Description : Living in the Pacific Northwest, USA, I am surrounded by countless acres of forests and mountains. Having experienced them, I know that with as beautiful and serene as they can be, so too, they can be cold, deadly and unforgiving. That's what this song is about. The wide spectrum of emotions one can feel when alone in the forest. Whether you want to be or not. Let me know what you think. --- Take care. V.

    Thanks, bud.

    I'm really not one to mix words, or candy coat. I'm not a dick about it, just straightforward and no bull.

    Have a good one.

    Thanks for listening and commenting. Apparently, you just don't like long songs. Which, a lot of mine are. Listen at you r own discretion, I guess.

    Thanks again.

    There was once a great guitarist that was on Looperman quite frequently. I once saw him comment in a forum post that a guitar VST was good for backing tracks or simple effects, but could never be good enough to make a complete track.

    Even with the tremendous amount of respect that I have for this man, I took that as a personal challenge. So, I set out to make a few tracks that you couldn't really tell if it was live, or VST. I like to think I came close enough with this one and the "Overmyth" series.

    HA! No. No sex bots here. It's not funky enough!

    Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.

    Take care.

    Yep, learning metal riffs right now since I put my toes into learning more about metal creation, you have that authentic sound that will be impossible to achieve from a vst. 6+ minutes definitely my favorite part.

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Centrist, Hello. Thanks for the kind words. But I can absolutely guarantee you that it's not impossible to achieve authentic sounding riffs with VST's. That's all this track is. Not a single live instrument was used. 100% software.
    All the riffs were built, by me, one note at a time in my FL piano roll. All of the drums were mixed and built one hit at a time to go with each riff. Same with the bass and acoustic guitars.

    It can be done!

    Thanks again, for taking time to listen and comment.

    Take care.

    That's fantastic guitar playing and guitar production. Really correct and epic. There's plenty of room for a singer too. well done.

    Thank you for the kind words. I wish I could accept your compliment on the guitar playing, but really, it's all VST. Programmed.

    Thank you again.

    Thanks, man. There was a time when you did hear more rock and metal here. But, those days are long gone. As far as the 8 minutes...that's a short track for Doom Metal, my friend!

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    Very cool intro. Very grandiose. Personally, as far as influence, I hear Black Sabbath and a touch of Metallica. Your drums are fantastic, but maybe need just a small boost to the low end. The switch to that Mr. Crowley organ at 3:54 was awesome. In total, a great progressive metal song. Doesn't even need vocals. The music speaks for itself.

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Heath, first let me apologize for the year long delay. I kinda dropped this track here and got busy with life and forgot about it.

    Second. Thank you for not only taking the time to listen to it, but to leave a kind comment as well. I always find it interesting to know what others hear in my work. The fact that you heard Black Sabbath and Metallica is no surprise to me. Those were two of the earliest and most influential bands of my teen years. You may not hear it, but there's even some Pink Floyd in there. Some of the Old Timer Loopermen that are familiar with me and my work may pick it up. They know that I'm a Floyd Junkie..

    Anyhow, again, thank you for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the track.

    Take care.

    Yo, Mossy Mother Mountain Chopper.

    I couldn't understand why there wasn't a comment by me on this from last year. Then I remembered that I probably did a big review on Facebook. Still well worth listening again to this massive mossterpiece.

    First 1:30 is a bit noisy but that's OK. And then the badassery makes itself known and takes over from the somewhat Celtic previous stuff. Slightly reminiscent of Led Zep's folkier stuff, which then gets totally smashed out of the way.

    2:38-2:44 I could have done with a fat kick but it's a stylistic choice to do without.

    2:58 swing your hairy heads, metallers! And then get widdling on your air guitars.

    Nice organ (ic), Floydy break after that. Back to the forest from the huge mountain.

    4:48 that's the fat kick I was referring to before (when it wasn't there).

    6:24 fukcin' badass skullcrushery!

    7:05 haha to that widdly guit fiddlin!

    7:20 saving the best riffs to the end. Nice stops and space.

    Wicked guitars throughout. Maybe as I don't really play anymore I should just Shreddage it up. Nah, real playing's always better. Unless you can do this.

    Mountainous congrats again. Badass bear music!

    I think that the most impressive element of this track is the clean sound and overall great engineering and mixing you did. I come from a metal background, and I know that it can be very hard to achieve a clean sound within this genre. You did a great job with that. The guitar playing is pretty good. Good job!

    Reply by ValveDriver


    I apologize for the year long delay. But, better late than never, huh?

    Thank you for the kind words. I think, for a 100% solo project, as far as the heavy metal engineering and mixing goes, that takes longer to perfect than the writing and composition of the track itself.

    Take care.

    I started to listen , but that intro made me have to go pee. Damn getting old. Ok, back to the creepy plucks and then that brass sound. Intense opening my friend and sounds great in my earphones with awesome placement. Then that cymbal crash. Sabbath like beats, Then that phased sound kicks off like a demon spewing filth from it unholy mouth. Then 2:35 the guitar riffs kick in with the tom and massive snare attack. Holy Wah effects man. Amazing at this point. You bring it down at 3:54 to some clearing in the forest where the rites will be performed whether you want them or not. Beautiful arrangement so far. 6min mark brings some heavy back. Like your climbing that mountain with a heavy load, shedding all the differential weight on the ascent. As crowded this is with distortion I can still hear all the elements, so amazing production. Awesome ending with the crash. Loved it Mate. Loved it.

    A very solid and nice track indeed. I certainly did dig it. Love the grudgy and roughy guitar elements in it. At the same time, it was like, i was listening to two different songs at the same time. The metal part, as well as a sort of tranquil nature track. So i did loved the elements that you did combine all together. So a job well done. Keep up the good work and keep on creating.

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Verdiqo, thank you for the kind words. I like your take on the song, and how it felt like 2 songs at once. That wasn't my intention, but I like the idea just the same!

    Thank you again, it's always appreciated.

    Definitely feeling a little Floyd...especially in the lower/mellower build & break bits (love that organ part)...kudos on the thoughtful composing that obviously went into this..it evolves like a musical story...perfectly arranged as far as my tastes go...I can imagine the amount of creative time that must have gone into this (I wish some of our looper types would take lessons from it)....Can`t offer high enough praise Aaron...and sure dont have anything to otherwise offer other than to say....even though I`m not a big metal fan (unless Floyd & Metallica count) I enjoyed listening to this whole thing.....and its not too long...my ears were still at full attention to the last note...Big well done to you.....keep on.....Ed

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Ed. Sorry for the late reply. Honestly, I wasn't sure how to respond to such high praise.
    Suggesting that others could learn from my work is quite a compliment. Which would be a cool idea for a thread post. "Pick a looper, and break down one of their tracks." Then dissect it part by part as you describe your interpretation of it, or even on a technical level.
    There is definitely a little Floyd in it. I think at this point, everything I do has just a touch somewhere in it. I dont think I can escape that!
    Like I said to Neo, its good to hear that my arrangements are satisfactory. Sometimes, that's one of my biggest hangups.

    Floyd and Metallica definitely count. Even though now-a-days Metallica isnt as high on my list of favorites, back in the day they were the top of the tier.

    Thank you, Ed for continuously taking time to listen and comment. Your endless support and encouragement means a lot to me. Especially knowing that metal isnt at the top of your list!

    Sincerely, do take care!

    .....Damn! continued:

    I forgot to mention a few things in my first comment. Dude, I have had to listen to this several times. Your playing has really evolved and I'm seriously amazed. I know your into a lot of different forms of Metal and as such, influenced by many bands but if I had to pick one this really reminds me of its Mastodon. The heavy rhythm chugs and fat notes sound very close especially tone wise and the mixture of Prog Rock/Metal, Psychedelia is yet another similarity. I'm hoping you are feverishly working on the next installment. Oh and yeah, danke makes a good point in reference to your extended track times and that maybe you may have to take up the mantle since it appears that StaticNomad has dropped off the grid. He once was the undisputed king, the so-called Looperman Long Shanks of track times but alas, it looks as though his reign has now come to an end and its time to name his successor. ( I'm laying it on thick here in case he reads this in hope to flush him out and goad him back into action, ha ha)! It surely looks like your up to the task. Ok bro, enough with the proverbial butt slapping and high fives. Get to work on part "Deux" brother !

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Alright, let's try this again.

    You are correct about there being some serious nature out here. The bear thing, yeah, that's real, man. There have been a few times I was out and about and noticed that I wasn't alone. Once I was at this little mountain pond, walking around in the woods, and I looked down and saw some really fresh bear tracks. Around them, were smaller bear tracks. Which, as I'm sure you can guess, meant there was a mama bear and her cubs, and anyone who has any survival instincts at all knows...you come across mamma bear and her kiddo's...you get the hell out of Dodge. Which is exactly what I did.

    The intro to this song is supposed to be an acoustic guitar. I was using Philharmonik VST. Not the greatest, but with a little creativity, I got it to sound fitting at least.

    I'm relieved to hear that the transitions and leads were good. Those are the two things I have the hardest time with I can come up with rhythms and riffs all day long, but coming up with them so they flow together organically, that's the tricky part. Same with leads. Getting them to follow the song without just being a bunch of notes thrown together like a roll of the dice is really difficult for me. I'm just not a lead kind of guy.

    "Your playing has really evolved and I'm seriously amazed."

    Dude, that is a huge compliment, and means a lot! Thank you for that, man!

    As far as the Mastodon influence...definitely. It wasn't a conscious thing, but much like Pink Floyd, I've listened to so much of them, it just kind of naturally comes out. As far as my "drumming" goes, Brann Dailor is by far one of my biggest influences.

    I am in fact working on the next installment. It's not going to smooth at the moment. I kind of his a spot where it could go one of two ways, and I'm not really sure which way to choose. SO, I'm sitting on it for a week or so. Then I can go back and listen again. Once I do, I'll know exactly where to go with it.

    I will pass on to StaticNomad that his empty throne has been filled. I've been trying to get him off his ass, too. Maybe this will be encouragement. If not, we'll have to start referring to him as StaticNowhereToBeFoundMad.

    Tell ya what, man. Next time you head out this way, let me know. I'll take you out for a beer or something.

    Take care, brother.

    Neomorpheus on Sun 5th Aug 2018 - 3 years ago

    That's a bad ass track man.

    I read your description before playing it and having visited your neck of the woods several times in the past, was reminded of one occasion when I ended up on an excursion with some friends from Portland. We piled into a van and headed into the forest on a dirt road for miles up some mountain to pick Huckle berries and mushrooms! I saw Bear warning signs along the road !! We got out and wandered into the woods and walked around for a few hours. Yeah it was beautiful, huge trees, rivers and lakes everywhere but I was scared shitless the whole time thinking I was going to end ripped to shreads by some man eating bear! Listening to this track and thinking back on that crazy adventure did stir some emotions, mainly fear and anxiety. There is definitely some serious nature there in Washington and Oregon no doubt.

    But, back to the track. This thing plays like some kind of a metal rock opera. I seriously dig all the guitar variation here, particularly the melodic stuff. It also incorporates a nice mixture of styles from slow Doom/Melodic Death metal grooves to the more aggressive Hardcore/Metal Core blastbeat rhythms. Super tasty structuring throughout. Love that intro. Hard to tell if its acoustic guitar or a harpsicord (strings or keys), but its mighty cool all the same. Also some really nice articulation within those lead notes, the portamento slides and cross fades are sweet and really add some fabulous dimension. Aaron I gotta say you killed it here man. I was just digging each and every one of the transitions in here. Super heavy riffs in the outtro and I cant forget to mention the superb drum track, all combine to make this one awesome piece of metal music. I'm really looking forward to the next part of this one !

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Dude, I was about three quarters of the way through a big-ass reply to your second comment up there, and my damn phone glitched out and I lost the whole damn thing. I'm at work right now, so I'm saying F it. I'll wait until tomorrow when I can sit down at my 'puter and type it out properly. So, real reply coming soon. Until then, if you haven't already, check out a little band called Glowsun. If Pelican and Karma To Burn had a kid, it would be these guys.

    Back at'cha soon.

    No doubt...a masterpiece !!! Splendidly structured with brilliant buildup and growing tension combined with parts more relaxed, for example that break at 3:53 is simply magical, and on top of all brilliant sound and production...or in one sentence top notch treat on all levels! Aaron, sincerely, this must be one of your best (if not the best) metal creations...well, maybe even overall!!

    Hat's off_____Leon

    Reply by ValveDriver

    Wow, Leon. That's some very positive feedback! Truly appreciated! For years my work came from an angry place, but over the last 3 years or so,(and a lot of introspection), I've managed to let go of it all. Now my work is inspired by that which surrounds me. In this case, nature. I believe by letting that happen, it's opened up a new door for creativity, and the results thereof!

    Thank you for your kind words and continuing support.

    Take care.

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.

Tags : | Heavy Metal | 9.94 MB

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...

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!
My latest work. It would be awesome to find a singer for this.. 105 BPM

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!
