Testing out my newly tweaked recording setup.

Hagstrom Ultra Swede guitar was used for guitar, DI into preamp, into my A&H ZED R16
Drums are from Battery 3
Song made in Ableton Live 8, then mixed down OTB with Chorus Echo, analog eq, mixed down into Reaper, and mastered in Reaper.


Epic cavern metal?

I kid, but that's what this is reminding me of, something that takes the notion of a sort of sci-fi metal and runs with it excluding being space metal. Actually, scratch that a bit, maybe it could. :)

I like the sheer deliciousness, depth and atmosphere of this track, it's really involving to the listener. In my opinion this is a fantastic setup that you have tweaked up here. Everything sounds balanced and righteous.

I like the guitar tone, it's exactly suitable for this reach of genre. Nice and grindy, chugging all fine too.

Drums are snappy, and definately up to par, I especially like the snare, nice!

The choir assembly also has benefited from this setup here, fantastic, it sounds really cavernous, mysterious, echo-influenced, all around deliciousness.

I must make note though that this is the first submission that I've heard of yours, so therefore I don't have a point of reference in terms of prior submissions to compare to, but this is alread suitable enough.
