We won't stop until
We convince everybody that you lied
I can promise that we will ruin your life

This really has that "straight out of a film" vibe. The metallic percussion and that descending chord progression really create an air of tension and threat and the vocals are suitably menacing. The abrupt ending really works, too.

short and sharp, when i hear about tose pointlessly fying on a hil, i think oof korea. but i see you an mean it to represent other futilities as well. and there is a way to overpower the powers that send us to meaningless death,

Love the descending sequence. For me, it adds to the sense of energy and race-like anticipation.

Love the riff and the cool vibe of this song. The effects work really. I also really like the concise right lyric and your fantastic delivery. Strong metaphor. Awesome job!

This one rocks. Tight guitar, angstry vocals, and solid rhythm. The song arc is turning into a saga Smile

Beautiful! It could've gone a bit longer (maybe 1 more verse?), but it was still awesome as is. Great work!
