Oh baby. Awesome drums. Awesome RIFF. the outro riff is reminiscent of early Bob Mould, very cool

Wow, really hits like a hammer. Amazing guitar sounds... total wall of sound! Super heavy.  Contrasts well with the breaks. Very Cool!!

The beginning had kind of an "old west" feel to me, although that got kind obliterated when the sick drums and heavy guitars blasted in. Very impactful.

Cool instrumental, darn those circumstances!

Progressive songs hardly ever need lyrics, they just detract from the experience.

Great job, a nice guitar song to rock out on.

This sounds like Long Distance Calling. I'm digging it.

Thanks! The Foo Ultra + RTM2 packs hit so well together.

Thank you! The song originally started out that way but when I got stuck I decided to bring in the heavy.

Thanks for the comment. I do like it as an instrumental, although some vocal melody would have broken up the redundant chord progression "chorus".

It's no bother at all, sometimes you just want to hit a theme home by doing it over again.

Thank you! I was a big fan of that jazz tone.
