Blog » Recording The Morningstar EP: Day 10

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Ey All, I haven’t been keeping up with these posts as well as I like…actually, that’s not true. The reason I haven’t been posting is because I felt kind of stagnant in the recording process. I didn’t want to have a bunch of posts where I have nothing to say. But today, I jumped out […]

Blog » Writing The Morningstar EP: Drink To Your Destruction

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Almost finished with track 4, it’s spastic and diso-y and weird, excellent banana metal.  Elements of the drums are lifted from Deafhheaven’s Daniel Tracy’s style, and it has a lot more guitar motion in it in general (makes sense, it’s a much faster track) and then the old-school dance beat is heavily influenced by (or […]

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Yah, yah… So, this is kind of a catch-all post. I’ve been working on recording “Morningstar, Son Of The Dawn,” writing lyrics and doing test mixes over the past week. Last night was really when Carl and I settled on how we want “Morningstar, Son Of The Dawn” to go. So, today will most likely […]

Blog » Part Writing for The Morningstar EP: As Life Passes You On and Morningstar, Son Of The Dawn

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

As you can see from Joey’s post, we got a lot done today.  I finished the drum part for track four (and if anyone is wondering how I do that, I sit in bed with my computer on my lap) and then finished writing the chords and drums for track two (the first track written by […]

The Morningstar [EP] by The Apache Revolver Yah, yah, metal bros, Today I finished “As Life Passes You On.” Took me a decent chunk of time getting Carl’s arpeggios sorted out, but they actually got easier as it gets nearer to the end of the song. They turn into pretty basic minor arpeggio shapes and […]

Well, so…I said that I was going to finish the guitars today, and I came damn close (It’s all those FUCKING ARPEGGIOS CARL WROTE, DAMN YOU CARL, DAMN YOU ALL TO HELLLLLLL! METALLLLL!). But, mostly I was focused on the mix. For me, it’s very difficult to record if the mix sounds like butt. Reason […]

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Yo, yo, yo… So, I don’t have too much to say. I just figured I’d keep up with posting all the progress, but I have almost all of the guitars recorded for “As Live Passes You On.” It was a little disheartening, ’cause the mix didn’t fit perfectly initially. It’s going to need some work. […]

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Alright, alright, alright… It’s 11:20PM, and I’m laying in bed writing this post. My brain is pretty much fried (in the least drug-induced way). Before I explain what was accomplished, I figured I’d better give you a bit of an update on The Morningstar EP track listing. The track that I’ve been working on a […]

The Morningstar [EP] by The Apache Revolver Ey All, Today I’ve officially finished recording “How You Have Fallen.” In case you were STILL wondering, my guitar strings arrived on Saturday…just in time (sarcasm). I’m always so exhausted after recording (mentally), so I never really feel like these blog posts contain any real, interesting material. But, […]
