Well these last months I have learned how hard it is to complete something when

You have got a baby in the house
Your windows disk crashes
Your vst instruments freeze every other Cubase session...
rolleyes.gif
Nevertheless I finally have got a new mix for you - and as always I really appreciate your comments. I am not 100 % sure about the sound yet - any help is welcome!

Lyric wise this song is about one of the most peculiar phenomenons of our century: Modern men who organize themselves to go kill each others (and kill innocent people as well) in wars. You'd think our brains would have evolved enough for us to find other methods of solving conflicts.

REAL MEN DON'T FIGHT

Attached File  real_men_dont_fight16.mp3 ( 9.06MB ) Number of downloads: 768


I pray for your compassion
I live just like a mole
My life is free from fashion
Come join me in my hole

No more we fill your cage
No plan is worth the price
One final act of rage
So roll the dice

Calling all men left on board
Real men don't fight

You kill for your distraction
You murder just for fun
The time has come for action
Our vengeance hits you numb

We conquer with our minds
We combat just with words
Our tactics leave you behind
Deserting hurts

Calling all men left on board
Real men don't fight
wars

SOLO

This song is dedicated to all the pathetic leaders of the world
Who haven't yet learned to use their brain instead of their muscles
To solve conflicts
Thereby murdering millions of innocent people

YOU can change this
If the leaders in your country are engaged in a war, don't accept it
Go out in the streets and protest! Be a man!
Not one more war

Calling all men left on board
Real men don't fight

Do you know why all these warheads choose to use their muscles instead of their brain?
- Because they don't have any brain
Let's get rid of their muscles too



edit - old mix here:

Love the sound!

Minor typo,
its "ROLL the dice, not role"
But I think you knew that:D

And, to be honest,
I dont think " we combat with.." is a proper sentence, we combat, is not possible, sorry.

"Because they dont have any brainS"

Big mamajama solo man! love it:D

I like the voice in the mix, it goes through pretty well. Riffing sounds powerful, the combination once again reminds me of Metallica with a scent of Rammstein (no german this time!)

Really? I am into deep then...hmm does "Our combat - just with words" work better?

Thanks Fran - yes the intro riff is quite Rammstein-ish isn't it!

The problem here is that 'Combat' is a noun, not a verb!
So..
'We make combat just with words' or 'We make Combat with only Words' would work!!
Or 'Our Combat... just with words' also worksd!

Apart from that....

I like it Kris, as already mentioned a cross of early Metallica and Rammstein!!

Argh - hope to get it fixed!

Thanks anyway! biggrin.gif

edit - I looked it up and it seems "combat" can be used as a verb (well according to Google Translate at least! blink.gif )

Yes combat can be used as verb I've heard that in use several times.

I'm currently listening on laptop speakers so I shouldn't give any mix comments, but I think the song itself is very good. Nice tight riff and cool vocals, cool metal song! smile.gif

wow man! this´s awesome!!! I love the song, the attitude,the strength of the voice, the riffing, all!!! really really like it!
from my point of view, always you sing with a message you´ll express yourself in a different way.
is not the same to sing: "This song is dedicated to all the pathetic leaders of the world" than: "oh, look at that Blue Cow" x_X you know what I mean.

congrats! glad to see this side of you! \m/

Very nice riff man! I really like the few solo notes after the power chord. I have to say I'm not very fond of your singing style, but I think that is just personal taste, since other people have said they really liked it! Some cool sweeps in the solo man!
