Forth repeat listen now btw... ;)
Dither! Just stopping by to old mates that might have commented on my stuff.. ;) this is great! I dont even know if your still around here but that acoustic track frankly kicks ass. The string keys are a good fit and i feel like there natural in the track.. nice subtle climax for a "subtle" track. This simple piece of music, repetative and lulling, is a perfect example of "natural" music to me.. simple. Beautiful, felt, point taken. You friend are a musician.
Hey you~ how the heck are you these days? :) Long time since my last hello... so hello, Steve!
Listening to "Her Caress" - and I must compliment the musical lovliness going on here~ a very special piece of music, I can tell. Love it. =Bravo=
Very very nice, dont know how i missed this.
This is very pretty Steve, growing gently as a good tune ought....
Nice guitar work - very clean and precise. Arrangement eases it's way in beguilingly and keeps you interested. Lush strings add warmth and depth. Classy all round.
Welcome Back! What A lovely Track to return with this is classy. A beauty especially when those strings drift in. Really enjoyed this. Thanks.
Very beautifully played and composed dude! This is saying what I want to hear. I'm smellin what you stepped in (I mean that in a great way Steve!). Awesome sound-scape that flows with the guitar.
This is a very pleasant surprise for me as I was expecting this to be Alternative Metal. This is a very beautifully composed acoustic track. I enjoyed every second of it. A delight to listen to. Thumbs up from me. Hope it does very well on this site. PJ
Thought this was going to be acoustic guitar only until the high strings came in with the addition of the cello. Made the listen for me.... Enjoyed
Very cool relaxing tune here. I like the sound of the acoustic with the background keyboard. Nice work.
well fcuk me pink :p Ditheramb back with a new tune :) maybe a wip but anything new from you guys is a welcome addition in my house :) great string combo, Steve :) now get it finished :)...peace,Ricky
Love the acoustic guitar picking - very melodic piece - nice lead work too - subtle percussion and strings really add to the beauty of the composition - absolutely love this - an easy vote. James.
More to Come...
Darkest Hour is a bizarrely structured song. I found it difficult to distinguish between verse, chorus, middle eight, bridge, intermissions and such like. However, the changes in timing, feel and dynamic did keep the track very interesting although at times they do sound a bit disjointed. The fact that there was not an openly recognisable chorus detracted slightly from my enjoyment of the pi
The title of this track (3 away) reminds me (and not many people will know this) that our word “trivia” originates from the Latin meaning the meeting of three ways (tri via) or crossroads, which was, supposedly a place where people gathered to chat about nothing in particular.
Having said that, the song in question is about a subject that is anything but trivial although doubtless those a
Well now, this just makes me wanna be in a band again! I used to listen to a lot of metal so I feel I'm qualified enough to say just how great this is. To me, this track takes the best parts of metal (high energy performances, hard-hitting riffs) and mixes it with melodic beauty in both the vocal and guitar performances and even the roughness of grunge. Quite a lethal mixture! For me, something st
Since I came across this Australian band when I reviewed In My Shadow (October 2005), they have seldom been off my radar. Part of that allure has to be down to my own liking for the band's rock credentials and their particular slant on what the term 'metal' should mean. Part of that is down to a personal friendship with Steve Kinghorn (the most visible member of the band). The ot
Steve from Ditheramb seems to be the chief cook and bottlewasher of this group of talent and it is him that I have got to know as a musician of some quality.We first crossed swords when he asked me to put their track Darkest Hour to Classical music. I have to say at this point I am not a lover of most heavy metal but there are exceptions and what I have heard from this lot certainly changes my min
Ditheramb - Euphoria
Moody metal is what we're dealing with here and it's obvious from the start that these guys know their stuff. Not only that, they're melodically commercial enough to stand a real chance on actually making it into the larger arena.
If I can get a gripe out of the way before I carry on, though, the vocals are generally way too quiet to suit such a powerfully played song, eve
Okey dokey, lets get started.....
My first admission is that I know about as much about metal as I do
about 3rd Century Mongolia.......in other words, not alot! So when
Steve from Ditheramb replied to my offer of a review I was, well,
wary..... but this is a really class track.

I'm the first to admit I dont know what the perfect Metal 'Track
Hello everyone again!!
This is my third time reviewing the 4 man band, Ditheramb (which to me
gives the sound of a REAL bad lisp of
saying, “Dice a lamb”). If you haven’t
heard of this amazing epic rock band you should be aware that they consist of
the following: Jack Greenhill, playing the bass guitar, Glenn Townsend,
hitting the drums, Steve Kinghorn, as the lead sing
This song is an epic metal song that has different personalities. I hear a mellow hint of Pink Floyd and a mixture of Sabbath, Priest... This all blends into a metal song that speaks of letting go, death, in my analysis. The song structure is smooth to frantic and back again and on to the climax. This schizophrenic mixture seems to work and I liked the structure. This song
The Kinghorn brothers (Steve and Scott), Jack Greenhill and Glenn Townsend collectively known as Ditheramb have - in the space of a year - carved themselves out quite a reputation for fiery, rock based tracks and have a lot of credibility from this reviewer. I got some cute metal ears after having spent many years getting blown from wall to wall by this heavy metal band or that one.&nb
Hey again to everybody. This time around I’m going to be delving into some metal.
The name of the group is Ditheramb, and I’m going to cover a tune titled “In My Shadow”.
Ditheramb - Crushed to Dust
Hello once again everybody!
Ah, what do we have here today?
Oh sweet, it’s Ditheramb once again!
This is my third time reviewing the 4-man rock band. For those first hearing of Ditheramb, the
members consist of: Jack Greenhill, playing the bass guitar,
Glenn Townsend, hitting the drums, Steve Kinghorn, as the lead singer who plays
the guitar, and last but no
MP3 Unsigned is a site that hosts many fine artists, covering just about every genre known to man. I have spent almost two years reviewing those artists by now and I think I have a pretty good grip on who does what. Out of all those musicians though, there aren't that many that make music that is - in any meaningful way - different. Sure the site has it's share of musical oddball
Wow I feel like I’ve been generous with ratings so far, but
I guess the songs I’ve listened for reviewing just caught my attention real
quick and made me real happy with the result.
Anyways, this is the second time I’ve reviewed the 4-man
band, Ditheramb, who I can introduce to you:
Jack Greenhill, playing the
bass guitar, Glenn Townsend, hitting the drums, Steve Ki
Brisbane, Australia's Ditheramb (consisting of Steve and Scott Kinghorn,Jack Greenhill and Glenn Townsend btw) impressed me enormously from the first track I reviewed, In My Shadow (October 2005). Their blend of styles and arranging skills helped because I haven't been known to be into metal since I got rid of me acne by chopping off my head. No, wait a minute. That can't be righ
Stained with power and performance.
I’m back. This is my second review on here and this is a far more familiar sound and ground for me. I’ve loved rock music since 1994, I was 12, and I’ve continued a massive interest ever since! I’ve never been very unconventional in my tastes, my favourite band was always Metallica as well as loving korn, slipknot, roses and a bit of biscui
Now Ditheramb hail from Austalia which is good as two of my favourite artists of all time are from there, Midnight Oil, and INXS. So thats a good start :o)
For a metal track this starts quietly with some nice guitar leading into Steves' excellent vocals, which are joined by the drums, and then lead onto a crescendo of the group kicking in. This gives way again to the more subtle music
This is quite a cool song, but as an objective listener, I become and objective reviewer, but don't get worried...lol
first off, the recording needs some help, leaves a little to be
desired, I can't really hear what the guitar is doing until it get's a
little more excitable, but overall, it clips in spots, and is a bit
muddy, but I'll get off my engineers stool and get to the song itself.
Well this is the 3rd review I have done for ditheramb, I was a fan after doing the first review and after the 2nd I was man why aint this band in my cd collection.
Now we are on the 3rd review, and does my opinion change? The answer is nope. Main reason, Steve has just uploaded another bunch of quality tracks. So guess who, has a mini ditheramb album? Yup that wasn’t hard me of course. It’s not
Alright guys! See? I told you I was going to do more reviews, not that you were doubting me or anything, lol.
Anyways, back on task!
This is gonna be a straight forwards review no silliness honest J
From the start to the end all 30 or 40 seconds ;) only joking.
of this track screams western, Pistols @ dawn and all that, I reviewed this band on my last set of reviews And pretty much thought yup these guys are going places, and I am still standing by this. Again I can hear influences but im not gonna harp on about that. its pla
So we are back on course, or are we?……..this reviewing game is a piece of cake ;)
It is now anyway, and im about to have a massive slice of this cake. Here goes this is going to be fun
As soon as this bad boy fires up, it’s back to my roots, roots been my music preferences. The question here is, which musical influences, smack my head around the most, with this monster of a track?
The major problem with reviewing so many tracks a month is that you quickly forget just why you gushed buckets over this track but not over that one... Take Ditheramb for example. This Brisbane, Australian four peice heavy rock band got inundated with praise when I reviewed In My Shadow (October 2005) and for the life of me I couldn't remember the track at all when I came to write this
Allow me to make myself extremly clear. A rating above a 7 means i think it is ready for radio. i see a 7 as an average professional track by a professional artist.
While its hot on my mind, there is a breakdown where an almost magical guitar sound comes in before a huge hit and the music verse comes back in. Make sure you peeps reading this check out this magic riff, i shall re
I could have sworn I had reviewed this metal outfit from Brisbane (from the land Down Under) but having exhausted all my search facilities I've come up a complete blank. I have a suspicion it disappeared into a black hole after my last computer crash. And they said it would make life easier, eh? Yeaaahhh, right. Hear that whooshing sound?, that's the wind flapping in the pi
In My Shadow by Ditheramb
Hello! Tedd-Z again!
Aaah... good old rock! Haven't reviewed rock in a long time, so I had to adjust a little! Makes a nice change from electronic music, tho!
First impressions... it sounds good! Everything's clear, claritable and has its own space, so the production work is very good! Arrangement is fine aswell! Not too stop-start, not dragged too much! Performance is
Wow, you said outside my genre, and you were right. But i am a music lover 1st and foremost. and my 1st impression is wow. This is a great track, but first things first, the instrumental. Melodic metal is the correct phrase to describe this!! Excellent changes of pace in places and i have to say i really enjoyed the way you swapped from quiet, haunting melodies to heavy, distorted leads. The intro
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the Metal genre, since it was the music I grew up on as a kid. Ditheramb is a melodic metal band from Australia, and they have asked for a review on the tune “ Crushed to Dust”.
For those who don't know I am an avid listener of new music and half of the duo Serenity here at mp3unsigned.com.
As many of you know I'm not a great rock/metal fan preferring chill out and more commercial rnb/dance/pop tunes. So it takes a pretty decent track for me to think otherwise. I have my favourites that constantly surprise me, however
AN MP3 Unsigned artist I hadn't heard anything about until I picked up on a forum conversation, Ditheramb is a 4 piece outfit from Brisbane in Australia - and we'd better not hold that against them eh? The band consists of brothers (?) Steve Kinghorn (gtr/vocals) and Scott Kinghorn (gtr/backing vocals), Glenn Townsend (drums) and Jack Greenhill (bass). Formed in 2003, it appears they s
‘Crushed To Dust’ – a few wordies from Spyda
I was asked to add ‘Crushed To Dust’ to my Feb 5 review thread on behalf of Ditheramb, because being based in Australia & due to the difference in time zones they miss out on review threads here on MP3Unsigned. So here goes.
Before I joined MP3Unsigned in April 2004 I would never ever have given the rock & metal genres a
listened to this a while back a couple of times then left it alone to
have a think about it. A few more listens. Ok what passed my
hallowed aural portals?
I like this composition. The dynamics of the song are very well worked
out and really give the song a great listening edge. From the
vocal to the instrumentation it's as tight as a badgers ass.
Slow start but gradually built into a superb deep guitar bliss of madness and lost soulfull voice tones, this band from Brisbane Australia shows a lot of great quality for the metal/heavy rock community. The bridge work is great in this, with a moderate break halfway through the song, it didn't drown out the purpose of the song, to take you on a heavy adventure into the unknown.
