Description : The title felt a little weak, hence the change.
It's finished! The mix is far, far better, I've added some extras and brought out some sounds that weren't coming through previously. D'ya think it's gig ready?

    bit funky bit aggresive which is nice. Personally i expected some more sounds to kick in, it stays a bit empty for me. Gigging this should be done under a freeway exit pass with a lot of amphetemines : )

    This is pretty sonically engaging! I like it! When you ask about it being "gig ready," I assume this is some sort of live in studio performance. Is that the case? If so, I am impressed! It was fun hearing the fairly raw synth sounds and stuff. Definitely feels industrial to me! Great work!

    Wow. I just listened to your track and I feel really pissed off. If the purpose of music is to transfer emotion from the artist to the listener, then you get a 10 out of 10. Good job man. Great track.

    Hell yeah, nailed it! I was real pissed off making this. Thanks for listening dude :)

    This was a great story telling process. The construction of the song was excellent. In my opinion, it is certainly ready for a gig performance. You captured my like on this track.

    War, when is it coming? War by computer, destroy the infrastructure using code. starve the people by decimating the digital experience. You have captured that here.

    The intro really spoke to me! I'm not one who listens to industrial but this was quite an entertaining listen! I like the changing patterns and BPM, really told a story using such strange effects. The highs were a bit harsh, as others have mentioned; this is my only critique of the song. The structure and the story, everything was done well. Great work! Thumbs on this one. You're pretty good at this stuff, if I may so myself.

    Neither do I! Hehehe but I'm constantly told I make industrial, I refer to it as Abrasive.. Only so I can make the rules XD

    Thank you, you'll be glad to hear there are more added now and, I hope, I've fixed the mix, it was quite lack lustre.

    I really appreciate your generous comments :D

    I did one of the same name!
    It's on here and reverb ..... https://www.reverbnation.com/jackbis61yearsold

    What I like about this is you didn't take the route of sound effects like helicopters and machine guns men screaming etc. Easy to do that way but not as artistic.
    You took the artistic route and painted the mood and the place without recourse to that. Nice angry feel to it.
    There's room for some blood to spilled now I think .....

    I checked it out! It was very pleasing, that distorted trombone! I may have to try something with that :D

    It didn't feel right doing such a thing, I entertained the idea, put it into a few bars, it felt very cheap & generic so I removed it .

    Even more room now it's complete! I hope you enjoy the final version :)

    I don't normally listen to industrial like this but I like it.
    Maybe I would suggest using some limiting or compression to tone down those highs a bit. Also, I would add something more bassy and flat, without a lot of trebble attack. I think the music has too much highpitced sounds all the time, could have less, be more dynamic. Just my opinion though.
    Keep it up man :)

    Reply by Metabolic

    Hey, thanks man.

    I agree, I always have too much high-end, I've been experimenting with how to bring it down, with moderate success, although this is a first draft..

    My ears are in need of a Doctor.

    Thanks for listening dude and even more for your suggestions, I'll be sure to keep them in mind when I come back to this :)

    there is a lot of power in music both to purge our own frustrations and to effect change in the world. this could very well be an anthem for the true uprising against the waves of violence rocking the world right now. Civilized society understands restraint - but there is power in restraint. I feel restraint as well as power in your driving track. Fav. Dan

    Thank you Dan, I couldn't agree more... It probably took you no more than five minutes to listen and comment but what you wrote has given me a perspective that will last a lifetime. This is why I love music (and musicians!). Many thanks :)

    Man, this is some track! I agree with Danke, I would think it's Industrial, but on the other hand who cares for tags and clarifications? Even if there was no description from you I can sense the anger and frustration, so you did a good job in transforming this via electronic music, which is much harder than when you play a stringed instrument for instance. Hope you feel better now, too.

    Reply by Metabolic

    The only reason I add D&B as tag is the tempo but I agree, Industrial would be more suitable.. I wish we could have custom genre tags.

    Thank you, yes I feel much better although I've reserved an amount of hatred until this is complete. :)

    Hahhh...what a dangerous and special track (maybe just for me, cause I donno dnb) but I feel it's a special segment of that style...it easily could be industrial or weird too...the frustration is of course there after a terror attack like that...no comment...

    cool one, handshake, Danke

    Reply by Metabolic

    Great words Danke. As for the genre, I'm always lost as to where I belong :(

    Thank you for listening :)

Description : Today's six track recording of a live song which I've been practicing for several days. I broke many of my own rules when getting this to the product it is now. Times have been rough around here, with pressure building from all sides. You can feel it in the air, and in all the people. I can only hope that after the US election, some of the pressure releases. All tracks recorded simultaneously - Vocals via my 100 Proof Microphone, Monotribe, Beatstep, two modular synth tracks (one beatstep controlled and one by my four step sequencer), Zoom RT-123, 2xKawa circuit bent drum box, Boss RV-3 reverb/delay.

Description : This if the final mix for all the instrumentation. And yes we're breaking quite a few conventions here. I like my diminished scales.

Meter:12/2 (mostly)
key:A locrian (mostly)
took a whole year and around 200 audio tracks to nail this


Some guitar parts (the good ones) by Couch Potatoe
one loop - Alen9r (user) Tropical

Description : Hello all, finally got around to polishing this track, which came from a collab with FarM (known on here as honkytonk). He provided me with some drum and bass work, and I came back with a demo that was essentially what you are hearing now. I just fixed the tuning and some pops at transitions. The tuning basically thwarted our collab I think, because without really remembering I played the guitar parts tuned to 432 Hz *** http://csglobe.com/music-conspiracy-to-detune-us-from-natural-432-hz-harmonics/ ***
and left all the other instruments at 440 Hz as a result...heh. Sounded much better after fixing that. Anyway it's got some dubstep and industrial most obviously. Yet another song I unconsciously ripped off from Skinny Puppy. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : My grandmother was from Belarus. She was the lone survivor of her family after the Waffen SS massacred everyone in her village during a retreat from the Red Army. She escaped soviet occupied Belarus & through a series of wranglings by the international red cross, found a family to adopt her in New Jersey in 1947. She was 14 years old then. She was the strongest person I ever knew & I miss her terribly. This song is for her.

Description : I recorded this song several weeks ago, live in studio. It was a very spontaneous reaction to some experiences and interactions only an hour or so before.

I recorded the audio tracks, as well as a video on my old digital camera. The video has been up on youtube for a while:


This was recorded with my 100 Proof microphone, Eat Lead Copper modular synth, Breaking Blue tabletop synth, modified Yamaha DD-20, and Zoom RT-123.

In the last couple of days, I finally got around to mixing the audio I had recorded into a better quality rendition. The stems were used as is, simple being mixed a bit and mastered.

Have fun listening!

Description : Here is a new Spivkurl track for all of you to check out! My thought process interprets this as industrial gothic, but it's open to external interpretation. This song's sounds were almost entirely sampled from equipment which I hand soldered, whether it be synthesizer builds or circuit bending. The lead vocals were recorded with the new microphone which I built in the past few days, and I'm happy with the way it interacts with my voice. In fact the only piece of gear used that I didn't build was the microphone for the hook vocals... and they are meant to be unintelligible, as they were recorded spontaneously with a patch I called a Spivocoder (on my modular synth). Uptempo and aggressive, it's definitely my sort of industrial. Please give me your opinions if you have the time! Thanks!

Description : Updated 6 May 2017 - I took a bit of advice from OViea91 in order to enhance the reverb field of the vocals, and I also worked to tame some harsh high end in order to allow the low frequencies and dynamics to shine through more. I think it is an improvement. Downloads allowed now! 21 April 2017 - Here is my latest song, which begin from two directions at once. The lyrics began as a sort sentence written on a calendar photograph, and the music began as my entry to the FL studio "Sytrus Only" competition. I finished the vocals completely freestyle, using my DIY 100 proof microphone. All of the sound design is still the original entry, and thus uses only the Sytrus plugin on FL studio. The arrangement barely changed from the original instrumental (to accommodate the vocals), but the mixing and mastering was updated slightly (since the competition did not allow any effects at all). Being observant can be a real bitch sometimes when you're out there in the world, though sometimes an idea like this can be the flip side of the coin. The song also started me thinking about the literal difference between "Earth" and "World." One seems specific, and one general... though I think that the generalisation can add to the longevity of the relevance of an idea such as this. Thank you for listening!

Description : The results of one of my most intense recording sessions to date. I don't think I've explored a single key this deeply ever before. (G minor for those of you wondering) I pulled out my old Epiphone Les Paul, which I've rebuilt and customized over the years. Typed the original lyrics for the song on a couple text message drafts in my phone, then expanded upon them. Has some dubstep elements which are obvious, but it's at a higher tempo. So I guess there's some gothic and industrial in there too. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : This is one sexy track. Bordering NeuroFunk.. I made this heavily sleep deprived and exhausted within a few hours.. Getting to grips with mixing again, how is it on your end? I'm also feeling some tom toms in the intro.. Maybe.. Best enjoyed with headphones :)

Description : Drawing on my favourite bands this demo fuses pulsing electronic beats with raw electric guitar, horror movie sound clips and a bit of my singing!

My next track will feature loops from Looperman so please follow me to hear it first!

Description : Not really 'industrial' although some aspects might fit with the genre...generally robots and stuff...hehe...and a hint of heavy metal is also there...:)

Description : Here's a song that I wrote with my friend. I tried to make a gritty and weird song that also included using my voice as a soundscape. Some sounds are simply me blowing into the mic.I put an insane amount of delay on the vocals and pitch shifted them down 2 semitones as well as adding distortion. Enjoy!

Music:Rick Joanisse/Ty Dumoulin

Description : I made this track using my own DAW - the software is based on the php programming language and the SoX utility for linux.

Description : A sort of Bonobo-meets-Faithless track with woodwind from MrMosely. I don't really know the genre; but sounds like a mix of industrial and chill out. A simple song (Simpleton!!!) but hopefully it works for you guys... consider it a new years song/birthday song (ya, im 12 now!!)
