Re: [US Black Metal] Agent Slimepunk - Worm Lore

I get zero black metal from this. It's thrash to my ear, late 80s/early 90s. I get a real early Sepultura vibe from it.

That said, it's fucking awesome. Rocks straight on through, couple of nice change ups. The little slide down bits that come in around :45 are really choice.

So...technical geeky info? What's the setup? Just you or are there more people involved? Programmed drums? Where'd the great guitar tone come from? Will there be more? Inquiring minds want to know.

Have to agree with Artificer, not what I'd call Black Metal - but still very nice.
Drums could use a little more bottom.
Look forward to hearing more.

Re: [US Black Metal] Agent Slimepunk - Worm Lore

dude, you can riff so I suggest you move towards crossover/hc because first part sounds just like that. You could make drums half-tempo so it could melt more faces, kind of like that beatdown approach similar to xHCx bands. I get why you called this black metal but tremolos sound weird with such drums and they feel very hardcore in general. It also feels that tempo is too fast for black metal, but it's unique in some way because you seem to not follow one single genre in particular. If you're up for some criticism (I'm sure you are), drums sound really weird, might be a tuning, feels a bit too quantized and dry (snare sounds like scott stapp spanking his own butt). I know it's hard to get them right but you need to test more sample libraries that offers entire kit presets, there are always ways to layer snare and get it more meaty because a current one feels kind of weak. You can also use those old-school methods and drown drums in reverb:

Re: [US Black Metal] Agent Slimepunk - Worm Lore

So about the black metal thing, I was going for a blackened thrash sound while simultaneously listening to way too much chick metalcore, so I basically ended up trying to model the mixing of one and the playing of another, so I don't know what it really is in the end. I guess it's metalcore, essentially.

Thanks for the critique! The guitar and bass were all guitar rig, and 1/2 of the drums was a freeware VST (MT power drumkit is boss, I don't care what anybody says). I had to use Slate's kick and snare, but I think I fucked up the kick somehow.

Yuss, good critique Scott Stapp. The weird thing about that snare was that I had to high pass the shit out of it, but I find myself doing that a lot with libraries because I don't know mixing. If I were to head in that kind of direction, I'd probably just do powerviolence or grindcore with loads of tempo changes. I also agree I can't do black metal; it takes something I don't have. Also, how many black metal bands are there from Florida (aside from Creed)? I know, none. I checked.

I think there might have been 2 S.S. butsmacks (aka snare drums) layered in there, but I blame my own EQing on that sounding like a wet bag of pasta being dumped on the assphalt (ok, I'm out of puns). I definitely wanted to try some convolution there (instead of the room modeling in the Slate libraries) but my CPU almost didn't let me render this file in the beginning.

I should have gotten more ram, but I got a cheap guitar instead. Should've had a V(8) Metal.
