    Your singer sounds like the singer of iron maiden!

    The second song reminded me a lot of Fates Warning. Pretty cool.

    I would have brought the bass up a little in the mix or added a some grit to make it stand out a little more, but that's just personal taste. It doesn't sound bad.

    Withering: Has the most badass intro. Nice and simple, with catchy chord progression. The keys pull me in. The singing fits the style very nicely. Almost sounds like a power ballad. Vocals sound like James LaBrie if his voice was a lot lower.

    Guitar solo reminds me of the solo from Repentance on Systematic Chaos. That's a complement in the slightest. Chords under the solo are very nice. Love the arpeggios at the end of the solo!

    Love the transition into the synth solo/lead.

    Mentally Absent Pt. 2: This is just great riffage. Vocals are a bit more edge driven, and yeah, he does sound like Bruce Dickinson a lot. Love the bass breakdown! Didn't listen to the whole thing, but great song!

    Great band. Check out mine if you'd like. We're instrumental progressive metal.

    The Beginning: heavy
    Momentum: symphonic metal sounding
    Inertia: really progish
    Gravity: classical symphonic metalish, with latin section and blues.

    Thanks for the feedback =)

    There's a Mentally Absent Pt. 1 too (as you may have guessed :p ), but I haven't uploaded it to MySpace yet. Maybe I'll do, have recorded 5 songs =)

    I like your music, MistaMarko. It's different music, but in a very good way.

    I really like the instrumentals but I don't really care for your singer's voice.

    You guys sound pretty good. Can definitely hear who your influences are, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm just not personally fan of the vocal style. It all sounds well put together though. Keep it up. :)

    Personally I agree with some about the singer's voice. He's good, but against your sound, he needs to expand his vocal volume and work on that tone in his voice. It just sounds too soft and pulled back. Tell him to make love with that mic man... Other than that, The music is the most freshest stuff I've heard so far. Seriously.
