    I learned classical a while ago, but I never practiced so I was shit haha, I still play whenever I'm bored and incorporate it into my music, but I'm only Grade 1 standard :lol:

    ARRA! ARRA! ARRA!
    DAGON! DAGON! DAGON!

    The lyrics are godlike too in that song and the outro with the group chant is the most evil thing I've ever heard in a song, trufax

    Well Karl uses a .10 on the high B, that plus scallops explains it.

    I just do my best to teach myself Bach and stuff. I've had no lessons. And I can read music, but not very well. I have to have a recording and I have to go one bar at a time. Whenever I do make a youtube video of guitar playing, I'll probably play some kinda classical shit, 'cause I'm better at it than electric, probably...

    This isn't really classical, but it makes me kinda like french people. =\

    Noah Martin is back in Arsis =]


    Fuck yeah!

    If you don't know who that is, he's pretty much the best bassist they had.

    They also seemed to have been way better when James Malone was fat and didn't wear make up...

    Do any of you guys have any advice for doing harsh vocals?

    Right now, I feel like the quality of my growls are terrible, but I'm not sure how to improve. I try to keep practicing whenever I can, but its hard when I have no idea what exactly to do. I understand that it's basically impossible to ever sound just like someone else, but I try to use the vocalists I like as a sort of guidance and inspiration. People like Bjorn Strid, Devin Townsend, and Peter Tagtgren.

    As far as actual harsh vocals go, I'm aiming for more of a higher register rather than something super brutal like Mikael Akerfeldt's lows. And definitely more "metal" style than hardcore or anything like that.

    My clean vocals are pretty good or at least decent, and I feel that those are a lot more straight forward. And I can pretty easily add grit to them, but beyond a certain level of that, I don't know how to go into super heavy territory, especially not while maintaining articulacy and (particularly) power.

    Thanks dudes!

    I suck at growling. But I aim for the pitch I want first, then volume/power, then the... well, I like to think of growls similarly as distorted guitar, so then after the first two, the "gain" sort of follows. XD It sounds lame as hell, but that's how I think of it. And just like with distorted guitars, I try to keep the mindset that "less is more." If you try to get the vocals too gritty then it just sounds like shit.

    That's my advice, but like I said: my vocals suck.

    @Delanoir: I get classical/pop/rock singing lessons. From what I've learned right breathing technique and mouth position are very very important. These things are very hard to achieve without a vocal coach. You have space for air in your body you never dreamed of.
    So if you have enough money: Don't hesitate to get a few hours of singing lessons or your throat will end up like the singer from BFMV or Bill Kaulitz.

    Yo! Came up with this melody last night and ended up composing a full song today from it. What you guys think?

    Awesomely played and I did like your guitar tone, but the song itself was pretty boring.

    Apply suitable amp, in this case I could take a guess It was a JCM800/900 sim or something from metal pack, add overdrive,noisegate,compression(if you prefer) and then you take a EQ and boost the mids like fuck, Use the X band EQ. makes huge difference!

    Just to play around with it!

    This is my guess how it happened, I'll let Epi get back to tell us though...
