Hi there people, as I said in my last post long before this one: Long time no see.
I am sure there are a lot of new members here and that is cool, but I hope some of the old ones are still here too.
I have a "new" song that I hope to finish the upcoming weekend and I would love some input on it as it stands this far from all you good people.
Both on sound and lyrics.
This one took a looong time to finish.
I started it in 2009 and finished composing the last part and words 2 weeks ago.
So I've been through C4 to C7 on this. Starting doing it in C4 32 bit and migrated the project to 64 bit into C6.
Now I am finishing it in C7 64.
0,00 to 2,25 was done in 2009
2,25 to 3,50 (backing and vocals) was done in 2011 or so.
The lead was done just days ago
3.50 and out was done the last few weeks.
Same with the lyric.
It is a dual song between me and Runa, meaning we sing most everything at the same time in octaves. Not a usual way of doing vocals but I liked the principle
I want to be painstakingly honest on this song: the idea came to me after hearing Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hells then new album "the devil that you know"
I've always loved Black Sabbath with Dio on vocals and as I heard "atom & evil" (opening song on "the devil that you know") I just knew I had to at least try to write something like it.
And this song is it, hehe
The lyric is meant to be Black Sabbath/Heaven & Hell like but with a positive message.
Do not know if I succeeded, I'd really love some input on this.
I'll post the lyric in the post after this.
Also: I only call it BS clone now, does any of you have a good title for me?
Obviously the vocals are not quite there yet, but what do you think of the principle of doing a song this way?
Meaning: octaves more or less through the whole song?
I personally like it but I am somewhat biased, so it would be good to know what you people think about this.
We will fix all that we can on vocals and mix this weekend, so any tips before that would come in handy

And please, if nothing else: help me with the song title.
All the best, Kim
