Just finished a new tune. The file is too large to post on the usual Soundclick, so I can't widget it to this site, but if you would, check it out at Censorious . The song is called Vicissitude.

Just don't expect anything, hence the name.

Its not my favorite of your tracks but it was still damn good. The drums sounded great on this one. the only thing that got me was the first 7 minutes seemed a bit repetitive but that could just be me. Im use to opeth type songs of this length so There is a new thing every minute or so lol. It got better toward the end. I really liked that bit after the phone rings. good stuff man, Im looking forward to more.

I posted my thoughts on this already on your FB, but basically I will just say I really enjoyed this tune. I need to try and make a new song. I always get in these weird moods where I listen to only metal and then only jazz and then only indie/folk and then only experimental, and so on. Makes it hard to learn a lot when I am finding my attention drifting so much. It's nice to hear in your tunes the influence of several genres though, it's not just straight metal ever. It's like metal, but with a hint of something else as well, lol.

Dude I like it. I will agree with thatguitarguy about being repetitive but it also depends on the way you look at it. In a song context it gets quite long but in a soundtrack context, movie or gaming, it's great since it builds to create several different emotions from the same piece. I like the mix and as always your use of soundbites.

I like it. I have nothing critical to say. Sometimes a song is better left alone. This is one of them! Who am I kidding? I always have something. Yeah, its long but I like it that way. I was doing something else on my computer while I listening and all of the sudden there were all these changes! I could go on but I won't. Nice job!

I put a lot into making the drums as best I could, so I am glad they turned out alright!

The first seven minutes are a bit repetitive, well not to me, but I can see why you would say that. I tried to break it up with that really heavy cello, guitar harmonies, heavier bass lines and a more aggressive drum attack in the "second half" of the first seven minutes.

I do tend to back load my songs, that is to say, the most interesting stuff happens at the end. No real reason, I just like things to build from small to big.

I think macankanga described my music as visual not too long ago, and, though until then I never though of it that way, I think he is very right. So right that I forced myself to spend some time thinking over what it means to make visual music, or visually adaptive music, and I don't think macandkanga could've been anymore right. That being said, I suppose soundtracks is really what I am after. But perhaps not in the way one might think.

Man, my influences come from every genre, I don't think the music we write has to be genre specific. In fact, if the intention is a certain genre you are already limiting yourself.

Awesome touch! Isn't that a bit Nu sound?

I always wondered if your songs would have badass singer... bout being repetitive thing, not imo, only because structure of the song is good, if it would have vocals, then it not feel repetitive at all. Either way, good job as usual.
