Lyrics
GREED

Pioneer, you built the castle,
Your throne of gold, looking down on us.
Currency, is all you worship,
you sold your soul, but still don't have enough.

Take all you can, the world is just for you,
Greed is good, we'll suffer at your hand.
Take all the land, build over our bones,
You'll kill us all when you carry out your plan.

Empty words, no ounce of feeling,
all for yourself, no thought to us.
Insincere, your empty greeting,
You don't know me, you think you've earned my trust.

A great
intro into a very cool tune! The intro guitar with the echo is a cool touch.

Sort of an epic theme intro. Nicely done!

Greed
Really like the opening, Adam. And then it develops into a very nicely textured rocker. Big sound. I like the lead tone over the crunchy power chords and you do a fine job of the vocals. I like! Thanks, Peter.

Isn't that the truth
I really like the effects on the guitars and how the tone breaks up nicely. The drums have a driving feel and the vocal melody sits well with the music. Digging the lyrics and enjoyed the listen.

Catchy!
I'm also impressed by your mix. Do you really play all the instruments?! Drums sound like they're recorded live - do you have a home studio with everything set up to record? Nice job, really!

Thank you
I'm very happy with the mix. I play all the guitar parts, I have done the bass using a midi keyboard. The drums are just loops, but I have added effects to try and give them a live sound. I'd love to play all the instruments for real, but sadly, I can't!
