    Some time ago I did a cover of the Mayhem song 'Impious Devious Leper Lord' which goes in 3/4 for pretty much the entire song and it got me thinking of writing black metal in other time signatures than 4/4, which I bet a good 95% of all bm is written in. I think it works well and gives a cool and unique vibe, so I did an example and a lesson on how to do it with 7/4.

    Toughts? Is it cool or just a stupid gimick?

    In other news I also got a 'new' camera which is a Panasonic GH4, so the older model than the current GH4. It is very nice for shooting 1080p, and since I don't even have a 4k screen that works for me and is a great upgrade over my Canon 600D which could barely do 1080p at 25 frames a sec.

    Yo, sounds nice man! Do you know Krallice? They shared a bass tab of Inhume from Diotima which had quite a few sections in 7/4. Thought of that when I saw this.
