    Well, when i say new... it's on an old song (again! Yes, sorry, this really is the last time i re-record these now i've found a tone i will stick with!). It's just the end riff, from about 3:25 onwards on 'Remove The Head'.
    SoundClick artist: Mattayus - Traditional heavy metal with a twist of prog, influenced by thrash and power metal with added groove


    Also, if you can bear to listen to them anymore, No More Room In Hell and Exhumed Alive (as well as Remove The Head) have new tones and mixes, and i have a new Kick drum (woohoo) as well as re-mixed drums.

    I'm really happy with how these sound now, MUCH much better than the originals. It's taken me about a week of tone testing and re-recording to get to grips with the Metal Shop upgrade, but i've finally stuck with something i like (which, as ever, is the first one i chose anyway! just tweaked).

    Anyway, enjoy :wavey:

    Piecey, disjointed, confusing, and groovy as all fuck! :rofl:

    A very fitting addition to a song that's already forged to a state of pure, unadulterated win. :yesway:

    I think he's referring to the kind of stuttering effect on the guitars in "Remove the Head" at 3mins?

    Awesome tone anyway man :metal:

    DO'H, I listened to Remove the head, sorry. is it a real killswitchbutton or something else?

    Listening to Exhume Alive now: not the usual djenting, I enjoyed it.
    No more room in hell had some nice leads, that outrosolo was awesome.

    Yeah something like that dude!

    Bout to re-record and change that lead bit towards the end, it's just occurred to me that it's terrible :ugh: Why did nobody tell me? :squint:

    Heh, if you're anything like me - or any other artist I know - then it'll NEVER sound good enough ;)

    Hell, I can't play lead to save my life, but they all sound fantastic to me!

    Well it was just that last part sounded really out of place that's all, especially the sloppy sweep to cap it all off :lol:

    on the original i had this eerie spooky dark lead bit going on, but the tone was shit, so i tried re-recording it and nothing would make sound good, so i tried that li'l solo thing, which was a one-take wonder so i stuck with it, but in hindsight it sounded awful. So, as you'll hear now, i just added some discordant harmonics!!

    that'll do pig, that'll do.
