The only part I can take credit for this is the arrangement as my bassist wrote the riffs and lead bit. It sounds a bit NWOBHM-ish (well, early Maiden at least ). I just want to know UG's whoile opinion on it.

Of course, this is a bit more radio-rock leaning, and the lack of vocals may make it a tad monotonous. I must say I like the intro though.

Enjoy.

GOREDIT: I fixed it up a bit, by extending the solo into full solos. The solos are both improv, so they might not be 100% finished. I might work on this more tomorrow.

hmm, i see what you mean, i can definitey feel the maiden-ness (although i think it might help to make the bass line a bit more Harrisish)

i also think that the rhythm could be doing a bit more than just that one chord under the solo

i thought it was a bit odd where the solo cut off around 1:40, but i did like the solo itself

just a suggestion, but i think a harmony part would sound great with the main riff

not really my style, but all in all i thought it was pretty good

Well, I don't want it to be an exact copy of a Maiden song

But, yeah, I dunno if he's working on it more or anything...I might work on it a bit and see what happens.

Yeah, i see the maiden-ness. not a huge fan of the solos, but the rest of the song meshes well. would sound better with drums too...

Nice work though, keep it up.

I think that without vocals, there's not enough there to stay interested.

I liked it. Intro was cool, solos were nice, and just reminds me of old style maiden. Only problems were lack of drums and vocals, and the verse just seemed "iffy" to me.

So make the very best of it
