oh well, this is still great, i like the powerful guitar sound you have, if i can suggest a very versatile amp, the line6 Spider III series just came out and they are sweet.


As soon as I finished listening to this, I had to play the Egypt levels of Serious Sam, just to blow it all up.

Awesome stuff, man. Catchy too. This gets my five.

mhb responds:

thanks man i appreciate it. glad that you thought of serious sam 'cause of this.


Now you made me hate Egypt. No, I'm kidding. Love the Industrial touch. Kind of reminded me of old Ministry. Just needed the distorted vocals. Anyways, awesome tune man.

What kind of pedal are you using? Sounds like my old one.

Thanks for your vote, Bad_Man_Incorporated! You voted 5 for sands of hate, raising its score from 4.00 to 4.11.

mhb responds:

lol! thanx man. im not using a pedal. just my amp. 100 watt peavey transtube supreme. thanks for the fi5en!

nice tune short stuff

just listening to your tune as i type this, it's a pretty cool track, though not much goes on compared to your other stuff, maybe thats an intentional restraint though. it's a good loop mind.

the lead is nice and the rhytnm behind plus that synth are all good, i just don't think the tone of the lead is as smooth as it could be, it's 'screechin' more then i feel it should really, maybe accentuate the lower register to make it fit a bit more. it's all good though. i mean i can't do this stuff. anyways it's 9/10 and 4/5 but if 4.5's were done thats what it would get.

peace out


mhb responds:

thanks man. i'm glad somebody commented about the "synth". the only synth on that track is the bass and drums. everything else is guitar. the heavy riff is guitar, the lead is guitar, and the part that sounds like a synth is guitar. and yeah this track is crap compared to my other stuff but i wanted to try a different approach at somethin' that i had in my head. glad that it wasn't too bad. :-P


It's always good to hear some metalized world-music, and this is no exception. Nice simple shred accompaniment, and the arpeggio is very cool too.
The lead kicks ass, but is played a little sloppy, that's nitpicking though.
It could do with a B-section as well, and a dynamic increase... I hope you make this longer.
Another lil' suggestion: have the bass play a little fill now and then in the last half of a measure.
Kickass, as the summary says, I'll have to check more of your stuff.

mhb responds:

thanks man! yeah the lead was done in a weird fashion. definitly not my normal way of playin' and recordin'. i was thinkin' of makin' it longer but at the moment i'm not sure where to go with it.
