More Testament-style metal! I love this song. Even though this is one of my longer songs, it only took me 2 days to complete. I was thinking "Well, I'm bored, so why not make another song? I've got a lot of ideas in mind" Haha. Heavy riffs, more harmony in the solos, this song is pretty heavy. Here's a fun fact; The first 20 seconds of the song are actually freestyled. Those first two riffs weren't even written until they were recorded, i hit record, then decided to play whatever came to mind. :P Rest (excluding solos) is improvised though. First 20 seconds were a one take freestyle.

But yeah, I really hope you guys enjoy this one, it was a lot of fun to do. There's a really interesting power/traditional heavy metal type part at one point.



pretty damn sweet. i liked the passage around 2:43, made a nice contrast. good song, i enjoyed

Awesome, man! Glad you liked it! Haha yeah, the sudden change in style at 2:43 is pretty abrupt, but actually fits quite well. Thanks man!

Fucking epic Love the sound of the guitar

Metallica1136 responds:

Awesome, man! Glad you like the tone! Thanks!

-Love the name of this song! The song its self is really made too. Love the bass. What kind of guitars do you use, and how do you make them sound so good?
-the rifts that starts at 1:56 are awesome. Especially when the chords come in.
-it starts feeling like a desert at 3:27! Not physically, but you know what I mean!
-nice bass rhythm at 4:36. It's hard to explain why i like it so much, but I'm gonna try anyway. It has a nice slow badass feel to it.
-I didn't touch up on everything I like about this song because It would be too much pausing and rewinding, takeing up alot of time. It's a really good song, and I've heard the whole thing all the way through, which is rare for me with long songs.

Keep it up!


Metallica1136 responds:

Awesome, man! I'm really glad you like it! Yeah, I gave it that name, because, it's like relieving all your anger and stress, except angrily and aggressively rather than calmly.

Glad you like the sound of the guitar and bass tone! :D I use Guitar Rig 5 for all of my songs, I rarely use other VST's. I always use the Big Monster preset for rhythm guitar. I used to use Big Monster for solos too, but I use either the Echolead or Solo Delay 51 presets for solos. (Echolead on this track.)

Haha, that "desert" sound that you speak of comes from the use of the harmonic minor scale. It's a really good scale for both riffs and solos. I use it often now. :D

Thanks man, I'm glad you like the bass as well. I use the "Clean Bass" preset on this song. I might go back to the Basic Jazz though, it has a fatter tone, but it just doesn't mix as well as Class Bass. meh

Haha, I'm glad you listened to the whole thing! Thanks for your review man! I have no idea why I make my songs so long now lol
