Shit, I was meaning to listen to these, and now that I finally have a few minutes to check them out, they're gone.

I listened when I was really tired so it didn't register as well as it should have. I've since broken the onboard speaker on my phone and packed up everything for a move I'm doing later this week. Gonna have to wait til I can hear it again.

Sorry, they were the first drafts and I've since got some work done. I'll upload new versions by the weekend.

Made some more adjustments, rerecorded a few vocal parts and listening back right now. Should have them both back up tonight.

Jeff was on when I posted these. I'm going to squint my eyes at the thought of you until you write your thoughts.

Fuck dudes... I've been so wrapped up in Adrift that I forgot it was the mellow album. Then I started listening to stuff from Mississippi Is Burning and nearly lost my shit hearing it for the first time in a while.

This is some dark stuff. In general, I like the production and the feel you're going for, and I love the vocals, and the intro to the first song was great. Some parts for the guitars aren't usually my thing, but that's more from me not always loving doom-style guitars, rather than any of your choices.

The instrumental was pretty good. I like tracks that mix up the sound just enough, but not too much so that they still sound like they're from the same album.

You think it's dark?  I'm glad, I was kind of considering that it was a little more light hearted than I intended, with the clean vocals and clean guitars and all.  But I'm glad it is coming across as a little darker.

As for the production, also glad that's coming off as good.  I honestly haven't mixed the album at all and it's just adjusting the volume of each track.  Like I said after initial recordings, my mic on the base level is recording the exact sounds from my amp and it's what I wanted.  So it's nice to hear someone voice that they agree.  This is raw, but it just sounds right to me.

Vocals, I'm glad you like.  I like my harsh highs but I'm concerned about the cleans.  I decided to include them after recording the harsh vocals.  My voice was shot, I was a little drunk, and I was trying to project and hit the right thing.  At times I feel it's good because it is strained and honest.  Other times I feel it's shit because they aren't quite in tune.  So I'm curious to get further feedback on the cleans.  I'm debating between cutting them altogether or just rerecording them on a good day.

And for the instrumental/ambient song... did you feel it meshed well with the 2 you've heard?  I like going from electronic/ambient to metal but I was concerned it might be jarring.  Personally, I've listened to the rough draft of this album and I think it fits but I could just be desensitized to the switch.  Do you think it really works?  I like it.  I've got things in place to make the transition better than what you hear on the base tracks here, but if they still seem to work as is, that works even better.

I need to listen to the cleans again when I have a moment, but I do remember that they seemed somewhat low in the mix so I didn't really get a good feel for them before they ended.

As for the instrumental, I do think that it's a good sound and as I said, it's a bit of a changeup, but just large enough of one to make it interesting. It's smoothly implemented and still sounds like it's from the same album. I also just feel a touch of electronica mixes well with the space theme.

However, I'm a bit more open to "experimentation" than many metalheads I know, but even then it's brief enough that they can deal with it.

Well, some good news/bad news.

I know I've been taking my sweet ass time with mixing and stuff but I just got another hitch which also helps.  Just bought a bass... going to look at combo amps soon.  I'm looking at a nice little Orange amp but we'll see.  Anyway, that means this will be the first Lance recordings to have bass on them since the very first demo.  It will be a nice addition to the sound.  I know my guitar is tuned low but adding bass just adds a little something more. So, I guess the bad news is that the album is delayed just a little bit further to allow for me to buy an amp and then record the bass parts.

Hehe, things take time, and this addition should be worth the wait.

Yeah, I had already considered buying one and holding off with the album but went ahead anyway. But last week Leslie told me someone on Facebook was selling a bass because they liked their other one better. It was only $45 so I couldn't pass on that.

I expect it will make this album sound even better and more interesting than it was already. I was already thinking it would be May/June before I released but now I'm thinking more in the August area.

Ended up buying a nice little Orange combo amp. Should be fun. Bass recording should also be pretty quick since there is no need to layer it or record multiple parts.

She's cuter than that.

Bought a midi controller today but it's being a pain in the ass to set up right now.
