It's time for a full song release! My band is about to drop an EP. The entire EP is dropping as soon as all of the songs sound like we want them. That's within the next few days. We are a new group (just the two of us right now haha) .. perhaps amateurs at best and too poor to spend hundreds of dollars to get it produced. However, we are very happy with the results and hope to bring you awesomeness in the next few days. It's been a long two years. smile.gif

https://soundcloud.com/fireball100/our-hope-is-here-pre-release

The EP will be free to download from SoundCloud or Bandcamp. If you choose Bandcamp, there will be bonus content included. I will also post a YouTube stream at some point to promote it. I am also running a website, which will launch at release.

Here's the song lyrics:

Can a man hide himself from the One who made the sun?
Does he reap what he has not sown?
In the light of His kingdom all these will be known.
Until it is ended, until He descends from the throne,
To the end which every brother seeks.
We have been upended and pressed by everyone who speaks.
We can rest our weary souls for our hope is here.
The battle has been won, the prince of darkness vanquished by the Son.
When the archangel cries, the trumpets are sounded.
The dead, they will rise, damnation for those who have touted.
At the things we cried, we have something that mortal eyes no longer see.
I long to see our way made up to the Father who brings glory to His name.
Our day is nigh. Our suffering will be replaced from on high with eyes that shine.
We can rest our weary souls for our hope is here.
The battle has been won, the prince of darkness vanquished by Him.
We can rest our weary souls for our hope is here.
The battle has been won, the prince of darkness vanquished by the Son.



Thanks for your time.
-Brandon

I'm so pleased for you Brandon, you've worked long and hard on this, and it really shows in the end results.

Great guitar tones and playing, everything sound so professional.

Lay back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

I know you've posted about the process as you've gone through it. Would you mind posting about it all in hindsight. What you've learnt, what you'd do differently next time etc.

Hey Brandon! Congrats on the tune and the forthcoming release of the EP smile.gif I think that you have done a great job here, especially with the given conditions! Looking forward to the whole product wink.gif

I am curious biggrin.gif Did the intro in our song 'Grace' inspire you in any way? I would be very glad to know it did biggrin.gif

Thank you man. smile.gif It's amazing that it turned out so well given that all of these songs were originally written and guitars recorded over a year ago. I have actually thought about making such a video over the past year. I am going to get with Josh and see when we could do such a video, (if he wants to be in it too).

Thanks Cosmin. smile.gif I have wanted to tell you for so long that 'Grace' inspired my writing this song. smile.gif It's been so long since I originally recorded it that I can't remember if it was an intentional writing or not. Either way, I thank you for the encouragement along the way from you and everyone else.

This EP is a compilation of many, many techniques and styles I have learned. My writing style has slightly shifted since this EP, but it's a special piece of art in our hearts. smile.gif

Hey Brandon! Congratulations on this first EP! I can feel a very special energy coming from this song, that artwork and your comments and description. This is a very important first step in your life and musical career and I'm happy to know that we could see the evolution here at GMC. I wish you all the best with the release and off course, I hope to see you playing this stuff live anytime! smile.gif
