This is great stuff. 5 points from germany. Quarante points omelette du fromage dans l'allemagne. On the other hand...this is not how any of this works. You don't have any insight into how the internet works!!!11one
Sorry for the worthless try to be funny.
What's the name of the song, please? :D
Song is "The Gonk" by Herbert Chappell.
What the hell did i just watch? I am really not sure. I like it, though :)
Bit on the easy side but it made for a very nice play. Thank you! :)
You made me laugh my ass off. A hero is you! Also: Please collect 10 MelkorMorgoth asses for me, would you kindly?
It's not really bad, but i cannot describe it. But the Shoot Function doesn't seem to work. I give you 3, just because i think it would be a playable and, for a short time, enjoyable game if shoot worked or if you jumped long enough (plus having control over the jump by how long you press the jump key) to cross the enemy heads safely.
the bug is fixed :)
Alright. First of all i like the overall dark and agressive athmosphere this creates. I can vividly imagine goths in realy high plateau boots dancing their lovably weird walk-dance to this song. On a second thought, this kind of dance might have its root in courtly dances of the baroque period. The shoeware was equally limiting to movement. But i digress, sorry.
What i dislike is the over-use of arpeggiators which i consider lack of music theory knowlede or just plain lazyness. Also the arpeggiated synth is too bleepy (no better word to describe it right now) and detuned so it began to grate on my nerves towards the end. On the other hand, that might just be the effect you were aiming for, seeing that this is about zombie apocalyptic stuff! It also wakes associations to sackpipes and generally medieval music through the detuning, although i'm quite sure, that was NOT the effect you were aiming for :D
Now, on to the vocals and lyrics. I loved the way the vocals are processed. Unfortunately i don't have any experience in vocal producing as i keep my tunes mostly instrumental. What i can say though is that the distortion and delivery fit the topic of zombies really well. The lyrics complete the work of art and kinda reminded me of cannibal corpes minus some of the brutality.
Kudos (i know, no one says kudos anymore but whatever) for the distorted bass because i think it's not easy to musically use a bassdrum this heavily distorted but you pulled it off just well.
Good! 4 points :)
Yooooooooooo, thank you for the review!
I must admit I did go a little bit over-the-top with the Arpeggiated patches compared to alot of my other tracks which are predominantly lead-based in Nature but it's more to an addiction to actually designing the detuned bleepy-bloop sounds (I love them!) and manually designing the Arp sequencing step-by-step in Omnisphere but I must admit that once you mentioned about the sackpipes I have the thought stuck in my head about them haha.
Sadly I do partially disagree with your stance on Arp's being either lazy or theory-lacking in Nature, I think it's more situational to the needs of the user and just as theory-critical when designed from scratch and sequenced in manually (as opposed to the folks who load a factory preset arp and slap it in without a second thought haha).
I'm glad you like the vocal-work, there are quite a number of listeners who do like them and a fair amount which dislike it and usually ask me to tone them down so it gets pretty confusing as to what I end up doing with the processing in future projects D: - I just end up playing it safe though and carry on with how I feel they should sound for the track. Glad that you also like the atmosphere of the track and to be honest I secretly dance to these kind of tracks when no one's looking so I can see some remote connection to baroque dances within it (albeit more slowly haha) :)
Great song! I like your overall usage of timbre and bass. The voices mix quite nicely. Found the melody a little jumpy and there seems even to be a mistake in the lead strings but i couldn't be bothered to search out the exact measure. You can hear it quite well in the intro and ending, when the string melody plays with less accompaniment.
Nonetheless, it's a great tune! Keep it up :)
thnx for pointig that out, its my first try doing trap music so its filled with mistakes and what not, thank you for your review.
What i liked: the drum programming, the 808ish cowbell especiall (you seemed to have countered it with another cowbell in the intro), soulful but kinda hesitant melodie in the "improvisy" part, i call it. I hope you know which one i mean, because i am not going to list every minute and second a thing i noticed occured :) Also i liked the slight latin tinge that comes up through bassdrum syncopation.
What i did not like: Percussion is a little too busy in the first few seconds. The drum programming and especially the tom is very pop like. Too much for my taste and also it reminds me an awful lot of "The Bongo Song" (Played-A-Live) by safri duo, which is really old news. That song is still a kickass song though, admittedly and i would like to believe, you consciously gave tribute to it. What i also disliked is that all the sounds sound really unchanged and stock and i like to hear strange and seldomly/never before heard sounds.
I hope my sometimes garbled english was clear enough to you as i'm not a native speaker and would like to thank you for providing this piece of music for me to review.
thanks for the review! you've highlighted strengths and weaknesses of my song, which i really need to hear. thanks so much and wish you all the best! <3
Very nice! Knowing Poison's secret makes it all the more enjoyable :D
Blood oxidizes and changes colour. Think about that.
