    Damn, dude- you’re a machine. I like what I have going but I’ll probably be in at the last minute because of all the snow shoveling I’ve had to do since last Friday.

    I like this- probably my favorite entry of yours so far. Lots of cool little moments in it.

    Thanks! And now I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do next... But looking forward to hearing yours.

    Got something done this week. Came up with this sleazy riff and decided to go on with it.

    This made me want to go out and kill zombies.

    There's this old flash game called Zombiegrinder 60000 where you run through a ruined city killing zombies while listening to grindcore. While this isn't quite the same music style like in that game, I get that zombie-killing vibe from this.

    That's good stuff. Has a nice 70s/Retro groove to it without sounding dated or cheesy. Dig it!

    Thanks! That's the second zombie comment I've received... maybe I need to reach out to Kirkman and ask if he needs some Walking Dead tunes...

    Love how groovy it gets when the main riff comes in.

    I really hope you had a fog machine going while you recorded that. Very nice!


    Kinda ended up with two songs smushed together, but I feel like it more or less works. I'll take any feedback I can get, but if anyone feels like pulling on their sturdiest pair of latex gloves and ripping my drum tracks a new one (primarily in terms of composition), have at it. I feel like I'm still at the point where it's really obvious I'm a non drummer programming drums, and I'm having a really hard time breaking out of that.

    I really dig the music and the mood of it. Truthfully, the drums aren't bad at all.




    Here's my entry. Somewhat thrashy, and still rough around the edges, mix wise. The verses reminded me of Testament's Trial By Fire (I was gunning for that quick, simple Testament drumming) and the middle section is kind of like Metallica's Breadfan cover. I wanted a specific bass sound similar to Frank Bello from Anthrax or Maiden's Steve Harris but I wasn't sure how to get it. I ended up adding some chorus to the bass, tweak the EQ, and called it good. On to week 7!

    Nice! I get sort of a early Swallow the Sun vibe from some parts, which is cool.

    The bass does sound cool - not just the sound, but also the bass lines.
