Hello everyone ;-)

The song DIVIDED BY LIES was written because of the fact
that in the last almost eighteen months of the pandemic,
most people around the world have been lied to and
deprived of their freedoms by their governments.
The attempt to divide people into two classes is
now the next chapter in a failed policy.
I hope you like the song, which was created entirely with BiaB 2021:

Listen to DIVIDED BY LIES

it came out of nowhere
and they made it so big
their true face now appeared
life now consisted only of fear (echo)

now there is
there is only one truth for all

and this truth
is enforced
by all means
to stay in control

hey you out there
please don't put up with everything
we cannot accept it now
to be divided by these liar kings

to lose a loved one
and no goodbye allowed
we will never forgive them again
they broke the laws and we cried in the rain (echo)

and that means
there is only one way out

be honest at last
you need no cash
but ONE folk
repeat it but loud

All the best and please stay healthy
Andi ;-)

Andi,

You get a LOT out of BIAB! A great driving Rock sound.

Good vocals. Good mix.

The cymbals are a little too prominent for my tastes. Dropping the high EQ would correct that. But, of course, that is a personal preference on my part. Some folks might like that abundant cymbal sound...

Thanks, Floyd.
I was surprised myself how well BiaB is suited for hard rock.
However, in most projects the weak point is the solo guitar and
often the rhythm guitar. But what the heck,
that's what guitarists are for ;-)
Thanks for your feedback
Andi

This is extremely well-produced considering you only used BiaB. That part I liked a lot!
The lyrics is your opinion... don't know if I agree with you there... but well... we are here for the music... smile

Hi Will.
Thanks for your feedback.
Yes, two of my former band members didn't
want to believe me that BiaB calculated the song.
It's so cool ;-)
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

HOT!! What an amazing demo of what this great software can do, Andi. Expertly crafted band, and maybe your 2 doubting bandmates are just worried about their jobs. hehe Oh, wait, you said "former." Keep 'em coming, man. I also poked around some of your other material, and enjoyed the ride. Hey, welcome to the forum!!

Hi Marty
You are really cool.
Thanks for your great feedback.
You are right. If the guys would still play in my band
they would have to work really hard not to be replaced by BiaB ;-))))
Many greetings
Nice to be here
Andi ;-)

Hello Nigel
Thanks for the great feedback
The singing I had honestly imagined something different
However, I had to realize that I could not sing the melody for the chorus at all ;-))))
So I had to improvise a little bit.
Thanks a lot
and many greetings
Andi ;-)

Love it. A song that speaks truth. I'm with you 100% on that.

Musically.... Pretty good hard rock out of BB.

Nice

Hello Scott
thanks for your feedback
I'm very happy that you like the song
Hard rock / Heavy Metal with 100% BiaB doesn't work for many songs.
But with Divided by Lies I succeeded in making the song
halfway believable.
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Andi,
Wow, yeah this song rocks!
Divided by Lies speaks the truth brother, so much truth.
Musically, it sounds to me as if you have blended The Scorpions with Nirvana. This is Big sound, BIG SOUND musically and lyrically!

Hello Bawb
Thanks for your great comment
Yes it is really bad and at least here in Germany
it is getting worse and worse. The song is more relevant than ever.
I made a video about it as well.
But I can only show that among friends, because here in Germany.
no second opinion on this subject is tolerated.
You have to imagine that. This is not North Korea, Russia or China.
This is really happening right here in Germany
and many other "free democratic" countries.
Many love greetings
Andi ;-)

Hello om
Thanks for your feedback
I did not find the volume of the cymbals to be too loud
I have to test this on several devices
Many greetings
