[industrial/synthwave] Cellar Graves - witching hour
 



Resurrecting Cellar Graves for a debut EP soon. Teaser track - witching hour.

For fans of Skinny Puppy, FLA, John Carpenter, Goblin, and 80's horror film nostalgia.

Wow, cool. Reminds me a little bit of Skinny Puppy's "Testure". But more modern.

So glad to see you back at this project. The last Cellar Graves stuff you posted was really on point.

This track has a bit of Neon Cities in the feel - I don't know if you finish this after that or not, but the marriage of 80s industrial and new wave/synth sounds great. It sort of mellows out the rough edges of one and adds a bit of menace to the other. Some of the sound design reminds me a bit of Love's Secret Domain-era Coil in places.

As always, the mixing really shines. The heavy but cohesive reverb is a real shining point for me. I'm curious as to what all synths you used. There's some Ensoniq-y sounds in there...

Really digging this!
I listened 3 or 4 times now, and I donít really have any feedback to give. I just really enjoyed this.
Way more my style than the neon cities stuff. Just dark enough!

Ive been using Massive for the digital-y synths (the bell like synth chords) if you put Massive in "economy" mode it has a rough around the edges aliased sort of sound that i like better than it sounding all super hi-fi. The choir stuff is Kontakt, and the arpeggios come from a few different sources, Nordlead2 and a Oberheim OBX emulator VST.


(:


This tune was an attempt to sort of bridge the synth wave stuff w industrial so... you pretty much nailed it.

Thanks for listening!
