From across the universe they came, responding to a signal sent by man including a sample of our culture - music. Like wild fire this "rock music" spread across their world and they became infatuated with the human race.

They are here, reaching out to us, a warm hand of friendship raised to the air, the sign of the devil horns, a common greeting and sign of mutual respect used on Earth.
"We have come to rock with you!"

A serious idea of music being the gap between cultures but the metaphor of aliens etc is not to be taken too seriously. :)

Verse 1
A signal to the stars
We beckon them
A dream of yesterday
Warp drives
Full power
Rip in time and space

Rocking to the sky above
Rocking to the dawn of time
Rocking to the stars at night
Find a place among them all

Verse 2
Chosen one of the human race
Your story, down in history
They greet you
Devil horns in the air
We've come to rock with you!

Rocking to the sky above
Rocking to the dawn of time
Rocking to the stars at night
Find a place among them all

Language of the stars
Let's rock!


Rocking to the sky above
Rocking to the dawn of time
Rocking to the stars at night
Find a place among them all

A million worlds
A billion words
A single truth
An infinite of stars
The infinite void
We rock your world!

Well yea.

Damn better player than me. Well mixed. if a bit middley. I try to explain this in a way peeps understand. Your levels are too high. Drag that volume back.

5 though, it's brilliant


MetalRenard responds:

Agreed, I used to mix things too hot. Since then I've looked into mastering some more and now I obey more recent standards and keep things to acceptable standards for digital distribution platforms. Well spotted!

Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it.

The synth at 0:22 was tasty as hell man! Great work here, cool vocals, like the harmonies you did with it as well!

You're awesome dude

Pretty gnarly song dude! :D

Just a little more bass and a little more depth then it would be perfect.
