Re: New original prog rock/metal instrumental from my band
That's gothic! Is it standard tuning, or is the low E really tuned down to a C# or D?
I like the total depth of the low strings on guitar. It's here that I got turned onto 7, 8, and 9 string guitar tones and lowered tuning on those extended range instruments.
You know what would sound great on vocals?...something with a lot of growl if you want to distinguish yourself from a neo-King Crimson type thing. It's not easy and too many otherwise great prog metal bands go too far the other way and sound like extreme metal on vocals. It's a balance that's hard to find without sounding like 1983 or jumping on some flavor of the month djent bandwagon.
