 Genre: Industrial

Not sure what category to put this in, but most of my music is industrial so I'll let it live there. :)

Not much to say about this song other than it's the first one I completed in quote awhile. Wasn't interested in applying lyrics or embellishing too much on it... was just spawned from a general sense of mental clarity.

Mental clarity
What a great feeling seeing your name in the music list! Welcome back. Nice full-bodied choice of sounds. I miss you vocals, tho. You have a great voice. Nice to hear a straight ahead homage to mental clarity. Kind of made me think of of a score for something like a James Bond film.

About time!
I love the mix on this.
It has a wonderful dark tone underneath the piano melody that keeps the industrial flavour. Love the choir effects and guitar together.

Damn.. its good to hear your music again.. next time with vocals pleeeeeeeeeeeese :)

Very well done
This is an excellent track. The arrangement and instrumentation is terrific. Great sense of atmosphere and the build up is perfectly done. Very nice sound, too. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

wow. awesome mix of sounds and textures. love the low drone throughout and the slow build. this is full and rich. there is an awesome restraint in the build to an incredible letting go in the climax. thrilling anticipation and then the drop out to the choir voices. just awesome.

Heavy And Dark
There are many things that I like about this song -

For a few seconds that first warbling synth sound starts out like Gary Numan's "Cars". Then the bass comes in and it all changes. Very dramatic. The jangling guitars, the piano, synth sounds, the infrequent drum beats.....

Then it all gets hyper-out-of-hand at 1:55 - I like the staccato guitars/keyboards and the explosive guitars that just bust into the song rather unexpectedly. Big drama. Nice.

The big choral vocals are very impressive and they work well with the entire feel of this composition.

You've inspired me.
