That's what me and my band is working on/planning to do.

We don't have a vocalist yet, and this song works well without vocals, and it's a very good song.

Our set can only be around 10 minutes though, and Orion is a long song, so we'd have to set up/break down really fast.

Do you guys think this song would be a good choice to play live at a High School Talent show?

hmmmmm, maybe not for a talent show, its far too long and not lot of people would recognise it/enjoy it. You could maybe start with say 60 seconds of it to open with then move onto something people will recognise?

It might seem boring to lots of high schoolers who arent really into musicianship and stuff. Just my opinion.

I know, I'm saying we can play it and get away with it without a vocalist. (in response to deadmen)

Orion is an awesome instrumental, but you'll have to realize that some people won't really appreciate it. Those people, since we're dealing with high schoolers here, will have a preference for hip-hop, rap, country and "pop" music. However, given all the change-ups in the song, from the opening build, to the first solo, to the bass-centric interlude, to the concluding solos, there is no way anyone should get bored while listening to you play.

I say go for it, and blow their frikkin' minds, bro.

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

Haha, yeah... the song is going pretty good, only problem is that our drummer just first heard the song like last week, so he doesn't know all the fills and whatnot, so we have to work with him really badly, but he has the beats, they just aren't no Lars Ulrich quality, but other than that, we should be ready to roll... auditions are on Friday. No doubt in my mind we'll make it.

I will have a video up after the show, I can assure you that much.

We just did the song today for the school, for over 700+ people, and man... that was the best damn feeling of my whole life.

We have a video too, crappy, but it's there.

This was a very first show, and we got this song down in practically a week. We didn't expect the audience to be going THAT crazy, people were headbanging and shit. When I started my solo I heard someone yell "Tear it up, Kirk!"

I'm the guy on left with the schecter and the ACDC shirt. I used some other bands amp because mine blew RIGHT ON THE DAY OF THE SHOW. :P

We're also 15, and new to the whole gigging thing. So tell us what you think
