This here's my attempt at writing a song around a drum track, which is a new experience for me.
I don't think it turned out half-bad, myself.
See thread here: http://www.newgrounds.com /bbs/topic/1046272 .
Thanks to gorgorothx, for the drum track (and possible contest!).

I know there are some fuckups in there; I only spent about 30 minutes writing riffs and recording, so I didn't learn my own riffs perfectly, lawl. Especially the breakdown... I think it sounds pretty cool, though.

Please, if you enjoy (or don't), leave me a review; I like feedback on my recording method as well as songwriting.

Metal! \m/

Sweet man. This was totally awesome. I was gonna wank with this one last night, but I haven't had any time to wank with my guitar at all.
Anyways, nicely fucking done, man. Dig your tone too.

Current Score

3.58 / 5.00 (+ 0.32)

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Thanks man. I like what you did with the first one; really cool shit.
We should turn this thing into one huge collab party, haha.
I think that, tonally, this is the best guitar work I've submitted here. I'm finally figuring out how to use cabinet impulses correctly, and it's making a big difference.
Anyway, thanks again, and I can't wait to hear you embarass me with your awesome guitar skillz.

Pretty raw if I must say. The distorted tones are really nice, though you're right about the breakdown. Still its really good for just coming off the top of your head over some drum lines.

TwilightNecrosis responds:

Thanks man.
I played around over the drum track 3 or 4 times, then hit record and went with it. I knew it was going to be rough, but i just wanted to throw it out there; mostly because I wanted to convince gorgorothx to continue making these jam tracks and/or start a contest.
Thanks for the review, man; you should try it out too, always room for one more.

Nice, dude!

For not planning very much, this turned out quite well ;) What interface do you use to record? Sounds effing awesome, dude... effing awesome. I will totally make this a contest, now. Cheers!! -Alex

TwilightNecrosis responds:

I'm glad you like it, man! Couldn't have done it without your awesome drum track.
I'm using a Presonus Audiobox USB, with a dbx dB10 passive direct box to record my guitar straight in.
For the distortion, I used 4 different amp models (2 per side) going through the same cabinet impulse (simultaneously... less CPU usage when you only have 1 keFIR running, as opposed to 4).
It's a decent setup; I'm a lot more happy with the dbx passive direct box than I was with the Behringer active box I had before.
The dbx's noisefloor is SO MUCH lower, it's almost embarassing.
Anyway, I digress. I'm glad you enjoyed, man. I'm waiting for the next one!
