Angles

By scottux on January 14, 2018 10:29 pm

Set a theme for myself this week: Angles. Noise, Squares, Saws, Clipping, just general harshness. I think there are some things I'd spend more time on if I had given myself the time to do so, but this feels pretty well explored smile

I think one thing I'm trying to do more and more is leave the world of melody behind with my projects this month. Explore the chaos and leave pretty noises for another day.

Gear rundown!
This was all done "in the box", with Serum on synth duty, using the FuzzPlus3 among other distortions, and all FM drum duty carried out by Sonic Charge Microtonic.

goal accomplished, i'd say! Harsh AF. Very industrial.

Sounds like a field of daisies where a chainsaw wielding maniac decided he didn't like daisies..

F**K Man, I almost hide below my chair when hearing the initial fuzzed waves. Once the rhythm takes off, I was hooked. Really impressive tecno/industrial work! If harshness is what you wanted, this is it, indeed!

Anyway, you managed to balance it perfectly between those danceable arps and fuzzy chaos. Really diggin' this one!!!

Now you can add this Fuzz Face to your collection:

That's a real good mental image! I was inspired by the talk Mick Gordon did on how he created the sounds for the DOOM soundtrack, and wanted to get some of that "Rip and Tear" brutality in my soundcraftsmanshipery, so the chainsaw is doubly fitting smile

Maaaan, I need more fuzz pedals. Y'know, beyond the 3 I already have.

Wow.  I feel like you did a great job following through on your goals.  Here's my review:

Reminds me of Skinny Puppy's dancier days, just needs guterall barks over the top. Love the bubbling synths coming in towards the end.

January 15, 2018 5:44 pm

Oooh that crunch is nice. Nice and nasty. I love those subtly mixed-in arps in the middle. Just loud enough to make a difference but not overwhelming.

January 15, 2018 6:50 pm

Sounds edgy in a good way. I like this contrast between the saw and the arp in the middle of the track.

January 15, 2018 9:31 pm

Had my head nodding before the drums even came in.

Nailed the DOOM feel, Ive been listening to the ost the past weeks and that was actually one of the first things i thought of!

January 15, 2018 10:45 pm

Dark, gritty, industrial dancefloor killer. Loving it.

January 15, 2018 11:00 pm

crunchy

killed the vibe, cruchy as hell

January 16, 2018 8:33 am

anthem for an evil robot empire smile Impressive...

January 16, 2018 9:07 am

Yeah, I'd definitely dance to this

Thanks! I just wish I'd gone more places with it before I reached the end.

Yeah, I think the melodic parts could've taken away from the grit if they were much more than little flavoring.

Just a teensy taste of niceness before back to the fuzz!

Hell yeah, the bass is pretty dang percussive, right?

One day I might make something truly DOOM-like, though at that point I think I'll just be stealing tongue

Yeah, aside from the obvious DOOM comparisons, I also got like a Matrix / late 90's industrial vibe from this while I was making it. I think it's mostly due to the drums (even if the bass is the most obviously industrial thing).

I hope they will respect my licensing for this song when they enslave all of humanity.

I cannot ask for any higher praise than enthusiastic danceability

Definitely has a dark industrial, skinny puppy/download feel to this.  That grittiness is certainly addictive sounding too smile

I'd like to keep this sound and do a lot more rhythmically with it!

Mastering done lovely. Love the compression

TY! I think I ended up scaring a few people (see Laguna's comment tongue) but it sounds how I was hoping! I think it just isn't doing enough as a song, so maybe I'll revisit it one day

liking the fuzzy grungy techno!
