"Step Back" FREE Dubstep EP

29 posts in this topic

I dropped my bass. Can you help me pick it up??

STEP BACK: http://theguitahheroe.bandcamp.com/album/step-back

49163323-1.jpg

I've been really getting into the ear-gratingly horrible subgenres of electronica lately, especially dubstep. So consider this my tribute to a "Step Back" in musical advancement :DDDDDD

In all seriousness though, if you're not a fan of loud, abrasive cacophony and substantial overcompression, I suggest leaving this thread now ;)

Of course, it's completely free.

Hope you all enjoy....or at least try. 8)

I'm normally not a huge dubstep guy, but this is actually pretty good. Very strong melodies and good production, this is fun to listen to!

Thanks for posting this!

this is a great EP man, nice work. :D 'Watch Where You're Going' is probably my favorite, totally sick.

This is pretty slick, and I appreciate any/all 8-bit sounds used here. Hope to mix this into my DJ set list some day.

Ok I've given this enough time I'll give some of my thoughts:

Not sure what this genre fits under, I would assume this is "brostep"? Either way, it's irrelevant I was just curious.

I was really moved by the movement in your songs; from the cool 80's style melodies and solos and interesting timbres, then going hard with the crazy choppy sections, except for "Epicenter" since it wasn't structured like the other songs. I think my two favorite from this album are "My Fax Machine is Broken" and I'll Fly Away.

The former I like because of the craziness of the choppy section with that punchy snare and kick beat, I can see some kind of montage with a flurry of clips that depict the issues of the world. I'll Fly Away got kinda touchy, but I could relate because I've been feeling the same way since a year ago, and it actually inspired me to work a little harder on my goals.

Productions pretty solid. It's not commercial, but I would still take the songs from this album over a majority of skrillex's stuff.

Well, this is the end of my short review, each track is fun and quirky while having substance, so props GTH! =D

Hey just wanted to drop by and say that I really, really enjoyed the album. I've been listening to it on loop in my car for at least a full week, and It's just fantastic. Great job. Much love.

I am a sucker for abrasive, super compressed stuff so count me in. Downloading it right now. I should come to the non-Darkesword competition threads of OCR more often.

Edit: Finished listening. I love it! Chip Monster is my favorite. Also the Hank Hill clips are brilliant.
