Coiled Up…

My instrumental-only cover of Lacuna Coil’s original song “Swamped” from their album Comalies (the song is also available for download in Rock Band) has been posted to the right.  It is currently the 2nd song in the list.

Remember: I am looking for singers to mix into this track, so if you think you’ve got the chops (and a mic), record a raw track of yourself singing any of the parts (no reverb, no additional sounds) and I will mix them in and post that track here as well!  Think of this as a tribute to one of the hardest working bands in the world.

Make an MP3 of your vocals, and send them to my email address: rtoomim (at) cagames (dot) com.

Learning how to Rock

August 21st, 2009 Comments off

I decided a couple of days ago that I’d make a concerted effort at recreating a rock song. Seeing as I’ve never composed a full song in this genre on my own, it’s a substantial task.

I chose Lacuna Coil’s song “Swamped” as my subject, and I’ve nearly completed the instrumental part of it. Since I’m not a great singer, I’m not yet sure if I’ll attempt to get that part in the final mix. So, if any of you out there are singers in the Austin area (liking Lacuna Coil would help), and you feel like being part of a fun experiment you should get in touch with me!

Edit: Even if you’re NOT in the Austin area, and you like Lacuna Coil enough to record yourself singing this track, I’ll welcome the submission and attempt to include it in the recording.

Even if I am unable to get singers, I’ll be posting the version of the backing track that I’ve created sometime soon. Looking forward to your critiques!
