Nice! Reminds me a bit of early Darkthrone but with more technical playing. Pretty natural drum sounds which is cool, I kinda hate the modern over produced metal drum sound.
Guitars - Subtractor? Wow that's really well done. I would not have guessed honestly.

Thx! I too am not a friend of modern metal drum sounds. I think a lot is done with drum plugins and sample replacement. That's why i even didn't remove the squeeking of the drum stool and things like that.

You managed to dial in some convincing guitars with Subtractor. It definitely helped that you played or programmed like a guitar. I doubt many would be able to tell it wasn't a guitar if you didn't mention it. I've never been big on this genre although it's been growing on me lately. Really nice work overall.

Any plans for more than just one song?

Thx! It's programmed like guitarists who play sloppy on purpose because it suits the ugliness of the genre. Lot of notes spilling into each other, occasionally hitting non fretted strings and "accidental" pitch bends when changing frets.

It's a 10 song album, the fifth already ;)

Yes the guitar sound is very convincing. Every element sounds perfect for this type of music. It's raw/messy yet clear mix wise, which is worth a compliment. I think you nailed that balance.
Good work on this tune! :thumbs_up:
