  • AnimalsAsSummit its like experimental/ambient. it has kind of a flowing compositional style thats pretty different from stuff ive tried in the past; avant-garde classical pieces and film scores influenced me a lot on this in terms of the song structures
    October 1 10:31 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit thanks man! its a pretty personal one, a certain dream i had as a kid really served as the concept for the sound of the whole thing. hope it resonates hard brvh
    October 1 10:12 AM

  • OmairSh Sorry for the delay. I checked your track once, and I really liked it man. Got some great melodies, and I enjoyed the acoustic bridge and transition. Gave the feeling of being in a forest. Coo stuff man, what can't you do Cap
    September 30 09:50 PM
  • SCREAM! Since you reviewed the album I figured you might be interested in the last link I posted in here
    September 30 04:02 PM
  • evilford yeah man it's pretty solid
    September 30 12:39 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey dude I liked your track :]

    September 30 10:57 AM
  • ChoccyPhilly wow, I thought you'd like it, but I didn't think you'd like it that much. Anyway, glad to see it's getting some attention round here!
    September 29 07:05 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly Because you asked me to remind you: fun with it man!
    September 29 02:16 PM
  • Deathbeds I will tonight actually! :)
    September 29 07:58 AM
  • gagnonov few months in southeast asia just for fun with a couple friends. s*** was on POINT tho. tbh i had no idea you were trvth until about 2 days ago.. had your s*** on my to-download list lol. been composing for a jazz-folk-experimental influenced metal project lately and writing and writing and writing for new material on the hip-hop side.. lemme know son
    September 29 02:54 AM
  • DarkNoctus thank you thank you! i hope my advice is useful. and yes, yes i do! got a black metal record, the follow up to my first coming up and then the of solitude and solemn album!
    September 28 08:40 PM
  • Jacquibim Also I'm just keeping away from the site for a bit cause it's taking up too much of my time and it's full of negative vibes at the moment, hope you like the new pic anyways
    September 28 04:11 PM
  • Jacquibim hey dude, just logging back in real quick to show you the lineart for the redone picture:
    September 28 04:09 PM
  • Deathbeds I have listened to Black Horse Plague but I need to re-listen to it. That and Proverbial.
    September 28 02:02 PM
  • Voivod Well I'm not a musician, so I'm not entirely sure. But I have consumed '90s prog metal by the ton, and to be honest, I'm not too keen in listening to 10-20-minute prog songs these days, but that's just me. At the end of the day, you should ignore every opinion out there and shape your music the way you want to, in order to be 100% happy with the result.
    September 28 01:55 AM
  • gagnonov fine son, finally got back from asia, was ready to put in some work but dayummmmmm.. lemme know if you got some other projects going on, always a pleasure to work with others, be it hip-hop or metal or whatever the ****
    September 28 01:09 AM
  • gagnonov how's the hip-hop project coming along?
    September 27 11:06 PM
  • OmairSh Fo shizniz, will get back to you
    September 27 08:24 PM
  • Voivod Heard the track twice, I liked it, but see if you can shorted the duration of the track without losing in essence. That's just me, though.
    September 27 06:23 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly I thought your track was solid and I don't think I can give you any feedback that hasn't already been said, but I'll try. I thought that the drum work could be a bit more varied; for a prog song, it seemed a bit too monotonous. I also thought that the quiet section could have used some ambient textures to beefen up the atmosphere a bit or even add a field recording - would have made it a lot more peaceful and powerful. Other than that, i think everything's been said.
    September 27 03:35 PM
  • Relinquished if u put in the work and spread your material more maybe u can land on help
    September 27 01:47 PM
  • pedro70512 Cool, I'll give it a close listen this afternoon. And don't tell anyone, but I don't actually axe. The new Taravana stuff is all done on my keyboard :P
    September 27 12:18 PM
  • Shuyin yea, i can see how that works specially since you dig going for new experimental stuff. im still trying to find my own sound, im really happy when someone tells me that i have a distinct style. now i just gotta make it sound good while keeping the identity of each track unique. fun thing about music is that, its like space exploration! even when you think youve got it all down, theres always so much to learn and improve.. and knowing that theres so much to explore makes it bittersweet
    September 27 10:47 AM
  • DarkNoctus i liked the prominent bass too. work on the placement of cymbals because it's where a lot of impact comes from and you want them at the most impactful parts, like where the drums first come in. rethink the acoustics as i just don't think they worked. good work though! [:
    September 27 10:24 AM
  • DarkNoctus i will be as honest as possible but don't fret, i did like it overall! [: i liked the melodic leads guitar, shame they sounded too mechanical. placement of the cymbals felt a little off at times. i didn't feel like the acoustic section added anything at all and even though it was nicely composed it didn't match the rest of it. we suddenly went from what sounded like melodic death metal instrumentation to acoustics and it just felt very forced.
    September 27 10:23 AM
  • beefshoes Thanks man, and yeah, I made downloading an option on bandcamp!I think Chill of November was when I was finally getting the hang of mixing and cohesive songwriting, but I definitely agree with you on the drums, My favorite track on there is probably Bare en Aande , but I mixed the vocals incredibly low on it for some reason. It irks me so much because I slaved over the instrumentation. aha I'm glad you dug it though. Do you have a bandcamp account?
    September 27 09:32 AM
  • DecayingMajesty Good stuff man :)
    September 27 03:18 AM
  • bach nice job with the new track man. v cool stuff
    September 26 11:09 PM
  • Shuyin will do, thanks man. wont be posting anything for awhile since ive also burned out of fresh ideas and tbh i dont wanna be rehashing the same stuff
    September 26 10:27 PM
  • Wizard When I get a moment, I will definitely rip it to shreds ; )
    September 26 10:17 PM
  • BMDrummer aight shweet, look forward to hearing all 3!
    September 26 09:55 PM
  • BMDrummer no problem man, love helping others out with music they make. if this means another release soon, i'll be waiting happily :]
    September 26 09:48 PM
  • BMDrummer oh yeah man no problem, i just mean that they sound a little hollow and lack resonance. i'm not saying you need reverb or anything, it just sounds pretty treble-y, like it doesn't breathe.
    September 26 09:41 PM
  • BMDrummer mainly the drums, which sounded a little cold in the recording. other than that most of it seemed pretty good
    September 26 09:37 PM
  • BMDrummer great work as always cap, the transition was very nice and the guitar work was excellent for the whole song. very proggy and bm influenced of course, but i would favor better production since it seems like it kind of lacks a bit of that punch. all in all though, it's definitely a great song
    September 26 09:01 PM
  • beefshoes Cool, and thank you as well!Btw, if you listened to the upper most song, that was from 2010. I actually did two newer tracks that are grouped together in a different playlist. They are a lot more Ulver/Bathory influenced as opposed to the 2010 material.
    September 26 08:42 PM
  • Shuyin thanks man, its gonna be a tough moment but one must man it up. and thanks for checking the track, it means allot. i actually had the project of the final version with improved drums but it was saved on a hard drive that crashed. i only have this mp3 file now ahahah cheers!
    September 26 08:38 PM
  • Relinquished nothing blatantly egregious I could point out bro, I keep imagining how much awesome and better that could sound in a professional studio (obviously of course). great track overall, a little simple for my taste but I like how it's just progressive metal and the touches of bm influence are there.
    September 26 08:36 PM
  • beefshoes I enjoyed it, and I followed your account (Nordlig Komfort). The musicianship is really awesome, and I'm really digging the bass being as high as it is in the mix. If I could offer any constructive criticism, it'd be to raise the volume of the guitars in some areas. Towards the start of the track, it feels as if they're being drowned out by everything else that's going on. Maybe a bit more reverb on the snare drum to give it a bigger sound? Other than that, great effort :D
    September 26 08:12 PM
  • Funeralopolis I don't mind your harsh vocals they're much better than your cleans. I'm sure the album would be fine instrumental anyways it definitely has enough going on to merit it.
    September 26 08:12 PM
  • oltnabrick 5/5
    September 26 08:10 PM
  • Futures of course man big fan of your work!
    September 26 08:06 PM
  • Futures awesome man. in my opinion i think vocals would fit the track very well.
    September 26 08:04 PM
  • Funeralopolis I think it could possibly use some vocals but I'm gonna be perfectly honest with you here and say I honestly don't really like your vocals much at all for the most part but you definitely have quite a talent when it comes to instrumentation. I would almost recommend you teaming up with a vocalist, but even as an instrumental it would be fine.
    September 26 07:52 PM
  • Frippertronics nice track, really not digging the drums though (i'm guessing they're programmed?)
    September 26 07:51 PM
  • Futures really loved that man. the mid section and the acoustic part especially! is this going to be on a new release?
    September 26 07:49 PM
  • Shuyin im sorry, im doing therapy right now. same old ears s***.. dont know when ill be jamming. can i leave you one of mine? i know the drums are clumsy, long story, but i think youll dig the full thing
    September 26 07:48 PM
  • YakNips bruuhhhhh pretty sweet, i wanna hear it with real instruments tho!! or at least guitar. i rlly like it thooo, lots of cool stuff going on
    September 26 07:46 PM
  • Funeralopolis Killer track, are those 3 new songs you released going to be on an album? This is some of your best stuff yet. Its Height is still my favourite because I love the hell out of the bass on it, but I'd rank them: Its Height, Orgasm Forest, Flame. All rock doe.
    September 26 07:44 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Gotcha.
    September 26 07:36 PM
  • AaronIsCrunchy Haha, oh jeez that song title!The track sounds fantastic. Hope it doesn't sound like I'm detracting from the first half as I did like that, but the second half of the song (i.e. 3:14 on, you know the bit!) sounds absolutely fantastic. Got the amount of repeats played before a variation more or less spot on. How long did it take you to write?
    September 26 07:28 PM
  • Mongi123 Good track dude!
    September 26 07:28 PM
  • Judio! sweet will check soon
    September 26 07:22 PM

  • AnimalsAsSummit can you access bandcamp at all? their albums are on there for free dl i believe
    September 26 03:39 PM
  • evilford and CA to NY damn that's a hell of a trip, was it a good trip
    September 26 02:16 PM
  • evilford it's quiet but I like it. how about you how's CA? what part of CA do you live in?
    September 26 02:16 PM
  • evilford hahaha. I live in Iowa. you live in CA right?
    September 26 01:54 PM
  • evilford nah man none of my friends like metal. it sucks haha. it's alright tho I love my friends, just wish we shared some musical taste. but no generally we go hang out at bars or go to movies or just hang out at our house and drink and play board games and stuff lol. we're boring old people...that's cool you're getting together w/ your old bassist to jam, sounds like a good time :]
    September 26 01:37 PM
  • Jacquibim it's a show anyways i think i'm gonna log out for a few days and when i return i will have a masterpiece for you bye bye

    September 26 12:03 PM
  • theNateman No problem about the feedback! You're a talented musician, and I cant wait to see how you progress!
    September 25 07:30 PM
  • pedro70512 Clear is good with the style you've been using lately. Or styles. I'm playing around with mixing and production myself on AVC and it's coming out nicely so far. I've found that using a low-pass filter seems to eliminate unwanted clicks and hiss from the tracks, for instance. Yeah man your instrumental stuff is nice. I can't pin down your clean vocals...they're not bad but they didn't quite work for me at times on the last album. I need to spin Black Horse again, speaking of that album...
    September 25 10:22 AM
  • pedro70512 I liked the song a lot. You've got a distinct production style that emphasizes clear and bassy sounds in the center while everything else floats around it. It's cool. Will you add vox or is it just instrumental?
    September 25 09:58 AM
  • Jacquibim sweeee
    September 24 01:00 PM
  • Jacquibim I'll try to get it done in a week from now, sound good?
    September 24 12:41 PM
  • Jacquibim I WILL get it done man, and I promise it'll be 10 times better than the first pic. I've just had a difficult time finding motivation for anything for various reasons. Sorry to keep you waiting D:
    September 24 12:17 PM
  • Deathbeds Heliogabalus is so good. Thanks for telling me about it!
    September 23 07:30 PM
  • pedro70512 aight thanks. hope you have fun whew wherever you're headed
    September 20 06:25 AM
  • pedro70512 just posted the guitar tracks for another song. they need to be equalized and smoothed out tone-wise but it's a good framework. any thoughts?
    September 19 11:32 AM
  • Wolfhorde No need to apologize, I didn't even get out of Florida anyway. I'm into good beer or good booze in general, I like interesting pubs/pubs with good food/booze/interesting people. Obviously music is also a thing, meeting cool people, bonfires, barbecue. Stuff like that. I also like sports and fitness.
    September 17 06:21 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, I'd appreciate any recs on stuff in the U.S. or Cali to check out. I mean it'll probably be a while before I hit the U.S. up again since I gotta explore my European neighbors a bit more (and finances and planning, obviously) but I do plan to see some more at some point.
    September 17 05:51 PM
  • Wolfhorde Yeah, it's honestly not that easy to condense iall that stuff down to some shoutbox posts with somewhat narrow character limit. That's why when I write letters they're usually at least 3 pages. And I mean what I put in there was just some stuff I picked, there's more and probably even more I couldn't even think of right now. There's just way too much to life.
    September 17 05:45 PM
  • Wolfhorde as to its necessity bar the tax benefits. I don't necessarily see why a particular - somewhat religiously connotated - "symbol" or "ritual" is necessary in a relationship or what purpose it serves. Also, now you have why I prefer other platforms for communication. I can be very verbal.
    September 17 05:26 PM
  • Wolfhorde As for plans to marry and have kids holy ballsacks, no. I'm 21 and I've got other s*** on my "to do" list which includes finishing uni, getting to know a lot more different cultures/lots of travelling and trying various activities, getting a good career path going and meeting various kinds of people from said cultures. Every here and then also visiting friends (that are all over the globe). You mean civil marriage? Mhm, maybe at some point. Although I'm a bit skeptical regarding the institution
    September 17 05:24 PM
  • Wolfhorde another one of those just generally interesting and "good to know" things that make understanding certain processes and backgrounds a lot easier. Plus you have a certain congurence with stuff like history, SoSci and geography. Music and architecture because of aesthetics, different interpretations and concepts of those and how they developed.
    September 17 05:22 PM
  • Wolfhorde interpretations of certain occurences and intentions and things like that. Idk, it's just incredibly fascinating. Historical continuity is also a very interesting concept. Plus history makes understanding culture easier. Law because it's an interesting and relatively flexible concept that is also quite intricate and can be used and interpreted in myriads of ways. Plus I believe that everyone should have a certain minimum legal expertise or be able to have access to legal expertise. Geography,
    September 17 05:21 PM
  • Wolfhorde although philosophy kind of penetrates everything so it has a relation to almost every other academic subject (from law to polisci to math). Social Studies just seems like a good set of general knowledge, history - again is good for making sense of how things are now and how they were. Also quite good for learning, i.e. learn from the mistakes of others. Plus it's just RIDICULOUSLY intricate. There's always another layer and the more information we have the more layers we get you get different
    September 17 05:19 PM
  • Wolfhorde As I have mentioned somewhere else, I'm starting law in uni relatively soon which is also why I'm (finally) moving (out of this godforsaken rural crater of boredom). Areas of education that are interesting? Mhm, social studies, history, psychology, philosophy, law, geography, architecture and music. Jesus, why are they interesting? Psychology because I like to know how people work in general and because it makes making sense of people's actions easier. Philosophy partially for the same reason
    September 17 05:16 PM
  • Wolfhorde The "third stage" would be a lack of both sexual drive and romantic feelings. Asexuality can also be quite confusing for people who are asexual as not everyone can just as easily categorize themselves with clear lines. If I'd have to take it apart I'd say generally the biggest three components are drive, pleasure and feelings and how they interact or not.
    September 17 05:09 PM
  • Wolfhorde When I have romantic feelings for someone it doesn't come with the drive to have sexual intercourse with that person. Although asexuality doesn't necessarily imply that asexual people don't have sex or pleasure themselves, they just don't have the same drive as most other people and often they don't derive the same enjoyment from it. But as with sexuality in general, asexuality is also more of a spectrum allthough it has mostly been categorized in stages.
    September 17 05:05 PM
  • Wolfhorde .. I think you can understand how disrespectful that is. Yes, I understand that but you can't just disassemble sexual orientation into some kind of "component parts" - it's not a machine, it's something comprehensive. Although to be entirely honest, I get the question of "why are you asexual?" a lot more which is often a lot more infuriating given the context with which that kind of question is often posed.
    September 17 04:57 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh, I was almost certain you didn't have offensive intentions (although humans can be very erratic) - I was just pointing out that what you said may nevertheless have offensive implications. I'm not entirely certain what exactly you're referring to with the sentence regarding the offensive light and my response. I can admittedly get a bit offended at some people's sheer ignorance and their presumptuousness. I've had people attempt to tell me what sexuality I am in the past and all that stuff and
    September 17 04:54 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh and your question seems kind of inaccurate. I'm bisexual, not gay. So you'd have to ask why I think I'm attracted to both genders.
    September 17 04:15 PM
  • Wolfhorde Although I have admittedly not been emotionally connected to my family by much since I was 13/14 so eh.
    September 17 04:12 PM
  • Wolfhorde Some of the most plausible hypotheses are evolutionary in which the idea is something along the lines of these things developed out of a specific context in which that was favorable to heterosexuality. As for me personally, my biological parents may have been divorced for a long time but I doubt it has anything to do with that. And while my stepfather had some violent tendencies, these feelings were present before he started acting on them.
    September 17 04:11 PM
  • Wolfhorde I'm sorry but what you just said had quite a few offensive implications. The notion that alternative sexualities have ANYTHING to do with psychological issues have been disproven various times (that kind of quasi-Freudian ideology is maybe something old conservative Germans buy into but come on) and any occurence of such in conjunction is pure coincidence. At this point we have absolutely no idea what "causes" some people to be bisexual, homosexual or asexual.
    September 17 04:08 PM
  • Wolfhorde Then, somehow contact just faded away and when I tried to contact her again via mail or skype or something I never really got any response.
    September 17 03:39 PM
  • Wolfhorde Not my kinda cup of tea. And as I said, I have ADD and it definitely shows up in my general attributes and behavior. I get bored easily, I need lots of versatile things to do, I have a ridiculous amount of energy and I have completely illogical mood swings that partially happen at random. Well, there were few factors. She was from Austria, so there was distance - she was also 17 at the time so she was really young and she just left her boyfriend as he was an abusive dickhead.
    September 17 03:38 PM
  • Wolfhorde Most people can't really guess that I'm not heterosexual since I don't really go out of my way to make it a statement or a defining part of my identity, I have always had these feelings - I was just pretty much in denial. As I said, this is a pretty traditional rural area. I didn't even know what homosexuality was until I befriended someone at the age of 15/16. Hey, that sounds like you're describing some of my former teachers, haha. Seriously though,
    September 17 03:33 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh, and the other thing about the whole family thing is that I lost contact with one of my former best friends right about the time she started a family. I've also seen how some of that stuff can turn out which is not at all pretty.
    September 17 03:13 PM
  • Wolfhorde I'll probably abuse the university library at some point just to scour for some history books when I've got time to kill. Yeah, I'm relatively neutral, too. I kinda do have an opinion on things but I don't affiliate myself with any political ideology as I have a very academic view of things (it depends on the context and the specifics) and I'd rather stay out of it than support something just for the hell of it.
    September 17 03:09 PM
  • Wolfhorde Not just about the financial aspects (although they're considerable, too) but the general impact it will have on your life. I mean hell, I'm starting to study law. I won't be done before 27. And I've got plans, there's s*** to see and somesuch. I guess being a bisexual asexual with ADD also kinda changes the game a bit. (the impact of ADD on some general attributes can be vastly underrated) That sounds pretty swell, I love history - particularly digging really deep into the specifics.
    September 17 03:08 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, I gotta be honest - I've seen some people in the age range I described having a family and I kinda find that to be a terrifying thought.
    September 17 02:51 PM
  • Wolfhorde I mean, of course it also depends on the area of the U.S. but in general people are more open to smalltalk with strangers and things of the like (unfortunately partially also to being much more superficial). Over here that kind of behavior is often viewed as "rude" or "creepy" because our notions of "being polite" or "respectful" implies keeping a certain distance until you get to know people better and since people in the service industry don't have to rely on tips the environment is different.
    September 17 02:50 PM
  • Wolfhorde Well, that's generally the case - that's why I usually use the word "tendency" because it implies that there is a general tendency but leaves room for a LOT of variation if you get down to it. Oh yeah, I'm very familiar with that - a lot of Americans have the same opinion of Germany and Scandinavian countries because we have very different ideas of "being polite" or "respectful".
    September 17 02:47 PM
  • Wolfhorde I mean the same goes for any other kind fo socio-political idea. What do you mean by "resourceful" with weed? I'm not entirely following what you meant when with your mum's quote and the people further up North. (also, isn't California traditionally very liberal/progressive?) You got upset at her opinion or people's behavior?
    September 17 02:30 PM
  • Wolfhorde Well, it depends on the definition of "conservative". I mean there's already a difference between our political conservative and your political conservative, then socially conservativism is an entirely different beast. A certain degree of conservatism certainly makes sense (conserving culture and traditions to the degree that they don't infringe upon anyone's rights or harm anyone, conserving certain principles/standards etc) - it always depends on the context.
    September 17 02:27 PM
  • Wolfhorde Admittedly, where I live you still have quite traditional societal tendencies (Palatinate was once a Bavarian province where rich aristocrats hung out in their spare time, Bavaria is also partially one of the most conservative places here) a so things that are out of the ordinary will at first be a bit of a "oh s***" moment.
    September 17 02:05 PM
  • Wolfhorde Yeah, Idk you just generally came off as a university students. Copious pot consumption, jamming on your guitar in your free time and somesuch and so on. Me neither, quite frankly I often find it insulting when people pull the "age" card because it's such an irrelevant attribute.
    September 17 02:04 PM
  • Wolfhorde Holy s***, I thought you were like 22-24 and didn't think you had a wife and kid.
    September 17 12:56 PM
  • Wolfhorde Idk what that has to do with anything unless that means you have a wife and kids.
    September 16 11:37 AM
  • Wolfhorde Since the former is out of the equation the closest latter option would be Skype. At least that's what I usually resort to.
    September 16 02:58 AM
  • ASnideReturns Well yeah, imagine how people felt when they figured out that the Earth revolved around the Sun instead of the other way around. "MOTHER OF ****, how did we not GET that."
    September 15 10:13 PM
  • ASnideReturns Didn't realize that so little was known about the mechanisms behind weather god damn.
    September 15 09:27 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, it's close to midnight (which may also have slightly altered my perception) so I'm hitting the hay soon but we may be able to get something going tomorrow or something.
    September 15 05:49 PM
  • Wolfhorde Sputnik shoutboxes may not necessarily be the best places for that to be entirely honest. I prefer long-winded conversations on other platforms. In an ideal world all of them would be face to face with good booze and backgroundmusic to boot.
    September 15 05:45 PM
  • Wolfhorde I have zero idea what you're getting at. Are you just making random conversation because you're bored or are you being facetious?
    September 15 05:07 PM
  • Wolfhorde Are you high again? Oh wait.. is this one of the few times you're actually NOT high?
    September 15 04:48 PM
  • ASnideReturns s***, how much rain do you think we're gonna get?
    September 15 02:09 PM
  • ASnideReturns 28 inches well damn. What's the chances of that happening do you think?
    September 15 01:23 PM
  • ASnideReturns It's certainly gonna be interesting seeing what happens to California, Oregon definitely doesn't have any water problems lol
    September 15 01:03 PM
  • ASnideReturns God damn you can get fined for that?
    September 15 12:54 PM
  • ASnideReturns Dude here we haven't even had water cutbacks yet, or at least we haven't felt it. I've been hearing about all of these other cities getting hit by the drought though like damn man.
    September 15 11:31 AM
  • ASnideReturns That's why I can't stand California, I don't like heat at all and it's always ****ing summer here. It rarely rains. I've traveled to states and been in the snow during winter and such, but I really want to experience fall on the east coast at least once for a couple days (THE TREE COLORS BRO). Where in Oregon was your friend?
    September 15 11:20 AM
  • ASnideReturns That's true man, when me and my fiance have kids in the future we're probably gonna make our way up to Oregon (we love the rain and the climate there)
    September 15 11:11 AM
  • ASnideReturns Why Idaho man?
    September 15 10:31 AM
  • ASnideReturns Will do man! I'm still in Southern California, although I'm going further south (not quite to San Diego but within a half an hour driving distance)
    September 15 12:51 AM
  • ASnideReturns I'm pretty good man. Just working on getting an apartment, job hunting, the usual. How's your music been going?
    September 15 12:40 AM
  • ASnideReturns Long time no talk bro!
    September 15 12:28 AM
  • Jacquibim Ah no worries man, I promise I'll get it done soon :3
    September 14 07:29 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Did you dig the review? Anything you think needs work? I always like a bit of constructive criticism and metal is more your bag than mine
    September 13 05:18 PM
  • Jacquibim Sorry I didn't get the art started in time, I'm still gonna draw what you asked and maybe you can use it for a later release if you like?
    September 13 11:10 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, thank YOU, my friend, for continuing to create awesome stuff and supporting my passion for reviewing music.
    September 13 09:04 AM
  • Greyvy slowly working my way up ;)
    September 13 08:52 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges It is done.
    September 12 10:15 PM
  • pedro70512 eh, I decided to combine them because the player doesn't go straight through. js.
    September 12 06:04 PM
  • pedro70512 new song up. I have it so they play into each other so just start from Howl. hope work's going well :P
    September 12 05:46 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Jamming the new Trvth EP as I type this. Expect a review up this weekend. Good work, mate.
    September 12 05:21 PM
  • pedro70512 and don't worry, that riff will be back. maybe twice just for you :P
    September 12 09:48 AM
  • pedro70512 yeah it's finished for all intents and purposes. my girlfriend was supposed to record female vox for it but she's not my girl anymore, so it's probably best to leave it instrumental. I like how it turned out, and I've got most of the other parts recorded now. I'm hoping Bergtatt and Agalloch fans really enjoy the overall feel of the album.
    September 12 09:48 AM
  • pedro70512
    September 12 01:31 AM
  • pedro70512 oh, so you did. never mind then, haha. I like how people are all excited for your album but nobody else has actually rated it
    September 11 06:34 PM
  • pedro70512 not a problem. I'm glad to give feedback where I can. might bump to a 4 once I digest it a little more -- the first half, in particular, is definitely grower material. I already appealed to you for a rating on Taravana, yeah? I seem to remember it not being up your alley.
    September 11 05:12 PM
  • pedro70512 uh, yeah I'ved a couple don't need to be bothered by an every time I remix something. thanks though, it's definitely an improvement. now there's space in the mix for vocals, too. nice article btw :P checking it out now.
    September 11 04:41 PM
  • Frippertronics np, still need to get to that link you sent me. i'll try and get back to you on that by tomorrow
    September 11 03:10 PM
  • pedro70512 oh god I haven't even bothered with the artwork, I think it's all just my artist picture. thanks for listening to it all though, haha. it's a total hodgepodge of ideas and song pieces. yeah I don't have the time to really button this thing up at the moment but I'm glad you like the demo stages. I'll give the rest of your new stuff a listen shortly
    September 11 12:44 PM
  • pedro70512 yeah that's the right one. I dunno man, the more I listen to it the more I realize how inept I am at mixing haha. it's one of seven continuous pieces.
    September 11 12:14 PM
  • JamieTwort lol, corny as corn on the cob. Btw bro, I listened to your previous album Approaching a while ago but I'm not sure I ever got back to you on it. I def liked it but I'd need to give it more listens before giving any more detailed feedback. I remember thinking the album got better as it went on.
    September 11 12:04 PM
  • JamieTwort Sweet, I will check soon and give you my (inner) thoughts.
    September 11 11:48 AM
  • pedro70512 awesome, I'll give it a look. god damn you record a lot of music.
    September 11 08:36 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Sweet will check...
    September 11 06:05 AM
  • Jacquibim Nice to see you dug krusseldorf
    September 11 03:20 AM
  • pedro70512 dude, the production values on this are legit. it sounds awesome and it's a great jam. how did you do the drums, programmed or electric kit? not really getting the BM vibe though, more like prog metal a la Echos of Eon...I'mma just go ahead and download this to listen to it while I work tomorrow. great work so far.
    September 11 01:49 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sweet man, if you ever upload it to bandcamp or whatever shoot me a link and I'll probably try and do it some justice
    September 10 04:40 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot fair enough, I actually like how restrained it was. any upcoming releases you're stoked for? I'm thinking of trying my hand at a BM review..
    September 10 04:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot You didn't like Cryobiosis that much?
    September 10 02:22 PM
  • pedro70512 that section is going to go into a piano/violin duet, actually. but that same riff is going to come back during the finale and that's when I'm going to vamp it for days under chanted vox (see comparable: Caladan Brood, end of "Book of the Fallen"). damn, I'm in Connecticut. I'll probably end up in California though because that's where the music careers are at.
    September 10 11:46 AM
  • pedro70512 thanks man. yeah I'm hoping to lay down the drums for that last riff and get some vox in today but my folks are on my ass about my senior thesis (and that has a deadline, unlike this). where do you live? I've probably asked you before. also, I remixed the drums a little for better panning.
    September 10 11:26 AM
  • pedro70512 almost got the drums finished. this what you had in mind?
    September 9 06:55 PM
  • pedro70512 that tiny drumset is my favorite thing in the history of ever
    September 9 11:39 AM
  • pedro70512 this is the same guy that did Black Horse Plague? haha. I like the sparse, crazy piano work and how you fit the disparate parts together. the high vox are totally Sigur Ros, which isn't my fancy but I really like the last two minutes or so. actually, that last jam totally sells it. I still can't help but think of Three Little Ships with that bouncing synth line, and therefore the Black Satans video XD
    September 9 11:24 AM
  • pedro70512 yeah man I'll queue it up. thanks, I'm spending a lot more time on the harmonies in this one since I'm recording it myself. you hit the nail on the head with the atmospheric BM drumming. I'm not going to to Paysage raw but Diadem of 12 Stars might be a good starting point.
    September 9 10:12 AM
  • pedro70512 Yeah I'm pretty decent at them I think. At least it sounds good in the car, haha. New link.
    September 9 08:40 AM
  • pedro70512 Yeah I'm pretty decent at them I think. At least it sounds good in the car.
    September 9 12:09 AM
  • pedro70512 little something I put together today. Adding drums and vocals tomorrow. Vox will be half clean, half At the Gates style.
    September 8 11:56 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dude, I'd love it if you'd shoutbox me when the new Trvth album goes on Bandcamp. Not that I wouldn't go out of the way to find it myself, but I'd just like a friendly reminder, ya know?
    September 6 07:24 PM
  • Jacquibim I really like it, don't hate me for this but I get a little bit of an Animal Collective vibe from it. Am I also right in thinking that track ties into something bigger?
    September 6 11:25 AM
  • ScuroFantasma I think you did a really good job of this one. I really like the atmosphere and the inclusion of the running water in the background. I'll definitely check the album out when you release it.
    September 6 01:10 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Did you really dislike Voyager that much?
    September 5 09:57 PM
  • Hawks Damn, I might just buy it off their Bandcamp.
    September 5 12:51 PM
  • Hawks Got a link for that new Spectral Lore album by any chance bro?
    September 5 12:32 PM
  • Jacquibim Oh sorry, I mean when I re-do the first picture seeing as I'M not happy with it lol
    September 5 11:28 AM
  • Jacquibim Nice, if you're happy with the first picture then I might try my hand at something a little darker
    September 5 01:01 AM
  • Jacquibim Sounds pretty cool. I've been experimenting with some textures and colour blending (still sorta unfamiliar with the new pencil set) and I reckon I could probably be ready to start drawing in a day or two. What sorta music have you been working on by the way?
    September 4 12:59 PM
  • FrozenVain Well there we go. I just based it on using Control F on your ratings, heh. That's cool. If you know any other bands that are similar to Perfume I would love to hear your recommendations.
    September 1 04:00 PM
  • FrozenVain I personally like them more than Kyary.
    September 1 12:25 PM
  • FrozenVain Perfume are dope as hell if you are craving some intense japanese s***.
    September 1 10:40 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man it seems like something up your alley... depressive black metal
    August 31 04:13 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man, you might dig this
    August 31 02:27 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Cool, for some reason the link didn't send in my last shout so here it is:
    August 30 08:06 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Hey Captain (: You expressed interest towards a track from The Mark of Man so I thought I'd just send you a link so you can check the album when you have time, hopefully you dig the rest of the tracks too.
    August 30 08:07 AM
  • Judio! No way dude that sounds ****ing awesome, can't wait to hear it! Making narrative storylines with music is difficult with so much fun. The upcoming SSM album has a complete narrative plot and I'm really proud of how it turned out.
    August 28 03:45 PM
  • Jacquibim Cheers dude, you can just credit as Jacquibim if you like. But yeah, I'm gonna try and get this Opeth review done first, then I'll start on the drawing.
    August 28 01:52 PM
  • DecayingMajesty thanks :)
    August 28 01:47 PM
  • DecayingMajesty Schooling purposes lol :)
    August 28 01:34 PM
  • Voivod "You weren't joking about the genre jumping. However, it felt seemless and flowed well. Very theatrical, in a sense" 100% agreed!!! If you like that one song, you will love the whole album. These put to shame almost every tech metal band I know.
    August 28 01:27 PM
  • Judio! Well I don't want to spoil it or anything but one of those was definitely in the ballpark! Don't worry though, the next album in the series will tell you all you need you know.
    August 28 01:24 PM
  • DecayingMajesty fine thanks man, how are u? Im getting some important science test results next week so im a bit anxious about that, but apart from that im good, wbu?
    August 28 01:08 PM
  • DecayingMajesty unbanned, how are u?
    August 28 12:26 PM
  • Voivod No worries man, the name of the band is Troldhaugen. I have added them in here, and I have posted a news item for the album stream I posted earlier. Let me know what you think of the album.
    August 28 10:38 AM
  • Voivod I think you will like this, 2014 AOTY -
    August 28 03:36 AM
  • Jacquibim I haven't started on it yet, I've just been fairly busy and other things have sapped my motivation. I promise to get around to it soon.
    August 28 03:29 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit badass my man! im pleased you found it of intrigue. thanks for those recs btw, going to check them out starting one by one tommorow. with school starting this week, im needin' that classical tinged prog asap
    August 27 11:47 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit its cool, just get to it when ya can. and fck yes man, that album is 1 of the most refined and delectable prog records ive heard from any era. i need more progressive rock italiano!!! only got pfm and jacula at this point, but that shiz be so gooooooood
    August 26 02:52 PM
  • manosg hey man, will definitely do. I think I saw it on a list of yours the other day. Album seems a bit eccentric which is always good.
    August 26 12:54 PM
  • Deviatnt haaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrddd, the voice of children's ghost-like that she made, gives me shivers everytime
    August 24 12:23 PM
  • Pestiferous waddup dude, long time no see
    August 23 07:50 PM
  • OmairSh Correct PC rating
    August 22 01:04 AM
  • Jacquibim No worries, I have a fairly good idea of what I want to do composition-wise, and with the new pencils it should look significantly better than the first pic. Also after fiasco on the Kiss thread I'm probably going to avoid discussing my state of mind on here as some people are just complete imbeciles, but thanks for your concern :)
    August 20 08:58 AM
  • Previewofthescreamin Dude I am you! We are from the same source,, Imagine a water!!! we're teardrops but we are The water as a wholeness. can't wait man! provide the link when it's done
