^_^ Fellow Loki, xD
This is crazy. Through my years of using thegrimloki as my sign name- this is the first time I've ever come across another loki. I guess we'll just have to do what comes naturally.. Duel to the death?
(For some odd fucking reason people feel like when a song or flash isn't the best in the world that they have to go and act like an asshole instead of giving advice. =_= AssJacks._.)
Here is my honest and hopefully helpful insight.
Eh. I dunno. :/ The lyrics were okay. x___x
Your singing: It was below average. You need to work on pitch and hitting high notes. Your voice does crack in. . . well quite a few areas. But I do my reasearch when I write reviews, I reread your replies to the previous reviews that are shown, I guess I understand you weren't feeling all that great. xD
Guitar: Not a big score on originality, but hey, it was decent. Geezus my skull hurts (not b/c of you, I've bumped my head x____x)The guitar was better than I could do, thats for sure. But if these are still your skills I'd keep practicing. Don't let the Hypocritical moron-bags keep you from trying. ^_^
Keep practicing and submitting, and next time you see some fuckhead flame you pointlessly in a review, hit the lil golden x button in their review and spread word round to people to do that when they see an infamatory review as well. I'm not an admin but I can't stand seeing people being arseholes for no reason.
You have potential, keep practicing. Imma add you to my favs to see if you come up with anything new. ^_^ Cheers,
. . .

Nope sorry, I'm not getting a picture. I'm either blind or windows shit itself again. xD
Anywho, this song be awesomeness. You don't commit massive acts of relentless overkill on the pitch as so many artists I've heard tonight have done (finally a somewhat-relief from headache land. XD) I can't say there is anything wrong with it except the ending solo. o.o
Simpli, Simpleh, Simplah, Simply. . .
Doesn't matter how you put it, this song is simply awesome. :D
For some reason I instantly thought "Mortal Combat" at the beginning. xD
But my problem is it's repetitiveness. Considering the use you mentioned in your author's comments I think it's perfect but if it's intended for games it shouldn't be in grunge. :P It sounfs good though. Keep it up.
I loved the original
This is equally as awesome. I saw the title in the listings and thought to myself "could it be?"
Anyway, great job. I can't really think of any improvement needing areas.
Listen to this song. . . OR DIE
Well it definatly could not use any work. Its great. One of the things I love the most is the rhythm at 00:40 and how you carry that rhythm from the drums over to the piano at 1:06. Nice. Soothing. Artificial instruments. Real instruments. Can you ask for anything else?
Your first reviewer,
Glad you noticed the real instruments in it! :D
SHPEAK AHND SHPELL
Well, the only thing I dislike about it is that you sorta over use the "trouble" clip. I think it'd be much more amazing if you used clips from different things, i.e. a sound clip of a president or movie actor saying "we are in trouble" or something. You could even go as far as to take the words "I", "is", and "trouble" from diferent sources and merge them. Though if you do that wrong it could be overkill. xD
What I loved about it:
Was nice, rhtmytic, catchy, I absolutely love the beginning when speak n spell is reading off the letters, it gives it a good effect. I guess I also like it cause it provides for a sound clip other than the same "trouble" repeated.
Honestly, I'm interested in what this would sound like if you did use various clips. Consider it ,possibly?
Your first reviewer,
Thanks for the review man!
yeah, this was really just a bit of messing around with some samples I had already laying around, so gathering extra samples for it would have taken it to another level...
It's a good an catchy flash, I can't really envision a battle scene until a fourth of the way into the song. To only thing I'm taking a point off for is the abrupt ending. o.o
Your first reviewer,
Hey Jack, yeah the reason its called "Battle Struggle Loop" is because it was meant to be used in a hectic side scroller battle game. Anywho the ending is only so abrupt cuzz it had to be a short loop. But thanks for the review! Makes meh feel good.
Who say's this baby is unfinished? I sure as hell don't. The way it is right now? Perfect. I can't name any flaws. It encompasses the mind with the vision of a battlefield or soldiers marching, casualties perhaps. The way I see it, the fact that you are actually posting it when it is what seems to you "unfinished" means you should be satisfied. ^_^
This is perfect for a trailer to an animation or something. But even WITHOUT a video, or even a title, I can imagine different scenes of a war. To be able to accomplish that is to be as skilled as a professional, methinks.
Your second reviewer,
Thanks for the review! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzyyy
