In brief: enter the darkly festive world of Eido and Maple, but beware... You may not be the same again...

Waffly version: It's that time of year again... I've actually been hard at work on an album this year, which is close to being ready but not quite there yet, which goes some way to explaining why haven't uploaded anything since last Christmas. But I didn't want to let a whole year go by without any apparent activity at all, so I decided to throw this together very quickly just for giggles. Originally I was going to try a different song, but then I heard herrsolera's excellent Christmas medley, which amongst other things included the tune I was going to use, and decided not to compete with him.

The track was mostly done when my girlfriend Maple came along to listen to it and started pointing out problematic areas in the mix. This developed into a kind of 'producer' role, with Maple also adding the final layer in the last section, so we're uploading this as a collaboration.

Enjoy, everyone, and Merry Christmas!

-Eido and Maple

Nice drumverb.. I here it.... Hell O Santa claus... Wheres my knife.... I know their must be a guitar in here... although... wait... Very nice Gong..

Drums sound great... O my... .headbangers Ball.... THE MEMORIES...

What kind of compression do you guys use... its so nice and loud and clear..

The drums sound great, and are mixed O so well... With more time and interest.. might try it..

I have a strat... I cant play it.. I play synth guitar.. I want (badly) the freedom to play it.. MOre and more.. as I listen to stuff like this... I think the cool sounds of the guitar are just getting more and more refined, by talented people , as I can hear here... The different sounds and styles.. So cool... I just have to keep the faith..

Great....

Hehe.....

If Carlsberg did Christmas tunes....

Its like something you would like to hear as you go mental in a shopping mall with a sack and a baseball bat. I could easily do my Chrimbo shoplifting to the strains of Eido and Maple's festive Metal madness!!

Ha! What a phenomenal, rocking tune - a true mixture of Christmas and metal, done with energy, passion, and best of all, real guitars. I love the ominous beginning - it gave me the impression that you were going to give Christmas a sinister turn, as if the ghost of Christmas Yet to Come were giving us his own rendition of the holiday season.

Did you program the drums yourself (noticing the 'No Loops' specification)? If so, they're powerful and very well-arranged. Since I am such a huge fan of "We Wish You a Metal Christmas" and this current song, then I'd be very interested in hearing what you could do with the original song you were planning on composing - all notions of competition or limelight be damned!

Again, great song, going into heavy rotation. 'Tis the season!

Yup, the drums are all original this time around. (Last time I threw down some stock EZDrummer grooves to get the job done as quickly as possible.)

Many thanks, all!

adamel Artist That was awesome, a very rocking track I must admit. The rhythm guitars sounded great and the lead tone you used is really cool. What a great example of Christmas metal smiley

very nice, just a small critique that (i dont know which guitar) i think its the bass is a bit too loud and is distorting everything out. obviously i could just turn down the volume, but i like it loud! other than that very nice. good reverb too

Thanks for the comment, BladeKemp. Is anyone else noticing this? I always have problems with bass -- most of the playback options I have available to me either have superb bass response (and don't tend to distort no matter what I throw at it) or none whatsoever... Guess I should've used the PC speakers as well.

It sounds quite good Eido, very "helly" one! smiley Regarding the bass probably I'd like a more strong presence, something hitting your stomach without distorcing of course, this is a bit too gentle to my ears maybe but anyway the global thing sounds absolutely balanced and effective! smiley

I've listened to this on my near fields only so far. Sounds great to me there. Yeah, I know, they can handle most any bass thrown at them...I'll put this on my iPod and listen today in the car (which has a propensity to not handle all the bass I throw at it). I'll report back later.

Hmm. Too much bass says BladeKemp, not enough bass says Lupi. What's a guy to do? smiley

Okay, I listened to this in my car (decent stock system), which can get bass overwhelm, especially in the really low low frequencies. Your tune sounded GREAT! Pumped up the volume, still sounded great! (I have both iPod and car stereo set to flat EQ.)

Hey Ya'll,

I normally listen through headphones anyway, but actually listened through my speakers as well. When a tune sounds equally as good using both methods, it's a rap. Great piece!

To my ears the bass could be louder(and deeper) and the guitars less sharp,for a warmer more balanced sound? great track smiley Play on as many systems as poss car stereos ect as most listeners don`t have studio monitors!!!!!
