Hey guys!

After some time of abscence, it's time to post something again here =].
This weekend my dad and I made a sweet little videoclip for a new song (demo) of our new band: KiXi.

It's pretty heavy but really groovy rock.
Guitar & Vocals by me, Bas by Jan Somers & Drums by John Emmen.

heya there finally landed on an internet connection and had time to settle down :P

took a listen to your mix, gotta say I'm digging the groove on this one - quality is top notch (specially the vid there, I feel like I'm watching a music vid from the 80's)

I think the only thing that sorta took a step back with me was the solo bit that would step in, it just felt like it disrupted the flow too much for me - course I'm a bit biased, I like hearing tracks that simply flow on and on , something that can run in the back of my head easily.

but overall I like it - you can hear the vocalist's energy and the mix melds nicely with those riffs - not to mention i luv the way the drums were miced theres not much to criticize overall - sry for the late hit back, and thx for the crit

Thans a lot for your feedback man!
It's nice to hear you like the drum micing btw, since it was done just with 2 simple vocal mic's trough a small PA at our rehearsing place. It sounded like shit first, but you can do a LOT with mixing I have learnt.
Thanks again for the crit, and no prob, good luck on your song, since it's becoming awesome!

Very catchy! I must agree with Night about the solo, it takes away from the groove a little but, It sounds like there should be a solo there, but just maybe rework it.
I can't sit here and critique much, one, there isn't much to critique, and two because you probably are a much more experienced musician than I am. haha

Great vocals, great guitar, great drums, great song.

Thanks a lot for your feedback man!
Yeah the solo is just for the demo version, for the real recording I'll re-record it probably
