A New Path To Kill A New Path To Kill

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty Sweet

I have to say, from what I've heard, (Here and on the Myspace) You guys are pretty good.
I'd recommend adding a little more melody to the guitars. They're doing the harmonys (3rds I'm guessing?) but, it's mostly widdly stuff, if you'll excuse the term.
The properly melodic stuff is almost simplistic.
I think, if you upped the ante by averaging out the hard rhythms with the melodic side, it could definitely go places. I'd suggest listening to Pray for Villains by DevilDriver, if you havn't already. It's a good mix of the melody with the hard hitting rhythms.
Also, I'd suggest you get rid of The Shining clip. It's offputting, and more important, if the song does get big (which it could) that kind of thing is a legal minefield.
I know a bang who used a 5 second clip from lord of the rings on a demo and they got completely ear raped for it by their manager after they got signed.

Anyway, that's my two cents, and a bit more.
Good job!

Lol Thanks for the suggestions........ we love the song the way it is, but when it comes time to record the full length album thing will probably change a bit. I also been thinking about uploading the version without the clip since it is a bit long but is damn for playing live shows the crowd loves that shit. We also know about the legal issues with that clip but bands do that shit all the time haha. Thanks for the review dude.
