5 short, metal-tinged tracks recorded with much the same instrumentation, certainly all the same processing (guitars in all tracks all use the same amp sims, same processors on the mixbus etc). There's the occasional middle-eastern influence (cultural, rather than religious).
Parts 4 and 5 are a bit new-agey, not really metal, although they still have Sheddage and the Les Paul vstis.

Enjoy! :tu: :party: ... volume-one

Part 3 was posted a few weeks ago - this is the same track but remixed, most notably the removal of the flanging and the addition of some drum fills.

Cool stuff. Very different from what I'm used to hearing around this place. It does have kind of a mid eastern feel to it in a quirky kind of way. Isn't the East West stuff just great? I have almost everything they've put out, especially the ethnic stuff.

Very well done. :tu:

I enjoyed that a lot - and then went on to re-visit your '1968' set, which I also enjoyed a lot! Lots of nice stuff happening :)
