    I know I'll get a LOT of hate for this, but I make original metal-dubstep music. It's for fans of both Opeth and Skrillex(do these people exist aside from myself and my circle of rl friends?). Give it a shot. You'll all probably fucking hate it.

    Sorry but all I hear is dubstep. Yeah, over 90% of people here will probably hate it, but that doesn't mean it's bad. It's just in the opposite side of the spectrum where metal is. It's like convincing people who only love Coke that Pepsi is better, and the opposite. I say, kudos to you for having the balls to try to unite them, and you obviously have talent, but I feel that even if it can be done which I doubt, one party will always hear the one side that annoys them the most.

    Man that sounded way too negative. What I actually meant to say is, obviously it's good, but metalheads at least probably won't like it (at least the purists). Don't worry about them too much though, there are probably many people who will love it.

    Thanks, man. I agree completely; I feel like metalheads like what they like already and would be hard-pressed to like something new. I grew up as a metalhead, so I feel like I'm "allowed" to say that.

    However, I disagree about dubstep being on the opposite end of the spectrum as metal. If you listen to any dubstep song closely enough, it's just metal music played on electronic instruments rather than guitars. Seriously! I think it's a shame that a lot of metal fans don't realize that, but that's the ENTIRE reason I fell in love with dubstep. It's death metal that you can dance to.

    Huh, that was actually pretty good considering what I usually hear from amateur producers. I get the feel that isn't your first track, right?
    I'm not really a fan of the music, but the production techniques are pretty good.
    Personally:
    I would add more to the intro(some short sounds to make it more interesting) but it's short so I guess it doesn't matter. Would also fix the stereo image, as in put the bass mono because like this it sounds like it's all over the place.
    The mix sounds kind of messy during the guitar solo part with the snare and stuff.
    I would also tone down some high frequencies, I guess you used some kind of exciter/tape saturation? Or maybe it's from the song you sampled from, can't say I know which metal song it is.
    Generally, I prefer a cleaner mix, but obviously it's hard to get one if you put a metal song in it since all of the not super high production quality metal songs are messy as hell.

    I like your taste. I haven't been listening to much Demetori recently, but I still love them.



    I don't like most "metal-ish" vocals, but I'm fine with stuff like this.

    I actually didn't put any metal song in I play all the guitar and wrote everything. That is NOT a remix. It's an original song I wrote specifically for the genre. Thank you for the feedback, however. I'm always looking to improve my production technique.

    Well, that's really neat, then.

    I don't really hear what makes this a metal/dubstep mashup. Is it the guitar melody that is supposed to adds the "metal" touch? I don't get it. I honestly hear more metal in the song below than in this fusion.



    Btw, I'm in noway saying that the song is bad, it's actually pretty good.

    Yeah but when the previews came everyone was going apeshit about how they dropped the abrasive/crushing stuff for a more atmospheric, post-metalish approach. Personally, bar a few exceptions, I don1t like funeral doom but I am huge on post-metal so if that is the case I'm definitely gonna give it a go.

    After listening to a couple tracks, it's definitely different than their past two releases. It's most definitely most atmospheric with a less depressive feel to it, it does seem like they're kind of moving towards post-metal. Also a much greater use of clean vocals it seems, so that also gives it that feel.

    But listen to it for yourself if you haven't
