Post Session Drummer for Hire (extreme metal or any genre)
I'm trying to earn some extra money and have recently upgraded my drum recording setup, so if you want drums for your song or album please contact me through bandcamp or facebook or email thelastbreathofthedying [at] yahoo [dot] com.


Background
= I've been playing drums since 2002 (guitar since 1995) and have been releasing my own underground extreme metal music in Ontario since 1999
= I'll play any genre of music for you to the best of my ability (I'm most experienced with death/black/grind (tech, brutal, oldschool), thrash, prog, mathrock, experimental, free improv, etc)


My Gear
= for mics, I use three SM57s for snare, rack tom, floor tom - Beta 52A for kick - AT2035 for overhead
= or I can use two SM57s for left/right overheads and use two cheap Nexxtech mics for toms
= I can also sample replace my snare/kick/toms if you want to use samples of my kit or different samples
= the mics go into a TASCAM US-1800 and then into my laptop with Reaper


Price
= around $50+ for about ten minutes of playing (I'll have to hear your music before giving a quote)
= I will receive 0% of any money you make from your project


What I need from you
= Powertab/Guitar Pro files or MP3 of your songs with the final song structure
= feel free to include programmed drums (I can try to immitate them or make up my own parts, I'll play whatever you want me to play)
= payment by PayPal, Interac e-transfer or money order


What I will give you
= preliminary MP3 mixdowns of the work I've done for your project prior to payment, if you want me to make changes before recording finals (please don't ask me to keep changing stuff - I'm not a human drum machine for you to try out different beats on to figure out what you want)
= once I've received/deposited your payment, I will send individual 24-bit wav files of kick, snare, rack tom, floor tom, overhead(s)
= files will be raw with no effects, so you can do anything you want to them (if you want, I can provide my Reaper project file that has the EQs and compression I've used in the prelim mixdowns)


Here's a video of me playing drums/guitar:

Just a heads-up that I changed this topic into a "session drummer for hire" topic. Sorry for bump.

Bumping before this gets deleted.

I'm always looking for new people to work for. Right now I'm working with Toronto death/black metal band DEITY, German one-man experimental black metal band VOIDCRAEFT, and American one-man progressive death metal band ARKHANE.

The projects have been going along smoothly and it's been fun working for those guys.

Here's a song I drummed on for ARKHANE: https://soundcloud.com/matthew-brown-214/red-as-blood-within-second-mix

He calls his project progressive death metal. That song kinda reminded me of Opeth a bit. He did all the guitars/bass/vocals and my drumming was based on his programmed drums.

VOIDCRAEFT has released his new album that I drummed on.

Youtube of track 1:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf_94HjJFMc&list=UUvxlg1n_qPIMV14fHR4GiWg

Album download: http://voidcraeft.svart.nu/#voidcraeftNegationMadeFlesh

The music is experimental black metal with lots of different parts. The first 3 songs use some weird microtonal tuning, while the last 2 have a normal tuning (but still sounds pretty weird). He's from Germany and played guitars, bass, and did vocals (my drumming was based on his drum programming). Memorizing all these songs and recording drums for each in one full take was a fun challenge.
