Hey, my band have just started recording our first original song and im doing vocals, I also wrote the song although it doesnt have any verse lyrics yet.

I was wondering if you guy's could give me an honest opinion of the entire song, its not 100% done and isnt mixed properly yet, I just want to know if were heading in the right direction and maybe things that could be improved.

were not looking for perfection as its just a quick demo at the moment until we get enough to get it done proffesionally.

Cheers
Chris

The drums are really problemtic in my ear, ussually the problem is that the band doesnt play with the drums. but here it sounds that the drums don't really fit the song.. I'm not a drum expert so I can't get into detailes, but they just sound wrong me..

Song Idea as a whole is preety cool, the chorus is very strong, solo idea is nice but could have been playd more convisingly I think. bass is preety dominant but in a good way.

Try fixing the drums and I think you'll be on you'r way of making a great song!
