Simple 'Mick Gordon style' metal hump - Looking for feedback

2 posts in this topic

Just had sewn this simplistic metal beat together and trying to get it sound similiar like song styles of Mick Gordon. What you think about the song overall? I think the melodic guitars needs some refreshing

Personally, I'd say you're completely off the mark in terms of his usual style. I know you said "similar" and not the same, but this track definitely sounds like 80s thrash metal.

Mick's stuff is basically a fusion of 90s post-grunge (with a smidge of "djent") in terms of guitars, so bands like Pantera, Korn, Nickelback, Meshuggah, Motley Crue's 1994 album, etc. all nail that sound.

but his drums aren't standard kit drums about 90% of the time. It's mostly cinematic, sound-design based stuff. He claims it's his own stuff, and I'm not calling him a liar...but it all sounds suspiciously like heavyocity's damage.

Basically this

Plus this

Equals this kinda rhythm section.


A minor exception is the DOOM score, which is basically down-tuned thrash metal with cinematic and electronica elements.
