I like the guitar work on this song. Is this a steel guitar, or what? Cool song, too -- reminds me kind of Tenacious D!

Is this an original?

The Guitar used was Martin D-50 Acoustic. The song is original, glad you enjoyed it :)

I definitely did! Classic guitar Are you guys working on a new album, and when are you coming to Pittsburgh?

Hehe, love the medieval vibe here! It reminds me of a cross between Adam Ant, Blackmore's Night and Iron Maiden! Different voices create interesting texture and I like the soft female BV's. Is that percussive sound the strumming hand on the guitar? Found it slightly overpowering in places. Would like to hear this with a big drum playing a galloping rhythm, maybe a Bodhran. Cool tune : )

Have to say, this made me giggle a bit- mostly because you loved the female BV, and we are an all male band ;) The percussive sound is a Bodhran, unfortunately we haven't quite nailed our recording technique on it to get that full sound- possibly, we just need a bigger Bodhran. Thanks for the feedback. :)

Hehe, looks like I got it completely wrong!! That's quite funny : D Didn't mean any offence to the high vocalist ; ) It could be how you're miking the bodhran I guess, It's quite a difficult instrument to capture the whole tone. Perhaps one mic either side, although this is difficult when you're playing it!
