My longtime nickname is Weredragon, so Iam gonna act the song is for me. :)
This song is by and far my favorite metal song, I downloaded it here but if you released an album I'd buy it all over again just because I love this song. Its the rhythm, that little repeat that hits at 0:39 into it and repeats throughout. the perfect mix of guitar then transition to drum, I can't think of comparison good enough for this. And trust me I've had like a week to think of one, and still nothing. Tie=dye works but its not what I'm looking for.
I listened to the original to compare and this is my favorite version, its like crack for the ears. dangerous and addictive, the original was good, but it didn't have the right drum and bass sound to make me come back.
I just wanted to post this so I could tell you that this song fills me with awe and you are now one of my favorite musicians right up there with Metallica, and Judas Priest, if you threw a concert I'd definitely be there.
FUCK YEAH! Thanks man! It means a lot, I've been trying to get a band together, and to hear that someone would actually come see us? That's fucking sick.
I really did try to make the different instruments blend together well in this mix, MIXING IS HARD THO so not every individual piece stands out as much as I wish it would.
Just a straight up comparison to the first, it is in insane improvement. The mixing/mastering and placement of each drum piece, each guitar, and the bass are greatly improved. The first, the drums and bass guitar were very muddled and awfully heavy. This, the guitars are much cleaner and clearer. Each drums pieces is very distinguishable from the other, snare and kick particularly.
Great improvement made to about :35. Nice effect/addition there to fill in the emptiness that was there before. Also deeper drums help too. Right after, at about 1:05, the crazy drums, also great improvement from the original.
1:25, personally, I like the original better. It has a more "lully", dont know how else to describe it, feeling of just the guitars with minimal drums. I like the fullness that you put into the drums of the new one, just kinda liked the original.
Solo at 1:46, also like the original better. The old solo, the speediness, the specific rhythm pattern and usage, is just very your style. Possibly older style, maybe the new style is better? Plus the new solo continues the song, so... guess its better. But the solo does end, sorta abruptly.
But love the next sections rhythm pattern. The harmony is awesome. Plus, the great drumming to go in the back.
The panning of the guitars, for the next section, is always nice.
3:27, this is the great solo from the original that i was talking about. Then its breaks down into an awesome rhythm. And the drumming is ever-changing and so awesome! Lol with the random insane drum part that you always do.
I like the choice to bring it back to that original solo patterning to end with. And then it has that effect, and brings it back again. Its a nice little, loopty. Thats what i'm going to call it.
Anyways... hell of long review. Can't wait to hear the next additions:) Great song as always.
FUCK YES. I miss the days when you used to review my shit all-in depth and specific like this. It was insanely helpful.
