We needed a thread for people to show off what they do. Currently checking out this guy:

Everything in here is better than that song by a distance so great that it can no longer be called a "margin".

Any music I would create would come out as either

A) 1980s/early 1990s Hardcore/crust worship

or

B) Old school grindcore worship (probably with a bit of black metal technique/phrasing as well)

There's enough of both genres. Maybe I'll start up a project for fun, but my compositional abilities are far behind what I would need to create a lasting work.

I have a bunch of riffs i been toying with. I don't know shit about drums though.  Would anyone be interested in laying down a drum track(electronically or not) if i sent them a copy of the song and its worth contributing to.

I'm not too tech savvy, but I will take a listen if you have any complete songs. I'll play acoustic drums, too.

I have a project called "Valscharuhn," and I actually posted one of the demos for it on here a while ago.  I look back on it and don't really like it much though.  Now I'm working on some ambient stuff, here's a link to one of the songs I've already finished.  My intention is to make a concept album based on the seven wonders of the ancient world.

While the genres might be slightly different, you saved me the work of writing out my excuse for not taking the time to create something as well. I've not met many people in my area who share my music philosophy though, which really zapped my motivation to stick with it when I was in college and hamming away on the cheapest guitar I could get.

Already harped on this before, but, in the interests of chit-chat:

I could give it a try Libido.  You can send it to my Yahoo if you wish.

More of my devastation in "practice"

Good harmonies on that one.  However, even though you've got a lot of rhythmic variation in your music, I sometimes find that the "1 2 1 2" drum beat, with the snare accentuating the third beat of each bar continuously, should be broken.  Similarly, you should make use of fills from time to time, to give a greater sense of transition between some of the more violently opposed riffs (mainly in their rhythmic content, again).  The riftcraft in itself is good, but the drums need to follow the riffs in a more dynamic function.

That is my one flaw really. I want to add more variations on the snare and add fills, but I falter sometimes thinking about how to do it though.  Back to the grindstone!

It's trial and error, as with all aspects of composition.  Eventually, you hit upon certain methods which can only serve to improve the quality of your compositions (I recently discovered "melody", as opposed to just "riffs" - thank you Emperor, Summoning, and Mozart).

I am redoing the song as we speak. It slipped that this was not the final version I though it was.

Someone once told me that melody is their secret weapon in composing, so I never forgot that.
