how do i does it? I'm looking to write some of this shit but whenever I sit down and grind around low on the neck it's always underwhelming. This is probably just because I'm alone with a guitar and a relatively small amp, but I don't want to show up to a jam with a bunch of boring riffs. What I'm assuming is this. 1) Throw theory out the window. Done. I barely know any anyway. 2) Palm mute most things 3) Chromaticism 4) Grooves 5) "omgwtfbbq" ridiculous riffs that are impossible to tab and sound like a whirlwind of gore. This is the hard part. I don't listen to much goregrind specifically but I'm right into any death metal and that includes that awful OTT slam stuff like Drowning in Phemaldehyde and Artery Eruption. I figure I can take what I know there and come up with something that would work. What I'm after is a decidedly death metal influenced, brutal, crude, gory kind of sound. Slam parts are fine, ridiculous fast parts are great, and general sloppiness is paramount. It has to sound bad, but in a controlled way. Anyone here play over the top death metal/goregrind/grind? Writing tips?
