    @Michael Stambaugh: Thanks a lot, man. I appreciate it. Warm and nostalgic was what I was going for. I've been going througha lot of personal shit lately so it's nice to make/listen to something comfortable and safe. Eases the ol' anxiety something fierce. If you like this track, keep an eye out for the EP that this is gonna be featured on, should be out soon.

    You should really shorten this intro bit a smidge. The better part of a minute with only a slightly audible fade-in tone isn't really ear-catching.

    The poor production value really adds something to the surf rock sound. Feels very vintage like something you'd find as the soundtrack to a driving scene in a spy film from the '50s. Love it.

    I love the lo-fi effect you have on the vocals here, really adds to the atmosphere. This track feels so spacious and it progresses throughout the song which is great, especially for black metal.

    Not a big fan of the percussion, specifically the "knock" you used. The kick drum could work with a different tone but, I feel, the song would be better off without it. There's enough going on with the guitar that you don't need the percussion.

    Your mixing could definitely use some work. None of the instruments really blend together that well. The mix almost feels empty, maybe a bit more low end on your kick pedals, I don't know. Besides the mixing, I really liked the song. It adds a nice little flair to djent which, in my opinion, is the most generic sounding genre out today. Definitely gving you a follow, I want to see how this EP pans out. Also, would there be any way you could upload the lyrics for this track? I assume, since this is a concept album, that you've put some work into the lyrics. I wouldn't mind reading the story behind "The Consciousness EP".

    I was really expecting this song to stay instrumental. I'm not opposed to your vocals, they're very fitting (and quite pretty, if I do say so). Although, as I was typing this and listening to more of the song, this is the only part with vocals. I dig that idea. Enough words to get your idea across and then flourish the feeling with the melodies. Very nice.

    Dude, you should really invest in an, at least, halfway decent microphone. You got some great songs here but everything (especially the vocals) sounds so muffled.

    This is good, I like this. You music is a strange mixture of Flaming Lips mixed with a bit of modern Sufjan Stevens. I really like it. The panning effects on the vocals are top notch.

    I had my doubts in the beginning but those were all sorted out fairly quickly. Very interesting track. I thought the panned percussion was gonna get old when I first heard it but it actually improved greatly with the track. All in all, great song.
