It's terribly hard producing something thats new so every comment is a big help in refining the songs. these demos are very (VERY) rough. the cd is progressing nicely, when you mentioned special market philbymon, we are actually targeting the surround sound listeners with this stuff. we have been working on doing mixes in stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 surround, and the results so far are very exciting. Next up is to find a label to set up a distribution deal with and put a band together and start doing this stuff live! fun times.
thanks for all the words guys
1st you have a great attitude when being given criticism. That shows a willingness to learn and humility, definitely two things IMO that are critical in becoming a better musician.
2nd I listened to it. I love Heavy Metal but my ear is never bias. I used to love that type of sound, the 1st song does a bit like an 80's new wave with a punch of industrial without being too much of one or the other. I really like that mix of styles good job. If that is you singing you have a good voice and it should be in front a bit more.
The second song is not my bag and couldn't get into it but with a better production it should be great live.
The third song (the begining) reminded me of a song I just did called "SOULLESS" but cooled off into a nice mellow feel. You might want to rethink some of the songs to add some buildup. That last song would have been very good IMO if you had a strong build up and added some strength to your voice and music to accentuate it and bring the listener emotionally with you, sometimes if it is a sad song about love then the build up will make the listener FEEL the song and what you are telling them.
Ok enough about that, I ain't no professional musician but I am a professional listener and like to sing and record like I am bringing the person into my song.
Good job overall man. Keep me posted on your journey.
\m/ HAIL! \m/
