I haven't done a lengthy metal track in quite some time. I spent about half an hour setting up the instruments, and then 4 hours composing the piece. I did a bit of post-processing, but to be honest I'm not quite sure what I did. I just used a bunch of filters in FL. John, I tried to take your advice and I did some new things with the actual song structure, but not much. I'm still trying to get the hang of all this again.
I think the filters kind of killed it.

Sounds alright, felt like it was a bit lacking in frequency variation though. I'm not a composer by any means, but I listen to a lot of metal.
It was a very flat piece, if you can have more deep drum sounds in there and higher pitch guitar riffs it would do wonders for it.
EDIT: Also, I think putting a double pedal in would be sick if you don't have it in there already. The tempo needs to pick up a bit to bring it to life.
But that's just my take on it. Also, the third link was the best of the three. Hope that helped somewhat.
Thanks, Aeth. That was a test piece, but I'll hold onto what you said for my next metal piece.
Here's something I worked on for about an hour and a half. It's a big work in progress, but I think I've done an okay job with this section. Any ideas?
cool but it sounds like you made it up as you went along
it started out as just trying to record an idea for later use but then i kept adding more to it and it became that, so yeah there wasn't any structure to what i was doing
so it turns out vaporwave music is the easiest thing to make in the world
Hey will you write a theme for dracula. Some gothic soundin stuff.
