    Breathed some life into an old track

    So I've started to record metal again, just as a solo project for now. I haven't been writing/recording metal really since my last band ended and I started Glassknuckle. But I still get the itch every now and then to play heavy music so figured I'd make this project and just dump any ideas I have into it. It might be a band one day, who knows, but right now I'm happy to just use it as a catharsis for the heavier riffs that come to my fingers.

    This is the first time in a long time that I've quad-tracked all guitars too. I think I'm slowly coming back around to it, as it always sounds thicker deeper. It's more of a frequency wrestling match though of course, especially in the interest of tightness/definition, but I'll get there in the end.
    Recording. Mixing. Mastering. Editing. Re-Amping.

    Holy crap that was great something that almost never happens when people upload their soundcloud clips, i was headbanging along and enjoying it. The only part that maybe wasn't for me was the riff that comes up around 2:10 and a couple of other times, just because it's a bit less dark than the rest.
    I would definitely want to listen to more stuff from where that came from

    Antidote to hope. That's fuckin' brutal!

    Love the riffs and the mix Mattayus!

    Just a question, how far do you pan each track to get that really thick tone?

    Sounds great, and I've always been jealous of your compositional skills.

    Is this a live amp or VST wizardry?
