    Talking My first song here - tell me what you think...

    Last weekend's outcome...

    ESCAPE by Stromschlag

    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/...d=2589&alid=-1

    Please comment on anything...
    Overall sound...
    Guitar sound [not playing!!! ;-)]
    Vocal sound.... etc

    Well, I just recorded one verse of the vocals and then cut and pasted it - that will be replaced by 'real' lyrics - after I have written them... so don't try to figure out the words - they may not make any sense - and by the way - English is not my mother tongue...

    Tell me what you think of it...

    I like the overall sound, the music, the style. almost everything.

    To me the vocal melody hits several clashing tones with the music. I didn't think the melody fit the song?

    That may be the sound you're after, then good job.

    Killer song! I love that synth bass in there. I wasn't paying attention to the lyrics, but that was a great vocal sound you've got. This is gonna be good!

    nice

    kinda' billy idol meets trent reznor. (at least the version with the vocals remind of me of billy idol... the instrumental doesnt quite as much)

    great sound. was this largley done on a digitial workstation?
    those drums sound to good to be mic'd? am I wrong?

    after a second listen i am quite sure they are sequenced. really good stuff.

    nice crunchy guitars too.. acoutics are right in the pocket.
    everything is so in time. very tight.

    kick ass.

    Red face

    Oh well, thanks to you all...

    Yes, everything was done on a computer - except the vocals and the flanger guitar...

    I hope to come up with a 'more interesting' refrain - with a better vocal hookline, well we'll see...

    Any more comments???

    Red face sounds good but..

    I agree with Smokepole about the vocals fitting the tune, though, the vocals are technically great; 2nd thing is - the cymbals wich are way too loud.
    great work man - finish that!

    I totally like the tune, arrangment, and instruments, and vocals. I would prefer the snare and cymbals a little softer kick a little louder. The vocals a little louder with some more presence on them. Your english sounds really good...

    Vocals sound pretty good and the mix is smooth in general.

    I would cut back on the amount of synthetic instruments in the mix. Or maybe cut the volume on em a bit. When the music cuts down to more guitar, it sounds soooo good.

    Really cool song, especially on the 2nd listen. I love the vox man, and the delay effect on it is bitchin'.

    I'd just cut down on some of that spacy sounding stuff, but that's just a matter of personal preference. Really quality.
