A friend of mine's hard rock/metal band in the UK. They have recently got together although have been on the scene for a number of years.

This was my first attempt...very stereotypical.

I like the overall concept but it looks as though the flash coverage is uneven. The central portion is brighter than the edges.

Not sure I like the guys being "cut off" just below the knees.
I find the bit of cloud coming out of the guy's head, one from the left a bit distracting .. but only a bit!
Perhaps you would have been better just getting the whole body in and losing some of the sky
JMHO

Something looks off in the white balance too? Particularly their skin tone?

...although just read these guys are UK...

You should have put a warm color filter on the flash as the sunset colors are warm, probably what make the color balance a bit off.

Photo is a tad crowded, you should have left a bit more space all around.

Hand of second guy from the left looks in a weird position.

Only did band promo photos once, that is quite hard IMO to get something cool out of it.
