some scary chops throughout, but vocal variation would have helped this track. given, it sounds like you'd really need to be able to belt it out to fill this song's requirement of "vocal variation". it fails to grab me by the pants because of the lack of any strong focal point. the vocals are loud enough, just not busy enough. harmony, alternate lines, etc. would aid it well.

the guitar solo was done very well, but the lick at 4:00 could have done with some touching up. i can tell that it would be impressive in a different setting, but maybe something like a joe satch-style tap would be more effective for that pedal-feel. does that make sense? i don't know, i hope it does.

i figured you'd want criquite instead of compliments, given that you already konw the song is badass.
