From Fortune to Flame

By Jokinen on July 5, 2020 11:38 pm

This is my usual "write two songs and put them together" style. Had the first idea that I wanted to continue with but couldn't find a chorus so went with another idea I had. I think it fits sort of well and I had fun writing it. Went out on a limb with some different vocals I haven't tried before with recording, so I have that going for me. Hope you enjoy!

I really like how the saturation sounds on the vocals starting at 1m20, the outrow is very cool.

Hate getting a solid verse but not being able to come up with a chorus.  I attribute many of the songs in my graveyard of unfinished tracks to that.  This is cool as hell though man, you made it work.  That transition at 1:20/2:55 is huge and pretty awesome.  I dont think it would have sounded like it was borrowed from another track if you hadn't said something.  Love the outro too, cool way to finish it up.

Thanks, the outro was a fun one to make. I always want to speed things up but reserving it felt right.

The aggressive turnaround was so surprising, really goes up to 100 quickly. The vocals are fantastic, I love the raw energy in the upbeat sections. Solid tune all round.

It fits perfectly. Great vocal performance too.

Thanks man! It was fun for sure. I really need to work on transitions since I have a two-sided idea to most songs but I'm glad you enjoyed it!
