Hey, check out a new song, it's called Run Do It Now (tentatively) and i've pretty much recorded it in 2 days so it's a rough vision of the song. It has some toolishness to it with some opeth influenced climactic parts. please let me know what you think and ill c4c.

it's in my profile, 4th down I think. thanks!

No offense, but you sound girly (unless you have a girl singer).

Anyway, the ambient guitars are really cool and the vocal reverb is so wet and cool. Plus there's a line about kicking someone in the face.

The harmonies at the end are so cool.

One thing is that the drums could be brought up, as I wasn't really feeling the music too much because of a lack of pounding. Obviously it's a demo, so recorded it would have big bad drums and more attitude.

Yeah, the ideas are cool, just needs to be executed better in the finished product (except the vocals, they're perfectly imperfect. It gives it an emotional edge).

EDIT:
Feel like taking a listen to my band's stuff?

Hey frank694- I programmed the drum parts in garageband using the software instruments function. my general recording process right now is, after writing the song itself, music and lyrics and vocal arrangements, i set up a drum track and determine exactly what tempo the song should be, then record the first guitar part to the metronome. then I put together a backing drum part, and re-record guitars to that and then whenever i have the ability to record live drums, i just drop out the software drums and i can record to an instrumental track that's in perfect time and that seems to work pretty well so far for me. I think fleaflicker is right, they should be louder and more intense! and besides even if i wanted to record those double-bass parts live myself, i'd never be able to - my skills are pretty rudimentary

Really what fleaflicker said.
I really liked it. I didn't dig the vocals, just because i'm not a fan of that kind of stuff. I dig real deep singing in music. This probably is why I don't like punk-pop, among other reasons, but alot of them have sissy voices.
9/10 overall.
