I had this concept to bring Johann Sebastian Bach to a new Audience, give my Metal Rendition of them. I am pretty happy with how this came out/

This first one is Contrapuntus I and II from BWV The Art of Fugue

Let me know what you think I will be making more of these.


is this even heavy metal?

because it sounds like tecno to me. this is more like heavy metal in my opinion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMJnW7 t5ec4 . apart from that, its relativly good music.

Sandman1278 responds:

interesting, I never would I have considered this to be techno, but it seemed to to fit in general rock, disturbed is awesome by the way.

Great idea!

This is a wonderful chorale, I love what you've done with it! The synthy sound in the background is pretty hard to make out, I'd recommend removing some of the distortion and bring it up a little closer to the front of the mix. These Chorales are meant for all 4 voices to be heard. You could experiment with panning different parts.

All in all great job, and a good way to study some good ol' fashioned Bach!


If you have a minute I'd love your input on my latest piece, ST Suspense!

Sandman1278 responds:

Actually this is a fugue not a choral, but I am sure I will do some of those eventually,

I will play around with the syth, and probably with some panning, they are already panned but I guess to slightly.

Thank you for your imput

not my style of music

its not really my style, and could sound better. I never heard the originals so i dont know if it supposed to hurt my ears at certain parts. but since I like to get reviews on my songs I decided to give somethingback to NG and not be a total hypocrite. You know though.. after 2:00 its sounds nice! it obviously could have better sounds that u used but it still works. still not my style. hehe i gave u a 4 on the vote. that seems fair, right?

Sandman1278 responds:

Wow, thanks for the quick response, I wish I had some better sound banks then what I have in logic but I do what I can, were exactly do your ears hurt in certain parts? So i can try to fix it?

if you want to here what the original sounds like, there is a link at the bottom here.
