What's up Newgrounds?!

While it hasn't been a LONG time or anything, it's been a while since I've dropped a fully-formed, original metal song on here.

Yeah, Burn7 has been slacking. And no, Burn7 isn't going to continue to talk in the 3rd person like some weirdo who was in a terrible bus accident and now has to walk around with his head in a sling. Burn7 will calm down now.

So this is a complete reimagining of one of my earlier works, Torn Asunder. I was originally going to just do a complete cover, but I ended up cutting out quite a bit and extended a few things. So this song is much more a collection of mosh-ity riffs and melodic harmonies than a full-fledged song.

I used similar distortion settings on my amp and tried to mix in the way I would have before. It's sort of odd, I actually really like the way this song turned out sounding even though it's quite different than some of my more current works.

Try and listen for the hidden cowbell!*

*Kewl Random Musical Stuff*
- 12 Rhythm Guitar takes
- 32 Lead/Solo Guitar Takes
- 0 Bass Takes (Yeah, that's right. This song has no bassline. Bet you didn't even notice until I told you, either.)
- If you listen around 4:00, I dropped some fakie hexi-kicks into the drum part.
- My bass kick is boosted around 20db at 5283Hz with a punchy distortion to give it the bite right where I want it.
- This song has no compressors or brickwall limiting.
- While writing this song, I discovered how to mute the cymbals in my drumkit VSTi, Addictive drums. You can hear me playing around with it at 0:39 and again at 0:49.
- If you open the .mp3 file for this song in any Sony audio editing application, you can view my notes and markers for the song.
- At 3:52, there are actually 9 different guitars playing at once. It's not that uncommon to multitrack rhythm parts, but I multilayered everything I could here. There are 4 rhythm guitars, 2 lead guitars, and 3 solo guitars. And, unless my calculator is lying to me, that's 9. But I really try not to trust anything that's solar-powered.
- No legal drugs were taken during the creation of this song. I did, however, consume 4x the recommended weekly dose of caffeine in under 8 hours to finish it.

*There is no hidden cowbell in this one. It's the first time in like 8 metal songs I haven't used one and... well, quite honestly it feels weird not having it in there. It's like somewhat of a signature move now or something.

WOW!

This reminds me of Trivium :D I love that band.
And...
This...
Song...
ROCKS!
You can't say no to this baby :D Add some vocals and you get a record deal :D Then I'd be happy to buy your album.


Burn7 responds:

OMG Trivium is my favorite band!

Comparing me to them is like the greatest compliment anyone has ever given me.

We're best friends now.

I know how a triple bass drum setup can help with a metal song and lends itself amplifying awesomeness in the arena of rock. But with constant engagement of the bass drum, it sounded like an m60 machine gun was going off throughout your song. It was very distracting. And in a Metal showcase, this would rock my socks off, but I think it distracts in this contest. I feel like your guitars were ruined by the drums and the drums were drowned out by the beat. Like too much was going on. This melody was effective in pulling out a sense of desperation. When the beat was limited to single bass drum hits, is when I feel like the song was most effective. The final mix down lacks a low and high frequency range. I hear a lot of mid range, like I'm listening to FM Radio instead of MP3 format. Maybe the mix suffered from just too much stuff going on and too many tracks of instrumentation. I would be curious to hear the source, large format file. Anyhow, good song. It rocked. But lacked what I think this contest was looking for. 8.5

Damn Burn!

Don't worry Burn! ThermalLaser knows how it feels to be slacking!
Anyways, you got a real cool crazy fading intro. That kinda shit builds suspense! You know?
I really like that recurring melody you have created (first happening at 00:10).
The lone guitar panning followed by the full pan is an important aspect to metal music and you fucking nail it brilliantly several times!
Totally digging the harmony at 1:50!

OOhhhh those leads at 2:57ish are pretty fucking awesome! Rhythm after that is epic as fuck! dammmmnnnnnn! That ending was intense! BOOM! That's the good stuff man! I just fell out of my seat and hit my head against my desk! I'm bleeding heavy metal right now man and it was fucking worth it!

Sorry my thoughts were all over the place. I was trying to write while listening to it again! And what the hell no cowbell man? That's not like you! I'm going to look for the original now so uhhhh.... yeah! Keep it up Burn!


Burn7 responds:

I don't even know how I manage to get things done because of how awesome slacking is. Seriously, it's the next next thing to something actually productive!

Thanks :D

(And I know, I'm seriously the winner of slacking for the cowbell bullshit I just pulled right there. I can't believe something like that)

Hahaha this song is pretty sick man - it's intense as all hell!

also screw what FrozenFire says - it doesn't have to trigger all towers - this is an awesome metal song :P

nice and clear too - good job!

10/10

-shawn-


Burn7 responds:

Hah! Well thanks dude. Even though I got 3'd and a 1/2 place (that's what I'm calling it dammit), this was a damn fun contest to be in.

I'm sad I couldn't beat out all the electronica submissions, but at the same time it makes sense that they would fit more into the STD game.

Glad you enjoyed it though dude! Keep fucking being awesome!

I do a Review! :D

Another awesome Jam by B7!
+ Your breaks are great.
+ The speed definitely encourages this to be a tough song.
- The problem with the heavy metal genre by itself is it does't really cover the Blue tower. (I Choose You! had some random pokemon effects and 8-bit parts that fixed that issue)
+Epic ending to the song (Need to go out with a boom on Symphonic!)


Burn7 responds:

Hrm... Interesting...

So let's say I multi-layered a chime or another high-timbre instrument over/within one of my hats/crash cymbals. Would that activate the tower? Just a thought :P

But I can see how this could be a problem. I personally would love to see more Hard Rock and Metallicious stuff in STD (God I love using that acronym hahaha), but if it doesn't fit well within the game or doesn't contain the elements required, then it just wouldn't work.

If perhaps I threw in a few tinny synths here or there maybe that would change things, but I think that's something that I may have to keep in mind for next time. I should just go straight for Metechnal, my super special word for Metal and Techno, next time. :)

But I'm glad you liked it for what it was though, thanks!
