This is the first song I've done on Cubase VST and I basically need some feedback on how it sounds.
I did all the instruments/vocals etc, myself and just need advice as to whether the vocals fit and if the song does anything for anybody,.
It's basically a tune about a guy coming home from the war after losing all his friends.

It still needs some harmonies on the last coupla verses I think.... maybe?????

Well, it's 9.5 megs, so I only downloaded the first 2 minutes of it.

The overall quality and the instrumentation are very good . . . Very professional. You tracked all this in Cubase? Which program did you use for the drums and the synth?

The vocals fit fine with the backing, but it seems like there should be a little more dynamic to them. Maybe you change it up later in the song, but most of what I heard was pretty deep and throaty.

Very good stuff though. It reminds me of one of the late-era hair bands (like Queensryche). Thanks for putting it up.

Awesome song man. The vocals are a little too loud though, they're all you can hear in some parts. Other than that it's great. I'd like to hear some of your other stuff when you get it recorded.
