Here’s a little video I made. I wanted something with my band logo and plenty of fire. Watch the beginning where I appear out of the blackness in a ball of fire. My greenscreen setup isn’t the best, but it was pretty good for free tools. Still trying to sell some music so I can do the really cool shit. Click on the Left of Deth Music Link to pick up a track or two if you think it’s cool.
This is just a little jam session I put together. I didn’t mix it down or anything, but I figured it was OK for a garage quality sound. Effects in this one are just distortion and wah really but it turned out pretty good. I’m thinking about doing some stuff with more reverb and maybe some phasers or compressors, and I might figure out a way to get Delay into some of my stuff. Delay is kind of tough though unless you got a band to play accompany guitar, it’s really more of a lead. I’m sure I’ll figure something out though.
For the video, I used Windows Movie maker, which is pretty easy to use and I like it because it’s free. I tried to add two effects to the video, but appeartly you can only do one, even if you mix the first vid, then apply the effect to the already worked movie. Pretty dissapointing, but what do you want for free right?!
I might get a trial of Vegas or some Muvee software for the next video, and I’ve been learning how to use the green screen, so I’m looking forward to more. It’s pretty fun. 🙂
This is a song me and the guys recorded for Chaotic Tendancies, since we never released an album I figured I’d put this on the Left Of Deth album. This was recorded in 1998 or 1999 while we were playing around garages in Port Huron. We played this song at a few gigs but mostly just covered Nirvana, since it was popular at the time.
Originally, this song is about our guitarists sister, who was like one of our groupies. It was our attempt, as a band, to make fun of her. Anyways, people liked it and we played several versions of this songs in the years that followed until the band broke up. This songs on Guitars on Fire, which is available in the webstore link on this page.
Metal Sparrows, the first guitar piece from LeftofDeth’s album Guitars on Fire.
“Basically, I just wanted a heavy sounding sound, something with a lot of grit with a cool introduction, so I made this song. Maybe I’ll use it with a drum or bass line in the future but I don’t really have any sort of “Specific” plans other than to just put this on the blog. I just think it’s cool, it’s kind of dark and has a lot of attitude but isn’t over the top and depressing. Just heavy, that’s what I was going for. ” ~ Jeremy Danger
This is my first attempt at mixing stuff for Left of Deth. I’m sure as time progresses I’ll get better at the whole thing but I just wanted to make something that would sound cool and have that Live feel to it. There’s actually quite a few different guitar tricks that I used here. Double stops and half-step chopping and some over-wah are just a few of the thingst that I wanted to incorporate into the song. One of these days, I AM going to figure out how to record my electric drums into the whole mix but that quest is far from over at this point.
Guitar Riff 1 from The Band. Just some easy scale excersise that I thought sounded cool really. I didn’t upload this to youtube to make me more popular or anything. I just did it because I thought it sounded cool. There will be lots more from here on out. I can guarentee that 4-sho. I don’t know. I just like making the guitar sound cool. I think that’s what really important. Anyways, I made and uploaded this video to youtube. Did the artwork on it, which I’m pretty proud of. Rock and Roll!!!!!!!!!!!
