Very Nice Mix!
I love it when a band mixes elements of rock, metal, & prog into something as classic as Christmas music. This is very well done and keeps the melody recognizable with additional guitar riffs and harmonies that spice things up and feed the rock fan within. I can hear the LA influence as well as really nice rhythmic grooves throughout. I would definitely like to hear more from these guys. Great Work!

Powerful bit of buzz driven Christmas here. It could only be better if I was still inclined to partake in those merry chocolate brownies of my Xmas youth. I love how the rhythm sets the edge at the start for the riffs to play around. Kind of sets an 'on the edge of your seat tension' though after 3 mins I realize the tune isn't going to kick the ass of Xmas off the stage...sad face )-: I love the tune, but would love it more to build onto a final 80's heavy metal explosion of Xmas madness. Keep it up boys...you almost have a genre of your own...X-as thrash metal! I'd love to hear that album!!
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
This is a tough song to review. There is nothing to say about the writing. The song has stood the test of time. No melodic surprises. No dazzling displays of virtuosity superior to all other rock guitarists. No lyrics or vocals used. What there is, is an attempt to make a familiar thing just interesting enough through an Outfall approach, to make us want to listen. The arrangement itself is not boring and at the right time of the year will have enough appeal to be added to playlists. The production is good overall and if I can't rave about it, it's probably because I've OD'd on traditional Christmas songs. It may be my fault that I didn't want to listen before I heard it. It is to their credit that I feel slightly more positive about it all now. So thumbs up. If we're in the mood for a Christmas song, this is just unique enough to make me want to pick it over an alternative.

God REst Ye...
A bit of a Spanish Flamenco tone of persuasion on the percussion throughout. As always these musicians are really inspiring with well executed instrumentals. Guitar riffs lift you up out of your seat! I especially like the percussion which calls to mind an image of a room full of men clapping to the beat and even dancing. May God Give You Rest All Ye Merry Gentle Men of Outfall.

Original take on an iconic carol
Well, it is that time of year! Very original adaptation. Christmas music for heavy rock fans, you could run with this an do a whole CD by next Christmas! All instrumentation well done, but as a guitarist I especially enjoyed the lead guitar soloing.

Star the opening with acoustic guitar before laying into that electric guitar. yes! This was absolutely a great way to rock this song up! I'm not sure what to think about the howling sound or humming sound I'm not sure what it was but if they could possibly delete it or remove that part of the track that that would be my only suggestion. Loved hearing those lead guitar licks! They sound and mix very well with the tune and the beach. And that gets her absolutely rocks!

Hidden meanings are rarely important, when the music is profoundly exaggerating the current situation of the mind itself. Even though this can be also considered as a way of getting the job done by actually not expressing too many details of the message that has been precessed by the time of this review. Fundamentally broken thoughts, however, can lead to s state of nothingness and despair. The knight in shining armor rescuing the maiden in distress can be seen too obvious choice reflecting the hope for a divine interception or a final solution for the future?

Outfall's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" Instrumental
Upon your very first listen to Outfall's "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" Instrumental - a listener is certain to be deeply impressed by the very professional production, and first rate musicianship. I found it to be a very compelling arrangement of this time-honored Christmas classic. I very much look forward to hearing more great music from this exceptional musical artist!

Tune Ready For A Rock Christmas Album
This is a cover tune of the classic Christmas tune played in a Christian Hard Rock arrangement. So, you get the melody stated with overdriven/distorted lower/mid register guitar. Then there’s some doubling of the melody ona synthesizer. There are some stylized edgy guitar solo hyper-bend tremolo bar. So, I detect a guitar virtuoso amongst the group spreading the Gospel. You can tell the band is professional and knows how to play. The Monday morning quarterback in me, (arranging in hindsight)- says the tune short be shortened by a fade out or edit on the front end- song melody is repetitive. (Intending to be humorous -Like playing the 12 Days of Christmas melody for 16 days/verses). Other “Monday morning arranger” suggestions might include ideas such as -maybe a key change or two; A solo that develops a melody based upon the chord changes but doesn’t state the melody-(I listen to a lot of jazz). Again -professional band. Professional recording- IMHOP a bit too long, unless some additional musical devices are employed to reach the flock and beyond. Overall though-nice job-I could envision it on a Christmas compilation.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman (outfall) Instrumental
Awesome cover of Comfort and Joy (Right? I think that's what its called) I was pulled in from the first note because of the sound; First cover by this band (Really); Its amazing; Now you's guys have to make a whole album of holiday heavy metal Christmas music; I've always wanted to do that; Musicians only want to play holiday music during the holidays, I couldn't get anyone interested in July to put it out in November. Great sound, great mix; I'm about to play it again, that doesn't happen often with me. Ive got to say my favorite parts are the guitar solos with the wammy bar, I like the guitar players style, he probably gets told not to use so much tremolo or wammy bar; Well I think not, don't listen to them; He should go crazy with it and he's better than most; I want to hear this bands originals. I'll bet Outfall didn't want to ever do a cover, I'm glad they did; Great name too (song and band name); Hold onto that guitar player!!!

I like the production sound and originality. Good job!! I can feel the heart in this showing you put in some dedicated work.This track is a classic also very meaningful, I like the twist to it to make it yours! More artist should study the roots of their culture of art more to be better at their own art. Keep up the good work and stay in the lab creating new material to stay fresh and on your toes. If you're ever looking for a hip hop collaboration hit me up I'm versatile. Peace!

This was a great rendition of a Christmas classic! I especially enjoyed the electric guitar solos in this song. The drums seemed to be a bit off, but the bass guitar was. Keep up the great work!

Out of season?
Wouldn’t normally be expecting to listen to a carol out of Yuletide and season but here goes. Have to say it started off disappointingly and tried its very hardest to get out of the predictable rut but unfortunately although I can fully appreciate the artistry of the guitarist there’s only so much you can do with a familiar verse and chorus as this one and if as in this you use predominantly guitars and the distortion pedal to try and make a difference. I’m sorry it became predictable and monotonous I really don’t know what could havebren done to it to achieve any semblance of a tubular bells and Mike Oldfield effect. Sorry
