Howdy, everyone! As some of you might remember, a couple of years ago I posted here an album I recorded with my prog rock band 'Tangerine Circus. Well, that was more like an experiment given it really didn't have the professional-almost-pristine-like quality we were looking for. Well, in the aftermath of releasing my 'Inner' album (for which I will not miss the commercial, you can check out right here: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=42270.0), we decided to re-record all of our material from scratch. We have two albums worthy of material, and after sorting out the problems we had with our vocalist (let's face it, the vocals sucked back then) we stepped up and sang the songs ourselves. It was a long process, getting our vocal shit together, but I think the result was very good.

Without more chitchat, I leave you the soundcloud page where you can listen to the material we've been uploading so far from the first album of the two. As usual with the music I share with you guys, I was not only the keyboardist but the producer and the mixing engineer as well. I hope you enjoy this. :)

We're gonna have iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc. links soon available for download. We're releasing the first album (Urania, composed originally in 2009) on the 25th of May, and the second album (The Conspiracy Chronicles, composed originally in 2012) will be released in those platforms the 15th of June or something to that extent.  :D

That's awesome!

I really enjoyed Inner.  I look forward to listening to this too, although I likely won't be able to until this weekend.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Listened to Urania. With me being a rather cliche prog fan, my favorite track was probably The Wings. Some really cool ideas in there. It's overall a bit too 'classic prog rock' for my taste specifically, but there is still plenty on the album for me to enjoy.

Currently listening to A Passage Through My Past Life again.

Thank you for your time! Our second album is on the way and should be released throughout the month of June. I figure the musical style of that one will be a better suit for your musical tastes :)

Howdy, folks. I hope I'm not spamming this thread a lot, considering 70% of its posts are by me  :lol

I'm already uploading songs off my second album with this band, 'The Conspiracy Chronicles'. This one some of you folks might remember a couple of years ago, and if you still have those songs or barely remember them you're in for a big surprise on how superior they sound nowadays.

https://soundcloud.com/tangerine-circus

So far, we've uploaded 3 songs off the album. Neohuman, Through Heaven and Lifestream. I hope you enjoy them!

Hey, buddies! Hope to not spam this thread too much... but I'd like to spark some interest again in the music of my band 'Tangerine Circus' that is already in most digital platforms!

Feel free to check the Spotify link right here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/5l6lE0qEKJxHeAnrjrKUZe
Soundcloud free listening: https://soundcloud.com/tangerine-circus
And you can find the music in iTunes as well! I think the links are already somehwere scattered in this thread.

I'd love if you guys listened to this material and gave me your honest impressions and reviews, because I think this is really special music that took a lot of time and effort to achieve! Thank you :)

Listened through the Conspiracy Chronicles yesterday and today, and like you suspected earlier in this thread, I liked it a bit more than Urania. I'd say The Memory Delusion is my favorite song, some truly cool stuff in there, and also has the passages that in my mind stuck out the most on the album. Through Heaven was also a nice track.

In terms of critisism, I don't really have any for the music itself. I suspect that you have made the creative product that you set out to make, and I understand that you are proud of this, I certainly would be. I guess the only thing I'd say is production based. And that is that the vocals are mixed a bit low now and then, and gets drowned out by the instruments. The bass drum is also a bit "click-y", but other than than that it's all fine.

It's so cool that you listened to the entire (long) album, thank you! The Memory Delusion and Through Heaven and precisely my two favorite tracks off the album, so reading you liked them is amazing. Thank you for the feedback on the production, which was done by me. It was a tough project to mix and produce but at the end I was happy with the result. I agree that at times the voice might seem buried in the mix, and all of that is already taken into account for my future albums/mixes!

Feel free to like our facebook page and post something nice about the album because we really want to get our social media going!

Apologies for the necro but I have a question. I can't seem to find any live videos of your non-instrumental tracks so I wanted to know who sang each part in Cycle of Madness & Rushing Dreams. Would you be able to post them here?

Of course! Thanks for the necro, that way more people can check out my music  :lol

Cycle of Madness. -

Verses - I sing them.
Pre-Chorus - Bass player (Luis) and me sing.
Chorus - Guitar player (Francesc) sings lead and I sing harmony

Rushing Dreams -

First verse - I sing it.
Chorus - Guitar Player (Francesc) sings it, we all sing harmony
Second verse - Drummer (Daniel) sings.

I think that pretty sums it up. Thank you for your interest! What do you think of the material?

Well, I already said that I bought it (by that I meant Urania), but I must say that even though it may not be the best album I have, it's probably one of my more played ones. I really like the line it treads between accessible & progressive, & how triumphant & epic the later tracks get while still not in the slightest way coming of as cheesy or overdramatic. It seems to be right in the middle in a lot of places for me, hitting that sweet-spot that caters to multiple of my tastes at once. It's really good.  ;D

Hey, guys!

If you are into the band, you might find of interest we've just launched a new website. It has a brand-new design that's miles better than the one we used to have. You can read about us and lots of cool stuff over there! Feel free to browse!

I only heard snippets so far (I'm about to go to bed-I'm old) but I LOVE what I hear. Very much. I know what I'm listening to next time I have a little bit of time to myself.

I have listened to your tracks on soundcloud - some really cool stuff amongst it. Especially "Into her traveling Mind" is great (but I also like e.g. "Neohuman" or "A higher State of Mind") - interesting altering time stamps and rhythms.

(PS: Vocals in some of the songs are little bit quiet sometimes...(?))

Thank you for the feedback! Glad you liked it!

With the vocals, it was more of a recording/mix thing (everything was recorded and produced in my home studio), and there were many technical limitations in terms of what we could do, but we definitely have that in mind for the next album. It's gonna sound even better!
