I just recorded my first demo for my extreme metal project, Subdura.
It wasn't recorded with the best quality equipment, and I'm not much of a producer.
Give it a listen, and let me know what you think!

Cheers!

EDIT: The song as been removed due to a decision to make a change in musical style. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm just going to judge on playing and songwriting.

Sounds like you are tight with yourself only a few mishaps and to what you are playing so that's good. your programming of drums sound good. so that's all fine enough.

When I heard this I figured it was going to be extreme not melodic death metal that almost goes into metalcore around that min mark cause that's a break down before your disconnected doom piece

that clean that goes into heavier... that's straight up something that some metalcore band from 2003-5 would end their set in trying to sound epic.

Honestly for your first song or demo or whatever it's not bad. but the only part I liked was 1:00-2:30 that dissonant doom section that honestly sounds way out of place. that's the only thing I would want to hear expanded and worked on. the rest is just more melodic death metal that's been covered and road worn. with those riffs and style I can't say you are beating a dead horse cause that horse turned to dust long ago and blew away. You are smashing dirt with more dirt.

Thanks for taking time to listen, and for your honesty. I wasn't really aiming for any particular genre when I wrote this song, I just kept what sounded good. But yeah, it's definitely quite melodic. I don't see that as a bad thing though. I'm sort of going with genre blending for this project. But I'm grateful to have your opinion, thanks again.

I feel like the slower chugging parts could've benefited from a heavier guitar tone, but overall, I liked it. The faster melodic parts and the outro were pretty enjoyable.

Yea I don't mind genre blending, it just needs to be better intergrated that a cut and paste but that'll come in time with writing and working your craft. You are welcome.
