Hi all,

Been travelling again for quite a while, which has kept me away from the forum,
but back now long enough to rush out this offering.
This started out as a demo in Realband, but eventually all the Realtracks got replaced
as I added my own guitar parts. The vocals were tracked-up in PowerTracks and the whole
thing was mixed and mastered in Harrison Mixbus 32C v.5.
It might not be suitable for persons of a nervous disposition!

THE CREATURE
Around this time in the night
I get this feeling that something ain't right
There's no stars, there's no moon
Just this darkness that fills up the room
There's no sound anywhere
I can't see it but I know there's something there

I wanna move, I wanna run
I wanna reach out and pick up my gun
I wanna call, I wanna shout
I wanna scream but there's no sound comes out
It's just not safe anywhere
I don't know what it is, but I know there's something there

Every night
It's just the same
A voice from out the dark
Keeps on calling out my name

A cold sweat, I'm cold and damp
I try to hit the switch to turn on the lamp
The lamp lights, there's nothing there
Just a deafening silence that's hanging in the air
I turn off the light, it's just the same
The creature's back and it's calling out my name
There's something there and it's calling out my name

AS ever, many thanks to all those who have time to give it a listen.

I love this ROG!!! You've really created a mood with the music and the lyrics.....I'm feeling nervous already! All of the tracks, and particularly the vocals, sound really, really good! Certainly belongs on the Best of ROG album (first or last track on one side or the other)!. WONDERFUL!!! Take care. Greg

ROG,
Danger with some funky guitars - I can feel that Stranger Things monster getting closer!
Everything gels on this - lyrics, backtrack, lead guitar and that scared feeling in your vocal.
Really good.

Nicely done - well played and composed. Were the drums programmed via midi?
Atmospheric & bluesy - nice change at the bridge.

Hey, welcome back and what a song for the re-entry!

That intro grabbed us from the get go...cool guitar (and that which follows).

Love that super contrasting Beatles like bridge.

Super cool lyric that is absolutely nailed with the great vocal.

Getting a bit of Jeff Lynne and The Traveling Wilburys ... which for us is a very good thing!

FUN!

Cool tune..... things that go bump in the night.

To overcome that fear, you must become the night.

I enjoyed this. Nice work.....yep

And it's not even Halloween!!
Great track, Rog.
The 'feel' takes me back to the 60's heavy Rockers we used to do.
Great vocal and superb tracks.
Loved the 'nod' to Space Oddity in the short bridge.
Welcome back
Ian

ROG,

A great listen. A great overall sound. Cool song.

Always like your vocals! (and they fit this groove so well).

Terrific mix. Everything tucked in nicely where it needs to be. Cohesive.

Enjoyed.

I really like the string lines in the background.
The dynamics of this go from strut to Robert Wyatt style confessionals.
Your voice is wonderful - characterful and in tune.
Top shelf.

Nice. Love the guitar work. Intriguing variation of beat and mood. Atmospheric.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

What a tune - I'm getting some 70's folk rock vibes with this one. It flows great, and I love the groove here. Nicely atmospheric, and it blends with the catchiness well. The kind of song I'd imagine sounding unreal live.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Robert. That scared vocal is just my usual lack of confidence in my singing!
Many thanks for the listen and kind words.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Strong and scary story, that hypnotic groove adds the necessary thrill. That bridge part is very nice, psychedelic. Nice chording and guitar playing. Noel and Liam came to my mind but this is way better. I hope that creature won't show up here wink
