"Nurse Edna"

"Man makes a song. Band must tell man how the song is like. Six opinions they must give. No more, no less. Six, and we are done. "
- Jaqen H’ghar (freely quoted)

But seriously, enough with Game of Thrones- references. It´s time for my favourite part of making music in a band: THE FEEDBACK SECTION! Here, no flesh shall be spared. Here, the white walkers will haunt you and the winter is...oops, sorry. I seemingly did it again.
Anyway, I had feedback from one member at phone and three via email. The one in phone liked it. The rest...well, draw your own conclusions.

"This kinda song! So, at last- first totally finished song is ready! 
A bit like the first two albums clashing with some cartoonesque evilness. Note that Autopsy- riff in the middle of the song! I´m open to ideas- I could easily record this version but I´ll be glad to get some feedback and ideas how to make it better from you guys.
What do you think?"

"Dude, you have pretty much got the worst possible guitarsound into that demo, hehehe :D

I´m kinda puzzled, I don´t know why, might be because of it´s morning and my head´s a bit messy still but somehow that seemed to be a bit "scattered", quite many of those open chords and stops allaround....I´m gonna make some coffee, have a few cigarettes and will give it another spin :D I´m not trying to be an ass, it´s just an opinion :)"

"Quite refreshing!
This sounds like Burton/ Elfman are mangling a movie score for Beetlejuice, where Baldwin has already killed in the first possible scene and Betelgeuse is banging Geena up the pooper on a plastic grass- mat.
The vocal parts are c-c-c-lear for me. I assume we´ll hear some annoying screeching and hickuping coming up?"

"I can´t get anything out of this. It has a couple of good melodies, which work, but otherwise I don´t like this at all. It reminds me of some platform- videogamemusic, as it feels like it´s not structured at all but different and separate themes are just changing places. And the fast guitarpicking in the start is what I hate the most...If I think I´m supposed to play this live I don´t know what to think and how to be at the stage. To be honest, I wouldn´t want this to the album like it is now."

I..... need...... a...... fucking.......... beer.................NOW.
