nice playing. i really like the intro. the palm mutes were really tight. i thought the tone for the lead could be fatter. i think for this to qualify as folk metal there should be more clean guitar, but rythmically it made me want to gallop all around the place....yeah.

would you check mine out? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=875561
Too cool for a signature.

Haha. "Just For You" was written on the perspective of Jesus talking to His people. So yeah, that might be where the darkness comes from. I love heavy stuff. You wouldn't be able to tell it from that page, but my heart is in slaying. I like yours a lot. I like the chior effects. You might just want to work on getting a more realistic drum maker. My friend has one that came with LogicPro, and it sounds amazing. Your guitars sound really nice. What are you using? Check out the song on my profile called "Still Lost" to hear the drums that I used.

I'm saving for EZ drummer, so I hope to re-record soon with better drums.

For the guitars I used my ltd m-255 w/ full shred in the bridge, 5150 combo, and a cheap $5 logitech mic into N-track Pro.

This is a great song, sounds like you put a lot of work into it. Right off the bat it reminded me of "transylvania" by iron maiden, a song that was also covered very well by iron maiden.

The break with clean guitar sounds really good and sets the tone for the piece. Really gives it that folk or "irish" feel if you will. You got some great riffs going on here, as an instrumental the pacing is just right.

If you got time please check out one of mine: "to arms v3"

thanks for the crit

great playing

i got into the main riff, the chorussy type part is also well done

the transition to the bridge part was really smooth

folk metal isn't really my thing but i loved that main riff

the production's very nice. I liked the ending-- I'd actually like to hear more strings/synths throughout the piece. Even really subtle ones could add a lot.
I owe a ton of people critiques.

If you're one of them, please PM me.

I have trouble keeping track.

Get some snare on them thar drums!

I know it takes a lot of work to write them in midi, but some creative changes would really be fun.

I would pan/bring up the choir aahs.

Transitions are all good and believable.

Vibrato on that midi instrument during the breakdown sounds pretty good... is that a reed flute?

Yeah that ending is nice, the instruments pass-off to eachother nicely.


Great song man! Fun to listen to.
If I did it, this is how I did it.

Thanks. The instrument on the clean part is actually a violin on the right and a cello on the left. I plan on changing the drums as well, these are only temporary "beat-keepers".

Cool tune. Great transitions, I really liked how smoothly it moved from theme to them. Nice job.

Thanks fir the crit, I really did enjoyed this. It kind of reminded me of iron maiden at the beginning. Loved the slow melodies at 2.02 and when it kicks back in. Overall very good work.
