thanks man haha the recording videos are pretty old, and that was back when i was singing, so ye be warned (my vocals = badd). But we're just screwing around in the videos and recording and whatnot
#6
Vocals are a very person thing. I wouldn't worry about your vocals they sound fine to me, infact I prefer them to most of the over produced sickly sweet perfect pictch vocals we get in music now days. They have a loverly raw grungey sound

#13

#14
hey guys! i know i just posted something about a new layout, but we just edited it and now we're on the "new myspace layout". go check it out!
#16
thanks I appreciate the positive comments
and I see your band added my band, and I will listen to your guys' stuff as soon as I get the chance!
#19
we've got a new acoustic demo with our new vocalist that we might post to myspace and purevolume soon! and we're also taking promo photos tomorrow morning, exciting stuff. I'll keep you guys updated.
#21
new acoustic track "Featherweight Lies" (with our NEW VOCALIST!) up on myspace, facebook, and purevolume!
check one of the links in my sig; you won't regret it!
#22
"featherweight lies" wasn't too bad, shows your singer should be good with your music. I really like the riffs of "Cookies and Cream". Really good energy and vibe, got me rocking out! I love it when bands get a simple crunchy riff backed well by the drums and rhythm.

I'll add my band as friend, if you wouldn't mind checking us out. Or you can just go straight here:https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1317225

thanks for the feedback man, I'll check out your band as soon as I get on a computer with working sound!

(and we're putting vocals on Cookies n' Cream soon!)

JDizzle787, i gave your band a listen, liked what i heard, and commented on your guys' UG thread

p_a_morgan, went to your band's site and enjoyed it (great recording quality btw), not usually what i listen to, but i enjoyed it. Our bassist's dad lives in Jacksonville, so maybe we'll shimmy on over to your show @ the Freebird

Windwaker, I had checked out your band before, but i think i forgot to comment :P but i reallly really like your band! i commented on your UG thread, and I'll be hoping for updates!
#27
hey everyone, we have our ReverbNation site up and running! go check it out if you'd like!
http://reverbnation.com/sleepsoil

we also have new promo pics up on myspace, and fb

also, sometime in the next few weeks "Featherweight Lies" (the real, non-acoustic version) will be completed and uploaded so you may all revel in it's glory. :P

Good day chaps, Matt here from Renbot. Cheers for keeping me updated, I'm gonna have a listen to the new stuff now and let you know what I think.

First of all, good job on the MySpace, looks nice and swish!

Listening to the track now. I like how the acoustic elements are still there in the track, and it's not gone straight from an acoustic to a hard rock track. It can be quite hard to judge a song when the recording quality isn't fantastic, but I can tell there's quite a lot of potential. There are interesting dynamics, which are sadly lost in the production, but they are there none the less. The more I hear the pre-chorus the more I like it. Builds nicely and blossoms. I like the breakdown too, I can definilty hear the effect you were trying to achieve.

I think the only thing that's holding these tracks back is recording quality; which is obviously always an issue if you can't afford to get into a studio. Having said that, the song sounds promising, so the songwriting is there. Keep it up, let me know when you've got more stuff up.

- Matt

WE'RE HEADLINING! and Radon Moon from Edgewater, FL is also playing with us!

so, Saturday night we had a show canceled on us. Every other band (except one of them) canceled the day before and we found out the morning of. Also, the one band that didn't cancel kind of thought it was our fault until we explained it to them. The guy at the venue wouldn't let us and the other band play, otherwise we would have, just us 2.

anyways, its getting re-scheduled for sometime in february and we've also got like 3 other shows coming up in february! Its exciting that the shows are finally rollin' in!
#38
Love it! Have check out your myspace pages + vids... love the raw feel to your band, and the female addition... something different!

I'd rate it 5 stars, but I don't know how! Tell me please!


And please can you check out my online band?
