I agree, most of my friends said it should be longer. But the theme itself really doesn't have much to work with. I'd add more but thats something I really dont like to do minus writing a solo over some provided rythm, but at that time nothing really came to me. I was also on time constraints to submit it to a little video game album on another website, so I wanted to get it out as quick as possible. The overcompression came from a very quick master where I simply limited the shit out of it and didn't pay a whole lot of attention. I'm pretty sure some was due to Youtube also. I didn't know much about mastering back then and if I could remaster I would, but I only have the final track. The drums are from Superior Drummer: The Metal Foundry, great VST. I programmed the drum track maybe 3 or 4 months before I finaly got around to recording the song in it's entirety, but only had the .wav file of the whole drum track. I figured the sound was pretty good so I just stuck with it. Like I said in the video description though, I may rewrite and rerecord some time in the future if I find a collaborator. I need an ideas man to keep me motivated or else nothing gets done. Thanks for the crit EDIT: I'll also put together a soundcloud profile to host my tracks.
