Honeybee by Tara Vaughan

Cool ideas and vibes happening here. I thought the first chorus could have come in sooner, or some sort of hook earlier on to catch the listener right away. I can picture some bending guitar notes far in the background towards the end as well, giving the track closure, and to vibe with the westernish guitar licks happening. Good voice and original ideas. Nice job.

Revolt by The Unravelling

Didn't quite know what genre of music to expect when hearing the first few bars of music! Not that is a bad thing. Very NIN vibes going on here and production is solid and guitars are heavy. If your main mission is to push this song for licensing opportunities, you'll want to make sure you have instrumental versions of the song on hand as well as a clean version. I could see this fitting in really well on some WWE wrestling series or intro. Video game placements would also be a great avenue for the instrumental music. Keep it up! The artwork is great and ties in with the music being a modern electronic/heavy rock combination. Nice work here.

Interesting emotion and vibe going on here. I would definitely see this track in an emotional movie/tv scene and could be successful in the licensing realm of things. Definitely work on getting this out to some music supervisors and let them know you're available for some original recordings as well. 

Nice job.

Seeing What's Next (Preview) by Hollywood Principle

Good preview of the song here. Definitely a very popular style in music today. Try your best to reach out to blogs and websites on your own for exclusive features and premieres. I hate to see younger bands paying big retainers to PR companies with no guarantees. Don't stop at just digital promotions either, there is something very valuable about promoting the music with flyers etc at festivals and other related music events in your genre. Good luck!

Great production..chorus vocals are solid and layered well. Bridge of the song brings a nice change of vibe. I like the lead guitar showing up in the last minute or so bringing it all back to the intro. I think the intro vocals bring a powerful message and meaning to the song, but possibly would consider removing for potential opportunities in sync licensing. The title of the song could possibly be confusing for some listeners, I thought I was going to be pulling up a hair metal band based on 'Gunz N Rosez'. Thank you for sending and great work!

Intro of this is great, definitely draws my attention right in. I liked the addition of the different layers when that same riff comes back in a couple minutes later. Those minor notes are throwing me off a little bit but definitely gives it an eerie vibe mixed with the bangin riff. 

I could see this having good licensing potential, not sure if that female vocal is a sample or not? I would suggest removing it if it is to make this track clean and clear. 

Nice work!

Moonwalker by Foresterr

Interesting sound...! Didn't expect the screaming to come in when it did, reminds me of sounds like Circa Survive, The Fall of Troy, Converge, Poison The Well.. Some early 2000's hardcore presence with the breakdowns. HEAVY! Keep on trucking and thanks for sending.
