I can't get into the rest of the EP at all. It's literally Overload and the rest are all skipped for me.


Well someone pitched it and sped it up to sound 'blinkier' I think I actually prefer the 'idea' of it.

Sorry, just seeing this now. I like the idea too, but it's a little too fast for me. Tom sounds almost chipmunk like. If it was slowed down about 25%, it'd sound pretty decent.

I'll always wonder what Mercenaries, Overload, and New World could have sounded like as a full blink take.

Weird to notice: On "The Disease" I was always curious if some of the higher harmonies/backing vocals were actually Tom, since he's never really had that range for many years now. The demos reveal that those are definitely Ilan while Tom sings the lower harmony.

"The Wolfpack" demo reveals that Tom's chorus is clearly pitched up. I think they lowered the chorus a half-step or whole step, had him sing the chorus, then pitch up his vocals again. The belch caught me off guard, too, and while it made me laugh I'm glad he left it off the final song, lol.

I said this to Ploppy in facebook chat but the wolfpack demo melody just instantly reminded me of this -


Not saying its an intentional rip off at all but fuck me its bloody similar. I can't really listen to it without thinking of that song, but its actually quite a lot better than the album version in some ways... kinda wish they stuck with it. Chorus sounds much better higher up but he clearly can't handle it vocally. I'll have to try the rest sometime.

Holy crap, my girlfriend noticed the same thing! It's pretty blatant.

The one she found/sounded like was the version done by The Knife.

DOWN TO THE INSTRUMENTAL this is so so so similar.

Alright. Color me intrigued. Anyone got a YouTube link or something to this??

Merci beaucoup monsieur!

Yeah. Totally agree that this is amazing. Like. Holy shit amazing.

I like his "natural" voice he's got going on. Like. It doesn't sound like him trying to force it.
