FDJ Massive, massive classic hard rock sound.Each and every member steps up to the plate with phenomenal performances. The drums are like Thor's Hammer thundering and crashing, bass guitar rumbles and throbs, the guitars both thrash and soar. This is all topped off with vocals that are powerful ,passionate and soulful.
Amazing demo. Favorite track: Drive Around.

paul rote Excellent retro rock. Archive sounds as though their music was dug out of the archives of the history of early seventies hard rock. Favorite track: In the Eyes of Time.

Track Name: Dig It
waking up and walking out to the world
digging myself deeper into the earth
wanting to drift away into the unknown
counting down of all the time that i own

my time's coming up
my time's ticking down
i spent time digging down into the ground to bury all the things that i found

setting out to bury all that i know
skeletons and ghosts will surely follow
don't you waste no time. drop me in the sea
pray the ocean is deep enough for me

my time's coming up
my time's ticking down
i spent time digging down into that ground
dig it

pick me up and carry me to the grave
let me down and bury me all the way
take me out to sea, that watery grave
let me drift away, carried by the waves

my time's coming up
my time's ticking down
i spent time digging down to the ground to bury those things that i found
Track Name: Drive Around
it's been so long
quit your unrequited lovesong
it's gone so late
time's been laid to waste

in the short run
he knows something has to be done
leaves the zip code
takes to the open road

this boy has gone mad
this madness really makes him glad
watch him drive around way across town
picking up the lost and found
drive around, drive around
recover all the lovers, who've broken down

they can see him
they wonder if they recognize his face
these things don't matter
when you really need to up and leave this place

this boy has gone mad
this madness is the thing that makes him glad
watch him drive around way across town
picking up the lost and found
drive around, drive around
recover all the lovers, you’ve broken down
Track Name: Waited Too Long
waiting for my time in the sunshine
cursing the life spent outside of the light
i challenge conventions that lie deep inside of me
i open up my mind and i’m longing to be free

i've waited
too long
i've waited
for far too long
to get where i belong

growing complacent is no place for me
seeking to strike out all i can see
i won't wait much longer. i'll walk into the light
i'll let it reveal every single truth in sight

i've waited
too long
i've waited
for far too long

i realized that i was in the spotlight all along
i'll sing it louder now, i'll sing aloud my song
i've waited long
to get where i belong
i tried to pray
oh every day
but i was turned away
and now i'm on my own
all alone
on my own
Track Name: In the Eyes of Time
it is eerie, though to a degree
as i watch them live their their lives around me
and everyone i used to know
their agendas run in the same fashion

all is the same; all has passed
20 years from now; 20 years past

those wasted hours
i wished i saved away
those wasted hours
i could use them one day

and that day may never come
count your regrets one by one
and live with what you haven't done

those wasted hours
i wished i saved away
those wasted hours
i could use them today

as the years float by
we're left to wonder why
in the eyes of time
which is the greater crime

could you live with all the things you've done,
or should you live with what you haven't done?

what speaks louder, action or inaction?
