I'd like to know some of the reactions to the latest two songs that I submitted.

Generally, I needed to get used to the sound.

I didn't like "Reverence" all that much, partly because of repetitism. The synths were quite nice and I liked them, but the general composition sounded too... 'unfinished', sotosay (though who am I to write that, that's what most of my stuff sounds like to me).

"Fallujah" I liked more. Everything fit togther better (the distortion surely helped there). It also didn't sound repetitive most of the time, though from about 1:40-2:00 it was (probably just me who finds that annoying). Also I think the composition sounded more thought through, like I said, it all fit: the snares, the delays, etc were 'well placed'.

Well, at least that's what I think.

Thank you for your response, DMNXS.

In the meantime, however, more than one person has downloaded the songs. Spit it out, come on.

I'll throw my comments into the ring on this one (I only listened to these tracks for the first time today).

Reverence - Overall, a nice example of a techno-industrial crossover track. There's enough variations on a theme to keep it interesting, but it sounded like some instrument lines were more developed than others. The drums are good - at first - but they need more variety to "spice it up" and give it more of a live drummer feel to it. The lead synth has almost too mellow a feel to it. The melody on it is good, but it needs something less electronica/synthy - maybe something more like a staccato distorted guitar sound. Overall, it's a solid effort that I don't see myself throwing away anytime soon.

Fallujah - I really liked the core of this one, but it was too overdriven. A bit more of a shaped distortion at a lower output level -- instead of forced clipping -- would help this track really punch through. I love the mix of random punch-ins of non-instruments, esp. the air raid siren. You keep it restrained enough that it works without becoming annoying.

I really like your style, though if you pull away from the straight fixed dance beat, I think you could really come up with some really solid Industrial tunes (early Ministry/Skinny Puppy/Blue Eyed Christ/anything from the early days of Wax Trax!). Personally, I prefer the more Industrial tracks to straight-ace techno tracks (though I have quite a bit of both genres). Ever tried laying down a vocal track over your tunes? Hard-distorted vocals might give you that extra edge that can set you apart from the pack.
