This was originally recorded in the summer/fall of 2002. The band broke up and it never got mixed, but I managed to hold onto the Cakewalk 9 bundle file for all these years. JB's thread about Wicked Game covers being really bad reminded me of this, so I gave it a listen.
It's actually a really good recording considering how inexperienced we were. The drums came out amazingly well. I really hated the main rhythm guitar track, so I quickly re-recorded it with the Canadacaster into a Plexi Variac model in the Pod XT. It's a big improvement over the previous take. Everything else is the original audio from 2002 with some compression, EQ, and reverb. That's me on vocal - not a bad take considering I'm a pretty lousy singer.
I'm really proud of our version of this song. I think we really conveyed the intent of the original while giving it a new and unique flavor.
