Re: this is my first producer credit.
Maybe its because im not a big fan of this kind of metal,or the vocals to be honest.
I didn't mind the opening credits track,that done it for me.After that i lost interest very quickly,especially when i heard female vocals and the other vocals,i couldn't understand a word he was saying either.Other than that,after 1:30 on the second track i thought sounded pretty cool(like the credits track),i liked that.The guitar work during that section i mentioned is the kind of stuff i dig personally.
It all sounds fairly professional.Better than anything i can do,it just wouldn't be on any of my playlists.
Maybe this kind of metal is more directed at women? like Nightwish and all them kind of bands.Hence having female vocals would attract certain listeners.
That might be the reason why i don't and cant get into it.I do listen to alot of heavy music and have listened to this type of music before too.
Hopefully someone that gets into this type of music will chime in and give you a reply.
You can only learn music,by listening to music.Let the frequencies flow.
