Germany is the land of metal - with bands like Blind Guardian, Rammstein etc, there's no doubt about it!

Here is a somewhat feeble attempt of mine to write a song in German - I hope all German speaking gmc'ers will listen to this one with their sense of humour turned ON! ph34r.gif In gray you will find my wishful English translation wink.gif

Mittwoch at iTunes

Montag, bin Ich so müde (Monday, I am so tired)
Montag, töte Ich ein Fliege (Monday, I killed a fly)

Dienstag, habe Ich das Haus gereinigt (Tuesday, I cleaned the house)
Dienstag...Ich gehe weiter (Tuesday...I move on)

Donnerstag, hörst du nicht das Donner? (Thursday, can't you hear the thunder?)
Donnerstag, Ich bin das Donner! (Thursday, I am the thunder!)

Freitag, ist nur einem Tag...nur einem Tag bleiben...einem Tag...
(Friday, is just a day...only one day left...one day)

Mittwoch! Habe Ich vergesst (Wednesday! I forgot about it)
Mittwoch! Mein Deutsch ist schlecht (Wednesday! My German is bad)
Mittwoch! Ist nicht die beste (Wednesday! Is not the best)
Sch****...habe Ich vergessen (S*** I forgot about it)

wow thanks!! laugh.gif I must say Rammstein have really been my metal heroes the last year. I guess I should look out so I don't get too much influenced by them! Who knows I might end up learning German grammar...! tongue.gif (even though it's going to take a while of course)
chast
That's a lot of fun Kris biggrin.gif
utak3r
Yeah, it really has this "tanz metal" touch wink.gif

My thought:
While at PMed riffs it sounds really cool, those not muted riffs could have somewhat deeper sound, heavier, now it's... hm, can't find a proper english word.... too screamy?

Other than that I like this one smile.gif
edguy
Haha Kris ich kann gar nicht aufhören zu lachen biggrin.gif
Was für ein geiler Song und dein Deutsch ist gar nicht so schlecht cool.gif

English Version: Kris I can't stop laughing. What a great song and your german is not bad at all.

You should form a German Metal Band.

ah you mean the chorus riff? Yes you are right I could try adding some muting there for a more staccato feel. Maybe something to think about for the live version! smile.gif Thanks for the comment!

Haha, great Kris I like your pronunciation! I love the heavy riffing (and the super-solo) cool.gif

hehe thanks! laugh.gif I didn't verify this text with any German speaking person - so I am pretty sure it's full things German school teachers would hate, though! laugh.gif
edguy
Ok if you want to know it in detail I can show you the mistakes biggrin.gif
But not because I want to critise you it's only for your learning process laugh.gif

One mistake is here:

Donnerstag, hörst du nicht das Donner? You must say: "den Donner" not "das Donner"
Donnerstag, Ich bin das Donner! And here you have to say : "der Donner" I know it#s complicated.

There are a few more mistakes but I really have to say that its very good for the beginning.

Practice one more year and you become a famous German Metal guitarist who sing in german. laugh.gif





Tolek
Awesome song and idea! laugh.gif There are a lot of grammar mistakes, but who cares? biggrin.gif You´re not getting rated by your language knowledge but by your creativity. The last is extremely big. smile.gif If you do a song in Japanese, I´m gonna eat a broom. laugh.gif

Oh so "Donner" was a correct word at least - I am happy about that!! laugh.gif laugh.gif
edguy
I have good idea. Maybe you can record the introduction video in all languages from our Members here.
A lot of work to do but I think it could be very funny. smile.gif

Yes - and the intro page would sense the IP addresses (location) and show intro video in right language accordingly.. cool idea! smile.gif

Polish is very difficult to speak, especially that rolled "r". tongue.gif I´m a native polish speaker, but I´m far away from speaking it 100% correctly... smile.gif

hehe well we don't have to do it for all languages right away..! But yes you are right, we certainly have a whole bunch of other things to accomplish at GMC prior to this!

I know biggrin.gif
I have many English native speakers firends an I know that for them Polish is just a bunch of letters wink.gif "r" is only one of the problems... big groups of consonants are, too wink.gif
"chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie, w Szczebrzeszynie" wink.gif

laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif "Stól z powylamywanymi nogami" laugh.gif I think this is wrong, isn´t it? biggrin.gif Or even "Szczecin" is a challenge for a lot of people. biggrin.gif
Trond Vold
What a kickass song! biggrin.gif
The sound and production is improving for each song smile.gif
Ivan Milenkovic
Sounds like Rammstein! Awesome! \m/ smile.gif
Pedja Simovic
Sounds great Kris !

Wonder whats next language you will use for your song ? biggrin.gif
Kristofer Dahl
Thanks a lot guys - it's great to get your feedback on this! biggrin.gif

@ Trond - thanks, yes I try to learn a little more about the production part with every song! I am very happy you notice smile.gif

@ Pedja - there is a risk I might switch back to English... biggrin.gif but you never know!!

Awesome tune Kris, was that standard tuning? I would love to hear it dropped! smile.gif


Edit: Now that I listen again..Sounds like it is dropped.. cool.gif
Disturbed21

ohmy.gif Man.. this is awesome! Your voice here is amazing and the riffing is killer. The sound is also very good. I'll download the wav file to try if I can do a better mastering.. however the final mix that you uploaded sounds very loud and powerfull.

Wow Gabriel awesome to hear this from you!! Thanks! biggrin.gif It would be absolute killer to hear your take on the master! ( I don't have any top-of-the-line maximiser + I couldn't really make use of a multiband compressor on this master... Still I feel that in the right hands, these two things might make the master better)

Hahahah this is awesome Kris biggrin.gif The high pitched screams... how do you do that?!


Thanks! biggrin.gif

I think that I have learned to do these screams by singing in falsetto (normal soft falsetto) - I always used to do that when there was a song on the radio with a female singer, as that was the only way to nail the high notes.

Much later when I realised that I wanted to try to develop a vocal technique for rock/metal - I used the same falsetto "technique" with lots of guts/stomach/diaphragm (basically scream like you are dying but without hurting your throat).
