opening guitar too compressed, reminds me massively of early idlewild, hope that aint a slight but it is. I know, coming from me especially, your dirty rhtyhm...it's too dirty, in that it dominates the track. But by joe, what a track. and ur on drums u say. fuck me. its missing a touch of subtlety, you need more licks earlier. the vocalist is briliant. your drums are exquisite (sp?). now this isnt 10/10 for a few arbitrary reasons, the middle 8 redeems alot of the minor faults, i just feel there could be more space afforded for each musician to express himself, it's 7/10 compared to it's genre 10/10 on here.
Agreed on all counts I think chief. I basically took on the task of drummer because I wanted to learn how to play the drums; this is my questionable level of skill after a little less than a year I think (I have thankfully progressed further since this recording). Its recorded OK for a live studio track but as you say the drums are too present and the bass is nearly nonexistant (we actually have a really decenet bassist). Wasnt mixed by me unfortunately so I cant go and remix it! :(
Thanks for the honest review, thats the best kind!
Cool shit guy! Not my type of thing but sounds fun to play! Drums sound sexy as hell.
Yo Jon cheers, to be honest with you its not my type of thing either...unfortunately Im barely holding it together as a rock drummer nevermind progressive metal ;). Thanks for the review man!
Like the 5th time I listen to this! I danced the entire time! AWESOME!
hehe great man glad you enjoyed it so much! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review :D
MOAR DANCING :P
Song construction is solid, man. Head-bobbin' rhythm, guitars aren't too showoff-ish (big plus in my book), good driving bassline, and (contrary to what you say) the drums lay down great jam rhythm.
Vocals are indeed good, and I love the overall the grungy sound. Pump out summore =)
Yo dude thanks for the uberfast review! This was a live recording done on the first take so there are some minor problems (too much crash cymbal, muddy bass) but overall I think we were able to whip this out pretty fast to a pretty good standard. I do like the song, its our final song at gigs and it seems to round things off nicely for the audience.
Glad you liked the song and thanks a lot for the review :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
