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.

Like the distorted organ. I had the same idea (nearly used the same effects) but I think the way it turned out in your song is more powerful. After listening to your track for the third time the drums started to annoy me (track 07). Donīt know what it is.

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'.
