This is a much heavier song than you have heard before from me.

I tried to sonically capture the chaos and finality of that day when every knee will bow and every tongue confess . . .

JUDGMENT DAY

I replaced the rhythm guitar track using my 69 Les Paul Recorder . .

Had my brother Eric lay down some Rhythm tracks and Lead tracks . . .
Had Rob lay some Vocal tracks . .

I used style _MTL_120.STY Hvy Mtl, w/ met.bass (basically it is just bass and drums from Biab in this recording)

blessings!

Hi Even If
I have not had the pleasure of hearing your music before. It is great to hear some new talent on the forum.
You song really woke me up. What a fantastic production. You have definitely captured the chaos that will happen on that day.

interesting.... yup... I think you nailed the thing you were going for..... including the brittleness on the vox....and the mix. Glass shattering if it's cranked up.

I wrote a "judgement day is coming" song back in 2008..... End of the Line... it's on page 3 of my songs on my wen site.... you might enjoy it. Slightly more melodic than your song. Full frontal assault with cranked guitars... lots of twin action. I never posted that song here because IIRC, it was slightly before I started using BB.

After listening through a bunch of your songs, I have to say you have a great sound! very professional change-ups that keep the songs interesting and your vocals are distinctive... really top notch in every way! You have some really original compositions, and they flow very well, like one of those albums that all of the songs are everybody's favorite.

Your harmonies and production are also very good in my opinion... you have what I'd call a live sound, but with all the production quality of studio music.

Regarding this particular song, maybe my age predisposes me to hear it in a way that is contrary to your intent. I GET your intent, and I think you puled it off... but I've heard so much metal that was Anti-Christian that its hard for me to hear metal as a CC genre.

Your guitar work is very good, not only in terms of execution but also in terms of great use of effects... and with none of the muddiness that usually accompanies heavy use of effects.

And I especially like the fact that you seem to be pursuing your music as a ministry... good luck to that end!

Thanks Pat!

You wrote a very encouraging post . . .

It was once said, "Music is organized sound, made by man, to evoke a feeling"

The text of our Lord has many different stories and many different types of feelings to evoke . . .

I have almost completed scratch tracks for 3 albums.

I have tried to capture many different stories and feelings using: blues, metal, rock, ballads, swing, klezmer, boomchick, country, some light funk, light Jazz, waltz, folk, alternative, a Symphonic poem and an orchestra piece I have written.

Hard to find people that want to make music outside of a specific genre so it is very slow going . . .

You comment helps with the frustration smile

Dont get a lot of this genre on the forum. there is an obvious Guns n roses tone to this work.
Nicely done. Looking forward to hearing more.

WOW! This blew me right out of my chair! Outstanding vocals, lyrics, super backing tracks along with some fantastic guitar work.

As already been said lots of distorted guitar with effects but the song is crystal clear. Super job on the mix!

Loved the ending!

I felt it was a little soft, and you were holding back. Maybe you could turn the Marshall Stack up a little louder, and use a Rat?

No, just kidding!!!!

Heavy head banging apocalyptic messaging there brohemus!!!

An outstanding presentation...

This style is about as far away from what I usually listen to as possible so I'm really under-qualified when it comes to commenting. That being said, the production and the performances are fantastic and reminded me of the energy and power of an erupting volcano. There is no doubt whatsoever that you've wholeheartedly captured exactly what you set out to accomplish.

As I said... an outstanding presentation.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® 2019 on a USB 3.0 Hard Drive - Speed Thrills!

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)
Upgrade from Version 2017 or earlier or crossgrade: [color:#FF0000]$169[/color] (reg: $299)

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK+ $569
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$179[/color] (reg: $379)
Upgrade from Version 2017 or earlier or crossgrade: [color:#FF0000]$199[/color] (reg: $399)
Note: The difference between the UltraPAK and the UltraPAK+ is that the MIDI Songs & Lessons PAK is included in the UltraPAK+ package.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
