Hey, while it's #1, which I actually don't know how it got there. Please take the time to review!
So this is a cover of Moonshield by In Flames, but it's not done.
I have done everything but the rythm guitars, that's for the rythm guitarist of my band to do. He's either doing it this weekend, or the next day off... Depending on how we are feeling after hitting the bars for my 18th birthday.
UPDATE: You know what I think? I think I'm gonna put MY take of the rythm here, and the final version done with the rest of the band will be put on reverbnation. So the "Official" Cover (Consisting of Dusty's bass and Tyrell's rythm) will be on reverbnation, and my cover will be here.
This also marks a personal achievement: getting better at playing guitar.
When I first heard this song, I tried to learn it, and couldn't. Now I can... How about that?
You want lyrics? Here they are!

Tired of dull ages, I walk the same ground,
collecting the tragedies still
Hollow ambitions in a hollow mind
carried my cross to the hill

And how I lust for the dance and the fire
deep of the nectarine sunset to drink
spill me the wind and its fire
to steal of the colors - I'm the moonshield

Shattered hope became my guide
and grief and pain my friends
a brother pact in blood-ink pen
declared my silent end

Naked and dying under worlds of silent stone
reaching for the moonshield that once upon us shone

LONG Acoustic interlude

Naked and dying under worlds of silent stone
reaching for the moonshield that once upon us shone

And how I lust for the dance and the fire
deep of the nectarine sunset to drink
spill me the wind and its fire
to steal of the colors

I am... I am... I am...
I'm the moonshield...

Finally!!! MOONSHIELD!!!!!!!!

this song kicks so much ass....and you did a good job covering it. of course some tweaks need to be made to make it perfect..but the fact that you did an in flames song is epic enough. 5/10 keep reaching for the moonshield that once upon us shown....

Pure-Metal-UTA responds:

Why thank you very much!
On the note of tweaks, what tweaks need to be made?
Thanks for the review!
