Tool – The Grudge | GUITAR and BASS COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen on the start of another excellent weekend, and I had a bit of a craving for some Tool. It’s also been a bit since I’ve done something on the bass, so we’re gonna be pulling double duty with both guitar and bass parts. Today we’re ripping through The Grudge, the opening track from their album Lateralus. For many reasons I can’t do the drum parts in the studio… Continue reading

Kalmah – Hades | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen Studios again, ripping through another cover of the melodic death metal variety. This time we’re doing a bit of a deep dive into some lesser-known Finnish stuff, a little tune called Hades from a group by the name of Kalmah! I don’t know what it is, but those Nordic countries have a certain affinity for the crazy melodic extremely heavy shreddy stuff. Must have something to do with… Continue reading

Lamb Of God – Insurrection | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone. I’m gonna keep this short today. Like straight up copy and paste most of the text from the YouTube description kind of short. Been dealing with some personal stuff. If you know, you know. We’re ripping through another Lamb Of God cover today, this time it’s Insurrection off their 2012 album Resolution. I have to say, out of all the albums that I’ve given the chance to listen to, this one has quite… Continue reading

Vicarious – Tool | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s been a pretty hectic few weeks in the studio trying to wrap up the recording for this years RPM Project. Currently there’s 7 songs almost fully recorded, with just a couple little extra bits to add before we get to the mixing stage. That being said, I’ve been craving another Tool cover lately, and I figured it would be a good reason to take a short break from all the RPM stuff… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Sky Charmer | GUITAR PLAYTHROUGH

Hey everyone! We’re kicking it at Okzygen as always, in the midst of this years RPM Project. It’s still a bit early to tell how things are going, but songs are getting written, ideas are getting trashed, strings be vibrating (possibly in more dimensions than we can comprehend), and at the very least, noise is being created. Even though we’re elbow deep in the creation of this weird, thing, we can’t just not have a… Continue reading

Cannibal Corpse – Hammer Smashed Face | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’ve been doing lots of the metal stuff these last few weeks. And this week is no exception. In fact, we’re doubling down on the extremes and going full blown Cannibal Corpse with their tune Hammer Smashed Face! A song I’ve wanted to learn for ages but just never really got around to it. It’s one of those songs I don’t see myself ever playing live or even jamming with a group, so… Continue reading

Lamb Of God – Beating On Death’s Door | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s been quite a bit since we’ve done a Lamb Of God cover, so I figured it was time to bring out another one of their tunes. This time we’re ripping through Beating On Death’s Door, and it’s kind of a funny/stupid reason why. Of course the song itself is bloody fantastic, written by Adler instead of Morton so it’s got more proggy elements to it, and that main riff is such a… Continue reading

Revocation – The Hive | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’re gonna be ripping through some more metal today here at Okzygen, so I hope you’re ready to rage with Revocation! This time we’re tackling the opening track from their self-titled release, The Hive, and I’ve gotta say I haven’t had this much struggle learning a tune since doing the Necrophagist cover a few months back. There’s so much going on with the hands in this song, and once that breakdown riff kicks… Continue reading

Tool – Lateralus | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! We’ve scraped our way to the end of another bloody week (hopefully not literally) and can finally enjoy the weekend! Also it’s a Friday so I need to post another video. But not just any video. No no, this is a cover video. And not just any cover video, but Tool‘s Lateralus. So I hope you’re ready for some recreational math, because this song is chock full of references to the Fibonacci Sequence,… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Run With It | GUITAR PLAYTHROUGH

Hey everyone! We’re back again for our Friday videos, and this time we’re doing an original tune. Run With It was (and I guess still is) a Bandcamp exclusive song I released back in 2017. It was somewhat inspired by the style of John Petrucci, even though the actual music takes more after Nine Inch Nails in terms of structure and tone. It’s got a bit of a slow burn vibe to it as after… Continue reading
