just so everyone knows, I wasn't kidding with my earlier post.
Other good albums to scour for this sort of feeling are VSnares Winter In The Belly Of A Snake, pretty much any early Skinny Puppy(I'm very fond of Rabies and VIVIsect VI myself), any Isis album (especially Mosquito Control and Celestial) and pretty much any Meshuggah album(i particularly klike Nothing, and Catch-33). Also Radiohead songs like We Suck Young Blood, The Gloaming, Climbing Up The Walls, Knives Out... OH, and mostly anything by Neurosis. Fuck is Neurosis even amazing.
EDIT: OH and a great example off these very forums: Abreaktor makes some pretty fucking moody stuff.
Oh, indeed! especially with dismal piano pieces. When I first started using Acid, I would stretch the fuck out of certain samples and orchestration to give it a real drawn out and creepy effect. I will say that i really had no idea of the "suspense" aspect at the time, but the end result was bleakness that I was quite proud of. Here is a link to my earlier stuff.[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register] (I dont mean this as a plug or spam, its purely reference)
I crey every time. After I'm done creying, I write a dark song from deep in my heart sorrow.
That was very touching, Im on the brink of creying myself. And I feel that I must share the fact that I was reading this my mind interpeted the spelling as someone from New Jersey. Now that my friends, is total bleakness.
minor "scales", verbs, iunno. i think i never did an uplifing track. this thread made me check up on the stuff i did and i noticed theres a track that i never bothered to finish, yet all the parts are lined out and i have a good idea about the overall final arrangement, will be something between 15 and 20 minutes overall. will finish it this weekend!
