Description
This song asks far more questions than it answers:
Why does fasteddie advocate crime?
Does he know how to write a friendly song?
Does he know how to play any other instrument except screaming guitar and bass?
Why does one's stomach hurt so bad after listening to his music?

In order to get such a wonderfully caustic sound I put together two guitar parts. One uses a MESA Boogie Express 5/50W amp set on a blistering 5 watts. The other part I'm using a Peavey VYPYR 120 6L6 tube amp set on the JSX mode. The bass is just pumping through the stupid Line 6 amp in my software.

I'm just starting to play the drums (if I knew the drums were this much fun I would have learned how to play them a long time ago). Since I suck at drums right now I have to program them into the song ulnless I can talk a drummer into helping me out.

Anyway, I'm a heavy metal punk rocker at heart so here's really the only thing that I do sub-par to semi-well.

Lyrics
Thrill Ride

Unlocking the door with the jimmy so slight
Being quite as a mouse in the dark of the night
Crossing the wires the engine starts with a whine
Put the car into gear and now it’s the time

(chorus)
Grand theft auto for the thrill of the ride
Stealing a car and speeding into the night
Destruction of property no care for the rules
It’s an adventure enjoyed solely by fools

The adrenaline surge makes it so hot
Getting into a pursuit with an angry cop
Jumping the auto ten feet in the air
Clearing the median with plenty to spare

Going the wrong way down a one way street
The reckless abandon makes this so sweet
Drive this car like there isn’t a care
Anyone on the sidewalk just better beware

Pressing on the gas taking it to the max
Melting my face likes it’s made out of wax
Passing cars on the freeway like they’re standing still
Only doing this because of the thrill

(chorus)

Why would I do such a deed
Don’t do it I hear you plead
I’m a reckless fool
I’m a felon and a tool
I have total disregard for life
This is my thrill ride

Very cool Michael! Great guitars, driving beat. You have a knack for picking cinematic topics, then really developing them well. Who knows, maybe this could be the theme song for the next GTA edition.

Thanks dave-b
for the kind words. The cinematic topics come from a pretty warped and deranged origin.

Yep that's a thrill!
Nicely done!

Great sound on those guitars and the bass (despite the Line 6)

Nice breakdown in the middle.

Cheers

for the listen and to take time to comment. If you made it past the breakdown in the middle then you made it a minute longer than most probably. Seriously thanks for the listen and your song Big Dog totally rocks!

Big band sound
You seem to have the full rack of instruments there at your disposal Michael and you make a very effective sound with them... the vocals are pure 'you'. Just sounds like there are loads of people on stage with you waving guitars about with a sweaty drummer in the back juggling drum sticks. You do it good every time, regards M

Pretty cool guitar and bass work.

The drums sounds like you're playing fairly soft and just turning up the volume in the mix. I think this sort of music needs you to really pound those drums. No whimpy hits on that hi-hat: full force on the cymbals and toms.

Brutal
The tones you chose for the axes are perfectly counter balanced...1:25 love the tempo change. Can't think too hard about this one. Just have to go with it. Not so sub-par and more than semi-well.

Thanks
for the listen and for the comments. After listening to the song again... I realized that I forgot to program cymbals into the last section of the song. Anyway, thanks for the kind words. I've been going through some of your older stuff and there is a lot of really great songs there.

Kick ass
Oh man, all axes hitting in unison: what a head banging powerful thing.
I like the small twist at the end of the second bar of the riff.
Now, what's this at 3:40? Niiiice touch here!
I learned a couple of things about drum programming by programming drum tabs I found on the net. Perhaps you already saw this post : http://www.macjams.com/forum/viewtopic.php?forum=1;showtopic=24279;onlytopic=;show=10;page=1;page=1

fasteddie said 2672 days ago (February 3rd, 2010)
That thing
at 3:40 was a sample of a car starting and pealing out. It wasn't that great of a sample but it's the only one I could find.

Thanks for the link to the drum programming thread.

Erased was awesome BTW!

Intense!
This is a nice gritty metal song, and I really don't have any complaints. The drums kind of drag behind the forward momentum of the guitar creating a nice rhythmic dissonance that some people might not like but I think gives it a nice stoner rock feel. Great guitar tone. Unfortunately the entire mix sounds slightly far away like you're listening from the next room. The vocal especially could be fuller. I don't know what vocal mic you are using, but a condenser could solve that problem. This song is structured excellently - it really goes places.

Thanks
Dharma_Loggo for dropping by and having a listen. I do have a pretty good condenser mic, I think it's just because I'm still trying to figure out how to get things mixed properly. The more I work at it the better it goes. I liked your song Evolution Symphony... that was way cool.

Going the wrong way down Mesa Boogie Avenue
Speaking as 33% of His Boy Sherman, I must compliment you on that authentic metal sound of your guitars. Love it. A former bandmate of mine had that Mesa Boogie sound and I could never get enough of it.

This site has a metal void that you should consider filling. I happen to like sub par metal tunes like this one.


Thanks for the download (by the way, I was the 18th in case you wonder if anyone liked it or not.....)
