    Not bad, but tell your lead singer to get singing lessons... At least some basic ones which include breathing. There is almost no pressure behind his voice.

    Yeah, it's not that he'd be a bad singer, but he needs to have more confidence behind that voice.

    So how long have you been together? Keep working on it, you've got what it takes to produce the tunes and you know how to play your instruments pretty well, but I think you all need a little more confidence. Don't sweat it, it'll come with time. Otherwise, nice work :thumb:

    hey, thanks for the feedback guys. We've been a band for a couple years now. We are trying to do the "co-lead singers" thing, i don't know if you noticed but theres two guys trading off parts in the new song. Are you talking about the one who sings the high parts? we do take singing lessons by the way, but yeah, we're definitely working on improving our vocals all the time. i think what you're hearing may be partly the way the songs were mixed/EQ'd...

    by the way check back during the weekend if you're interested, we should should have a new song up by then! :)

    I think the punkpop style of singing doesn't mesh well with the screaming or the tapping guitar parts. The riffs were nice, though.

    Well, in that case, both should take lessons... ;)

    Just try to hold your breath when singing just below the diaphragm. Do it as long as you're comfortable, then breathe. It makes the difference between weak and strong voices. (I don't know if you get what I mean. It's easier to show the trick to someone.)

    The music is good and all, it's really not bad at all. I dop agree with the comments in this thread especially Susipaisti's. I think you hesitate between different styles in your song American Outlaws, perhaps you should stick to one (I mean as far as the singing is concerned either go all the way and get a heavier more aggressive voice or keep up singing in a lighter mood? Mixing both is very tricky).
    All is all it's worth listening (and IMO it's much better than the crap they play on the radios). Keep up the good work.
