    Hey guys! For those who remember my interview with jonalba, I mentioned I was coming up with a new band. We got the first video released today, so I wanted to share it with all of you! Hope you all like it, and I'll keep posting all the new stuff here!

    Nice! Love the sound of the Spanish lyrics (unfortunately understand very little:)

    Also: Beautiful chorus!

    Great main lick and nice variety of rhythms in verses, bridge and chorus. I like the second, driving, chorus best.
    Bit of a Foo Fighters vibe.

    BTW: where's the solo?? The song screams for it!

    Great sound on that Mati. Love the guitar work particularly on the chorus. Drumming has a good feel to it, solid and in the pocket. Left me wanting to hear more. Did you produce?

    Thanks all!

    I wrote the song at a particulary difficult time in my life when too much shit happened to me. So the song, verse and bridges are talking about how life throws shit at you, and then in the chorus, its something along the lines of ''but its gonna get better'' basically.

    Conecta El Sol could be translated to Connect The Sun, or Plug The Sun I guess , lol.. its basically a metaphor to ''turn the lights on' and 'its gonna get better'

    Thanks! Yeah, definitely a Foo Fighters vibe, I even mentioned so in the interview with jon.

    Haha, its a short song, no room for a solo. But rest assured, the rest is coming and there is plenty of guitar work!

    Thanks! Yep, I produced it all, and mixed the audio.

    More to come!

    Holy hell, man. That was a fantastic track. Also, it's like nothing I've ever even heard before, both in songwriting and the playing style. The drums are in overdrive, and the ride cymbal kills it. That guitar riff? I feel like I'm falling down a mountain listening to this song, but then you've got this more melodic, slower chorus.

    To you and the rest of the band - keep up the great work!

    Oh, now it makes more sense, lol (tried to understand it by using Google translate XD)

    All I can say is that the chorus really transports that feeling, fantastic job!

    Nice!

    How about changing the name to Franco. That would be a right fit.

    It would resonate with the Spanish speaking audience!

    Guitars sound a bit like:



    I'd advise lo let go of the clearly underbudgeted cheesy videos, though. It doesn´t do the song any favor and nobody really cares about the story. What a lot of bands are doing now are "lyrics videos" and the results are better. But hey, good job, I respect anyone who comes up with their own material.

    That was fun, even after the 6th listen. Good show, Mati. I love the tone you dialed in for this. The vocal delivery compliments the track perfectly.

    Yup, the riffs are similar! I had never heard that song before honestly. But it's a common thing on guitar. Several songs are similar to it.

    Amazing guitar work there! Do you guys think of recording some music in english as well? I mean for a broader audience. Congrats, very well produced!
  12.  
    I don't think so. That was the idea behind 42 Decibel, and I think it distances the band with the local crowd, which is where we play and live most of the time.

    42 Decibel still active?

    Man, I'm REALLY loving this stuff. I like this a bit more than the original track you posted - it shows off your guitar skills a lot more and it's also just a longer song. Your singer has a great voice, too, being able to pull off these melodic verses without losing that gruffness.

    It's amazing what up and coming bands can do these days when it comes to production and distribution. You've got your material, a skilled producer that's actually in the band, and you don't have to sign a record deal which requires a good deal of faith from the company and probably a lot more money, too. Now, you can just record your stuff, produce it however you want, and put it up on youtube or whatever other website.

    Seriously - congrats on another fantastic song and not sounding like an ACDC clone.

    Yup, they are about to release a new album this year. They got a new bass player (not as good as the previous one I've heard...)

    I'm truly happy that you like it! The thing with being independent, is that yes, I can do the video, post it and share it, but the range of people that are going to see it are just limited to my friends or sites like this one where I go and post it. Labels put you everywhere and give you the opportunity to be seen by a lot of people.

    I don't know how to let you know haha... if the thread goes dormant for a few days and then it comes back, its probably cause I posted a new song haha... we have more videos coming so stay alert! I also noticed I can't edit old posts anymore, so I can't add the videos to the original post

    Very good and very professional stuff ! You surely can compete with any modern rock band. And keep the spanish vocals, that makes it more special and unique ! You don´t need english vocals, there are more than enough bands doing that. There was a band called "Heroes del Silencio" selling more than 500000 albums in Germany about 30 years ago, although singing in spanish (i never liked them though, but anyway...), so you definitely don´t need english vocals.
    Keep going !

    Thanks guys! Really appreciate it!

    Some nice meaty riffin' and lickin' going on.
    And a mature sounding solo. Great guitar tone overall.

    In a very far distance i hear the breakdown of Honey Roll in this breakdown lol.

    haha yeah, that kept coming up for me in the recent days, and a couple of friends sent it to me, aswell. I registered the name so there will be no legal problem. Those guys are probably dead by now!

    Thanks a lot!! Yeah, I didn't think about it, but there is that drum stop and crash hits with the E chords in it!

    Really enjoyed those two songs! Well done mate!
    The second one had a modern day Manic Street Preachers feel to it for me, and the vocals do have that James Dean Bradfield vibe to them. Not to say you don't have your own sound though.

    Looking forward to some more!

    Really enjoying these Mati. Keep up the good work mate!!

    haha, cool! To be honest I don't listen to MSP. I probably would have never heard of them but my brother used to like them years ago. Only song I remember by them is Motorcycle Emptyness, which was a bit annoying to me at the time, lol

    A little less catchy as Conecto El Sol, but the best guitar work so far. That bridge from 2:28 tot 2:40 is very tasty. The solo kills.
    Whole song has a bit of a Judas Priest vibe

    How long did that music video take?

    Great track - those high tension chords are my favorite parts. Lots of tasty guitar work as Thankass said
