View Full Version : Boring or some potential?

This is the new song ive been working on. I cant really decide whether I like it or not. The first riff is pretty hard to play but after that its kinda simple but still fast. I was thinking a double bass machine gun type thing for the 2nd riff(13sec) and then back it down to a basic rock/metal beat for the part where I start the triplets(25sec). The riff after that is what im going to use for the verse(37sec) and the last one (50sec) is the potential chorus.

How many times I play each riff and if I should add any more to it will be dictated by what everything sounds like when I play it with the drummer. So its basically just a little rough draft.

Constructive criticizm is appreciated. Song is called "Fast Metal"....thanks

It's nothing fantastic but it's got a nice feel to it. It made me think somewhat of Slayer, but then again I've hardly really listened to them. I would say pick up the speed even more and see what it sounds like.

reminds me a lot of early metallica. very good. also slayer a bit i suppose. put in a fast solo, and should be a good song.

Some great riffs in there! And they fit very good together. If you're making it a song, then work a bit on the structure though.

With some vocals on it, it'd rock my socks off.

this song has potential, i think the distortion on ur guitar is terable tho.

your tone is yuck, its a little repetetive, but i love it!

with some agressive singing, ide really like it. it also needs a couple of solos.

its felt really 80s, modernize, i want some metalcore riffs, not that easy stuff

you are good at playing fast though... add some shadows fall or as i lay dying style drumming, and id like you

Metalcore is what im trying to stay away from. All the bands these days have the exact same sound. This song was sort of a "go back to its roots" metal song for me. Fast, not too complicated and doesnt sound like everything you hear on the radio today.

Thanks for the all the comments guys. I really want a fast solo too but I cant solo at all right now. Ive been playing for about 4 years and soloing still hasnt worked for me yet :(
