    Hi all!

    My band recorded this song in May, recorded vocals in November and we finally got it mastered today.

    Could you be so kind to check out the songs, feel free to comment on it :)

    Please bear in mind that the lyrics are in Icelandic. The song is about an old man who´s dumped at the old folks home by his kids, even though they had promised they´d never do it to him. He´s a bit frustrated about that as the singer is trying to convey with his singing style in this song :)

    Here is the song, it´s called Takk Fyrir

  2. Cool song! Even sounds good with the icelandic lyrics that I can't understand.
     
  3. wow...that was great! Has a creepy vibe to it. First thing I thought of was that it would make a great song to have playing in your head during a nightmare. Seriously though, that sounded great, awesome bass, really driving!

    Hehe :) Thanks Tyler!

    Thanks evilbob!

    I´m quite fond of the bassline myself ;)
     
  5. Nice...I would buy this.

    The singer has an EXCELLENT voice.

    Cool Bass Lines!

    The only thing that was a little iffy was the guitarists distortion sound. Just a little on the scratchy high pitch side. Do not take that as an insult though...Very kick ass.
     
  6. singer has the same vibe going as the guy from muse.

    yeah keep it up
     
  7. It's a catchy tune... I like it!!!

    Thank you all!

    I am very happy that you took your time to listen to our song :)

    Next matter on hand is to get some airplay... :eek:
     
  9. Only thing I didn't like is it seemed the drummer got a little TOO cymbol happy towards the end.

    Thanks all!

    And this is an update by the way.

    Tonight we went back to the studio were we mastered the song and we re-recorded couple of guitar tracks. After that, we completely re-mixed the song from ground up and it sound a whole lot better now!

    I updated the link at the top of the page, but here it is anyways:
    Takk Fyrir (4.3mb)
     
  16. That is a lot better! Sounds sooo much cleaner. Keep up the good work!
     
  17. Didn't think it ws possible but I enjoy it even more now :)
