Wrote/recorded this in ~2 hours or so while my son was napping. Nothing fancy but still pretty happy with the result.

Always real guitar! I heard this slow roto pedal and had to use it. Fit too well.

Wow, fantastic evolution and CRUCIAL buildup at the end!  Serious chill into serious headbanger.  Fantastic metal mix.

I wanted someone to be able to sit on their front porch and relax with some iced tea while staring into the sunset to the ending of this song.

The comments spoiled the surprise that this would build into massive headbanger, but it was still worth it. YEAH! Love how that builds, good payoff. Great guitar work!

Thanks! I think the tease is my favorite part haha. Was nice to change it up instead of going full on into the heavy section.

I really like this track! Excellent slow and very beautiful first part which evolves into more heavy driven part!
