    Dude... You are my hero.

    1) for playing so damn fast - pretty impressive.

    2) for sticking with a "singer" like that!

          Yea that's pretty hardcore muzak, EC.

          Question: When you're playing staight 16th note rolls on double bass @ the intro of character flaw & also at the 2'40" second mark, are you playing single strokes or double strokes on double bass?

          Either way, good job .

          Thanx. Alex & me V's! http://photos.yahoo.com/flexapr

            Incredible drumsounds! Really Nice
            By the way....how many recordings took place for the singer/screamer before he ripped his vocalcords?

                Interesting stuff... From what I could hear, you are playing really well. Cool guitar tone. Unfortunately, I couldn't really hear any drum tones, 'cause I couldn't hear much of the drums. Mostly kick and cymbals. Lots of cymbals. Didn't hear much snare. For your style, you might think of dialing up a "snappier" snare sound, or just making it louder. It'll make what you're doing sound more articulate, and drive the music more.

                Remember a rule of thumb: Your snare should be the loudest part of your kit. Read the Modern Drummer Studio Survival Guide for some great tips.

                Your vocalist has major throat stamina! Reminds me of the guy in Slipknot...


                Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

                  I also like the cymbals... (the crashes not so) Are they real?
                  The snare sounds cheap though. The toms aren't really used often, but sound ok. Lots of 'sustain' on the crashes, it sounds like one constant stream of sound.

                    Incredible hardcore!

                    I just had to give you guys some space on my FTP site (just in case your present server is down). I took the liberty to add your band to my International Directory on the following site;

                    ftp://vdrum:[email protected]/

                    If you don't mind that is...

                    Upload some more to the site if you like, I still have about a gig left over!

                      WOW. thanks for the feedback guys. i TOTALLY forgot i posted on this board.

                      just to let you know. we have both FULL songs up on our site now.

                      I used V's for both songs. Both have alot of double bass too.hehe

                      for you guys interested in my setup.

                      here it goes...
                      for this recording i used:

                      Vpro's with a Td8 brain.
                      4 peice setup. snare, bass, high, and low toms. I used the vdrum hats, and i used a vpad for a china. I used REAL cymbals though. 19" A Custom Projection Crash, 20" Paiste Sound Formula (RIP) Power Crash, 20" Paiste Sound Formula Full Ride. And i recorded this stuff when i was 17 years old.

                      My singer did all those songs in 1 take. He's just nuts like that. No offense to him, but he's probably one of the most studio-declined people i know. but when its turn to get in the booth. he gets the job done.

                      If anybody lives in the Tri-State area and are interested in the studio we recorded at here's the info as well.
