Creative Brief

All this really needs at this stage is acoustic drums and maybe someone might want to take a shot at a really glorious mix. Seven07 is going to lay down a drum track for me, which is the main reason I uploaded this at all. But I'd love to hear if anyone wants to take a shot at mixing this, or if you have an idea for a new track.

This song is not typical of the fare you get here. Some songs transcend the era they were recorded in, and stand apart because of the sheer musicianship, or undying appeal of the track. Blue Oyster Cult's "Veteran Of The Psychic Wars" is one of those songs. Originally released as one of a number of tunes which created the soundtrack for an adult fantasy animated feature film titled; "Heavy Metal", which was first shown on screens in 1981, one has only to listen to the song once to recognize that it is larger than the film, larger even than just any simple rock tune from that era. For me, BOC chased the quality and epic nature of this tune the rest of their careers, to varying degrees of success.

I actually laid down most of the tracks for this several years ago. The guitars for this were done by a friend of mine who goes by the screen name "CapM" around here. He's never posted a project or worked on anyone else's... maybe you guys could bug him into participating. He's a rare talent on guitar. All the rest of the tracks were done by me, including the midi drums. Getting acoustic drums for this is the main reason it is posted here now.

This is a very special project for me. I hope you appreciate the work, and the result so far. This is definitely one that I will spring for a license to sell if we produce a quality finished product.

Oh, I'd welcome someone taking a shot at Bass... My track works, but could be improved upon. If interested, note me and I'll upload a track with no bass for you to work with.

As always, enjoy.
