Creativity is Exhausting

So, as the title implies... I just spent all day working on a song for my album... in particular... "Awakening". And it's still not done.

This might be one of those songs where by the time I'm done writing it and everything, I'll hate it because I've had to listen to it over and over again... hundreds of thousands of times... while trying to get it just right.
Fortunately, it is almost done, I just have I guess what you could call 1 "section" left to do, as well as a few tweaks throughout the song, and then mixing... And I've already got a few other songs going in regards to the other genres going on the album (Classical and Trance/Electronic), so hopefully once I get Awakening done, I'll zoom right along, as when I'm doing metal, I always seem to take longer to finish a track. Mostly due to human error while recording the guitar parts... And partly due to the horrible midi interface in Reaper (Which I use to write pretty much anything that involves guitar, as opposed to FL Studio for everything else).

Orchestral metal is a lot of work for 1 person, I'm tellin' ya.

Also... have some wub wub... because I don't really have anything else of worth to say right at the moment...

Wub wub wub wub.

You guys should totally follow me. I have no idea what following me does for you (Or me)... but you should do it and tell me what happens. I'll love you long time.

No you won't >:P

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

You're probably right... I'm sorry!

... But I would appreciate it!

Well it's too late now... I've already initiated the Apocalypse (â*¯Â°â-¡Â°ï¼o/ooâ*¯ï¸µ â"»â"â"»)

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm ok with this, the world could use a reboot anyways.


2012-09-23 23:07:37

<_< that was supposed to be a table flip... anyways....

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah... NG isn't very fond of special characters unfortunately.


2012-09-23 23:59:08

Oh I know that feeling man.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Hard work it is.


2012-09-24 01:44:09

But I am already following you!
Apparently though, it informs me whenever you do anything, and I mean ANYTHING, unless it is related to the BBS.
Which is a shame, really. I truly enjoy reading your posts like a creepy stalker, and would like to be notified when you do post in the forums. Especially before you lock a topic while rocking dat kitty face :3

Power to the kitty face :3

Well, just be sure to not burn yourself out. I'll get your album as soon as someone starts putting it up on some file-sharing site.

i still like you tho

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't think I'm popular enough for anyone to bother doing such a thing... but if they are... shame on you!

Make me a sad panda.


2012-09-24 13:55:39

Did you say Panda ?
Huh sorry, I wanted to talk about the fact that I totaly don't know what to write so I may stop doing it.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

You don't have to feel obligated to comment on every post I put up you know.


2012-09-24 13:56:29

Also, that was a spam sorry, I also wanted to tell that awakening won't disappoint us, I know it.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Glad to hear it!

I know how it feels to hate one's own song because of listening to it over and over. Were there any songs that you didn't hate after finishing it?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Them and Yin are 2 songs I still listen to on a fairly regular basis and enjoy. I also still enjoy listening to Dream Part 1 (And 2) on occasion.

Aside from that, I don't necessarily hate it all, but it's not something I'd put in my personal playlist.


2012-09-25 01:16:27

Dude i hate that feel, when you work on a song for so long you have no idea how fresh ears will perceive it, can't stand it, I've been working on my newest album for about a year and the older songs, I just don't even know, ya know? Sometimes I get the same feel if I work too long in a day on a song, but when I sit on it for months it sometimes is a little maddening.

Also nice angel beats thumbnail/pic.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, it is quite maddening...

And my desktop background is currently an edited version of that picture... very pretty. Helps that Angel Beats is one of my all time favorite anime too.
