Love music, video games, and technology. I have done my fair share of podcasts and reviews on the above and wouldn't mind helping out friends by spreading the word.

This is a great piece of art that tells a great story without any words. The music syncs up with the video seamlessly. Soft and somber when our main character is in reflection, and culminates with an intense, full sound during the altercation. I especially loved the bass line. It really keeps the music together and grabs the attention of the listener. Great job!
The visuals fit remarkably well with the music. The stop motion animation brings a real creepy factor into the music video. Also, at about the 1:46 mark, the female "chant" that comes in really brings the whole musical piece together. It gives it a very hypnotic vibe when you hear the faint "chant". The only thing that throws me off, in regards to the story, is why the character is going, "Back to the Dark." Did he lead an evil life? Was there regrets? I see the story unfold and I see the dark creature consume the main character and essentially dies, descending into darkness, but I don't see why it would be referred to back in to the dark. If there was a scene or two showing the character in some shady life dealings, I can see where the title and video would be more fitting. It would give that needed back story of the main character heading back to that dark place. A dark place in life reflected in death.
The single guitar sound throughout the song seems like it has too much gain for a "clean" sound. In my honest opinion, I would either crunch it up or make it completely clean. Being in the middle ground makes it feel like it is out of place. Other than that, this is an excellent song. All the instruments mesh well. The drum accent the beat beautifully and the structure overall is well done. Awesome job, Jamie!
Loving the sound, loving the video, loving the atmosphere! The song definitely fits the video and it's almost like a rock anthem. The clean guitar work early in the track is a nice touch and once everyone plays together, the sound really blends in beautifully. At times, the percussion really overpowers the band, but it's not a negative thing. It feels almost intentional to the point where it gives listeners the rhythm and beat to headbang too! Your sound brings together the old and the new. I would say it's a combination of Pantera and Avenge Sevenfold. Great job, guys! I'll definitely keep an eye out for you!!!
I'm loving the drum track. The double pedal work is exceptional and really stands out in this song. It's fierce and crisp. The guitar, though, is pretty muddy. I can hear that it has some great hands behind the frets but the muddy sound takes away from appreciating the technical work behind it. The vocals bring the song together. They are not overpowering and is on the same level as the rest of the band in terms of overall sound. I like the track and it's only a tweak or two away to make it exceptional. Good luck, friends! Keep up the awesome work!
Love the unique, sound. It reminds me much of NIN during their Downward Spiral days. And on the lyrical level, it goes into a deep, stark place. This particular track feels likes it's more of an inner revolt more than anything else and the music, with it's heavy accents and pounding drums, conveys the inner battle within. Awesome job, guys!
This is a great idea that can really turn into something huge. More and more are creating wonderful products but simply do not have the means to get their products to potential investors and/or buyers. The Plugin event can change all that and offer a means for dreams to become reality. Kudos!
The above video does an excellent job of describing what Fluence is all about and gives a pretty good quick tutorial on how it works. I suggest that a "share" button be made. That way, if someone leaving feedback would like to share, they have the means to easily share via their social media channels. Love the platform, love the layout, and I love the potential. I see Fluence as a gateway to work with aspiring curators as well as those that are already established. I feel lucky to be involved in the beta version and am looking forward to the full launch.
