Tonight, Exhume Yourself

By onidavin on February 23, 2020 12:40 am

This sounds a bit different than my usual style! Rather than having synths and crispy drums leading the way, we've got very distorted guitars and crunched-to-hell drums. This was my first time using Valhalla Vintage Verb, was happy with the sound I could get out of it. Mixing was a challenge, had to fight my compressors across multiple stages to get it where I wanted. The end result kinda reminds me of A Place To Bury Strangers. The way the drums were processed was very NIN-inspired.

dope track, I think the mix is good. I totally get the NIN feel on the drums, I think you nailed it.

Wow. This could be a track in oldschool Quake (I think Trent Reznor had a hand iirc?) Love the perc. Guitars are nice and crunchy. I'm really digging the industrial bent.

Is that a choir at the end? Whatever it is, it needs more of that.

It's a Reese I made a while back to mirror the sound effect that's used in Annihilation. Hitting it in short bursts, same notes as the guitar, with reverb. Makes a real upsetting sound. My favorite part, glad you liked it too big_smile
