:) Haha.... well, I did listen though! Nicely produced, slightly cheesey but in a good way (filmic sounding). Not a bad production really.
Yeah, I'm more into detroit techno and stuff like LFO :)

Another shameless plug for my latest effort. A slice of synthetic dubstep with some sub bass. I hope you guys like it. :D

Was reading the Warp 'labels unlimited' book by Rob Young the other day, and the tale of beckett driving up to leeds to track down their eponymous track that was 'blowing sound systems and peoples ears' brought a smile.

Love the early Warp stuff like them, NOW's Aftermath, sweet exorcist etc.

Auditioning a singer on Saturday to hopefully give my band an extra push over the edge, done okay so far with our drummer doing vocals but it looks a bit naff on stage, really need a proper front man to be a focal point.

Bloody getting annoyed with the price of guitar strings, paying around £10-£15 for packs of three Earnie Ball's, I use two guitars (different tunings) for rehearsals and gigs, so the strings never last long at all, after a few weeks they are like elastic bands. Saying that, I have made some converted effort to look after my guitars better, always oil the fret boards with each string change and re-set the action on the strings.

My god - Doom Rock meets Cliff Richard!! :D Seriously, it makes a change from a lot of the stuff on here which tends to be a bit atonal and devoid of melody. Hmm, I'm just thinking if there's anyone on the thread I've not insulted yet with those comments :lol: :lol:

yea, although i'm not really too consistent with it.. some tracks I wrote 7 or so years ago which I recently put up on youtube. this stuff is sort of jungle tekno (pre drum n bass early 90's influenced)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCglwUDc4BQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69Pf9zXkch8 (yep thats me on the vox)
there's more on there too for those interested related videos in the first link should bring up some of the others. still working out whether to compile them together into an album.

I make stuff which is quite broad in scope, it's mainly experimental and/or atmospheric whatever it is. I did some electronic noise/glitch a few years back and released it as a free lp, won't be everyones taste;
https://crawlthedungeon.bandcamp.com/album/0
thats the stuff I make under the name dungeon crawler. I'm working on a second lp of audio to follow it up with. not sure when that will be finished though.
i'm also doing some 80's influenced stuff. a lot of work in progress and things I haven't quite found a home with is on my soundcloud;

Can anyone recommend some good soft synths, ones that produce decent modern synth sounds, not retro ones?

Massive is a great softsynth. 1000s of modern sounds and expansions. Absynth is also pretty cool.
