It's alright. Nothing I would personally go crazy over.

Well, I'm not to keen on growling vocals (other than early Paradise Lost, My dying Bride an a few select others..),
but the song is pretty good from what I can hear smile.gif

I won't comment on the sound because I'm at a laptop at the moment..

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes its the quiet voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow.

the transitions are very bad, from acoustic to electric, from whole to bass lead. I listen to many death metal bands, your singer's growls are very strange, the variations of voice are a bit odd. The riffs are metallicaish but still good, although the drums were to loud at some times, think the toms are a bit high. The solo also seemed metallica because the licks seemed randomly tied together. I really think there's potencial if you fix these mistakes. You made a song where the connections don't seem right, another one is the one where there's tapping in solo. I'm guessing your drummer likes to do many different things but the guitars aren't working for those changes. I believe the verse was the best part but the wierd use of vocals made me not realise that until the second time I heard it. Maybe it's lack of effects also. Noticed just now when the bass started to play that solo line, that it seemed you where changing meter over and over again. The Solo, again, since I'm listening to the track many times, seemed to vary alot in styles. I'm guessing you're two guitarrists because one sounds alot better than the other, use of scales, theory knowledge. Overall, potencial, but a no from me for this recording, lots of work to do be done IMO. I'm not trying to put you guys down, just saying this in order for you to improve IMO, so don't take it the wrong way smile.gif

The intro is actually very good, forgot to mention that

I think your singer should stop singing in the growl voice because he can't do it right. It's not a bad thing really, but if a person can't do growl, then he should not pursue it more in that style of singing because he will destroy his vocal chord.

I cant say nothing bout singers in this style since im not listening to it.... but to me, the drums seems to be out of sync with the rest of the music, and the singer seems to be out of sync with both the drums and the music... Sorry, so it sounds to me. But the intro is nice!
