    I am. www.yousendit.com works.

    Rapidshare.de and megaupload.com are also crappier, but possible choices.

    Just a little suggestion... the piano loop at the beginning of 'Believe Me' is off. The part at the end of the loop goes by too fast. I believe they are 16th notes... and yeah, they're rushed.

    I'd be interested in hearing some covers not related to LP... in general it's kind of hard to cover LP due to Chester's unique voice...

    EDIT: Same thing with the loop from From The Inside... either adjust to the loop or change the loop itself.

    EDIT 2: The Truth Within > ALL THE COVER SONGS. :lol:

    Those are good, but I couldn't stand to listen to most of it because of the feedback. You gotta find a way to get rid of it. Also, your guitar has wayyyyy too much low end.

    Vocals are frickin tight. Guitars, turntables and bass too. Sometimes the drummer loses his beat but it doesn't happen much.

    It's a shame the recording quality SUCKS :lol: . I'm sure someone will set you up a nice "home studio" for free to get some good quality demos. You've got a lot of potential, doesn't sound like the average home band. Keep going!

    Well, shouldn't be hard to cover Limp Bizkit.

    Your vocalist is probably 20 times better than Fred Durst.

    I'm looking forward to more original songs.

    I can see great potential here if you worked on all these songs a little more, however I wouldn't suggest just doing cover songs all the time. My band usualy does more of our own songs than covers however we do love covering songs at little gigs we do.

    Wow, Runaway's vocals were nearly spot on with Chester's. First cover I've heard that sounds like Chester. I like it.

    Wow you almost sound like Chester himself in some of those covers. Awesome job man - once you get some decent quality recordings without feedback post them on purevolume. Your band has a lot of potential.

    Gotta watch the separations. Invest in a metranome or somethinga nd practice with it. My band had a similar problem and we started practicing with my keyboards metranome and it went way. Just watch your tempos.

    Well so far all I have heard is the Fort Minor cover, which doesn't sound bad, but the chorus sounds terrible as far as vocals go. The rest of the time the vocals are fine though. I'll edit this once I listen to the other songs.
