Not bad. I can't say I'm a fan of the newer style of metal (and by that I mean Killswitch Engage/Lamb of God types; I'm more of a death/Bay Area thrash kind of guy) and it sort of wouldn't be right for me to advise "play more solos", but perhaps I think a nice solo here and there puts a nice change of pace, based off that one track on your page. Decent stuff, keep going for it. ;-D

Did you just call me a girl? :-b

But yeah that's what does it for me, it's the screaming "Cookie Monster" voice that I don't care for. Other than that it sounds like you guys are pretty tight, keep at it man. ;-D

Sounds like Caninus :-b

Sorry, not my bag. And my apologies if the lead singer is not a pit bull and I gave insult.

I don't get into that kind of music at all, and hope this doesn't cause offense, but have you tried a different kind of "vocals" for that song other then that grunting nonsense?
I think it could also sound really excellent with no vocals, just as an instrumental ;-D

Ha, you don't know what you're missing. :-b

I'll agree with the vocals, albeit for a different reason. It's somewhat expected to have that gravelly cookie monster voice when you're talking about death metal (or I'd say what you guys play falls into more as deathcore), but I feel like if you're going to have a vocalist that only feels comfortable with plenty of deep grunting, he needs to make it stand out more. I felt like his voice was a bit too complementary to the track, which made the track less intense for my liking, although I reckon it's the kind of audio quality. Anyway, I don't really care much for vocals when it comes to death metal, but a vocalist that can yell out the lyrics with conviction (and some semblance of clarity) really adds to it. I don't think a Chuck Schuldiner type of vocalist will fit with your music (and quite frankly it's hard to get someone with the range of Chuck) but that would sound cool and I believe, refreshing, from other indie metal acts I hear these days, which always provokes the reaction from me as decent but nothing I haven't heard before.

Once again, keep at it and hope all the advice comes through for you. I guess what I'm asking is a bit more solos to showboat and stronger vocals and you guys will stand out. ;-D
