Sorry to say, it's not that good. Not saying that you're bad musicians, but it needs some serious fine tuning. I can't really comment on your drumming, as it's completely mudded up in the recording.
As for the singer, I don't like how he sounds at all. Then again, I may not be the best judge, because I can't stand that style of "singing". He should also lose the hat and stop pacing back and forth while staring at the floor.
Unless you REALLY like what you guys are doing, I would lose the singer, and spend some quality time getting tight with the other guys. Pick some good songs, get someone who can actually sing, and things will improve vastly.

Is your singer wearing a bicycle helmet?

to me it sounds like something I've heard a thousand times. I would like to encourage you to do something different and refreshing.

I would sack your singer and try and find someone who can sing.

ya it is a bicycle helmet. it was our first show we have been a band for around 3 months now. the singer has never touched a mic until a month and 1/2 ago when we got him. i thank you all for your criticism. ive only been drum a year and 1/2 and the guitar has been playing for almost 2 years now, we just do it for fun i never plan on making it big. the guitar player was wearing a witches hat with long pink hair coming out of and and i had a fantastic 4 thing costume on lol. any other advice or cridism would be awsome! thanks

Work on not just tightening things up with the band but on your own individual timing. Practice with a metronome. Practice playing grooves, fills, and transitions in time. Also try and structure your playing in regard to what cymbals you want to hit a bit better. The china overuse was a bit much for me. Cymbals like that have a place in certain spots but not in others. I personally don't treat chinas like a crash that I can just hit at any time, I treat them as accents and they should sound good where they are placed.

Silly outfits (Halloween aside) on stage are a big turn-off in my book.
Overall as a young band with fledgling musicians, i can see a glimmer of what's to come. You all need longer to truly develop your skills, but in the meantime this is a good start.

Concur with previous comments. Play with a click, you do this at a relatively early start to your playing career, the easier it will be. Trust me, i drummed for about 15 years before really sitting down and working with a click...It was soooo frustrating. I wish I'd done it years ago and even today I'm ot 100% comfortable with it.

Your singer needs lessons ASAP though.....Or shooting.....

(Just kidding, but that screaming style just grates on me, and that's coming from a metal fan!)


Whatever is said. DON"T GIVE UP, YOU"LL LOOK BACK ON STUFF LIKE THIS IN 5/10/20 YEARS TIME AND WILL PROBABLY CRINGE, BUT THAT'LL JUST BE A TESTAMENT TO THE IMPROVEMENTS YOU'VE MADE.

Couldn't agree more!
