    Yes, absolutely. That's what I love about it -- it's got mids that grind and tear shit up, but then there's this massive chunk on palm mutes. IMO Seymour Duncan dialed the low end just right with this pickup; any more bass and it would start to flub, any less and it just wouldn't be as satisfying on palm mutes.

    Okay... cool. Just checking what my ears hears. Lol. :cheers:

    When you play on the D to High E strings it's like a somewhat beefed up SD Distortion... but play some chugging power chords or palm mutes on the low E or A ... and you're like... BOOM!... where did that come from. Definitely something different.

    Hey guys. So I got around to making a new video. This is my first video using my new Engl E530, I like how it turned out. And as for the conversation above (sorry for interrupting) yes, Black Winters sound good in bright guitars, as you will hear in the video below.

    ^^^Nice work; and nice playing. That didn't sound overly bright at all. Just great thick but clear tone, all in all.

    I've got a brutal death metal track almost finished that I'll share here in a week or so. Gotta keep reppin' the Black Winter love (or is it hate?:deathm::lol:).

    Thanks! Glad you like the song and the tone. There's a high and low pass filter on 100Hz and 10KHz, respectively and some compression but other than that there's no post production.

    I've got a new song I'm working on too, it'll be in C sharp and sounds a little like At the Gates that I'm excited to finish. I'll look forward to hearing your track. Absolutely, I guess it could be either haha.

    At this point I actually do, given the amount of times I've answered how they sound in "x" tonewood or how they react. Who wants to help me write this? :lol:

    Hey guys, here's another song. Also, if any of you happen to be interested, I'll be putting out bass playthroughs of my songs every other week too. Obviously I won't upload those here since they have nothing to do with SD Black Winters but I'm just letting you guys know.



    Also, KaiM, what happened to that black metal song you were working on?

    Nice work Zombie -- keep doing what you do! And nice reference to an At The Gates lyric! I've been meaning to do a proper cover of "Slaughter of the Soul" this summer -- it's one of my warm up songs.

    As for that black metal song I shared a portion of about a month or so ago -- it's 99% finished and it turned out to be the best song I've ever done. I'm going to add some vocals and have a few minor tweaks to make on the drums and it'll be finished. I may still wait to release it with my full album this Fall though, as it is the grand finale of the album.

    I do have a Bloodbath meets Decapitated meets Cannibal Corpse death metal song I'll share real soon. :lol: I had it all mixed and pretty much finished but then I came up with a super sick riff that I think I need to sandwich in there somewhere.

    Thanks, I will! I'm glad you picked up on the AtG reference, I thought it sounded like a cool song name so I've literally been planning on using it for like 2 months haha. I'm working on another one that sounds a little black metal influenced. By that I mean lots of inverted power chords haha.

    Okay, I look forward or hearing it when it's finished.
    As for the Slaughter of the Soul cover, seriously let me know when you do that, I love that song haha.

    That's funny, I get sudden riff ideas to add into songs too, but it's a hassle because I usually can't do sections, I need to do a whole take so it becomes super time consuming, I end up just making a new song out of them, use them as the building blocks from which to draw inspiration from, you know? Like this song, I had a section I thought would sound great, couldn't really fit it in and now I'm just using it as the intro to the new song I'll start working on as soon as I've put that bass playthrough together.

    Can't we just get this thread stickied? That would be the easiest route I think.
