    I don't know what came over me. My Charvel just took possession of me.

    When I heard the track at first, I was a little afraid of it; it´s fast and long. Anyhow, what you hear is the third playthrough with added second track on the refrains.

    @bigbreak : sounds good! Just a little low on volume and short!

    Ahaha...oh gods...
    Well the contrarian in me found a really wide untight distortion for this one.....
    Counted to 4 and stopped thinking....

    More noodling than anything else.

    Yeah, well, like Mellencaster says, anything more than two minutes of wanking can grade on a person's nerves, but thanks for the track. D is a great key for Metal. It gives a lot of opportunities for open string stuff and harmonics. I spent thirty years in L.A. playing that stuff.

    @NWinther : you dialed in that sound, and you dialed in that playing! Some parts remind of good old Ritchie B.
    @Mellencaster : though it´s not the typical guitar sound and playing style for metal, your guitar surely has some dark aura.

    Both you gentlemen rock it.

    Mjark - Great lines on the refrains and sweet melodic phrasing fit nicely with the backer
    fendrguitplayr- Wow Mike, if I didn't really know you, I would've never guessed this wasn't your style playing . Very cool

    @Mjark : I fully agree with Mike; love the refrains! As it is, it sounds a little like "Ghostriders" on Metal, very nice. Just turn up the volume of your guitar.
    @fendrguitplayr : your guitar sounds really destroyed; I am not even sure if it is a guitar, could also be a synth. You have chosen the title of your track wisely; your track transports that feeling. Wow!

    A little out of my wheelhouse, especially for over 4 minutes, but I gave it a shot (I think the second half came out better). Gear is Muslady headless kit (Artec Crusader bridge), Rowin Phaser (MXR Phase 95 copy), Hotone Binary Amp (Diezel VH4 model), Hotone Binary Amp (Bogner Uberkab 4x12 IR), additional echo/delay via Audacity.

    @bigbreak - Good 80's sound, made me look for big hair. Good idea cutting it short, I should have done that.
    @udoering - Nice harmonized sound with the two tracks. Made me think of a car game soundtrack for some reason.
    @NWinther - Good metal playing and speed.
    @Mellencaster - Sounds like cowboy metal, like the soundtrack to a space cowboy type movie
    @Mjark - Nice echo-ey ethereal tone that contrasts with the backing with some shreddy bits.
    @fendrguitplayr - Good playing. 80's synth sound as others mentioned.

    bgmacaw - Good phrasing all through and my apologies for the long track, I should've kept it at a 2 minute mark.

    @bigbreak - Nasty tone -n- Snarlin' riffin' BB. Smokin'.
    @udoering - You conquered your fear Ullrich with melodic development and awesome harmonized guitar tacks. You spanked that guitar and track!
    @NWinther - Track MIA.
    @Mellencaster - Love the tone and whammy work Mike. Rockin' it!
    @Mjark - Shred Meister in the house. Great vibe, harmonized tracks and approach Mark.
    @fendrguitplayr - Track MIA.
    @bgmacaw - Cool tone / fx and nice phrasing BG. You hit your stride as the track progressed.
