Very good song, It is normal to get lost in the waters of exciting music.It is normal to respond to the stimulation of harmonious music.it is normal to remember life experiences through specific music, just as it is normal to look for a refuge in music. Music, like a sphere, encloses an environment and protects it. Music covers us like a dress, like a medicine heals us. Music a flag, a light, a color, a food. Music is a celebration, it is a farewell, it is also a consolation. Society, like a tissue of the human body, is full of running engines that work at the same time,each one with different characteristics, sizes and aspects. Each motor performs a specific function and each one plays an indispensable role so that everyone, in turn, can perform their own function.When music enters the fibers of our humanity and becomes part of this machinery, surprising energy plays in favor of each of the engines that make up the same, immediately orchestrated changes are manifested for a common good and the journey that music undertakes inthe fabric of a community is the stimulus that contributes to restoring what needs to be rehabilitated.Exactly as it happens to the individual, it happens to the collective:the positive discharge emitted by the sounds of exciting music,they are a nourishing food, it is normal to respond to the stimulation of harmonious music,It is normal to feel that something has changed, it is normal to feel rehabilitated. Music transforms everything, this is not an experiment, it is a reality.



I like the originality of your work. Strong message and creativity is a big plus. Good production, I can hear some good vocals to this, good job on the final mix-down. I can tell you have your heart and soul into what you do. Keep on pushing and never give up or get distracted in pursuing the dream of making it. I like the instrumental blend of sounds with some vocals and the production on the track is good. Keep up the great work! Peace!!!

Excellent cover of a classic!


Your cover follows the original very closely. Based on that Anbaric's sound is very polished & professional. The guitar fills are just as solid as Buck Darhma's on the original recording. If your original songs are as good as this one, then I am sure you will find a large audience for this classic rock sound!

A great cover from Sweden!


Anbaric just caught my attention with their cover of a favorite classic rock song of mine by Blue Oyster Cult - Don’t Fear The Reaper. When the opening guitar intro began I could tell these guys weren’t kidding around. Don’t Fear The Reaper isn’t a three minute pop song either, with several sections to it’s arrangement and some intricate musical parts to play. I’m looking forward to hearing some original songs from this group of Swedish rockers. Definitely check them out!

Good song!


Always liked this song. Had a chance to meet them as the left a recording session and we started ours in Long Island New York. The production is great, and the music is tight. The vocals are spot on. If you are going to do a cover this how you do it!

( Don't Fear ) The Reaper


I have reviewed your original music before and I have to say I wasn't surprised to hear you do an amazing rendition of this song. You guys are extremely talented and I expected nothing less than what you gave on this track. At your skill level you should be able to record a cover extremely professionally and accurately. I recorded several covers for tribute cds and I did exactly what you did with this one. I recorded it just like the original. Then I started to get bored with doing it exactly like the original and I started to experiment with the songs and gave them a bit of different life. I am extremely proud of the covers and the tribute albums my band is featured on. I hope you guys get the feeling someday if you haven't already. You guys deserve to be heard and be on tour. You guys are awesome and if I ever get a chance to catch you guys live I will! Keep the music alive my friends!

Classic track updated!


Nice production. The voice is well suited to this song. You can't resist this great classic rock track. The drums are nice and crisp. the guitar comes in well too. Love the harmonies and the lead guitar as well!.

Blue Öyster Cult Cover


This a credible cover of the classic anthem. For American Millennials the first exposure to this tune was the famous Will Ferrell/Jimmy Fallon/Christopher Walken Saturday Night Live "More Cowbell" sketch. Anbaric dispenses with the cowbell but professionally plays a modern version of the tune complete with the middle interlude. There are updated sounding metal edged guitar solos. Vocals are in fine form. I hope I didn't miss the cowbell? I heard some percussion where the cowbell is on the BOC original. I confess that I was listening on my laptop and had some Hi-res audio Coltrane playing on my system-I don't think I missed the cowbell tho. Anyway another outstanding effort by Anbaric on a tune I can envision them playing as an encore at a concert. Nice job. Pro band.

Excellent sounds


Oh yeah I wasn’t expecting that type of sound it was so amazing. The beginning was just a little bit slow but about half way through I was thinking who is this damn band. I was so surprised I slap the crap out of my buddy. He liked the song too just not getting slapped

Bop review


Here’s a great song from the past by a group called Blue Oyster Cult,this was a very popular song back in the day,also another smash hit entitled Godzilla. This song sounds pretty much the same as the original very good instrumentation and production. The arrangement and tracks were produced very well. I notice some improvements in the overall arrangement of the tune. Very well done.

Dont Fear he REeaper


I have to say right at the beginning here.. covers is not my favorite.. unless its done great or very different .. this is musically and vocally fantastic...no really it is also the recording itself ..tighter way way warmer then the BOC recording. Streamlined it right down perfectly.. bravo

Excellent cover of am all time classic


I listened with much enjoyment. Solid musical performances across the board, but the vocals could've been a little smoother. I hear a few semi squeekers in the backing vocals... nothing major, and I'm not a better singer... so take the for whats it worth.Very impressive guitar work, drums are a bit more crowded than the original, but in most sets it works very well.

Nice cover song


I really appreciate the drum work on this song. The guitar tone is very close to the original song as well. The music is spot on. The vocals are ok and they are on in key but there is not much energy coming off of the vocals but overall prettty decent cover of the classic rock tune. I saw the original band in 1985. :)
