New Rockish song by my group new, The Goblins.

Maybe I should do a video?

Also, who recognizes the faces in the art?

Not sure I classify this as rock so much. Come to think of it, I'm not sure what I would classify it as.

On first listen, I felt a very disjointed sensation, like one would normally feel when listening to two separate songs at the same time. I was liking a lot of what I was hearing when focusing on particular instruments though.

Made me want to listen again.

Strange thing happened. After the third listen, the disjointed sense I had earlier kind of dissipated to an extent and I started hearing the song more as one piece.

Interesting and challenging. I like this. It's a song that demands an active listen.

If you do a video, hopefully it will carry the same chaotic sensibilities of the song.

Nice one. This is different. I like different.

I like the structure a lot! reminds me of.. Well.. the guy on your avatar

However, I really think the drums should be a lot louder. More precisely, the kick and snare, with a bit more of the HH/cymbals as well..

IMHO, since all the instruments latch on to the drum, but in a different pattern for each... I think having the driving force in front would help a lot.

My 2c

Complex, interesting, disturbing. Am I out of my comfort blanket here? Yes, absolutely, but it's obviously the result of a lot of work and thought. Would I listen to it at home in the evening? No, but I'm not the target demographic so that is irrelevant. Keep on keeping on as they say and bugger the old fuddy duddies like me.......

Unfortunately, in the drum recording all mics were muted except a single overhead... so I already did a lot of work to boost the snare and especially kick to balance.

Well, I like this!

Reminds me of actual Goblin! The 70's italian horror soundtrack band favoured by Dario Argento.

Great work, I like this a lot!

Oh, I didn't know there was a band called 'Goblin'!!!

Do you think "The Goblins" is different enough? Or do I need a new band name?

Thanks! I don't consider myself a good mixer... and it wasn't even a centred overhead, it was part of an XY.

I like how yoor compositions always explore the border between order and chaos. So drums on this are real...what else is not sample-based midi? Everything seems very organic.

Flute is real. Keyboards are always me playing keys (but like, sampled or synth; I don't own a real Hammond or anything). Synth is.. a synth, but on keyboards.
