General Comments

This is a hard song to describe using the current check down list available. It's aggressive but it's more philosophical than agitated or angry. The song is about change and keeping dreams alive. It's a very positive and meaningful message. It reminds me a lot of AC/DC and Guns N' Roses. Strong guitar riffs and driving percussion. The vocal could have used a little more effect to make it more biting but that's subjective...the vocal got the song across...I really liked the contrast in the beginning. The song slowly builds and then explodes in double time...Anyone into hard rock either retro or contemporary would enjoy this song. The reason I chose dreams as the hook is because every verse and chorus mentions dreams.You are a talented guitarist and you showcased your talents in this song. You also displayed a good sense of arrangement. In my opinion the percussion could be turned up in the mix...it was drowned out slightly by the powerful guitar. There is room in this arrangement for more of a live drum feel but again that's subjective...This song gets a very high mark from me. I enjoyed listening to it. Good job and I would be surprised if this song isn't used in a TV show or as background in a movie. Pitch it


Quote From Pro:

Symetria is a rock force to be reckoned with. Strong vocals and excellent driving guitar solos will keep you entertained and keep bringing you back for more. Symetria has one foot in retro rock and one foot in today's rock. Whichever you prefer you'll find it in Symetria.
