I face the same things that I had at the start
Go round and round until fatigue has had the best of me
While I could take down what I faced off before
They rise again and the futility is tiring
Dust off my shoulder, and prepare to commence
Just like before, it never ends, a cycle all-consuming
But then it dawns on me, the end to this curse
Toss down my sword and shield, give up and let them all go through me
Hands up, foot down, I've had about enough
No more, I'm done with playing in the rough
I quit, retire, and off into the hills
I throw the towel, I've had my fill
Like that it ended, but I'm raising my doubts
I come to think that the solution isn't quite what I hoped
But starting up again is not for me now
Upon reflection all my fate decides is where I will go
This track is as angry as it gets. I was initially gonna do a metal track (Or at least a close proximation), but it didn't work out, because i wanted it to go really hard.
And i don't just mean basic distortion, i mean so much it's just pure screech, while still retaining a structure, an arrangement and a melody/chord progression. The distortion was soo much, even my DAW couldn't handle it haha. In the end, it's either too loud, or not loud enough...
As for the melodies, it's mostly chord stabs, a full on progression with a choir, acid synths, riffs and other oddities. Tried to navigate through a really laggy daw for this, there was soo much amps going lol. All in all, it might not be everyone's cup of tea, it was certainly a different and fun way of making things. Hope you enjoy!
