So, first personal post in this.
You guys really deserved this! Your music rocks and you keep supplying us with news about the band for ages. I'm eagerly awaiting the album!:)

Congrats :)

I have been a fan of your music for a while now, Forbidden & You Can't Save The World being my favourites. Is your debut album going to have an international release because I would love to get my hands on a copy. If not, maybe you could tell me where I can import it from?

thanks dudes!!!!! its doubtful being our first album it will be an international release (probably just local), but i have sent our album to ad to put download links up for a short while so you guys can download the album for free :)

sorry we dont have any real artwork yet...we do but there are disputes over which we are using.

we will be releasing the album via hmv/ i-tunes etc the norm so even after you already downloaded it here you can still buy it :D :confused:

the album is now s/t after many possible album name ideas including: 'ginto' 'the uk's burning' and 'forbidden'

thanks again guys and look forward to your reviews/comment :)

Self Title is a good way to go for a debut album, but I believe you should call it Forbidden ;)

Gratz, D-Tox, you've been around for forever and I only heard like 2 of your songs. Downloading the rest as posting this message.

About aotm candidates. I'd like to remind that they're supposed to be your band not just one from your country, or your friend's band, or the band you're in love with. You know, it would suck big time if by some conspiratorial magic some band will win the poll and that band wouldn't even care, share their thoughts and even know about it.

4/8 songs downloaded :).
edit: actually 7/12 :)

Wow, I'm really disappointed that this band is getting featured as aotm. The user's entire existence at the bbs has been incredibly selfish. I mean, the "check out my band!!! www.myspace.com/dtoxrockers" meme exists for a reason... they don't contribute to the bbs other than to whore their own band. They don't listen to anyone else's music or post in other forums... yeah.

Sorry, but I have to disagree with you here. There were quite a few threads where he posted his opinion about other your band artists, he participated in the first two mixtapes and as far as I know, he posts in GOD, too. That's enough to be called a normal part of the your band community in my opinion.

I had similar thoughts when I saw the development of the poll after only one day... we'll have to keep discussing this here so that only real "your band"-artists get this award.

I second this, I have seen him in GOD a few times and I know that he has opened one or two thread as well.

Offspring24 ... which dude are you in your promo picture?

Side note: I find it in bad taste for members to come into the AotM thread and promote other bands. There is a reason those bands aren't AotM, they didn't win in the poll. Also, I don't find it necessary to announce in the AotM thread who you voted for, in the following month. Just vote and leave if you have nothing else to add about the current AotM.

Alright, this took way too long but I was very busy last week.
So I've listened to the album and took care of each song. Here's my "review":

1. The UK's Burning

A good and damn catchy opening song

2. The Truth

I think this is my favourite song of the album. I love the chorus and the metal-esque bridge.

3. Waste Of Time

This is a slower one but it doesn't have less energy. I like the bass and the lead guitar in this one.

4. Forbidden

Well, this is one of your classics. Damn, I know this one for about 3 years now, I think.
And it still rocks as much as it did on the first listen.

5. About Time

Another great song with great, catchy vocals and loads of energy(especially the guitar).
It's a typical song to shout along.

6. So Alone

The vocals in the beginning and in the following verses are a bit too loud in my opinion.
But the chorus and the third verse are great.

7. Fall Into Me

Start headbanging! I wouldn't have expected this kind of song on your album, but it brings
some diversity. I don't love metal, but this one song won't destroy the album - it's rather quite the contrary.

8. Get Off

Another song with a slight metal touch;) The main riff is catchy as usual, and so are the chorus vocals.

9. You Can't Save The World

This one sounds even faster and "more punk" after the two slower songs before.
Great energy + great guitars + great vocals + great bass + great drums = Great song!:)
(This is one of those songs that will be burned in your head for quite some time once you heard them - super catchy:D)

10. Wasted

Another cool song with the trade mark D-Tox sound. What's that sound in the beginning?

11. Silent Sigh

I like this one, too. The guitar sound reminds me of Bad Religion's Anesthesia. Anyway, this is a great song!

12. Now You're Gone

Wow, this grand finish REALLY surprised me. I wouldn't have expected this kind of song although I like it.
This is a really relaxing one (probably because of the strings). I enjoy the general atmosphere and... the solos!
Your guitarist and bassist did a great job there!

So, this is a great debut album with a professional sound quality... I hope you are going to go for a second one!:)

Um guys. The poll should, no, must be fixed. Since all the fuss started with ad8 being TOO responsible, honest and trustful when he included Carajo in there, where it (now it's clear) doesn't belong, the poll isn't valid anymore and that's a lesson, which Adrian shouldn't ignore. So it either should, no, must be reseted without Carajo option, or the Argentinian band should, no, must be just removed. Either way something must, no, MUST be done!

And as Adrian mentioned, your bassist, D-Tox, isn't one of those who stays in shadows. He's a front-liner bassist type.

I don't think the poll has to be reset in case that there is no one who voted for Carajo, not knowing that they don't belong into Your Band and now wanting to vote for someone else. Is this the case?

That would be a fine solution if you ask me. If Carajo gets removed and those who voted for it can vote again that is.
