Oh  well in this band  not  really , past bands there is ,    here is one , a show I was drivng to with my friend with me ,  my guitar was in the trunk , we went over a bridge , and the back of the trunk popped open , my guitar went sliding down the street ,  in the case,  lol


That's a pretty impressive list of accomplishments!!!  Hope the guitar was ok after it slid down the road 😬

Let's get started with the review..

SEVERED TIES



I really like the guitar tones here, full of sound and crisp, pretty SIC riffs going on here..
Good video concept.. 
Layered guitars are awesome, perfect harmonies and well placed pinch harmonics..
Vocals are stellar I love the way she sings..
Ok that was a crazy solo with all the high end squeals, that's actually harder to do than a person thinks, and just learning how to do that takes countless hours of your guitar NOT making that sound before it actually does.

SOMEWHERE 



This is a slower song, just like a power ballad, but really shows the chord progressions used to create a song, how they match together with the right notes placed in the right places..
I can really relate to the lyrics here..
I love the video..
I'm not reminded of any particular band so that makes them very unique..
Drums are always on point.
*This video has over one million YouTube views

FAR GONE



Another awesome video!!!
Loved the spoken vocals..
Recording the guitar parts must have been a nightmare with all the tricks she's doing, natural and pinch harmonics everywhere,  and well placed.. but as part of a riff that's hard to do..
Damn that's how you end a song!!!

SECRET



Love how this starts..
Solid groves..
I dig the metronome sound, well placed and brings everything together as a part 1 and 2..
Really nice song here.

THE LADDER
