Very nice tune dude. It seems to be a perfect little interlude for an album.

I still wonder why I haven't been on Bandcamp yet - I is a crazy foo'.

I absolutely fricken LOVE your composition dude, especially the harmonies. Eargasmic to the max dude.

The rhythm is great, the bass is perfectly aligned with the drums.

Mixing and mastering sounds good - what are you doing for this by the way?

I'm loving the tones you're using for guitar - brilliant!

What crossed your mind when you were making this?

I'm glad you think that because that is the sole intention of that song.

You definitely need to get your butt on bandcamp.

I use Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro and I have an exhausting long mix/master process each track goes through before the final tune is produced.

Here's the short and skinny. The process is roughly the same for each track though the drums tend to have a extra steps because each part of the kit is done separately on it's own track. So one track for bass drum, a track for snares, a track for crashes, a track for splashes and so on.

Basically it's (And this is for the individual tracks): Volume, gain, EQ (Those three things usually take me on average 10 - 30 minutes for each track) then the track gets mixed down (I'll usually mix all the drum tracks down together).

After I have all the tracks mixed down they all go back into Cakewalk and I volume gain and EQ all the tracks together. After that I'll Mix all the tracks down together and upload that one track in Cakewalk again. This step I simply double the track and adjust volume so I don't blow the speakers. Another mixdown. The final mix step is to add a wholly reverbed track with super low volume and gain to the left and right which really beefs up the track.After that mix down I master the final track and add any last minute details, do the final mixdown and finished. All in all it usually takes the same amount of time, if not more, to mix and master my tunes than the recording process.

As far as my ideas for the tune:

As you know, the album is essentially about our hero's, whoever they may be. "Cortege", the first song on the album was the farewell march for our fallen hero. All the tears and sorrow happens here. "Lapse in Suspension" is not only the eulogy, but the intro to the next song, (our current project) which will be the reliving of the hero's roller coster life.

I like the lead that comes in at about 1 min. Overall pretty awesome. Pretty cool cover art too.

To be honest, I think any track should ALWAYS take ages to mix and master in order to perfect it. You've done a really good job with it.

I really like it and I'm glad to be a part of it! :) Looking forward to hearing the next bunch soon! :D

I totally agree. You can't really hear exactly what you are playing as you play it. Crazy concept, but one that I find inescapable. Means you really need to accomplish a lot post record. \

I am glad you like it. I think I've come a long way and I am also glad that you are on board to help me accomplish this goal.
