Not bad at all Dexter. smile.gif I think you guys know your style and are in peoples face with it. I think there are some mixing issues that could be better but that will come with the final product, keep rocking man! \m/

I think there's some great stuff happening there.. the riffs have a good, Testament feel to them and I'm really impressed with the lead guitar tones as well.. is that you ? You've got good vibrato and I like the way you choke the notes with your pick ! smile.gif

As you've got a naturally clean voice, rather than a harsh voice like Slayer or Evile.. I honestly believe you should create some proper vocal melodies more like Chuck Billy or James Hetfield and earlier Dave Mustaine as your voice would suit that well.. rather than try to do the typical 'thrash vocal approach' if you know what I mean ? Your music's too good to just have the thrash style vox, it deserves the melody to separate it from the other thrash bands. smile.gif

Thanks so much Ben, your post made my day! My intentions are to have a more melodic type of singing, but I'm working on it! And yes, the leads on this song is me, thanks again!

Thanks a lot Nielz! You're not the only one that thinks the vocals is the weak spot, from the response we have gotten so far

Probably guitars can sound a bit loud? Vocals seems to be dominating... Drums doesn't sound that powerful.. definitely mixing issue I guess. love the lead parts man.. smile.gif

I like the riffing in here! aggressive!

I don't like the vocals, they should have more attitude to them

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.
