    We're a speed/thrash metal band, we use mainly Megadeth and Metallica as influence but there's also early Anthrax, early Pantera and a bit of Motorhead into it. I'm the rhythm guitar, singer and composer, but the band would be nothing without our drummer, who's got deals with studios so we can record our demos for cheap and our lead guitar, who composes most of the solos.

    Here's a video of us playing live with our mascot:


    Here's our videoclip:


    if you wanna help out the band, you can either like us on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Polari...26430340767242

    or buy our ep! it's only 5 dollars, and we'll be spending the money on recording, cds & t-shirts: http://polarismetal.bandcamp.com/album/running-away-ep

    You got a really 80s sound, I've just finished listening to the first song and I can definiatly hear a lot of Megadeth influence in it.
    Something I'm bothered about is a few things though ;

    The drums are in my opinion too high in the mix, there's almost no bass at all and the vocals could be higher.
    The drums themselves take up too much of the bass spectrum, what can be done is fixing so that the bass frequency on the bass-guitar is higher, keep the lower end to the bass-guitar and the higher end (of the bass spectrum) to the drums. This will make both the bass-guitar and bass-drum stand out but not clash together.

    I got a feeling a lot of this comes from having it on youtube though, you should upload it to bandcamp.

    thanks for the feedback! i must say that those demos are badly mixed, and we're actually working on the final remixes. we got a nice remix going on for Cold Blooded Justice here.

    again, thanks for the feedback!

    brazil, since we're brazilian we (were) touring on the city of sao paulo and other cities like sorocaba but atm we're out of gigs, we're looking for festivals to join. the good thing is that a friend of ours is arranging a festival and he might get us as the main band on it! at the moment we're just rehearsing in case a gig opportunity comes by.

    Normally all newly created metal bands sound like shit (to my experience), but even if not my preferred genre of music, it's not badly done, singing is good and it's got an actual beat into it.

    Nice work!

    the main problem is that nowadays, it's impossible to get big in brazil. we need to get out of this shithole if we wanna get famous, or else we'll never see a future outside rockbars and pubs.

    Edited:

    but thank you for the compliment!

    if you send your music to a few A&Rs in europe i'm sure a few would be interested, alot of drum and bass labels have been taking upcoming artists over from south america and australia over here so i don't see why it wouldnt apply to metal

    we've been thinking about doing that, but we're going to finish our debut album first. about 10-11 songs on it, and i think it should be impressive material from an oldschooler point-of-view.

    But the mix is pretty bad, so read up some mixing guides or something.

    we don't need mixing guides, our drummer is a professional mixer. the thing is, we just didn't mix them properly for the demos. on the third post i think there's a link to the remixed Cold Blooded Justice, just so you see the difference.

    thanks!

    This really does sound great. My only complaint is the vocals in cold blooded justice aren't aggressive enough for my tastes.

    CBJ wasn't exactly made to be agressive, more heroic. it was inspired by "Lone Justice" by Anthrax.

    Edited:

    we just wanted the album to me something really varied but at the same time really oldschool and just raw thrash/speed metal.

    Pretty sweet stuff, sounds a lot like Megadeth judging from the first song. The vocals instantly reminded me of mechanix.

    we do on our gigs. and we plan on releasing our cover of it on the actual album.

    Edited:

    man this new song is fucking awesome, mainly inspired by early metallica and andre matos' first band: viper. this is by far my favorite song from all 10 songs of the album. i can't wait to record this on saturday.

    we'll record next month (hopefully) three more songs and start remixing stuff for our debut album, which should come out 2-3 months from now. we'll also have a bandcamp release so it would be awesome if you guys helped us out by buying our album there for 10 bucks when we release. keep tuned.

    i will also post the remixed version of battle master here soon.
