Hey guys, take a listen and let me know what you think. It's my new band, The Plagued's first demo, entitled The End of An Era. It's really shreddy, very Trivium influenced, and Im very proud of it. Unfortuantely the recording was rushed so some of it is not all that perfect. Thanks to any and all who give it a listen! :)
myspace.com/plaguedmusic it's the track titled "Halcyonic rough instrumental mix" No vox yet, just hit the studio a few days ago, no mixing yet so theres a few parts that need to be cut out. I basically wrote all the riffs and melodies, first solo is mine, please disregard cheesy band picture with 3D logo, it was a friend's idea and we didn't want to make him feel bad :) Thanks guys!!!
So my band is going pretty good, we're one of the only NON deathcore acts in the area and I think people can appreciate some nice solos and an absence of breakdowns every once in awhile. However I've got a question for you guys. Right now, going to College and what not, money is tight and I can't afford a half stack. I own a 75 watt combo amp that can get balls loud, plus it gets mic'ed as well...it just looks really dinky. So do you guys think that even with a lack of professional equipment, you can still play shows and not get laughed off stage? also what's the best way to buy a half stack? New like with a credit card or should I try ebay or craigslist? For now I don't want the fact that I don't own a halfstack to keep me from doing what I want. I've already played a few shows but they weren't to a diehard metal crowd thanks for any input!
This is my band, The Plagued, playing our first show. We chose to play Like Light to the Flies as our one cover and I think it turned out pretty awesome. In retrospect it was kind of cheesy because our puny little 75 watt combo amps stick out like a sore thumb lol Kudos to any one who catches the Tenacious D reference from my buddy Chris who intros us. And one more thing, (Im the dude playin guitar and singin) it's hard to play, sing, and move around and bang your head! How the hell does Matt do it? please watch and give me some feedback positive or negative http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmCtCw8cd3o
myspace.com/plaguedmusic Just started, thats our first recording done using garage band, the basic rhythm, bass, and drums were recorded live with no click track and then harmonies and solos were done over it. Im very proud of that song, it's my baby, written entirely by me, you can here so many mistakes in there but we didn't have enough to time to keep starting over and playing the whole song etc. Oh and I hate the solo but my ride had to be home so thats the first take lol please listen and let me know what you think! Add us too if you have time! Thanks fellow TWers!!
