I thought that Top Kill (BP's failed plan to stop the oil leak) sounded like a good industrial song. So I wrote one..
It, naturally, took a few tries and wasn't entirely successful. :D
I haven't done much recording in years. So there was a bit of re-learning. I need to borrow or buy a proper vocal mic so I can blame my studio technique instead of the microphone if I don't like the way things sound.
I used my fancy new bass guitar instead of samples. And the samples I did use are much higher quality than I was using before. Like the multisampled drums that come with the basic IK Multimedia SampleTank set. In fact, the basis for the tone came from the "Boom Baby" preset.
I tried to use some older CDs dating back from before the days of the loudness war as a sonic reference for how "loud" it should sound. Even so, I ended up using a bit of brick-wall limiting.
