Solid as RockThis recording makes me happy and I am glad to have found it. First of the production is good, the muscians are great (from guitars, bass and drumms to vocals) and finally and maybe most important it's a good solid rock track with a solid and steady beat. I bet when this group play live the crowd can't stand still. I know I wouldn't be able too at laest :) So to sum it up: Well done guys and keep them comming :)
O-NYX DOAO-NYX has sent you a request to review their 2nd track of their 1st Album - "Dead or Alive"... What you have here are excellent tracks & mix. Not much you can say bad about "O-NYX" except, the CD cover photo of a giant black head being popped with fire! I've listened to a lot of "O-NYX's" songs, all unusually interesting... Where ever "O-NYX" have originated, don't know if they are British or Frenchish, they claim the latter, France, it sounds like both country's have that American English accent going on when they sing. Check out "O-NYX" page and their other LP's/CD's "You Can't Get Away" & "If You Leave Me Now"...Rock On...
Review of the group O-NYX song Dead or AliveThe band O-NYX song dead or alive is pretty dynamic, and other worldly sounding. The music has a ominous other worldly sound and feel to it. The drums have kind of funky groove going on. The guitars are dynamic and also create an other worldly mood. The lead vocalist sounds interesting but its kind of hard to understand, what he's singing about. Especially during the chorus, when the guitars start playing. They tend to over power the vocal. Other than that. I kind of like the song. suggestion: in the mix during the chorus or whenever the vocals come in. Make sure they are not over powered by the guitars.
Dead or aliveIt sounds really good. Stylish rock. The drums are a mixed little too high in my opinion, but it is very marginal. The singer increases the feeling of the song. Good and rocky feeling. Good shape on the song and dynamic. The recording quality is also good.
PowerfulVery cool, very powerful voice and I like the way you use it. There is one part of the song where your voice oddly drops and that is the only part I might change, it’s something you did a few times. I like the way you go hard with the chorus in a very powerful voice. The instrumentals are great. You must be pretty popular already and if you are not you will be soon so keep up the good work because you have a listener in me. Thanks for allowing me to review Courtney couture
DeadDead or alive. This song like life and death, has lots of twisted dips and highlighted turns. Good drums, better vocalist. I like this song. Very creative. Thanks Magic. Can't wait to hear more.
Another Great Song From Onyx!Onyx are a class act. This song is well produced and original. It tells a story told with soul by the lead singer who has a great and original voice. Its good that at last real music is making a fight back and much of it is on Number One Music!
Dead or aliveNice sounding song. Sounds a little like a drum machine. I prefer real drums. The voice is really good. The tune is nice and guitars sound tight and good quality sound. Overall good song. Almost radio quality. Good luck in the future. I like the sound. Keep making music. I think you guys have a future in music. Check mine out. All done with real players and instruments. Take care
Dead or AliveI thought it started a bit slow...but it built to a very good mid tempo rocker. The instrumentation is very good and so is the lead vocalist. The guitar work is fine...the lead guitar is very tasty....very nice work. I recommend it.
Dead or AliveArrangement: An interesting juxtaposition between moderate rock and heavy metal. Guitar overlays are blended well, adding to the flavor of both tracks. Drums are well structured, Nice flow to the tempo, no rushing, no dragging. I like the way the bass and drums have just a quiet moment together, each providing a backdrop to whats about to come next. Well done! Lyrics: Thought provoking. Lets the listener reach for their own conclusions instead of forcing the issue. Vocals: Clear and crisp. You can hear the plaintive cry of a soul in anguish. Mix: Here is a good mix of carefully crafted musicianship. Well done! Keep up the good work......flow on. Donivan.
DEAD OR ALIVEWELL PRODUCED TRACK FROM THEIR FORTH COMING ALBUM THIS SONG HAS A GOTH VIBE AND SOME DARKER UNDERCURRENTS PERMEATING THROUGH TO YOUR SUB CONSCIENCE I LIKE THE VOCAL RANGE IN THE CHORUS WHEN THE TRACK REALLY HITS ANOTHER GEAR AND THE MOODY LEAD GUITAR SOLOS ADDING AN ALMOST PARANORMAL THING TO THE WHOLE PRODUCTION IF THIS IS AN INDICATION OF WHATS COMING FROM THE ALBUM BETTER GET READY FOLKS
DECENT!This tune is well worth listening to, I was not disappointed (as can happen sometimes)! Good guitar sound, good solid vocals, I would like that guy singing in MY band! The subject material of the song is way cool, the chorus and verses are a great point-counterpoint match. I like it, way to go guys!!!
