Your studio sound over all is great, I like the low-fi /"1980s indie singles" quality, (great)
the guitars, vocals, and drums are cool, but from the 2 songs I heard so far, the playing is too loose.
The guitar sounds out of time with the drums.

The song "Year Of The Maniac" is better than "City Of Danger", but I know being a one-man band/project and trying to record is difficult.
I have only been in a few bands in the past, but we had to rehearse the same song repeatedly, over and over and over, to get it tight.
Going to check out your whole album you shared, didn't notice it before.
:P

I'm glad to hear this, i hope you enjoy it

it is a bit tough record as a one-man band but the more i do it it get's abit more easier

also i have to kinda agree with my playing being too loose, but i have to say i've been getting alittle better but i can't say really since i don't want to sound like most of those egotistical musicians out there, lol

i'm glad to hear more of these types of responses.

I like the rough production and the obscure 80s demo guitar tone, but it sounds like everything is off time. Vocals could us a little work as well. Lots of cool riffs on the album though. I look forward to hearing some more progression. Keep it up!

This is the kinda thing that makes me want to get my own solo project up an running. I've got a whole album written, it's just hard to find the time/resources to record when you've got other bands on the go.

Sounds like you're still have a lot of trouble with the timing. What program are you using for the drums/recording?

i'm kinda embarrased to say it but for the drums, it's a keyboard

it's all i have for drum sounds, i'm gonna go and say it's not the drums but my lack of rhythm

while the recording sounds better than the first mix (yeah, i remixed this ep) wich had alot to do with the vocal track, it was a pain to record since i had some technical problems with my computer recorder (usb microphone and wavepad recorder) so i kinda lost interest in recording.

so there was that, i then i regave listens and listens and then decided to record a whole new set of tracks including a re-recorded song from this ep, if you ask me it's much better, all i have to do is record bass.

Gotta work with what you got. I've used RSE(A guitar pro plug in) for some demo drums before. It sounds decent enough, but the hit frequency isn't all that great and it ends up sounds pretty sloppy even if it's all on time.

I'm having some troubles myself right now with recording guitars. Windows 7 has some latency issues that causes a minor delay when i'm playing guitar. Makes recording pretty much impossible. FL Studio has a driver that fixes it almost perfectly, but it's preventing my recording program from working properly. I might just invest in a new sound card.
