I started recording this song as something of a technical exercise. The intention being to try and get as close to the original as possible, particularly the drum parts. NIN tracks of this period often have many-layered goings on in the drum tracks which is why they sound so good, so this was a worthwhile exercise. Too bad it was pretty disastrous. There's a particular piston-like hissing sound in the drum track which I made a total hash of trying to emulate. The result was about three or so drum tracks which still managed to sound weak and made the main guitar riff just sound wrong. The guitars also sounded muffled despite me trying to make them as trebly as they were in the original. If you have a morbid fascination in what a demo of a demo sounds like (since everything on here is strictly speaking a demo) then you can check it out elsewhere. But I really can't recomend that you do. You have been warned.

So I once again reminded myself what a great track the original was and that I really should salvage what had been a pretty disastrous first recording session. The only things that were kept over from the demo were the keyboard parts and the drone guitar at the end of the rock bit. The order of the day was changed to just getting the thing finished and not attempt any fruitless technical exercises.

The guitar is hitting a certain note too low, in sync with guitar other string pulls. I'm not very music savvy, it still sounds badass, that's my judgment of music.

"The guitar is hitting a certain note too low, in sync with guitar other string pulls." I dont have the faintest idea what you're trying to say. Glad you enjoyed it though, I guess.
