Good vibesVery nice enjoyed it ! Sounds almost like something from the 60's/70's it's nice to hear something unique compared to the same over played stuff that is going around these days keep up the good work!
Hate CrimesArrangement: Good concept of instrumentation; simple and basic, bass, drums, guitar, lead vocals. Vocals: Good and strong, clear and understandable. A little bit off in timing due to lyrical complications. Lyrics: The message is good. The lyrics used do get the point across are adequate, however, the mechanics of song writing lyrics to convey a message of hope, fear, love, etc. Have to follow certain criteria in order to be sung more easily, due to the construction of each word(s) syllables. It is easier to sing a phrase such as: Excelent Example: "I saw the news today, oh, no.......the english army has just won the war.." There is a rhythm and cadence to this phrase, that makes it easy to sing, and easy to understand by the listener. Bad Example: "I saw a large newspaper this morning, the headline says we have finally finished the damn war" This is horrible! Too many words used to say the same thing, and it doesn't work within the timing, rhythm, and cadence of the songs structure. In this song, the chorus is awkward and too wordy. Instead of "Can you hear hate crimes, running away through life, can you see hate crimes running away with my life" Try this: "Hate Crimes......running through life, Hate Crimes.....destroying your life". Just a thought. Mix: The mix is pretty good. Might need more bass guitar levels up a bit. keep up the good work, and practice, practice, practice.......... Peace, Donivan.
Catchy :)I like that it starts with the screams! Pretty hard to stop listening after you hear that! You have to keep playing the song to find out what it is about. When the vocals started, the first thing I noticed was that I had to work to make out what the lyrics are saying. I don't know if it's a delay effect or a stereo effect or whatever that you're using...but, although the effect is kind of cool, I would probably recommend using less of it or cutting it out entirely. This song in particular seems like one where the lyrics are crucial to understanding the track as a whole.
Cavalier ReviewCavalier Review We liked this song, its always nice to hear this type of song. How was this recorded was it a live take or studio. When we hear this song it reminds us of our tour of Asia. Taking in countries like Thailand, Cambodia,Laos and China
HiI like your music very much and I think its very catchy. thought my friends like me they will also like it and i just shared it on my Tumblr . How do i buy your album on iTunes i been searching but could not be found. or maybe you can upload more tunes here im eager to hear more. thanks Do u have a YouTube page with videos for ur new fan can check out. Im really into all types of music
Not flowingThe song was not unified. it was not flowing. The singing was off a little. It didn't make any sense. The EQ was OK. More needs to be done with the spacial of the instruments to match the voice. The song needs to have something done with the volume too. Be creative with it.
Needs workVery old school. Made me think of Led Zeppelin, but don’t tale that as a compliment les zeppelin was amazing. The vocal melody in this was very random and rushed. There were times where you tried to squeeze in lyrics just to finish the sentence. And the snare break to go into the chorus seemed off. I’m sorry to say it but this song sounds like it wasn’t that well put together. It sounds like it was just recorded on the spot. Not too much I can take away from it. I would say keep trying and practice and make something you can stand behind. Don’t give up son easy. I know this sounds like it trying to be a dick, but I’m not. I’m just saying give it another shot. This is an honest opinion, I’m not trying to be nice. Just realistic
Too long, too bland.Hmmm.. an intro 'postcard from Alabama' style, two verses that sound too similar.. will there be originality in this, one may ask. Well there is : sudden stops, a short chorus.. Unfortunately, that's all there is : the whole thing goes on and on, with the same arrangements, same chords, and -ouch- the same monotonic melody line. It really needs some uplifting moments, changes of instruments (you only hear a distorted guitar, mainly). And the track is way too long with this unattractive sound. Sorry lads, you really have to get out of your comfort zone and try silly, daring, outrageous things to make it really catchy.
Hate crimes is pure rock and rollWow !! A real rock and roll !! In all senses!! Letter, sound and attitude !! I really enjoyed the guitar pick and the breaks in the music !! Firm, steady bass and vocal that matches the sound of the band! Congratulations on the production !! Keep working to keep rock and roll alive !! I will recommend your music to all my contacts !! Thank you! Please check my songs!!
valeCreo haber comentado ya sobre esta banda. La anterior vez vi la canción un tanto monótona, esta vez igual, aunque han puesto un pequeño cambio, la base de la melodía siempre es la misma. Es una buena canción, pero podría ser mejor. También recuerdo hablar del batería en la anterior canción que comenté que usa demasiado los platos, en esta canción parece que se le ha quitado esta manía, pero se nota que lleva poco tiempo tocando, estoy seguro que con el tiempo mejorará. Seguir trabajando, lo estáis haciendo bien.
Sounds a little bluesy due to the guitar work...Nice work. Sounds a little bluesy due to the guitar work. By the way really nice guitar work, I like the chords used in the middle part of this song and the sound of the guitars is very good. The rest of the instruments fit well and full fill their task. The singing might be a little improved due to the slightly intonation differences mainly obvious, when at least two voice tracks been recorded, but it's a nice voice although. Keep it up!
It Aint Hate , But It's Not Love EitherDrums and guitar come out strong and sound good. Vocals start out middle of the road and get worse from there . lyrically is where i have the the biggest problem with this song, to much rhyming , not enough mystery or change . Brevity could also be used here . there is some good musical talent here, work on the singing , lyrics and arrangement .
HateCrimesWhat a magical riff flying out them speakers, it's like Neil Young from the 70's is jamming with the Chilli Peps ! Ding ! This is a great rock and roll number which has serious potential. A little tweak here and there and it is a work of art. The lyrics are amazing and real from the heart but the stars for me are the guitars, there's choppy bluesy riffs, sliding, bending melodies and a bass line that holds the whole lot perfectly. Great job guys ! Peter
nice songHey guys. It's Pieter here. My honest oppinion: The song is good. The lead-singer has a GREAT voice, and the guitar is magnificent. I like the lyrics, me, myself, I've been a victim of violence TOO. Though, ever tried admitting a bass-player in the band ? You know, a lot of bands try it WITHOUT a bass-player nowadays. But a bass is REALLY capable of making the band roll... you know. He can add those simple, peace-giving extra notes that make the audience smother. Secondly. Don't underestimate the value of a good composition; Question and answer. The song ends too apbruptly. If you want to create a sing-along, then you just HAVE TO write a song that is written according to the general rules of singer-songwriting. And you're capable. Believe me.
