For this week's challenge submission, I recorded my first death metal vocals in about 10 years. Compared to Drew, my vocal "technique" is definitely more of the self-destructive, blood-spitting kind, but to my surprise, the growls turned out better than I expected. Had a lot of fun putting this one together!

Man, those Bass drops are sick as fuck! Sounds killer here. :chef I may have to go all Skrillex on a submission sometime. :LOL:

Dug the heavily gated vibe in a few spots, too. You and your tracks are super consistent in the vibe and style
you are bringing. Seems like one of the hardest things to achieve, too. Can tell you know what you are doing
and have a vision for your music. :beer
