some new stuff here, beside just the solo, which is excellent. Gotta say, your vision on the vocal key was right on, and the moments of delay and harmony are very well used and not overdone. I really like the solo... some damn fine vibrato and just a very fitting solo to the song. Cool drop out on the chorus following the solo... spicy stuff. Really well done Anton

Thanks Mike, glad to hear you're ok with the key change. I also added one backing vocal myself :)

Wow!! Excellent! The vox sound perfect. I thought they were just a hair low in the last mix. I wasn't ready for that change after the solo lol! Freaked me out! Great work again....

Still not 100% happy with that first solo though in the beginning of the song. Might touch that up just a bit when my fingers heal from all of the playing I've been doing over the weekend lol! That's what I get for not playing for about a week and then diving right in like there's no tomorrow

Cool mix Anton. Great lead work Tony. Did I here some of my original lead in that mix? A little double lead action. nice touch. Sounds great All!!!

yep, the last 4 bars and the endnote of your solo. I figured it works nice, building to a lot of noise in the solo and then the drums&vocal break....cool contrast :)

cool cool, you should consider having this mastered by an engineer when your happy with the mix.This is a strong tune!!!!

+1 on that! But not yet please lol! Hoping to do one more touch up on that solo in the beginning of the song. That was kind of experimental. I can do better and this song certainly deserves it. Fingers are feeling better and I'm getting out the big guns......changing strings right now on my ESP with vibrato bar hehe. Should be able to come up with something a little more fitting for that part with this guitar...

looking forward to that solo...still, the track deserves some decent mastering. I'm aware the highs(above 5K) are a little too much...other than that, any suggestions for mastering? I put a lot of effort in keeping the dynamics real...I'd hate to see it compressed to bits.

I hear that. Love the dynamics in that mix. Just flipping the song on and listening to it I didn't hear anything that stood out (negatively) other than the drums were a little hot in the mix which is probably that 5K you were talking about......I think it sounds fantastic..

I think your mix sounds killer. not trying to imply anything. I will be having one of mine mastered soon. I guess I assume it will make things better but I guess I don't know till I here it. Rolling thunder will be doing the master for me. I'll let you know how it goes.

Sure........You just want to slip in more satanic messages in your version ha! I hope you know if I go out and do anything evil this weekend it's all your fault lol!

I think it all started with that evil bass track. Thanks Anton.

ToNeMan   commented 5yr+8mo ago


Hey Anton, I've been listening to the track, there is one thing that kind of sticks out. The vocal ideas after the solo sound very cool, but right before all the instruments come back in there's a "da daaa dant" kind of part with the bass and drums. That's the only thing that stands out to me in the mix. Thinking maybe it could be more dynamic or something. I tried adding a guitar chug chug chug onto it to give it a little more "umph" but it didn't sound right. Perhaps because the drums weren't strongly emphasizing that part along with it. It sounded more clumsy than good so I just left it out. But that's all I personally noticed in the mix that kind of stood out - hope this helps :) Oh....and I uploaded the newer solo. I think it sits a little better in the mix but use whatever sounds best to you. And that solo with me and Chad's guitars together especially the very intro sounds real tough! Love it!

Hey! I just noticed something weird at the very end of the song while listening with headphones real loud..........was that a backwards message from satan? lol! I hope my humor doesn't offend anyone.I sometimes get some weird sounds like that while using amp sims and lots of distortion.....

antonklinkt   commented 5yr+8mo ago


Not satan but Chad's yaya guitar...but knowing him it's probably some evil message ;)
