Amospherium you nailed it. ashka super great vibe, the bassline and swing-style drums are sick. Suzu's song was pretty epic as well. Honorable mention to ethansight

I voted early this week!

Atmospherium: Really good delivery. Voice was excellent. Contrast between the soft and hard sections was interesting and the nonstandard meter is also really interesting.

Suzu: Great guitar sounds here, it sounds really really good. Great rock song!

Dex: Yeah more rock, it's awesome.

good job all! I also really enjoyed listening to

JH Sounds (liked the vocals here)


DrumJ8: counterpoint really interesting here overall!



Koekepan: it was minimal but it was super groovy

Some comments on the early entries that I missed because I entered late:

Lyra_183: slowly leveling up!

DrumJ8: nice string work.

DarkShadow: intense as usual, great beat!

Garian: sounds like a good foundation.

Koekepan: very windy, the ostinato rhythm works well.

cotmm68030: good textures, good piano! I liked the tone of the vocals, that were a bit "pitchy".

ethansight: tight and punchy mix. Nice piano.

thesocialcontract: good upbeat song! I think I would've used a quieter lead, as it's the only bright element and it would stand out in the mix even with a lower volume.

My choices:

Dex: very literal, very awesome!

Suzumebachi: this is illegal. Awesome guitars.

ashka: great flow.

Atmospherium: this is excellent, but it was submitted late.

awesum: ethansight, Dex, Suzumebachi, nukage, ashka, JH Sounds, Atmospherium.
good: Lyra_183, DrumJ8, DarkShadow, Garian, Koekepan, cotmm68030, thesocialcontract, TheVideoGamer, NickC, Arcana, DDRKirby(ISQ), mcmiagblackmanisgod.

I might have rushed this, a little...sorry. Anyways...

@InvisibleObserver - No this is Patrick lol. Yes i am TheVideoGamer, it's just what i use for Discord to distinguish accounts.

@Misael.K - I do them in order, so if it helps, start from the top and work your way down. So in this case, your comment, at this moment, was before compo started. The thing with this is, i don't want to overcrowd this, because i'm already dominating it by comments on each description. Also not every comment is worthy enough to reply to. Sometimes people might just say, "this is nice", and while i appreciate it, i can't reply to it, because there is no point. I mean, i could use numbers or something, but i don't know if it makes any difference. I really would love to join you guys, but at 2-3am i wanna just upload and sleep. I can only say, let's see how it goes....

@NickC - I dunno man, Orchestral pieces are coming up more and more. Dex incorporates a lot of strings/classical elements into his tracks. Souperion and Wassup Thunder, are primarily classical composers, hell even Arcana has made some Orchestral pieces as of lately. Maybe it's a tossup, i can't tell, anomalies can pop up at any time....

@InvisibleObserver - This is gonna be a long one, in regards to the whole mixing thing. So i made a document, which you can find in my discord under the OHC heading....

@Arcana - Well I'll be darned, you should use it more, it sounded amazing....

@Misael.K - I'm guilty too. Sometimes my track is a bit way too loud...

@Ashka - Lol, i'm always the one who keeps babbling on about how good you are...

@InvisibleObserver - No, we both just have overlapping opinions lol.

@Misael.K - I can only do Compo's at the earliest 10-11pm, chat wise. Otherwise i upload and go....Love to have a full session with you guys!

@InvisibleObserver - If you want, we can discuss it further if your confused....

@Misael.K - Correct. My name is what differentiates between discord and the website...

@InvisibleObserver - Lol. I think IO is a good initial actually. Saves me time...

Now on to my entrant specifically....

We start from the first comment, the minute chorus announces it...

@Ashka - It is ten minutes. I felt no inspiration so i had a troll entrant along the way lol.

@Misael.K - Only because i had tempo changes, so i didn't really know what length it was gonna come out as. Happens during tempo changes, since FL's time goes awol....

@Atmospherium - lol

@Misael.K - That is true, you can still submit even though it says it's over...

@Ashka - Not a VG entry without the speedup...

@Misael.K - Am i surprised lol. What do you expect....

@JH Sounds -

@Ashka - Everytime i have no inspiration, we do gabbbbbaaaa...

@Arcana - All the BPM's. So fast the BPM made a BPM.

@Ethansight - Yes, the cymbals make all the difference heh.

@Arcana - Not even the fun part lol.

@MIsael.K - Gotta go medium?

@Atmospherium - It's a rare experience, put it this way lol.

@CotMM - They don't like 200bpm kicks eh?

@Misael.K - Eh?

@Arcana - Fake ending. Gotcha! Haha....

@Ashka - Well why keep going? Everyone needed a rest now didn't they haha...

@Misael.K - It's just an entry lol, a good entry at best.

@Ashka - Of course it's long, it's a trollpost ha....

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!

Now then...

TheVideoGamer - You know what? What's the point, it's just gabber with tempo changes. I really don't think there is anything exciting here to talk about....

ThaTaskmasta - Everyone should know Family Guy by now lol....

Lyra_183 - I think this is a lovely start, minus of course the random silence, and the ending lol. Seriously though, i liked this a lot, you are really going places! Good job!

DrumJ8 - I like the strings a lot. Still feel like it's a bit static, but good job!

DarkShadow - I actually think this is one of your better ones. Well done!

Garian - It's a groove, i'll give it that...

Koekepan - Weirdly fitting to the theme. Not sure how i feel about the intense minimalism, but it's fun, i'll give it that. Good job!

cotmm68030 - Your voice is almost non-present, i feel it could work better as a lead instrument. Rest was lovely though, Dark Ambient is your strong suit. Good job!

ethansight - Piano was overbearing for me, sorry. Tone down the reverb a bit, and maybe volume to make this sound awesome. Just polish, is all it needs. Rest is really nice. Good job though!

thesocialcontract - I dig the retro 80's approach, this is lovely. Think you left a long tail there haha. I really enjoyed the soft warm feel, well done!

Dex - This sounds like early 90's club music translated to rock. I mean, a lot of rock tracks use this pattern, but somehow i think of 90's rave music. One of your finest for me, i love the grooves on here man! Amazing work!

Suzumebachi - I have mixed feelings about the vocals. I've made a few comments here, about my opinions on vocaloid and the like. Yeah, i'm just not a fan of that kind of vocals. Feels really artificial and grainy. However points are awarded for the amazing backing track. Rock vibes on point! Well Done!

Nukage - Can't go wrong with an awesome Nukage production, am i right?

NickC - Not sure about this, everything feels like it's competing against each other, even if the mix is nicely balanced. The acid bass though is a killer. Good job!

Arcana - I really don't know whether the chords are amazing or weird. I don't know what the harmony is telling me. Also the piano is a little on the loud side. Good job though!

DDRKirby(ISQ) - This was more humorous than expected. Didn't take away the music experience, but did make it less serious than it should be. Well done anyways!

Ashka - Ok that's it, i can't compete with you. WHY ARE YOU A GOD AT MUSIC MAKING..........

JH Sounds - Nice backing track in this one. Well done!

Misael.K - Don't know why this is a bonus, sounds lovely in it's own right to be an entry. Maybe the guitar like sounds are a little...too distorted, makes it sound a bit muddy, but other than that, nice work. Good job!

mcmiagblackmanisgod - I don't know what the hell this is lol. Butcher a horse...i can't...this is a weird lol. Good job!

Atmospherium - Why are you so good at metal? Like seriously you make for a great metal band. Listening back, i think the voice could be louder in the verses, but this one is small. Well done!

Top 3 - Ashka, Nukage, Dex

Awesome - DarkShadow, thesocialcontract, Dex, Suzumebachi, Nukage, DDRKirby(ISQ), ashka, JH Sounds, Atmospherium

Needs Work - Lyra_183, DrumJ8, Garian, Koekepan, cotmm68030, ethansight, NickC, Arcana, Misael.K, mcmiagblackmanisgod.
