yeah honestly... the whole "Hessian" thing is ridiculous... but outside of that I dig the direction its going. Although one thing I like about UG more is talking about guitar stuff obviously.

So how does that work? They send you a demo in exchange for you posting a review somewhere??

None other than Absu are coming here on the 9th of March. Behexen and The Devil's Blood were to be the supporters, and holy fuck. The Devil's Blood just got replaced with Primordial.


I must get there. I must.

Definitely! Had the pleasure of seeing them live twice in a week, and both times they slaughtered the stage. I'm a bit cold towards their studio stuff, but live they were extremely impressive.

i haven't played my instrument seriously in a long time. no metronome or technique practice, barely any theory study, no full recordings, just some random riff writing, hardly anything that could be called a composition. i don't even break out my good amp or my nice guitar when i play anymore.

whenever i try composing, i never think its any good and end up scrapping it before the idea has been fully explored. my best moments come in spontaneity when i feel melancholic or lonely. I can sit in the dark with a guitar for an hour fully developing ideas in improvisation, but i don't feel like stopping to remember, write down or record all the subtleties and variations and nuances... the task takes too much and ruins my moment of catharsis

i'm becoming increasingly frustrated at my inability to convey certain emotions in my compositions... i feel like the formality of sitting down and composing doesn't capture my most raw, creative paradigms

when i actually write things down, my songs end up just being riff 1, riff 2, riff 3, riff 4, riff 5, all simply repeating in even times, no creative arrangements or transitions or fully fleshed out ideas

tonight i will attempt to start an idea i've had for an album for some time... it will be a cold, melancholic black metal record. seemingly minimalistic and trance like, subtle variations creeping into the listener's mind as the songs progress... low fi synths playing just one long quiet note at a time to add a razor like edge in parts or to provide a tranquil 'home note' underneath a cacophony of dissonance... sparse vocals recorded with 100% commitment, absolute intensity and emotion in the voice... field recordings of my surroundings between each long track..

i feel like i need to write this album to end a chapter in my life. it's going to be like climbing a mountain for me...

where are you right now? what space does your mind occupy?

You sound like youve got a real vision for your project, cant wait to hear it man.

For me, I used to just jam with some friends from high school. We mostly got nothing done and had some all over the place ideas. Only recently did we start seriously writing with a goal (record a demo) and vision in mind. We write a sort of melodic hardcore type of thing, with some metal, prog, and jazz (not so much in writing or chord progressions, my bassist is just a sick sax player when hes drunk) sounds. I think this so far has worked the best for us, and gave me a lot of motivation and inspiration for songwriting. Ive tried out some grindcore and death metal with these guys before (theyre all metalheads to some degree lol), but it just didnt work out, drummer hasnt got the technique and bassist listens to too much Mr bungle lol

I can relate somewhat, there was a pretty huge chunk of my guitar playing career where I was alright at coming up with one or two ideas, but stringing them together into a coherent whole never seemed to happen, so I just ended up scrapping everything. It wasn't until about a year or so ago that I realised the problem was I was always just trying to go for what felt right coming next and ending up with a tangled mess of riffs that never made sense. So I thought hey, why not try writing something with a couple of verses, a couple of choruses and a bridge somewhere in between - it worked for a huge number of the bands I listen to anyway. I'm still horrible in terms of productivity but it's slightly more an issue on the getting musicians together to play shit side now than it used to be. I have a retro doom band together at the moment and we'd plan to get together to write stuff last week but then the snowocalypse hit. Should be getting together for a few hours at the end of February though.

Right now I'm actually having fun working through Schoenberg's Fundamentals of Musical Composition. It's fascinating because the concept of form in classical music is a lot more precise than the broad sectional arrangements of pop music, I'm like five chapters in with the excercises and I've still only worked up to composing eight bar sections. But I can hear everything I write in full instantly afterwards by playing it myself on the piano which is a lot more satisfying than just hearing it in a guitar pro/tuxguitar file. My (modest!) end goal at the moment is to write a Sonata that quotes significantly from John Arch's vocal melodies from TSW/ATG just because I can.
