I'm the lead singer/rhythm guitarist for a band called "Life Through Death." We've uploaded our first recording on myspace (it's the only song on there) and on here as well. It's called "The Blood is the Life".

The lyrics are based on the novel "Dracula". I actually wrote the song about three years ago, but now that I have a band, I can play it! I don't know what to compare it to, maybe Children of Bodom or Iron Maiden. Obviously not as legendary as them of course! But I'm proud of it. Hope you enjoy it

Thanks mate! That flute sounding instrument is actually an Irish whistle – well it’s a mixture of a real Irish whistle and keyboard with an Irish whistle effect haha. We used a keyboard for the chromatic notes because the Irish whistle is diatonic.
Pretty cool song here. Intro riff is nice, but I'm not crazy about the stops in between. The whistle is a really cool addition, sounded like Final Fantasy lol, but it was cool. Vocals were actually pretty good, don't usually here good vocals here. Solo was sweet, guitar riffs are cool, everything's pretty tight. Nice job.
