The guitars and instrumentation are excellent and produced quite well, actually. In fact, they sound top notch. My gripe is that your vocal line could use some work. Something more adventurous than just following the chords during the verse, perhaps? It tends to drone rather noticeably this way, and especially when we come back to it from that sweet chorus.

Other than that, keep up the good work!

That's some pretty sweet sounding stuff you've got there. I'm a sucker for the whole shoegaze-metal thing, though, of course, so I may be biased.

In general I like them, my criticism from before still stands though... I think they could all benefit from a stronger melody/vocal line. For most of it your vocals are sort of buried in the mix, and maybe that's part of it.

I love what you were able to do sound manipulation wise on "I'll Write." Rendered in the context of a slow-burning head-bobber type thing that you have going there, it brought to mind Radiohead crashing into Mansun at times.

I was wondering, what kind of equipment did you use for recording and whatnot? Are these studio recorded demos, or did you set up your own studio?

Hey man thanks for having a look. I hear you on the vocals but thats how ive put them ive not just mixed them bad hehe. I wanted them to act as just another instrument and not a main part of the song to try bring everything together more, i dunno? My bloody valentine did it and sounded cool so thats where i got my heads up from.

As far as recording goes. Most of it was done pretty quickly and in the comfort of my own bedroom. The drums are all real samples ive collected from various sites on the net and put into Cubase. I dont think ive used any samples in those songs on there so everything is played through my set up on my pedel board. The snyths, reverse guitar and delay noises are all done through my pedals.

Never really thought of any of the songs sounding Mansuny but they are one of my fav bands so many it krept in there somewhere along the line Smile
