WEAK13 -Wake Doan
The WAKE DOWN track is a minefield of creative sounds. First written way back in 2000, Nick decided ten years later to attempt to record a super version of this song which he had been playing live on the gig circuit since the millennium. Inspired by many trips to underground raves at the Q Club in Birmingham (United Kingdom) and a love of mixing music together. A combination of Thrash metal, Mid 90's techno, Industrial music and pure experimentation. This battlefield of styles was designed to sound like a war of different music all fighting for glory. The final stages of the song which gives the listener a gentle clean guitar breakdown over the top of cry-like sounds using improvised guitar pick scrapes and swells "To record the first half of WAKE DOWN we had to use a lot of interesting equipment such as a BOSS DR5 drum machine. I wanted the drums and guitars to sound like bullets being fired from a cannon or like something you'd hear during trench warfare during world war 1, towards the end I wanted the guitars to sound like the distant screams of soldiers in the trenches" Nick actually broke down in tears towards the end of the song, a memory came to him of himself standing over the body of his then mother-in-law who had died. He was the second person to discover her body and seconds later he had to inform his then partner that her mother had passed away.
