I just had a silly idea to make some simple DM riffs (I'm not much of a guitar player) and use some cajon and congas VST instruments to make a completely "acoustic" death metal song.
It's intresting to have "naked" death metal growls without any other processing than compression and eq. I think it works surprisingly well (and forgives nothing).
Also very untypical for my productions everything has zero reverb or delay. Only comps and eq. My goal was to get it sound like it's played in a quite dead room.
It was fun!
The mid part is a pun and a tribute to a certain song from At the Gates 😀
All the lyrics were improvised while recording.
This song is dedicated to @emplate for his grand love for DM <3
I got no distortion pedal
Not even a Microcube
Still I gotta make some metal - STAT!
I possess a cheap acoustic guitar
Soon I’ll possess your mind and soul
With a ukulele I play a fucking epic solo
Yaaaargh fuck it
35 years of gaming
And I can feel some back pain
But it doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter what gear you got
Death Metal Comes From the Heart
From the heart
Back pain and beer my muse
I scream and growl and pay my dues
To Death Metal
