6 or 7 years ago
I started an instrumental metal/proggy/math-rock sort of band with my friend's Mike (bass), Ben (guitar), and Bill (drums). We had a single show (pictured above), where we performed 5 of the 6 finalized songs that we had. However, in that time period, I was writing tons of new riffs and stuff that I was hoping would be incorporated into the band, but since we broke up after that show as Ben moved away, that didn't happen.
I recorded this using
Doggiebox (Mac App for drums) and Garageband with my amp DI'ed into my laptop. This was going to be our newest song, and I had actually begun teaching it to Ben and Bill, but alas that never materialized. Luckily, I have this demo version to have a record of the actual tune. The intro is cool, I love the bendy guitar riff that we begin with and how the rhythm adds/subtracts beats at certain points. When we get to the main riff, we have a riff in 10/8, then the little hammer-on/lead line in 9/8, which alternate back and forth. The break of this song is kinda random, and was just made on the spot (completely improved the rhythm guitar, added a lead later), so that would've definitely been changed if this was performed.
I hope you enjoy the throwback tuneage! Thanks for listening!
