BULB/PERIPHERY-ICARUS LIVES COMPLETE WITH VOCALS!!

Hey guys!

We have been makin moves on this ep (and also trying to get a nice little 2 song teaser to burn onto cdrs and give out at shows and whatever) so we got icarus done with the new mix and with vocals (lyrics are up on the page as well)

Even though the mix has been revamped, its still good old DFHS and Podxt as usual.
I used my Petrucci 7 string and my Schecter 5 string bass for the parts and the Line 6 toneport with my AT4033 mic to record vocals.

So here is the link if you want to check it out:

Enjoy!

That was pretty cool. I like how you added a solo. It really fit the song and sounded cool. I actually prefer this song as just an instrumental, though. As always, awesome stuff.

yeah its always weird to hear a song with vocals for the first time, it just takes some getting used to and then before you know you think not having vocals on it was crazy!
i still remember how a ton of people thought that vocals ruined "the walk" when i first posted that version haha!
but yeah i kept the original up as well for those who wanted to hear it instrumentally!

Absolutely. I had been playing this song with my bass player for a long time (with no guitarist) and then he switched to lead guitar and, as soon as he did, I made him make tons and tons and tons of lead guitar parts. He said, "But I wanted to play it like this. I never write songs like this!" (referring to the way I had written that part of the song) and I said, "Yeah, but you were on bass. My vision for this part of the song is to have the lead guitar like this and this and this." And so he tried it out. We created 5 different lead guitar parts for the song and now he can't even imagine playing it the way it was before. For another song, once we got two guitarists, I added a lead guitar leading up from the clean part into the distorted part and not having the lead guitar now makes the song sound much less vibrant and makes the distorted part less effective. The lead guitarist for my band is completely looking at all our songs differently now.

It'll probably take quite a few more listens until I really get used to the new version, because the instrumental version of "Icarus Lives!" is my favorite out of all your songs (I really like "Year Long Car Alarm" - that might be #2).

Bulb, my kid gave it his way up by dancing to it all over the living room. I'm going to have to post a vid of him grooving to Periphery.

I absolutely loved it. The solo was an awesome touch and the lyrics are just nuts! The only thing I could say about it is that the solo seemed a slight bit, very slight, forward in the mix, but I'm straining to find anything wrong with it.

Please tell me you're shopping your material to a label...!

I'm listening to Your music for a while now. I think I have never left any comment cause always I was speachles to what I've hear. Awsome music, production, groove and dynamics that I just love to hear in modern music.

I though that You can't suprise me any more....

and You did with those vocals. I think that they match perfect to the style You're creating!!!

Waiting to see Your full CD to come out

best wishes!!!!

DUDE! NICE! I like the instrumental version a bit more because Im not really in to these kind of vocals. But damn, sometimes it just fit perfectly with the song... The best thing about the new version is the solo though, Awesome work on that one!

Honestly prefer the vocal-less version. If any of the songs lent themselves to instrumentals, it was this one. There's just a ton of stuff going on that needs the primary focus on it, not the vocals.

Very cool, i was a bit worried that it'd all be shouty meshuggah style, but the singing bits are cool, possibly i'd go for some more as it's too good to only to once in the chorus at the beginning of thereof. The clean vocals are really good, avoid the cheese associated with them currently and really break it up. So i'd tip the balance a little more towards them while keeping the screaming as well.

Other than that, very very cool. Just sounds stupidly pro!

YES-WAY!

I'm loving it, and I actually prefer the vocals. I'm digging your singer. he sounds bad-ass, like a mix of Jens Kidman, Randy Blythe, and a little touch of Phil Anselmo.

I love the lyrics, too. Very neat analogous take on the whole Icarus theme. Except for the very end. High on coke? That .... sounds ridiculously stupid, to be honest. I can't express my disdain for that lyrical bit enough, which is odd, because the rest of the lyrics are so brilliant. It's like 2 different songs. But the other 95% are so ....ing cool. I love lyrics that are sort of parable-like in nature. Coming out and saying "I'm ....ing doing drugs, man!" is a let down - you should let the listeners draw their own conclusions from the thematic content.


Awesome.

I've liked this song even when it didn't have vocals.

Nicely done though, Bulb. The vocals are brutal. Awesome job!

Awesome.
wow thanks everyone! im glad most of ya dig the vocals and i hope they will grow on the rest of you haha!

you know wolfy thats interesting man, to us it was more like a joke, see cuz like jake wrote some psuedo cheesy lyrics about flying and living in the moment but then the last line was basically like: yeah dude im not being insightful im just really high on coke! It gave me a good laugh when i first read it and im not always up for ultra serious lyrics (dont worry not a true story either, the most we do is the occasional joint), and that just seemed like a nice little almost sarcastic twist there.

Ah... hmm. Well, makes sense then, Meesh.

Y'know tho... those lyrics really are kinda deep and insightful. That bit at the end almost seems... incongruous. Like, a square peg in a round hole. I love silly, farcical stuff, but with a song that sounds that bad-ass, and full of meaning, it just seems out of place.

Ya feel me?

Still, it's wicked awesome, and the rest of the lyrics were surprisingly deep and yet surreal. I ....ing loved 'em (except for that last bit. Even humorous, it seems jarring. ) I love writing lyrics, and take them pretty seriously. Hence, my anal-probishness.
