Description
Keeping with tradition........ It is merely a track I've been working on with very limited computer resources! Just guitars and drums for now (EzDrummer) albeit, the intro was done in Reason using my MK-249C. I have a dual 1.2 GHz CPU due on the 27th, needless to say, I'm pretty stoked!!! I can't wait to dive back in and finish a menagerie of solid beds I have made in the past 8 months! This is only a concept, so leave me some skin (};-P)

Hey!
A new track from you! I like the riffs a lot. This should be a killer tune when you get this finished up. (not that it's not good as is, :P)
Axgrinder said 4262 days ago (December 24th, 2007)
Hey.... Big (M)
Thanks for the kind words brother. I apologize for being so out of it lately! I've got a new processor coming Thursday! Yeehaw.... can't wait. I'll be by for a listen.

So much
power going on here... just so full of energy. The guitar sounds you've got are great (has a sort of violin sound in parts just coming up for the end). I wondered where you'd got to lately and now I know, can't wait for your 'golden tones' to be added and it'll sound terrific. If the others are as good as this you have quite a repertoire, regards M and a very Merry Christmas to you.

Maurice my friend!
Thank you so very much. Your opinion means a great deal to me! Yes.... I think I've got another diamond in the rough here. I'm getting a dual 1.2 GHz CPU for my weathered old G4 on the 27th, so the grinder will indeed be back with a fervor! Happy Holidays to you brother.

Good build-up
I really like the intro that you stuck on this track. The guitar work is good and thick sounding, but without that intro it would have been yet another metal song.

Kudos for some quite welcome creativity in the screaming guitars genre.

Thanks Vic!
Yeah, I was just messing around in Reason with my keyboard, found some cool voices and just started playing with the old jog wheel. The rest just sort of fell into place. Reason is an awesome program for spawning new ideas! this is the second song I've built just by messing around and exploring different concepts. Music is the sh*t man! Merry Christmas my friend.

Great introduction
and a nice surprise when the drums and guitar kick in. The guitar is great - dirty but melodic, a killer combination. I love the riffing on the break - kind of makes me think of a combination of Brian May and Mick Ronson circa Man Who Sold The World. Nice one. I can't wait to hear how this one develops. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and peaceful, creative New Year. Peace.

Sorry for the late reply bro!
Thanks Vic, Unfortunately I didn't make a clone of my hard drive on my back up and lost the Logic file and all I have is the mp3/mp4 files! @!#$%&* I don't know if I can redo that intro? Or build the same drum track? I just upgraded to a 1.2 GHz CPU and installed Leopard! Needless to say, I have lots of work to do. Thanks for the comment my friend. You'll be seeing a clot more of me now! (Didn't mean to scare you!)

Metal!
Rock on Ax!

Man, this is really heavy and cool. I agree with everyone here that the intro was really a great idea. I can see the live show with the fog billowing over our heads and the lasers and the you with giant lumberjack boots (Think Elton John in Tommy) shredding the skin off our faces.

Brilliant new stuff man. Glad to get to know you this year and look forward to what you dole out with the new gear.

I hope 2008 is a very Happy New Year for you.

Your pal,

Bob

Thanks 5 extra, brother!
It mean.... Thank you 5 times, 6 in layman terms! I don't know about "Brilliant" I wouldn't say that I am "B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T!!! or anything like that (};-P) But I concur that it is a wee different than the mainstream! I just hear this s*it in my head and attempt to lay it down to sound half good enough for people to have the ability to stand to listen to it! Lol. Or something like that!

michael2 said 4260 days ago (December 26th, 2007)
cool
that intro is a perfect way to kick things off and love all of the harmony riff-age. that's great your getting a new set-up, should make things much more pleasurable for you. is this going to be an instrumental piece, or will you lay vox on it? correct me if i'm wrong, but didn't you post something else with you singing (and it was good)?

Axgrinder said 4260 days ago (December 26th, 2007)
OK, Michael2
I get it! Yes..... I plan to toss some VOX salad over this without crouton torpedos ..... Those are very bad indeed! Thank you for your words of kindness. This should be an exciting year!

Hey, thanks Craft!
I guess if you made a comparison to Korn, It can't be all that bad (};-P) I appreciate you stopping buy and I hope you had a Merry Christmas! Now we have 2008 staring us smack in the face! Have a good one of those too bro,

It was nice to climb back up into......
the saddle brother! I have a lot more computer now, so I should be able to actually utilize the power of logic instead of crashing all the time. I don't know how I pulled that last one off? Anyhow, thanks for your comment and have a Happy New Year.

Thanks Bob!
I'm glad you like what I've got going on here. of course the more I listen to it, the more crappy it sounds (};-P) The next installment shall hopefully prove to be much more precise! I have over twice the power at my command now (Major CPU/RAM upgrade) And I'm running leopard and just installed Logic 8...... Pretty awesome, but a bit CPU hungry! I appreciate your stopping by for a listen and your kind words.

When this is all wrapped up it'll be the final track on your CD: that big, driving number that leaves 'em wanting more.......

Great beginning on this, and your interweaved, harmony guitar lines are killer.

Well done, and I'm very glad I stopped by.

Right on SJ!
I appreciate your comments! I think this may be worth some research and development! Thanks for stoppin in for a listen brother.

Cool!!
Sorry for the late comment, but I kinda been under the weather for a while.

This is sweet brother. I love the classical influenced change in the end. It reminds me of Yngwie. I can't wait to here what you do next. Awesome my brother. Keep up the good work.


Axgrinder said 4244 days ago (January 11th, 2008)
Well then......
if you like it..... it can't be all that bad! (};-P) Just a basement to build on, although I have to completely rebuild it from scratch cause I lost the files during my upgrade. I should have done a "clone backup" What a B-I-O-T-C-H man! Oh well, perhaps the next version will actually be good? Anyway, thanks for stoppin and for the uplifting praise you left.

Awesome ax!
This song feels metallic. No, I mean literally. . .lol-- I don't mean "metal" in the rock sense--that opening sounds like bending, grinding, STEEL. Totally kickass!

Guitar work is amazing.
Axgrinder said 4234 days ago (January 22nd, 2008)
Hey Admiral,
flattery will get you everywhere! (};-P) don't go and take that the wrong way now, lol! you are much to kind my friend, although I concur with your metallic synopsis. Anyhow, thank you very much and for stopping in for an ear full! I'm heading over to your place to return the favor here shortly.
