    I recently have been trying out the Plugin-Alliance amp sims. I fell in love with the VH4 and Herbert, then decided to try the Engl and the Friedman. Super modern metal stuff is easy and it's the best guitar tones I've ever gotten. I recently fell in love with 80s inspired chorus saturated metal rhythm tones and all of those amps do that extremely well.

    I decided to record just some sample riffing with those tones last night......somehow I ended up with super low gain Goth music and liked it so much I started working on furthering it. I have no idea how I got to this, this was NOT the intention and I have never...NEVER played guitar with gain this low. If I hadn't have done it myself I never would have figured that I made this. I failed...I failed real bad

    Have a listen

    I can't listen real loud right now cuz my son is sleeping, but I think it sounds pretty damn good! Now just admit that The Cure is your favorite band:lol:

    It's funny..I hate most goth music because it's not heavy enough and it always sounds like mopey surf rock. I prefer the more electronic goth genres.

    Damn that’s some real “sad boi hours” stuff. I like it. Keep doing that stuff as a side project. Delay and reverb are lazy, chorus is for Kings.

    I really like it! If I had to compare it to a vibe I'm getting or put someone's voice on it I would say Peter Steele from Type O Negative would soundg great on it. Good quality too man. Great job! : )

    Thanks! The bass tone is my favorite thing. I love a good rumbly kind of bass tone.

    I actually don't hate this either. :lol: You just need a killer cleanish-toned baritone singer on this. I'm sort of hearing someone like the guy from HIM, maybe...?

    I like that.

    It made me want to sing along, but then I realised I don't go low enough.

    Cool song, man. I liked it as well, the vibe on it. This is the interesting thing about art. Sometimes We end up creating songs and sonorities that We don't even know how it started and then, the magic happens. Keep it up!

    I dig the song, but you are definitely clipping on your master mixer channel and it is very noticeable. Bring your master channel down like... 1.5 db and it'll sound way better.
