Re: Screaming Into The Void

Screaming Into the Void - Robyn Mackenzie Screaming into the void Call it revolution, call it noise Not like we got a choice You brought us down, down, down Screaming into the dark Your only purpose is to tear apart Everything that has a heart You tore us to the ground But it's never enough, you rou...

Re: Aren't we all just (Screaming Into The Void prefight)

I didn't get called in for extra hours but I did finally have an idea at 11 o' clock last night when my wife was sleeping, so vocals had to wait until after work today. Fingers crossed that it gets accepted even if it is quite a few hours late.

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

Balls to Monte - This is killer. I enjoy the imagery in the lyrics and the harmonies on "fine art" are brilliant. I really dig your sound. Future Boy - Loving the juxtaposition of the cheery synths and beat with the dark lyrics. I like the simple melody--your vocals are top notch. I also really like...

Re: How It Comes Apart

A whisper in the winter air The sins of man are all laid bare You say you're not afraid to die Someone else, a sacrifice Don't pretend it's over When fear and greediness are lovers You see the symptoms and the signs They say don't read between the lines And I guess it's all a sham anyway We blindly ...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Lichen Throat - This reminds me of a song I used to listen to in college a lot. I can't remember what it was, but I liked the sound of it, and I like the sound of this too. Really good imagery in the lyrics. Hot Pink Halo - Love those slideys in the violin! The dissonance works really well for the s...

Re: Your music creation history

90's-2001: I was a kid. Started playing violin and piano and wrote a lot of silly songs and parodies. 2002: Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" came out and I got hooked on the riff and played it over and over. I decided I wanted to write pop songs and wrote one about my boyfriend who I thought was...

In! No spooky sounds this time, just lots of distortion and feedback and crashy drums.

Re: Hold your breath for (The Smoke Is Rolling In reviews)

Lichen Throat - I like the intro and the beat. The synths are an interesting touch, and the vocals remind me a little bit of Television. Cool lyrics too. Paco del Stinko - Love the wah effect. This has a real 70's feel to it, but like, mixed with 90's grunge, which I love. Really good drums. Glenn C...

Re: If we make it (Better Luck Next Year reviews)

There are so many good songs this fight it's hard to choose! Reviews are a bit short this time, everybody did a great job. ----- Tomdg - I like the understated feel to the arrangement and the bassline is great. Like The Clash without drums. Very nice. Future Boy - This is lovely. Has a theatrical el...
