good tack

In fact it's so good that I was about to ban it for being stolen...
No, it's not a joke.
After all the issues were cleared out we're happy to see that good bands actually post their best songs on NG.

5/5 10/10

LOL thanks man that means alot and i'm glad we got everything cleared up Brokensaint is gonna keep posting our shit on here and start letting people know about newgrounds

Thanks again

great stuff

wow im impressed due to the fact that this is your band's first song. You seem to have a good harmony toghether because it's noticible in the music. it's seemless, its 1 song. The vocals sound unique, in a raw way i havent heard much. He should try to bring more stability to his tone-controll, he shifts just a little bit off time-to-time. All i have to say further is try to work on originality, and you could really go places. 5/5 10/10

Sicdrummer responds:

Thanks a lot man the kind words do mean alot
and we have new stuff that we are gonna go record very soon hopefully you like them also

Never Post At 6:30 AM...

You posted this at 6:30 am. Not a good time to post. lol That would be why nobody listened to it, nobody was awake bud! But that is about to change. ;-)

As you know, my opinion is slightly biased, being family and all. But let me try to write an objective review.

As for the overall sound, I like it. Has a nice rock groove to it, not sure how really metal it is though. Definitely more rockish. The riffs are pretty simple and straightforward, which is alright for this style of song.

As for the drums, they change consistently with the song. And you added some nice fills here and there to keep the listener interested. I like the tom sound you got, I could never get any sound from your toms in the studio. So I'm a little jealous about that. :-P Not sure I like the kick. It doesn't sound like it was compressed at all, and is too low in the mix for my taste. But after the sessions we had in the studio when I EQ'd the kick for Motus and Soul Stealer, we all know how much I love massively compressed kick drums!

Vocals, eh, the only thing about the song I don't like. I don't want to hate on the vocalist, but I'm really not into that style of voice. I think the closest I get is with Chrome Division, but they are a biker rock band. Completely different sounding band to go with the style of vocals.

The song itself is very radio worthy. Catchy riffs, with a melody that can be followed by anyone listening. Not really anything happening harmonically other than the bass and electric guitars. Very straightforward.

So I'll give ya 5/5 and 10/10, cause I can! The only issues I have are with the kick and the vocalist. And I can't hate because I don't like the vocalists voice. That really isn't fair. And the kick, well I'm stuck in my ways so I know it wouldn't be fair to hold that against you guys either.

Nice job bud!


Sicdrummer responds:
