Hello guys. First time here. I would like to introduce you to Delicious Grace. It's a musical project where they write their own songs. They are just starting out.

Guns N' Roses is such an iconic group for us that's why we decided to post our song here. I hope you like it:

I like the vocal melody, the drums and the piano. There are some sour tones here and there. I would preferred it without the vocal backing and with the lead vocal a bit stronger in the mix.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to it. I'm glad you liked some of it.

The production is not ideal. That's a fact. But we're going to get it right.

We are currently working on new songs that will definitely sound a lot better.

It's really catchy. It got stuck in my mind. What I particularly like about the vocal melody is the drop at "hold your head strong" (?). It is really catchy. I also really like the piano part that starts the song and that is repeated after the verse, before the vocals kick in.

The backing vocals, especially when the chorus starts, is a bit messy. And the mixing is too muddy.

Looking forward to new songs Smile

The coda feels a bit like GN'R, like the ending to Locomotive with piano and guitar on top. Nice tone on the guitar. I think I need to here it more times to really get into that piano melody. Sounds nice.

Thank you, man. I'm really happy about what you said about the piano. It wasn't easy to convince some people that the piano, in this song, should as loud as it could be.

''hold your head strong'' is not in the song. Can you tell me approximately at what minute you heard it?

It's absolutely amazing to hear that. GN'R is one of our main influences.

I see. The correct would be ''Though the night has come''.

Hi guys. This is a song I wrote called ''The Boy from Memphis''. It's still in demo status but I really wanted to share it with Elvis' fans (I guess we've got a few around here).

A humble homage to one of the greatest singers of all time. Hope you enjoy:

Hello everybody. I usually don't write about this particular subject but I couldn't help it. Here it goes a political statement about something really wrong. Take it for what it is.

Hello everybody. We've got a new demo out. It's called ''Nocturnal''. Hope you like it.



CIRCADIAN RHYTHM
The Latin words circa diem translate to ‘about a day’. Circadian rhythms are pretty ancient. They are a result of life that evolved on a planet that rotates over a period of 24 hours. Being able to anticipate daily environmental fluctuations is remarkably useful, hence these biological clocks are virtually ubiquitous. Disrupting them causes complications. Circadian rhythms are therefore fascinating on a molecular, medical and evolutionary level.

I like it! I would have preferred a better mixed version. The horns are cool, and the drums.

There is a quality to your songs that reminds me of something, but I can't really put my finger on it. Ah! Now I remember, it reminds me of And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead. It sort of gives me the same feeling as their debut record.

I think the melodies and instrumentation is great. A better produced version would be great. In general the vocals need to be more prominent in the mix, although for this song I think it worked better. And there are sour notes here and then, especially on sustained notes, the tone tends to wobble a bit.

Much better vocals and would have deserved less distortion and clearer in the mix. I liked the tone on the intro guitar. Nice buildup.

My favorite is still the first song, simply because it is really catchy, but I appreciate the variety of your songs - keep them coming! Smile

I've never heard of them but will definitely check it out.

We have some plans to go back to a professional studio some time. We're just figuring out the best way to do it. I mean, what songs should be recorded and stuff.

Thanks for giving detailed reviews on all of the songs. It means a lot for us.
