A Shot in the Dark (Alternative) Pittsburgh, PA

So i play lead guitar in a band called A Shot in the Dark. We've been playing together for about 6-7 months. We just recorded some songs a week or two ago and made a myspace a few days ago (which would be why it's completely bland). We play kind of alternative mixed with what i guess you could call metalcore, but i'm not 100% sure with the genres.

The songs were recorded with home recording equipment so the quality isn't great, but any and all feedback would be appreciated!

Thanks!!

the vocals aren't terrible, they just sound like he's trying too hard to be a good singer when he's not. You don't really need to be a great singer, you just need to sound confident when you sing. Tell your vocalist to just go for it on the cleaner parts. The growls are good.

Well it's been about 6 months since any updates and I happened to stumble on this thread so, NEW LIVE VIDS!

Our whole set from our most recent show is up this channel, some of the songs are new, some i've already posted on here.

Here is part 1, if you wanna hear more, the rest will be in the related videos/more from this channel thingy.


Feedback would be appreciated.
