Mayhem- "Freezing Moon" on guitar Having a shit day, so I'm going to vibe with Euronymous for a bit.

Mayhem's 'Funeral Fog' just started learning this today.

Slayer's 'Spill the Blood' and I'm turning it into a doom metal cover. playing in C# standard and slower.

I've been playing The Haunting (Testament), trying to iron out some of my errors on Through the Fire and the Flames (Dragonforce) and I just roughly learned the solo in Bat Country (Avenged Sevenfold). I've also been working on a new solo (no particular song in mind for it at the moment but I might slip it into something in the future).

Done with 'Cold Heart Forged In Hell' by Anata and I plan to never, ever, play it again. God damn that was frustrating. Now though 'Shores In Flames' by Bathory.

Good stuff!!! That's awesome man.

 

 

 

This is all of the songs that I've been playing lately on guitar and a little on bass:

Just had a little moment. There's a picking pattern in 'Shores In Flames' which actually works brilliantly with a riff I've been grappling with for six months or so. Had no idea how to move it from clean to heavy and everything I had tried seemed forced. Bringing that pattern into the mix firstly adds more variety to the initial riff but also solves the transition problem I had.

Have way more time for guitar in trimester 3

Cover songs I'm currently playing

Deicide: Repent to Die

Sepultura: Arise

Slayer: Raining Blood (Playing guitar and vocals with band for a cover)

Judas Priest: Screaming for Vengeance

Lamb of God: Laid to Rest

(Relearning) Megadeth: Hangar 18 

Cannibal Corpse: Covered with Sores

Gorguts: La vie est Prelude

Yngwie Malmsteem: Blackstar (not really started this one yet)

Also got a song for a band around 80% written (needs some basslines, solos, lyrics and maybe another riff to make the structure less boring).

Also working on a solo for the Jared Dines thing (about 90% written, needs to be recorded).

'Starbreaker' by Judas Priest. Just 17 days to put the finishing touches on this ahead of actually playing it live.

Good luck. You're pretty ahead of schedule.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
