    I like this. Love the combination of so many genres dude. :yesway: First heard you when you posted "Something" on the Mike Portnoy forum back in the day. I might end up purchasing this, I would do so now were I not a broke college student who can only spend so much money each month supporting other artists. :lol:

    Side note: are you seriously only 18? If so that really depresses me haha.

    Had some Vai like qualities to it (speaking about noodle). You have very smooth buttery licks and everything is mixed so well. It ranges from upbeat bends to ecstatic progressive licks... just so damn good. Could literally listen to the EP for hours on end.

    :)

    yeah dude, im psyched to get that going :yesway:

    cheers! guitar rig 4 for guitars, bass is mostly direct with compression and EQ, though sometimes run through GR4. drums superior 2.0. all in logic! main guitar is an ibanez 6 string but theres also a shitty 3/4 scale nylon string in there at times

    I listened to this last night at 4 in the morning...absolutely brilliant...very well done.

    Cant believe you are just 18...you must of started very young/played for crazy hours a day or both to get that good at such a young age?..Do Tell

    Just came back to say that this is incredible.

    When are you going for the full release? If it's late enough, sing me up for drum recording. :lol:
