Wow, damn amazing, This reminds me so much of Pantera. I agree with what Demon-Slayer12 said. Are you sure you're not secretly Phil? Lol. really nice song, plenty of groove in it. 5/5
Haha thanks very much man. Glad you dig it, more on the way. :)
Frick. So much anger and rage. Dang brother let me review this.
So first off, groovy. I've never seen much of this grooving from you, seems like you're cleaning house and innovating, this is cool! It's interesting seeing you supplement your style to do something different but still vaguely the same. It's like a fresh twist of rage, I like it. It's only a touch of groove to your metal though, which is like a taste of lemon to some fine iced tea.
This broken jam of boomy stuff is really your forte. Your tone seems pretty dang good, did you get your tone issues resolved? It seems like the tone that you're using is pretty good by your standards. I can't help but notice that it's a bit more treble-y and has a bit more 'hiss' than your own tone, but despite a minor inconvenience it's still rocking like slow death. I recall that there was that tone pedal you mentioned once, but this doesn't exactly sound like it.
I notice that you've got some bass guitar in here. It adds some more bass to the bassey tone that you already have. Now if I had speakers, they'd get demolished by the sheer amount of bass that your songs put out. I like that, that's what I expect from Bad-Man styled metal.
I used a filter like that on my solos. I think it's a 4th or 5th octave higher. It's simple. Maybe you could steal Jonas again and you two could do a duo or something hahaha.
Your drums have some fills to them this time! Ahaha! I recall in The Rot I was making comments about that, and it seems like you changed that up, I like it. Cleaning house, man. It's moderate paced, like that jam sort of speed. Although here it's reworked to a slow death thing.
As I mentioned before, I'm jealous of your vocal style. It's just perfect, there's nothing that I need to really say about it. I notice that you use a bit of a different filter, I like it. It has that sort of submarine-announcer tone to it. Maybe one day, I'll abscond you from your stuff and I'll have you do some vocals on my stuff.
Anyways, it's good to see you back on the scene. Message me sometime if you want some more reviews.
Thanks for the uber review! Appreciate it! You don't always have to work so hard, I dig it, if you dig it. haha.
Yes, this is my old pedal, (or new version of my old pedal) I have all my old tones back.. I'm not using them here. I'm using some new sculpted ones, out of the old, and something else too. My taste for what my music is and was are two different things now. Joining a live band, has made me strive for a sound that is more ALIVE, than recorded. My old stuff, to me, sounds good, but it doesn't have that ...life, to it.
As for bass...our bands bass player has opened my eyes to the importance. Not just a deep drone in the background, but something dynamic to add to the song, rather than just supplement it. I'm no where near the bass player he is, but strive for a far better bass.
Drums. I have the best drummer on earth. Without question. Of everything I've learned over the last year, its that drums don't just carry a beat. As above, I strive for a more alive feel now. Our drummer would love to help me out and actually do the drums for these songs, but it is hard enough for us all to hook up for our own jams, let a lone a side project.
And as for vocals, I have really had to step up and improve them for my band. To equal their musicianship.. That helps me with my music a lot too...even if they are quite different genres. haha.
I'm relieved to hear that everything I've worked on is getting noticed. By the time I work on that movie soundtrack, I should have everything dialed, just the way i want it. :)
Cheers brother. Look for something new and heavier in the next week. Would appreciate your thoughts on that too.
Damn, son! nice song, loved the screamo kinda feel it had, to the first verses.
The song has kind of a Dimebag-ely kind of feel, with some Metallica thrown in, but with a lot of your own style =w= the guitar is quite awesome, congratulations on writing this.
Thanks dude, that is the road I need to travel! Cheers!!
hell yeah! that's some really heavy shit man. and you really do sound like phil during some parts haha! awesome as fuck! good to hear new stuff man, you fucking slay!
Haha, thanks man! More coming sooooon!
Sounds more like sludge than heavy metal.And I love sludge :)
i like the lyrics,like always theres some criticism and philosophy in it,
the vocals in the chorus could have been more ;;well how could i put this................
creative(?) in the way you pronounce the words
but still,love it ~~
ARRRGH matey! I pronounced the R on that intentionally to sound like a pirate, mostly because I was bored. If that is what you are talking about. haha.
Thanks Kup, glad you dig it. Sludge ftw.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
