You've brought back some unwanted memories from the 90's ! laugh.gif laugh.gif

Nice guitar work man, your lead singer sometimes has a Dexter Holland vibe going on.. he might not like to hear that or he may, depending on his musical tastes smile.gif

hahaha this is pure coolness!! You did a very cool version of this song. It sounds aggressive, powerful, technical but also very funny. I also enjoyed the video and the edition. You have many views in just 3 days, this can become viral! smile.gif

Also, your guitar solos are killer. Very precise and nice to hear.

Congratulations man! Cheers to the whole band! wink.gif

Very cool video! smile.gif Love the chorus arrangement (1:17). The lead guitar work is technical and interesting.
You guys have a great video presence but what makes me wonder, how the hell did you come up with idea of recording such cover/shooting such video? Are you maybe afraid how your regular audience is going to take it? Imagine they start bringing Barbie dolls to the next concert laugh.gif

The mix sound cool but on my speakers bass guitar sounds a bit digital/muddy. Bass can be recorded very well by just going from DI unit straight to the mixing console/audio card. Mixing DI signal directly from the bass with some software modelling or real amp miced sound can give you a very powerful and natural sounding bass.

Hey mate! hah! Great cover and you picked up a good marketing strategy to hit the screens with wink.gif

People dig funny stuff and since you guys orchestrated it nicely and it showcases your skills as well, I think it can be a good way of drawing attention. See, Steel Panther did pretty much the same thing:

- funny lyrics and videos
- cheesy stage personas based on 80s glam characters
- killer playing
- catchy tunes

Aside from the cheesy stage personas, you guys have nailed it biggrin.gif I guess you don't want any lipstick or stuff like that so, stick to what you are doing and you'll be good wink.gif Any original compositions you might like to share with us?

Big thanks!!! This is the best comment I've ever heard. biggrin.gif and this is exactly what I want to achive with my solos - i want them to be technical, precise but still nice to listen to.

Thanks. smile.gif Well we wanted to cover some popular hit that everyone knows. smile.gif We are not afraid but we arent one of these "trv metal" bands, so it wont ruin our image. biggrin.gif I heard that Zakk Wylde collects barbie dolls, so thats metal! \m/ ^.^ \m/ Thanks for the tip about bass guitar! smile.gif

Thanks! smile.gif Well I have our demo recorded in 2011, so its quite old. We are playing diffirently now - I hope that we are better now . wink.gif but if you want to listen to it, please do:



Thanks again to all of you! smile.gif
We are going to record more covers like this and our original music in the future too. smile.gif

Maybe we will record whole EP this way, as I think the sound is not bad at all. cool.gif

Hey mate! I really like your vocalist's tone and his way of pronouncing the words - he sounds a bit American biggrin.gif Which is ALWAYS great for any rock band!

About the EP - that is a great idea man - if you make it all this funny, you guys might have a chance for becoming viral biggrin.gif Do you already have a facebook page, twitter account and so on? What's your marketing strategy? Have you already thought about it?

Thanks again. smile.gif

Of course we have facebook page -> https://www.facebook.com/skazawroclaw and even a website: www.skazaofficial.com

Our original music is not "funny" as it has serious lyrics, but I think we will do more covers in the future too. wink.gif

Hey mate! Just pushed the Like button to your band's FB page and I must say I like your website- seems simple and easy to navigate with a rock'n'roll design fitting the band biggrin.gif One thing tho - I noticed you guys have a gmail address - why don't you set up a [email protected] address? It looks and sounds MUCH more professional wink.gif
