Here's another new tune! This one clocks in at almost 6 minutes, making it easily the longest song I've ever done. Add to that a really complicated arrangement, and you've got a song that took way too much time to record. Enjoy!
This was a beast to mix, in part because of the 13 tracks of guitars. I recorded them direct-in, and used my fancy new reamp box to feed it later through my Tube Screamer into the Blackface. I miced it with a 414 and an Apex 205, but I mostly used the feed from the Apex. The bass guitar was also reamped through a massive fuzz box to give it edge, and then I enveloped that track to bring the fuzz in and out as needed. The repeated staccato hits is where it's loudest. There's also a Minimoog bassline in parts, also distorted to hell and back.
