eastern or indian or something, maybe phrygian?
It was good, but sounded repetitive, adding the bass would improve it a lot...


Crit Mine (in sig)?
If you can, I would like you to crit my untitled

Thanks for the crit on mine man

I liked the intro, but it sounded a little too long even after the drums came in. So you might want to shorten it. The riffs themselves sound good, but just drag on a little too long in my opinion. The riff at bar 35 was nice, it had a dark death metal vibe to it. The solo was good, it fit the mood of the song with the diminished arpeggios. the only thing I would say to change is the end of the solo. You should end w/ a high bent note. Bars 39-46 sounded a little too boring to me. You should do something different instead of power chords, or maybe use those bars for some drum fills. The outro was good, I liked it man. Overall it's got potential, but just needs more work. 7/10
