This is a perfect parody of all the horrible auditions mashed together! I would reserve this spot to point out a few technical problems, but I don't think that would be important here, because it was either intentional, or doesn't need to be fixed to sell the scene.
I hope to see some more from you sometime soon you brilliant person you!
yes that was intentional, as people don't know how to stand still. lol.
I enjoyed this quite a bit, but I could hardly hear you! My only suggestion would be to crank up the volume, and layer on some more creepiness! :D
46 to 58 gave me chills. <.<
O.o Sry to creep you out people say i have to perfect voice for demons or other unworldly things lol but i hope one day it snags me something for people to enjoy lol.
A lyrical delicacy!
A poetic blast of godlike lyrics just penetrated my headphones and wormed it's way into my head.
After I recovered from being blasted by the lyrics, I manage to gather myself together again and write this out whilst listening to the song, in a semi-trance.
You truly have talent when it comes to making songs that not only amaze with their smooth, mesmerizing rhymes and somewhat laid back, mellow beats, but pummel the listener into their seat with the fast, well thought out lyrics that draw you into the song and lock you in a trance that lasts until you pull yourself out enough to click the stop button on the song.
I have to say that the Marilyn Manson reference at the end of verse two made me smile, It was a nice little nod to the reverend. I have to say, the sound of the demons' voice sortof contrasted starkly to the smoothness of the rest of the song. It's kind of like a knot in the grain of wood if you want to make a visual analog, it stops the quick fire pummeling of the lyrics and breaks you out of the mesmerizing beat, but because of that it makes you need to hear the song again to regain the lost nirvana.
On another note, I respect you for your ability to do your songs with little profanity, it gives it a more professional feel to it, and adds to the smoothness of the song.
Keep up the good work and blow us away with more stuff like this!
White boy out.
wow dude, this is the best review i've ever had, it had me standin up yellin and accidently pourin beer on my roomie. Thanx alot for the props, The demon voice is supposed to sound like the dude from power rengers that is just a beam of light, I forget his fucking name lol but yeah, that represents the demons that I battle everyday trying to create sumthing clever yet acceptable. I'm glad you enjoy this clever transition from the norm and thanx for the review.
Well LyRikLyNkLyNd, This is a great piece of work you did here! The song itself is pretty deep, and the lyrics pull you into the song. However, the song has a few petty flaws that can easily be ironed out.
You picked a good subject to make the song about, but at a few points in the song I can barely hear your voice above the music. This means I have to rewind the song in order to make out what it was you said, and that takes away from the overall effect the songs leaves on me. I'd recommend that you crank up the volume on your voice, so that we can all hear you a little easier!
Like Lidlurch said, the second half is a little off, but it isn't too terribly bad. This just means you'll have to do a little ironing on the song...
Other than those few flaws, the song is great and is pretty deep. The beat is solid and not repetitive to the point of annoyance, and augments the lyrics pretty well. I also like the fact that you didn't synthesize your voice or change it in any way I can tell from listening to it casually.
I'd love to hear more of this type of stuff from you, I'll be sure to listen to the rest of your stuff and look forward to the new songs you put out!
You're really talented, so keep up the great work!
White boy out.
Thanx dude, yea i'ma prolly work on this a bit more before i leave for x-mas.
This is good work Tomamoto, and now I have this fancy, wanting to hear you read aloud Green Eggs and Ham.
Dude! If it's possible, I think you just outdid yourself!
The song is great! And there was nothing I could nitpick at once I read your review responses.
So, high five and I hope you bring more like-minded songs and artists to Newgrounds.
P.S. Who was it that encouraged you to release this awesome full version?
P.S.S. Moar songs pwease?
Well, some of my respected reviewers encouraged me. I'm glad you liked it so much. Composing is all the more fun when you get feedback like this, so more is to be expected. Thank you !
You were right when you said it was long!
Well, I listened to your song, among others.. and this song instantly makes me think of a city getting bombed in a movie, whether it's a nuclear bomb falling down on the city, everything is wiped out, people are stumbling around in chaos, and then the drum kicks in around 01:00, and you can see the skies clearing away people starting to figure out what's going on.
02:00 People are starting to wander out into the streets carrying belongings and the wounded, the antagonist can see bodies laid out all over the street, crumbled buildings...
03:00 (I think the conversion to the new drum beat was a little shaky...)
03:57 The hero is on a hill and at last sees the whole city, smoke blooming up into the sky, wreckage scattered everywhere, and little bumbling forms wandering aimlessly around the city.
Now, I'll end my little movie analogy now and get on with the review, overall a good song, and you did good with the ending, I think it was the best part of the whole song to me...
So, without pestering further, let me tell you that you've done a good job and I'll be browsing your music for more!

Thank you ! Excellent review. I was actually surprised to find a review for this song, because it's an old one, and it tends to be overlooked.
I give this a ten! Very good work with the chimes and tambourines, added to the song very well.
I wonder what this would sound like with a gong in place of the bass drum?
And something else that I liked was the choir! It returns to your songs! Nothing gives a more dark feel to your songs than those angelic voices mixing in with the dark moody atmosphere of the rest of the song.
Speaking of the dark moody atmosphere, the horns you used in the end of the song could have really enhanced the beginning with a low mournful sounds to go with the violin.
The synths that you used for the start, maybe you could replace them for the trumpet? I think it would make an interesting sound, but then again, you used them to do the hopeful part of the song later on...
But these are your songs Not mine! And mentioning that, what are you using to make these? Could you link me to the site? Because I'm thinking about trying to it just for the hell of it.
-Eastep1, your reviewing pest, person who asks to many questions in one review, and lover of your music
P.S. Let me know if I'm getting annoying with my questions, my curious nature is unleashed in my reviews...
Not at all, your questions are not annoying, and I really like your engaging reviews, they represent the constructive observations any artist needs to improve. You have a point about the trumpet, but unfortunately I don't have trumpet synths that sound really good for a solo. I use FL Studio 5. I think the most recent version is 8, but honestly I never bothered to upgrade because I still haven't figured it all out yet and for my experience level it's just fine (plus I'm pretty nostalgic about this version since my high school beginnings in music). The orchestral instruments are mostly soundfonts which you can google for free downloads. Thank you for listening and reviewing.
First off, AWESOME! This is perfect for Halloween! So, because of the quality of the song, the song itslf, and everything about it, I say it deserves a solid ten. Perhaps take a point off bescuase of the flash it was in... but nonetheless, this song is great, nothing I could critisize besides, MAKE MORE!
As wanted, this made me think of bomber planes flying overhead, although the only thing I could comment on is that there wasn't any area in the song that was different from the others, and it needs to be a tad longer. But still great!
