Road Rage Review:
Drawing deeply from the well of Hard Rock, PayDirt delivers an all-original ode to freeway fury with their song "Road Rage"! Kicking the track off with a sonic fender bender, PayDirt quickly drops a massive wall of deeply driving distortion - pairing massive instrumental intensity with a lyrical exclamation of wrath towards those ever-impinging pavement pilots with nowhere to be and all the time in the world to get there.
Great sound all around! From the introductory SFX to the fullness of sound in the vocal and instrumental performances, "Road Rage" feels massive and well-polished! The instrumental and vocal tones are perfect for the genre, harkening back to the legends that forged the field while retaining a sense of individuality and authenticity that promise to establish PayDirt as an original entity. Huge bass snarl, and a killer guitar solo! Lyrically and tonally, the song manages to be both amusing and intense; appealing to a variety of listeners in a multi-faceted approach.
"Road Rage" combines a premise and a performance style that stand to resonate well among a wide range of listeners - with the creative efforts of PayDirt promising to earn the attentions of nearly anyone who listens in! Fans of hard-hitting bluesy Rock will fall headlong into the sound that PayDirt is crafting, and anyone with experience behind the wheel will find an appreciation for the amusing and all too familiar perspective illustrated in the dirt-laden anthem, "Road Rage"! - Jon W.

Reviews for our song Waiting for April:
“I really like this one! The beginning had that crescendo, and it sounded quite nice to my ears! I like the instruments used, especially the guitar, and the vocals are tranquilizing. This has a more real sound to it, which I actually enjoy. I give this a precise 7 out of 10.”
“The guitar is so romantic sounding at first and the build adds character. The strums add loads and loads of character. The synth pads sound crystal clear. The mix and master is great. The singer has a nice tone on the beat. The stringish sounds compliment aswell.”
