Posting a few kick-ass heavy metal demos - "Angels & Demons (Instrumental)" By Orion Hellraiser

This is one of my favorite songs, the only one to this date planned to be completely instrumental, which was one of my dreams back when I started to play music and I was only 12 years old banging my head listening to some Metallica songs.

Fun fact is that I created this song by accident, when I was jamming and goofing around with Black Sabbath's "Children of the Sea" which starts with a D Minor chord and it suddenly became the main riff when the distortion starts by refining some notes to my liking.

Sometimes I think that I might be the only one in the world that actually loves the "Lulu" collaboration from Metallica and Lou Reed, and to prove it, this song was largely inspired by the song "Dragon" from that album.

It's hard to say what was exactly going on inside my head at the time, it was a very difficult time in my life when I finished this song, and back when I saw how the song was progressing ....I actually forgot everything else, I was so mezmerized by the riffs and the melody that I forgot everything else, that's why I love music and I'll keep doing this until the day I day

It's also hard to say which songs inspired me to make this one, I had some Saxon, Metallica, Beethoven, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and Angel Witch running on my head, I just mix everything in my mind to create something that I really love....

The title (such as many other songs that I made) was conceived by the sound, I wanted to portray some tranquility and chaos, a beautiful chaos, and I remembered Dan Brown's book entitled "Angels and Demons", and the title of the book (just the title!) described everything perfectly on the song, so I used it.

As far as the animation goes, it was inspired by the "Angels & Demons" logo I created shortly after the song was conceived, which was simple.... but I loved it, and it largely described the song also.

If you're interested on the animation, please check out this guys which template I modified to create the really really cool animation on After Effects http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imm2nr...

New demo NEXT MONDAY!!

Posting a few kick-ass heavy metal demos - "Confussion" By Orion Hellraiser

Well well well....... what do we have here? I'll be releasing some original demos, that I "mastered" in order to keep a decent and constant audible level, There'll be a total of 6 songs that will be periodically uploaded to my youtube channel, These covers have no footage whatsoever, so instead of making a shitty static video, I'll be making shitty animated videos for your joy in the next couple of weeks.

This one in particular is kinda old, recorded 5 years ago, it was the first song that actually made me believe that I could record decent music and was the first song I started to play for some people, and I started to upload it everywhere, and it was composed to actually have some vocals on it, check it out!


The animation was chosen because it really fitted the old cover I used back in the days to promote the song, and I think it came out pretty good, it's up to you the final opinon!


We'll meet again next Monday, with another kick-ass demo....
