Tried out a single micing technique on the drums, then compressed the shit out of them for a really dirty, hard hitting sound. Kicks get a bit muddied, but are still surprisingly noticeable.

Then just layered a single random guitar track over the top. Didn't shoot for anything fancy, both with micing technique and playing technique ;D.

Did have vocals, but they sucked >___>



I love all the grit.

This is dirty, heavy noise rock at its best.

Good grind,

I love the drum sound. Truly an underground slamming sound. If the kick were a little more tight, it would be the ideal drum sound.

Perfect snare count off. So punchy.

nice nice nice

like what youve done with the compressor

was the mic compressed or did you do it in the master?

and also which compressor and mic did you use ?

Recording was two mono tracks (one guitar, one drums) panned centre. Just a compressor strapped across the drum track to make it really pump. No other effects as far as I'm aware, apart from maybe some EQ.

Microphone was a shure SM-57...hence the trashy sounding drums hahaha. But I kind of dig it, in a real DIY grind kind of way :]

The compressor was the one that comes default with Sony Acid Pro. I don't know why, but I really like how dirty it is. It's wicked for slamming the life out of anything. But yeah, we just took it from Acid and used it in Nuendo instead ;D

Ummmm, once the track was mixed down, I probably would have opened it up in t-racks and limited the buttz out of it to get it as loud as possible. Also the t-racks EQ is pretty fucking gnarly :)

shit man...

this is brutal... it's dirty, rough and gutsy. love your gear... wish you'd put your vox over it, that would've capped it off...

make some more!

hey, if you get the chance, check out my latest track "skullfucked"... you won't regret it.

jarrydn responds:

Cheers man ;D

Actually checked your track out a couple of weeks ago. Wicked recording, but the lyrics hit a bit too close to home for me, which does skew my opinion of it somewhat.

A couple of months ago I probably would have had a good chuckle though ;D


!!!! i love brutality!!!!
