New Sounds, new Songs?

Actually there are no new songs, just playing around a little bit with some new sounds for the drums.

This is the basic setup, but still it sounds far different from the songs we have so far. Have a look:

You might wonder, why I tend to write that less. First, it’s quite late for during the week (I know, I’m getting old). Secondly this post is more a dummy for people interested in joining the band.

Interested? ;)

More updates later on this week…

Building your own…. drum pedal?

Though I was asked to blog about leaving projects and reasons, I won’t. Sorry to disappoint you frank ;)

To give you some general updates, I have started another musical project, which might be interesting for some of you. We are waiting for people to join the Open Death project. As far as I can tell some folks already stated interest and hopefully we will be able to keep you updated. Even if you are not a musician, this is your chance to create music as you like it, well…. given the fact you like Death Metal…

To sum up, I found a very cool link. Unfortunately it is in german, but having a look at the pictures will give you an impression about this extremely great hobby, which is building your own drum pedal. Actually it is a double bass drum pedal and the final result really looks awesome. Also following the milestones in between is totally cool, so have a look here.

 Starting point

The final result

Musical Updates…

Due to public interest a quick update on our songs, actually uploading an absolute preversion of our third song right now. If you have missed the first two, just go here.

This is by far not the cleanest record as well as very unfinished drums. Things got reassembled in the meantime, but you get the basic idea.

Things to mention, which happened so far already:

  • the clean part after the second chorus got some more marching drums on snare with some bass hits
  • the beginning of the double-time part got a little bit more Metallica like (yeah I know, it already sounds lots like this)
  • imagine some more double-bass games (/me gets used to experiment with the feets for fills again)
  • imagine by far more fills (well, actually imagine any fill. Currently it’s really empty)

Anything more to say? Well happy eastern, but I guess that’s it. And sorry for providing alpha-sounds, but hey, this is still partly a blog about development, so you should be used to it, ay :)

So here you go:

P.S.: As too many people seem to take me serious, comments and impressions are actually welcomed.
