Straight edge is great. Cold is too. Reminds me of who by fire by Leonard Cohen for some reason. Thanks for yr review of Medicine head. I like yr acclectic style. Look forward to keeping an eye on yr stuff. ICB

3 new songs for you peeps to fill yr ears with. Since people seem to like my mellow side more I'm anxious to know what you think.
Binding Love Spell - Low life Scum- Electric arms and legs.

Happy listening... (I hope!?)

Low Life Scum is a nice, slow track. Would be a good album ender, I think.

Great lyrics in Electric Arms and Legs.

Binding Love Spell I couldn't find, but I'm looking forward to hearing it!

Hi Ian
Really liking Low life and electric, can't listen to Binding as its not on your list!!!
Really like the clean use of the chords you'd usually hear heavily distorted in a deftones style song - strangely they work well with the softer sung vocal, who'dve thunk it; you obviously LOL 5 stars from me.

Thanks for the positive review. Yr the first person to get my 1 st person 3 rd person he I me he thing. It's nearly always a round a bout way of deflecting the listener from the fact that it's nearly always "I" or " me" that I'm talking about. Hope you can check out a couple more. I think you'd like some of them. Ian c bishop

Great Job, son! All three are Beautiful, but Fairy Tales is the ultimate heartbreaker. Your voice is perfect for mournful soulful tunes.


Adam Maxfield posted over 30 days ago


Will do when I'm next off work - which ones are they??


Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago


Should be the first three. Everything goes. Fairy tales. Big horse ( it's yr birthday) and Diary of a lost girl. Hope you like some of them. When you record the vocals for yr track try setting a boomed mic in a position that means you can record them laying flat on yr back. It flattens out yr vocal coards


Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago


Ok, first 4 songs. As I was saying.. It flattens out yr vocal chords and gives you a naturally raspy sound. So you can sing softer which means you can effect a scream differently than you would live. By just singing through a closed throat into a mic you can almost 'pretend' to scream. I'm not a fan of the baritone growl personally, but at least you can try a few things out and see what flies! Look forward to hearing more of yr stuff.


Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago


Give 'white pony' or 'around the fur' by the DefTones a reference for a softly sung / but really effective shredding vocal sound. plus they use a ton of vocal compression. Also, you could try double tracking yr lead vocal with another identical, but sung separately lead vox. That nearly always sounds great. I don't double track my vocal personally but a lot of great bands do.


Adam Maxfield posted over 30 days ago


I like the idea of lying down - they used to say at work that I was so laid back I was horizontal!! I did double track for a while at a studio I used (check out w.d.y.w.m.t.b and walk away, your love) but wasn't totally convinced - so now I copy the vocal and add different comp/eq/rev to add a bit of thickness. Got a few suggestions from different perspectives so gonna have fun trying it all out - just as long as my kids don't stand there screaming at me when I'm trying to sing!!!


Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago to Adam Maxfield


I was talking about yr song hey god btw. Listening to yr other work like 17 and so on, you've got a good overdriven gtr sound going on. Hey god would sound great with more of that and less compressed metal fx I reckon.

   
 
Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago to Adam Maxfield


The instrumentation is good. The guitar sound is a bit too "new metal" sometimes though. But I'm from the old school so what do I know? It's a good arrangement and I like the vocal melody ok but it could use some work. Try adding some more harmonies. That always helps a track. Good job tho. Like it! Check out "this heart" or " cold cold heart" on my profile page if you wanna hear where I'm coming from with the guitar sound thing.

Thanks Ian, appreciate it - and I will check out those tracks.


Adam Maxfield posted over 30 days ago


Oh and I'm old school metal too, but sometimes you have to embrace the nu LOL


Adam Maxfield posted over 30 days ago


Checked out those 2 tracks and see what you mean. Cool sound, kinda feels like late 80's sleaze rock with british punk rock thrown in for good measure - if you kno what I mean...


Ian C Bishop posted over 30 days ago


I know what you mean and I love yr take on the songs. I guess you can't hide yr roots.
