Gargantula! A metal song about catching a spider...
 
Ever been sitting on a summer's night, getting ready for bed but suddenly discovering a wee spider on your ceiling? Do you ever tell people later of your nightmare but over exaggerate the size of the spider? I have written a song about such a moment and called the spider Gargantula, a mix of the words gargantuan and tarantula.

I won't really say I feeeeeeear spiders but I'm not a fan of catching them either.

This song was inspired by a factual and terrifying event I had to endure one night.

Also, I know I'm shit at mixing and mastering and all that but this was made entirely inside Reason (I didn't use POD Farm externally) along with Reason drum kits 2. I played all the guitars and attempted the vocals myself as well :P

I await your scorn :D

See, I don't mind it a wee bit as a wee extra in the background. Maybe I should turn them down a wee bit more? I don't want to get rid of them to be honest lol.

It's sort of like the heavier gruntier vocals when Kamelot use them. I dunno lol.

Thanks for wasting a few minutes of your life (by listening I mean), rvolt lol :D

I just think you need to intensify the drums... and keep the vocals actually.

I hope this doesn't offend you, but it made me laugh. lol

No, no, I'm not offended in the slightest :)

Ach, I dunno how to intensify the drums really. I realise what you mean I just don't have the technical skills I'm afraid.

Should I give Gene Hoglan a call? lol ;)

Nah, don't call Hulk Hogan brother. Hes a wrestler, he doesn't know anything about music. His album was terrible

=)

OK, point taken ;)

Lyrics and vocal style had me smiling. I think you did a good job once the slightly dodgy intro synths were done with. I felt a System of a Down type style. I've heard a lot worse metal band demos ;)
