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 >___>



Now that's a mighty fine live recording right there. Only one mic. with the drums? Woah, for that, it sounds mighty fine sir. Compression ftw in any case. ;)

The kick drowns a little in the mix, yes but for only using one fucking mic. it's a better sound what others can do with a hole set. Guitar sound is boob on as always. I kinda like to make something like this as well. Simplicity can be soo fucking addicting. >:D

Also...I like the kinda chaotic beat change at 0:48. Overall I say it was a good old cptnfuckhead recording. Cool to hear more fucking metal from ya! \m/



Man I haven't seen you around in ages. Glad to see your still alive.

Anyway, I'm guessing it's you on drums? if so great job with the playing. Though the kick got really hard to hear in some sections, even though you already know that, I just felt like pointing it out. I really love the snare though. Guitar sounds nice and thick, not going the direct method anymore when recording? Were you using an sm57 for the guitar? I'm looking into mics for micing my amp, so any tips/suggestions would be awesome.

Anyway man, nice to see you kicking around again. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of you around.

Dude, I just came a little.
How the fuck do you get that tone? The whole thing was fucking awesome. Did you have the pig squeals going on this? Fuck man. Brutal. Loved it.

Tone = SM58 about 20cm's away from the speaker cone. Possibly. It might have been pushed right up against the grill...I can't quite remember. But yeah...nothing special, just threw the mic down and started recording XD.

Did have some pig squeals on this, but I think my voice is starting to go in my old age XD
