  • ScuroFantasma Reviews up now man, hope you like it. Sorry it tool longer than I anticipated.
    June 22 05:46 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Hey man, I know I told you that you could expect the review sometime this week but I've been too busy this week and haven't been able to complete it. I'm still listening to you're album though and it's really good so you can expect an honest and positive response. Plus, I released that Amity Affliction review this week and I'd prefer to have a little time between reviews, so it should be ready some time next week. Just thought I'd let you know that I haven't forgotten :).
    June 12 04:15 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Sure man, I'll no doubt require some additional info before I put the review together, but that won't be for a little while. I like the album art too, how'd that come about?
    June 6 03:20 AM
  • Judio! :) Sweet dude! Be sure to let me know what you think after you give it a listen! http://aslowdescent.bandcamp.com/album/utopias
    June 6 03:07 AM
  • ScuroFantasma I've been listening to you LP man, great stuff. I've only been through once (long album) but I've enjoyed it. I'll probably release a review for it next week sometime. I need a few days to absorb and understand the music and then another few to write the review.
    June 6 02:46 AM
  • Judio! No problem, thanks for letting me know about it! Also, if you're interested I just released a new LP for my solo project. I can give you a link to it if you want.
    June 5 06:10 PM
  • ScuroFantasma I'll give it a listen for sure man, I've done a few sput-user album reviews before so I'd definitely consider it for my next review.
    June 5 07:00 AM
  • Judio! Hey man, just jammed Archaic and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. Brilliant work dude, seriously enjoyed it. The atmosphere of each track and the album's flow made the album's concept really clear and interesting. Jane Austen, Changing Seasons, and Oh My were definite standouts. Sorry for putting it off for so long.

  • syco722 Hey man, I haven't been on here in ages but I saw that you finally put out that full-length you've been working on for a while. I'll be spinning it a good number of times over the next week or so to get a feel for it and let you know what I think. Glad to see you're still writing brother!
    May 30 06:17 PM
  • XingKing If you're interested, the next time you record a song, I would be happy to try mixing it for you. As for me, I'm still recording away at my next record. I just got the artwork done recently and it's gorgeous. I'm also writing an EP with my friend that will feature Thunder from my soundcloud! We should be dropping a new song once we record it
    May 25 08:44 PM
  • laughingman22 and thanks for listening and rating my album
    May 25 04:21 PM
  • XingKing Your compositional skills have drastically improved on your new LP, man. Keep it up!
    May 25 12:04 AM
  • Scantily ...and you got Innocent No More all right, it's about a rape-victim, I was very glad that the vision had passed through on that one.Fun to hear from you again, hope all is well.
    May 24 02:17 AM
  • Scantily Hey!So nice to hear from you! Yes, it was an honest review, but that was what I liked about it, I really had developed a similar opinion about Pure Ash Tray. No you did not, more the other way around 'cus at that point I had already started to develop some of the material that would end up on this new one, I've been thinking about that review and what your opinion would be on Dissolution. Nice! Yes, if you feel like making a review on it feel free to do so, would be interesting to read.

  • NationalRadio So do I. I could maybe help a bit but I'm no pro
    May 22 06:44 PM
  • NationalRadio what program are you using?
    May 22 03:01 PM
  • NationalRadio The actually music and notes are really good. The production is holding it back (which I'm sure you might feel the same). If it was professionally produced it could be the most epic thing ever. Really. Like really epic. Sitting at like a 3.75 for me
    May 22 01:40 AM
  • NationalRadio Sweet I'll check it out in the morning
    May 21 01:00 AM
  • Judio! lol no complaints. Still gotta jam your album, will hopefully get around to it today.
    May 20 05:56 PM
  • Shuyin thanks man, but the songs sound awful in media player, something about the wow effect and low frequencies.. idk, ill fix it and re-release the whole thing when i have the time
    May 20 05:37 PM
  • Shuyin yea, some ambients/tribals/post rocks and whatever, space theme. but the production is bad.. check this song, if you dig then you may actually enjoy the album http://mindofanantagonist.bandcamp.com/track/eta-carinae
    May 20 05:26 PM
  • Shuyin thats all there is to it, when i force myself to write something it always turns out lolbad, but when i do it for the fun theres actually interesting stuff happening, also, i wanted to stop at 69 but then i went all kvlt n stuff
    May 20 05:19 PM
  • Shuyin sweet, im really digging these synths. i was listening to the stream but after checking the first song i just had to dl the whole thing, so chilling right now
    May 20 04:56 PM
  • Shuyin im halfway through and damn, those guitars are top notch and everythings really well written and levelled
    May 20 04:41 PM
  • Judio! Sure thing dude, will give it a listen when I get home from school. :) Also, if you still have any interest in checking out my band: www.sugarysweetmachines.bandcamp.com
    May 19 02:33 PM
  • Insurrection not a bother man, always up to listen to some new music especially from a fellow sputter. will listen in a few
    May 19 01:17 PM
  • CaptainDooRight thanks bro, i would, will check when I get a chance
    May 19 10:31 AM
  • Shuyin cheers, im at work atm but ill check it when i get home
    May 19 08:43 AM
  • Scantily Hey! You reviewed my album Pure Ash Tray a couple of years ago, and since I've been working on the follow-up. It's done now, under my new artist-name Rikky, you'll find it on www.rikky.bandcamp.com . Would love if you could review it, I thought the last review was really good and this new album is really something different compared to the first one.
    May 18 09:42 AM
  • OmairSh Nah I haven't, been considering it. You?
    May 15 03:31 PM
  • OmairSh Sneak preview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKaBwbqEcCA

  • CaptainDooRight also hey fripp is puttin together a sput collab album, feel free to contribute a track if you'd like, his list is featured on front page
    March 25 05:00 PM
  • PitchforkArms i liked it a tad more but i adore both. its a little bit more dynamic for sure.
    March 9 06:33 PM
  • PitchforkArms hey dude did you check out Locktender's new record?
    March 8 04:12 PM
  • OmairSh THERE'S A FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRE IN THE SKYYY
    October 13 09:09 AM
  • UnnamedOcean I haven't listened to it quite enough yet. It was overall very solid, but didn't grab me as much as Garden Window, but that one was quite a grower so we'll see.
    September 17 12:26 PM

  • apert haha haven't even thought of 100 dead rabbits for years, truly terrible band. I had noticed your profile before but dismissed it as a coincidence, but when i saw that post on facebook and checked your sput profile i was pretty sure you were the same person. First person i actually know on the site
    August 29 09:51 PM
  • apert yeah, we're friends on facebook, I'm Pete Thom btw. We must have at Iwerne a few years back all out mutual friends are people i met there. I won't mention it then, the school i went to is pretty much as posh anyway. Really small world
    August 29 09:38 PM
  • syco722 Thanks brother, that means a lot! And that is fantastic. I've been wanting to hear some of your midi tracks with real instruments for quite some time now!
    August 27 01:14 PM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_tNNK7WJng
    August 23 10:20 PM
  • syco722 Hahaha no problem man, I hope you enjoy it! I've been giving your album a few spins lately and I've decided that "Cauterizing Astral Wounds" and "They Never Knew What They Missed" are my favorite tracks. Any plans for new material, good sir?
    August 21 10:01 PM
  • Deviant. Oh wait, someone had put the release date for the album as June, which would have made it a little late for a feature. I've changed it, and featured it!
    August 21 07:18 AM
  • Deviant. Remind me over the weekend and I'll feature it (only because the album has been out for 2 months already)
    August 21 05:20 AM
  • SucDePortocale thank you very much sir
    August 20 07:25 AM
  • OmairSh That's cool, where did you go might I ask? I haven't even checked the old kayo dot, where should I start?
    August 13 11:35 AM
  • OmairSh I WIIIIIIIIIIIIITHEEERR. Checked out the new DT track?
    August 12 03:59 PM
  • OmairSh Niiceee, how was the vacation? Been jamming Leprous hard and checking out some ambient stuff.
    August 12 03:59 PM
  • OmairSh alive?
    August 11 01:27 PM
  • syco722 Hope you enjoy it, my man. http://wheremountainsmeet.bandcamp.com/album/a-place-once-called-earth
    August 8 11:17 PM
  • Gintoh Could you please add the fact that there is yet another new kayo dot track streaming on npr in the news. For some reason it wont let me add the news: http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2013/08/01/207932250/vikings-choice-kayo-dot-sums-up-a-decade-of-sonic-transgression-in-thief
    August 2 11:30 PM
  • Insurrection haha glad you like it man, seriously one of my favorite albums ever. you should check the human abstract. theyre a similar prog metal style but without the insane operatic vocals
    August 2 04:49 PM
  • ChuckyTruant Yeah, I have a Bare Knuckle Painkiller in my RGA. It is very nice. Super super defined and very clear. Decent harmonics and great note separation. Oh also tons of sustain and not very compressed at all. Unfortunately just its uber tight bass and EQ curve make it a bit thin and weak. BKP makes real nice(albeit super expensive) stuff
    July 31 10:58 PM
  • ChuckyTruant It was my old 7421 from 1999, but I ended up with Dimarzios. Evolution in the bridge and Liquifire in the neck.
    July 24 02:04 PM
  • Insurrection i gotta say kezia is still my favorite pth, you should give that one a shot. a lot less wank and more emotionz
    July 23 04:06 PM
  • Ignimbrite Well, that's by far the best track on the EP, but the whole thing is still a solid 4 and the rest is still really good.
    July 23 12:26 PM
  • Ignimbrite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xVg4CpxNQI - this song is why you need to get the Isis EPs, or SGNL at the very least. brilliant, overlooked stuff.

  • XingKing Thanks for submitting my album to the Review Game, man! Atari just told me about it. Hopefully something good comes from it :]
    July 5 06:31 PM
  • Atari you get the honors of reviewing death in june - but what ends when the symbols shatter?
    July 3 11:50 AM
  • elbaliem same here, i wish they could come here but it's almost impossible.anway, i've got warren of Ohms(the one you submitted to Atari's game) to review
    July 3 03:37 AM
  • sonictheplumber I am staff.
    July 1 05:10 PM
  • syco722 So far it is about as different from Neutrality as it could possibly be haha. I'm really not sure how to describe it, but I really hope you enjoy it man!
    July 1 02:33 PM
  • elbaliem nice username.so you are a big fan of anathema, do you ever watch them live?
    June 29 01:08 PM
  • elbaliem agreed,judgement is such a grower,but i don't have an account on last.fm
    June 29 12:56 PM
  • syco722 No problem man! It's a great album, I knew you were more than able to put out something fantastic like this. But as a matter of fact I just finished up the first song for the new WMM a few days ago and the writing pace for this one is slower than ever, but hopefully I'll have it finished by August.
    June 29 11:55 AM
  • elbaliem how long you've listened to anathema?i found them last month and i love it.
    June 29 11:48 AM
  • UnnamedOcean Well keep up the good work! I'd like to hear what you can do by embracing the electronic and ambient parts.
    June 28 11:43 AM
  • UnnamedOcean There is some really interesting stuff I like on your album. Some of the electronic bits are very cool. The album art is nice as well. I'd be interested to see what you could write in a band setting.
    June 28 03:02 AM
  • heyadam I'm diggin' The Last Arboretum man. good stuff!
    June 28 02:05 AM
  • syco722 Just finished my first listen and I've got to say I really enjoyed it man. I was using some decent speakers for once and I forgot I wasn't listening to a signed band for a good while there, so great work on both the production and music (also I really dig the artwork). I'll be giving this a good number of listens in the very near future and beyond broski.
    June 27 08:22 PM
  • FiveLeavesLeft Sure bro! I'll get on it tonight :]
    June 27 04:19 PM
  • Jom What's your album so I can have a look?
    June 27 12:30 PM
  • UnnamedOcean You should also look into Vessels. They used to be buddies with Oceansize and they have a new album coming out as well.
    June 10 11:34 AM
  • UnnamedOcean Also here is another song from their EP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBhbCC5DP74
    June 6 10:31 AM
  • UnnamedOcean O'Brother is amazing, one of my favorite bands after Oceansize and Vessels. You should get both Garden Window and The Death of Day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uflJpjdmyG8

    May 22 07:58 PM
  • Insurrection Well since you already love bloodmeat i guess the obvious choice is fortress, plus that was the one that got me into them hard. glad to see youre finally checking em out

    April 22 02:53 PM
  • DarkNoctus thank you very much!! i'm currently working on a split that should be out within the next month (a much faster song, rather alcesty but heavier) and the album should be out before the end of the year - it's all written, all ready to be recorded. 5 songs, about an hour in length, one song 25 or so minutes long. i'm excited to record it!

    April 16 08:01 PM
  • OmairSh Yes you do my friend. Yeah I think it's a decent album, has some good feels even if the production is average and the album feels linear.

    April 2 04:41 AM
  • Yazz_Flute Well, if you don't have access to a live drummer, I'd at least suggest lowering them in the mix - especially during sections where they're most exposed. Definitely keep going at it, though.
    April 1 06:49 PM
  • Yazz_Flute That's not really a knock at your writing at all, if you noticed; I thought there were some good ideas present. And it goes without saying, but nothing that say in anonymity over the internet should hold much gravity if you're personally satisfied :)
    April 1 12:57 AM
  • Yazz_Flute A lot of it had to do with the production of the drums and synths. Part of it may be that I'm a percussionist myself, but I just loathe hearing drum machines/filters. I think you presented some motifs with potential, such as the piano in the first three tracks, but you didn't expand upon them as much as I would have liked.
    April 1 12:55 AM
  • toxin. Yeah, most likely you will find stuff to enjoy in Native.
    March 31 06:41 PM
  • syco722 Alright apparently I lied, I just finished up the review and since it's my first, it has to be approved, but it should be up soon! My apologies if it's just horrible, writing is not one of my strong suits haha.
    March 21 03:25 PM
  • syco722 Thank you so much, that was a damn good review my friend. It really does mean a lot that you care enough to actually take the time to write out a review, and hopefully you'll enjoy my review as much as I enjoyed yours. I wrote the main bulk of it last night so hopefully I'll have it finished tonight! I'll let you know once it's up; I sincerely hope it gets you some more fans because you certainly deserve it.
    March 21 02:33 PM
  • syco722 I'm absolutely loving it man. I've started on a review but of course my abysmal and horrific lack of writing ability is making it rather difficult, so we'll see how it turns out! But hopefully it won't take too terrible long.
    March 20 07:43 PM
  • syco722 Ah yes! Will listen to this multiple times today my friend; hopefully my brain feels up to the task of writing a review for you once the album has sunk in enough.

  • OmairSh "Volte-Face" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXD9jKRHs3A, "I Turned You Down" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut0nPZVCNPQ. I love the funky bit on Volte-Face, great bass tone.
    February 13 02:28 PM
  • syco722 That sounds so awesome, I'm going through the old EP just to prepare; I'm glad I could be something of an influence my man, surely your music will sound a hell of a lot better than mine though haha
    February 12 03:35 PM
  • syco722 Haha no worries man I know exactly how that can be, I hope you find some time soon though! Also stoked to hear that EP so keep me posted brother.
    February 12 01:29 PM
  • syco722 EY DAWG, how's that album coming along man? I hope you're close to finished, but of course art takes some time.

  • OmairSh There's a lot of passion in classical Pakistani music, we also have a s*** mainstream scene like everyone else, and you have to dig deep to find gems. This songs Indian "Madari" the vocal melodies are trancesque http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQEaZC4-yXQ, Incredible vocals on this one -
    February 11 04:24 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah SLS is a gooood album and Volte is good and has some great transitions, but SONGs is growing on me. But Riversides older stuff is fantastic dude, I know you'll enjoy it. You should also listen to "I turned you down" and "reality Dream 3", terrific songs.

  • syco722 That's great man I'm stoked to hear some recorded material from you! If I find the words then I'll definitely attempt a review. Be sure to let me know as soon as you've got it up; I'm honored that my music can be compared to yours haha. As for the compilation, it's really the start of what I've decided to do with WMM from here on out, which is to annually release a collection of EPs and wrap them all up into one release once the year is finished. Shooting for some major sound changes this year.

  • OmairSh I thought you would've enjoyed Escalator Shrine
    January 22 04:15 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah they played it very safe with this one, it's their most "mature" record according to the band leader, and it shows. It's not really commercial but I think they wanted to increase their listener base, and you can't blame them. Well on the plus side if you decide to check their other albums out you'll hopefully be pleasantly surprised. I've made a list ranking their albums and EP's.
    January 22 04:14 PM
  • OmairSh So you've got the new Riverside
    January 22 09:16 AM
  • DarthMann im busy too man, i still havent done that much yet but ill give u shout when i get round to it
    January 21 05:49 AM
  • DarthMann opps forgot about that can u link me again? also did you end up getting yo line in s***? im writing some stuff and itd be really cool if someone could help me with some guitar solos/licks that i dont really have the ablity to play/write
    January 20 07:27 PM
  • DarthMann hahah bro the dear hunter never stood a ****ing chance
    January 20 06:04 PM
  • OmairSh The atmoshperic elements of the bands music is what made me fall in love with them but I was hoping they'd balance the aggression and ambience with the addition of experimental elements. Anyway patience is the best virtue, or so I've heard.
    January 18 04:49 AM
  • OmairSh I thought you were American. Anyway yeah let me know when you've done The Beginning and the Ends solo, but I'll have to be in the right mode to appreciate it fully :P. Btw I read a few reviews of the new Riverside and it turns out it's much more atmosphere inclined without too much aggression, quite like their debut. So if your friend like the riffs of Celebrity touch he miiight be slightly disappointed :P, guess we'll have to wait and see.
    January 18 04:29 AM
  • OmairSh Whats your youtube page btw?
    January 17 05:19 PM
  • OmairSh I've heard the latest 2 albums properly and they focus more on the atmospheric aspect of the bands music, a few of the older songs are different, some are jazz fusion inclined, some are techno inclined and a little quirky yeah. But their latest album is definitely worth listening to imo. Lots of emotion and passion up in there.
    January 17 05:10 PM
  • OmairSh Have you heard No-Man? No-Man is another group of Steven Wilsons (actually it's his first band)
    January 17 05:00 PM
  • OmairSh Damn I think he has the potential to love the band more than I do :P. Hopefully the album will be good, it's being released in Poland tomorrow, you guys in the US have to wait a few weeks longer unfortunately.

  • Yazz_Flute 100% Restless Oblivion, 90% Flying, 80% Harmonium
    January 16 05:05 PM
  • Yazz_Flute I'll take that one too I spose.
    January 16 04:15 PM
  • Yazz_Flute How about you, creator?
    January 16 03:56 PM
  • Yazz_Flute I got 100% for both New Pin and You Wish.

  • OmairSh "Celebrity Touch" Official music video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAqU-RDnYyY
    January 14 12:13 PM
  • OmairSh Celebrity Touch has some great riffs and the guitars and keyboards sound great, esp the Hammond (The keyboardists idol was Jon Lord and his influence seeps in a lot, but in a very very good way, plus I'm a sucker for the Hammond Organ :-) ). But I'm hoping for some more edgy and refreshing music from their upcoming album, fingers crossed.
    January 13 02:10 PM
  • OmairSh The bands renowned for mixing incredible atmosphere with some great aggression, and recently they've been focusing slightly more on the aggression, but they do both really well but it was definitely the spine tingling atmospheric elements that made me fall in love with them.
    January 13 02:08 PM
  • OmairSh Check out Celebrity touch and I turned you down on youtube if you want. Damn it feels like I'm friggin marketing the band, aight I don't mean to sound desperate I just think you'll dig this band.
    January 13 06:44 AM
  • OmairSh Oh cool, hey even I'm not sure how that album will turn out and don't want you to get turned off from the band if the album isn't good, but it's your choice (plus you've already pre-ordered :P). The first single "Celebrity Touch" is on youtube. You could download SLS?
    January 13 06:35 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah so far it's a high 3.5 to a 4 for me, will listen to it when the mood is right, but I think it'll be extremely difficult for Weather Systems and WHBWH to be bested. Oh and getting Riverside, cool but I don't want to raise expectations so, yeah the band's aight I guess, meh whatever. :P.
    January 12 10:10 PM
  • DarthMann will check when i have the time whatever it is lol
    January 12 07:37 PM
  • OmairSh Eternity by Anathema? Yup I have it, need to listen to it more though
    January 12 06:38 PM
  • OmairSh Most Played: Anathema, yuuuup :D
    January 12 06:06 PM
  • OmairSh Okay maybe I shouldn't have added the "even" before Presence because I absolutely LOVE presence. The Hammond Organ sounds gorgeous, the atmosphere is fantastic, and of course then there's Lee. What's the name of your youtube channel?
    January 12 06:04 PM
  • OmairSh It's ironic how I used to scoff at people who claimed that Anathema were better than DT becasue the guys in DT were technically proficient and blah blah. It's only recently that I realised how powerful Anathemas music really is, and these latest 2 albums are a whole other level. I mean I think even "Presence" has more emotion and is more memorable than the whole ADTOE.
    January 12 05:53 PM
  • OmairSh Learn it and upload on youtube :D. In the moment I think the solo has to be one of the most powerful I've ever heard, it doesn't just compliment the music, it takes it a step further. JP focuses way too much on trying to incorporate all the styles into one solo, when he should just let it flow. Kind of sums up DT in a way.
    January 12 05:48 PM
  • OmairSh I'm continuously wetting myself to The Beginning and the End, mother F*cking ethereal perfection. That solo is better than any JP solo.
    January 12 05:31 PM
  • IdiotequeCigar Wow, best EP I've ever heard, 5/5. Will now listen
    January 12 09:00 AM
  • OmairSh Riverside, get on it man seriously!
    January 7 06:21 PM
  • talesfromthevagina I think dark souls was released for xbox overseas, you can find it on amazonhttp://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/179-5715771-7017503?url=search-alias=aps
    January 6 12:39 PM
  • Fluttertrank listening to it now, its pretty good man.
    January 3 04:08 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah do that, they're worth it. That's all I'm going to say on the matter, will want you to make a judgement without many expectations.
    December 24 11:31 AM
  • OmairSh Yo Johnny you should check out Riverside (Polish Prog) if you haven't. Their debut or SLS would be a good place to start.
    December 24 11:28 AM

  • DarkNoctus not really, a line of deathless kings is kind of forced and immature, a map of all our failures is a lot more mature
    December 13 04:01 PM
  • DarkNoctus a map of all our failures
    December 13 02:05 PM
  • syco722 Haha February isn't too long to wait, I'll be looking forward to it man. I might even attempt a review at it if I feel up to it; I've never given it a shot before, but I want to get your music out there and give it some attention.
    December 9 10:18 PM
  • syco722 Hey man, I just listened to your demo after a tough day at work (much needed) and holy hell I've got to say, if you give this a proper recording treatment then I'll be giving this a spin all the time. The entirety of Dreamscape in particular is fantastic; you've got a really unique compositional style dude. Keep it up, I'll be sure to check out anything you happen to put out in the future and will continue to listen to this in the mean time. (also, Quail is heavy as I'm not sure what, \m/)
    December 8 07:46 PM
  • syco722 Of course, anyone who listens to Cloudkicker, Opeth, and Porcupine Tree is definitely going to write something I'll enjoy, so I'm really looking forward to it man. And I appreciate that, I probably had the least time to write this most recent one, and it was planned as a full-length, but other things ended up happening, so it didn't turn out quite how I wanted. But as long as one person liked it then I'll consider it a success!
    December 4 05:46 PM
  • syco722 No worries man, I've written plenty of demos just the same way! Stoked to hear it
    December 4 05:31 PM
  • syco722 I actually didn't get it copyrighted man, I don't tend to care about that sort of thing because I don't believe my music is good enough to sell and if someone were to "steal" one of my songs and claim it as their own then I just feel like that's on them for lacking creativity and not writing their own tunes haha. I know that wasn't helpful at all, but do let me know once you've got that demo finished! I'd love to hear what you've made, my friend.
    December 4 05:11 PM
  • LjudetInnan It's up to you. If you think you could do it I would appreciate it very much. :)
    November 25 04:26 AM
  • LjudetInnan Hey! I've really digged your reviews. Was wondering if you could do a review on the debut album by Byn Vacum: www.bynvacum.bandcamp.com
    November 24 02:41 PM
  • KILL yea was really awesome, set list was really heavy, they ended with blackwater park so ****ing good
    November 21 07:18 AM
  • Jacquibim Why have you still not 5'd the Gallery? D:
    November 18 01:00 PM
  • Insurrection nice cloudkicker rules. well let me know when you put that out cause id be interested in listening to it man
    November 15 09:30 PM
  • Insurrection lol sweet what genre is it?
    November 14 07:46 PM
  • DarthMann im just bout to go to school so ill check em out later tonight, im still waiting to hear back from a lot of the guys i got interested, but anyway i gtg school right now so ill elaborate more in like an hour
    November 4 03:05 PM
  • DarthMann ok skype it is, much easier than facebook anyway. Whatever we want man, we could put covers in an album full of original material as well, heaps of bands slip them in. Yeah send em through man, and ill check out the one in kills box. Don't worry so am I, but once it's past Christmas I'm hoping to spend pretty much all of January on this, so yeah it's hopefully gonna rule
    November 3 09:34 PM
  • DarthMann alright man I know you (sputnik-wise) so i don't need to like interview you or anything haha, but s***ty recording is fun until Christmas or whenever you get your better thing, like until then I won't be doing too much activity either. Anyway we gotta decide on a method of communication (skype facebook wateva), so yeah, hit me up with what your thinking
    November 3 04:54 PM
  • Insurrection that sounds really cool man, is that your band?
    November 2 06:19 PM
  • KILL sweet dude you got the sweeping down nicely, just the timing was off, but i'm guessing thats just because you couldnt hear the song loud enough
    October 19 03:57 PM
  • syco722 Thanks for listening man, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. The majority of people on here seem to like Frontier the most, though I can honestly say that I put more work into Journey Well. Give Frontier a shot, hopefully you'll dig it as well!
    October 15 04:36 PM
  • evilford cool. Panopticon was my favorite for a while, then Oceanic's amazingness hit me. you shouldn't be disappointed. I think Panopticon is a little more accessible so you might need to be patient w/ Oceanic, but it should be worth it.
    October 12 03:59 PM
  • evilford cool...and you haven't heard Oceanic yet? oh man it rules. it took me years to get into ISIS but damn it was worth it when it clicked. (this was before I loved Neurosis) I can't decide anymore if Oceanic, Through Silver in Blood or Symbolic are my favorite albums (besides dark side of the moon of course). rules so hard...have you heard any ISIS?
    October 12 03:53 PM
  • evilford lol...I see your predicament. honestly dude it probably doesn't even matter. my personal recommendation would be to stick it out and keep going chrono, but I know I would be curious as hell for the new one too. I jumped around when I was getting into them and they still ended up being my favorite band, so either way you SHOULD be fine ;)
    October 12 03:47 PM
  • MichaelSnoxall You'll more than likely really dig Grim Heart/Black Rose.
