Re: Progressive metal from Finland!
To me it's well recorded and it's a cool song but there are 2 things which will keep me away from buying your music.
1- It sounds too much like something from Dream Theater,if I wanted to listen to DT I'd not buy your album but a DT album,lack of personality.
2- Song doesn't have a melody which keeps all parts sounding like a whole song,they sound like different parts from different songs glued together OR a middle section of a DT song.It doesn't matter if the listener starts listening in the middle or in the beginning.
Those 2 things are what I always avoid from prog bands.No matter how crazy or weird some DT songs parts are,they always find a way(melody) to make them sound as a whole song and not just different parts.
I see great potential in your band but still lack of personality TO ME is a major problem cause nobody(well at least me) wants to hear a clone or a band that sounds too close to another band.
How to avoid that?
Well you guys have to find your own way of expression and avoid playing licks or things other bands already do,very difficult cause we all sometimes sound like our idols but being UNIQUE is part of having talent.
