My band Garden have just stuck a demo up on our facebook, have a listen!

Apologies for the less-than-perfect recording quality. We're recording an EP at the beginning of next year which we'll be spending a lot more time on, and which features much more current material, the demo Incubus being 3 years old itself.

Cheers!

Oh, because I noticed it recommended in the guidelines for this thread (and in case it interests anybody)...

Garden are from Edinburgh, Scotland
Our group includes the standard voice, guitar, fretless bass, keys, drums set up along with a violinist, cellist, saxophonist and flautist.

Welcome aboard. Hug

Incubus I've listened to ... fantastic melodic-core progressive metal (especially darkly fuzzy bass and crying guitar), superb stuff indeed. Clap

Shameless bump, with the addition that I am recording vocals, bass guitar, double bass and euphonium for our EP over the coming weeks. This might interest anybody who come across this post. It might not.

Oh and if you listen and enjoy... please 'like' or 'follow' so you can keep up with the EP's progress!

Shameless bump... not to mention, Garden(minus a drummer) will be piling into my bedroom to rehearse this weekend for the upcoming EP "Seedling". All seven of us! Expect some meaningless progress reports in photographic form!

Hi, heard the demo, don't dare to choose a location by one song, but seems to me that it's closer to Symphonic Metal.or Heavy Prog.

Maybe with more songs could be easier to find a suitable home.

Good luck

Iván

It is symphonic metal. Symphonic prog metal.

If you're referring to the specific categories on the site, then fair enough, I wouldn't know how the bands are organised here but if you're speaking more generally I do think you're splitting hairs.

Or rather, progressive symphonic metal if you like. Of course it is also very power-metal based.

And indeed, there's more variety to come, hopefully 3 more songs will be recorded before summer!

Today we recorded the piano parts for two songs, "Freya" and "North", guitars and violin follow later this weekend.

When we reach 100 "likes" on our facebook page we will release an instrumental demo of one of these songs!

Geez a hand pals!

For those of you who are used to listening to MIDI, there's a short new demo on our facebook page and bandcamp of some new material. More sophisticated and complex than Incubus, perhaps... !

P.S "like" the facebook page to be kept up to date with the EP progress, recording has just gotten under way!

I've just done a preliminary mix of "Freya's Song" from our upcoming debut EP, please have a listen to the sample, and if you like it, please spread the word and "like" the facebook page or follow us on soundcloud!

Cheers

Well, the last upload was crap, so it's just as well nobody noticed...

But there is now a full, first mix of Freya's Song. The EP is taking longer than expected but this song is complete, have a listen at Facebook, Bandcamp or Soundcloud, and do "like", follow or share if you fancy!

Cheers

Samuel

Thanks Samuel. I'll give this a good listen when on the train travelling Tuesday p.m.

In the meantime, it is not usual for a band to be considered for addition until at least a full release has been made, i.e. your EP. So do please keep us in touch with developments.

In the meantime, I'll past again when I've had a good listen.Thumbs Up

Cheers lazland, and don't worry I'm not really fussed about inclusion in the database just yet, happy listening and hopefully I'll have more to report before long.
