that would be correct. altho i wouldn't necessarily consider us a death metal band.

Re: My Band(Called To Arms) and our new EP

actually, to back up that statement, maybe ill post some of the other tracks from the album on our myspace/purevolume this week because we have some extended parts using the clean channel with piano, some old school style solos etc. [edit actually our label has another song that has a bit of a different sound overall (its got piano and solo etc) at www.myspace.com/tragicherorecords]

i think the screaming vocals is what lumps us into the 'death metal' category for a lot of people tho.

the next album we are working on writing now is a lot more progressive. Think of a mix of Opeth, Mars Volta, Between the Buried and Me, with some other influences like Brian May of Queen thrown in.

thanks again to those who listened!

Re: My Band(Called To Arms) and our new EP

not my piece of cake, but the guitar sounds really good and fat. you could add even a little more in the bass section. also even though not my kind of music, I find the edges of the guitar playing very well done, but sometimes the drums seems to be just a tad "off", donno if that is intentional as I do not listen to much music like this, but sounded a little weird for me.

appreciate the guitar compliments.

and yea at certain points (a few parts in the beginning of 'the last lament') the drums are purposely on a slightly different beat but still in time with the guitar. its just something technical we like to do once in awhile because (at least for us) it is challenging to pull off.

We uploaded 2 more songs for stream from the EP.

"The Sixth Hour" has an extended clean part with piano and also has a guitar solo at the end of the song.

"The Solace" is pretty much just straight up metal.
