That's great, I'm also gonna check out your stuff when I finally have more time again


Well, now I am nervous

But seriously, thanks in advance. Advice from capable songwriters and producers is simply priceless! Also, I am gonna make a promise here, once your album is released, if it doesn't get a staff review, I will submit a review of my own, to help draw more attention to your music.

I'm not a producer myself but I know a guy who is able to mix/master with a great sound if you need someone
Wow thanks again but first wait and see if you also like the other tracks, no need to rush haha

I think it's cool to listen what MSers have to offer, and it's pretty nice

Arcanewind has some good ideas, and overall the melodies and songwritting seems to have quite some work behind. Like others said, the biggest problem is the mixing and production. Thin guitars and a few obvious mistakes (like the end of White Frost). But I can't blame you, myself finding the mixing part as really complicated. It's hard to find a good balance if not correctly geared.

Hjel on the other hand seems to have a much better production. Best thing are those vocals. Great voice and very well recorded! Guitars are catchy, despite being so simple. I think the drums could benefit from a bit of variation, even some double strokes or basic fills really helps to make things more interesting. It's neat stuff though.

Thanks for listeing and for your feedback!

Might I inquire as to what mistake you refer to in The White Frost? I mean, it is a pretty messy song overall, but what specifically bothered you?

Well, if you check at 6:40 it looks like a mistake, and on that same keys passage all the sound is thrown to the left channel. Maybe that's just me being a bitch, and you actually intended that
And yeah it kinda sounds messy, as in ideas flying everywhere which gives the impression of not too structured. I don't mind that. It's quite cool and better than sticking to conventional stuff. But yeah, main thing I'd do would be more guitar thickness.

Never feel like a bitch for giving your opinion, dude, at least when it comes to my songs. I value criticism even more than I value praise

Anyway, that whole ending of that song is indeed meant to sound like things are breaking down, it is symobolic of giving up and death. (If you've played The Witcher video game series, which I can't recommend highly enough, then You will understand). The violin is supposed to sound like the record's breaking.

Still, hearing You say it is "quite cool" is a great compliment. It is my personal facvorite of my own tracks and I shall improve it in the future. As I said to Karlabos, EVERYONE, who has commented on my songs and given me advice, shall receive a free signed copy of my album, when I release it .

^ Very interesting guitar tone and reverb usage. (on the Avgud release at least, since it's the only one I checked)
Now I don't have the time but will listen to a whole release when I can.

Just saw it, thanks for your feedback Funny that many people mention the vocals, while I just started doing it some months ago because I actually don't like singing too much, but my will against another guy as singer (had some bad experience last time) was somewhat stronger haha. Btw the vocals were recorded as if they were live, so with a mic in hand, because I couldn't maintain a steady distance and stay still when singing...

Guess I was surprised they sounded so "professional" When first heard I thought about bands like Negator or Der Weg... Like average BM raspy vocals, but well done.

I've seen some kind words (which I greatly appreciate) towards my drone metal project here: https://znmusic.bandcamp.com/releases . Thanks a lot, I'm real proud of it.

That's my only metal project but I've several more in the experimental spectrum.

My main one, Trouble Salad (noise/experimental/ambient/etc, a smorgasbord of things really): https://troublesalad.bandcamp.com/
Indentured Servant (100% harsh noise and power electronics brutality): https://myheavenisincompletewithoutviolence.bandcamp.com/
Math&Science (experimental electronica/IDM/noise/psychedelic/trance/breakcore, I tried to make some vaporwave and it evolved into this): https://mathscience.bandcamp.com/
Peaks of Thok (Drone/dark ambient): https://thepeaksofthok.bandcamp.com/

I may as well join this...
I hope to expand to an actual band someday because I am only so good at trying to do everything, but for now it's just me. Given where I live, that is unlikely to change any time soon. I could ramble, but what's the point of that? Here's my not exactly gothic project, The Evergreen Conspiracy:
