Faelin. 2007.


You don’t care how it feels
You don’t care what’s at stake

You just need me to take your blame
You just need me to save your face

You don’t know what’s for real.

I’m cracking through your fault lines
I’m cutting through your lifeline.

You can’t blame me
You can’t break me
You don’t know me
You won’t deface me

I don’t care how you feel
I don’t care about your claims

you prey on people like a meal
my life is not for you to steal

you don’t know what’s for real

you think you’ve got it made
but I don’t need to play your games

before you lay waste to your name
you need to count the cost you’ll pay
you can't tell me you're real
you can't tell me how to feel

You can’t blame me
You can’t break me
You don’t know me
You won’t deface me
solo
You can’t blame me
You can’t break me
You don’t know me
You won’t deface me

Another rocking song from Allen and Jason.
The rhythm guitar riff sounds like two or three of Allen's songs, but it's Jason playing. Hmm. Jason I think Allen has been influencing you big time. You're getting much better. I think Allen must have secretly replaced all of your guitar parts with his own, lol.

Lyrically this song makes me think of my shop's daytime supervisor, who was the reason I volunteered (and fortunately was accepted) for night shift. He's one of those assholes who just wants to f*** with me and make my life hell, but I'm learning to completely avoid him so he can't bother me. But my rage is still there every time I think about him.

thanks... i think :)
it's really just my "growl-on" song. i did re-record it adding a light-pinch to a few notes and adding a new bridge and shuffling around the old bridge. But the guitar and setting I used are the same.
but to have some say that my playing sounds like Allen's is alway a compliment. And, yes, Allen has been a HUGE influence on me. Mostly in that I send him something and he'll say "add this" or "adjust that". the biggest part is in the drums. He really challenges me there. I spent 10 HOURS on these drums. I think he is making me obsessive!

nice
good metal fun right here.
musichead said 4458 days ago (June 7th, 2007)
yes
I really like this song. I just didnt care for the layered singing at times.
The guitar work is great.. so is the bass!!! I think this song would sound great with one singer..This is just a personal reason I think..but all in all a great tune.!! Like the mix !!

You guys blow me away. This is sensational. Excellent playing all around. I have never been much of a rock guitarist and when I hear such talented playing I am full of admiration..... ok envy as well. Singing is out of this world. Great song .... the melody is perfect!!!! Well done!

you are very kind, my brother
you know, it humbles me to think that there are some serious musicians on this site, with varied and differing levels of experience, musical tastes, styles, and talent. yet, it seems, for all that, there is some serious comraderie amongst the vast majority on this site.. i for one think your playing is stellar, and if i had the time and the inclination, i would strive to play very much like you. thank you for the kind words, encouragements, and all the rest...

Most impressive guys!
The vocals remind me of "Again" by alice in chains, perhaps it's the harmonies? This is quite different then what I've been hearing from the main stream as well. Uniqueness is a wondrous feet to accomplish in this day and age. You all demonstrate vast talent and blend well together. Thanks for sharing.

yeah, layne........
when i did the vocals and lead guitar for jason's song, i tried to give it that seattle rock sound. i used heavy dirty tones, my jazz neck position pickup, and a bass wah for the main body solos. then my jeff beck tail pickup and a standard wah for the main lead. the vocals were an homage to the staley/ cantrell sound, using 3 part off key harmonies with a dirty lead track. thanks for coming by and having a headbang with us!!

Honestly...
...I am no fan of the genre. Nevertheless, this is pretty good stuff. I'm especially impressed by the vocal harmonies. Great sound on that bass and the lead soloing is over the top. Way to go guys!

Be well!

thak you sir amagi!
the vocals and lead are compliments of Allen. he really dug into the "seattle sound" to give this song some much needed dirtiness!
the bass is (shh... don't tell) just a cleverly strung together series of heavily cut up loops. they took me quite a while to program just right, then a bit longer to add effects and stuff to give a "grind" quality. i think it gives a nice balance to the brutality of the rhythm guitar and dirty whammy filled lead stuff.
thanks for listening and stepping away from your "comfort zone".
we'll make a "metal head" of you yet!

Hey!
Kudos on splicing and tweaking the bass-loops. You had me fooled! But you're gonna have to break down and shell out the dough for a real bass Jason. You'll be much happier afterwards (although a tad broker!).

wow
The opening vocal line is sooo freakin' killer in a layered Layne Staley type of way. Allen, you are showing a lot of different influences on the vocals. It's weird because it doesn't all work for me (the Sebby Bach parts), but the parts that do are just friggin' killer. KILLER.

Just a fun song overall with a lot of energy and some catchy changes.
