Macedonia is the new black :lol:

Don't think there's anything wrong with the composition, the sounds however I don't like, overall it sounds too modern for me(sounding modern doesn't always matter and it's more a question of the overall vibe as to whether it makes a difference or not...or something along those lines haha). Not quite special enough to leave a lasting impression. Perhaps the vocalist doesn't have enough grit in her voice, too 'clean'.

Do you ever sleep? :lol:

Seriously, apart from the keyboard, which is used very sparingly, I don't hear anything else "modern". The production is thin of course and has a lot to be desired, but this is a demo after all...

Sleeping rhythm is a bit messed up at the moment :wink:

Could just be me but the guitar sound they have chosen, drums, and the sound of the vocalist, these things bring modern times to mind.

The drums sound terrible, not modern though. I think of horrible groove produced guitars when I think of 'modern' sounds.

It's not that bad. But the song itself just doesn't stand out from the typical Greek epic bands and offers little in the form of the band's identity. The only thing that could stand out is the female vocals, but she just mimics the typical male vocals of the style.

Is this a new band? If so, this thread belongs to Victim Of Time.

No, it is not a new band. in fact the band is on hiatus right now. They are called Phoenix Reign and hail from New York. Although most of the band members obviously have Greek ancestry.

The good old US 'pride' in their roots, fucking 'Italians' that can't speak a word of Italian, Irirsh that don't know anything but 'defending' their 'heritage'... it's usually the same across the board, same with African-Americans. Why don't they all move the fuck back to where they 'came from' if it's so important. They ALL make me sick.

not too bad, but the drums are recorded/mixed really badly, or maybe untuned, but they don't sound right.

i had heard their CD some time ago, but i found it below average.

I guess this is a new song, right???

Hard to explain to someone not Greek, but its funny (and something else, but ok...) to listen to "Μακεδονια Ξακουστη" as a Metal song...
