    Not gonna quote it but I saw Misha's response on pg 29. I kinda feel the same. It is weak and borderline fraud IMO.

    So the guy can play his ass off and write incredible shit. I get that, I have wrote some riffs that were pretty difficult for me to play at a time (I am no guitar god) but I practiced until I got it.

    Using backing tracks and not actually being able to pull it off is basically lip sync in my opinion. Like idk, to each their own. I don't hate the guy for it and the songs are still crazy good but I just find it weak and I would never be able to do that type of thing myself and be content.

    I don't know who wins the award for the most lack of enthusiasm while playing, this guy or Al Moomin.

    This guy only has 3.5k subscribers because he doesn't play through a 5k setup and spend half the video telling you about it. He's SERIOUSLY good.

    Yeah, but Kevin is legit and can actually play the songs :) Also remember he was in the band for a stint and sounds like he might be doing an upcoming show again with Haarp.

    VERY late to the party but... it sounds like he had a moment of clarity.

    “Maybe I’m just delusional” :ugh:

    Also the pic of Misha at the end, like he cares at all after all these years...

    After 10+ takes for a song you kinda lose that enthusiasm :D
    I reserve that for live shows hehe.

    Thanks man, that setup was sub 1k haha. I actually want to take youtube more seriously in the future, getting a new camera, talking and showing some stuff to get more subscribers and maybe make some money with it. At least that's what I'm planning.
    I'm still too busy with my apprenticeship for another year but after that it will be all about music again ;-)


    Thanks man, we couldn't get on the same page for joining permanently but I'm still their go-to fill in guitar player :D
    Though they currently have 2 serious candidates they want to tour with to get a feel with them and then they'll probably decide who's joining them full-time.

    The one thing that throws me off a lot, is how Al Mu'min always refers to "us":
    "We're currently making..."
    "Our next chapter..."
    "We really dug deep in ourselves, to find that inspiration..."

    Who the fuck is "us" or "we"? His 5 different personalities?

    Since Kevin is here and we're all fanboying over his playing, rightfully so... here's my fav WTF HOLY SHIT video of his. Like... what the fuck did I watch. And he did 400 takes according to the description. Not quite as cool though since he's playing a decent guitar and not an Ibanez GIO.. weird flex but I dig it!

    It's like when somebody starts an LLC but doesn't have any employees or partners. "We at Just One Guy LLC have X to offer" etc. I've had the same problem talking about some of my projects before, because it was just me, but it sounds awkward saying "I" all the time. Comes across as egocentric.

    Haha, yeah, exactly! I always speak of "my/our band" for people outside of music, too, even though 99% it's just me writing stuff.

    But in Al Mu'min's case... I don't know anything that wouldn't be egocentric =D

    Can someone tell me how some of us are grafting so damn hard and would never dream of conning people or treating them as bad as he has and continues to do - yet STILL they get on Euroblast?

    I cant even get emails back from Promoters and this numpty waster lands on his feet yet again?.

    The album he released is awesome. That's how. You don't have to be a good person to succeed. Look at the horror stories of Obscura's front man, and Chris Letchford, and Vektor's front man, all being accused of being crappy people, yet popular.

    I'm not saying your music isn't good, I've never heard it, which I could be missing out on. But HAARPs album is pretty darn good, and people pay/show up for good music, not nice people behind an instrument.
