Dear SWC participants,
While I like the idea of an "Action Theme", this definitely feels more like a soundtrack than anything. Sadly not close to metal at all. The guitars are too tame (as in: the chord guitars could have been pushed with heavier distorted amps sims), the drums are too loud for this particular production (on headphones, the super bright drum kit even sounds like a sharp knives), the synth towards the end is also way too loud. Repetition is a topic as well.
Nice attempt with going more towards the more heavier side of "Rock Music", and you did create something in the first place. So kudos to that -- you can be (and should be!) really proud of yourself. This is what the Songwriting Competition is about.
However, you sadly didn't stick to the given task this month. I'm sorry.
Thanks for everyone's comments!!
They are what bring the most value to this contest.
You're right that my theme wasn't metal, but I liked the idea of making a soundtrack with guitars. I actually have a cool action theme left!! (I've always liked action movie soundtracks)
Dear David John
