@ailee Awesome! Can’t wait to hear it!
@richard The intro reminded me of Korn! I was waiting for Jonathan Davis to scream” ARE YOU READYYY! 😀 but the second part of the riff (tanana na na) kinda takes the song in the other direction but it’s still good. Maybe you can add a few snare hits right before the drums start so that the song explodes
@Ids I agree with Richard, the intro needs some solos. The second part where you start strumming sounds really good, it would work really well with some vocals. The part where you start speeding up and where you play the solo are my favourite, it really does sound exotic :D. And the end it also very cool.

This is a nice thread @richard.
@filip, Pathline is nice man. I liked it a lot.
@ed, liked Twisted History. Any story behind a name like this?
This is the only song I made. I have posted this wayback sometime in this forum. But this thread is perfect, so sharing this again.

@filip great work again. Im not really familiar with this type of music so its really interesting to hear your ideas, keep up the good work!
@sayonil thanks, I thought it would be nice for people to show off there only music, and hey if ever syn or PG happen to listen, what better advice to receive? Great song by the way, some real nice guitar work in there.

@richard Thanks! Yours is great also, first 2 seconds of the riff remind me of Bleed by Meshuggah. Where you could go next with your song is either changing it completely like playing something different and maybe faster or you could switch to a clean guitar and play something slower. That’s all I could think of.

Thanks Richard and Filip.
Richard, I liked your demo. Especially how you matched your chords with the drum beats.

@richard That was sick! Sounds a lot like modern Slash. I would let those guitars ring out and then bring in clean guitars playing arpeggiated chords. A simple solo on top of that and let the song fade out slowly. Just what I heard in my head.

This is a recording of a song I wrote a couple years back. The recording is from a year ago. It may be a bit repetitive and the bridge is kind of a nod to The Wicked End

Here’s something different from me… I’ve been playing this game called “the talos principle” and I really ended up liking it, anyway the game has really ambient music and one day i was playing
on my midi keyboard and I came up with this melody and it really reminded me of this game so I decided to make a full track out of it. This is the first time I made an ambient track and I really like how it turned out.
