    Very impressive. The first site I haven't clicked "skip intro" on in a while. Nice work.

    I am not a big fan of 100% flash based sites at all it has to be said.

    This one loads quicker then most, but still fairly slow and it is annoying that you have to constantly see the loading screen.
    Basic HTML sites just load a lot quicker and easier.

    Now I have actually got on it.
    It is very bright, and the content box in the middle is very small and needs to stand out more because at the moment you have a site that's background stands out more then the content.

    Calm it down a little and simplify it all. The navigation is small and hard to find because it doesn't stand out enough. Make all the text and especially the main text bigger so you visitors can read it.

    It is a good site, and well done so I am being extra picky.

    However although it is good, it is nothing you can't get from just using basic HTML apart from the banner.

    Rethink the colours, layout and size of it all.

    Good luck,
    Daniel.

    Sounds critical i know, but I am being more picky because it is good.

    Sorry if I sounded harsh or a pratt.

    100% Flash sites aren't good for everyone, but for a band, I could be a little more understanding. Also, this site couldn't be done in HTML, the entire backgrounds are animated on some of the pages. People visit a band's website for fun, so they aren't expecting a corporate looking site. This is a very fun website IMO.

    Yeah, soon after I thought about that a little, but I wasn't really looking at it from that point of view I guess. Being a little narrow with how I was looking at it.

    I just prefer a little more simple sites, but like I said above, I was being picky, it is fairly good.

    Each to their own.

    Cheers,
    Daniel.

    I will admit the graphics on this site are over the top - but it is certainly intended to be that way. A demand from the band members themselves! If you listen to their music you will see their niche is a powerful, theatrical styled music, and so the website needed to mirror that "over the top" feel.

    It's funny you mention the text area being too small.. I once had it larger and the band complained it was covering up too much artwork!

    It's all about the band.. (o:

    Hehe, a lot of the music on your site reminds me a bit of Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure, very different and refreshing. As for the site being OTT, the music is OTT (in a good way) so the site should be! That is one of the best sites Ive seen in an a while.
