the songs are somewhat connected to blood lyrically (the first one especially). if anyone is into weird, experimental metal, then this might be your bag. if not? just ignore it. my little tribute to a game i've loved for more than 20 years.

This is very interesting, I'm digging the vibe and production. Very crispy and smooth at the same time. Didn't care much for the solo at the end of "Blood" but the laugh sample fit very well. I liked the other song better.

Good job, seven out of ten severed hands.

Yeah, punk really does nothing for me. I like dissonance and chaotic juxtapositions of major over minor, especially when it is done in a rhythmically disjointed fashion like the solo starting at around 3 minutes:

That's what your solo reminded me of, but felt too neatly tied up and maybe too happy sounding for my taste. It really comes down to personal taste - I can hear that the solo fits very well for what it is.

to me it's "happy" the same way that setting cultists on fire makes me happy, you know? i like a lot of noise rock and hardcore punk too i guess. i try to meld things that don't necessarily go together.

oh, and i definitely dig meshuggah! it's funny you'd link that track. i've been on a huge nothing kick lately.

have you heard neurosis? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J5U6vLSwrQ

they started out as a hardcore punk band. one of my all time favs.

I understand the aesthetic, it just rubs me the wrong way. Punk/hardcore are the only genres I actively avoid, and also things that have "core" in the name.

I think I was introduced to Neurosis before as well. I can dig that, the slower riffs have a very "stoner" feel which I like.
