More music. Quake had a brilliant soundtrack, and I especially like the theme. Here is my version.

Quake

Complaints:
-Uploading the thumbnail for this song was a pain; for some reason it kept getting flagged up as having a transparency layer, and for some reason NG still doesn't support that.
-Have PNG files never been supported in posts? What's going on here?
-Since I'm airing my grievances. Genres: sort them out. Either make them like tags (see: Soundcloud) or get rid of them entirely. Being forced to pigeon-hole your music into one of a few narrow and quite specific genres is ridiculous. Seriously where do I put Industrial Metal? If there actually was someone looking for music for a flash animation (that's what the Audio Portal is supposed to be for, right?) I can't see how the genre categories would help them either.
-Also, this website looks really bad if you happen to increase the text size in Windows. What can I say, reading tiny, tiny text hurts my eyes.

Night of the Vampire/Out of View

2011-10-18 21:48:06 by Extar

Hello,

Here's two new songs. The first one is called 'Out of View' and I had no idea which genre to put it in. The fact this website still enforces genres onto the Audio portal is ridiculous. Then again, the Audio portal itself is pretty ridiculous.
The second song is a Roky Erickson cover, 'Night of the Vampire'. Yeah, Entombed also did a cover.
Out of View
Night of the Vampire
I don't know why I even bother putting stuff up on here anymore.

Yo yo,

Hello idiots, here's a couple of new songs for you all to ignore.

The first is a cover of the How To Destroy Angels song 'BBB'. I decided to call it 'Big Black Boots' on the portal because the last thing I would want to do is attract the attention of meme-fool idiots from /b/ or whatever that shit is.

The second is an industrial lounge metal cover of Wu-Tang Clan's 'Bring Da Ruckus'. Yeah, whatever.

Look, children! A new song. It's called 'Heckmondwike'.

"This song came about after I heard Iron Acton by 'Beak>' and thought it was really cool.
The lyrics are about
The song is called Heckmondwike because I couldn't think of a better name.
It's called Heckmondwike because I live there."

She's Lost Control

A new song. This time it's a Joy Division cover, 'She's Lost Control'. No one reads this anyway, so listen to it, delete it, whatever.

Better by you, better than me,

The Minotaur

Oh look, it's a new song. This one is all loaded up with electric piano. It's called The Minotaur. Why not be the first of your friends to give it a zero?

The Minotaur.

Danke,

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Tidings,

This is my first 'Christmas single' in quite a while. That I'm happy to see the light of day anyway. It's a version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and it's very industrial sounding. I've been listening to Portishead - Third a lot lately, and I think it shows. The samples are from Sky News and some film with Colin Farrel that was on Film Four the other day.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Comfort and joy,

Extar.

Forgot About Dre

2010-06-12 21:46:16 by Extar

Hello,

It's another song. It's a cover of a Dr. Dre song. It is 'Forgot About Dre'. It has a post-metal sound to it. It is over seven minutes long. It is of no interest to you.

Go away.

Touching A Nerve

Hello idiots,

It was my birthday yesterday and I made a new piece of music. It came about after I got another one of my supposed 'cool' ideas. This time it was attempting to incorporate some elements of dub. Fortunately(?), my understanding of dub is incredibly limited so upon beginning recording, the initial cool idea quickly gave way to other ideas that I hadn't really thought about prior.

It's a bit of a change of pace from the Minor Threat covers of last week, you know how I like to keep you on your toes. It's all very Goats-ish. The samples are from Inland Empire if you like that sort of thing.

Hello idiots.

Two new songs, here are the descriptions:

Bottled Violence; Seeing Red

Nothing fancy, it's a straight cover of two Minor Threat songs that I enjoy. Seeing as I was in full ripping-off-Slayer mode I even bundled the two songs together. Enjoy your one minute and forty three seconds of old school Hardcore.

Kites

This song is a cover of a song by Simon Dupree And The Big Sound. It's a bit of sixties psychedelia that I don't expect you to get at all.
