    OK:
    Nice "TOOL" sounding band. Keep up the good work. Intro to "Devil and Queens" needed tightening up, but a live permormance is what it is. I like the serene part after the intro. Your singer is good, but needs to "fatten" up his voice a bit-I'm not a sound expert but I hope you know what I mean.

    You (and your bass) sound fine. Not much more I can comment on. Best of luck, all in all a very good band, I can tell you guys work very hard. The next step is to create an original sound for yourselves.

    I'm digging your tone. Fills the sonic space nicely.

    Sounds pretty brutal. Did you guys DIY or hit the studio?

    the tool sounding stuff is off our older cd put out about 6 years ago the newer song is sheeps and wolves. we've tryed dropping the toolish feel and started going heavier with the addition of a 2nd guitar player.

    mostly done the DIY way with help from other local musicians

    i run everything through my eq which is pretty straight forward a lot of lows and highs with the mids kinda cut, sourceaudio multiwave distortion and bass envelope, ibanez tube screamer, and a red witch tremelo going into svt 5-pro thru a pr810

    Awesome bass tone you got there. do you use any kind of effects or a certain preamp to get that sound? also your band sounds awesome. I got a pretty cool bass sound myself. I use multi-effects processors to get my sound. here's a song from my band. I use a zoom b2.1u on this song.

    My band is also available on facebook and reverb nation. here are the links. feel free to check them out.

    I can't really hear the notes you're playing, even though you're quite present in the mix. It's odd. Then again, it's not really my kind of metal, though you guys play very well.

    If you're talking about me, I sometimes have a habit of shying away the bass track on the band mix. even though I do try my best on making the bass tracks more noticeable, it's not really buried from the mix. plus I do add more lows on the bass tracks just to give it a more warmer sound. I will do my best on making bass tracks more noticeable on the next songs I will be recording. thanks for the compliment on our playing.

    yeah i have to agree it is hard to hear your notes. you're using a 5er i take it, that could have some effect on it, thats another reason why i like using 4 just tuned down to give me the clicky clacky tone.

    do you or have you used the bass pod? i used to use a bass pod xt just recently switched back to stompboxes, in regard to preamps and what not, no i simply use my ampeg svt 5 pro and pr810, and i run an eq. i also use a source audio multiwave bass distortion and an ibanez ts808

    Yes I use a 5-string bass. the strings were actually dead when I've recorded the song. I did change the strings on it not too long ago. also on the song, I've used a zoom b2.1u. I did had a line 6 bass pod long time ago, but not anymore. I've had the original line 6 bass pod and the line 6 bass floor pod. right now I currently own a deltalab dbfx1(great sounding multi-effects processor by the way) and I'm planning on buying a zoom b3 real soon. if anything, I'll re-eq the bass track of that song and try to make the bass track more noticeable.

    So you use a source audio multiwave bass distortion pedal and an Ibanez ts808 to get your sound....interesting. I would of thought you would of use like a tech 21 pedal with some kind of distortion pedal. I use to have a hartke bass attack pedal and I've used it with my digitech bass driver. this combination gives me a smooth warm distorted sound. I once used it for recording with my brother's band. other than that, that was my live set-up. right now I own a digitech bass driver and a danelectro cool cat cc-1 chorus pedal for my live set-up. I also own a deltalab dbfx1 which I normally use for recording and sometimes I use it live.

    Oh so you were talking about something else...okay. well, I've remastered the song anyway. hopefully it sounds better now. the song I've posted is from an up-coming album with my band. the album is almost complete. in case you're wondering, I'm lead singer and bass player of my band.
