V8 Here's Julian doing a playthrough for the instrumental track "Doggo Mlerm" - whats cool is you can hear & see him laying into that low e string. Part of the djent sound (imho) is that the open strings really get a chance to warble as you're hitting them HARD and letting them ring out and then muting aggressively. Try South of Heaven (fav riff of mine too) de-tuned a step or three and let the open e string that you start the riff off with warble while you play the rest of the riff - deeply satisfying 😀
Thanks for posting this. Glad the camera spent some non-glitchy time on the fretboard so its easy to what he is doing. Yeah, I'll give south of heaven a go with my guitar detuned --- sounds like fun. I think I'll have to spend some time getting the muting right.
Also thanks for the advice w.r.t. the bass. Listening to my entry again, I think I would give the bass a more dirty tone (not sure my little modeler is up to it) and maybe put it a little less loud in the mix (at least while the bass drum is not double-kicking).
I just gave all the entries another listen, I think my favorite bit of yours is the rhythm change ~1 minute from the end. Love it, and it fits the song so well.
@RCVN That Lonely/Sickness mashup has a lot of potential, but I think they go so well together, the tricky bit is figuring out where to add your own original bits. W.r.t. your vox, I don't have a real issue with the recording quality, I think it came out OK, but it does sound like you are straining to reach the high notes though, maybe it will sound more natural a half-step or whole-step down? Anyway, I'm no vocalist so take it with a pinch of salt.
@guidothepimmp There is some nice technical guitar playing in there, I think your entry was for sure the hardest to play. Your previous band must've rocked pretty hard, what were you called, did you ever record anything? Love the megaphoned vocals, the section from ~40 seconds to ~1 minute defs has some battery9 vibes.
@daveo1977 You nailed the DJ intro vibe, I can easily imagine a "mornings with blablabla" voiceover going on top of your track.
