AIM - Operation Fleshhunter


Author Comments

My entry for AIM2021 this year - Operation Fleshhunter.

EDIT: 1st Place Win!

I've been very limited in time for being able to do two full AIM tracks on time, so I've decided to finish this one off first (to the extent of getting this condensed down to under 5 minutes in concept) and do my other one outside of the AIM contest to perhaps finish off over the next 1-2 weeks. Due to time-constraints, I've had to cut vocals out of this entry and there's some small processing errors which i've done my best to hide.

Piece was influenced around 'Doomcommand' (artpiece below), the artpiece made by Kamikaye, who can be found here:

GREAT !!!!!!!!!:

Wow! 😳

This piece puts me directly in the picture in a way most music like this doesn’t, for me personally. Reminds me of the game Tron 2.0 from way back in 2003.

You deserve the first place award you got in AIM 2021. Awesome job!

This slaps! So many cool decisions on post to boot. Captured the image perfectly. Usually the guitar gets sacrificed a bit in tunes like this, but you managed to have it meld perfectly with the synths.

Im in love with your detuned synths. I like the vocal effects.

If I can slip any of my designed virus-esq patches into a project, I'll always take the chance to ;)

Too hell-bent to be made from a human ;)
I didn't know I needed guitars with your style but it fits so well

LD-W responds:

I've found working with guitars (in both a lib sense, or plugging one straight into interface and just doing basic riff work) naturally much easier from a compositional sense, although it's more of a challenge design-wise to get a *really good* tone out of it and does require some pretty hefty, usually expensive processing chains to really get it how I want it to. Mostly because I grew up on a metal background and that's something I've been familiar with far longer than my interests in Industrial and Cinematic-type genres. A project like this is pretty easy for me in a more Gordon-ish DOOM sense (without trying to have it sounding like a copycat either), as alot of the effort is in design and mix before anything else!

It's not big news at the moment, but I am working on a Black Metal solo-project over the next year or so (something I've always wanted to do, and I'm now in the confident position to pull it off). I'll reveal more about it soon ;)
