Description
Well this is the first song I have done in a while and the first hard rock song I've done in a long time, so enough with the outdoor stuff. This is wall-to-wall hardcore rock and roll. It is cold outside and the sky is grey and I needed to get some stuff out. I had to get some feeling back in the soul so here it is from the gut. So have a listen and I hope you enjoy, cause it felt good making it.

Slamming...and speeding!
Wow, man....pleasantly manic...got me driving on hyperspeed here..just
imagine how that would sound with a little buzz (i mean alcohol, you
guys). Guitar playing at sonic speed..hard to top that.. I dont think any
vocals or lyrics can catch up with this! Awesome mix of drums and
strings...what else can i say!

What a
fun jam! I love this high energy rockin' side of your playing. Interesting themes being played in here, kind of surf-y and psychedelic.

KILLA TONE BOLOGNA1
Love the double guitar tone! It has a sweet ZZ top vibe! Groovin! The only thing that bothered me where the emotionless drums! A different beat could totally set this off! The drums need more feel! Nice licks and rippage!

Dancing in my Chair !
My headphones fell off while I was doing the "bobble-head dance" in my chair. I imagine I will see a lot of "air guitars" being played along with this one ... good job Chak !

rrrrrip it
this shreds it. Way to get out whatever it was that was inside in a way that will undoubtably bring enjoyment to us suckers lucky enough to catch this wave. Love the half-step progressions. That's my favorite part. Sweet job.

Sssssmokin'!
Oh, man - that's fast.

It wouldn't have surprised me if your guitar caught on fire playing this. Or
your hand. Or just something! With a performance like that, something
MUST catch fire!

Now... where are my matches...?

Awesome!

RawKing!
"It is cold outside and the sky is grey and I needed to get some stuff
out" -- I like that reason for doing this. Full of energy. Melts glaciers
and frozen limbs.

good bad and... whooosh!
Crank it up and let it loose... this is a great piece of fast-action rock, love
the adrenaline-sidewinder-vibe this has. I actually did *not* particularly
care for the *sound* of the guitars that start it off, they're too tinny and
raspy sounding for me, I prefer a little rounder sound with a little less
distortion, but that's just me. The lead guitar that comes in from time to
time sounds great. And overall, your writing and playing is awesome...
love the tune and the energy in it.
ttfn,
Drakonis

heavy surf?
up beat, got me bouncing. nice playing. reminds me of a hard rock version of that one surfing song with no words we always listened two in first grade. the guitar has good rhythem so it's not just one long solo. the solo seems maybe a little too loud. i think it might sound cool with a more bluesy feel and some low tones. in the 2nd solo thing, there was alot of bending, i'd like to hear one of the bends really dragged out. there were some long bengs, but they seemed to stop a little short and a nice long bend would capture the soul of the listeneri. once again a blues sound would be awsome to hear. amazing playing. man, these last two tracks making me realize how much catching up on my guitar work i need to do.

TURN IT UP
Like WAY WAY WAY WAY up!!

This song is a sweet adreniline pumper that moves really fast and rocks really hard. The world could definitly use more stuff like this. I especially like the speed of the guitars and the way it seems almost, but not quite, like a really long solo. The drums need a little momement.

Awesome Job!

Rockin' to the core
This is some hot schtuff! The overall mix is sort of treble-heavy, but the intensity of the song burns through with no problem whatsoever. Lord almighty - the guitar monsters are ALIVE!

Smokin'!
If those don't get your blood pumpin', you've got issues. This is a seriously rockin' track! You did a great job with the drums, making them keep up with your bass and guitar playing - you're a monster! My only comment towards production would be that it seems a little treble-y, the mids and lows could really be brought up to give this track some serious heavy. Whoever sings this has got HUGE shoes to fill - nice job!

What a jam
So much adrenalin I thought I was gonna pass out from the rush. This just
kicks ass in so many ways... man- the blood is really pumping... if I were
driving there would be a speeding ticket in my future. Seriously, this is
one of the best straight up guitar jams I've heard here. Wicked awesome!

excellent
thx to the mikki interview for turning me onto your great music. beck
is one my all time fav's as well. lots of passion here, i think it helps that
its cold and gray outside as i listen to it. i'd be curious as to the drums.
they sound real time here. one small thing, i thought the bass could be
a wee bit more up front in the mix. otherwise an excellent rock tune
