They Pray (Before They Kill)

DISCLAIMER: This song has harsh screaming/distorted vocals. If you don't like this style, leave now. There's really no point in leaving a bad review just because of the vocals.

That being said, I'm releasing this song after several headaches and a computer crash. I posted this on NG once before, but I had a lot of problems with the vocals, so I pulled it. I finally got enough time to rerecord the vocals and re-release the track. I really like the way this track turned out. Hope you all enjoy!


Deep behind the ocean
In the Pacific specifically blue
I want you to tell me
All the answers that they gave to you
I don't know why you think you're here
Or why you say you're stoned
Surely I'm not the only one here alone

I don't trust a single word you said
I don't trust a word you said

They try to come on in
And show me that this world is real
They pray before they kill

Another victim of the innocent
Lost without a mind
I tried to give you everything
But I lost it all this time
I don't know why I think you're here
Or why you say you're gone
You never spoke to me
Has it really been this long?

I don't trust a single word you said
I don't trust a word you said

They try to come on in
And show me that this world is real
They pray before they kill
They kill!

They pray before they kill!

Meh... Wait!

Oh WOW. For moment I thought it would be shithouse. I've rarely been this wrong before! Brilliant!

... Oh crap, that solo blew my mind!

Nessbeatsfox responds:

Cool! Glad you liked it!

Nice track!

Reminds me alot of atari teenage riot and mad capsule markets.
Vocals are awesome in my opinion!
The mixing could be a tad better but seriously I love this.
Check out my work and let me know what you think!
Keep up the good work!


Nessbeatsfox responds:

To be honest, a lot of this song was influenced by Atari Teenage Riot.

this is really awesome!

just turn the vocals up...can barely hear it and you can sing/scream/whatever really good!

Nessbeatsfox responds:

Cool thanks!


I checked out some of your songs after reading your reviews - and I'm glad I did.
This song is pretty good written, and I like the authencity of the drums.
The vocals are too muffled for my taste - but I haven't really pulled any points from them.
My main concern with this song is the guitar tone not being heavy enough - it just sounds a bit more punk/rock to me than metal.
I really loved the solo part- as well as the screams.
Anyhow: 8/10 and 5/5!

Nessbeatsfox responds:

To be honest, I completely agree with you. The problem with this song is I spent so much time on it, then my computer crashed and I had to rerecord it. After a while I got so tired of working on it I just rushed it, and it shows. One day I'll go back and remaster it, but it probably won't be for a while. Thanks a lot for taking the time to review!


The song is great, the vocals too. I would make the vocals louder, because they are kind of lost in the sound of the instruments, but it's just my opinion/suggestion. Still, awesome work.

Nessbeatsfox responds:

You know, I actually thought the same thing about the vocals, but you're the first one to say that. I may go back and make them louder, but the song was such a pain to write, and I don't wanna mess with it. I also got used to the way they sound, and changing them will just screw with my head... But thanks a lot for the review and the advice!
