Description : Psychedelic chillout stoner/doom epic. Badass heavy riffage and drumming plus big chillout vibes. Heavy electric guitar plus slow attack lead parts. Other beauty and ambience from filter swept violins, two synth pads and some subtle female vocal samples. Also bass guitar and sub bass. Two programmed, heavy drum kits and one lighter one, to fatten up the sound.

    Thanks very much.

    It's great to be an inspiration to other musicians. So many have inspired me over the years that it feels appropriate that I can do the same thing for a few other people.

    There's a lot to get into when you listen to pretty much any one of my tracks and that's because you're just hearing someone who loves music but gets bored easily so I'm always trying to find a new sound and combinations of instruments that perhaps no one has heard before.

    I'm not really a proper composer but a looping jammer who does a huge amount of editing of his playing to try to make something that is interesting and exciting. If it's interesting and exciting to me, I like to think it also will be for other people who are into the styles of music I make.

    I don't know if I am the best composer here but I am almost certainly the best composer who uses the name Static Nomad.

    Thanks again.

    Beautiful piece of art. I love the heaviness in the beginning of this track. Sounds amazing.

    Thanks very much.

    I do like heavy music but I don't like it to be too aggressive or brutal. I always have to add lots of melody and groove whenever I make it. I find this one quite chilled out and melodic though it does have a pretty badass middle section.

    Thanks for listening.

    VERY NICE1 I like that slow-Metal-spaced-out-vibe. The synth pads give the track an aloof ambient sort of feel. And the drums drums are kick ass! I can imagine this track being used in a film, great job.

    Hi.

    "I like that slow-Metal-spaced-out-vibe"

    Yes - I also like that sort of vibe and was planning for it to be chilled out throughout. However, I do also like to rock pretty damn hard so, when I tried out some heavy crashing drum patterns and got a change riff (1:17) I could not resist taking it all pretty heavy as a middle section.

    "aloof ambient"

    is an interesting, quite eloquent phrase I agree with.

    "drums are kick ass"

    Thanks. They really have to be if you want to do a decent hard rock/metal track. Then again, I think they need to be at least good if you're doing any groove-based music. And my music is almost always deeply groove-based so I always need quality drums, in differing styles.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Heavy-Chillout greetings

    Interesting idea of blending together apparently different things - it really starts as something quite heavy but you seem instantly introducing those 'slow attack lead guitar parts' as the main mixing 'context' so the whole thing becomes much lighter. This makes the overall sound very spacious and somehow less powerful from what I would probably expect from the 'Heavy Metal' label. It doesn't matter basically but your mix really sounds much more 'airy' from let's say the rock track 'WTF' that I just played a moment ago to get the idea of the level of sound of the guitars. It is all airy chillout sauce making your mix sound so colorful.
    I liked guitar riffs very much too - the initial one is really fine - too bad you somehow leave that energy from the beginning quickly but nice you pick it up again around 2:41 - still the actual solo playing on the top is quite relaxed.
    As for your 'subtle female vocal samples' quiz - I'd say I can hear some female choir sound at 0:41 in the background.
    I will listen to the other track you recommended when I will return with new music.

    I enjoyed listening. Great work as always!

    Hi.

    Yes, a nice mixture of chill and heavy here - two opposite moods I like to combine.

    I think the first bit of slow attack lead guitar starts about 1:01, with a proper phrase a few seconds later. I like how that guitar sound also plays on top of the heavy riffs and crashing drums in the middle section.

    Yes, a very spacious overall sound to the track.

    "your mix really sounds much more 'airy'"

    Yes because of the gaps between the main guitar/bass riff's notes. They allow me to bring things (eg pads) in between them.

    "too bad you somehow leave that energy from the beginning quickly"

    Not sure what you mean there. I only change from that initial guitar/bass guitar/synth bass riff (all three are playing pretty much the same pattern) on 1:17. It doesn't feel like I move off it quickly. But I had to have a change so I went into quite a few different heavy riffs starting 1:17. And then return to the initial pattern around 2:41, as you say.

    "the actual solo playing on the top is quite relaxed"

    Yes - it's heavily distorted guitar but played in quite slow, spacious, melodic blues style.

    " I can hear some female choir sound at 0:41"

    Yes, I think there's a small amount there, mixed in with the filtered strings and pads. But the first subtle female vocal enters around 0:05. It's not impossible to hear the vocal sounds but I said that people wouldn't notice them because they're very subtle and merge with the strings and pads.

    "I will listen to the other track you recommended"

    I don't know which one that is.

    Thanks for the feedback. I enjoyed making this one and still think I can make a slightly better version.

    I cant believe you have gone short for a metal track..really??

    Awesome slow stoner buildup and with some nice heavy but still controlled guitars driving the progression forward.

    I can see this being a 11 minute track which is what I'd expect from you....must have a fever.

    Really want to hear a lot more metal from you as your talent can naturally flow thru your fingers and onto any guitar thrown at you.

    Sorry, didn't watch the timing in relation to any part that I wanted to know about in saying that, I do like how you mellowed out the end which was a cool finishing touch...which must have hurt not to go the distance on this.

    Very nice Master Looper & Very happy to come back and hear this creative works by one of my inspirations in music.

    "you have gone short for a metal track..really??"

    Yes, I really have. Would you believe that I've uploaded three track under 4 mins in the last 6 weeks? All part of my ongoing efforts to be more of a Concise Nomad. This one was tucked away as the end of a 9 min track but I decided it was far too good to be at the end of something and needed to come out and take centre stage. I'm happy with this length as it feels about right, even though I could easily extend it quite a bit.

    "Really want to hear a lot more metal from you"

    No problem - try these recent two long ones as they both feature my new, haunting timestretched guitar techniques:

    "I do like how you mellowed out the end"

    My initial plan was for this track to be all chilled out stoner but I couldn't help breaking into some more badass heavy stuff as a middle section. It totally fits and ups the excitement levels before returning to some big stoner chill.

    "Very happy to come back and hear this creative works by one of my inspirations in music"

    Thanks a lot. It's good to be an inspiration to anyone. Unless it's a serial killer (or similar).

    Take care.

    Wow, only took me a week to listen to this one,... and coincidentally it's one of your shorter ones. What's up with that? Thaw chew word un with hem. (thought you were done with them)

    Great breathing room till 1:20, then it says "Alright, this is 'bout to get serious".

    2:17 is simple but bad-fucking-ass! VERY cool. Went back to it several times. Good stuff there.

    Bringin' it down for the ending section, which ends very nicely. Nice finger-work there. Can hear a lot of fret-wiggle in the end section. I need to get on my wiggle, learn to wiggle, then perform my wiggle for others. Maybe give Satan a wiggle or two.

    Was never a Sabbath fan, so I don't know if this sounds like them. This makes me think of Alice In Chains more than anything. I can EASILY hear Layne singing on this.

    Hope all is well. Things getting back to normal, here. Going to spend some time on my track this evening, since you have enough bass from me for now. Mine has been sitting for a while now. Got about a minute of lap-steel, bass, drums and a Zippo that I've had for about 23 years.

    Word up, Midnight Sunbather.

    Did you enjoy basking in the glory of my beautiful rays? If you listen for long enough, you can get a pretty bitchin' Nomad tan. That's the Nomadgic rubbing off, though it tends to fade after a few days. Keep topping up and you can have that tan all the time.

    "thought you were done with them"

    No, certainly not. I'm trying to be more intelligent all the time about my music making and will do a shorter track if that's what feels right. So many reasons for me doing lots of long ones. Above all it's because lengthy seems to suit my far out style. This one is nice and concise but could be so much longer though I'm glad it's not. Still might go back and extend it just a little.

    "Great breathing room till 1:20"

    Yes - lots of nice space to let that slow, simple guitar and bass groove flow, along with the slowly introduced strings and other ambient elements. Then it does get heavy as I switch to a new low end riff and fat, cymbal-led crashing drums.

    "2:17 is simple but bad-fucking-ass!"

    You have a chosen a very cool, simple, short and neat little solo. Good choice as I'm really happy with how brief and effective that is. It's all part of the new Concise Nomad. Must get better at that.

    "Can hear a lot of fret-wiggle in the end section"

    I guess you mean bends. I'm a big bender while we know that you are a straight note slave.

    "I need to get on my wiggle"

    Yes - just imagine your fretting finger is a synth's pitch bend wheel and move it about a bit. You will hear the sound change in a pleasing way, if you get it right.

    "Was never a Sabbath fan"

    For a while I have wondered if you actually listen to any stoner or doom. I suspect not. So, so much to choose from (and I know a lot about it) but try Sabbath's song Into The Void for starters. You will enjoy the riffage.

    Yes, if Layne Staley were alive I would let him sing on this (I'm a huge AIC fan).

    Maynard: I know you're reading this so feel free to have a go and send me whatever you come up with.

    "since you have enough bass from me for now"

    Not necessarily. I may well ask for more. But for now you are free to play Zippo riffs all day.

    Absolutely - "A psychedelic chillout stoner/doom epic." Something weird is going on when you are doing shorter songs and I am doing longer songs. The music gods are smiling down on us both now! :)

    It reminded me instantly of Black Sabbath when it started, was expecting Ozzie to start blasting off. The pad that slowly comes in is cool, it adds a bit of softness to the track. The old band Foreigner used to do that a lot.

    Glad you split this off of the other track and continued working on this. Even though this probably worked well with the other track it makes a great track on it's own. Good build ups and transitions throughout the track. Interesting convo between you and Cru about that.

    I find it weird when I'm working on fast paced songs then I do one at 85 bpm and it sounds to me like it's dragging. This one is slow, what is the bpm? The slower songs bring out lots of emotion in guitar playing so nice riffage all the way through. The series of kick drums at about 1:10 was cool as sh!t!

    Way to go Mr. Nomad!

    Yo. Mr Wayne.

    Yes, a surprise to see you doing an 8 min song. No doubt because you just had to tell the whole story. I don't know how long the original Dylan song is.

    I have been making a determined effort to do shorter stuff and have had some definite success, such as 3 tracks under 4 mins in the last month or so.

    Yes, I certainly do hear the Sabbath in this though only realised it after everyone else pointed out. Something to do with the slower tempo and how I hit one big euphoric chord.

    "The pad that slowly comes in is cool"

    That's the sort of thing that Sabbath never did, as far as I'm aware. Big chill in this if you remove the guitar. Actually you can hear that in the last minute or so.

    "Even though this probably worked well with the other track"

    It was OK but a bit of an unnecessary ending. Far too good to be somewhat hidden away at the end of a long one.

    "Good build ups and transitions throughout the track."

    Yes, it has a very "musically healthy" waveform ie lots of dynamics and peaks and troughs. Not just copied and pasted, incessant stuff (even though I always do a lot of copying and pasting) but more like a live band.

    BPM here is 100 throughout though I think the drum track is playing at half tempo so I guess it's 50.

    "The slower songs bring out lots of emotion in guitar playing"

    Yes, my instrument playing is best suited to slow and medium tempo stuff. I'm not a good fast player though I can sometimes knock out some short bursts of rapid badassery.

    "kick drums at about 1:10 was cool as sh!t"

    Glad you noticed as there's so method behind that. Previously, the drum groove has been open and sparse to allow big chords and some pads to flow. They are punctuated by particular drum fills for excitement. But, before it goes massive and heavy on 1:17 I know that I want to build up to that so that double kick work did the job very well. Putting them in before interfered with the groove but it makes sense when I then go into something heavier.

    This is the skill of carefully arranging your drum movement and having a purpose behind each fill and cymbal hit and so on. You've go to remove drum work that interferes with top layers whilst also working out how you can use the drums to build up excitement in all the right places.

    Thanks very much for the thoughts.

    I think what I was asking for this specific song is a caution to the wind approach because I have heard you do that before as you have linked (very good PR you will do well on the chat show circuit) us with a previous song. When you get to know an artist's work, sometimes you start to think of things they should or could do, but ultimately it comes down to will they? Or why would they? So in my humble Canamerican opinion with a sprinkling of (loads of) sarcasm and no hatred whatsoever of the British tyranny that made us all Mega fat in North America due to you're duplicitous tea and making us fur trap and club baby seals and cadbury as if we needed to indulge in chocolate covered baby seal fur! ...I Digress...........

    Do you think you and your music may be seen as the key driver of evolutionary change in this current period of histoire? If so, it should indeed be named after you.

    "Mea Culpa (as you love latin so much)"

    Much better that than the shockingly incorrect and childish "my bad" that I'm always hearing in movies and on TV. My French cousin even says it, having picked it up from TV. It's so fantastically wrong and immature.

    "I was asking for this specific song is a caution to the wind approach"

    I guess the wind must have thrown it back to me. It can do that as it's very good at picking items up and returning them to you, provided you're standing in the right place.

    I was just a little more conservative and concise on this one but may try to get more extreme sometime soon, just for you. Quite possibly on my latest dance/chill/metal track based around my electric cello playing. That's something you have not heard before from me. You'll like it.

    "you will do well on the chat show circuit"

    Probably not as this Nomad is unlikely to ever be on a single one. If I ever am, I will come armed with extensive plugs (and plugins) including possibly one for The Cru.

    "making us fur trap and club baby seals"

    I don't know if my cultural ancestors did actually make you do that.

    "chocolate covered baby seal fur"

    That's very nice in Cadbury biscuit form. They also do a very tasty Blubber Bar, which is seared baby seal blubber covered in chocolate and biscuit crumb.

    Yo, TinyP.

    How do things be?

    "I need rappers for my psychedelic chillout stoner/doom!"

    You should totally start a forum thread requesting rappers for that exact genre. I believe I could make it work really well, even though I've never heard all those genres combined.

    "Why dont we have more psychedelic chillout stoner/doom?"

    There tends not to be that much chilling going on in the world of stoner and doom. If so, it's more on the dark, malevolent side of things. But my chill here is more like beautiful ambient music. No darkness at all.

    "epic work here my friend"

    That is generally what I go for. The difference this time is that it's a real short epic.

    "I would definitely invest in EZ drummer if i had the the cash! Always sounds amazing!"

    I love it and could not make the music I make without either it or similar drum software. I actually have Superior Drummer but mostly load EZ kits into it. You can hear that they have some excellent metal ones. Only two used here but I have more.

    I've even got a really cool hip hop EZ kit, which I've used in loads of tracks. I don't mean hip hop drum loops - I mean a proper kit, with loads of classic hip hop drums kind of spanning the history of hip hop.

    Thanks again.

    "I think you're saying you want it to be longer. Yes - there's loads of music in this genre that goes on and on, seemingly forever. I guess the idea is you get really stoned and headnod along for ages."

    No not at all what I meant. What I was saying was I wanna hear you build the track to the point of no return. You tease us with a massive buildup, then you back it down which "lengthens" your song. I'm saying throw caution to the wind and just keep making it chaotic and mayhem and massive walls of sound and energy as far as you can go. That would be a fun experiment to hear from you. I believe there is a certain restraint button you have deep in you that prevents you from doing that. Wouldn't it be fun to explore that side of you you have not expressed yet?

    Regreetings, Crumagnon Man.

    It took me quite a while to work out what I think you might be suggesting.

    So, instead of me making the track longer by adding in lots of extended craziness, you want me to not return to the chill stuff on 2:36 but instead extend the heavy middle madness.

    But I like the return to the chill!

    "keep making it chaotic and mayhem and massive walls of sound and energy as far as you can go"

    I could fairly easily do that but I've done it loads of times before eg in

    The Bigger The Fatter The Better
    http://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/155188

    The obvious thing to do here would be to also take the drums double time in the heavy middle and then see if I can manage some fast kind of widdling leads. Shredding, as some might say.

    2:17 I do quite a nice, simple bluesy mostly two note short solo but I could probably manage more of that.

    Overall, I quite like the track this length and structure and enjoy the ambient chill mixed with the balls out heaviness. Thanks anyway for the suggestion. I will bear it in mind, as I do with all (sensible) suggestions.

    "I believe there is a certain restraint button you have deep in you that prevents you from doing that"

    Yes and no. Of course you should always exercise restraint in music making otherwise things will get too extreme and ridiculous and lack finesse and skill. I have to use the restraint control to not make things too ridiculously long, heavy, layered, bizarre and so on.

    "Crueactious period!"

    No idea what that means.

    I'm planning to make it a bit more massive. I do like the look of the waveform here (good peaks and troughs) but think the track could handle being a bit louder. Good to hear you find it profound as that's very important to me. You know by now that I don't make pop music.

    "I would hardly compare it to anything 'heavy' uploaded here on Loopeman ever"

    I'm not sure I've heard many proper stoner/doom tracks on here. I'm sure there must be some but I guess I haven't found them yet.

    OOh the Sabbath is strong.. Nailed Ward's groove in the fills.. Felt a vocal vibe at 0:48, gave me some ideas.. I may have a tinker... So much good Rock/Blues on Looperman lately.. I may have to get back into it.. That was great man, I really enjoyed that, although I do feel there should be a short switch up after the end, maybe something a little faster for 8 or 16 bars..

    Yo.

    Everyone's saying Sabbath and I don't disagree but I really rarely listen to them. My stoner/doom references are more 90s and since then. But, yes, Sabbath did basically invent this sort of genre.

    However, the big, big difference between this track and perhaps any of their stuff is the use of deep chill and ambient elements. Never heard that in one of their tracks but I'm no Sabbath expert so maybe later stuff has it.

    "Felt a vocal vibe at 0:48"

    I think that's just a guitar note and strings coming together though there are subtle vocal samples in this too (quite possibly also at that point).

    " I do feel there should be a short switch up after the end, maybe something a little faster for 8 or 16 bars."

    I hear what you're saying and, yes, it would have been so, so easy to take this double time and really pound away with more and more badass riffage.

    However, I do double time/half time drum stuff so often that I'm trying to do less of it - just for variation in my body of musical work.

    Glad to see you brought Mr. Iommi back to the studio for another go around. It's not dark but sort of a determined message feel that the music brings to the table, and boy does it have a groove to it. I (just as for shits and giggles) would love you to keep doing those epic builds but don't bring it back down, just keep going as hard and heavy as you possibly can until our ears bleed. but having said that when you do bring it down and just expose some soft pads and percussion with that tasteful guitar lines you provide it is well done and reminds me of some of the "pad-downs" I have been doing like in "catatonia".
    Nice expansion on a theme from the last tune.

    Greetings, Crumidnight.

    Yes, I brought Iommi back. In the end, he mostly just sat at the back of the studio watching me riff it up. He was a bit in awe of my badass riffage and so is coming back next week for a lesson or two. Free of charge cos I'm a nice guy.

    Just as well I had the sense to identify that this was much better suited to being its own interesting track rather than being only 2.5 mins long at the end of a 9 min chill/groove track. Neomorpheus suggested I do it but I'd already thought of it.

    "boy does it have a groove to it."

    It is indeed one groovy mothafucka. Very simple and sparse, with lots of space for extra drum fills and bits of riffage and strings and pads inbetween some guitar parts.

    "just keep going as hard and heavy as you possibly can until our ears bleed."

    I think you're saying you want it to be longer. Yes - there's loads of music in this genre that goes on and on, seemingly forever. I guess the idea is you get really stoned and headnod along for ages.

    It's tempting and I could easily extend this considerably but I'm trying hard to operate as a more Concise Nomad when possible. However I've got a new mega shuffle blues coming up in the next 2 weeks. 8.5 mins so far and I feel it should be more like 12. So, Lengthy Overblown Nomad is still alive and kicking. He will probably never die.

    ""pad-downs"

    Is that like a beat down but gentler and more soothing?

    Some damn nice stringy stuff in here. Mostly the sort of patches I've used many times before but still effective in context.

    Take care,

    oh yeah, Sabbath immediately came to mind and fav'd instantly. Was this recorded when you decided to make a guest appearance at their farewell tour? Listened last night quietly, wife already screamed at me this week for playing music too loud late at night, so had to come back for seconds, and thirds and... when I can play it LOUD! I think the title describes it well.

    Word up, Mr 4Fat.

    This is right up your metallic street. You'd probably prefer it darker and weirder but I generally try to add more beauty than weirdness though it can be great to combine them.

    "when I can play it LOUD!"

    Do that right now. You need to for this track.

    "wife already screamed at me this week for playing music too loud late at night"

    I suggest either headphones or you could make your wife go out with some friends till the early hours. That leaves you with Midnight Sun playing on repeat.

    "Was this recorded when you decided to make a guest appearance at their farewell tour?"

    A little bit before but I never ended up making that appearance. The Sabbath boys heard some of my heavy music and wanted to book the band that made it to open for them on that tour. They were a bit surprised when they found out that it's all made by one guy at home who doesn't have a band to perform the material live.

    So, they offered to be my backing band and we did a few rehearsals (no Ozzy) but it was taking up too much of their time so we quit. Instead, they just warm up the crowd at their gigs by playing some of my best heavy tracks over the PA. Tracks like:

    Ooooh, mr.Nomad!

    Faved from the first notes...industrial/Sabbath guitars and that's enough for me...:-)
    The riffs are outstanding...from 1.17 the groovy is like a ton of bricks...
    Special track for sure...know that you don't like these kinda sentences but it's one of the best 'heavy metal' track here or the most unique one...all my hats off...

    Handshake, Danke

    Ooooh, Mr Danke!

    Good to hear you enjoyed my little stoner/doom bit of fun.

    "Faved from the first note"

    Yes, it's a simple but very effective pattern. Just 3 slow, short hits on the open D string and then up to a big, powerful C chord. And then a bit of F and G.

    "from 1.17 the groovy is like a ton of bricks"

    Yes, very powerful drums driven by big cymbals. So much fun!

    I've done lots of heavy music but this is probably my first proper stoner/doom track. I listen to a lot of that sort of music so I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to come up with my own track in that style.

    If you really do think this is "one of the best 'heavy metal' track here or the most unique one" then you should add it to my forum thread that you probably remember:

    http://www.looperman.com/forum/thread/182742/what-are-your-favourite-tracks-on-looperman

    People have forgotten about that thread.

    Thanks and handshake.

    What can I say? Its always great to hear a new track from you and this is no exception - very dark but a great driving beat - the ending took me a bit by surprise but the whole track really is excellent

    Yo. Mr TheK

    I don't actually hear this as being dark. I find a lot of beauty in the raw, kind of spiritual power of this massive guitar sound and huge riffage.

    And, if you listen to the elements aside from the guitar and drums (ie strings and pads) there's a lot of beauty and chillout ambience.

    In the title of this, the 'sun reflects the bright beauty and the 'midnight' the heavy, slightly darker riffage.

    But I overall hear this as a beautiful piece, with some life-affirming heavy power.

    "the ending took me a bit by surprise"

    I'm not sure why or exactly where you mean. Maybe it comes to an end a bit too suddenly. It's one of my neatest endings in the last year.

    Great to hear you liked it.

    Thanks.

Description : "Remember the Sabbath day".

I went to see Sabbath for the last time the other night here in Dallas. They have proclaimed themselves a Dead Band Walking and are performing their final concert tour. They put on a great show as always but it was a sad ending, as most endings usually are. Since they are one of my favorite bands I decided to put together a little tribute track here. I have been busy working on some doom/stoner metal riffs and also have a lot of Sabbath cover stuff I've done. So I did a little mix of something new along with my version of Supernaut. It's basically a jam that focuses on replicating their sound and styling. I know there's a few Black Sabbath fans here so hopefully you guys will like it.

Long live the GOAT, the greatest of all time, the true Gods of Metal - Black Sabbath !

Description : A collab with nicetones101 ! This has been awhile in the making, real life caught up with me and i had to take a little musical break. I looked over my past comments i received and i tried to put all the constructive criticism to work ! I turned the vocals up a bit , I also cut down on the effects and left a clean vocal track. I did want the chaos and the noise to still be a player in certain parts though. I tried to create two distinct atmospheres, an uneasy calm and a manic episode. I prefer headphones with this track as there is a lot going on at certain times.

Description : A collab with nicetones101. Dark , gritty and with questionable intent. crunchy riff driven guitars and atmospheric vocals weave together a solemn track.Hopefully we invoke some sort of emotion! \m/

Description : The music for this song is 'Heavy Metal Highway' song and was used with permission from Randy at . The added vocals and effects were added in Garageband. Listen to it LOUD and listen all the way to the end, it's worth it!

Description : A collab with fellow Looperman, "dssdsdsd". He posted a pretty wicked guitar instrumental a while back of this song from KoRns Untouchables LP with a request for someone to mix it. I decided to give it a shot to complete the song. Wanted to stay true to the original as possible but didn't want a carbon copy so I tried a few ideas of my own. Added a bit of my own guitar, drums, keyboards, a lot of effects and even stepped up to the mic for a try at the vocals.

Description : One of my greatest heavy tracks. What I find unusual is the amount of melodic and deep ambient guitar that sits on top of low, distorted riffs and fat, heavy drums. Very little synth work here apart from the sub bass, which plays almost throughout. Bass guitar in two sections and a couple of slide resonator guitar solos. Drums are a few programmed metal/rock kits, no drum loops. What I still have trouble believing and understanding is that all of the many vocal sounds in this are actually timestretched guitar parts (8x or 800% slower). I don't know why the timestretching adds such a clear vocal component to the sound. Gets darker and more intense in the middle (and towards the end) but this is otherwise quite melodic - perhaps in a way that might put off some metallers. Shitloads of guitar playing, some fairly badass, and lots of heavy, crashing drums so press play if you want to rock hard but also in a deep ambient, psychedelic way. Interesting thoughts and reflections are, as always, greatly appreciated. Detailed comments preferred...

Description : I am totally just gonna encourage you to hit play...and enjoy!

Thank you so much Mr. Bear for the track and the mix :-), now you'll have something to entertain you on your trip :-)

PLAY IN TRAFFIC! AND LOUD!

Description : I discovered Meshuggah around 2003 and was blown away by the power, complexity and super Heavy sound of their music. Their "Nothing" album marked the switch to 8 string guitars and pushed Heavy Metal into a whole new territory. My track is a variant cover of their song "Nebulous". I have stayed pretty close to the original but added a few dynamic elements of my own. Its loud, its super heavy and way out there...Beyond Nebulous.

Description : A little something from the archives for Phatkatz's Halloween challenge. A long, long time ago I posted some stems on Looperman and held a contest to see who could do the best remix. This is the winner, and it showcases the monstrous musical skills of Bilbozo with an appearance by his wife as well. It's a whole lot of metal madness and a really fun listen. I'll leave it up for a bit and then put it back in mothballs after Halloween. Enjoy!!

Description : This unconventional metal track is dedicated to Valvedriver https://www.looperman.com/users/profile/841435 though it's not a parody of his fine music or me actively trying to sound like it. I struggled for months with the first few minutes of this track knowing that I must be able to take it somewhere deeper, more psychedelic and powerful. Then I loaded some sampled choir voice instruments, as used in my track Reckful https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/160356 and suddenly found myself happily in Valveland - not a place I visit often. Feeling amply Valvedriven and newly inspired, I added the last few minutes fairly easily and very quickly. So: it's a twisting, turning mixture of grunge, menacing ambient, mystical metal and ultra-heavy funk. Instruments: electric guitar+bass, synth basses, female choir voices, one synth pad, some other synths on the nastier side of things and a few programmed heavy acoustic drumkits playing a mixture of triplets and straighter grooves. Interesting thoughts appreciated. Favourite bits? Shit bits? Please listen on good headphones/speakers as there's a lot of heavy bass in this. Now get ready to rock: balls out, hands in the air and with rebellious joy in your heart. Just try not to headbang the hell out of your laptop. Go!
