    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.

    Peace

    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!

    Thanks, the drums have been a big distraction lately, but in a good way. Less music coming out, but I'm entertaining myself fiddling with new sounds. I'm working at making everything realistic. Gettin' there, gettin' there.

    Thanks for the visit, now you be good....

    it's really amazing.
    I read the other comments too , but I really love the way you have played Bass guitar more than tool tracks ! and I didn't feel tool .
    musical form of your composition , and the way you have designed and
    managed that musical variation (2:44) is brilliant .
    congrats .

    Hey Evan, long time brother

    This is sick bro, your hard work and craft skills shines all over this. This has to be by far my favorite track from you. The mix is stellar, I can't find any flaws, it's that good. Everything so balanced and crisp. Did you program the drums? Sounds big, sits very well in the mix and doesn't drown the other instruments. The progressive arrangement is superb, it kept my interest and ear busy. What really strikes me is the tone and presence. Did you use a saturator because it brings out the color on here rather well. I've been using this plugin http://www.shatteredglassaudio.com/product.php?id=104. It's a saturator/preamp compressor, and it adds warmth to my mix and amplify the harmonics, thus making it sound big. It's definitely one of my go to vst. Give it a try, you won't be dissaponted. You'll want to use during mastering because they're both CPU hogs.

    Congrats to you bro, a definite fave in my book. Keep up the great work, we need more hard rockin tunes on here.

    Yes, I programmed all the drums in Superior. I rarely use the midi patterns, but I like to have them to build/take chunks from.

    "Did you use a saturator?"

    Yes. Ferric saturator helped marry the different elements into one room, and I put a touch of reverb on the master to join it all. Also, the Multiband Dynamic Compressor in StudioOne is awesome, so long as you have a healthy respect for it. It can glisten or murder, your choice, so I tread lightly.

    "CPU hog"

    I'm doing a constant dance of turning on and off different things in the mixer so I'm not assaulted with a wall of crackle,

    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 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!

    Reply by Evisma "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.

    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.
    Evisma
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
    Evisma
    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.
    Evisma
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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!

    Reply by Evisma 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 : Almost punk like creation from the old days of The Kyudars Band! Re-recorded only recently in live fashion. All played with real instruments(me on bass guitar). Just don't bother the silly lyrics. ;))

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 : EDIT: Changed intro based on suggestion by StaticNomad, major revamp on drum track as again suggested by StaticNomad and reprised the metal guitar section as the outro based on Valvedriver and Danke suggestions and overall interest by those who commented. Big thanks guys for your expert advice and opinions here. I really think it improved the track and showed me just how much it pays to listen and apply some of the things that are offered up in these reviews. **Second Edit - Adjusted levels and mastered. ***Third Edit - Toned down #2 Crash Cymbal per Crucethus Suggestion

Description : Another rock track which is a little bit more complex than my previous two uploads of the Kyudards Band.
Description : Real electric/bass guitars, Guinness bottles and loads of distortion, delay and aggression. Drums are 4 programmed midi kits, a few loops and many individual samples. Vocal intro has been on repeat in my head for a month, along with the main riff. Guitars are a mile thick and in your face(hehe). A middle section serves as a patch of calm waters. A space for breathing before a last "movement" that is aggressive and my favorite. I'm spending more time writing and recording the guitars, and would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

Description : Here's my first try on Patricia Edwards Acapella. The vocals are bombastic !!! https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/4780 Song still needs some mixing and drum repositioning

Description : Lost all my stems a year ago due to PC crash. Drums could have been more prominent, guitars could have been less brittle, and I could have added my vocals in the mix. Oh well, you live and learn. I might redo this song with vocals added down the road. Mix only, nor mastered. Hope ya like :) Pete Pete

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).

Description : Unfinished track I'm working on, based off of Danke's "Black Roses" piano loop. Looking for a collab! I'm looking to go in a Rock meets Electronic or Dubstep direction, but I'm open to ideas. I have lyrics for a bridge, but it doesn't sound right with just a piano. I need amped up instrumentals. I really want to bring the pre-chorus ("everybody, c'mon, everybody") back at the end, but up an octave up in a belt with some heavy guitars possibly? I really want to amp up this song. Please excuse the piano in the chorus. It's not as beautiful as Danke's arrangement but I needed a change in chords. The song is in E minor by the way. Tempo=

Description : Hello Loopies!!! This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can. For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things. Hope you enjoy it!!! XpekT.
