Dawn of a New Day
You've got a sound!! As soon as it started I knew this was gonna be great.....your voice suits this to a T....brilliosa Erik!!!
Spent some time listening to Superunknown...so I took a liking right away...vox are more Iggy to me..very raw and in your face !!! The element of attitude shines !!!
Sorry Erik, I must also add to my previous review, AWESOME singing!
Well done, and I wish you the very best
Wow, incredible song here Erik, always great music from you, and the lyrics are just incredible, mind-blowing in every way!
I love the pacing of the music, it has a brooding, rock intensity, which, if I may say so reminds me of the Stooges "Funhouse" album, which is awesome, but you have more current concerns to get across, which you do admirably here!
Killer Fuzz Guitar tone here!!
That's what my ear loves.. ;)
What's that guitar grinding through man?? :) thumbs!
That set of guitars in the Pic do magic in your hands
To me this is your stand out track without a shadow of a doubt. I keep coming back to this one. PJ
Cool song, I like that hypnotizing rythym, sound something like a Henrix type song, gotta hear more like this! Rock on!!
whooa wow the Jimi Hendrix Experience will be proud of your works
That main riff is sooo cool...personally I prefer that slow grinding rhythm to when it moves up a gear...but that's just me. R8ed. \m/
Rockin tune! Cool vibe on this one. Creative melody line too. Works for the tune. Nice job. Thumbs up. Wait for Stars
Yeah you have tightened it up a bit but have to say the vocal didnt need redoing . Still sounds f**d up but liked the general 3 am 20 fags / Jack Daniels sound to the original . Still a great tune tune and guitar buzz wicked .
Yeah, "drop D"'s fun, ain't it? Like all your throwin' at it, 'specially that bodacious lead work. Lyrics/vocals not bad, remind me of someone I can't quite put my finger on....Nice job! Thumbs up from me, now I gotta go tune my E string down a notch.....
I echo the thoughts of most Erik and top job on the chart placing. Excellent work my friend.
One of your best Erik. Tony hit it on the head I think, listening and "watching" your progression in playing, singing and your production skills (in particular) is a thing of beauty.
You are a poet with a rock beat to get the words out. There is a Hendrix feel to this one.
I especially like the way the lines begin with single words (all caps to make your point) and then go on to the explanation of the words and what you see as the meaning behind them in your life context.
Good match of text and beat...did I mention the screaming riffs ;)
Enjoyed this one a lot. Thanks for sharing your optimism about the ultimate outcome of it all.
Just had to listen to this again . F**king great vocals !
This track would be so good on the movie The Crow! Very much cool man!
Hmmm. liked this - gave me hope that I was not the only one who missed the train to the 80s s and beyond good on you and keep em coming ;) - jon
Great vocal delivery dude ! Sounds like your falling out of a bar or something . Wicked sludgy production in the bottom end . Guitar got some nice dissonance and great lift off at about 2 mins into track .
Hey Erik, all the artists here have said it all but the one I liked best said "are you a time traveler?"...I think you are man! Your stuff drips with sludge and all the trappings of the 60's, 70's Psychedelic scene...there isn't another musician on this site or any that I know of that writes, records and produces music like this! Thumbs up for sure Buddy!
great grungy guitar cool writing and nice vocal timbre which sits well on this track, Nice one!
You know what Eric, you do rock and I mean that. Your comment on my song "friends" spot on and amazed me. You have skills and I sincerely hope you make it in the music world! It totally needs a dose of reality and more importantly it needs to get back to what music is really about. I'm rooting for you! Kudos.
Well placed instruments. Obi Wan has taught you well. Drums need to come UP UP UP!!! Bass is good and very trippy. Also very 'Come Together' (Beatles, you know that one?). A trippy track all round, bit like a psychadelic brit pop tune! Was your guit in tune after that big wammy drop? Good work, Erik. Thumbz easy!
Guitars on this have beef and good clarity Erik... nice distance between the guitars and melodies...Drum pattern is solid, just maybe needs some more guts, more punch?.. Melody of the track is interesting.. Fair play that you do all this yourself... thats by no means and easy thing..
Excellent track Erik. I think I've said this about your style. It reminds me a lot of Ace Frehley. I love your playing man! Sometimes I find it helps to have the lyrics burned into the brain before laying down the vocal track. Not always but more often than not it allows you to get into and convey the meaning of the song.
This track has an exciting feel with a good raunchy sound. Like the bass riff and you've done well with the lead guitars, without cluttering each other. Ideal vocal for this style of music. Well done
Hey, this is stuff that I put on on Sunday morning to continue the party from the previous night. Simply to get everyone back into the listening to loud music and opening another beer etc mood. In my party days of course. Seriously this has that 70's progressive mood that is timeless. With your own touch of course and so it should be. On second thoughts I'd put it on at any time throughout the party.
Great opening riffage and unlike some of your previous songs there is a good guitar clarity and no real fights for placements with too many competitive guitar tracks. It's a cool track dude and I bet you're proud of it. So ya should be ya corner dancing, baseball-hat wearing thug lol!! Thumzup. Not on me proper setup but i can tell the drum track needs a boost in places - only real crit.
No, this one is the one that blows me away! Beautiful oooverdriven guitar. Excellent singing almost everywhere, sort out the lines where you stumble to get all the syllables in. Are your drums programmed?
This is good Erik. The arrangement is super 1970's on steroids. You must be a freakin time traveler. Great stuff here and you have come leaps and bounds from last year. Wow man, what growth. This piece has some real strength and passion on all fronts. You never cease to amaze.
Yeah Erik, I am really into your sound, gotta love that drop D tuning, I love alternative tuning and I love this.
Nice philosophy - great guitar work on this - nice and heavy - well up in the mix - look forward to the finished version
I started making these songs in December 2009 and worked at it for at least a few hours each and every day until Summer 2013, when I was in the middle of mixing a song and decided I was finished making music.
I had to figure out how to play each instrument, record, mix, and pretty much everything else associated with what you will hear on this page, although, I was fortunate enough to be able to collaborate on a few tracks with other musicians here, and that was cool for a long time until I started getting frustrated with the limitations of my recording set up. Latency issues threw off the timing on each track, so that created a lot of extra work, and the mixing would sound right to my ears through the monitors, but once the song was finalized and played the sound never matched, so I would mix it again, and again. In other words, I wasn't creating the music I was expecting to make, I was spending more time editing my drum tracks and re-finalizing mixes that it wasn't fun any more. I was stuck in beginner land and I finally had enough of the limitations and just said, "... it!"
