This concept came out of nowhere one night while we were just jamming after a night of practicing other stuff. It was originally quite a bit slower and only an acoustic guitar and a bass. We decided to work it up to a “full” rock recording.
We decided to record it and focus on layering guitars and getting the drums right (which took me a few weeks to figure out). Drums suck to learn to mix. You have a lot of EQing and compressing to do.
I’m quite happy with how it came out! The bass drum has a decent punch, and the snare has a good thwack. The overall mix is large and distorted, but clean.
