    Hot damn!

    Why I've not clicked one of your tracks before I don't know.

    This is great.

    I'm getting a Tool vibe. This is crying out for vocals.

    I'll certainly be clicking the next.

    I am working on a track with vocals at the moment. Finishing a lead guitar solo at the end and it should be ready for critique. Thanks for giving this a listen. Not used to doing vocals, but I'm trying to be a jack of all trades. Thanks again!

    hello this one was a bit surprising (in positive!) and quite different from what I can remember from you. Yes, definitely more progressive, changing and interesting in terms of the 'colors' and tempo. Nice writing, especially in the opening section! I like it in particular maybe because I was listening a lot to Al Di Meola sort of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWxTyld-r_8 it is very mixed 'fusion' also with synthesizers.
    I can not give you any details (whish I could write and think faster haha) - just to say that I really like what you did.

    Really nice playing and cool sounds for all the guitar parts, there is alot of varieties and dynamics going on which i like, still with this sort of instrumental mastery i would like to have some freak influence included. This type of playing is way beyond my skill but from an personal point of view i would like a little more surprises in there. Hella good though

    I hope the summer has been good for you. I have been ridiculously productive in all genres and having a hell of a time making music and mastering sounds and meshing things together that shouldn't be. What are you working on these days my friend?

    Reply by Evisma

    Hello, good sir.

    Glad to hear you've been productive! Sorry, I've not been doing any Looperman listening for a while. Got a bit disenchanted with the lack of new Rock/Metal instrumentalists joining the site, and an influx of producers and rappers. Also not a fan of the mouth-flapping coming from a Funktastic bitch who admonishes every perceived micro-aggression. So it's the track section disappointment, and the forum policing. I would rather leave than stay and complain. Also been more active this summer. I quit smoking over 3 years ago and now we're biking and hiking and canoeing about the Ozarks. I have really gotten into fishing in an unhealthy way. Addicted.

    I have two partial tracks in the hopper, and a couple collabs with looperman members that may see the light of day in the next year. Hopefully sooner with my personal tracks.

    Good to hear from you!

    Take care.

    Wow! I'm totally blown away with this track! Excellent job Evan! This sort of reminds me of what a updated cross of 70's rock bands like "Yes, Focus and Flash" (if you've ever heard of them) would sound like. Absolutely love the creativeness of this tune; very sweet guitar riffs kicking in at 3:42. This track has everything I love to heard in a "instrumental rock track of this genre." Not to mention some "Kick-Ass" Rock" as well as some exceptional mixing. Very clean and professional which made it very enjoyable to listen to. Best track I've heard in some time, again wonderful track Evan thanks for sharing.

    What can I say that hasn't already been said. Great mix, big sound filling the entire stereo field. Guitars are ripping and thick, good overall tone too. Some singing/vocals on this track and you have a hit on your hands! Seems you've wrapped your head around those Superior drums, they sound great.

    Well done man, your best mix so far!

    Hey Evan, damn I'm late getting back to you on this one. I gave it a listen at work a while back and didn't have time to give it a sufficient review. This track grabbed me in the nads right after the reverse cymbal intro and didn't let go all the way through. Another words, it had my undivided attention from start to finish. Its a fuckin great composition of a track bro. In my opinion your skills have never been been better exemplified. I have to say that the Superior drums really make a difference here. I'm envious of the tasteful programming job you've done syncing the drums and guitar. That's not so easy to do. I know your a wicked bass player but man you bust out some pretty impressive chops on the 6 string here as well. As a bass player you certainly understand phrasing and you carried it over into your guitar playing. However I would have liked to of heard more power chords in this, particularly in that outro section (4:30) I think would have benefitted with some nice heavy chords in the flow. I think you really nailed the EQ in this too. Everything sounds tight and perfectly leveled. I love the tone on the guitar man. Fat and crisp but not too detuned!
    This track like some of your others seems to have a Celtic vibe to it, and considering the title I can easily imagine some medieval story involving Viking ships braving raging seas and tumultuous storms in an effort to find new lands to conquer.

    Good stuff Evan.
    Next question, when is the album coming out ?

    Reply by Evisma


    Glad you liked this one. The more I get into the distorted guitars, the longer the track takes me. I'm at 2 months now and I'm on my 3rd attempted track. In a bit of a slump, but it will pass.

    Thanks for the feedback. All good news!

    Reply by Evisma

    Never been big on Metallica, but I did like Finger Eleven's earlier stuff like "Greyest of Blue Skies". I heard "Broken Words" played acoustic and live at a radio station, and looked into their stuff. Borderline too radio-friendly even back then. Now, those "One Thing" and "Paralyzed" tracks are total shit. Not sure what the rest of the album sounds like because the singles they vomited out tell me it's all crap now.

    Hey, heinous harasser of high class haemophiliac hookers.

    It's true that I like my handsaws. Especially those with the herring handles. They're my pride and joy.

    "Fantastic movie ideas."

    Oh yeah - I'm a movie genius. I don't know why the Hollywood guys don't come to me more often for cool ideas. Maybe cos I'd put them out of a job. We just need some hot puppet ass in your Team Evisma movie and it would be such an awesome, alternative Bible epic. Something like a cross between Python's Life Of Brian (quite possibly the best comedy movie ever made) and Team America. With added Nomadgic.

    "I have not, but surely it's under Tools."

    You need a special code to unlock the Assive option. A bit like cheat codes in computer games. One particular code and you get Lars Ulrich sitting at the kit, blasting away. If you're nice to me, I'll let you know what it is.

    Sometime, you're going to have to give me so detailed explanation of how you manage to use 30 tracks for guitar! I totally don't get it. My cello teacher was surprised when I told her recently that I'd used as many as 9 tracks in one of my most layered cello tracks (Start With A Kiss). She didn't think that was very many so I must work in quite a different way from other people. But I work alone so don't see what other people do.

    "Mr. V mentioned having the next Bastard File"

    I don't remember that! Do not rely on Mr V to offer up a new Bastard File. I remain the only one to have done so (and it turned out pretty good). I'm only not offering more because I'm waiting for you fools to offer something so that you can be the conductor of your own track and receive contributions from the other two bastards. Get on that shit right now!

    "Sometime, you're going to have to give me so detailed explanation of how you manage to use 30 tracks for guitar! I totally don't get it."

    A guitar track only lasts as long as it's section, and every guitar in every section is treated completely different. Also, they're not all going at once. I shape a tracks tone and effects, then consider it disposable after it's job is done.

    Say my intro has 3 different guitar lines, all double-tracked. L and R acoustic, L and R rhythm, and L and R lead. There's 6 tracks. I lose the acoustic in the next part but have two new guitar lines with very different tones than the intro. Up to 10 now, and that is just an intro and first section. Add 2 quiet double-tracked acoustic tracks with another double-tracked palm-mutes layer under it all. We're at 16 guitar tracks, and not out of the first main section. Basically, when going into a new section, I build from a blank slate to help me keep the tones and feel evolving.

    I'll send some of my false-starts in dropbox to see if there is interest between you bastards.

    Evan, who neednt the courage to kick your ass directly.

    Planetjazzbass on Wed 8th Feb 2017 - 7 years ago

    Ok listening now at a fairly cranked level, guitars and drums sound great!..the bass is quite boomy though, rolling off a tad at 70/80Hz should fix it...I have my sub set at about -20db which I find is perfect, no doubt urban producers crank theirs until the bowel shakes (but then it's indecipherable noise)...a very cool track indeed and I'm left with the fading image of some trainee landscaper applying gauze to his damaged hands....ps I had a similar experience with a 120lb jackhammer, though I wasn't acting cocky at the time, the boss of the ski lift building company was an ex mercenary and really liked to put us through the mill.

    Reply by Evisma

    My jackhammer issues were odd. Body and hands were fine, but something happened to my jaw throughout a few days. I'm sure you've experience the effects of vibrations when mowing for long periods or running heavy equipment, the resonating chirping tone produced in the head by teeth touching or any impact at all. Something with the inner ear and the fluid vibrating all day, but every sound, movement, sniff, twitch and breeze sounded like someone in my head hit a metal streetlight pole with a box-wrench. DING! Strangest thing, lasted about 12 hours, went away overnight. I was demolishing a front and back porch that were 2 concrete slabs, one poured on top of the other, (yeah), and an in-ground pool. My stints are usually short. I have more issues building decks and setting retaining walls. Tendonitis is a bitch. A week straight of pounding with a sledge on a bottom course of wall-blocks takes it's toll. Ice pack, ice pack. 15 minutes on, 45 off. Works wonders when done religiously.

    Hey, sorry about the prank phone calls your country has been getting from over here. The guy has his own phone and can afford to put minutes on it, so there's not a lot we can do.

    You guys should block his number.

    Consider yourself regreeted in a smart, witty manner. I can never come up with that sort of greeting so you'll have to make up your own.

    Excellent greeting in your last reply.

    Yes, good idea about the Bible-based Team Evisma puppet movie. Your team could scape the shit out of the Garden of Eden. Just watch out for the annoying snake. And perhaps then move on to The Hanging Gardens of Babylon (even if they don't feature in the good book).

    Jesus will be the head of the team and the greatest landscaper on the planet, with carpentry as just a casual hobby. No one can seed slit quite like he can. For breaking local zoning and environmental laws, the Romans will attempt to crucify him on a cross made of spades.

    But then modern day Evisma (that's you) will borrow Skynet's time portal, make some modifications and send back some brush hoggers and lawnmowers. Your ancient team will use them to stomp some Roman ass and rescue Jesus from the cross. A religion is then created around the heroic exploits of Team Evisma and world history is altered forever. Jesus lives!

    Not too much more to say about this well made track. It's enjoyable to listen to each time. No problem with the EQ or mix. Everything's clear and well balanced. I use additive EQ all the time and not much subtractive.

    1:54 nice fill!

    An "assive crash" is one played by the ass. Gives a different tone to one hit by a stick. Maybe you haven't yet found the Assive option in Superior.

    nd section is triumphantly cool. Maybe I'm wrong about it needing more hat or crash. That's just my heavy preference.

    Reply by Evisma

    Howdy, habitual handler of hefty hand-hewn herring-handled handsaws.

    Fantastic movie ideas. If a lot of money was put behind it and it was done right, it would be a totally badass movie. Better than 99 percent of the shit coming out anymore.

    "Maybe you haven't yet found the Assive option in Superior."

    I have not, but surely it's under Tools.

    "Maybe I'm wrong about it needing more hat or crash."

    NO, I went in and turned them up a bit. I automated a bit of a cut in the lows of the overheads so there wouldn't be any ducking from compression. I was having an issue with that. Even light compression on the Master was giving me issues. Lots of automation.

    Almost 2:00 in on another track. Bass and drums right now. I'm trying to write in a more linear fashion, instead of chunk by chunk. I may drop a mixdown in Dropbox. Mr. V mentioned having the next Bastard File, so I'll just keep going till it's my go at it, or I write something that seems fitting for it. So much bass in the one I'm on now, it may be a good contender as well. We'll see.

    Greetings, Steve.

    Ah, yes. Murica. Where over half the population helplessly watch the dismantling of everything, while the rest wait in silence, watching the upheaval, gauging whether or not they can publicly support this shit. Misdirection and subterfuge abound!. There is some hideous shit going on in the background, I'm sure.

    What blows my mind is this; How can one defend the removal of all press from the White House? Doesn't that clearly show that the administration is doing shit that they can't even let their supporters know about? If they were doing the will of the "majority" of voters, the press is the top tool for communicating these achievements to the public.

    Anyfuckinway......... man, it all pisses me off. Fuck!!!!

    .....sorry. Let this be the end of our discussing Murica's 4 year parade of shame. Music is supposed to be the distraction and relief from it all.

    I'm glad you liked the track. It likes you back.

    Welcome to blisterland!...any guitarist who hadn't kept his calluses in good shape would have found himself in the emergency department after this, Evan this is epic! The first part of the arrangement is like a tidal bore coming down a narrowing river, most spectators were washed away, I don't think I've heard a better confluence of Superior drummer with guitar their hand in glove, the second part of the arrangement is quite sublime and creates a very intuitive release both from an emotive and production standpoint. Heavily driven guitars are notoriously difficult to mix and can easily overburden, mask and in some cases totally defeat adjoining instrument frequencies, absolutely no sign of that! There is only one slight caveat that I will mention here, I'm listening to this track through my headphones and it sounds great, however I want to give it what it really deserves some proper volume through my monitors with a sub engaged...so after "she" who must be obeyed goes out I will crank this bad boy up a tad and continue this review....cheers Dave

    Reply by Evisma

    Greetings, Dave.

    It's been a while since I got blisters, but I remember them well. I do have the permanent dents in the fingertip calluses that have very little feeling anymore. Doing landscaping for over a decade, I keep some pretty healthy calluses. It's always been a true joy of mine to see a kid spend his very first 8 hour shift with a post-hole digger. Hands peel apart without leather-palmed gloves, though they think they can handle it, and shoulders burn within 10 minutes. The look of defeat on the face of a cocky, phonegazing douche bag is a beautiful thing.

    This is my second track using Superior. This is from the Progressive EZX, though I really want the $150 SDX. I'm really happy that it works well with the guitars. I spent a few days just assembling drum sets and saving them as user presets. This track really tapped my CPU, also. There were several things I had to always shut off before this thing would even play. Toward the end, I didn't know what the fixes in a mixdown would sound like till I listened to the mixdown. Playback in the DAW was not possible with all the buses and reverbs activated. 8 year old PC.

    Now, I am not a master at mixing the low end, so be careful if you crank it. If there is a part that makes the door hinge pins rattle a bit TOO much, let me know.

    "She Who Must Be Obeyed" would be an awesome track title.

    Take care, and thanks again.

    Really enjoyed this epic trek through badass guitar land. The playing is super great. This is not a criticism but the one thing I would do if this were my track is to try silencing the drums, possibly throughout but at least in the middle part after the break. The beat is in the guitars and, without the drum, you could hear every nuance a little bit better, and to me the guitar is like tangerine juice - you want every drop. Great work.

    Reply by Evisma

    I really appreciate your feedback!

    "...in the middle part after the break"

    Are you saying no drums in the quiet section, before the distorted guitars come back in? And possibly after? Surely the ending drums have to stay, but I'll listen to it with the break percussion free and keep an open mind.

    Thanks again.

    Fuck yeah!
    Uploading another nice track
    To save the mothafuckin' day yeah!

    I'd like to see a puppet-based Team Evisma movie. It would feature a team of genuine landscapers whose covert role is to scape the land of suspected Islamic terrorists living in America. And then, when the time is right, call in the drone strike, with The DTrump pressing the buttons himself. Along the way, the team would have to deal with various other issues, such as guys trying to marry the team's female family members in order to take advantage of the sweet family discount.

    Now let's get down to some wave-based business:

    Bangin' riffage intro. Just a fat, fat sound and good, somewhat complex riffs.

    0:40 of course there just has to be a reverse in there. And others not long after.

    0:41 clean palm muting and good interplay between the widdly bass and guitar parts.

    Now another lead with a good but controlled bit of delay.

    1:46 that's a good, simple banging riff. Nice space with the drum hits.

    2:05 chill grooving progressive stuff. All the guitar and bass so far is recognisable your style, which might be a way of saying it's nothing very new to my ears. Not sure if that's a criticism.

    2:41 is a good transition. The kind of delicate but purposeful chilling I like.

    3:02 return of an earlier guitar part, I think. I guess this section is slightly Toolish. Not necessarily their riffs but more the progressive, melodic vibe and obvious rock feel. Sounds like a good, cohesive band, not just one Bass Bro doing it all.

    4:49 cool lead. Meshes nicely with the underlying riff. Only complaint is that there should be a fatter open hat or assive crash to really propel the section forward. The kind of thing I do a lot in final, "how heavy can I go?" endings.

    Excellent ending, with nice tom rolls. So much better than a fadeout!

    Greetings, gangly gunt groping giver of gallons of guy gravy.

    My puppet movie will not be of landscapers helping take out terrorists. I'd have to do the bible. No getting around it. Genesis alone would be great. Nobody knows where the people from Nod came from, but not has wifi and broadband, so Eve is totally pissed off. Job would be a good one, as well. Hilarious if it was done right. Anyway....

    Not a lot to answer, seeing that you seem to mostly say you like it, which is awesome. I spent a long time shuffling stuff and doing EQ. I plan to do more heavy stuff for a while, since I have the drum capabilities now.

    "3:02 return of an earlier guitar part, I think."

    No. Nothing repeats outside of it's original section. I tried to make a constantly progressing tumultuous first half, with a calm, floating section full of harmonics, sliding and hammering/pulling, that went into a "fuck yeah" riff for a finish.

    "....there should be a fatter open hat or assive ((hehe)) crash to really propel the section forward."

    I did. It was really cutting into the high-mids that the guitars are taking and I found nothing that worked well. There is the constant crash, and others in fills, but I'll bring it up more and see it I can help that.

    Spent the last few nights making presets in my DAW for different distorted rig setups. 10 or 12 amp sims, 4 or 6 I really like. Lepou's Lecto amp through Catharsis impulses have been the best combo I've found so far. Not sure if you looked into the amp and cab sims, but I've really enjoying it. It has definitely helping with the rut I was in.

    Right now, I'm looking into a better way to monitor from headphones, crap computer speakers and my bass amp combo, without wearing out the one headphone jack on my interface from switching between the three. Thinking of 2 Y-splitters daisy-chained, giving 1 male and 3 female 1/4 inputs. The adapters are under $5 each. Interface is $200. I'd rather wear out and replace the adapters.

    I hope it's going well on your end.

    Evan, devours tacos to survive. So it is,... So it's always been.

    Wow....you got that big arena rock thing...but you have laid some really fine melodic rock in there...This is rock composed with a lot of thought and delivered with a big pile of talent...fabulous track my friend...perhaps your best..sounds.tone totally on the money and the production is top class..so whats left to say...the whole thing is just an excellent piece of rock music that as far as I am concerned would blow away a lot of the so-called pros...you are a pro......
    I haven`t mic`d an amp for years Evan...just through my preamp or processor into the mixer...Standing ovation.....Ed

    Greetings, Ed.

    I appreciate the kind words. I spent about a month with it in various forms and with a lot of problems. I'm trying to remove the crutch of effects I've always leaned on and focusing on fundamentals. Everything I don't like about my playing is in the hands. No other factors matter. Gotta keep a guitar in my hands if I want to get better. I'm not a fast player, or really very technical, but I like the feeling of what I write. Executing it is usually my downfall.

    I appreciate you stopping by. I hope all is well with you.

    Take care.

    Dear Evan!

    That's powerful, innovative and unique. When I hear your creatures I always wanna go back to my younghood when we wanted to play music like this but we weren't able...:-) that was 30 years before...noone knew about guitar low tuning and stg like hat...this magical piece is giving me a mirror how looser we were at that time...:-)
    the opening and the last parts are like a southern rock/metal themes...and the middle parts the jammy tunes...as your bests...no idea for the mix cause I donno mix but I doncare mix cause it's good on it's being...aewsome guitars over the number...and the drum tone is cool too...
    thanx for the upload, long live your creativity, handshake, Danke

    Greetings, Danke.

    Good to hear from you! I'm glad you liked it.

    I'm not seriously detuned, like you hear in modern Djent and everything. I'm down a half-step, with my low E down another full step. So my tuning is C# G# C# F# A# D#. Basically drop-D with everything down one fret. My strings are 11s.

    I hope you are doing well! Take care.

    Great work here Evisma! Those guitars are sounding great and very heavy. Normally I think music is required a little EQ here and there, but this track does a terrific job without the use of it. The mixing sounds great on my end, but then again my monitor setup isn't the best setup to hear all of the frequencies properly. Maybe others could be of better to help you there. Overall I think you've done a pretty good job at delivering a great rock track. The only thing missing is a nice of vocals.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Glad you liked it! Now, I did use EQ in this track, but only subtractive. I did no boosting, only cutting. With a super tight Q, I boost a parameter's gain 12db or more, then starting in the highs, I slowly move the boosted parameter through the frequencies till I get a "singing" or "whistling" frequency that cuts out other instruments, then I drop the parameter's gain to about -5db, eliminating that bad frequency with a 5db cut. A tight Q keeps me from cutting out the good stuff. Doing this has helped immensely when it comes to phase and odd frequency cancellations.

    I appreciate the feedback, and yes, when I find a nice vocal, I shall apply it. Thank you, good sir.

    Take care.

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 : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.
