Animation style is unique. I thought it was a pig until it barked. Oh, and amongst the debacle of spew at the end, I appreciated the keys the most. That's what I do to my dogs when they ingest my important items...maybe that's why there's a Polaroid of me at every SPCA in the Tristate area...
Also, a rating of E is appropriate. In these 'troubled' times, we need to teach kids early on that life ain't pretty at all. I think this captures that thought in a very punctual way.
Keep the twisted shit coming.
Its about time!
Mario finally came to his senses and tossed that bitch away. I like how you made Toad into even more of a tool. And do I detect a bit of Popeye referrence?
10/10 man, well done.
XD nice dude, a frame by frame fer Mix A Lot...pretty crude looking, but its better than having something generic. I woulda liked to see more things in there besides the dude only singing, maybe have some background action. And yea, the 2nd guy looked away XD nice way to portray the song. Keep it up dude
This actually costed me
My girlfriend LOVES Nyan-cat, and I made the mistake of letting her play this. I haven't gotten my laptop back until now, its been almost 2 days. Damn you, cuteness
Funny enough - I had the same problem with my girlfriend, only it was all throughout development :P Nyan must have quite the attraction to the fairer sex ^_^'
Left...wrist...cracking from mashing.
Great work tho! I wanna see a sequal to it. More spells, more weapon upgrades (possibly weapon options) more enemies, more bosses, more EVERYTHING!
Oh, and give your daughter a cookie for me. Her voice acting made the game cute and giggle-worthy. =3
The Agonist + Arch Enemy + post-metalcore styling = pretty damn awesome. Good work.
From one metal artist to another, this is my review:
The actual structure of the song is good. I hear plenty of room for badass lyrics and shear power.
However, given all the excellent plugins you are using for the actual metal aspect (SD w/ MF expansion and Amplitube 3), you have some work to do on those sounds.
The kick was all treble, no bass, and had that boxy sound. The snare is alright, but needs more presence and low end. The cymbals are almost spot on, maybe push them back and to the sides some more.
The guitars had a LOT of buzz and had nowhere near enough dimension to them, and it sounds like you have the gain and distortion all the way up on it, which doesn't help. I couldn't really make out separate notes. If I may, I recommend you get Le456 and LeCab (free VSTs, Le465 is an incredible ENGL emulation, LeCab is a cab emulator) and get God's Cab 1.4 (free impulse files for LeCab, has many different mic/cab/placement/distance impulses). Both LePou and God's Cab team did an awesome job and I think you'd get a better sound from those.
The theme is good, but in MDM, the symphonic parts are usually in the background of the song while the actual metal sections are the focus. Expand the dimensions on those to push them to the outside and the rear a bit for more depth.
For a work in progress, it's coming along nicely. Put more work into the actual sound since you have the writing down for the most part (I'm guessing this isn't going to be a 2 minute song en totale). I'm interested to see what the lyrical and vocal theme of this piece ends up being.
If you need some help with SD, I have a few home-made presets you can use/play with. I think they'd give you a good basis for a solid drum sound. If you want them, send me a PM. I'm happy to help.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the lengthy review, much appreciated.
I generally have big mixing issues with the track as a whole and when I remaster the whole thing when it's done I shall take your advice and try my best to make it sound better.
I do have the screamer option on both the Lead and the Rythem in Shreddage, I can turn them off and make the guitars eligible.
thanks for offering me your SD presets. If I have any trouble, I'll know who to PM :)
4.5 stars, broken down:
-Tetris FTW, enjoyed that a bunch.
-Vocal chopping was nice and pieced together very smoothly.
-Bass was good, wobbles were tight and dirty like a hooker new to the biz
-Treble was a bit too piercing, even to my half-deaf ears
-The tempo change was really sudden
Turn the highs down a bit and, before the tempo change, maybe have the only the voice spinning up to the new speed, or whatever your creative mind tells you to try.
Overall, I liked this little sample. Keep the good stuff comin', and hopefully you'll grace us with the complete version (perhaps at a lower bitrate than the paid track?)
