Touched my heart. The only time I was ever a moderator was on the General BBS, and it's gone.

I had even been curating a new thread for days to open up discussion about the military, and it's lost. When I tried to re-open the tab, all of it got autodeleted. It is a question that'll never be asked.

Hopefully this charges activity into people's review-spaces and news blogs. That traffic just finds somewhere else to be, because that's all that COULD happen. Somehow, I know this will benefit the community here. Just doesn't seem like it yet, but it will.

This came out great! Everyone killed it with their respective impersonations, can't wait to work with y'all again!

VoicesByCorey responds:

If you’re down to help out with the new one just let me know Geoff! 😁

You both are kings! Thank y'all so much, this was a lot of fun! I'll use a better microphone next time, lmao. Thanks for going through editing this, I apologize for talking so, so much. I think I even interrupted a few times, I'll get better about that moving forward.

Much love, stay safe, THRIVE! Let's collab on something soon!


DomAndFroShow responds:

Dom got a new mic and we tried a new system where we both record with audacity at the same time and it worked beautifully. In 2 episodes the quality will go through the roof in comparison.

It's not my favorite flavor of metal, but I recognize that it's difficult to do. I certainly couldn't pull this shit off, but I don't particularly seek out or prefer this vocalization style. I'm not familiar with reels that specialize in this vocal style, but I fathom it would be more useful to demonstrate your ability to announciate lyrics than it is to destroy your throat for 48 seconds going through the vowels.

Like, if a band you particularly like has a verse that you like, wouldn't it be a more worthwhile field test to demonstrate how you would throw your inflection behind performing those lyrics? I think what you have here is too vague, and honestly it sounds kinda painful. Are you sure you're not fucking up your throat with how you're doing this? Is that even a concern?

It makes me think of Henry Rollins talking about seeing a throat doctor and he was looking at his throat and all his problems he was going through and he's just like "my god, how many packs a day do you smoke?" and he's like none, but I'm a singer for a band, and he hooked him up with some of his music and the doctor's like jesus christ man, what are you doing to yourself

A reel should demonstrate to a potential client, or in your case, a band you might want to perform with, your range. Your versatility. I don't think there's a lot of opportunity for you to put on "The Grudge" rattle from the 32 second mark. And while that last monster-over at the end was cool, I don't understand how you'd have an opportunity to do that in a set. Then again, maybe in these genres I'm unfamiliar with, that's a thing and a popular thing...or maybe it's not a popular thing and you're trying to do something different, but from an outside perspective, I think you could benefit from going about your reel in a different way.

A more technical way that demonstrates the complexities of your instrument, which is your voice. More surgical, less fire-hose. More prepared, and less off-the-cuff. Sentient, not primal. This will come with practice, this will come with realizing and honing down exactly what you want to do with these skills. I think you're onto something, and this represents a humble beginning into something that could turn into much more than this reel with a lot of research, practice, and networking.

DrunkGecko responds:

I can assure that my throat is fine, because it's fry vocals. I see your point with the lyrics though. I'll try that sometime. That "grudge rattle" is actually very common in genres such as Goregrind and Pornogrind. The last vocal technique is called a Tunnel High and it is one of the most common techniques used in Deathcore. Deathcore is basically Death Metal mixed with Hardcore. I felt that if I made it edited it would take away the idea of being able to do these vocals live without editing, which I can certainly do and that's why I didn't edit it. Also, I don't really want to do bands with other people, because then I can't express ALL of my creativity. From 2018-2019 I've had 16 music projects and I've done all the instruments and vocals. These are the projects if you're curious: Ass DJ (Cybergrind), Embryonic Defilement (Slam/Deathcore), Esophageal Maggots (Brutal Death Metal), Screech Calamity (Depressive Suicidal Black Metal), Traumatic Serenity (Atmospheric Black Metal), Atmospheric Apocalypse (Black/Death Metal), Sock (Nu Metal/Deathcore), Thornbush (Grindcore/Powerviolence), Alien Tampon (Gorenoise), Dankophiliac (Pornogrind/Grindcore/Noisegrind), Futanari Magic Loli (Noisecore/Cybergrind), Grimpsy (Raw Black Metal), Kuikomi (Gorenoise), Laceration Lord (Slam/Goregrind), Lolicon Legion (Slam/Pornogrind), Pawg Beelzebub (Black Metal/Pornogrind), Pulse Palpitation (Experimental Electronic), Tranny (Depressive Suicidal Black Metal). I honestly feel like I got networking down, but there is always room for improvement when it comes to music. I appreciate your review :)

Oh my God! An actual EVP! We could change the world with this!


Holy shit, this is heavy as hell! I love the pace, I love the tone of the guitar, it all feels so huge! Based on what I've heard from your soundcloud and now this, you've been killing it lately, and I'm stoked for you.

Would you mind if I sampled this for a rapbattle entry with a collab credit?

Sinitech responds:

Thanks, man! If you want to put a verse on it or something, it's all yours, brother.

Yo, get in touch with New Retro Wave on Youtube to get more ears on your stuff, this is pretty legit.

Perfect music to back a party and add a flair of class to the ambiance. It's VERY conversational; smooth, groovy, and never disrupts itself or the atmosphere for the sake of it. This is the kind of thing you could put on for your lady by a fire-place...as opposed to 87% of the metal in my library which would be better suited for thrashing her INTO a fire-place.

It's a cool change of pace from the kind of music I expect to hear out of the Audio Portal, and on that note, it's really nice too. If I reviewed this a few years ago, I'd probably deduct points for it not standing out or being dynamic and complicated...but by being bluesy, and not deviating from the theme at it's core, it's sturdy at the foundation, and like I said, there is ABSOLUTELY demographics and situations that would absolutely call for this kind of talent. With that in mind, it excells at what it does. So full stars and vote!

Lageira responds:

Thanks man! I'm glad you liked it :)

I'm posting lyrics if anybody wants them...

Draggindraggindraggindraggin Ball! Ball! Ball! Ball!"

Ockeroid responds:

Thank you for posting. They have deep meaning and are very personal to me

This is pretty good, I don't know why you're so hard on yourself about it.

Needs to be longer, needs room to grow and dip and dive into time that mixes itself up. You're onto something good, dude. Fived!

Might need lyrics too :P

Sinitech responds:

I'm hard on myself because I'm hard for myself. I truly am a sexy beast.

And yeah, it will be longer once I finally get around to finishing it. As far as lyrics, this seems like it would be hard to do anything with to me. The drums sound kind of like they'd be awkward to keep on beat with, but I don't know because I don't sing or rap.
