Hi there, Paolo here. Thought I'd give a couple of your songs a listen, my ears appreciate the sound!

Never Wrong:

Screams Creed to me. But I think Creed are (were?) gid. And from I hear they've broken up, so you could just go sook up all their fans and fill the gap, as it were. Sorry, the song, I continue. The intro is immense, I can just imagine myself standing in a big crowd as the stage slowly is unveiled (lit up :rolleyes: ) with that sound you've got.

Far Away:

Weird one to place this one, again I can definetly hear Creed but also leaning over to Punk/Emo with the guitar riffs. Again solid composure and the recording is professional enough for most.

Erm, if anyone wants to expand on/dismiss my comments then das cool, it'll be beneficial for the band to get a fuller feedback anyway!

Later,
Paolo

wow, this is really good ****, and you'll have to pardon fenwood, he isn't impressed by your nomination because he gets nominated for awards almost every week. Keep it up dude, and good luck. by far the best stuff i've heard on this site so far.

wow that rocked!!! very professional sounding. if you got a keyboard player id say you sound like a 21st century doors. everything was solid. keep playin you guys will get noticed. the only thing i would recomend is getting a less generic name. but other than that great.

thanx guys for all the feedback. we do appreciate it. u guys took the time to listen and review and thats cool.

Inspired - "never wrong" was sort of an ode to creed so there r a lot of similarities. i can see the "big intro" live too! hahaha. nobody has called "far away'' punk/emo before, but thats cool tho. people interperet things differently.

Collapse - vey nice compliment , there is alot of good music on here by fellow musicians.

Fenwood - thanx for clarifying and the nice words

i am milk - 21st doors...thats awesome, our singer is a huge doors fan and love jim morrison! i will let him know.

thanks guys

not really my bowl of soup but being a musician I can see that you guys have talent and have the potential to get somewhere. You do kind of sound like creed, but that's not such a bad thing. Nice recordings, nice vocals, nice guitars, nice drums. No complains here. Good luck with your musicial carrer.

Nice stuff man. I'm listening to 'Never Wrong' right now and I'm really liking it. Nice hook in the chorus. Nice solo.

wow very good, i hope you guys do well. the songs were very good. the vocals were very good, and the guitar was too. i really like the guitar solo on Never Wrong. the drums fit in well with the music too, and this is one of the first really smooth well recorded songs i have heard on these forums.

aww come on sky, better than being in it to sell out for the money!!!!

yea thats true inspired

but how many bands do you know that want to "make it" you mean there not sell outs? i would like to know your def of a sell out so i can label all the people i know who want people to hear there music and get paid for it. thats so very wrong.

honesty is good, we appreciate it...our newer stuff that we have not recorded yet is somewhat of a departure from the 3 songs on the site.same type of music, just not so creed-ish.the newer songs have elements of dream theater, the cult, zakk wylde and a few others. maybe u might dig some of that when we post it, or not. but at any rate we do appreciate your honesty...thank you.

not my kind of music, but it was a good recording and i can see why people like it. did you go to a studio to record?

we spent 8hrs in a local stuidio, if we had more time and money we could have done more with the 3 songs, overall they r pretty good.
