Description : This is the third and final installation of the Overmyth trilogy. Each of the three parts represents a period of my life, and the events that have taken place over the last 3 years. The first, "Overmyth I - Inception Of The Truth" is about the facing the journey ahead, and setting out to deal with it. You can hear it here, https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/184039. The second part, "Overmyth II - Cathedral Of The Witch" is about the outer obstacles that were standing in my way that I needed to overcome. It can be heard here, https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/184868. This track. "Overmyth III - Conquering The Bathelyst" is about my inner obstacles. My own insecurities and fears that I needed to conquer in order to finish the 3 year journey, before I could be at peace with myself and the decisions I've had to make along the way. As far as the creation of the song, on a technical standpoint, it was made with EZ Drummer, Shreddage II guitar VST, Scarbee Rickenbocker bass VST, and a little bit of Sylenth1. It's in the Heavy Metal genre, but more specifically, Doom Metal. Inspired by bands like Monolord, Yob, Cough, etc. So, it's a slow, low and heavy aural assult. I started this track in October of 2016, and put in a total working time of 389 hours. That's a total of 16 days if I were to have worked straight through. So, hopefully you like it. I put a lot into it. There are a few things I'm not totally satisfied with, but without using any live instruments, it's going to be impossible to get exactly what I wanted. Thanks for listening. Enjoy. V.

    Fantastic work indeed. truly an epic sized track. I loved it.

    I have at least 675 original written pieces and currently I am working out the beats for two or three of them. I have been wanting to do a Rap/Horrorcore Sort of sound to a heavy Metal instrumental.
    I have a piece in particular called Dangerous Gentleman.

    Its about an apex predator from another planet that came to Earth for his end of times and ultimately his death. But hes not quite dead yet...as someone wil soon see for themselves..
    The story, would work out really well. I mean its dark, its mean, its raw...Its a little funny, ..a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll.. lol.

    The last two are bullshit..I was channeling DonnyandMarie..lol. Thats probably a deal breaker!
    I wont screech yell roar the lyrics myself with my voice onto the track...But i have someone in mind hes fantastic. Unless you have a band and maybe you have a throat in mind.

    My name is Brad B...I go by InsipidB.
    I see that your keeping tight control of this track with no downloading...and I think thats very smart because it is fantastic..But could you, would you want to loosen the chains so that we could collaborate on this one. This lyric i wrote I believe is pretty damn good and about 6 mins long as well. If you feel apprehensive as a show of good faith i can send you my piece, but like you I would like to retain rights to it. In the event your curious to hear them together than I am down MAN! I would mule in drugs over the boarder in my arse to persuade you to agree to this Merging of Mind and Music. I have no great aspirations in music except to one day hear one of my written pieces on the radio.

    SO I can talk to my friend about laying down a track...We can do it anyway you want...any site you choose. I have accounts here, SOundCloud and Smule...Sing! App.
    I also run Audacity and im learning LMMS software as well.

    Well forgive me for such a long text. I just heard it and started rapping to it and i felt like yeah this is a good pairing.
    Hope your well, Thanks for the tune..I hope to hear from you. InsipidB

    Reply by ValveDriver InsipidB. Hello. First, my apologoies for the delayed reply. I'm very busy these days.

    I appteciate the fact that this track inspired you so heavily. The project you have in mind sounds pretty creative and fun. But, this track is finished, and not up for collaboration. As it's part of a very personal trilogy. However, I'm not opposed to creating a new piece custom to your project. If you'd like to send me the vocal track, I can buold around it with a few different ideas to see if its something you'd want to continue with. Just get ahold of me through the site here.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Take care.

    Let's drink 389 glasses of whiskey once to die...then I'm going to go with you with the 2-bed detoxication after this song ...one of my favourite metal style is the doom (start from Sabbath of course...)
    that opening bass is sharp as knife...later those heavy guitars are like tones of bricks...
    METAL OPUS, we can say but under there were many glamorous and generous guys to tell you properly what we feel about this track...

    hugh work Aaron, thanx for the upload, handshake with the fav of course, Danke

    I saw where Tumbleweed commented on this track and I figured if HE had good things to say about it, it would be worth a couple of swigs of ginger ale while I stayed put to listen to it. It was heavy alright, my desktop whined a bit. It was very busy yet you didn't have anything stepping on anything else (like what nags at me when I make a track). I would ever be able to sit still long enough to spend 389 hours on one tune. My threshold for being ready to wind down comes a lot sooner than a year/year and a half. I was intrigued by how much you seamlessly feathered these many instruments together like a genuine band. Sometimes I find some wicked loops that mes together like peanut butter & jelly and it makes me feel so good when people don't realize that I'm using loops and compliment me on my guitar playing! You have mastered the art of looping and knob-fiddling very well. Kudos, vic
    ValveDriver
    Reply by ValveDriver Vigwig, how are you? Thanks for stopping by. Even if it was inspired by Tumbleweed.

    Typically, I don't spend that much time on one track. But, like Neomorpheus said, I am a perfectionist. Getting my loops to mesh together took a lot of working and reworking. I would come up with a great riff, but then would have to rework it to get the flow right with the one before or after it. A lot of times it was just one note sounding off. Whether it was in the wrong place kn the scale, or too much or too little sustain. Palm mute or open. There were a lot of obstacles in thatvsense. Then, much like Staticnomad said, there was a lot of fiddling about with settings. I had a hell of a time getting my mix right. So, between being a perfectionist, and stubborn as hell, it took a long time, and I wasnt going to let it beat me. Kind of fitting really. Considering the meaning of this track.

    Thanks again for the kind words, I hope all is well with you.

    Take care.

    Man....I hardly know what to say about this...if you didn`t say otherwise I would just accept the guitars as a performance by a mighty talented metal group...I can`t imagine the time, effort and talent you put into this Aaron...but the results are evidence....just a superb example of a metal composition, arranged, performed and delivered so well that even a mellow old guitar dude like me has to stand up and say BRAVO.......Ed
    ValveDriver
    Reply by ValveDriver Ed, good to hear from you.

    I definitely put a lot of time into this one. There were a lot of riffs that got cut and reformed. This was one of those tracks thatvwas nothing but trouble for the longest time. But, Iwasn't about to let it win! I'm too stubborn to let that happen.
    Like I told Eric, it always means a lot when talented musicians like yourself compliment my work. It keeps me wanting to not only do more, but constantly improve. So, with that being said, thank you!

    Take care my friend!

    Yes the Metal Gods are without a doubt much appeased with this offering ! The much anticipated third and final installment of the Overmyth trilogy.

    Sup Aaron !

    Damn bro I'm almost inclined to dub you the George Lucas of Metal. Waiting for your tracks is a bit like waiting on George to bestow another movie on his aging fandome! (haha) jk man !!

    Hey I know your a bit of a perfectionist for one and also this virtual guitar playing gig is no easy task if your trying to get realistic results. I'm really impressed with what you have been able to do with Shreddage. I still haven't mustered up enough patience for a serious attempt to use it. I think its cool as hell and definitely has more than enough capability to deliver some fabulous metal guitar as you have proven here. Are you using Revolver for amp sim? Just curious of your cab choices and effects chain set up. Love the thick tone and very creamy fuzz/distortion. After a couple of listens to just enjoy the music I started some closer examination and first off noted your combinations of sustains and palm mutes for the rhythms. Got to ish some props. The velocities and chord thresholds are well set up. Very realistic sounding man. The more I listen to it the more impressed I get. The bass and drum sections are very well done too and I'm particularly happy that you maintained your self control to keep it from being overly programmed with too much speed drumming. In fact the drums are so good they can pass for the real thing. If you programmed everything yourself that's a pretty amazing job. Many wont realize the effort required in syncing the drums and bass with the guitar chops which is a staple element for this type of music. Composition and structure wise its pretty solid and true to form Doom Metal. The intro is perfect and does the job to create the right atmosphere and some real nice sinister notes with heavy reverb combines with the bass and drums to usher in the opening melody. This is almost cinematic, which you do very well and is a bit of ValveDriver trademark. That big wall of sound you create, as StaticNomad ponted out, is awesome and really adds a lot of depth and power to the mix. Oh yeah! I love those power chords man! Some really nice breakdowns there and those riff unisons are SWEEEEET ! Yeah I was waiting for a tempo change and got my wish at 4:48, nice !! Aww, those power chugs and then the big break, love that. Good outtro section too. Dude you nailed this bitch. I dig every inch of it. As always I'm super stoked to see you back on the board with another track release. I like the direction you've taken with the addition of virtual guitar. You've certainly opened up a whole new realm of possibilities for your music. Good stuff my friend. Keep it coming.

    later.

    Reply by ValveDriver Well, it's another delayed reply, but here we go!!

    Being compared to George Lucas isn't a bad thing! Lord knows, if Disney ever wanted to buy my work, I wouldn't hesitate either!

    "Are you using Revolver for amp sim?"

    No sir. I am not. A few years ago I picked up a real life guitar with every intention of learning it. So, with it, I bought a Pod Farm interface that has a ton of amp sims, cabs, and effect pedals.
    I used what I believe is supposed to be the eqivalent of a Marshall. That alone has a pretty decent distortion with the gain knob. Then I just tweaked the bass, treble and mids in the preamp to kind of make it pop. I have two guitar tracks panned out to 70% on each side, then each linked to the same master track, where I put a little compression and some more fine tuning with a parametric EQ, Since the bass guitar played such a dominant role in the sound of this tune, I cut a lot of the low end off the guitars, trying to blend the low end guitar frequencies into the high end bass frequencies. Hoping that there wouldnt be too many trying to overstep, and essentially, evenly covering all across the board.

    The sustained and palm muted riffs. What little I can play on the guitar, is just that. That has always been my favorite way of playing.

    "Too much speed drumming"

    Thats easy for a lot of people to do. I've always loved metal. But when guys just sit there doing nothing but double kicks, blast beats, and ridiculous fills, it gets a little boring. I think there's a time for that, but it certainly isnt the entire song. I like some good rythm in those beats.

    I did program everything myself. Including processing each piece to get the exact sound I wanted. Then placing each hit exactly where it needs to be. A very tedious process, but also very cathartic. Lol.

    I was just talkinng to my lady the other night about how I think my "electro" days are behind me. I've moved into a new chapter of life, and the metal side is where I need to be now. So, I am definitely exploring that new realm of possibilities.

    Thank you for this awesome review, man. As someone who doesn't use live instruments to create music, it's always encouraging to hear such positive feedback from you guys who do.

    Thanks again, Eric. Totally appreciate it, man.

    Take care.

    389 badass greetings, Mr ValveShredder.

    This is some proper, badass shit and remarkable use of Shreddage. Guitarists - who needs them?

    Pretty decent trippy little intro and then at 0:17 the drummer's bell ride opens a dark switch and apocalyptic noise rushes in. Then some solid bass and drums.

    0:52 awesome wailin' g! It's noises like that that make me want to start playing guitar again.

    1:49 chunky chords are riffin' the place up and everytyhing is sitting nicely.

    2:33 some mean, bassy doom. Plus a bit more wailing, psychedelic guitar a little later, which is probably a bit low in the mix. Damn, this is so much like a live band. All the more so because you're not doing what I do and layering different drum kits (plus loops). So it sounds like one drummer at one kit.

    Real nice, wide sound on this. Surely one of your best produced tracks. 1 hour of composing, 388 hours of fiddling about with settings.

    5:22 I like that machine gun variation. These are powerful, proper doom riffage sections.

    Perhaps this is a bit long. It's not the running time that's the issue but the similarity of sounds. Would totally make sense live and be just about the right length.

    So, no real criticisms from me. Except I guess you could have used some different guitar tones/added FX in the second half, just to keep things progressing. A minor criticism - more of an idea, really.

    Big congrats on this proper doom track.

    Overmyth is over? Surely not. I was looking forward to part 124. Oh well, all good things have to come to an end.

    Take care...

    "awesome wailin' g! It's noises like that that make me want to start playing guitar again."

    Do it!

    "...which is probably a bit low in the mix."

    I agree. Someday, I'll go back and fix that.

    " it sounds like one drummer at one kit."

    I figure that's how they do it live, so in order to get the most realistic sound I can, I'd better follow suit.

    "Real nice, wide sound on this. Surely one of your best produced tracks. 1 hour of composing, 388 hours of fiddling about with settings"
    Thanks, man! That's pretty close ro how it was, too.

    Yeah, there wasn't a whole lot of variation in sounds. But by the time I got to about hour 350, I was kind of done with trying to be creative. I just wanted to finish it. However, I'm taking the suggestion with me to the next track. Which I've started. So, about 375 hours over the course of a year and a half from now, I'll post it.

    Until then, take care, man.

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 psychedelic chillout stoner/doom epic. This contains some badass heavy riffage and drumming as well as some big chillout vibes. It was a 2.5 min ending on the end of my last upload but I decided it was too good and distinctive to remain as the end of a track so I removed it and developed things much further though it still feels pretty short. Lots of heavy electric guitar playing as well as some beautiful slow attack lead guitar parts. Other beauty and ambience comes from filter swept violins, two synth pads and some subtle female vocal samples (you won't notice them). Also bass guitar and my usual synth sub bass patch. Two programmed, heavy drum kits and one much lighter one, just to fatten up the sound. There's lots of space and a simple, slow, catchy groove but then it gets heavier and more intense before pulling back out into the open spaces. Let me know your thoughts when you're done rocking out hard and chilling...

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 : Those of you who have been following my recent uploads may have noticed a trend toward heavier music. The main reason for that is my ever growing interest in Progressive Metal. Sometime around early 2003 or so I discovered the band Meshuggah and was totally blown away with the power and complexity of their music. They had just released their "Nothing" album which ushered in the ultra low sonic assult of downtuned slow tempo Alternative Metal, attributed to the newly released 8 string guitar which they quickly adopted as their new sound, pushing Heavy Metal into a whole new territory. This was another milestone in metal music that basically created a whole new sub-genre that many other bands would soon follow. This track is a variant cover of one of the tracks from the album called Nebulous. The original song begins with a different melody and transitions into the main groove here, which I have stayed pretty close to but have added a few dynamic elements of my own. Eight string downtuned to D#, Strymon effects, multiple guitar layers, programmed and live drum samples. Aside from a few areas using synth bass for a bit of drone effect, no other bass is used. Its loud, its super heavy and way out there...Beyond Nebulous.

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!

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 : My Halloween track for this year. Wanted to try some classic sounding heavy metal. Happy Halloween boys and ghouls. Watch out for the Monsters, they're out there! EDIT: Per SN's review I went back through and tried to address some of his critiques. I like the voice so, didn't change it much.
