I think you'd better hope that Mel Gibson's attorney doesn't call you.

Nice one man. Not really my type of thing. Still nice work.
I guess I would call it progressive.

i feel safe saying though, it definitely doesn't suck

Cool, good work thumbsup. The heavy use of arpeggio and beat give it a 80's feel. You've matched it to an action scene movie, and I think it's appropriate - I don't know if 'soundtrack' is a genre, but thats where it fits to me.I could stand for a bit more restraint on the arpeggio, and maybe the introduction of some other elements in its place, make things more dynamic and less patterned, but thats me.

I like this song. Melodically it is very kewl. While I am sure it is put together in a certain logical order, listening to it all the way through I didn't get a sense of structure of the song, it's just kind of doing it's own thing. I like for songs to build up, have a chorus, do a hard climax, get my money's worth if you know what I mean. I like the middle of the song, got some cool bass break-down stuff going. Sounds like there is some side-chain compression going on in the bass/kick area, nice groove going there. I like the bass sound and sequence, very nice indeed. The lead melody line sounds like a hard FM type sound coming from a DX-7 or old Yamaha home kbd, part of the unique sound of this song that I am enjoying. I am guessing the bad sound quality is coming from the crappy encoding on utube.

thanks guys!

I really love feedback with foundation! Yes I used ableton combined with some selfmade/changed Reason 4 synths :D...made some sidechaining here and there...

I made a master of the song but i'm still not quite happy with the final version.... if someone off you would like to help me out with mixing and mastering...I'm really noobish with this
