Congratulations on the new addition to your household! This is ace! Rocking out on my sofa to this one (can't move too much because of the heat, so more headnodding than headbanging, but enjoyed this very much)
Bass is rumbling? Check! Rhythm is chugging? Check! Solo is soaring? Check! We're on! Bass sounds great - love the dirty low end tone, but the upper register stuff is very nice to the ears! Lots of lovely lead bits to keep the momentum moving upwards. Heavenly mix - chockers, and very nearly brutal. Great start!
Very glad to hear new stuff from you, my lord. That's a splendidly percussive bass groove. And what an absolutely filthy tone! Oh yes. I like this. Lead guitar is razor sharp, too. That closing solo is the business.
