Evil is afoot
Yessir. That's great. The evil is more in yer face this time. Diverse set of instruments. Really slick how you worked in the voice effects and the tympani(?). Love that when the guitar comes in at 1:55. Big and bad. What is that zipper sound? Mix is excellent. My favorite of yours so far.

Thanks RP
It means a lot having you say my mix is good! Your songs are SO professional..thankyouthankyouthankyou

That Zipper is just an analog synth that I tweaked to get that sound. That was my favorite part too, That guitar was originally the start of a solo, but having a shreadfest (or at least my attempt at one) didn't suit the song.

Glad you liked it , thanks again for listening.

Downright Sinister
If a movie was ever made about Dr. Zhivago sailing to Cape Fear for vacation, only to find that his summer rental was on Elm Street, this would be the soundtrack! Thoroughly enjoyed all the hidden surprises with the headphones.
(I only mention Dr Zhivago because the recurring balalaika-like strumming)

Yes indeed! Freedy's voice just went so well with my idea for this track. Glad you got to hear it on headphones.

Thanks for listening, man. I really enjoyed your song, "gumball parade"

I like a good doomy riff
Nice black riff going on! Felt like the guitar could do with a bit more bite to it at the beginning, although it more than makes up for it later. Vocal snatches worked really well. Good job.

Yeah, I am also into doomy riffs, some of my favorite songs are so depressing - and SO awesome!

Thanks for the listen and the input. I really appreciate it.

Okay..
I got chills at the spoken voice. I'm guessing this a nightmare that never ends. Sounds very professional. We do like to be scared, don't we? Thanks.

Bad idea
listening to this just before going to bed. Especially in the inherently dangerous atmosphere of being on a ship with nothing below but fathoms of chill, dark water!

As with the other parts, very effective, though uncomfortable work. Shows imagination and talent.

Taken as a trilogy, very creative and impressive.

Well done.

Thanks Marc
That is great! Glad to lend to an already frightening atmosphere!

And Now you have given me the urge to do a song about a Haunted ghoast ship that only reveals itself in the dead of night upon dark waters...Mwahaha.

Thanks for the listen!

Masterful Writing
Love the orchestral intro and the booming drums in the background. The array of sounds, ear candy, and effects is really fun to listen to when accompanied by the song. Love the guitar solo. Great guitar sounds. I almost wish the guitars were a bit louder or had a bit more low end, but that is minor. Great Stuff. Downloaded.
