Hi, we're a Metal band from Mexico. We are working on our debut, a concept album based on the themes of the Divine Comedy. So far we've only recorded one demo for the album, Nothing To Die For, the album's opener. It would be pretty awesome if you could listen to it and maybe give us some feedback.

BTW, in what sub-genre would you classify that song?

It sounds really amateurish, not so much in terms of sound quality, just overall attack and timing. The playing itself isn't amazing, but could pass if you were aiming to write ugly or really heavy metal, but instead you've mixed this really sweet and mellow ballad passage with caveman singing and it just sounds laughable. Speaking of which he's singing way too atonally and virtually in the wrong key a couple of times. The Synths are definitely hitting a few wrong notes as there are some really sour spots (not in a jazzy way), and the same can be said of the guitars early on, where you're playing major chords and like a minor scale thing with the dying out lead. Keep working on it, if you're optimistic you can iron out bad fragments pretty effectively when songwriting.

Well, then we'll try to improve that. Any particular recommendation regarding the vocals? I'm the vocalist, so I'd like to hear some recommendations.
