W1B3 (DOOM inspired 7-string riffage)

By Tweaklab on March 29, 2020 12:27 pm

This whole track was really just an excuse to make another track using the 7-string seeing as it's been 12 weeks since the last one!

The main riff is super DOOM E1M1 in a few ways, so I just rolled with that and tried to keep it interesting. The mix is pretty bad, fighting with compression and maximisers to get things punchy and present, but with a few obvious trade offs.

This is hands down the most technical sort of riff I've written and been able to play (it actually took more than an hour of practice to get the riff down pat) and of course, double tracked guitars. Oh and clocking in at 185bpm, A Standard tuning smile

and for those who would like to play along at home!

The guitar sound and opening riff reminds me a bit of Boltthrower.  Legendary 90s band.  And man, I used to play so much Doom.  Haha.
