Not a big fan of black metal, but this I liked. Much better than the song you posted earlier. Clean vocals made me think of some Blind Guardian, harsh vocals a bit Wintersun. There was a lot going on in the song and I enjoyed it. Great atmosphere with the guitars, multi layering of the clean vocals was great idea, although synchronizing could have been better. I could listen to more of that.


Thank You! All this positive feedback really is making my day

Just listened to The Song The Forest Sings, love that too. Holy shit my tastes are really changing.

Wait a second... are you seriously suggesting that my atmoblack songs are good enough for you to (at least partially because of them) begin aquiring the taste for the genre itself?

If that's what you're saying, then this must be the greatest compliment I have ever received.

Probably not that far. Always preferred clean vocals, power metal, symphonic metal and the odd bit of melodic death/folk. So no personality changes just yet, I just liked those two songs quite a bit.

Hey guys, I listened to all the stuff that you posted and I have to say I was really impressed by some of those. I noticed that some of you dont have enough time to dedicate on recording/mixing/mastering your songs. I would be really happy to collaborate with you to mix/master your songs whenever you dont have enough time or simply you dont know have the appropriate knowledge to do it. You can listen to some of my work here : https://www.soundcloud.com/oceansoundsproductions. Im looking mostly to collaborate than earn money as I really love mixing/mastering

Heya! I might actually be interested in having someone improve my mixing in the very near future. Out of curiosity, what programs do you use and do you think you could improve say, my latest song "Cold Blue Ice" by a significant amount? I recorded everything on Guitar Rig 5, Notion and Audacity. I used a USB mic for vocals and for recording acoustic guitar. Is that too amateurish or can you work with that?

Hey there dude, I certainly believe I can enhance Cold Blue Ice sonically but its really up to you to decide if indeed this is true. I dont care if the gear is cheap, what I listened to Cold blue Ice seem like well recorded guitars/vocals. I use mostly Cubase as my workstation and as Drum machines I use Addictive Drums 2, Superior Drummer, Steven Slate Drums and I have a few Guitar simulators (Bias, Revalver 4, Guitar Rig 5) but It all comes down to what the artist wants to achieve soundwise. A reference song of a similar genre band you really like would help

PS. I believe something like Dissection's "Storm Of the Light Bane" is close soundwise, but thats my personal view.

I'm actually doing 2 things right now, but I'm hoping for a 3rd to come up eventually.

I've got my personal 1-Man-Album in the works:
(Video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhX3T_u8lOo
(SoundCloud) https://soundcloud.com/the3rdtausk/birth-album-sneak-peek
(ReverbNation) https://www.reverbnation.com/the3rdtausk/song/26867451-birth--sneak-peek-

Then I've got a collaborative thing on the go called 'The J3T BL4CK Project' (Which is where I collab my One-Man styled thing with other artists of any kind)

PS: I'm still learning how to compose Metal for the most part, as I come from doing EDM and punk rock, but I Think(?) I'm doing okay so far. Haha.

Thanks to anyone who check my stuff out, ahead of time!

Thinking of ditching the rock/metal stuff for awhile and maybe trying to do some ambient/horror music with minimal use of keyboards and/or guitar.

Here's an example of what I am thinking of doing in the future (all sounds made with the human mouth, except for the clink-clink-clink, made with a finger and a coffee cup):

Let me know, if there's potential in this.

^cool stuff! I suppose you recorded the noises (as you say mouth and fingers were used) and then applied a load of effects? What I like about dark ambient is that it doesn't take much to do if you have the right ideas, so it's a load of fun!!


Had a couple of friends that encourage me to continue doing dark ambient/experimental as it could apparently fit in sort of creepy cinematic music stuff. Sort of like this
--> shameless self-whoring


Also related is the quite great label Cryo Chamber, even if the stuff I went through really have a tendency for repetition with the same atmosphere and approach.

Recorded everything in Audacity and only used pitch and tempo changes, echo and reverb.

Anthroskepsis
Hello metal world,

I'd like to introduce my band, Anthroskepsis. The music has been described as Melodic Nu-Death or Growler Rap Metal.This is a one person project at the present time, and I'm mainly just working on getting my music heard. I've released 3 albums to iTunes, Amazon.com, Spotify and the like. I'll throw some links down below.

But a little info about the music itself: the instrumentals are mainly influenced by early death metal, some thrash and some folkish touches. I dabble in the melodic realms of metal as well, with some detectable In Flames-esque nodes. The vocals are primarily done in a midrange death scream, with some lows and some highs thrown in, and the pacing of the vocals is based a lot on a fast-paced rap delivery. There are also a couple songs where the vocals are primarily sung, and the backing music a touch softer.

I am hoping to gain some feedback on the music,as I've worked very hard to hone in on the sound and have been putting a lot of effort into the product of my musical endeavor. Honestly, positive or negative feedback is welcomed. I understand I'm not a commercially produced band, so there's going to be room for improvement. I am also interested in collaborating with anyone who feels they would be interested in contributing to the sound or has a similar style to mesh with. Check out the albums below, even just the 30 second clips if you'd like and let me know what you think!

1st release "Ragnarok"-
https://itun.es/us/4QGogb

2nd release "Anthroskepsis (self titled)"-
https://itun.es/us/w1Fpgb

3rd release "The Skeptic"-
https://itun.es/us/MYTogb

Again, hoping to get some feedback on my music and looking forward to checking out any other bands I find on this forum.

This is a good sample of the kind of music I specialize in. Nu-Death. Sort of a mixture of death metal and tech n9ne style rap vocals. Check out this lyric video for R.E.M.

My 2nd split screen video and a new song, not metal though. Lyrics are in Estonian.

I went back to one of my favorite genres: meldodic punk(ish) rock, which some in Estonia call new-romantic punk rock.



Here's a very rough translation of the lyrics:

Once my earthly woes have ended
I hope no one will dig me a grave
Funerals, coffins and all that jazz
Is a bunch of pointless crap
Put a Vennaskond (an Estonian punk band) T-shirt on me
And throw me into the swamp

We have many bogs here
And there's plent of space in them
When wearing my favorite band's T-shirt
I will become a cool bog body
It will be fun to find me in the swamp
Like Frodo and Sam found an entire army
The bog keeps my body from decomposing
And I shall see no harsh days

I've been to too many funerals
And I find it silly
Staring at a lifeless corpse
Why is an open casket such an obsession?
Funeral's are a bunch of pointless crap
My friends, I ask of you: throw me into the swamp.
