YaboiMatoi - Apex Element


Author Comments

Full Experience of the song with me jumping around live like an idiot:

My goal with Apex Element was to make a 'Bandcamp-worthy' song and I felt like my standard 2-3 minute songs wouldn't cut it.

I tried to push myself and make a longer, more interesting and energetic piece, which pushed it to the desired 4 minutes that I was aiming for.

Another goal that I set for myself was record and edit video for this song, with me playing it.
Now, I know this is the stupidest platform to upload but you can see the video in the link above.

I was also working on my tones, including all: bass, rhythm and leads but spending the most time on drums and I'm pretty happy how they turned out.
There's still room for improvements and as always I'll further strive to apply them in my following pieces.

I've been keeping track of how much time I needed for each part of the making of the song, to see what parts I should work on more to be equally as time efficient. The ridiculous thing is that the video editing took me 11 hours, but that's because of my stupid habit of cutting between video tracks.
Cost me a few skipped nights as well, but that's what pretty much every track I've done so far consists of so eyyy!

Hope you enjoy!

Awesome metal instrumental!
I feel like it is much better off without any vocals.

YaboiMatoi responds:

Hell yeah, man!
I always thought if I could somehow approach vocals in my stuff but it's not like I can sing or anything haha.
I'm glad you enjoy it! Thanks! :D

A really good piece ! The part i like the most is when all instrument drop and then the music start again like an explosion.

YaboiMatoi responds:

Thanks so much!
I was playing around with reverse cymbals and stumbled upon this effect by accident.
I'm glad you like it! :D
