Strange Days



 Genre: Progressive Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

Starting out 2007 with a slightly different sound. My first time using BFD for the drums and I did program them based on some odd time signatures I've been working with. Still working on getting the levels and mics right.

Thanks KTB
I'm glad you stopped by. During the Escalation collab you helped me realize that MIDI is my friend. You're songs are always so tight and this time I tried to incorporate more MIDI than I have used in the past.
