i'm just really not a fan of the whole "beneath the massacre" diminished masturbation licks phenomenon thing, and being erlend doesn't give you a get out of jail free card in that respect! some riffs were very good; those few reminded me of a shallow and pedantic record called psalms of the moribund ;)

I don`t like BTM myself , but i can see some of it being somewhat similiar, though I think the arrangement flows alot better. at least in my head, and when it`s recorded later, instead of having to deal with generic midi. I can`t even make out the riffs on psalms cause of the production, so doing rip offs on my part would be hard. but hey, they`re the shit nowadays, so I guess it`s a hit.
out jail for free card? I don`t think I`ve ever posted stuff earlier that I myself can entirely say I`ve made. So all in all I can`t take credit for any of the music I`ve put on cd`s over the years , and thusly if you think it sucks, it hasn`t been myfault. so far.

I am sure he is talking about your ability to masturbate the bass.

well, whatever floats your boat. I haven`t practiced these kinds of techniques in a quite some time. I just started making music that I myself would want to listen to. So I guess this is as good as it gets

As it should be, mate. An ever evolving process! Good that you can take critique as well, because I think it's stupid when someone posts something on the web (especially a MUSIC forum) and gets offended when someone has something to say about the music that isn't 100% dick-suck praise. Laudare... Laudavi...Laudatus?

hehe ofcourse. Music is a totally objective thing, so if someone doesn`t like it that`s fine. I only "argue" back because my feelings for the stuff I do and the time and understanding I put into it is pretty personal. I guess it`s like someone saying your kids are ugly for some people , so I get it. But still, we`re merely talking about sound put into system here. it`s no big deal.

Totally understood... I see that all the time, hard work and dedication put into a piece of music or album... Like Defeated Sanity's "Psalms of The Moribund" for example.. the hard work and sweat they put into that album, only for some people to say "I hate it because of the production" Pretty shitty deal if you ask me.

That's absolutely COOL. What about this band? Is there any record or some others tracks to download? Someone said me the guitar player was one of the fastest cause of nerve trouble, or something.

Yeah, Marcus Paus was in the guiness books for a period of time and was the guitar teacher for our guitar player. he contributed with some solos on our first demo when we were 14-15 . the track I posted was our last demo from 99 or so. Started talking to the guitar player again, so we`re planning on doing something again in the same vein.

Just some little ideads I head a few days ago, bad drum programming, I am not really good at it, just used some samples from Chimaira's Resurrection and a few others I found, the second one has also a bass track, very sloppy played, used ampeg svx for the sound. Just used a standard multiband compression preset and a limiter for "mastering".

First one are 4 guitar tracks (Charvel Model A direct into the PC, than different plugins) 2 more distorted ones R100 and L100 panned (-6db) and 2 less distorted with many mids R80 and L80 panned (-10db).

http://www.2shared.com/file/3095587/...b9/riffs.html?

2 guitar tracks, Digitech 2101 directly into the pc, no cabinet simulation, did that with Voxengo Boogex and some nice impulses (Engl V30 Cabinet) panned L100 and R100 (-5db).

http://www.2shared.com/file/3095595/...metal-01.html?

You have to wait a moment and than scroll down to the bottom of the page and download it there

A recent mix I finished from that prog rock band. Music probably isn't something you guys are into, but advice on the mix would be appreciated.

I'm Awake, a solo bass thing I wrote ages ago and finally recorded.

sounds good man. I can hear all the instruments perfectly and the cymbals aren't super bright/or any other noticeable frequency issues.

the only thing I find lacking is the kick drum. for that style, it sounds a bit too muffled IMO and it pretty overpowering. sometimes it sounds like the file has some very soft clipping at times but that could be a number of different variables that might have nothing to do with your actual mix (ie, my soundcard or monitors)

regardless, great job!

Thanks for listening man, I appreciate the advice as well. That was the final version for my school project, but things aren't quite ready for their release. I will consider replacing the kick drum, since it doesn't seem to be working. It is overpowering, but I felt, and the band did too, that the kick drum really needs to drive the song. Perhaps it's too loud, though.

There isn't any clipping going on, since I mastered it using an adaptive limiter, and the ceiling was set to -0.2 dB. It's a precise tool, so I am not sure what is happening. Maybe let me know the time code for when that happens and I'll see what is going on. The snare transients might be pushing the limiter a little hard.

Thanks again.

Wow! I guess I shouldn't be so surprised by the amazing talent on this board. I wish I could work on my music as hard as you guys do.

Our myspace has a handful of recordings. One or two of them are studio recordings, a couple are live tracks, and the others were done with a ZOOM multi-effects pedal and Acoustica Beatcraft (very badass program, IMO). We're not quite an "extreme" form of metal... A little more old school...

Since there`s really not a whole lot going on here, I`d like to share my latest creation. My drumming`s really not dynamic at all, so it`s sounds like a bunch of riffs just tossed together without coherency. Experience tells me these things are sorted out with a real drummer at rehearsel when time is due.

I`m supposed to read for my law exam, but I find excuses to do anything else, so I made another song. quarter of a song, to be more precise.

That first one is pretty insane. You should try and record it someday. Have fun nailing those sixteenth note triplets at 200bpm.
