Nausea (Prog Metal)

Mix number 1
http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_3773027
Before anyone gets the idea that i'm off to slash my wrists, the words were inspired by Nausea (JP Sartre). It is a shameless imitation of Porcupine Tree/Riverside/Pink Floyd. I hope haven't borrowed too much. Pete

EDIT - Mix number 2

EDIT - Mix number 3

This might be the final mix but maybe one more if a new drum part is done. I changed the bass, added some extra backing vocals, changed the vocal and drum mix and tweaked a bit of guitar.

Man I really, really like this one Pete. Guitar sound(s) are great as always. It sounds like you still have more plans for this one so I'm looking forward to the finished product. One quick suggestion maybe would be a deeper Nick Mason type kit

Regards,
Tony

Cool

Pete, if this is a first mix I can't wait to hear the final version. I'm definately hearing a Floyd influence and Tony's suggestion of a Nick Mason kit is bang on. I'm also hearing Tool in there somehow

For a man that reckons he can't sing your voice works really well with this.

Top stuff mate.

Mark

yup lyrics are great! Nice tune overall, sounds pretty much done to me. Definately hear Floyd in there but its all good, its not over the top and still original

Really like the bass tone on this track. Vocals have the perfect amount of reverb/delay on them. Has some epic moments throughout. I thought the mix was spot on.

Wowsy, wow Pete,

Fooking nice track!! Your guitar sounds awesome and the journey through this song was a wonderful trip. I think your voice suits this style very well, but I did feel that you could do more with it. At times the pitch is a little out but that's okay when the vox is processed a little more. It's really when your voice has less fx's that I think pitch becomes more obvious. I thought you could add some harmonies to the lead vox as well. That would add a nice dimension to the tune.

This really is going to be awesome after you've done all your tweaking - I can't wait!!

Chris

Hi Pete,

really like this alot...i can hear that its a balancing act, you dont make it esay on yourself do you ?!!
nice guitar work as usual and if i can offer any advice it would be to get those vocals up there a bit more ( easier said than done i know )...and by that i think i mean not in volume just punchyness ( ooh a new word ). hope that makes sense.

top work...lets see where you get with this one, it'll be interesting.

regards
danni

ps..i remembered why i don't have a chromatic harp when i saw the prices...but hey i gotta have one... so when i got it home it appeared i had visited the wrong "market stall" and found myself trying to play a stick of rather floppy rhubarb...it was in the key of G though ...but made no sound
tee hee

Hi Danni, thanks for the feedback. I will increase the volume on the chorus bits and I will add a bit more grit (scream unit) to the louder bits... I did want to have a contrast between the sections... So I'll see how that goes.....

Regards
Pete

ps Crumble?
