Shadowgate - Entryway (PRC231)

0x25ec - The lead in the first section is a little too dominant, but it is working better in the next part of the song. The section starting at 0:50 is a little too long, it continues the same almost to the end, shortening that section could have been a solution. The ending is good.
Very good to see two newcomers in the competition. I can only vote one first, but I hope to hear more from both of you in the upcoming rounds and next season of PRC.

2nd - 0x25ec has good electroish sounds and fxs, but I think the leadish pluck/fm sound could've been a bit different

There are a few dissonant notes here and there. The sequencing is also quite mechanical.
Sadowugatu: I liked the sound/style, especially the percussion. The length is good and I like how the source was applied into 4/4 electronica.
The piece doesn't flow as good as it could - working a bit on this aspect would have improved it a lot I thought. Changing from part to part seemed quite sudden, and could've used a smoother transition. Some of the synths were constantly playing which made much of the piece feel samey throughout. They could have sometimes taken a break. I thought the intro and outro flowed all right and brought a dose of dynamics to the piece. I also think there was some dissonance in this piece too.
It was fun to hear two such different takes of the source, and pretty good ones too. I picked Gatekeeper Mountain first because of the better structure and flow, but I enjoyed both.
