Did anyone else purchase the music minus one tracks of Human Hardware?  I got the tracks minus the drums, and it is a lot of fun and also challenging to play along with the tracks.  It really makes you appreciate the amount of details that went into the songs.

Bump.

I had the house to myself today, so I decided to track some drum covers of Your Eyes and Human Hardware.  Through up some mics for kick, snare and overheads and went for it.  Here they are:

You nailed the songs! :metal
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Thanks!  I'm hoping to knock out some more when the time allows.

Thought this was really cool, someone did a music track to a drumsolo by Virgil. So if you can't stand 14min solo drumsturbation this might help:

The guy doing these videos is a beast! I asked him to make one with Mangini, hope he finds one he can work with :metal

That's cool! What's funny is that I honestly didn't notice the music was added on the first time I saw it, I genuinely thought it was him playing with the music, I just assumed it was a music collab with some guy named Alastair Taylor.  :lol

Good song.  Not too sure yet about the album overall.  I'm liking the music a lot more than the vocals right now.  The guy just seems to be all over the map and isn't focused on melodies.  Do I dare say he sings out of key sometimes?  Sure sounds that way.

Sala of all the places in Sweden?  :lol

No diss to Sala and congrats to them lol.

Would love to go, it's a bit too far from me but if that's the only date I might go.

This is such a cool part in Paralyzed the way Virgil plays it together with the band:

The more I see Virgil play, the more I'm happy DT didn't take him.

He probably would have been bored.

In my mind i've have a hard time seeing him ever saying yes to a gig like DT but at the same time, in most cases you go where the money is.

What I love about Virgil on this album is how lowkey his drumming actually is. In this song he really plays with the song and not ontop and I love that.

There's been times when I felt Virgil was overplaying a lot on some songs/albums, but he NAILED IT with IceFish :metal :metal :metal

Giving the album a spin again. Such a shame the project kinda just evaporated like that, I really like the album.

What does that mean? Did this project die out already? That would be very disappointing.

They’re releasing a live album this year, so no.

Oh, nevermind then. It had just gotten incredibly quiet from my point of view.

Hey folks,
I've recently discovered Icefish and I'm totally speechless!!  :omg:
Stellar musicianship and amazing tunes...and their live videos are unbelievable!
Check the new ones on their Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvA0C0q43tVzX7v0ANClS_g/videos
I really hope they will release another album soon! :hefdaddy
