Agrippa’s Laboratory - Ashes



 Genre: Metal

Get Flash to see this player.

Agrippa’s Laboratory showcases some of Agrippa’s various music projects, which fall outside the Agrippa93 realm. Here he explores music creations of experimental, industrial, progressive metal, alternative, and any other genre that comes about along with featuring different artist collaborations from various studio sessions.

Agrippa - drum programming, synths, sequence programming.
Scott Williams - lead guitars, rhythm guitars and bass.

Ashes blends Williams‘ progressive metal guitar wizardry with Agrippa’s industrial sound of electronic beats, and neurotic synths and sequences. The foundation of this piece was written and arranged in 2005, but shelfed for 4 years due to the lack of any creative development to the song. Agrippa presented the song arrangement as a challenge to Williams to step outside his genre comfort zone. Williams met the challenge resulting in some brilliantly executed guitar work that compliments the synthetic industrial sounds. Although there are no lyrics to this song, it’s intent was to musically express nicotine addiction and withdrawal.

Technical Information:
There were a total of 5 guitar tracks recorded; 4 leads and one rhythm, which was doubled to produce a fuller sound. All guitar and bass tracks were recorded by Williams at his home workstation and brought to Sickle-Pation Studio to be imported into Logic and mixed with the other prerecorded tracks. All drum sounds are triggered through a drum sequencer called Ultrabeat, of which has never been used in an Agrippa song before now.

First time I've actually heard lead guitar that sound as good and better than loops. I mean that in a very complimentary way.

Check out my latest song called Decent Girl

Great guitar/electro interplay... the elements bounce off each other in fascinating ways. Nice transitions as well. I discover something new every time I listen. It's a complex brain-twister that will reward the musically-minded.

entertaining instrumental
With some nicely correlated changes. Nice choice of effects for the guitar, and in the hands of a master. I was always a fan of a band called "MindBomb" that mixed dance/industrial sounds with rock guitar sounds. This is similar in a lot of ways. Check out Mindbomb if you haven't yet (that goes for YOU if you are reading this!). Thanks for this song Agrippa.
