Force the Issue (Calgary, AB Canada)

Postby thoughtlessbrian » Jul 11th, '12, 17:30

Alright guys, I've posted a work in progress of vocals for Song 1 (Forgotten) check it out, let me know what ya think!

I wonder if this thread should be moved to the Canadian area? Khet?

Here ya go guys, the whole 5 song EP is now up on Soundcloud, I'm just gonna try and throw together some sort of logo, and then put it all together for a download. There will also be the cover song included with the download!! Woo Hoo!!

For now, this is just instrumental, I'll add vocals later if I can write some haha.

By the way, anyone good at making logos?

Alright, here is a test master of 1 of the tunes, still needs tweaking, but it's close I think, have a listen!

https://soundcloud.com/thoughtlessbrian/song-3-test-master

I recorded all guitars, and rented a bass to track to bass parts, starting to get into the groove of bassing , I think I came up with some decent stuff.

Is anyone here good at mixing and mastering? Haha

More to come!



Hey all, I just recorded some new riffs and threw them up on Soundcloud, let me know what ya think! It's still very rough (recorded it late last night)

I also finally found a drummer who can play fast and isn't shitty! haha So hopefully I'll have some full on music to show off soon.

WOO HOO!

I see a lot of potential in what you guys are doing. With a full band this could be kind of bad ass.

Haha! I'm a guitarist/vox and i jam all the time with my best friend who's a bassist/vox. we'd be perfect fit for you guys! XD since you're a lead guitarist and have a fast drummer.

I got excited for a minute cos I saw you're somewhere near the west coast of canada, and I'm in vancouver for a year or more..but i think you're in calgary? Also the songs lean a bit too much towards metal for what I'd want to play (because I'm not good enough to play technical metal :) )


Then there's also the slight problem of me having no gear whatsoever cos I left it all back home...

Well, anyway, I'll be keeping an ear on this!

I'm about a 12 hour drive from Vancouver, been there a couple times with my various punk and metal bands haha.

Next time I'm headed that way we should meet up!

Also, it just takes practice to get good at the techy stuff ;)

Uploaded a 4th tune in the works and added the 2nd song (forgot about it haha) that we have done up.

These are all just rough versions of the songs, mostly recorded so we don't forget how they go hah, happens a lot.

Hopefully start a proper demo recording soon!
