Joy Majestic – ...The solo reminds me of Uli Jon Roth's work – and that is very cool!
Thanks! I spent all week listening to Scorpions because of this and take it as a huge compliment!

Re: Pictures from when (I Was A Child Model reviews)

Nice! You really nailed that! I googled the lines in case it was part of an old stand up routine.

I meant to post/finish these earlier in the week. Apologies to any band after mellfire, you all got a shorter/rushed review this morning. Congrats Ken and Lunkhead! Excellent job!

JP - I keep picturing a guy in a wizard robe singing this on stage and getting like really into it and it just seems like it would be a really entertaining spectacle to behold. Man I miss live shows.

Re: Google it (I Was A Child Model prefight)

In with a tribute to Lilith, the big boss for the new Diablo 4 game. The cinematic trailer looks sick. Borrowed a lot of motifs for this one.

Re: Google it (I Was A Child Model prefight)

Ok, I've got riffs. I've got lyrics. Time to mush them together. I've got a lot of reverb and delay, but I don't think I'll be able to stretch the definition enough to call this Shoegaze.

Re: From Grey to Gandalf (The White Morph reviews)

Man, I wish every week could be metal week. This was so much fun! I think to be fair, we should have a "showtunes/musical number" optional challenge to make all us metal folks equally uncomfortable. Vom Vorton Ayyy, nice fuzz. I dig the groovy riff. A few forgivable sections where things seem to odd...

Re: From Grey to Gandalf (The White Morph reviews)

JP Nickolas : Nice opening! The guitars aren't all perfectly in tune but it's not too bad. The weakest part of this is the harmonizing vocals which have trouble staying on pitch and getting a solid attack on the notes (the two are often very related). Bass track feels slightly underpowered to me, a...

Re: White Morph

Re: Rare and unusual (The White Morph prefight)

Ok, in. I even have a breakdown, which is a first for me. Programming drums by hand is no fun, but it's probably good for me to rely on preset patterns less.

Re: Rare and unusual (The White Morph prefight)

Whelp, these takes are still sludge, and not in the fun metal way. I'll probs submit this late tomorrow. I broke out the 7 string for this one, so I'm stoked.

Re: Rare and unusual (The White Morph prefight)

Yeah, I'll be interested to see everyone's take on the title this week. Googling this phrase just comes up with a random hostel in New Zealand, which I guess could be the subject of a fun ballad.

Yesssss to this optional challenge! I look forward to hearing everyone's take on metal! Unfortunately the title doesn't speak to me. We'll see if I can come up with something lyrically this week.

Re: Better Days

Re: I'm sorry but (I Can’t Turn It Off prefight)

Limited recording time this week, but I was able to get creative with the takes I had and put something together. In with something less metal this week.

Steamboat willie whistle: Louder and more distinct, but with a much smaller range. Relax the back half of your tongue, and tense the next quarter to form a U that bridges your front 2 molars. The tip of your tongue shouldn't be touching anything at this point - aim it upwards. Open your lips as if y...
