WHY DESTROY YOURSELF? WHY DIE BEFORE YOUR TIME? THE KEEPERS OF THE HOUSE TREMBLE. DESIRE IS NO LONGER STIRRED. DO NOT CONFORM ANY LONGER TO THE PATTERN OF THIS WORLD.

DB TINK SAYS: Practising and then recording the same song for hours and hours gets the tune stuck in your head. You end up nodding along when you are outside. You carry it with you out of the house. This song has followed me from keyboard to keyboard over the last 5 years. You would think I'd be sick of listening to it, after the repetitive playing of it when I'm actually putting it together, but once it's done and finished, that's when you listen to it the most.

The basic structure is important. There are common rules to be followed. One, it must start off strong. Two, it mixes things up to apply the brakes at some point. This I picked up from a band called Rammstein, who often turn off their drums in the middle of a song and have a little peaceful moment before it all kicks off again. They call this HALF TIME. Three, you must finish stronger than how you started. No point running out of steam and fading away. I learned this from Progressive EuroTrance. The clue is in the title. Things should be coming in, not going out, or if they do go out, then returning. You'd be surprised how many professional musicians fail to follow these handy hints.

You're only as good as your influences. And, unfortunately, your microphone...
