New Song?

Got another rough cut for you all.  Have a listen and let me know what you think!

We have a simple intro that leads into a pretty bluesy progression at 0:41.  The banjo parts on this will be great, I’m certain.

Also, keep in mind that this should be recorded on acoustic guitar, but I used my electric to make it easy to go from clean to distorted.

Anyhow, at about 1:36 we reach this transition that leads into a heavier chord progression.  I can hear some strong clear-throated singing with perhaps some screaming mixed in.  This allows for the portrayal of strong emotion.

At 2:14 though, we definitely invoke some death metal influence.  This makes this song a good candidate for Track 7, which has the epic battle between Abram and the lynch mob.  The breakdown that starts at 2:27 seals the deal for me. (It’s repetitive right now though, needs to be spruced up!)

There is much work to be done on this song, but again, it’s a start.  I didn’t write this with Track 7 in mind, but knowing this now will help me shape this song into something appropriate.

You may have noticed that each track has its own page now. From here it should be easy to track the progress of each song. Check it out in the left menu!

  1. Sounds good so far. Looking forward to hearing it with the banjo.

  2. Shaping up nicely so far. I like the progression at 1:40. A little slower and that will be a great doomy black section. It works pretty good with the feel the song is starting to build.
