No guitars were injured in the making of this track.

The riff was originally a drop-D guitar riff. I transferred it to the bass and ps-20 (Korg MS-20 emulation) which was on special yesterday.

Synthesizers:
ps-20
Sektor

Disrupted

Disruption
Interuption
Destruction
Of corruption
What we need

Disruption
Eruption
Instruction
False deductions
Make us bleed

Moody atmosphere and execution. The chanted vocals really work well.

Oooh, BIG synth vibe on this—love it! This could be an outtake from Neil Young's "Trans" album (from way back when he and Nils Lofgren got *seriously* into vocoders; the critics hated it, but I still think it's the most metal thing he ever did.) The way the reverb settings are in synch with the beat is so, so satisfying to me. It's brilliantly done.

Oh I really love this crunchy great sound and the strong bass/percussion with the synths over top and the cool concise lyrics! Perfect for the skirmish!

An electronic thunderstorm. ⚡️ Suits the topic. 👍

One word surprised me: "instruction"? Has a mostly positive connotation for me, like the instructor in a training, or one of the steps in a computer program. All the others are mostly negative ("disruption", "destruction", etc.) or turned around ("false deductions").

Ooooh. Those are some pretty cool effects, and a nice place for the sparse lyrics to float and slam...Good work. Maybe I need a Horror Box.

Nice to find a new toy on special pricing. And I must say, owning a Horror Box sounds to be absolutely scary proposition. All that being said, logical progression of lyrics makes for an interesting song. And a conversation starter at the pub.

Save the Guitars, lol!!! I like how heavy the music is and that you balanced it with succinct lyrics. That lets both elements shine in their own way. Both give this a nice edge. Thanks for participating!

I'm glad because I hate guitar abuse! :) This is wild and powerful and funky!
