...to my band! If you think we rock or suck, any feedback is appreciated! The style of music can be described as metal but with melodic parts aswell, so its not just full on screamin! We have been compared to bands like pantera, soilwork, machine head, pissing razors. We're also from England so it'd be great to get a perspective from people the other side of the world! You can listen to 3 full tracks HERE! (http://www.myspace.com/elysiumshift)

Cool!!!!
Good production, guitar tone and song structure. Singer reminded me a bit of more recent James Hetfield crossed with wasisface from the Prodigy (if that makes any sense).
Nice one. Good tracks.

It's really good, but it sounds like you've tried to become the stereotypical metal-band and just used that sound instead of looking for your own sound. I find a lot of bands these days try to be some other band instead of trying to be themselves. Sorry if I'm wrong, but that's what I think. That in mind, however, the guitars and vocals are very well done, I just think they could be more original.

Yeah, that's the guy (Keith Flint). Maybe it's that aggressive "Londoner" tone, but I might be way off base......
Good stuff.

Thanks dude! I don't think we're trying to sound like any particular band, i mean, we all have our own influences like everyone else but thats the sound and style we just happened to be like. When we started out like 9 years ago we were the typical nirvana wannabe's :eek: but i think we've found our own style over the years as we've become older and more mature, our musical tastes have changed too, for the better hopefully! I think the style and our sound reflects that. At the end of the day though your still gonna get compared to other bands so i totally know what your sayin dude. Thanks again for the honest comments anyway, its appreciated!

Dude, thats fair enough man! If you don't like metal then i wouldn't expect you to like it, just like i wouldn't expect everyone who likes metal to like it! That'd be nice though! Anyway, thanks for taking the time to listen to it, we appreciate it :thumb:

This stuff is great. I am not really into this style of metal as much as others, but its good all the same. The drummer has some serious double kickage going and it pwns.
When the melodic part came in on 'leech' the singer sounded like machine head I reckon.
Anyway yea it was good recordings and fairly well produced all the same.
Once again, I prefer thrash metal and stuff.

Awesome stuff man. Few Audio Arena bands have impressed me and I think you are great. I get a bit of a Fear Factory vibe from the music. Any influence from them or is it just me? Anyway, keep it up.

You can't PM on these forums, you'll have to use email or something to contact people privately.

Edit: You sound very tight as a band and all have good tones/production, but I agree with the person on the first page that said you sound very generic.

I really like your band. The melodic aspect of your music really appeals to me. Sometimes the riffs you use do seem a bit overused, but overall awesome job! Keep up the good work.

I like the website, it looks very proffesional. But to be honest the music wasn't very original. It's good recording quality though, for the type of music that you're playing it's great.
