"This Mangled, Rotting World..." - Zach Norman (me), Jakeisdead, BardOfBlasphemy Collaberation

This is the finished collaberation between me and fellow musicians "Jakeisdead" and "TheBardOfBlasphemy;" Here is how we split up roles in this little tune:

Me: Rythym and Lead Guitars, Mixing and Editing.

Jakeisdead: Drum programming, Bass Guitar.

TheBardOfBlasphemy: Lyrics & Vocals, and Chose the Song Name.

Here are their NG profiles so you can check out their sick tunes as well:

everything now, a shade of grey
lost its magic - ain't it tragic
regurgitate and hit replay
automatic gimick addict
innocence didn't last a day
dirty habit - naughty rabbit
watch the world as it rots away
filthy maggots chew and mash it

insides worn out - patch the leak again
new age burn out - wasted lives away
thieves' lies caught out - broken dreams replay
progress in doubt - corporation games rot the world away

the world may end in flames
to be rebuilt again
despite the death and pain
the fools would rule the same

this mangled rotting world
will sink into the sea
and in its place shall rise
this mangled rotting world

this mangled rotting world
will sink into the sea
and in its place shall rise
this mangled rotting...

I don't know what to say

other than this song kicks some serious ass! It reminds me of something you would hear on Metalocalypse! I can't believe that this song hasn't gotten more listens.. It is a serious shame! Keep on rockin!

thanks man! \m/


yeah man, this is the chuggy kind of riff i was talking bout in cast to the sky, fucking love the intense ryhtems man awsome

Deathcalypse responds:

THanks man! \m/

Nice work guys

Wicked style on the lead guitar and the vox are strange, but great. It doesn't need to shread to be metal, nice solo. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to work on my game project. Peace, bros.

Thanks man! \m/

Interesting vox, for sure

I gotta give it to you, although the lyrics are a bit cliche for metal, the sound of the vocals are definitely not. It kinda reminds me of something from Dark Tranquility. However, I was hoping for just little bit of singing at some point, mixed in with the grunting screaming (of course, that could just be personal preference; I tend to like the screaming style of guys like August Burns Red and We Came as Romans more, it just sounds cleaner to me...just personal preference). Still, love this song in its entirety. Very good mix; I wish I could produce something this well-mixed.

Deathcalypse responds:

Well the genre you are more into then is metalcore. This is more of the deathcore style, that usually has no singing whatsoever. But thanks for the score


I love the sound of this. Super clean but still super crunchy. It's just a sweet tone and sound all around.
Vocals are sick, guitar work is nice.
Nice panning on the vocals too, most people attempt that and it sounds horrible but it sounds good on this track.
I would have kept the timing with a crash and not a splash cymbal though. The splash kind of thins the song too much and doesn't fit with the fullness of the beat and guitar.
Still totally awesome.


Deathcalypse responds:

Thanks dude!
