Our final ranking: 4th place! We made it to the finals! :)

So we made one hell of a jump this last week (probably helped that we spammed people during our gigs as well  :P). Anyway, I want to thank you guys very much for voting. (y)

Of course, you all live too far away to come and see the finals, but we'll try to get some recordings for you. :)

Cool. Now you need to win it all, get a sweet recording contract, go on tour, come to Seattle.

All so I can see a show  8)

Late reply: they said they would put the shows online afterwards, but so far they haven't done so. :( I can show you some bootlegs from a mobile phone, but I'm afraid that's all we got at the moment.

And hey, at least we did make the finals, that gave us a lot of media coverage already (winning would have been the icing on the cake, but oh well.. juries generally don't seem to like prog very much so we didn't really expect to win anyway.)

For the ones that are interested:

Calculated - New Horizons

New vid, might be a bit dark, but you can hear the song ;)

We didn't post much updates here at all, but right now we have 1 gig a week & we made 2 new songs (no video online..yet!). Also we're gonna record a new EP soon!

So yeah...things are going very nice :)

I listen to these while I'm browsing around and drinking my coffee first thing in the morning. So no offense, but I don't care about the quality of the vids the first time I listen (you guys are ugly and I want to keep the coffee off my computer monitor  ;D)

When New Horizons started I thought I was listening to Lunatic Fringe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqUa_G1h3pw

The Acoustic cover of Mercy, I was kinda zoning out on a thread and wasn't really paying attention, then it snuck up on me and I thought I was listening to an old Bob Dylan song

The Lunatic fringe intro is similar indeed (but the rest of the song isn't obviously).

I can hear a familiar sound... a scent....a touch of early Pink Floyd  8)
This is good, Oostrums!


On a side note: Merlijn! Left(?) handed guitar... how about having the strings upside down as well?...

Thanks! Yeah, there's certainly a Pink Floyd vibe going on in New horizons (especially the first part, the ending gets a bit more 'metal' 8))

And guess what, my strings are indeed upside down.  :P

Tracklisting:
A new message (intro)
The dissident
New horizons
Into the dirt
The messenger
Another side

(last 2 songs are new, we wrote them a few months ago).

Enjoy the music!  :D

Heh, I guess that's a pretty accurate description. :) One major influence on 'The messenger' was the song Stargazer by Rainbow, and that band also had Richie Blackmore on guitar.
