Hey guys!
Here it is, this is the "first" track of my EP which will come by the end of September, beginning of October.
It won't figure on the EP though as it is only a "prelude" to what's to come. The sound itself won't be the same as this song, especially for the vocals, which I recorded quite a while ago. If you want to stay tuned, you can go check my facebook page or my soundcloud, on which I'll keep posting updates and stuff! :)

Nice song man, you have a nice sound aswell, can hear it all very clearly and stil the sound is pretty brutal, voice fits in well to. The only thing i miss is a little soft part somewhere in the song, just my opinion i gues, i just like that cause then you can build up to a heavier part again and it will most of the time come off stronger and heavier, again just my opinion do with it what you want ;).

and yeah i agree the people who vote 0 and leave no review should be fucking banned or something.

Ahah yeah fucking downvoters, hate them with a passion >:]
Yeah I tried to do something similar with the small break near the end, before the "chorus". Yet it was kinda hard to add a really soft part, I didn't want it to break the general mood/rhythm of the song.
Anyway, thanks a lot for the review man!

Great job on the vocals. Also I totally love your style. The only thing I think you could possibly improve is the clean vocals... They just sound a little too plain, like a backup singer rather than taking the center stage by force (like a great metal voice should do). Just my thoughts though. This is still amazing.

Rock on dude \m/

TheRealSam responds:

Yeah it was kinda hard to place these cleans, especialy finding the right melody. Plus, I didn't want them to "take the spotlight", but mostly to add a little something to the song, something "original" (even if most metal bands nowadays add clean parts to their songs). Anyway, thanks a lot for the review!! :)

I don't know, if it's my because of my computer sound settings, but the lyrics are kind of difficult to make out beyond the Music itself. Its pretty damn sweet though, even to a couple of buddies who only listen to the techno on NG.

TheRealSam responds:

Ahah thanks a lot! That's weird, I really tried to make the lyrics as clean as possible so you could understand them pretty easily :/ I guess it depends on the amps and computer you're playing this on.

Another great metal piece from you as usual. Reminds me of Saliva and also of Killswitch Engage doing a great piece together. This is an awesome piece of work, I like it a lot, good work here though, pretty wicked!!

TheRealSam responds:

Thanks man! I used to listen to some Saliva and KSE when I was younger, awesome bands, really helped me evolve musically :)
