This is an extended version of a track I previously created called Below Zero. I had a few comments stating that the original was too short. It's not so short now. The original version was created only using Evolve. For the extended version I used a lot of different things. The direct link sounds better than the Soundcloud one which sounds very swishy (if that makes sense) to my ears. Thanks for listening.

Very ominous, unrelentingly driving track. Then just when you think it's all fading away it comes back on you hard. Only crit. the stereo panning is a bit extreme on headphones. Otherwise, job's a good 'un.
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Nice work. Now it sounds like a complete, satisfying piece of music.

I think folderol makes a valid point about the panning. I would also suggest avoiding some of the massive sounds (huge guitars, big explosion at the end) in favor of more subtle sounds. I realize you are trying to create excitement but it is possible to overdo it.

I really wanted to reintroduce the big guitars, go out stomping and then... obliteration. Yes, the ending is not subtle, but it made me smile.

I also tried to get the wide panning. It's just something I like to hear in music, especially with headphones. It's something to consider though. I don't want to be considered a pan whore.

Thanks for the useful feedback.
