I can't seem to ever get a good heavy riff or lyrics that have rage in them, or anything like that, while keeping it personal. They always end up depressing. How can I get that rage touch?
with a riff, if you want it make it slow and heavy i'd use drop B, or fast with alot of palm muting like Slayer!, for the lyrics just let your mind flow just dont swear in it, unless the song flows better with it (but it should be avoided at all costs) hope this helps
