    Hi all

    Here's a favourite of mine, tracked with the help of
    Hugo Ribeiro (Drums) and Chris Zindros (Fretless Bass)
    whereas I recorded gtrs, bass and vocals.

    Used a Les Paul Custom with emg81 and a Warwick Corvette $$ 5 NT
    through SinMix and G1 Production Kemper profiles for the guitars and through Splattbass profiles for bass.

    More info in the youtube link below :



    Hope you like it
    Than

    KHE... thanks dude, it means a lot that you liked the vocals....I'm quite conscious about my voice and always apprehensive ... I'm glad this one worked out ok vocally. Many thanks for your comment!

    "yet" is the key word here ;)

    For those of you who are thinking of hiring someone to play your drum parts.... not a single quantised note here... it's all Hugo Ribeiro. And I almost forgot... recorded without a click track!

    Great cover, mates!
    The vocals are very charismatic. I've liked kick and snare sounding as well. :kickass:

    This sounds awesome dude, your best yet! I'm glad you got someone to do the fretless bass part, and your vocals sound amazing!

    Thanks man ; true about the IE covers (and 80s-90s metal in general)


    You have no idea how much it means to me to know that you liked the vocals. The kick and snare were replaced with Terry Date samples (which I prefer to the Slate pack).

    Many thanks dude :) We'll be in touch for future songs, you're always among those at the top of my list !

    Cheers colonel, it's one of my favourite IE songs too.

    Lupus1984, glad you liked it. Given the fact that it's cost me, I'd say no, but if there are many requests I'd reconsider.

    Thanks again
    Than
