    your guitarist is a bit off-tempo. Other than that, sounds okay to me!

    When you say studio, do you mean you paid someone to record and mix this?

    Bass sounds great, btw
     


  6. Hi! I have not heard any but it is clear to me that you are young and this is a new band.
    Recording should not be on the agenda until you are well experienced at live work and start to know what you are doing.
    Anything that you do get down on tape or computer disc should be used to guide you in the right direction as a training guide.
    You have a whole bunch of stuff to learn that will take years.

    Not bad but I think the mixing/mastering could really use some work. All the songs sound really thin without much space between the instruments.

    Keep working at it!

    I listened to your songs, and my opinion is with Arthur. Nice songs, but your timing is way off, and pitches are shakey... You need more work (and that´s the fun part of it, really). you´re making progress, and that´s all that matters.

    Regarding recording... It´s a good idea to record your band playing a lot to see where you´re at. Rehearsal room recordings should do for awhile... When you notice your band has gotten significantly better, it may be time for another trip to the studio.

    Soundwise your demo is ok. The sounds might be average quality, but one needs to realise that sound and playing go hand-in-hand...

    Thx for the feeback everyone!

    Yeah we will be recording again in the future after we've got well into gigging, there is deffinitly ruff spots, but like you say, part of the fun is trying to get better, realising our week spots and improving as we go, thats if we last long enough anyway lol.
