    Those are different. What do you call that? :D

    One thing I am noticing listening to the first song, the slap section in the chorus harmony is really, really annoying; like it doesn't flow with the song. It seems like you slapped just because you could instead because it fit the song.

    Second Song- All I can say is no more coffee for the guitar player. :D

    Third Song - Liked this one alot until the weird chorus or whatever :D

    One thing I have noticed in all the clips is you have a very good tone, tons of bottom with no boom. Also the sound on the clips is very good, did you do this in a home studio. Good playing, not music that I would listen to regularly but seems very original.

    Punk/Funk/Metal/Thrash/whatever.
