Had 3 under half written songs and ended up with this. The inspiration for the end is with whats going on in the world. Hope you enjoy!

Eerie track dude, hopefully we dont get quite to this point with the whole virus thing though.  I like how you set this up with the rain and everything, and that intense panning is wild on that cymbal swell thing.  Very appropriate track for where we are right now though.

I wasn't expecting the switch up!! That drum build up to the message is just perfect heart I love how it comes back very violently with the people screaming, extremely effective!

Damn.  Eerir af.  I love what you did with the cymbal build up.  Perfect sound choices and guitar tone.  Nice work, definitely conveyed the fear.

Thanks dude. The song took a weird turn when I found that siren, haha.

Glad you enjoyed it! I figured mass hysteria couldn't be conveyed unless there was panic screaming.

Thank you! You stay safe as well. I'm curious to how quarantine or whatnot will impact our song choices in the coming weeks.

For real. I'm hoping laugh. That'd be best case.

Nice atmosphere in the beginning but really take a dark turn halfway through.  That siren / horn and warnings makes me think of The Purge movies.  Your track is very cinematic.  Would make a great movie!

Very enjoyable track especially when it turned dark.

Enjoy? I am going to have a panic attack. I'm going to go listen to Captain Corona to calm myself.
