This one is a bit different for me. I started out recording some random metal riff to test out some new tones. I ended up leaving my recording rig downstairs, and being too lazy to get it, I decided to finish the song using other methods. Thus parts were chopped, rearranged, stretched, and mutilated. Out of this madness, new parts were born.

I also decided to experiment with electronic drums, synth, and putting my guitar through a very loud and distorted bass amp.

Hope you enjoy!



drums on this track are kickass, im a drummer and im 16 and i think your awesome, it sounds like a mix of dethklok and maybe dimmu borgir/dew scented- harcore tho :)

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. If you liked this song, you should check out Animals As Leaders. That band is incredible.

I loved the intro.

The fade in and the stutter effect was used in a very nice and unique fashion. Good job on that. The rest that followed was just as great. Considered it D/Led and I'm definitely going to check out the rest of your stuff. Great first impression!


Spailpin responds:

Thanks dood!

very sky eats air-planeish towards the end

and also with the synths, i liked it alot very cool man very cool!


i love it! i would love to put some vocals on this but idk wat its about so if you could provide some vox or just give some inspiration and/or insight as to what this is about id cover it. thanx :D

Spailpin responds:

It's not really about much. I had a friend who was stuck at work and I started writing a song about it to keep her entertained. Feel free to throw some vocals over it though. That would be pretty awesome.


I would definately like to hear more stuff by you. I like your use of synth, as well as the dub-step-ish part at the end. I wasn't very crazy about the transition at 0:27. But all in all, not bad.

Check out my stuff when you got the time, as I will be looking into yours. :)

Thanks! I'll check it out right now. I see that you have a veil of maya cover which is awesome. This is my first foray into the electronic element, but I think I'll be incorporating it more in my future work.
