The "bird

Quite hypnotic...
...although I am listening to this after having drunk a large glass of wine...! Love the middle eastern riffs (and the pic) melding with the grunge guitar.

shifting sands
Nice bit of eastern groove going on.
Love the bass sound.
Sounded like a dark remix of Pandemonium by Killing Joke.
I kept trying to fit the 'I can see tomorrow' vocal line in parts of this.
I would maybe have double tracked the solo guitar and put a bit of delay on it to give it a slightly more eastern feel but apart from great cool stuff for the new year
cheers

I wondered
about double tracking the solo, but it has some echo on it already. Might try removing the echo and doubling it. Cheers.

Great blend
Very cool the way you put those parts together, very complementary, and everything sounds large but gets it's own space.

Hypnotic!

Whoa,
I like this Pete. Very cool mix of cultures and sounds The middle eastern melody lines are outstanding my friend. Love the sound you're getting on that Ibanez Bass. What amp are you using to get that kind of growly low pitched sound, it is just too cool.

Great track Pete. I'm putting on the iPad and into rotation as we speak.

Love it my friend,

Ed

the bass
is recorded using a Line6 emulated amplifier. I messed with the eq to get that growl - it took ages!!

love the guitar riff Pete, great tone and the middle eastern groove is fantastic, a sound I really like. Both genres merge together really well, great stuff!
Thanks for the download.

Hey cool!
Bone crunching riffage with a world-music flavor. Mikey likey a lot! Reminds me a tad of 90's Boiled-In-Lead!

Nice job man!

Be well friend!

Google them!
Boiled In Lead is a Minnesota-based World Music/Punk band that has been around in several incarnations since the late 80's. Your sound here put me in mind of how they sounded during the 90's when their front man was Adam Stemple of "Laughing Cats" fame. (If you ever decide to check them out I recommend you begin with the "Gypsy" CD. Their latest CD: "Silver Carp" is a return to the pre-Stemple sound is is quite good too.)

Mr Bacon Jr
I'm a real sucker for middle eastern riffage. It lends itself well to heavy guitar riffing.

Nicely done!

This kicks butt!

Love the mix
And the mix of genres and timbres. The touch of the voice is awesome. The riffin guitar is fookin unstoppable. Bass sounds deep. Drums seem to be looping, so it must be a PITA to try alterations in that area.
Great stuff.

play with the rhythms as they are midi, not looped, but I'm lazy!!!

Yowza
Whop me upside the head with that guitar riff. I also like the Middle Eastern vibe. I've always wanted to try that. As Eddie says, it lends itself well to heavy riffage. My kinda stuff. Bass growls away happily. Maybe spread out the heavy guitar line? Anyway, much enjoyed.

oh yeahhhhhh
i like kingbee's idea of a mantra being sung by a subtle chorus in the right spots. i imagine you had a great time making this - it IS hypnotic. a good groove goes a long way, and this is a good groove made from an excellent assortment of voices and vibes. i enjoyed this sexy number - anne
