Rating:
3.0
Somber Eyes is a newly formed project spearheaded by 15-year-old Canadian Tanner Huotari, perhaps better known as local Metal Storm user BoxCar Willy. Unfortunately, this release feels like it was written by a 15-year-old.

Album of the year.....


This would only be correct in 1st April but otherwise no... not funny dude.

  This is not a Doom Metal Band. They just play their instruments very "Slowly". Not Black (metal) at all but caused me a Black out.

The wood was not dead until listening to the second track - Deadwood.

Ya, like I said in my review, this is more of a contemporary folk record with some growls scattered throughout and a few minutes or of legitimate riffs.

I think the aim might have been black/doom, but it definitely isn't anywhere near that.

Just trying to raise Tanner's self esteem, i'm sure he'll improve greatly in the near future, especially with all the "constructive" criticism people are giving him.

Boy was I wrong

For that you need layers, just do more of the same then start piling it on top each other. At worst you'll end up with a noise record

Rating: 1 Maybe take the finding forrester approach...copy the brilliant work of someone else to find your own originality. Cause although the sound was... original, it definitely needed many more hours of work to polish it up. This being said, I'm musically retarded, so kudos for making an album that you can call your own.

Basically you are a good guy, you even finished listening.
Your review reflects the facts. This album reminded me of Ryan Reynold's movie - Buried.
Basically nothing inside-blank. I wanted to rate 0, but it was not polite to do so that's why I rated 2. After seeing BCW rated himself 7, I regretted my kindness given away so easily.

  I think my "good old friend" Boxcar Willy his/her band is/are talentless.I can't listen her stuff from the start to finish,
because she has 0/ZERO musical talent.She hasn't age problem but she has serious talent problem.The most ridicolous moment is
her "voice" in the"Midwinter Burial" (hahaha ridicolous as hell!!!).Her stuff is pathetic and miserable.He or she can't play the
instruments.This stuff is the most boring,awful,MINDLESS thing ever without feeling.I have an advice Bcar W.; Give up your
music carrier because you're incredible talentless! Your thing is not music because this is a different noise collection by a random
way.A lawnmower can create far better music than you.Don't waste your time! Play video games maybe you can do that better.

Troi or Troy! I think you're the worst rewiever ever.You're musical talent is ZERO or BELOW ZERO.Try to enjoy the Somber Eyes(Boxcar Willy).
Troy! I have an advice: Give up your rewiever function because you' re not important in the music history.And learn to behave!!
Because you're very boring and pathetic.

So what if this album is the biggest turd of the century. I am going to stand by what i thought was decent, even if it isn't.

Thanks for the pep-talk Troy.

How long have you been playing for man? I remember making some recordings when I was 15 which I thought were cool but upon later inspection thought they sucked some serious balls . Ok now I'm going to go all philosophical on yo ass.
I'm now a far more accomplished musician than I was, I put it down to a huge expansion in musical horizons. Through passively and somewhat sub-consciously analysing the music you listen to on your continually evolving musical journey you will begin to develop an adept musical perception, almost like your brain has finally unravelled the formula to successful composing (yes there is a musically correct formula for 'good' music it is not simply all based upon 'taste', this formula is incredibly complex it's not simply x+y=good music).
This in my mind is the key, so basically my advice keep is to exploring music, atone and familiarise your brain musically in an abstract array of tuneful stimuli and it will all seem to come naturally. It's like learning a new language eventually your artistic vision will just spew out. Hopefully this didn't come off as a load of pretentious non-sensical drivel, it's kind of a topic that needs to be discussed over some sort of recreational drug .

Well this was released in March, so 3 months on the elctric, and about a year (with a couple month break in there)

I've improved soooo much already, it's ridiculous. And your philosophical approach seems like iot could do some good

Good, because I'll be illegally distributing copies. Thanks for making me rich.
