Congrats Ben!!

I have barely started a track which I would love to include on an instrumental EP biggrin.gif But that's a project that has just started smile.gif first of all, I am waiting for a link where I can buy yours and enjoy the works of a talented guy that you are! Godspeed mate!


Thanks C-Man.. writing instrumental stuff is definitely different to songs. I think it's tougher !!

Well done Ben! I started to mess with my original CD too. Finally I have all needed stuff. Now I need to rethink some phrases to make sure they keep the melody flow and some more dynamics + to make it all have sense as a full album...You know the feeling it's all one, common story.

You're album teaser sound ass kicking. It really brings up some good memories - tribute to metal classics. I think many people will like it smile.gif Congrats!


Great - your album must be next ! biggrin.gif

Bit by bit we may all release one (or more !)

QUOTE (Gabriel Leopardi @ Apr 7 2014, 02:32 PM) *
It's a perfect album! I love it.


Yeah it's got everything.. quality songwriting and interesting, varied production with loads of atmospheric effects that add to the songs.

Makes total sense smile.gif Also, from a marketing perspective, your recent VIRAL VIDs have given you some great name recognition, so leveraging that during your promotion phase on the new record and using your name on it is a great idea IMHO smile.gif

Yeah I don't blame him.. if you're the main creative force behind something then it makes sense to either make it obvious that it's your project or just go solo.

Yeah, I wanted The Reckoning to be a band of like minded comrades but it's incredibly difficult to do as finding the right chemistry with people who have the same goals is ridiculously rare. So I evolved into a D.I.Y. approach because I could do what I wanted and had only to please myself smile.gif

Aye Ben! It's tougher because you need to pull off some extremely good themes that can catch up your listener's ears and mind and make sense in the same time. It's like talking with another organ, instead of your mouth.. As I see it right now, I for one am not ready to put out a full album, but maybe a 3 song EP, that could be possible smile.gif

It has a gloomy vibe I can see some misty moors looming in the pale sunset light as the green grass hills are casting shadows biggrin.gif Very nice! And that wisdom video is amazing as well - I shared it so that everyone can enjoy wink.gif

biggrin.gif I have a very, very vivid imagination and I can see almost everything I hear instantly smile.gif So that's something I will do all the time biggrin.gif if you are curious, I will tell you what I see for each tune on your album biggrin.gif Maybe I can sort out inspiration for you, so that you can write a graphic novel?

Amazing - what an achievement Ben! I am jealous to say the least!

I am listening to it right now and I can tell you it sounds like how I wish all the shrapnel records would have sounded! Production is excellent as well.

With the pace you're advancing you must be absolutely high on life?! blink.gif
