  • Gameofmetal took a bit due to some technical problems but the songs should be completely done now, made the call to drop the cleans on track six though unfortunately but great work on the songs bud, really appreciate it. I figure all that's left is to figure out some cover art and then I can put it on bandcamp and youtube.

  • Gameofmetal You don't find it kinda distracting? It feels to me like there's too much happening in that section, the track needs a mellow refrain with some rising action via the drums and lead guitar coming in to build up to the finale. With the singing it feels like overload for that part as well as drowning out the instruments in one of the few places where I really didn't want that to happen.

  • Gameofmetal aight man
    February 17 03:47 PM
  • Gameofmetal Actually I think I'm totally ok with the spacey effects cleans on track 3, but I don't really think the singing works at all over the clean guitar part in track 6. Feel like that just works a lot better as an instrumental section.
    February 16 04:32 PM
  • Gameofmetal alright the rest of the songs are up in dropbox, needa know if there's anything you're not ok with before I close out the last payment. I'm still kinda judging the clean vocals, so far I'm thinking they're a little awkward at times but work at others.
    February 16 04:31 PM
  • Gameofmetal Hey are the new takes in dropbox yet, I don?t see them and my guy is asking after them
    February 10 02:00 PM
  • Gameofmetal Will do.
    February 9 04:13 PM
  • Gameofmetal I need to keep reviewing them but on first listen or two I was fine with how they sounded, a couple spots where the double tracking thing sounds odd but mostly I think it just made them sound fuller in some areas
    February 8 07:11 PM
  • Gameofmetal He?s wanting to know if you can re record the clean vocal part on track six, said he?s been having trouble with it.
    February 8 02:45 PM
  • Gameofmetal first three songs are up in dropbox, let me know how they sound to you in case it needs more work or there's something off to you.
    February 8 12:40 PM
  • Gameofmetal Just sent the EP to a friend to do the mixing/mastering and we should see the results this week.
    February 6 03:31 PM
  • Gameofmetal yeah i was happy with everything, but it's harder to judge until they're laid over the tracks and mixed in properly. im pretty optimistic though.
    January 17 03:04 PM
  • Gameofmetal The question isn't "if" it's happening, but "when". I've had a wild few months and it could a wild few more so there's no telling when this thing will be wrapped up but it will eventually. I've had this material for too long to just not release it so have no fear that your work will just disappear.
    January 15 09:53 PM
  • Gameofmetal might be a little while until you see the results, gotta get some programs and stuff around christmas and then ill get to work on my end.
    December 5 12:42 PM
  • Gameofmetal Great to hear. Will take a look later when I have time.
    November 27 09:58 AM
  • Gameofmetal yeah it was funky for me too, will take a look later
    November 3 11:31 AM
  • Gameofmetal all good my dude, wont have time to look until tomorrow because i have school and then i have to work a night shift immediately after but looking forward to it

  • Gameofmetal sounds good man
    June 22 07:51 AM
  • Gameofmetal all good man, do what you gotta do. if you have the time to spare Id appreciate it if you spent some of it on the songs, but I get that you have other things on your plate
    June 19 07:16 AM
  • Gameofmetal aye man make any more progress or have you just been busy?

    April 19 07:35 AM
  • Gameofmetal looks cool at a glance, will check
    March 12 08:58 PM
  • Gameofmetal i don't think they're terrible, just that you can kinda hear some strain in them and sometimes they don't fit the way they should but I wouldn't say don't do highs anymore or anything
    March 10 06:01 PM
  • Gameofmetal alright lol well essentially I just said that your lows and the occassional mid range thing you did some were fine, but the highs were a little off putting. The vox in general need to be lowered a tad which may fix it but i thought you could work on those a bit, generally though im liking what you're doing so keep it up
    March 10 05:15 PM
  • Gameofmetal It's specifically on the track with vox if that helps?
    March 10 04:21 PM
  • Gameofmetal left a comment in dropbox for you to look at
    March 10 11:10 AM
  • Gameofmetal They're back, not sure whod them but i didnt. thankfully there's a restore option in dropbox because i apparently don't have secondary copies anywhere else. gonna copy those so that doesn't happen again more permanently
    March 9 10:37 AM
  • Gameofmetal gotcha, just checking in. been kinda busy myself so i forgot about it
    February 5 09:26 AM
  • Gameofmetal Made any progress with the EP?
    February 2 10:30 AM
  • SmileNerd ohh haha
    December 27 09:15 PM
  • SmileNerd why the 5 on that cash grab A7X album
    December 25 04:18 PM
  • Gameofmetal cool cool, sounds good
    November 17 04:42 PM
  • Gameofmetal Oh and with regards to the name, last time i was thinking about it I was sitting on "An Old Fiend"
    November 16 03:58 PM
  • Gameofmetal i have a guy who can do it. and i don't mind some squeals if that's what you wanna do
    November 16 03:57 PM
  • Gameofmetal aight ive shared the folder to you, should be obvious where everything is. some tracks have some sloppy bits in there as a result of my recording conditions but i really dont have the means or desire to polish them up, just wanna get the songs out there since i spent so long on them.
    November 16 03:19 PM
  • Gameofmetal as long as it doesn't take you like a year plus to start we all good lol
    November 16 03:13 PM
  • Gameofmetal aight ill get you access to the tracks today sometime. im a little hesitant to do lyrics because im not a vocalist so i feel like i come up with weird vocal patterns that dont make sense with the music
    November 16 02:43 PM
  • Gameofmetal I can send you the instrumentals so you can hear them, you have a dropbox account? I can just link you to the folder where the wav files are.
    November 16 01:56 PM
  • Gameofmetal I don't but i suppose if you don't want to then I can try to do them.
    November 16 01:56 PM
  • Gameofmetal so yea idk do you wanna **** wit it?
    November 14 10:43 AM
  • Gameofmetal well the reason i was asking is because i have a deathcore ep that's been written and recorded for like a year now and the guy i got for vocals hasn't done his part, so im looking for someone to do the job
    November 3 07:49 PM
  • Gameofmetal hey were you the vocalist or the instrumentalist with the icarus complex? for some reason im totally blanking right now but i wanna say you were vox
    October 28 11:00 PM
  • Gameofmetal sounds pretty tight, the clean vocal bit was used pretty well too
    July 31 12:50 PM
  • blatho blatho.
    February 25 05:04 AM
  • Pennywise_M I shall rate it after enough listens and feeling more at home with the EP. I only promise you honesty though. c:
    January 19 06:24 PM
  • Pennywise_M Oh wow, the dude is 17? Thought he'd be older! The guy has talent! About the hiss well, the whole thing overall was very listenable in terms of prod. I'll give it a couple more listens meanwhile.
    January 19 09:46 AM
  • Pennywise_M I mainly like your lower pitched work, it's pretty solid. Like how it blends with the music, the production is also pretty good on the vocals and overall. Where did u guys record it? Btw, as i'm a sucker for gothenburg style riffs, the last track of the EP is pretty dope overall. Also, how old are you?
    January 18 11:00 PM
  • Pennywise_M Took me long enough! I finally checked your vox and TIC EP. Wish u guys had it on bandcamp or smth, that would be cool. I hear a lot of potential there dude i gotta say. About your vox, i honestly liked them. You're very versatile and i love to hear that in vocalists. You seem to know how to use your cleans better than me too, haha. The only part i liked them a bit less on a first audition was on the latter phase of Final Peroxyms but that's just the first time i listen to it, might sink in!
    January 18 10:56 PM
  • Pennywise_M I'll check em soon, i promise mate!
    January 9 11:33 AM
  • Toondude10 easily the most boring metal album I've heard this year
    December 16 05:36 AM
  • Toondude10 yeah, it was boring a f*ck. More or less a complete waste of time if you ask me. The songs just dragged on and on and on and I'm thinking this would've been really good if they cut like almost twenty minutes.
    December 16 05:32 AM
  • chemicalmarriage They definitely riff hard. Saw em when chris was in dudes had chops
    December 2 04:53 AM
  • chemicalmarriage Just wondering if you were on the scene, not many people mention WoT anymore
    December 2 04:28 AM
  • chemicalmarriage Yer not from Chillicothe Ohio are you?
    December 1 05:38 PM
  • Gameofmetal ill try to get to that review this week. im just trying to collect some thoughts on the thing enough to write, sorry for the delay
    November 23 06:45 PM
  • Gameofmetal Abigail williams and coffincraft both have new albums that are very solid (black metal and death metal respectively) and I've been discoging A Forest of Stars (victorian/steampunk themed atmo black metal)
    November 11 05:35 PM
  • Gameofmetal yeah i want to do it but ive been very busy and not too motivated to write. ill try to get to it around that time tho
    November 11 04:46 PM
  • FrozenVain Just listened to your EP. Sorry that it took so long. It is very nice. There are things I like more and things I like less, but that's very subjective. Overall I think it's a really good EP. There is a lot of potential here. Don't get discouraged by my perhaps low rating though. I always rate EP's lower since they are basically just half albums. I'm really looking forward to more material.
    November 8 12:06 PM
  • Jacquibim This is reminding me a lot of Valtari's record from last year. It's not really my thing, but I like your vocals. I understand you've asked Gameofmetal for a review as well, it's probably best to wait for a review from him if you'd like some more positive exposure.
    November 1 05:21 AM
  • Jacquibim I'll have a look, do you think it's something I'd like?
    November 1 05:11 AM
  • FrozenVain Thanks, man! I'm glad you dig. We are working on a full-lenght as we speak. I personally think it's a huge step forward in quality.
    October 27 10:16 AM
  • Toondude10 Besides if I don't it looks like Game's got you covered ;-)
    October 26 08:46 PM
  • Toondude10 lol, sorry about that. Had a pretty busy week so I'll try and get it out sometime this week if I have time.
    October 26 07:25 PM
  • FrozenVain Yeh, dude. Of course I will listen to it!
    October 25 07:16 AM
  • Gameofmetal the first time they come in I don't recall disliking too much but the later parts i couldn't decide if they were a bit off key or just mixed in badly or what. yeah ill review it soonish. Ive got a kinda busy weekend with school work and there was another album i wanted to review soon.
    October 23 02:47 PM
  • Gameofmetal yea i thought it was really solid all around, the biggest thing that bothered me were the cleans. just didn't really feel like they fit most of the time.
    October 23 02:33 PM
  • Gameofmetal ooooo I could do that. I'll have to listen to it first (I have it bookmarked I swear) but yeah I'll try to oblige you that.
    October 22 03:28 PM
  • Crysis nice work dude, enjoyed your higher pitched screams
    October 19 09:29 PM
  • Toondude10 Well in that case, expect the review to be out at least on Friday (if not sometime during the weekend) if I do end up getting the time, which I might. But don't just tell me about it. Get some more exposure, tell a few more people about it.
    October 18 05:46 PM
  • Toondude10 thnx but couldn't you have just...idk given me the stream link if it's up already?
    October 18 05:32 PM
  • Toondude10 I could do that, review might not be up until next Friday though.
    October 12 06:08 PM
  • Toondude10 Probably, depends on if I have time by the time when it drops.
    October 12 10:13 AM
  • Toondude10 he makes guest appearances every now and then
    September 30 07:48 AM
  • Toondude10 check out the band Disarmonia Mundi, it's got Bjorn Strid and Christian Alvestam in it.
    September 28 07:59 PM
  • FrozenVain It has been way faster for me than my other band but I've been writing music for that album for about a year.
    September 27 10:06 AM
  • FrozenVain Yeh, he is good songwriter. I'm actually working on my very own folk black metal project. Gonna record my first full-lengt this wednesday.
    September 26 03:32 PM
  • FrozenVain That's awesome! Great vocals man! Very, very solid overall. You must keep med. The transition at 1:00 is kinda sudden though if I want to be constructive but it's a really good clean part. Nice melodic guitar solo as well. I'm actualy a vocalist in a bands as well :D. My favorite tracks are 5-6 from our EP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kQo6TW6VqA Check if you get the time.
    September 25 07:13 PM
  • Gameofmetal hmm alright well im curious at least, will jam right now
    August 9 02:55 PM
  • Gameofmetal damn a 4.5? I kinda assumed it was something core since it came from noc but im infinitely more excited to listen now seeing the death and black metal tags
    August 9 02:31 PM
  • FrozenVain Sounds absolutely awful. Jk, I actually listened to one song already beacuse I saw your review for it. It sounded cool so I will check.
    August 4 03:29 PM
  • Arcade why is Jeffrey Dhamer your dp
    April 13 07:45 PM
  • FrozenVain I will definitely listen to it. I might review it depending on how "reviewable" I find it to be. Cheers.
    March 14 06:55 AM
  • Kusangii Sweet, hope you'll dig it
    March 1 08:37 AM
  • Kusangii Oh, and while we're at it, The Armageddon Theories by Theory in Practice is an insane album that should appeal to any tech-death fan too. :]
    February 27 04:19 AM
  • Kusangii Artifacts by The End of All Reason. Kind of similar to First Fragment, Inanimate Existence, Inferi etc.
    February 27 04:17 AM
  • Kusangii Yo, I've been seeing that you dig a lot of tech-death, and was just wondering if you're in the mood for checking out an awesome underrated band in the genre?
    February 26 07:10 AM
  • Viraemia Hey, your Scar Symmetry review is great! I thought you might be interested to review the new Crimson Shadows album? http://youtu.be/snI-FiyM7Dg

  • OmairSh Dude nice rating for Leprous' TPS, Bilateral is even better. Takes quite a few listens to really appreciate, trust me when I say that
    September 23 11:58 PM
  • NocteDominum I think those are fair scores, I'm trying to keep my opinions balanced, objective and all that. I can get you an email to send interview questions if you like, best I can do if you're interested
    September 16 07:44 AM
  • NocteDominum Digital watermarked promos dude. The PR guy I work with leads the Aust branch of NucBlast. I have interviews coming up with Nilsson.
    September 15 06:14 PM
  • Kusangii Those are some damn legendary 5 ratings hahah. Please never remove those 5's and never rate anything else a 5, for me?
    September 6 10:22 AM
  • FrozenVain Holy ****, dude. Scar Symmetry just posted your urban dictionary post about them on facebook. Fun.
    August 24 05:11 PM
  • FrozenVain Right? It got me really excited.

    June 7 06:05 PM
  • Stokes I've honestly not given it that many listens yet, but from the 3-4 playthroughs I have it sounds like City but with less balls. Chances are it'll end up having a higher rating, though.
    May 4 05:15 PM
  • VeilOfOsiris http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kVFV4zgFvQ best song of the year.
