Silk lines over metal riffage

This is my entry for the March/April MAC12

* The writing idea here was to combine riffs and leads, and let you choose which to listen to.

* Writing included alot of layering, my favorite afterall. Wrote 8 guitar parts layered into the chorus alone.

* In Post, I made sure each of the million parts could pop; some parts just a little.

* The recording process had some work too. Lots of mics, slight movements.

* I even magnet swapped the lead guitar mid-song for the most subtle effect that couldn't be bought with EQ.

* Yes...I tore open my guitar, removed a pickup, and swapped a part in it to carry on.


WELL, I've said too much already. Just go for it =]
....Solo at 2:20



It made me...(fill here with ear gizzing lines). There's only ONE thing that got my attention: the guitar wasn't loud enough during the solo! The guitar's suppost to cry, and take the lead, toning down all other instruments. Let it be known there was a solo, you know? I didn't really notice it was a solo until until 2:42. It may be a bad example, but check the solo from 5:30-6:00 on dragonforce's song-operation ground and pound. Yes we know a lot of their music isn't real, but they make it clear which instrument is soloing and when. So to put it simply, tone that GUITAR UP MAN! >:D and...Rock on! (pumps fist)

Hahaha lmao@dragonforce reference
Sorry bud; I've actually been guilty of making solos too loud or over compressed or ducked everythig else via sidechain.
Guess I just wanted all the parts to shine
Thanks for the review!

Next one will kill. As we will be making it (somehow)

This is absolutely awesome!!
Keep making songs like this, please :D
im not even going to waste time giving you 'constructive feed back', you know full well how you put this together, and you know its so good my ears will probably start bleeding.

Do everyone a huge freaking favour and have a crack at writing tabs or sheet music or make a video tutorial or SOMETHING.
I want to play this with my band.
Its fucking amazing.
