I haven't made it more than 70 seconds and I love the bass already...oh, and a serious bass lead-in driving a heavy a$$ riff that lays the foundation for the solo. The dual guitars are tight, the drumming varied, and the vocals mesh wonderfully with the whole. Brilliant job, gentlemen, and I can't wait my order to move from pre-order to shipped.
