    Sounds like something out of the Doom soundtrack. Not enough of this style on Looperman. Badass track.

    Hi Aaron...although I'm more a fan of your industrial stuff I must admit you're making top class recordings in metal teritory
    as well and this one is no exception. It's true power pack of massive sound that you produce so damn well. Instant fav !

    Leon, hello!

    First, thank you for the kind words. Knowing that metal isn't really in yiur list of favorites, it means a lot more that you still take the time to listen and comment.

    As far as the industrial Valvedriver, stay tuned. Summer months generally bring out the metal in me. But, the colder winter months always seem to be when I do more of my darker, synth driven industrial style. I'm not sure why, though. That's just how it happens.

    As always, I appreciate you stopping by, and always look forward to your input.

    Take care, friend.

    "Forgive my ignorance, but By "...too clean" do you mean tones and production, or the lack of fret noises and other organic artifacts that come from live guitars, or are they too perfectly timed due to being programed in a DAW, or all the above?"

    Aaron, I was only referring to the comparison to Kyuss. They go for a much more raw sound with their guitars with dirty distortion and heavily muted tones.

    No man, I'm not complaining that it doesn't sound real enough. I'm not one of those guys. On the contrary, I love the sound on this and I'm pretty damn impressed and all in on someone that can produce virtual guitar at this level. By the way I have spent countless hours editing guitar tracks to remove string scrapes and pick noises etc. to clean things up. Sometimes it sounds cool but mores times than not it too obvious or annoying. I'm digging what your doing bro, keep it up.

    I knew you weren't complaining, bud. I didn't even consider the thought that you were. I was only asking for the sole purpose of improving my works. I'm all about making it sound as real as possible, and who better to learn from than someone who knows, ya know? I thought maybe there were things I could have done to make it sound
    Either way, man. I always look forward to what you have to say, and I'm always willing to accept pointers and advice, so whenever you might have some, throw it my way, mister!

    Oh Hell yeah,,,well befitting of The Valvedriver,,,,,you really have been nailing the mixes Aaron...this is top class all the hair is growing back in even though metal hasn`t often been my first listening choice....but canT ignore music when its well done with this kind of composing & mixing skills...I have an old 1983 Takamine electric gtr with a couple of Dimarzio high output pickups that does this kind of stuff to a T..tempted to pill it out of its resting place & make a noise...great stuff my friend....keep on...Ed

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Ed, hello!

    I'm not sure what to say, getting that kind of praise from someone of your caliber makes my freakin day, man.

    Man, I wish my hair would grow back after listening to it! I know metal isn't real high on your list of preferred genres, so it means even more to me that you still swing by and listen.
    I think having found and learned the Shreddage vst was a really good rhing for me. Metal IS my favorite genre. And while I had a lot of fun with the electronic, synth based stuff from my early days here, being able to create the music I love just makes it so much easier. It just flows so much more freely.

    As far as dusting off the ol' it! I dare ya! ;)

    Ed, you take care, and as always, I truly appreciate your feedback.

    Ooooo, that sustain is wicked man! Its pretty clean though so I'm guessing its all digital processed. Yeah a nice hard driver here bro. I dig the chord changeups and the drum track is also excellent and very tastefully done. Danke mentioned Kyuss and even though its probably way too clean guitar wise, it does remind me of something they have done. Definitely has a nice stoner groove and sounds great. Always a treat to see another ValveDriver track on the menu. We got to keep this place rockin !

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Neo, what's happnin, brother?

    Yeah, it's all digital all the time with this boy.

    Honestly, I never really got into Kyuss. I love the music, but the guys voice just doesn't do it for me. Which is the case for a lot of bands.

    Forgive my ignorance, but By "...too clean" do you mean tones and productuon, or the lack of fret noises and other organic artifacts that come from live guitars, or are they too perfectly timed due to being programed in a DAW, or all the above?

    I'm glad you like this one. I always look forward to your reviews, man. Thank you!

    Take care, my friend.

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 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 : 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.

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 : 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 :-)

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 : UPDATED!

Description : This unconventional metal track is dedicated to Valvedriver 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 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!
