    Hey All,
    There seems to be some question as to the over all Genera of our new LP. I was wondering if you guys/gals could help resolve our debate. I would also welcome y'all to critique our LP good or bad. The following is a link to our music:

    I would recommend starting with the following songs:

    Broccoli
    Generation Gap
    Life under a rock
    Zombie Whore
    Borderline


    Thanks!
     
  2. I'm confused, maybe because I'm in England, but what does overall genera mean?

    Is the word you're looking for "genre?"

    Genera was a clothing company popular in the mid 80s.

    Alternative Metal is about as broad as I'd put it. I could hear the following genres: Grunge, Punkrock, New Metal (in the vein of Scars of Life, not Limp Bizkit et al). Tiny residues of thrash and power metal. Quite an odd mix when I think about it.

    Overall I wasn't much a fan of the music but I gotta say you guys sound polished (a bit too polished for my liking but hey). You know what you're doing. I like your bass sound quite a lot, it blends well while still being recognizable in the mix. The mix is well done, by the way. I didn't have the feeling any instrument got the short end of the stick, you can hear everything, very hi-fi for a rock/metal record.

    Thanks Nashrakh. It is an odd mix.
