was like a strange cross between demoscene sound and nin...kinda wish it was harder, but still nice. :)

I really like the distorted guitar sound. I would've liked the snare to be a bit more punchy. I agree with the NIN comparison. I do not think it is totally copying their style though. Track could've had more variation. I like the production values.

good blend of styles and carries interest throughout... a little reverby which in turn generates that muddiness.
I liked the mellow parts the most... but the cleaner (not so busy) distorted parts kicked as well...

The beat really reminds good old pretty hate machine (nails now do $[hard nails you!])! I disagree with SeanCandy about the variations, the track lacks some simple beat-tension-builders. Nice song.

Feels a bit messy for me, then again I never really liked nin..
But: at pt 18 it suddenly gets really really beautiful! Great melodies, wonderful flow!
I had a LOT of blah blah blah here, in summation it ended up in this; The guitar needs work for the track to function in my ears. I feel it's treated more like a synth than a 'real' guitar, if you add some notecut points here and there you really liven up the track.
Played a bit with it, and it seems adding a lower note on some of the guitar chords (eg. A-3 on line 17 (cutting it at line 1c), pattern 2) does wonders. :) Dunno, try yourself if you want, just attempting to pinpoint what I find doesn't work.
Also, the crash used in track 07 sounded horrid as it is, I raised the 5000 and 10 000 hz eq a bit, and I liked it lots better!
Anyway, I'm not about to remix it so I'll just leave it at that, hope my comments were of any use. ;)

Like the second part at most. The distortion in track 1 sounds a little too heavy for me.

Whooaa Aged is rocking out on this one. I like the beat! The distortion is heavy but the melodies behind it are very good. Track 9 together with the distorted tracks makes for a very rough dark sound. Overall I like the gritty feel and the melodies are solid through out. I like how you used the nguitar at a lower octave for nice deep sound. Some polish could be added by refining the distortion tracks but an enjoyable and well done track.

nice distorted guitar - but i also loved the sound when you came 'clean'.
