I really like the intro! You have some great stereo image going on here during the exposition of the song. The vibe is really immersive. I really enjoy the rhythmic and melodic motifs you chose. There is an excellent hyper-stereo transition effect as the sections change. Right when I wanted a breakdown, there is just more of the same. Then, the breakdown comes in! Maybe consider moving it forward in time a bit? I like the sound design and chords in the breakdown a lot. The kick coming back in sounds really great, punchy but warm. That’s a really nice white noise swell. This is the kind of track that makes you fall in love with it by the end. You included some nice vocal samples, not overdone. I really like this track and don’t have much to offer in terms of advice. Great work my friend!

This has a great vibe…It reminds me of Avenged Sevenfold I think. It sounds powerful! I think it needs proper mixing and mastering to sound it’s best though. For instance, the vocals could be more intelligible. The bass tone is interesting and reminds me of the late nineties which is super nostalgic…The bass has a very cool grindy sound to it. I enjoy the variation between sections, but the arrangement could use work. I am loving that bass! I would pick the energy back up at the end instead of ending so soon on a low impact part. I suggest ending like you started for maximum effect.

I highly recommend breaking this album up into multiple videos, I still don’t know what the name of the song is.

I also suggest changing the band’s name to something more unique, I couldn’t find you guys after a Google search, but I found three other bands named the same thing. I think it’s worth it to consider changing the name because you guys sound good!

Note: Song starts at 0:00 and ends at 1:53.
