Not sure whats up with the intro and skipping around and whatnot... but there's some cool riffing going on in there. Did the drum track go off time with the rest of it at some point or something?

Sounds like it needs to be tightened down a bit, and then it will be badass. Maybe the mix is just off so much that it throws my attention.. but that beat needs to come up a lot.

What it sounds like to me, is that you have written a lot of great riffs, and tried to put them all together, which doesn't always work. Try to write a few crafty licks just to bind the parts together. Also, put something behind the first intro part, it seems really empty.

Otherwise, thats pretty tight dude, keep it up.
#6
Good ideas in there - i agree with what the others are saying about it needing to be tightened up in places and maybe structured a bit better.

Otherwise it's pretty solid - good work
#7
it seems to be more a collection of riffs than a tune or song. There's some excellent ideas though, just take them and try linking them. And i agree witht eh backing for the opening riff, cause that would sound great
#8
I found it quite hard to follow...I didn't see a set structure, although the riffs were pretty tasty. The drums were really quiet too but I'm assuming you emphasized the guitar on purpose. I'd say it's a good set of riffs you have there but it could do with a bit more direction instead of just smashing them all together.

Thanks for the add on myspace btw.

The intro sounded a little off time at some point. You should indeed work out the cohesiveness. This can become a great song

Wat.

yeah man, i can really hear the Iron Maiden influence in your playing. nice stuff going on in there, the ending was really good. you just need a little more structure.

Main point : its good.
#12
I'd ditch that drum backing if I were you, I think it would sound alot better... Also the intro is strange, IMO you should start the song with the clean part around 00:30. Solo is decent, but i think the rhythm backing gets of at some point. You have some great ideas, just smooth them out and dump that drum track =D

Yeah, I agree with everyone else: sweet guitar, but it sounds like the drums are too quiet and really.. offbeat or something. I don't know.
Sweet song, though.
#14
Definetly some good ideas there. I had a bit of a hard time with the drum part though. I'd have to agree that it may be better without the drum track. Nice job though, great playing.
