Title: MEL -Digital Brotherhood
Filename: dbh.s3m
Posted Sun 16th May 1999
Rated 9 / 10
It gives the impression of an amiga going crazy or something, really catchy song. Not to much of anything really, perhaps to much treble.. This one would fit perfectly in a game. Effects everywere. Mostly for the sfx in the songs, but also plenty on the other instruments. Lots of samples in varied quality, some old samples in quite low quality, some new in good.

Title: Time Tells its Tale
Filename: Damngood.s3m
Posted Sun 16th May 1999
Rated 4 / 10
It begins with a spooky-like piano piece, and continues into a classical piano piece with strings and drums. Its a bit too chaotic, the solo seems to totaly have lost it, but still it has a spooky feel of death.. Not any effects used. Maybe the piano and strings could use some, but otherwise there is not much needed. The samples have fair quality.

Rated 5 / 10
Ever plaid WarCraft 2? Its sounds a bit like those, it has a powerfull beat and well tracked chords. Still, the strings are a bit to loud and the solo is a bit grey. Its a well made song, but it lacks the touch of professionality. Not many effects used, hardly any in fact. The strings could use some fade ins and outs, and the solo some vibrato or tremolo or echo or something...

Title: MEL -Daylight

Rated 8 / 10
It gives the feel of daylight, by its strange chaotic, but also melodic sound. It is on the edge of being too chaotic, but it never steps over it. It has a solid beat and chords. Melcom uses lots of effects, and he uses them professionally, still, some more echoes with panning would be good. Sample qualities are good, but not great. Some of the drums have really low quality.

It has a good beat and professional sound, but it should really be more varied. The bassdrum and the bass keeps the songs beat throu-out the song, and the 303-like seq. is good. It could use some strings, a solo or something. If it was burnt on a cd, it would sell. Not much effects used in this one. Some offsets on the seq. but not much more, and that probably is not needed either, since it only uses drums and other short samples. An echo on the seq. would be nice though.

Title: Death Departure
Filename: departur.xm
Posted Fri 14th May 1999
Rated 8 / 10
In the beggining you get the feel of emptiness, and after that an angel-like choir comes in - very good. The solo tends to sound just like Terminator 2 some times, this is sad, because this is a really good song. I can't get the feel of Hell though, even if it's sad. Lots of effects used in this song! Nearly every instrument has an effect to it. The flute could have some more, and the marching drums could need some more variation to sound more natural. This is a professional song, when it comes to tech.

Title: . Ode to Duke .
Filename: d_duke.xm
Posted Fri 14th May 1999
Rated 7 / 10
The song begins with a classical piece that sounds good, although some notes are wrong. The song is rushy just as a duke nukem song should be. The electronic/synth part of the song is really great. Its refreshing and keeps the song varied. The Soul Stealer uses lots of effects, especially on the guitar solo. The solo could use some echo or something though, because it sounds quite un-natural. The end is very poor, it seems like its unfinnished or something. The samples are good, but not outstanding.

Title: Walk The Earth

Posted Thu 13th May 1999
Rated 3 / 10
This song could be quite funky and cathy if it only was varied. The beat gets grip of you but after some patterns, you get bored. The bass has a funky touch, but also needs to varied. Deepj seems to know what he is doing, using echo'es and pattern lengths and varied tempo. In the beginning he uses a fade in and in the end the tempo slows down, this sounds good, but it takes to long. As said, the song needs to be varied and the samples has a quite low quality.
