Said hed be your savior...

Alright, opinions needed on our recording of "Messiah"

http://www.ragefiremusic.com/messiah.mp3

This is Demo Part I, which is basically the song's final structure and a rough idea of what we want it to sound like. No vocals.

Thoughts? Likes, dislikes?

It's hard to get a good feel without vocals. This is our C# Sabbathy sounding song. Guitar and bass laid down in one take (sorry for the shitty solo.) We're trying to get a few ideas so we can tweak it for the final recording, which will include vocals. Then we'd like to close the book on this song for a while.

Our next song, which is half-way recorded, is quite a bit different then this... far more complex (which is why it only got half-way recorded today!)

Musically, it's really solid. And the solo isn't as bad as you say it is. I'll be interested to hear it with vocals!

Thanks

Yeah, I will be too actually, since we have a new vocalist and a new vocal line (this song used to be something totally different with our old vocalist in another a band.)

Here's the lyrics:

But a man came to you—said he’d be your savior
He promised that he’d set you free—if you did’m a favor
“There’s some people out there, son, that’d keep you here
They’d rather keep you locked away, and riddled full of fear,”
“But I’ve got a plan, man, don’t be afraid
A little planned destruction is gonna get you paid!”

I’ve never had to kill a man—‘til I was ordered to—
Opened my eyes to the sins they willfully pursued,
Necessary casualties, just victims of themselves
And now I’ll send them on their way, to feel the wrath of hell
I do my master’s work, and leave my will behind
Sow the seeds of vengeance through the land of the blind

(Sinstrumental)

I can’t explain to you, the way that I feel
This pain inside me just cannot be real
I know what I’m doin’ is wrong, but I just can’t quit
The angel on my wing is Death, and forever he shall sit
I have been following an unholy, hateful lie
When I think about it now, I think I’d rather die

I didn't write 'em, our new guy did. It's part of a two song concept. It's a little (a lot?) cheesy, but it's counter-acted by the second song, which I did write.

Eh, the lyrics are little bit too much O:MC to me, but they're still pretty good.

Yeah, my buddy - the other guitarist/bassist (we alternate) - wrote the bulk of this one. It's definitely our most Sabbath sounding. Next week it's one of my soungs, which, surprise, has a 'Ryche vibe (with shades of Megadeth and even Tool.)

Thanks

The weird thing about it is the guy wrote it before we even showed him O:MC

But yes, I warned him of the same thing and actually changed a few parts, because it was even closer before.

well it's amazing to be honest. I don't like the bassline so much. But personal preference!
Make sure to send this on once you have vocals on it. And who wrote the guitar?
