[stoner/doom] Apocryphal Throne - The Day of our Demise

Apocryphal Throne is a one man musical endeavor of Denver musician and producer Chase Dobson focusing on atmospheric, heavy post rock and metal sounds.

I will start listening to it in 11 minutes, as soon as I get out of the office and in the car.

Re: [stoner/doom] Apocryphal Throne - The Day of our Demise

sounds pretty great to me.

a few questions about production. first track has this sound that sounds like throat singing/scream, but it sustains for an inhumanly long time and doesn't sound like it's stretched or anything. how did get that sound? multiple takes crossfaded? sounds pretty smooth and evolving. it also sounds like it might be layered with some synth sound too. very cool.

In Memoriam, the clean guitar sounds like it's classical, particularly on the lower strings. though the higher strings do have that metallic clang, so it's probably not. but lower stings sound like nylon to me. pretty weird. and it sounds like you have some thing layered. it's a percussive sound, but it's really odd, like it's a bracelet hitting the body of the guitar or something like that. something unintentional. wtf is that?

anything else you want to add about your set up for this? did you do anything new and interesting for you? it seems like you banged out the whole thing in a week. that's pretty awesome.

- Thanks for listening.

- the opening throat singing bit is me, buried in verb. I used one of Ableton's "Complex" time stretching algorithms to make it twice as long. it does a great job of stretching without sounding overly processed. For that intro, on an aux send I have a Spectral Gate and Hold plugin, which "basically" takes any signals above a threshold and smears their spectrum for a defined amount of time. That's probably what you're hearing, i have a little bit of everything going to that send in the intro. The result is something like a reverb, but more pad-like and textural, oh, and then more reverb.

- the acoustic bit for the interlude is the result of several challenges. Student Acoustic guitar w mediocre electronics, and my shitty picking technique, nothing crazy layered there, 2 tracks of recorded guitar and "strings". I wrote this thing in a hurry, so i opted to just say "it is what it is" and left it at that. I could have mic'ed the guitar but my space isn't acoustically so great so it might have been even more problematic.... who knows, it was more of a "get it down and move on" sort of project. I needed to do something more "off the cuff" after doing so much programming for this industrial project I have a-brewing.

-additionally, this project came together quickly as a result of me developing a template session to record into, I dialed in some "generic" guitar and bass tones on channels as well as the "drum kit" on a midi channel w the sort of bus fx and eq i was shooting for. So rather than re-inventing the wheel for every tune, i treated the channels and settings like "walking into a practice space" and going for it. this was definitely more of a writing challenge than production exercise. I did make tweaks to the "amp settings" for certain things, but I have a little library of tones I've created as go-to's for this type of thing.

well, it sounds really good for what it is. seems like the best of both worlds: you can just jam out and be creative, without getting bogged down in technical mix, yet without sacrificing much in terms of mix quality. and obviously the odd things (acoustic guitar artifacts) just add character.

I shared it in a couple of facebook groups, one didn't get any likes but the other got about 6. Some of these fb groups are kind of snobby.

Currently remixing it with big room backbeats. You can expect "Day of our Dance-mise" booming in clubs everywhere this summer.

Really cool stuff!
My favourite bit is the layered picking and rim shots on the last track! I think that might be my favourite track. It's kinda hard tho since a lot of the tones are the same throughout. Especially that reverb tremolo picking bit.
Some bits remind me of some of the melvins heavy stuff!
