Exclamation Reviews of the EP

Figured you may want a thread to keep track of any reviews you receive - perhaps even stickied. Let me be the first, though:

Martriden - Martriden EP

8/10

Fixed! Thanks for the correction, and you're welcome for the review. Hopefully there'll be many more to come.

Where'd you send it? I can think of a ton of maga/webzines that would probably review your EP....

There's The Metal Observer, too, if you're interested. Did you send it to magazines like Terrorizer, Metal Maniacs, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, Zero Tolerance, Unrestrained!, etc.?

not yet, I"m compiling mailing addresses to those places. Well..actually I did send it to the PR guy at Terrorizer, Jamie Graham. But I don't know if he'll send it to a reviewer or not. I'll probably have to send them another one.

Metal-rules.com is a good place for reviews too. They review a lot of "small" bands from the US. I've seen a few bands on there that I didn't think other people outside of their state knew existed, so there's a good chance to get a review.

When I get my EP, I would do a review, but it's not really my main musical style, so I wouldn't be able to say anything

Well, got the disc today and have been listening to it quite a few times, and I must say, I'm liking it a lot. This genre isn't my strong suit, so I can't really go into detail much about everything unfortunately. But here's my short list of thoughts:

1. The album has a consistant sound. I'm not saying the songs sound just like each other, just that it flows together real well, which is a good thing.
2. I love the production.
3. I love the drums.
4. The vocals fit perfectly with the music.
5. The artwork is fantastic.
6. The Art Of Death Infernal has been stuck in my head ever since the first time I've heard it.
7. If you don't get some serious label interest in this, something is wrong.
8. Oh, and you guys have the distinction of being the first death metal CD I own

I can't wait for a full-length now.

Pretty cool review, but:

Quote:
The thunderous kicks and bombastic toms are heavily triggered, and while that may be a deterrent for those who desire a more organic sound, they are not so overbearing as to take anything away from the music as a whole.
Didn't you guys say the drums weren't triggered and completely played or however you word it? Oh, and for the superstitious (not me), I was the 666 person to view that review on MetalReviews.

Also, you might send a demo to http://necrometal.com/ for a review.

they were played buy a human+ triggered then re-sampled + various studio magics .

the tone of the original drumset and heads was not something we desired. but someone did actually play the parts. no different than the majority of metal recordings done these days. If you want to hear what natural drums sound like listen to Death Breath's newest album.

Since I know pretty much nothing about drums, I'll take your word for it

funny how many people out there still think triggered means the drums were a machine.
