Description : Hej eveyone!
For the first time in my career I am really satisfied with drum tracking quality and overal drum mix. After switching to passive pickups I decided to give JMC800 one more chance, it isn't my dream guitar tone, but I am ok with it (Mesa Grid Slammer stomp used as overdrive). Dingwall NG3 bass into Darkglass Alpha Omega 900 head. Piano parts recorded on SCHIMMEL KONZERT280 grand piano placed in Finnish National Opera and Ballet.
Let me know your thoughts!

Wow, you got access to some amazing gear and locations :D that would mean nothing if you wouldn't have the talent, the skill and the musicality, and you have that in spades.
Yours is one of those tracks where I like saying: it's not my style but I love hearing it because it's so well done. Kudos!

Hej, Rått. Impressive tune. As the Stanley Cup playoffs are getting deep here in Canada I could hear this tune used as a highlight reel song on Hockey Night in Canada, which is a real honor here. I really like how you use the bass line to anchor minor 7th chords on the guitar strums and picks to really create the gravitas and raw meat of the tune. And the breakdown with the piano was sublime and so tasteful. I really enjoyed my listen tonight both as a punter and as a musician for two entirely different reasons. Well done.

Man, absolute madness. It immediately put me in a trance. I might have wanted to hear the drums clearer somehow, but that may be due to my headphones or just my listening habits - but it works great either way! And what superb guitar work. A non-stop full service!
Cyberflares 27th May 2022 16:18 - 2 years ago

Good metal track. I see what you mean by the guitar tone. It has a certain "unwanted fatness" that I think you were trying to get with of with passive pickups. I don't use active pickups because I beat the hell out of my Gretsch (on medium strings).

Try using you distortion only as the compressor. Also, you can turn down the volume just a hair and that will act as a false compressor.

Also, post cabinet emulators might be your best friend.

Remember, it's not the gear, it's the ear. A good guitar player can improvise a solo with a piece of wire and a broken bottle, to the delight of an audience.

Obviously faved, metal/rock of this quality is super rare here.
thechockehold replied 27th May 2022 - 2 years ago
Tnx fro kind words? means a lot. Yeah its never about the gear. At the begging this project was all about blast beats and hardcore brakedowns and all of my needs were overed by Soldano head, decimator stomp and couple OD pedals. But then, when you decided to consume satan little less often and add some nuances to your music it all has begun. Changing Oranges and Marshalls searching for IT, while trying not to buy some BOUTIQUE bullshit head is a stuggle. Thanks again!

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 : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

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 : In the 1700's the Comanche Indians became known as the Lords of the Southern Plains. The Comanche ruled a region that stretched across New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado and deep into the Texas Panhandle. The most feared and savage warriors of all the tribes of the old West.
Many believe their spirits still ride the night wind here.
