I get it now. It's like the life cycle of Justin Bieber. There's little Justin, all sped up like a hummingbird so old old Bieber can be audible. Then there's auto tuned Justin in his late twenties complaining about his job. Then there's middle aged Justin who just talks about his dreams in cult like support groups and then sits in silence playing his guitar with earplugs on. Old old Bieber just keeps getting excited rattling on about something...maybe his flax cracker recipe or his cool colored poop.

This song is bad, and you should feel bad. Look man, I get it, you're 25, you spent your most impressionable formative years listening to bands that sound a lot like this. You're a talented musician, one of those kids who can pick up an instrument and just learn it inside and out in a freakishly small amount of time compared to the rest of us. On top of that, you went to college to study music, so not only do you really know your #@&%!, and how to arrange and play it, but you know it the right way, the way you're supposed to be doing it, based off of theory technique.

Here's the thing.

The genre in which you most enjoy making music, is a trendy niche. For most people this ship has sailed, and they're not really interested in looking back. To speak even further to this point, even when that WAS popular, it sure as #@&%! wasn't popular here (trust me, i know from first hand experience.) If you were putting this out around the time Underoath came out with "They're only chasing safety," you'd be uber-famous.

My MAJOR PROBLEM with your music, is the fact that you are labeling yourself as "Melodic Hardcore." This is in no way, shape, or form any kind of variation of Hardcore.

You need to go listen to Judge, Good Riddance, or Shai Hulud, Verse, Comeback Kid, maybe even some early Boy Sets Fire.

Genre specification errors aside, while I greatly dislike most of the music you make and post on this site, so far... I would actually be very interested to hear a track of you, just playing a piano and singing. Take out all of those effects, no compression, no antares auto tune, no drum triggers, just a good ol nice songwriting showing. I know you have the talent to do something like that and make it great. If you ask me, all of the bells and whistles you're putting into the production of your music is just weighing you down. You could very well be one of the best songwriters any of us have ever heard, but no one will ever know if you're singing in a dead language, to people who don't have any desire to dig it back up.

It not so much the drum level as it is the mix of the beater and boom on the kick. I would invert their proportion. I'm fine with everything else, except my blanket bitch I have with all most everyone, not just you. Yall make such an effort to write meaningful lyrics, spill your guts out vocally , but then don't make it the focus of the mix. I'm perplexed by it. This'll be a killer track once the technical issues are resolved.

Man...the drums again are killing it. Sucks any subtleties right out...they overpower everything. There are some great musical moments here but the drums just wipe them out. Still not a fan of the vocals....

same as my last review of your music, the growling vocals just never did it for me, if i can't understand what you're saying, in some language, then your music fails. musically it's pretty awesome, though I HATE the bass drum more than the growling vocals.

I can't offer any constructive criticism here. I think the mix is what it should be. It is remarkably clear for all that is going on. The engineering isn't lacking. What I can't understand is, what place your mind would have to be in to find this enjoyable, or even musical? There is some screaming technicality here. I give it that. My question is, why?
