Description
yup, i've been absent for awhile.

i recorded the music for this around 2 months ago when i would have a little time here and there. around a month ago a major wind storm blew though the city where i live. this knock out power for 200,000 people. just around the block there were app. 20 trees down and everyone was without power and heat for 8 days in my area. the house was maintaining a 45 degree temperature. but it gave me time and the idea for the lyrics. i didn't get around to laying down vocals until a week ago.

Lyrics
Pulling Down The Universe

i wear a black cloud dark as a bat
and i wear it just like a hat
i’m not really sure how i feel about that
will it rain down or dissapate
there really is no reason to elaborate
i’m just anticipating the lightning to strike

pulling down the universe
could be better, could be worse
pulling down the universe

empty holes where the energy drains
places forgotten that hold no names
and these pictures are not alive
some are faded some black and white
this is how i picture the universe
as the lights go out and darkness seeps in

pulling down the universe
could be better, could be worse
pulling down the universe

i use these candles to warm these hands
it’s a cold land in a primal state
here the universe will close the shades

pulling down the universe
could be better, could be worse
pulling down the universe

very nice!
great lyrics and love the acoustic interlude, very effective. whole song is solid. for some reason it makes me think of Hawkwind, but regardless it is a great piece.

Really like the pscho-style intro. Drums and guitars are tight as. Liking the imagery in the lyrics, too. This is the goods, Vic. That Ray Manzarek style outro is a classic. From adversity... Take care.

What an opening
Those 4 notes sealed my fate. After that my ears were in your hands (odd metaphor but there you go). First rate playing and production, and your signature vocals are perfect for this style you've created Nice one Vic.

Thanks, and best for the holidays!

Pull that sky lever!
Reminds me of The Doors. Weather reports should be sung. No more annoying weathercasters in ugly sweaters stumbling over spoken words.

Hey Vic, sorry I'm late ... I've been drifting in and out of MJ lately ... sometimes we cyber musicians have a real life....
Love the intro ... superb guitar work. Diverse choices of EFX ... they all work together so well. Is that a midi guitar twd's the end? Love the contrast between the heavy crunchy rhythm with the flange/chorus rhythm.. Really good piece Vic.
All the best in 2016

Sounds like....
...the electricity is back on!!!
Rock 'n' Roll as it should be. Great song. Love the fuzzy guitars and all those interesting things going on in the background. Just has a feel to it that is solid and confident. Excellent mix and overall recording quality, too. Wow.

Very cool opening. It sounds somewhere halfway between guitar and synthetic. The rest of the track is equally solid.
