Tear from me
While i'm on my knees
Raping me

You've taken
My ability
I wander aimlessly

Contempt, I have
For serenity
Forsaking me

Tear from me
While i'm on my knees

Interesting song. I like the eerie vibe of this tune. Lots of potential to be a really cool song.

Great intro, hooks the listener at the beginning of the song. Was really enjoying where it was going. Harmonies are placed nicely throughout the song. Really wanted this to last a lot longer.

The guitar solo work is great and I love the choice of distortion and tone of it too. I also like the choice of chords and the clean electric guitar sound. The vocal phrasing and dual vocals harmonies sound great when they are in key (from 00:48 to 00:52, I definitely heard some Alice in Chains influence)! The guitar solo builds the song really nicely too.

Cool tune and recorded well! Nice job with the instrumental performance, definitely have your chops down.

Great ditty, I like the phrasing and hope to hear this one fleshed out!
