Years ago I had a small little studio that I recorded several heavy metal tunes in. I used a Fostex 8 Track Cassette Recorder with Alesis Guitar effects and an Alesis Drum Module plugged into an old Roland drum pad set. Don Stone came in and did the lead guitar work, I did bass, drums, all vocals and rhythm guitars.
Tonight as I was getting something from our closet a container of pictures fell on me and in it was a CD of songs that I had mastered in 1997. Ah the memories that flooded back.
I may go back someday and re-do these songs. They had potential. But for now, you get my basement tapes. Even thought I didn’t have a basement and yes, I had a mullet.
Anyway, I thought you would get a kick out of these… not the greatest quality but a kick in the pants.
