    Well, my song is pretty much ready. Everything but the fast solo recorded. I even got the GP file done (Finally :D). Song structure and the style of different parts (As in fast/slow, melody/riff etc.) mostly came from Joonas. The song is slightly strange due to the beat changes but it has some pretty cool parts in it. Not my best one, but it isn't bad. Surprisingly good when you think about how I did it (Followed Joonas' instructions as much as possible with a few tweaks here and there).

    You want it now (As in probably a few days from now. I need to finish the orchestrations) or later with Arcane's solo in it too? Or do you want to listen to the "full album" in January?

    Well when it's ready I'll definitely check it out. :D It's interesting tho, I think song structure is something that's deeply embedded with the intended energetic shifts in the music's soul, I'd say soundworld, musical ideas and structuring all go hand-in-hand.

    I like it. While listening I got the idea that it might work well to add a melody right after the first chorus. You also used my favorite trick at the end (Making a double chorus at the end and modulating the second one)! :lol: I do it so often that we've been talking about modulation inflation for a while now.

    It seems I missed the hype train for this, but I'm still down to throw something together. Someone get Ensi in here. Now that I finally have decent gear I can actually record and showcase my horrendous playing.

    Link me these on steam or on here or something if you could. I don't seem to have them anymore.

    You know what? I'll humor you and if you make a layout for a song I'll try to emulate it within reason.

    I call dibs on this. I'm an arcane fanboy, notice me senpai.

    Autist, reporting in here. Find Ensi and let's make some cheesy, 200bpm ish melodeath song with tons of shredding and riffs and brutal lyrics about kangaroos and sandwich toppings. I think that's covering all of the essentials.

    Here're Joonas' instructions:

    "0:00 &#8211;
    slow doom beat intro, slow riff, grand piano transposed very low-pitch

    0:15 &#8211;
    increases to medium slow tempo, with atmospheric guitar solo, keyboard background choir descending from medium to low pitch

    1:00 &#8211;
    intense orchestral hit seizes moment, ultra fast bass, beat goes about 140bpm, technical guitar (riff 2) starts

    1:05 &#8211;
    ultra fast double bass

    1:15 &#8211;
    verse 1: low grand piano supporting riff 2, 140bpm

    1:30 &#8211;
    instrumental chorus melody, 200bpm

    1:45 &#8211;
    verse 2: riff 3, 140bpm

    2:00 &#8211;
    riff 2, ascending keyboard choir while beat increasing to 200bpm, whispering vocals

    2:10 &#8211;
    doom riff 1

    2:15 &#8211;
    dark electro keyboard, 50bpm doom section with intro riff as background for a dark and epic guitar solo

    3:15 &#8211;
    verse 3: guitar (riff 3), ending in orchestral hit

    3:40 &#8211; 3:55
    instrumental chorus melody again for outro



    This should be with black metal vocals, if any. Not exactly sure about how many bpm should be and the time gaps, just imagined from my head. It has two slow sections with slow atmospheric solo, some black metalish parts, and an instrumental chorus. (I'd personally like to do music with one doom metal guitar, one echoing lead guitar, and industrial keyboard elements - this is not intended to be 100% Bodom.)

    The whole thing includes:
    3 guitar riffs
    2 solos
    1 chorus melody
    1 keyboard choir
    1 dark electro keyboard section
    5 drum patterns
    "

    I did a song based on them, but go ahead and make another one.

    Couldn't agree more, still can't go on with it...so.. hyper modern...
    And they should bring back the online user list on the top of the topics. Btw, this green pulsing beacon on the left is a bit annoying. Maybe I will search for the "reclamations" topic

    And just like that I've already changed my mind. At least I tried though I suppose.

    Search the old threads in Off-Topic, they should have all of that info there.

    So, after finding the right thread and reading 50 pages of bullshit (Took almost two hours! You can imagine I was getting bored by the end :D), I finally got all the names for the first album.

    Lowberg - Bottom Of The Barrel
    Flappy - Reprisal
    Ensi - Do We Need This Thread
    Mystique - Dusk Interwined
    Tim Merrick - Slow Demise
    COCOB - Ode To Spaghetti Carbonara
    JMBullet & Crazy Chris - Chosen One
    Dave - Blacken
    Warheart - Resurrection Of The Dead

    It's still in recording/mixing stage. Arcane is making the drums and the fast solo. I've done my parts though I might re-record some parts to make them tighter. Problem is there are some parts that are pretty hard to play (Well, mostly it's one riff) and there's no guarantee that a re-recording of said riff would be any better than the current one.

    How are other people progressing with their songs?

    Mine is composed, and partly recorded.
