nice, id like to catch karnivool. I only have one album, sound awake, and its really badass. its really addicting too. monuments are pretty sick live. they were tight as a bitch when they opened for DTB.

and yeah stig that looks really good! I also commented in that thread. you work quickly! often times you see people do little bits here and there on their builds. good job man

Aw shit I'd live to see Monuments again. Super awesome show opening for Scale the Summit. They should have been higher up in the setlist. And Karnivool! I love Themata and Sound Awake. They are due for another states tour. It's been too long.

Thanks guys. I'm definitely more inclined to play on it now that it's more to my liking aesthetically and tonally. I'll get a small demo recorded or something soon. I have school and work all week though.

If you wanna hear the VH though I posted a video in the "Original Recordings" subforum for Ryan Bruce's #RiffsAndBeards2 contest. Lemme know what you think :P

Think of music as being melody, harmony and rhythm. Different styles of music put more or less emphasis on each portion. Personally I think that when you're playing heavier music you're basically trading melody for rhythm and harmony. So if you're writing music that is less melodic, it's because you're making space for more interesting rhythms(eg, Meshuggah) or more interesting harmony (eg, Eric Whitacre).

Currently your track has a few little interesting syncopations that's really all it brings to the table. Perhaps you could add an ambient track to fill out the harmony or mix up the rhythms a little more? Maybe even just come up with a lead melody to go over the main riff?

Hope that helps, thanks for taking the criticism in the spirit it was meant.


The tracks not complete yet. I sort of built up from beginning to end, starting which a very typical metal style riff, and changing things around. The big just after the end of this track has a heavy rhythm with an 8th note pattern over it which in places is playing a typical melody over rhythm thing, but in places the basic palm muted pedal point riff changes to a different 8th note pattern/term picking pattern which harmonizes with the melody. Its taking me a bit of time to learn well enough to play precisely though
