Caustic 3 does METAL! "Stolen F-22"

OK, so I went & did something outside my musical comfort zone (electronic industrial/ breakbeat)- and created a metal track using Caustic.  It's my first attempt at creating this kind of music digitally & hope it holds up.  I've been a guitarist since I was a kid, with my greatest metal influence coming from bands like Pantera, White Zombie, Testament, Corrosion of Conformity, Slayer, Iron Maiden & Judas Priest.

 

All guitars are synth, which made for a pretty interesting task creating the long, multi-layered guitar solo!

 

Here is "Stolen F-22"

YESSSS!! Rockin! Man, it really takes off when the solo section kicks in! Love the palm mute sound - half palm mute, half shotgun blast! J../

Getting the proper "palm mute

Getting the proper "palm mute" was a bitch!  BigBeard Audio had a good muted string preset for the PCM but it wasn't quite "metal" enough.  I tweaked it & tweaked it, used heavy Bitcrusher effect & ran it through a parametric EQ until it had a nice chunge-y quality that played well against the open power chord guitar track

Thanks!  I'm going to have to

Thanks!  I'm going to have to give Godflesh another listen.  It's been so many years since I've heard, I just remember liking it.

 

Back in the stone age of Caustic 1, I tried putting together a version of Pantera's Cowboys from Hell using bassline synths as rhythm & lead guitars.  I had the main track basically completed & got about halfway through the guitar solo before it became apparent that the tools for getting a proper metal sound weren't there.  I decided it wasn't going to sound up to my standard of quality... so I scrapped it.  Sure I could pull it off with C3 though

hehe...thought that might be a yes....i think some of their stuff hasn't aged so well....but there's still some great ministry tunes...i was an even bigger butthole surfers fan......so when ministry/gibby haynes came out with 'jesus built my hotrod' that was just the ultimate...

Oh hell yeah!  Jesus Built My

Oh hell yeah!  Jesus Built My Hotrod... such a cool song.  Psalm 69 is ?possibly? their best album in my opinion.  NWO, Just One Fix, all classics.  I do also like Ministry's less "metal" material though, The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, Twitch come to mind (Most of my favorite industrial music is of the "synth" variety like Skinny Puppy)

 

BTW has anyone ever heard this old Ministry tribute album "Wish You Were Queer"?  It's amazing.  Some of my all-time fav's are on that disc
