Just finished this one up. Its kinda crazy off the wall, but I'm a fan of dissonance and generally ugly chords, but at the same time, I'm very into ambient. I also have been incorporating more synths into my music. Let me know what you think, critique is welcome.

I really like this. The mix has a sort of "wall o sound" thing going on and I think it fits this music perfectly. The kick sound is not my favorite but it certainly works. The little touches like the record player thing at the end are neat.

Sounds fantastic. It might be pumping/distorting a little at times, but it's gernally speaking a very good and clear mix. It has great 'width'.

I imagine the folks over at SS.org would love this.
I cant get anyone over there to give me input :lol:

And thank you. I thought the distortion was a bit over the top, but i was kinda shooting for an ion dissonance/tony danza tap dance type feel, so i just said fuck it :lol:

Have you tracked any bass on this? It seems a touch shrill to me - but I fucking love what you're playing - the music itself kicks ass!

If not, i reckon you need some bass in there to balance out the mix before I could give you any proper critique. If you are then a)sorry :lol: and b)bring it forward/put a touch more on the guitars. It's a bit 'brittle' just now, you know?

But I like it. Keep it up!

Thanks simon!
I totally agree. I didnt have an actual bass on hand, i ended up using absynth4 for the bass sound. I'm not as happy with the bass section as i'd like, but one of my next buys is going to be a bass for recording with. But thanks for listening:)

Sounds awesome, Chris. I love discordance and use it a lot in my music as well. This stuff is right up my alley. :yesway:

I agree with Stitch, but it's pretty obvious that it would sound better with a real bass.

Nice stuff. Keep it up.

Fuck input or criticism. I bet you didn't post it for that horseshit, but just to share. Everybody has a mother fuckin' opinion. Here's mine.

It rocks. It's weird as shit, but brutal, dude. :hbang:

Thanks guys!!

Yea, a little of both :lol: But sometimes i'm so fatigued at listening to the same song for a week that i miss obvious details, so it helps to get fresh ears. And it doesnt hurt to get some kudos here and there:)
