Hi guys,

I've been working on this progressive metal song named "Medicine" for about a month now. I've done most of the composing in my head and with my guitar, but the drums and bass I have done with Guitar pro. It's not death metal or epic metal, more like in the style of Tool, which I consider to be somewhere in the middle of heavy rock and metal. So this means I have taken a lot of influence from Tool.

The song is now in the middle and I'm a little stuck. Before continuing the song much further I'd like to hear your opinions about this. Please remember that I'm just an amateur and not that good, but please be honest. I f you think it's no good, then say it. If you find something missing, please tell me.

Oh, and as you'll notice, this has taken a huge step away from the traditional 4/4 time signature, and has instead lots of odd grooves like 5/4 or 9/8.

I hope to make this a good song and then record it - and make even more songs.

All feedback is welcome!

Oh, I almost forgot the lyrics:

MEDICINE

It's just a harmless spiral
It's just a harmless spiral

The voices of the idiots
put an end to conversation
rats are the first to flee the ship
bu I always stay, waiting
the spiral.

How much longer will he
have to put up with this?
No one said it would be easy
to walk and keep breathing
I know.

Chemistry builds the reality
as far as I know it.
With the aid of medicine
changed the point of view
for a moment.

After a moment of falling
I return to my love
Breathing smoke I remember
vaguely that it is not
over.

Having gone past
the point of no return
it's just a matter of time
before a person snaps.

Having done it at last
but also having learnt
nothing, all sanity subsides
as all the duties come back.

My medicine's a temporary release
from the insanity the world is.
It's just a harmless spiral
maybe pointless, but I know:

I need it
I eat it
I live it
the medicine

The medicine

As reality is crumbling away
I find some kind of rationality
in the things I do now and everyday
in the beautiful world that it is.


-Kristian

Thanks! smile.gif I've been busy with the instruments so I haven't been able to figure how should the vocals go - the track's empty. Any ideas appreciated!

Sounds cool to me. The influence of Tool is very clear. Nice job on the bass and drums as well!
