Hi guys smile.gif
Finally got some good quality guitar-time to myself and finished off a new song!

I uploaded a very early version of this one not too long ago, incase it sounded familiar to some of you smile.gif
But as usual, no vocals yet.. and this song is written with vocals in mind.
I'm still not sure if i'm going to add some synths, but I think it works as it is now.

Any comments or further ideas are more than welcome smile.gif

Attached File  I_Forgive.mp3 ( 8.39MB ) Number of downloads: 380


--------------------
Guitars: Schecter Stiletto Classic, Jackson SLSMG, Ibanez RG-380 Japan, Gibson Les Paul Studio

Amp: Marshall JMP-1 -> Rocktron Velocity 100 -> Marshall JCM-900 Lead 4x12

FX and stomps: T.C Electronics G-Sharp, Korg SDD-1200, Emma Transmorgrifier, BYOC Tribooster, GGG Green Ringer, Dinosaur Overdrive, Voodoo Lab SuperFuzz, Sovtek Bassballs, Line6 Tap Tremolo, EHX Screaming Bird.

Man, as usual this song is awesome. I love the little bit of subtle delay you have on the rhythm track. The lead guitar is awesome around 2:09, I love the atmosphere you get out of it, quite an evil riff if I do say so myself. love the way the double bass picks up around 3:15 or so, the solo at 4:10 is great. Some just awesome licks in there, as the same with the solo right after it. and from 5:30 the way the song concludes just feels great. Whole song has avery natural feel to it. Excellent job man. When you release an album, im first in line for it.

If you dont mind me asking, What do you record guitars with on this song?

I will listen again when I get home. Right now I am at my bro's. These speakers are built into the LCD and sound like crap. But that said this sounds just amazing to me so far.

I can give some better comments later if you feel they will be useful.

Great job bro!

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks a lot for the good review and the nice words! biggrin.gif

The guitars are recorded the same as always;
Jackson SLSMG into JMP-1 preamp, and then dry emulated outputs from the preamp into soundcard. All effects like reverb and delay are plugins in Cubase.
But the sound might be a bit different because this time i ran the whole project through Ozone 3 and used it as a mastering tool.

Thanks! biggrin.gif I was thinking something along the lines of Devin Townsend-style vocals.
But thats very hard to do unless you have Devin himself nearby sad.gif

Really nice riffing Trond. Extremly head banging friendly rythm and that's always something good in a tune like this one.

Ok, that was awesome, I see that you invested lot of energy as well as passion.
Just not to think that I praise you, here is what I don't like.
Song has to many parts, you can create 3 songs form this one:)
The more melodies and parts you have, the less focus. I know that lot of those progressive metal/rock music is very complex, and have many parts, but I would take 2-3 riffs(all are good) and develop them.
Nice work!

Yea, i always double every track, including the solo trakcs.
For the rhythm tracks i usually pan each 41% left and right.
Not sure how i ended up on exactly 41%, but it works for me smile.gif

I probably tend to overdo it with adding different sections in my songs. I guess it's a way of compensating for the lack of lyrics and also to keep it interesting to myself.
