  • Simply brilliant. What a band! I really dig this. And your solo is extremely tasteful and well conducted (as always I should potentially say) :thumbup:8)


    What I really like about your productions is the great sound, not overproduced but very transparent and full. Space for everything. Drums sound killer as well, bass too, vocals good to hear and your guitar in the right spot. Cool thing!

  • Fantastic ! I'm still prefer king killer an absolute hit but this one really rocks too :)


    BTW are the drums recorded on the edrum set ? I don't see no mike on the 'real' drumset ?

  • I love the groove change from the verse to the chorus, man.


    Great that the bass gets some exposure.


    Your solo rocks, as always, Niko. 8)

    Thanks! Yeah we have to use that bass effectively in a four-piece! Glad you liked the solo!

    Your best song so far. 8)

    I tend to think so too :)

    This! Yes, yes, yes, as Monkey_Man said. Great tune, powerful, somewhat complex, groovy... very cool. Congrats guys on your work. Really love the passion behind that!


    The Bass part in the middle is extremely nice and almost Tool-ish :thumbup:8)

    Glad you liked the interlude!

    BTW are the drums recorded on the edrum set ? I don't see no mike on the 'real' drumset ?

    Guilty as charged :) - the drums are Steven Slate played on the eDrum set. We allow ourselves to cheat a little bit on the playthrough in that regard ;)

    Brilliant, I really liked Egypt! I think the mix was also better, sounded very precise.

    Thanks man - My mixing skills are getting better although still very inconsistent. I had to send my Adam A7Xs in for repair, so this one is actually mostly mixed on my old hifi setup (F3 lyd speakers, and Denon PMA-900v from the 80's) in the later stages.


    I did have to take 9-10 trips to my car to check though. I don't know what it is about car stereos, but if it sounds balanced there, then it will work everywhere. Strongly considering getting a powerful laptop and sit in the car while doing the final balancing. For real.
