    Default Unchained Cover by my band

    Hey guys, although you've probably seen the link to my band in my signature, I thought I'd mention that we finished a demo recording of Unchained a little while ago. You can listen to it on our myspace page:

    http://www.myspace.com/balancedband

    We needed a recording of a cover to submit as an 'audition' to a show we played last weekend, so a few weeks ago we got together and recorded Unchained in 2 days. It's a little rough, but hey, it's not like we're gonna release it on an album!

    Normally I wouldn't make a post like this, but I've gotten to know a lot of cool people on this forum and I have no way of tracking down everyone on here who also has a myspace account. So if you like our music, I'd appreciate it if you friend us over there -- just let me know who you are on the links. Thanks!

    Dude, congrats to you, you are the one holding that song together.

    Let's hear some originals!!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    Thanks everybody!

    Jedi: hehe thanks man, that's exactly what I was going for on the solo -- I couldn't settle on just one of Ed's, and every time I'd come up with my own, it just didn't fit in that early VH vibe.

    Dave: We've got around 10 songs almost completely written, and another 10 in the works -- so we'll record and post some soon! We're hoping to record an album over the summer.

    Thanks! We're all college students, and we just love to play, so between class and studying, we're writing and rehearsing. Once finals are over, we should be able to get more done recording wise! Only 3 more days this semester....

    For anyone who may be interested, here is the music video we made for our cover of Unchained.



    Listen in HQ mode if you can -- the audio is synced a lot better that way.

    We compiled the video from a bunch of footage we took while recording the song over a 2 day period, and after a bunch of delays and Youtube compatibility problems, it's finally done and uploaded!
