It's been too long since I've heard a song here with lyrics. Okay, English lyrics. It's a very happy song. That's probably what makes it all the more entertaining with what the song actually says. It's certainly the most upbeat apocalypse song I've ever heard. Yeah, it beats "The End Of The World As We Know It".
You have such a good singing voice. I love the use of trumpets. It was also nice to include the lyrics. I probably wouldn't have known this was a song about the apocalypse if not for that! It's just that it's so happy sounding!
dood, loved this, can i use it for a movie?
It's on Newgrounds, so I guess that means you can if you want to, but I'd rather you didn't.
This song convinced me to sign up to NG again to start posting stuff and rejoin the community.
the only thing i can even nitpick about this song is the funny sounding kick at :55.
its good to hear some awesome ska here!
Man, our drummer is the guy who recorded the whole thing and mixed and mastered without any sort of training save what he's learnt from messing around with recordings since he was a kid, so if you've got any comments that can help him get better at what he does, fire away by all means. Also any drumming tips, he wasn't exactly a drummer when he started with us so he's still learning.
Thanks for the review! It's nice to know we convinced someone to rejoin the NG community.
Wonderfully mixed, the song is full of that ska spirit too! Beautiful guitar tone, catchy melody within the brass and vocal parts and lyrics well suited to your concept!..... Man I wish I was in a ska band with you guys!
Then you should totally move to Adelaide, South Australia dude :P If we can have a dedicated cowbell player, I'm sure we can find something for anybody. Although, we already have 7 members, likely getting an eighth soon... hmm. I gotta think about this stuff :P Thanks for the review!
Reminds me of Rancid. Keep up the good music.
That's odd, I don't think any of us listen to Rancid much. I have one of their albums, but we draw more influence from Aquabats, Mad Caddies and Porkers.
We certainly shall keep up the music. Hopefully we'll get a few more tunes up on here by the end of August, if all goes well.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
