Fuck this song. It can go die, and if I'm ever playing it live, it's probably through obligation and not because I want to. I hated this song so damn much, especially while I was recording it. It's not that it's hard, or technical, it's just annoying, and I hate it. *sigh* The riff came courtesy of Metallica again. I always wanted the main riff of "That Was Just Your Life" off Death Magnetic to have double time drums under it, but it never did. I think it sounds better with double time drums, but, hey, what can you do? Ultimately I chose to write my own song that was in a similar vein, but used double time drums for the main riff instead of normal time drums. I think it's a strong composition, but I still hate it. Hope you enjoy it more than I do! :)

Siiiick. That's some pretty nice riffage you got there. Solid mix too! I still use my UX1 when I record heavy. They're extremely underrated, but UX1+2 damn sure deliver those skull crushing tones [5/5] from me!

AlphaStormMusic responds:

Thank you very much! This one sucked to record, I guess I'm really not as good at this kind of riffing as I thought I was when I wrote it lmao.

And on account of the UX2 I used in this: I'm very opinionated about how much I hate it. I won't get too deep into it, but I've had too many fatal audio crashes with it when I was using it. It's fine, it worked, but I really needed something... better for what I wanted to do.

Either way, thank you very much for the review!!! :)

Best and take care!
