Well, I got new a Spector 6 string bass the other day, and I decided to make up a demo of it real quick, and did a weird ambient/metal D'n'B song.

I put it together in about one hour, so theres a few mistakes, and what-not, but it all bass and drums, even the little solo thingie.

Let me know what you think, and link to songs you want critiqued.

wow ok so the first thing I think of is Godflesh. Really pounding drums and a thick bass sound. If you wanted to develop the song a bit more you could maybe speed up the rhythm to double time or have some more of that strange sounding soloing. The bass playing sounds really natural and also kinda ominous and I think the little solo thing definitely helps the song along. Overall a cool track, would appreciate it if you checked out my track:

Not really DnB; if you're going for that, you'll want to make the drumbeat a lot more complex and "busy". Still, it is what it is, and it is a neat demo. The bass tone is killer; it carries the song on it's own, which is impressive.
Cheers.

It seems a bit repetitive and I think there might be a bit too much reverb going on, but it sounds really cool. I'd like to hear more!

holy shit man love the bass tone!
although i drum'n'bass usually refers to the electronic/dance music style, i understand where your title comes from, although its quite misleading.
however, i totally enjoyed the track, and this is definitely one of the best bass-guitar lead songs ive ever heard- mainly because of the precision and tone of the bass (i hate overly distorted or boomy bass guitars, whereas this recording is ear sex )

anyways, good luck in the future with your new bass

Thanks! I didnt even think the bass tone was that great, all it is a tube comp + chorus, and the strings were brand spankin' new. The funny thing is that the lead part is overly distorted. On my Line 6 M9, I use the "Line 6 Distortion" box on that, and the gain is nearly maxed, lol. But yeah, I dont care much for distorted bass 99% of the time, but I actually like how it sounded. Anyway, Ryan Martinie is my biggest influence, and it was all done finger style.

Hey there!

Didnt hear too much of DnB influence or the drums would have been way faster so I was like woah?

Got some primus feeling at the beginning but then I started to think it feels more like rob zombie's stuff without the guitar.

That guitar that comes in could have came alot sooner this seemed pretty stretched and got a bit repetitive.

But the tune is pretty cool polish it up and give us a full product!

some timing issues at the beginning but other than that pretty awesome

erm
this isn't even close to dnb.
only thing that's somewhat metally is the double-drum stuff.

sounds neat nonetheless.
