Description
It's been awhile since I've had some spare time to make a new song but finally I was able to. So far this is just the sound bed. I tried to go for a more 80's feel. In the future I will probably write lyrics for it but I think for now it sounds fine on its own and I wanted to share it with you all.

Nice beats
and a very cool, melodic set of riffs here. Uplifting and dramatic - makes me think of New Order in places (I'm a huge fan btw...) I like the descending notes in the break and the shift into the chorus again. Nice arrangement. I'm excited to hear what you do with this as far as lyrics go. Thanks for sharing. Nice work. Peace.

thanks dajama!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am glad you liked it. A lot of us grew up on 80's music so I tried to capture that 'sound' I hope it was successful. Thanks for stopping by

Great sound
you've posted and when the full melodic part came in it sounded to me quite ABBA-esque, so I think it would sound good too with lyrics, maybe sung with an updated ABBA style. Sounds good too as is of course, regards M

Thanks for sharing
It does have an 80s feel but it also has a undertone that I cant place my finger on. Cant wait for the finished piece!

Euro-beat!
This is quite a very pleasing reminder about the Euro-80's and all the great things associated with it... the pulsing beat and the soaring melodies. Certainly a very welcome change of pace after the emotion-drenched ballads. :-)

COOL
I like this a lot, but have to ask, did you intend to have such a harsh sound with the drums? I think I like it, but it gets a little overwhelming. I 'm not sure where I stand on it yet. I really liked the melody and the instrument sounds. Very cool. I think this song would be great with lyrics, but is strong enough to stand alone without them.
