    Quick recording - starting point of sorts

    Just fuckin' around trying to find a good starting point for tracks before I start mixing and ruining them with things like EQ and compression.

    Apologies as usual for:

    - Soundcloud re-encoding it and making it sound worse. I swear the hats don't sound that bad in the DAW.
    - The epic harmony lead. Honestly, I kind of forgot what the hell I played the first time, made something up, sounded decent enough for this, hey why not.

    Plenty of mistakes and not the most interesting thing to listen to, but this is with no post/eq other than a HPF/LPF on the guitar and bass tracks. Doesn't sound terribly awesome, but I think it's a decent enough starting point.

    That's also not my "real" lead tone, just something I use when jamming around by myself with a fun bunch of gain/delay/verb on it. I figure I'll work on that once I'm happy with the rhythm sound. All the lead/overlay stuff on this is just something I made up on the spot, so it doesn't necessarily fit all that well.

    Highlight: Epic sustain out of the Carvin at the end. I could have held the note a good bit longer, but I started laughing at how long it was going for. I felt like Spinal Tap or something.

    Two tracks, 100% pan, one bass track and Metal Machine for drums.

    I feel like the video for this needs to be a knife demonstration. A guy stabbing varying layers of plywood, cutting bottles filled with water and then hammering the knife through a two by.

    Nice rhythm tones! should be fat when you add post-production.

    also the first lead octave part reminded me of Opeth's Deliverance or something lol!

    Starting off great I would say.
