This "No Halls in the Sky" chorus won't leave my head for a while I think. :D

No way! Haha! Seems as if you're aware of the fact that the last gig we did as Epic Irae was as support to Union Carbide Productions (in 1991)?

Anyway, you should look bit to the (south-) east. (ie it's not Manowar either)

Figured out (slightly) how to make a myspace page yesterday. Uploaded some old (= ten years old) demo tracks of mine. Don't ask me why, for the very bored maybe...

Im in a new band, comprised of members of punk and metal bands I was in for years (Deception Of Faith, Hell Battallion, Strychnine Saviors, etc). 2 demos released and our debut EP coming soon. Lots of influence from old punk, old thrash metal, black metal, crust punk, etc infused in a really awesome way.

"I gotta say, I haven't heard this kind of raw punk/thrash blend since the 80's! And y'all probably weren't even born when this stuff was getting going!" - ROB WILLINGHAM of MILITIA on THE D-GEN'S.

"The tunes sound cool! Lookin forward to hearing the ole' skool brought new skool from you dudes! Keep me posted..." - JIM DOFKA on THE D-GEN'S

Let me know what you guys think of the tracks. Impending Doom, The Feeding, and Slain By Maryjane are all from the upcoming EP "GODS OF THE GODLESS". Eva and Reincarnation are from the selftitled Live Demo (limited to 200 copies, sold out). Vocals and bass coming very shortly. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

In a way I might not be the ideal person to comment since I'm not the biggest fan of punk or thrash, but I've listened to my fair share of both, and have an above average thrash collection anyway. Ok, it's a releatively young band, and it's always easier for a listener to shoot things down after a few seconds, which can be really destructive/annoying considering all the time the musicians have put into creating something - having said that I can't pretend I think any of it sounds good, I listened to all the tracks and the same problems are prevalent throughout; the tuning is often completely off, the band sounds like everything is about to fall apart at any moment; which comes from the drums not keeping time very well and overall being very sloppy and out of control, and despite the songs being quite short, due to the aforementioned problems they feel like they're dragging on. But, with some more work maybe you guys can get it together.

I actually liked the slightly-out-of-tune guitars the most. Mostly. They have that crazy, wild sound of many an old SoAm act. The more rockin' tunes, i.e. "Slain By Maryjane" and "Reincarnation" > the rest, but I'd like to hear the finished versions w/ bass & vocals before final judgement...

Oh and the out of tune guitars were not intentional its just we had to relocate to the other side of th county and just put up smoe live takes so we had something up instead of taking forever. The new ones are infinitely better.

Listening.

I like the riffs of 'Reincarnation', but the solos at the end are unbearably out of tune....sorry. 'Impending Doom', was harder to listen to, even the bass is out of tune with the rest of the instruments, and the out of tune solos, ummm, really hard to sit through, again with the drumming it sounds as if things could fall apart at any time. These things weren't as evident on 'Eva'. I think you guys should try make sure each of the instruments are in tune WITH EACH OTHER before recording anything, are you using separate makes of tuners or what? Or not re-tuning the instruments before recording? You should really address thagt problem because it makes it sound like you don't know what you're doing, though you can still hear that most of you can play.
