Really Good!

Wow, what tight music. Did not know what to expect, but then this stuff just goes into high gear. You guys are really good. I hear lots of influences, good ones at that. You are very advanced with your timing, which many people just don't do these days. Then all of the sudden the song switches up, and goes into a different type heavy sound. Cool. Very well put together, and mixed. The constant change of patterns is crazy good! Keep up the great tunes. Sincerely Edward Westbrook (Atomic Energy Society)

Nice instrumental tune!

Interesting intro, quite energetic! Love the sound in general, really well mixed! Love the sound of the guitar and toms/congas/bongos/jembes or whatever they are. Heavier guitar at around 2 minute mark is awesome! Keyboards could be a tiny little bit louder. I would love to hear the use of choirs , especially in what seems to be your chorus, though instrumental. Choirs and strings would uplift the mood and take the song in a different direction. Tight musicianship! Excellent job overall guys! Again, I find your mixing and mastering to be way above most songs posted on this site. I'd be interesting in listening to other songs from you, but with a good vocalist, you guys would be absolutely awesome!! Keep on rocking. There are strings and a bit of choirs towards the end, but they could do so much more for the song. Excellent drums on that track!

The Lord is with these guys

This the best rock instrumental produce song that I've heard on this site thus far. The performance so heavy and intricate. This is very inspiring to me. The Lord has truly blessed these guys with talent. I love tribal drum beats and percussions I give these guys and this song a 5 out of 5.There skills are awesome I highly recommended this track. Reminds me of TOOL with the atmosphere tribal percussions

Awesome ????

I Really Enjoyed it

This was well orchestrated, I was able to follow the track and it was surgically pieced together. I understand the format of recording and beat production but the idea has nothing to do with that technical aspect. Creating a piece or even a modern-day master piece is just as tedious as it is with a 100 piece ensumble due to the concept of the music itself over the actual labor/inception of the creation itself. I was engulfed and entertained all at once. I listened and boobed my head to this. Great work and if you don't know, music publishing for your work is very possible if you are consistent with your music production and creations. I will check you out more.

Por fin algo de mi estilo!!!

Buenas tardes desde Jerez de la Frontera! Estoy contento de escuchar vuestra música porque realmente es mi estilo, me encantan las melodías y los cambios de ritmo contrastados, y vuestra música lo tiene. Habéis integrado la percusión muy bien, se complementa con la batería, que es de lo que se trata. Muy bueno el cambio de la mitad con palm mutes, y el que le sigue con los teclados, le otorga dinamismo y reposo al tema, para luego romper con los timbales y con un nuevo y potente riff de guitarra... perfecto, muy ingenioso cada cambio, y muy buen cosidos, decreciendo en intensidad en el último tercio para terminar como se empezó... OLE!!!! Os deseo lo mejor compañeros!!! Un saludo desde Andalucía!!!

Baptism of Fire - Review

Thank you for asking me to review your music. A very aggressive start with quite the intensity and pace. Great pace and tempo. Great clean sound with the lead guitar. Great percussion with the drums and hand bongos. The accompaniments of a effects and a nice bridge. It builds very nicely with even more intensity even with the bass guitar very intense variety and a with a strong ending. Nicely done! All the best!

Hi

I Like The Energy in Your tune..if You take out the Intro it will help..This is a Good for Life Performance as a Opening Tune..to "move" the People..for Radio Play It must be shorter around 4 min..They almost never play more ..I think this will not be a problem to cut some parts ( just for a Radio Play )..I do not know haw Music Publishers will react.. but I know that They almost never take an Instrumental Music for Publication..I wish You good luck with submissions..You did a good job..

Hello

This is a nice piece for a life performance as a break between Songs to keep people moving and as a filler for an Album but I'm not so sure if Radio Stations will put It on Rotation for many reasons .one ..it is Too long.. Radio almost Never play song longer than 4 min..yes if It is a Mega Hit they will stretch to app 5 min..I do not think Music Publisher will take It under Consideration ( They almost NEVER take an Instrumental Music and if They Do .."It must be out from This World" and Yours is not.. but I like it..Good luck with submissions..

Outstanding !

I would like to preface this review with a note to the reader. I am listening to this piece in a tuned space on broadcast quality recording gear . It tends to be very revealing . Because of that,... and an "un-level playing field", I tend to be very careful about reviewing other artists work. However, with JLT RECORDS "Baptism of Fire", the afore mentioned was certainly an asset . I am compelled to begin this review from a technical standpoint ... because this song was VERY well recorded and mixed . I am a huge fan of instrumental Rock and JLT certainly delivers ! They deliver *nearly* everything a fan of the genera require with the added bonus of NOT sounding like anybody else. Ample dynamics and varied approaches, honed through great production values, keep it fresh and the listener engaged . I will certainly be listening to this and more of their work ... and probably at much louder levels than I did for this review ! ** Now I will explain what I meant by *nearly* . First, I could follow every instrument in the sound field easily with exception of the bass. It was almost "implied" for lack of a better term . Second, Some great soloing would have been spectacular in the mix. I hope you readers won't let these footnotes of mine steer you away from a great listen .

Hi

I have a mix reactions when listen Your Tune..some parts are good and some not ..I think the best Idea is to make short version of It ( for the album cut ) Life performance will be ok...I like When Instrumental Music "do the talk and painting a picture"..I'm sorry to say that I do not feel that way listen It..on the other hand I like that Musicians Working Hard to show Theirs skills...I do think if You will make app 3.5 min long and Compress a little it will be a Nice Piece..I wish You good luck with pitching..

Baptême du feu

Du rock comme j'aime, je suis caler plus hip hop mais là vous me surpassez bien jouer, un bon rythme, et des résonnante équilibré, personnellement vous devriez être plus connu, car avec vos divers sonorité avec un mélange electro et guitare sa marche. Continuez je vous encourage.

Right out of the Gates

Nice aggressive intro knew this was gonna be a very driving piece. Tight guitar playing.. drums could have been lower in the mix seems like they took over as lead instrument where as the guitars should be driving the song . I like the idea and effort. Really cool... singing could work on this as well.but it's a cool instrumental. Good luck

Baptism of Fire (Salt of the Chief Cornerstone Review

This track is nice. It has a mix of rock soul and hip hop/ Tom Sawyer, Thin Lizzy flavor to it. The selection of instrument and sounds were on excellent. The beat and transitions appeared to be flawless. Nothing negative to add or take away from the track. Great work!

Intricate Rhythm Patterns

The overdriven intro is smooth with an edge. The body of the song rides on an excellent rhythm track, and you can't resist jumping onboard. There are other rhythms intertwined throughout the music, so pick one, or two. The rhythms are tighter than a snare drum head, and even the guitar parts are part of these intricate rhythm patterns. If you don't like "Baptism of Fire", you don't know how to have fun.
