I know right? I usually am "meh" on many prog bands vocals, but these guys do it right. Not to mention STACEY D giving Petrucci a run for his money!!

Thanks for the comments always good to hear some feedback of what the 'outside world' think.

We recorded the EP ourselves on the cheap (for free!) mostly thanks to our drummer who produced and mixed it. Drums and vox were recorded in our rehearsal space, and we tracked guitars through axe fx.

Here's the other 3 tracks:






If you'd like to download it (for free) it's out on bandcamp too:

These tracks all have a very cool "organic" sound that is very refreshing. Real drums! It's getting more and more rare smile.gif He did a great job on the production and you guys have killer material. Huge props for creating a unique sound and writing compelling songs. Keep it up!!
