Description
Another newbie!

This one is a classic hard blues-rocker with a chewy prog-rock center!

;-)

Calchas (Micheal Wark): Vocals, electric guitars, and bass.

I created the midi drum track from modified loops included in several different packages by groovemonkee.com

Thanks for listening and commenting...

Be well all!

Lyrics
ICE COLD

I.
Well she's ice cold
North wind-a-blowin' through her soul
She got icicle stare
One look will chill you to the bone

She's ice cold
Snowballs for breasts
Frozen tundra down below

Yeah she's ice cold
That girl is trouble
Like you've never known

II.
Well she's ice cold (Ice cold...)
A renegade 'berg broken off of the shelf
Yeah she's ice cold (Ice cold...)
Sink your Titanic if you don't watch yourself

She play kindness till the money up and gone
(Up and gone...)

That's the time when the ice storm comin' on
Yeah

Bridge:
Tried to warm her with a love that was clean and true
She just laughed as I lay turnin' blue
If I knew way back then what I know now
I would never touch that girl no way no how

III.
Well she's ice cold (Ice cold...)
North wind blowin' through her soul
Well she's ice cold (Ice cold...)
Sink your Titanic if you don't watch yourself

Ice cold
Snowballs for breasts
Frozen tundra down below

Ice cold (Ice cold...)
That girl is trouble
Like you've never known

Spring time!
A last look at winter? The guitar work is warm and righteous, your production is blooming just now. Thank you for posting your material with us here. Heady work with these classic flavors is rare in this little town.

Hypothermic rock
Whoa - this arctic vortex makes Elsa in Frozen seem like a soft-serve twisty cone. I got frostbite just listening to it.

Excellent rock song, from vocals to drum. Eh, I'm barely hearing the bass. It sounds like it has distortion on it? That kinda removes the lows.

Thanks Vic!
RE the bass. Sadly, you are correct. But the distortion comes 1) through the amp I used in combination with 2) my playing with a pick. I could re-record the bass-lines from scratch, but I'm knee-deep in other music projects, so this is unlikely. I will probably just raise the volume a little on the master.

Thanks for clocking in friend!

How did you get the drums to sound so real?! This is solid. Impressed!

Hey! Welcome back!
groovemonkee.com's packages of midi drums already sound great "right out of the box." I just added a little extra compression and put a slight flange on the Overheads to give them a more icy feel.

Glad you enjoyed this one!

Hi Vic!
When my brother Tom heard this he sent me an email which said: "Best work EVER Mike!" I really don't know... I'm the worst judge of such things. I DO know that I like it a lot. (Unlike "Mixed Signals"---which I'm still ambivalent about.)

Glad you enjoyed it my friend!

High octane rock, Mike. Agree with others re the mix. Excellent. Great balance and the drums sound fantastic. Riffs abound and the stadium rock vocals are some of your best. Kudos. Take care.

Thanks Peter...
RE the vocals...I obviously need to do more of this sort of thing and less of my usual "balladeering."

Glad you enjoyed this one!

I find
that song pic just a hair disturbing, but damn does it fit the lyrics. Great production you've got going on. Another Groovemonkee user here. I've got several of their midi libraries.

Hey Sam!
I too find that pic disturbing!

Yeah, groovemonkee's midi collections rock!

I love you Miss Ogyny
Not since "Hogwash" has this sentiment sounded so good.

Hi Graham!
I actually know a woman like this. Pretty much destroyed the life of one of my sons. Certainly NOT a song about women in general. Predatory behavior is not gender specific by any means.

Glad you dig the sound. RE "Hogwash." I must have missed that one. Who recorded it?

The Groundhogs
Start with "Split" or "Thank Christ" and see if you want to pursue their work. They used to back John Lee Hooker many years ago, hence the name of the band.

Classic rock
with a current feel. Digging the tune, the way the guitar and percussion fit together. Some nice changes. Your vocals are really strong and probably some of my favorite coming from you. Enjoyed and keep uploading.

Hi'ya John!
Glad you felt the "feel" was more current. I try very hard to update my over-all sound but never seem to succeed. Evidently there's still some hope! Ha ha...

Be well bro!

Hooked right in
Classic hard rock-blues indeed.

Reminds me of Thin Lizzy.

Nice guitar work Mike.

Cheers

Thanks Dick
...for the THIN LIZZY reference. Never listened to them much (though I LOVE Gary Moore's later solo work!) but appreciate the comparison.

Be well friend!
