For The Life Of Me demo
Next up, FTLOM suffers immediately from sounding like it was recorded through muffled recording equipment (Id use technical terms, but likely get them wrong!). Though it does say it was done on a 4 track. Still, its songs that count. And theres 4 of them here.
Distortion overload, kind of semi-industrial music is what were talking about, that although its not entirely original isnt offensive. Im afraid Im lazy, and have the name Marilyn Manson running around my head throwing a tantrum. But thats not entirely or maybe even remotely accurate. Opening track, Running has the strongest sense of a hook running through it, This Day And Age sees the spartan industrial side shine through. Not bad. But need to sort out some better production. Sun T2V is an, um, interesting, instrumental which is kind of weird, but ultimately just runs the risk of passing you by. Even though it kinda runs for a while. Final track Facing The Fact eturns to the semi-industrial tone, adopting a fairly ominous groove, and ends a demo that has potential, but misses out on it somewhat.
