This song rocks!!! The vocals might not, but the song does. :P I have honestly never tried to write anything like this... music wise. This is probably the hardest rock song I've written... not hardest difficulty... though possibly that too (considering that the chorus is super high for me to sing)... but rockin hard... hard rock music... eh, you know what I mean. :P It's heavy on guitars and bass! I wrote the vocals high so I would have to sort of scream or yell them out over the loud guitars. :) Yea, that's REALLY high for me to sing with my natural voice... and this is a Doovie Brothers song... www.myspace.com/thedooviebros Basically, I voice act and sing at the same time as these guys... usually, only 2 sing... sometimes 3 and occassionally 4. Phil Marshall is the guy I'm voice acting as in this song and he does the lead vocals... basically, his singing voice is my natural singing voice, only with more of an accent... Australian... or I try to make it that... I'm not good with Australian accents though. :P
And yea, the bridge does make this song sort Christian. If you don't like it, at least give this message a thought... if you a Christian or non-Christian (especially).
And again, it is me singing! And it is VERY HIGH for me to sing! I was pushing the limits of what I thought was the highest notes I could sing. Turned out decent... not great, but good enough... however, I had a WHOLE lot of pitch corrections and things to work on with the vocals in the choruses. :P Anyway, hope you like the song... I REALLY got a kick out of playing it... :D But seriously, listen to this message and think about it... let it sink in. :P
The pictures were drawn by me as well...
