Plastic Dreams, Metal Pitchforks was one of the strangest songs on the first album. It only has one verse worth of vocals, yet it is sandwiched between two choruses that do not have any vocals at all. It's one of the only songs I've ever made (on ALL the albums) that actually stays within one or two genres. It's also the most complex track on the album, vocally speaking, and yet one of the simplest instrumentally.

So I expanded the genres a little, added some trance synths to up the energy, took out the copyright infringing intro and replaced it with pizzicato violin and viola, and rerecorded the vocals to make them even more varied and deep. Perfected the mix, then carefully mastered it until I got the version I just uploaded onto here. I think it's as close to perfect as I can make it.


This song is from the album The Strings You Trip Upon (REDUX) (2013, originally released in 2009)

I dreamed I was happy
I dreamed that I had a calm childhood
I dreamed I was normal
I dreamed that I knew exactly where I stood

But dreams have a way of lying
of leading you, then leaving when the fire comes
of showing you what could or couldn't be
Upon waking, you realize you're all alone

The tears drowned my self-confidence
and dignity was nowhere to be found
I imagined knives and nooses, pills
and traffic, it all appealed to me

I looked up and saw rock bottom
I started climbing towards the light I couldn't see
Nothing's happened the way I thought it would, but
that's okay with me. That's okay with me!


Awesome remake man! Takes me back.

This is just the first. I've started on Fungus Butt and Catherine's Chastity, but encountered lost files and unknown areas throughout, not to mention they're both hard as fuck to EQ anyway you know? So hopefully by the end of this year I'll have remade the entire first album at least, hopefully even the second or third also.
