Review my Band! Empty Quarter!

We just recorded our first EP "Sweet Evil" and are looking for reviews! We are all 15-16 year olds in high school living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Let us know what you think. Thanks!

Oh, if this is in the wrong place, sorry. I read the rules and couldnt find a better place.

Edit: Forgot the link. Yeah, I know its not a good start, but anyways here it is.
www.purevolume.com/emptyquarter

Edit again: In case any of you give a damn, I'm guitar.

You suck.









But really, how about you post a link?

edit: or a picture. I could usually tell if a band sucks or not by their picture.

I'm just going to ask this once, are you trying to rip of Led Zeppelin with that band name?

I'm not one to openly criticize others, so I'll say this: For being young, you guys have a good start. However, you guys need to learn on how to create a basic composition. Everything seems off for little reasons here and there. All those small problems lead to an overall weak song.

Work on it. Good luck bud!

Meh, not my style of music, but as for the quality of the music in and of itself, its a good start. Heck, you got to start somewhere I guess, no one can become perfect or really good at anything without a lot of practice. Considering you are roughly 15-16, not bad, but does need some work

seriously, this sounds just like the mainstream stuff I hear today. You throw this song on madden or nhl 08 and itd fit right in, nobody would say boo, hell, some might even say that songs cool. Not my type of music so maybe thats why im sayin it sounds alike to others, but i can;t be the only one.

Nope. The name has regional significance, the Rub al Khali here.

Everyone else, thanks for the reviews. They're appreciated and we'll do our best to use them to help us grow musically. We're all taking IB higher level music next year so that should help us a little with composition, but more than anything I guess it'll come with time. Keep em coming
