Modifying your Octavarium for pure brutality!

I really love this album I made some editing
by simply removing some of the sections.

Trim down the songs and retain only the main riffs, solos (wanking parts), more wanking parts etc etc. no verse or choruses simply no vocals.

Octavarium was the most fun to edit.
Though i place the flute part at the end
so as to have this effect of "there's indeed hope"
or whatever the song feels like to me.
It's now only 9:35 mins long.

Of course track 2 and 4 are simply untouchables.

Anyway listening to this songs in a hurried straight to the heavier parts
felt so brutal atleast for me. The riffs, solos, unisons really kick major
sonic asses. wish i could post my modified files for yah
fellas to check them out.

Now i can listen to them while riding a bike
no need to hit the forward or skip key.
Kinda frantic actually.

i've edited ToT and Awake as well.
LoL it's crazy yet so much fun listening
to them without the occasional peskiness
of James voice. although at Octa he sounded
much better.

DUDE!! Of course that //NOSPAM// was meant to prevent automatic spam-bots to find my email-address and mail me all sorts of crap!! :s

Plz edit your post and remove or modify my address?

Anyways, thanks for sending it! I'm not listening to it right now, I'm too busy, I will tomorrow! Thanks!

I've just listened to your edited Octavarium song, alencore!

I must say I don't like it, because the subtlety the song is build up and finally climaxes in "trapped inside this octavarium!!" is really gone.. it's cool that you cut ALL vocal parts away, but IMHO the function and essence of the instrumental parts in this song are lost when you delete the vocal stuff.

I get goosebumps everytime I listen to "IV Intervals", but when you reduce 24 minutes of music to 10 minutes, I don't feel anything at all..

Nice try though, and thanks for sharing! Interesting stuff!
