Yes, they do sound different. At first I was trying to figure out what was with the singer... then, I looked and saw Brazil! I assume these guys are Brazilian?
The guitars are tight, the picking as well. A lot of gating on them?
hummmm, not much gating on the guitar as far as I remember... just cleaning the noises on silent parts...
the guitar player is a picking freak thumbsup for sure.
the first recording was a Laney VH100 if I'm not mistaken.
the second one is a mix of Dual Recto, JCM 800 and Triaxis+JCM 800 power.
kick and snare sound "sampled" because that's what I was going for.
99% of the metal mixes today sound sampled... so I wanted the guys to "sound like everybody else" in those 2 particular songs (the new recorded ones), 'cause we already have 8 other songs that sounds organic on the drums...
Listening to the 1st track: I really like the music - very different from the standard metal assembly. Very cool drumming. Did the drummer play all the parts that cleanly, or were there a lot of corrections and mapping? Great playing by everybody!
It kind of makes me think of Mr. Bungle in terms of the stylistic mash-ups and comical jumps into video game land. I'm very impressed! Plus we get to hear some well played Brazilian forms!
The only thing I don't like is cookie monster. I never liked that kind of vocal from the 1st time I heard it. Can't wait til it dies! If everybody could sing like Dave Mustaine, it'd work for me.
