Trying with the labels again

Just wanted to let you know that I'm going to send out a couple of songs to different labels this week. The tracks I'm going to put on the demo are: Borders of the Mind, A New Meaning and Sometime Soon - all of which can be found on this site. Hopefully this could mean that you get to listen to the songs with a proper recording eventually. But, who knows?

New track: Borders of the Mind

I've finally managed to finish another song. I'm ridiculously pleased with it and you can download it here: Borders of the Mind. The server is rather slow, but I urge you to be patient.

Right now I'm listening a lot to Lamb of God, Chimaira and metal of that kind. I usually tend to dismiss growlers but the music compensates. Any tips of bands I might have missed due to this vocal style are appreciated. Or is it so that LoG and Chimaira are the best in their genre?

What are you lookin for ...

in a band? When I find a new interesting group it's mostly because they do something that I haven't heard before, be it vocally or musically. However, the new bands I like still have to write songs with segments that stick, melodies I can recognize and be able to play their instruments in a way that stretches what's metal.

Apart from that I appreciate a strand of honesty - something that tells me this group does this, not because they want to make money but because they have something to tell or express. Is it just me, or have groups like that become more rare in the last couple of years? If so, why?
