    [reposted] Sabbath cover tune

    Sign in to disable this ad
    sorry..I'm too lazy to do another cover at this point, but I thought I'd repost this one I did of bsabbath's last summer. I did remix it and now the vocals are skewed over to the left, but at least they are louder!

    what a difference

    my version at my nowhere page at:
    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/?aid=1322/album43

    and sammy's original version at his nowhere site:

    oh well...I wanted to do another one...but...aah...aa...aah
    (I lost my homework, teacher...I think my dawg ate it)

    I remember this one well, since I tried playing a little solo on top of it.

    You sound a bit like that "it's a wonderful world".. what was that guy? Good job. I don't think the song needs such angry vocals I did enjoy the "same fucking place" scream, though. I'm not too keen on the drumbeat either. I mean, the sounds are great, but this drumbeat makes the song sound too fast to me. I liked the laidback feel of the original more, but I guess I always like the original more. (and *I'm* the one making covers all the time damn) Not to say your version is bad. Maybe I have to get used to it. I feel a bit confused about myself on this one. On the other hand, I'd like it to sound more like the original, but then again, 100% faithful covers aren't that interesting to hear usually. All the little spices you put there in the background work well. It's just the vocal style and drums that don't sit that well here IMO, but I think have the original song is too strongly in my head...

    Well that was interesting. From my short tenure here I would say you captured the B.Sabbath feel quite well. Mix sounded great to me.

    Nice work

    nice that I got 3 responses.
    I guess if I did a new tune and not a remix, I might have gotten more. (4?... 5?)

    Maybe I need to comment more on other peoples shit

    I have been slack in the last week or so... oh well... that's what I've been told.. "hey mix...your critiques aren't what they used to be". Damn right they're not.

    I think I'll go hang out in the mic forum and cause some shit. W.I.S.C. likes me now, and DavidK hasn't chewed my ass out in a while...so this doesn't feel like the 'right' place for now!

    btw...to be consistant with this post, I wiped this song off my hardrive and have no plans to change it. So ...comments are moot.

    just wanted to vent. Now...everybody, go back home. Clear the area.

    mix, mix, mix... What are we going to do with you?!

    Are you just looking to start a flame war? You know you've come to the right place...


    o.k. I'll be serious now.. I remeber when you posted this the first time while my thread of the original was still active.. It was strange because the song was about a week old before it was covered, and there were 2 threads going about it.. Yours and mine... To be honest, I wasn't crazy about it at first because I was still settling in to my version.. It was still a baby when you defiled it..

    I have listened to it more and more and have grown to like most of it a lot.. especially the way the music sounds on the choruses, and that bit @1:40 with the drums.. and the break @2:10..

    I still hear the timing problems, but it bothers me less now.. I think it's great that you sang it even more desperate sounding than I did.. The vocals are very much a preference thing..

    If you could be objective and listen to this as someone who was not involved with it, what do you think you would say about the vocals when comparing it to the original? I bet you might have some negative things to say..

    Truth be known, I like it much more than I did when I first spun it.. It's amazing that someone I never met is covering a tune I wrote while sitting on the toilet..

    thanks again for this..


    After I post fenderlikingoods cover today, I will finish a cover of your 'don't follow.' I'll probably have that ready to post next weekend.. It's a tough one to have picked for me, but I 'modified' it!



    Now get the hell back to starting trouble!!! Just pick a member and start a flame war!

    You'll be glad you did!

    Mixmkr,
    I owe you an apology. It's disappointing to work your ass off on something, and then feel like nobody noticed. I remember replying to this when you first posted it. I thought it was a great cover. You took Sammy's idea one step (or more) darker. Didn't think that was possible! Nice stuff!

    Interesting. I think you really caught the "Sabbath" vibe quite well. It has that darkness to it.

    The singing on it is definitely a preference thing, but I thought it worked in this cover because it fit the mood of the music. My only complaint might be the drums...I liked the actual beats but the actual drum sound didn't do it for me, but again that is a preference thing. I don't know, maybe they need some reverb or something... but then what do I know ...

    I love the intro and all the sounds you packed in there and this sounded like a big production, which I like!
