    1. Isles
    2. Skye

    I just finished listening to the EP. It is really cool and not what I expected at all. The lead playing is ace and so is the clean playing.

    Sometimes the Dejent riffs seem like they don't fit in with the overall vibe of the very melodic leads.

    Doing the whole thing in two weeks is really impressive with such high quality of music too.

    Digging the hell out of this!!! Really does remind me of Periphery/Bulb type music. The guitars have a really nice twang to em. Care to share some info?

    Also, record more stuff now! haha

    Quality music, man! Keep up! I can hear the influence of Piotrek Gruzka and AAL. This is some of the best music I enjoyed lately. Too bad I'm broke and can't send some cash over, you deserve it!

    Thanks dude! :D

    Really glad you dig it man! I'm trying to find the right balance in terms of my influences and while I do use djent riffs, I'm trying to make them melodic in their own right. Anyhow, thanks man :)

    Well, I use my strat on four of the tracks so you get a load of twang from there. I use the same tone for my 7 string as well and you can get a nice djenty tone with that as well.

    Here are some pics of my setup

    Distorted tone: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39302626/Signal Chain 2.jpg
    Clean tone: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39302626/Signal Chain Clean.jpg

    (I use the same post-processing on the distorted guitar tracks as the clean)

    Hope it didn't disappoint man! Thanks for downloading!

    No worries man, my main intention is for people to have it for free! I'm really glad you like the EP man. And I love Cosmogenesis, one of my favourite albums and of course, Tosin is an alien from another planet with his mad guitar skills.

    Dude, tell me you're into Guthrie Govan...this reeks of him and I love it! Just listening to Skye on your Soundcloud page.

    I love Guthrie, although my playing is about a million miles away from his and I'd have to practice about 25 hours a day just to get anywhere near as good as he is! I'm glad you spotted that influence, post people go straight for the djent bands! :D

    Thank you so much man, glad you like it!
