My Shameless Insanity (a trio collab)



 Genre: Heavy Metal

Get Flash to see this player.

Symphonic metal, with the full choir treatment!

My first collab with two very talented artists from across the pond. Art literally transformed a straightforward metal riffing extravaganza into this lush tune, and Paul added the oh-so-necessary incindiary lead guitar work.

Thanks for listening!

Art's lyrics for the choir added another dimension to this song. He educated me on the fact that the words choirs sing aren't as important as the emotion they convey, and they're typically sung in Latin. I think it's cool that there's another facet of this song that can be found by following these lyrics:

I journey into the night alone
The moonlight settles my spirit and soul.
As I rest
Dreams come to truth.
The cold whispers of wind echoes in my mind
I am born into this new found discovery.
Blood and ashes take my life away from me
A god of destruction have I become
Dark desires of power in my kingdom
I ascend to death eternal
Angels fall, fall from grace

The glorious king of my fathers land
Has corrupted all that was pure by his evil hand.
Once a man of integrity
He has become our enemy
Can't you see?
Come to me my hopeful dreamer
I will grant all you desire

My shameless insanity.

I think this is really brilliant the mix creation everything I am absolutely
in awe of this great masterpiece.

Your pic looks really frightening fits the music perfectly.

Appreciate the comments! This was indeed a monster. Nearly 60 tracks, dozens of mixes over months, and lots and lots and LOTS of email swaps between Art, Paul and myself.
This is actually a remixed version of our original, and I think it's much better. The rhythm guitars were re-recorded for better tone and better meshing with the other tracks. Thanks for listening.

nice mix
of synth and real instruments. I agree with Allen about the huge feel this has. The kick drum really stands out to me.

Cool track
