I make it pretty clear in my bio that I'm an electronic guy, but I'll do my best! First off, the production is totally on point! The vocals are tastefully tucked back to make the kick, snare, guitars, and bass sound huge. It works! Really virtuosic drumming! I really dig the double kick stuff, though one might argue that it overshadows the vocal, especially in the chorus. The vocals are especially nice in the upper register, particularly in the prechorus. Great harmonies. It's nice to hear a bridge for a change! These days most would cut it down to three minutes and skip it. All in all, I think it's a fantastic song! To my ears, it could've come out 10 years ago, fwiw. Unfortunately I don't know anyone in the right space to share it with, and my Depeche Mode loving followers wouldn't click on it unless I tricked them with the wording, and I don't do that. Best of luck with the release, and thanks for sharing it with me! -Brian.
Hi Rise in Veins - as a metal / hard rock fan, growing up on it in the 80s, I don't get to hear a lot new bands that I can get excited about. but right from the beginning this sounded great - a few nods to early Queensryche too maybe? Here's the thing - i feel for anyone doing rock, metal, indie rock - as there's not as many DIY venues as say EDM and Hip Hop - channels to support, blogs, etc. Here's my biggest piece of advice. You need to stand out be outrageous or 1000% unique or something that gains attention in a cool way. Like - I'm thinking Baby Metal. Different but same. Amazing metal but it was a Japanese anime girl group take on it. Like it was worth talking about. So, what's the VISUAL IDENTITY of RISE IN VEINS? Right now I'm just seeing an "eye" in the artwork. Like that isn't super engaging. Part of this is - how can identify a RISE IN VEINS fan? I'm pretty sure if I'm on the Sunset Strip in 1987 or in L.A. in general - I can tell who my "tribe" is by the way they dress...like "for sure" those guys are into Motley Crue vs those other people there who are probably into Metallica. So really it might sound semi cheesy (or not) but I think you really need to define that also as a cornerstone....that's what all great metal has had. And then because the music is hard and intense - you have leeway to do something on the marketing side that brings attention to you. What would Nathan Explosion and Dethklok do? Kidding aside, on a smaller scale - that's what you have to start thinking and stand out of the box and gain attraction that way in my opinion. Get Ryan Holiday's book "Perennial Seller" and skip to the marketing section and read immediately - you should get some ideas going. Hope it's helpful.!
I'm not super into this style of hard rock but there's no denying it's a well-written and well-produced track that could definitely appeal to the type of audience you're looking for. In terms of promotional advice, I would start by suggesting that you share your lyric video with your fluence submission instead of the soundcloud link or at least include the lyrics in your submission since your bio on your website calls out your lyrics, put them on display! This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture of who you are and what you're about along with an easy way to find more of your music if they're interested. If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon Music for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Lastly, make sure you have a strong social media presence and that you're on all the right platforms (tik tok, instagram, triller, etc.) with a unique aesthetic as this will help you draw in listeners and hopefully stand out amongst a sea of performers. Having strong visual content and music videos can def help get your music out there more than just releasing it without any promotional effort. Lastly I can't stress enough how important it is to build your own fanbase on social media and really push your own personality across your channels and have it look and feel as pro as possible. Artists have more power than ever these days so take advantage of all the tools available! Best of luck!
Yep. This is good. We need this kind of music more than ever these days. When it comes to promotion, you'll need a solid social media strategy. Make sure that all comments receive replies so you can turn early fans into evangelists. And if there's money in the budget, create a video for YouTube. Even a lyric video is better than nothing. And you are on all the music streaming platforms right? Are you looking for radio airplay? Then you need a publicist/plugger to help get the right attention. Look for rock stations with new music shows and submit this. Tell you what: Send me high quality MP3 and a short bio and I'll do what I can to get you a feature play on 102.1 the Edge. Use firstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile, let me promote this on my social networks. That'll be good for about 100,000 people.
