Michael Trapp - aka The Alien, aka Mike E.T., is a guitar wizard, musical genius, madman, composer and all around nut job. He has been bouncing around the music "scene" for years. He's worked with Prog bands, Power Pop bands, Metal and Alternative bands in both NYC and LA. All were always "kind of" successful and almost all broke up due to internal power struggles. Fed up with bands in general he got a house in the Poconos, PA and started to build Sober Sucks Studios. If you can ignore the tape holding the computer together or the Crazy Glue keeping the necks on his guitars from falling off you'll see he has everything necessary to write and record his insane masterpieces of musical insanity. With the help of his mixdown engineer and psychiatrist, Paul Kurzweil - a.k.a. that Kurzweil Guy, Trapp has the ability to do just about anything he wants. And what he wants - is frightening! Enjoy the musical mayhem... And for anything Mike E.T. check his website - http://www.miketrapp.com

Imagine, what if Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, King Crimson, Ozzy, Sabbath, Nirvana, The Beatles, Zeppelin, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Stone Temple Pilots, Steve Vai, Beethoven, My Chemical Romance, Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa were all thrown into a blender with some Tequila and strawberries... Then add a bong hit or two... That just BEGINS to tell the story...

hey Arthur thanks so much man, Glass Wind was actually more inspired by an old Jeff Beck tune but I love Buckethead as well so I consider that quite a compliment you rock for saying SO! ;-0

That's funny, cause Buckethead learned his licks from Jeff Beck, do doubt!

wowee so tight mix, alien man not wash out like amateur use reverb
final master still need very slight master reverb, short time, no reverb EQed, quiet level on master, spread near 72 percent.
this fat up entire mix, but listen person should not be aware reverb maybe
very very back in final stereo mix, listener get space without even aware.
master reverb technique very important to make video score
great track, great vocal effect.
call carnifex :)

learn curve already done, produce uses time effective better on Triton LE
Korg VSt series sound good, but not real Triton
Triton prestes available also still, many... sys-ex dump in, you know this?
