Hi,

here's the rough instrumental recording of the inspiration from this morning's listen to Tool's album "10.000 Days".

Watcha think about the composition so far? It should not be finished yet, there's more to come after the 3rd minute!


EDIT:

Here's the finished instrumental pre-production:

Hi Timothy,
nice idea, go on with this.

BTW i`m not shure if it`s possible to hear "too much 10000 Days"

Gruss aus Köln und danke für den Ohrwurm:-)

Happy to hear that you like it. But you're right; you can never listen too often to this brilliant album!

The drums will be adjusted velocity-wise later on and I think I'm gonna re-record the guitars. But the basic sound is what you can hear now.

Has anyone got some ideas for the lyrics or even wants to collab with his/her voice? I'd really appreciate it.

Aw that's Tool! Very, very awesome.
That bass knaws at my chest and I love it.
Would love to do some vocals on this but I just couldn't do it justice. I hope someone does.

Great job on the mix too. Got that similar sound to how 10000 days is mixed to crank. Did you reference it with that album?

But for Tool albums, cant go past Undertow. The way that's mixed is another world.

Thanks, man!

Didn't mix anything so far actually.

Drums: raw Steven Slate samples.
Rhythm guitars: Waves GTR with a bit of EQ.
Lead guitars: S-Gear on one track.
Bass: yeah, quite mangled. Mainly tape saturation and JS:bassprofessor (http://jsplugins.supermaailma.net/)

No Reverbs, except on the atmo-tracks in the middle.

Well there you go. Don't do too much more with the mix because it's sounding quite nice.

Thanks, Sammy and Scott.

Fortunately there's a guy over at KVR who wants to add his voice to this beast.

I'll keep you updated when he sends me his stuff.

This is a really good basis for some vocals - I can hear several places where I expect the vocal to go from a reverby woozy feel to a scream. But I would try to get the vocalist *not* to do what is expected. You have a really interesting evolution of sound and feel. Encourage the vocalist not to hide that with a formulaic approach.

I'm curious to see the direction that you take this. Keep posting.
