Description
I got the new DoD Metal Drums (Manic Metal) disk a few days ago and wanted to throw something together to see how they sound. Nothing special about this track- I threw this together yesterday using some midi bass loops, then playing guitar to them.

Never mind my crappy playing, but the drums are great! I thought I'd share this track for anyone looking for some double bass drums and are curious about the new DoD release.

Crappy playing? Sounds like some killer metal to me. There's a bit of a Tool vibe in the palm muted sections!

Well,
I should be farther along regarding lessons and skill but more important things keep coming up. I'm glad you caught the Tool vibe. It had me thinking the same thing, only not as good as them, haha! Thanks for the comment!

I really
dig the double bass. That definitely adds some real power.

Cool axe work Mike!
As always this has a stellar mix.

The drums
are going to be a lot of fun to work with when I have the time. I literally threw this together in a couple of hours. (I really want to explore more guitar riffs for this when I have time)

Thanks for the comment Mike!

Cool heavy riffing goes beautifully with the drums. I am a DoD fan too.

Well....
When I literally throw something together like this, I don't have a lot of confidence in my playing skills (we won't even discuss song structure, lol!). There's more I'd like to do to this if time allows and try doing more complex guitar stuff. The drums and bass tracks were so easy to throw together it was almost ridiculous :)

Thanks for the comment Jack!

Is this crappy ?????
I think this should be an open collab Mike, unless you sing too. This is a killer metal tune.

Well, I know better than to attempt singing, haha! Pretty much everything I post is open for collab, I just never put the tunes in that category.

Thanks for the supportive comment- much appreciated!

Crushing. Drums and guitar sound super. You should lay in some scorching solos Mike. Let her rip.

mike_d said 2974 days ago (March 3rd, 2011)
I think...
I'd better leave the solos to those that can do, haha! I would like to try a few different things with the riffs I played and maybe change some of this up a tiny bit. If I had the time I'd definitely seek out some players/singers for this. Maybe some day....

I appreciate the support John, thanks!

Great sounding drums
and programming! Very impressive after just a couple of hours. Definitely nothing crappy about your guitar too.
