I cant find much good to say about it, but thats because its a style i really dont like (and im a grumpy cunt) the wishy washy bit - the heavy bit isnt too bad

i feel that the singer could try a bit more, maybe have a glass of water!

The song isnt that bad, the production lets it down alot. New singer, ditch the 12/8 folk crap and it would be ok

most important question.... wheres the ripping solo?!?!?!?! :wink:

In my honest opinion, the singer just isn't cutting it and to me it seems like the different styles of their playing are clashing each other as if they're not in sync very well, if you know what I mean. Although I liked the drums :O just thought there was too much cymbal work in the beginning.

first and foremost:
I'm not feeling those "Glen Danzig vocals" at all (putting it nicely)...

Songwriting needs lots of work, there were moments where I started to dig the "Harnessing Demons" song (very old school Sabbath sounding IMO) but then the vocalist (notice I didn't call him a singer, that's purposely done) came in and killed it...

Production wise, doesn't sound like much went into it, just sounds like a very rough demo...

none of this is meant to be malicious, even if it seems like I unloaded on the "vocalist"

just my 2 cents... :wink:

interesting guys.
two of us listened and expressed opinions, i wanted to see what others thought...
btw the drummer is also the singer, they need a drummer to gig.

Yup pretty much what everyone so far has said I find to be true.

There is far too much cymbal work, which is a shame because behind that the drumming is solid.

Guitar wise there's some nice simple almost Crooked Vulture style riffs there. It's okay, the heavier stuff is much better.

The singer is just horrible. Lets the whole thing down. He sounds like he trying (trying being the operative word) to sing through a layer of built up phlem. If I were them I'd be looking for a singer and not a drummer.
