Description : This track is far removed from my usual. My knowledge of metal is limited to Black Sabbath's 70's album, "Paranoid" so some of you true metal heads may give a little snicker when you hear it. As a drummer, this track lended itself to some nice drumming, so I thought I'd expand my horizons and give it a try. I even threw in a little Goth! Midiman James helped out on our back-to-back solos...Thanks James. Give it a listen and downloads always welcome.

If you are going to know a heavier rock band, Sabbath was a good choice. I had never seen Orange amps till I saw them in a film clip using them.

The beginning was a bit deceiving, wasn't expecting all that happens after that! What do you have for effects on the rhythm guitar around 1:28. It is interesting for sure. The choir pad was different. :) Drums are clean and punchy and the guitars sound great. Tons of energy just like Sabbath had.

Very cool Scott and James!

Hey, thanks allot Wayne. Yeah, I got into Sabbath due to the drum solo on one of their tracks. I never got much further into metal than this.

To be honest, I can't answer your question on the effects on the guitar. I'm not a guitarist, so don't know.

wow man-the drumma is soooo awesome, clean snare and tom rolls,maan!some vocalz would be dope on this
ScottB55 replied 25th Mar 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks allot. The drums are my Aleses electronic kit set to the Metal setting. I wish I was able to use my acoustic kit, but it's just not possible where I live. The Alesis also allow for different music styles.

hi Scott. I really liked fine sounding guitars in here. I do not really get the choirs, probably it is a refference to the older rock music you mentioned... Overall a powerful piece with some very good riffs. NIce one! Alex

Hey Alex,

Many thanks for your comment. As I mentioned, I'm not an authority on metal, but I have heard some earlier stuff that had the choir. I know Gothic Metal uses choirs a good bit.

Great Track Scoot. I am so glad Eddie Van Halen stopped by my home to lay that led down. LOL
ScottB55 replied 17th Mar 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks allot, Jimmy James!

Yeah, Eddie did mention something about stopping by your pad and laying down a track...Good job, Eddie!

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : BIG UPDATE 26/02/2014 - So, this was an 18 min track that I have now successfully split in two. 2nd half I uploaded a few weeks ago (Things That Should Always Be, with the bouncy 2 min reggae intro). This is the first half, which has a new mix, a mega chill, meditative ending and a little jazz thrown in for good measure. Takes a few minutes for beat to really kick in. Constantly evolving electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic drums and lead banjo driven by fat, busy 80BPM grooves with a bit of a reggae and shuffle feel. Also: synth choir voices, dulcimer, violin, cello, shimmering pads. Builds up gradually to nice and rocking and then gets taken back down for the big comedown chill. I really don't know what sort of genre this is except 'far out'. I think it sounds more like a live band than one guy playing instruments and manipulating a DAW. Not my best track but a bit of blissful, sunny island fun. Real positive vibe here so I hope you give it a chance to unfold and unfurl. Sit back, clear your schedule and immerse yourself in these trippy sonic experiments cooked up deep in my off-planet underground laboratory. I have to send the MP3 to Earth via space courier (not cheap).

Many believe their spirits still ride the night wind here.
