Forever buildings up in a blink of an eye

This dance track has been a year in the making.
I liked it..then hated it, then loved it, then hated it, then again loved it, and finally came to the decision that yes indeed I did like it and was ready to go back in for another final mix. Of course it didn’t hurt that Todd was stoked for it and really wanted it finalized once and for all.
The process began on a regular Thursday jam session when Todd started messing around on the microKorg with some angelic church organ sounds. I was immediately hooked on the melody, and my vocal line pretty much copies it. But it is hard to tell in the final mix as the guitars took precedence…mainly because they push the song much harder and drive it home with their drilling lead notes. The beats took way too long to make but it was well worth it in the end. I was able to beef up all the bass levels consistently without peaking…this was in the hopes of a possible vinyl release someday…yum.
The lyrical content covers apocalyptic themes, family importance, introspection, and the fight to end all fights…the usual meanderings of my brain.

Hope y’all enjoy it…
