Inappropriate? Hardly. Extremely unlikely otherwise? You betcha!

Ever since I listened to Tristezza, I've held a secret desire to collaborate with Mysti, but truly thought it wouldn't happen. An innocent, yet sincere, comment about how well her voice would do with a symphonic metal song somehow netted her as my partner in this Inappropriate Artists contest. Woohoo!!
smiley smiley smiley

So here's our collab, which came together very quickly, almost effortlessly. A big thank you to Mysti for stepping waaaaaay outside of her normal musical comfort zone, but let me be the first to say: Mysti rocks!! It was an honor to collaborate with you.

Thanks for listening.

Really great song and well done by both of you. As it started to build, I was just hoping to hear Mystified really let loose and rock it out a la Amy Lee, but it never quite happened. Maybe on the next one you guys do smiley I really enjoyed this and commend you both.

This song sounds heavily inspired by Arjen Lucassen's Star One / Ayreon projects (with Mysti no doubt playing the role of Floor Jensen). As soon as those drums kicked in, I knew I was in for something grand. I'm a huge fan of bringing the guitars up to center-stage, with Mysti crooning in the background. I know this project was under a deadline, but I would have (predictably) liked a more epic approach; Mysti has the range to be a true metal vixen, and I feel like she's a bit subdued here. That could just be me asking for Tarja Turunen to come back though, so you'll have to forgive the bias.

Regardless, this is definitely two talents worthy of reckoning coming together to make something magical. Bravo!

Is this the 7-string? It has that throaty, effortlessly heavy sound that I associate with 7-strings...

Great stuff. Really, really great, both of you. I'm going to buck the trend and say that I like the restrained nature of the piece from start to end. It would be easy to imagine a standard build into a heavy, dramatic (yet somehow predictable) section, but this song doesn't need to do that -- it has a nice vibe all of its own, and is thus more unique for it.

Very nice production, by the way. The voice is outstandingly awesome, and the rest of the instruments complement it perfectly. Everything sits together at just the right level; it's possible to appreciate the whole piece at once, rather than having to go digging to make out what a particular instrument is doing. I also like the lead playing a lot -- very elegant and tasteful.

Any chance of another in the future?

(Perhaps some choir rising up during the middle break.

Magical and so damn apropos. Wonderful work from both of you. Sheer talent and beauty! I think you should bring up the volume on mysti's vocals in the heavier 2nd section. I like this very much. Great work!! ~Justin

Even though this is meant to be inappropriate, it actually sounds quite appropriate!

Mysti's vocals and lyrics are great, but to my ears they are a little too loud in the mix...

And the way the heavy guitars come in is just my kind of thing...

Inappropriately appropriate!

What a lovely collaboration. This song features Mysty's voice so nicely and the instrumentation is great. I love distorted guitars with her voice. It's a great fit. The arrangement is well thought out too and well executed by all.

Excellent collab, Bravo! ï

Pros: Great beginning and ending. Lead vocals being an octave off than the melody giving it the appearance as if she (vocalist) is singing another tune, I like the uniqueness about it. Backing vocals sound great, good use of reverb.

This piece has an awesome build and I like how the heavy metal part creeps up then hits you and back down, ingenious I may add! The transitioning works beautifully throughout the entire piece.

Cons: n/a

Suggestions: n/a

Thanks for all the love, folks! This collab was especially fun, being as it was semi-arranged, under a timeline, and my first collab with Mysti. Something about those "first-time" collabs -- they bring out a different kind of energy. I went at the recording of the guitars and the production differently this time, and I think it paid off. Appreciate the comments!

Yes! Thank you all for these lovely comments smiley

I'm grateful that Jay gave me all the freedom I wanted to approach it from 'my angle,' as well as letting me mix the vocals to my liking.
So yes...it's something of a hybrid, genre-wise, as I wasn't trying to sound like someone else.
Sometimes it's just fun to drop your voice in an unexpected soundscape, and see if it works!

Best of all, I had a lot of fun! smiley

Thanks again to Jay and Inappropriate Artists for a chance to get further outside the box!

Wow......wonderful work everyone! An intimate epic. The beginning reminded me of Ennio Morricone's spaghetti western scores, and Jay's trademark guitar holds true. Great to hear Mysti on a track like this as well! Thanks for sharing.

I'd forgotten about the innapropriate collab thread and that I had suggested Mysti singing heavy metal. Imagine my surprise when I found out it actually happened. Myst, I would've loved a little thrashing from you -- totally let loose -- but the result of the collab is an interesting blend of your oohs and his raging guitars. It rather defies a label (metal ambiance?) and is a fascinating idea, this blending of styles into something totally new. Great work both of you!

Igno! Massicely multiplayer Mysti! You're taking me through a foggy, Medieval bog on this one. The fog must be the bkg vox wash, hourglass reference (vs. digital readout) and gothlike shred tone on that guitar. A very pleasant mix, good rising and resting dynamics.
