Cool. You need to remix the levels so it doesn't drop down and out after the drum intro. Make the music match the intensity of the drum line.

These are all just demo versions too, as I'm experimenting with different amps on various songs to see how they translate in a mix.  Once I've decided on which is best, which right now seems to be either the Deizel Herbert, VH4, or the Bogner Uberschal on the crunch stuff, and a Fender Bassman for the cleans.  I may combine a Marshall JCM800 in with the crunch stuff just to add a little more chime to the highs, but not at the point that they're harsh.

Vocals will go on last, as I've been out of the game for about 8 years, and I only did Background vocals then.  I'm practicing with my Melissa Cross Vocal Instructional DVD and finding that I'll likely not be singing lead on some songs due to the fact that they are outside the center of my range. 

We're still a long ways off from an actual release because it's just me, a bass player, and lot's of loops.  We'll need to get a drummer, and someone whom can double on 2nd guitar whom can play a 7 string and they keys.  That person and I can alternate keys duties.  From there we'll try to find a vocalist.

Ideally, since this is a Native ministry, we're preferring to find people of Native decent, as we'll primarily be playing to Native youth on/off of reservations, schools, youth groups, etc...  No clubs/No Casino's.  This is definitely the road less travelled, and certainly not lucratively promising, but it's ministry, so we know what our priorities are, and what we're about.

Will keep updated.

Sounds promising! The outro is cool.
I like the harmonies about 1:30 and 3:30, good lines.

:party07:

The VH4 And the JCM will sound massive together. Try splitting your track to the Diezel and the Marshall, to get the same 'take' from diff amps. When it's layered it sounds thick!

good work Sir!

I feel for you man... I have so much trouble trying to find good vocalists to sing with my stuff, so I end up trying to sing most of it myself which hardly ever works very well cuz though I'm a fairly good singer I'm a bass vocalist and can't really do the rock type stuff, so the only things I can cover by myself are like Johnny Cash type stuff.... maybe....

Good luck finding vocals and good work with what you've got so far...

+1 on the "vibe" of the music you've got there... very unique... very cool...

Added the Herbert and the Big Bottom, re-Eq'd the overal mix, and corrected some anomalies with the bass performance, then added some content in the intro.

Still demo's, but a work in progress.

Dude. Loose that Cherokee nation drumbeat for every single song you have. I mean, i love the material, but you need some more progressive percussion .

Dude, those tribal beats are only in this song, and TLP, and they're different beats entirely.  That's 2 songs total out of nearly 10 on the myspace page.

Again, these are demo's, once I get a drummer, I'm pretty sure the overall tracks will come alive even more.

I really like it!! incl the beat! :)

Thanks.  It kind of helps define the genre', "Red Metal" or "Alter-Native", which is intentional.  There really aren't any Native Metal artists other than Blackfire that I've been able to find, and even they are more straight up punk/pop rock.

Liking it. Yeah a real drummer will help a lot. Sweet tones, if a little chugga-chugga for me. Good luck finding a singer.
