Andi,
I can not quite relate / grasp message, but musically fun. Solid arrangement. Cool grunge feel. Great job working with BIAB! Powerful. Thank you for sharing.

Hello Andi,

A great driving Rock sound!
The guitars and The drums are very nice.
I agree with Will.
This is extremely well-produced considering you only used BIAB.
Your passionate vocals are great.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

I'm in agreement with the comments made on the production. It's really a top notch arrangement and production. I'm a big fan of completing productions solely in BIAB. Many don't think commercial and pro quality productions can be achieved without use of a DAW. A quick listen to each year's PG Music release of demo's go a long way to dispel such myths. This production you've done does too. Good job.

Charlie

Hello Misha
I don't know which country you are from.
But maybe you are lucky and your government will leave you alone in the Corona crisis.
"My" government does not do that.
And the fact that my song is still as topical as it was months ago is starting to worry me...
But in any case, it's nice that you liked the song musically.
Thanks a lot
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Cool song. It sounds like a mix between Peter Frampton 70 lead guitar and Foo Fighters current day. Good production. Lyrics are good. Well done. And the band rocks too!

Andi, kick @ss rock and roll from BiaB, who would have thunk it! I believe you have set a new R&R bar here and it is very high!

Loved the song. Your rocking groove is fantastic. You vocal is excellent. But those lyrics took it over the top for me. I totally agree with you.

Loved it.

Project M,

WOW, does this POP out of the gate!!! That killer lead guitar in the intro--sweet! Great, great rock tune. One suggestion would be to bring "Liar Kings" into the title of the tune. It's a very nice phrase that can shine more in that regard. Totally rocking tune!! Great job on this!

All my best to you,

Deej

Hello Charlie
Thanks for the feedback.
I think that the possibilities at BiaB for really good hard rock/ heavy metal are very limited. Unfortunately
I have tried quite a few styles and sounds for Divided by Lies and found that many rock/metal sounds are not suitable for very good results.
Maybe there will be more good styles and sounds in the future.
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Sounds good!

I won't speak to the topic, but there are places where you play the pronoun game so quickly that I've got difficulty trying to figure out who you're addressing:

      be honest at last Who, me? Or the lying government?
      you need no cash Who, me? Or "you" in the abstract? Because I do need money. wink
      but ONE folk "ONE" folk instead of money?
      repeat it but loud Repeat what loud? "ONE Folk?"

Then again, I'm often easily confused by lyrics.

And there's a rule that rock songs must not be grammatically correct, right? laugh

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

Andi,
this rock really well. A really cool mix of the band.
The vocals sound a little over processed and a little essy.
The guitar solo is a bit loud when it begins but fits better when the band builds a bit more.
There could be some vocal pitch tuning to bring the whole song together better.

The narrative..I understand & I empathize but I am not so naive as to see any "way out" being offered in the song.
Sovereign Citizen/anti-vax/anti lock down activists in Australia have been using Twisted Sister's We're Not Gonna Take It as their rally tune despite the writer's expressed wishes that they not do so. They hope to wake up tomorrow and it be all over without having to do anything to make it so...me too but wishing doesn't make it so.

Terrific song, terrific mix, some work to do on the vocals.
ACE
