I haven't done a lengthy metal track in quite some time. I spent about half an hour setting up the instruments, and then 4 hours composing the piece. I did a bit of post-processing, but to be honest I'm not quite sure what I did. I just used a bunch of filters in FL. John, I tried to take your advice and I did some new things with the actual song structure, but not much. I'm still trying to get the hang of all this again.
I think the filters kind of killed it.
