TheFrisk’s WIP Customs Thread


Recommended Posts

Soft updating this OP. This thread is to share what I've got in progress. My goal is to do, at least, the legacy instruments for every custom: Drums, guitar, bass, vocals. Keys will be authored if they're easy enough, within my PK authoring skillset, or if I can find some decent references to use as a base. I'll never release a custom without Pro Keys but with Keys. They're a packaged deal!
Every song listed here is in some stage of authoring (this isn't a wishlist or a to-do list), so if you searched and came across something here, feel free to message me so we can work together! I'll gladly accept any sort of help. :)
Onto the list:

AFI:
Darling I Want to Destroy You
Cold Hands
I Am Trying Very Hard to Be Here
It Was Mine
Too Shy to Scream
Blaqk Audio - Mute
The Used - The Ripper
The Used - Dark Days
The Used - Devil Beside You
Yours Truly - High Hopes
Yours Truly - Circles

 

I'm also down for requests if anybody has them. Just post here or PM me with any requests.

Yeah, someone else would need to help out for vocals (I don't have the ear for it), though I'd be stoked if anybody wanted to step up and chart them! If such a person is out there, shoot me a message and I can toss you the Reaper/Magma files!

 

Also, an update for anyone who cares. I uploaded three WIP tracks to the database - 17 Crimes, 37mm, and Rabbits are Roadkill on Route 37 - so go ahead and download those if you haven't! I will also have three more within the next week or so, these tracks being Clove Smoke Catharsis, Dumb Kids, and Days of the Phoenix.

 

I've started on a few others (Above the Bridge, Don't Change), but outside of that, I haven't decided what else to attempt. So, if anyone has any requests, post 'em here! :)

Interesting, didn't know they covered INXS. Gave it a listen and wasn't terribly impressed, maybe I need to wait for it to grow on me.

Yeah, it's pretty different and mellow compared to the original. They also did a cover of Morrissey's "Jack the Ripper" around the same time they covered Don't Change (both were Decemberunderground b-sides).

I would love see God Called In Sickness Today, The Wind That Carries Me Away, and most of Burials ! Haha!

All AFI though is very much appreciated!

Thank you! :)

 

Good for you then, one of the songs I just finished building is from Burials ;)

 

So, for anyone who's been downloading these, do they have a preference between me trickling out releases when they're done v holding them off for packs of three? I've noticed others opting for the latter, and if I do that, then the next batch will be Heart Stops, The Interview, and Dumb Kids. Then batch three will be some older tracks, consisting of Clove Smoke Catharsis, Days of the Phoenix, and Catch a Hot One. Otherwise, they'd all just be pumped out as they're finished.

Updated the thread! I've been working on a bunch of non-AFI related stuff, and it didn't make sense to have two WIP threads.

 

I like you pumping them out as soon as they are done. But I'm an AFI fanboy so... :rock: :D

 

That's gonna be the plan from here on out (with both AFI and non AFI songs). I've had a ton of time the past few months thanks to an easy-ish senior semesters and some time off from working thanks to graduating, but once I get a job, I doubt I'll have the time to do multiple songs for packs without holding them off way too long.

(Sorry for the double post)

This request of yours has been granted. The wonderful LykaiosSparks42 (who charted the vocals for Scarlet Grey's "Mr Sinister") is gonna be charting vocals for some of the AFI tracks. Last we spoke, he was working on the vox for Rabbits are Roadkill, so expect that at some point in the future. :)

Lykaios is now my second favorite member! The first being you for even bringing more AFI to the game! haha! <3

It's been since the 90's that I have listened to this album but I got inspired to pop it in. "Answer That and Stay Fashionable" which is a no brainer these guys were inspired by Reservoir Dog's. The album is just ok overall to me but there is a handful of good songs on here. If I had to pick 3 of my favorites from it I'd go with:

 

Yurf Rendenmein

The Checkered Demon

Highschool Football Hero

 

If you ever decided to work on these songs I can help out with vocals and drums. Same goes for the songs I mentioned on "Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes". I'll give a listen to the other AFI Nitro albums in the future and give you my top 3 on those.

Up until this point, I’ve been jumping around from song to song, charting whatever seemed the most fun for me to play. While most of these tracks have been from their newer albums, a few of you have expressed interest in their older material. So, to gauge interest, I’m opening it up to a poll; which album would you like to see?


I’ve updated the OP with a poll, with each album and major EP receiving an entry (the Pre-Nitro EP's are all lumped into one). Whichever entry gets the most votes is the one I’ll start on, and I’ll go through the rest in order of interest. Each track will be released one by one, following my usual charting rules (at least G+D), and barring any specific requests or collaboration offers, I’ll most likely work in a random order within that album.


I’ve noticed others doing similar polls for their projects, and while I’m not considering this as AFI Rock Band or whatever, I would like to see their whole discography up here at some point in the future and I may as well start and work on the songs people would actually be most interested in playing.


So go ahead and vote on your most favorite/the album’s worth of material you’d like to see first!


In non AFI-related news, expect a new Pvris track within the next day or so, as well as an old RBN track I was working on (more news on that later).

I honestly will take any and all AFI, but I voted Sing The Sorrow just because I love that album a lot. This Time Imperfect's vocals would be insane.

 

This Time Imperfect would be a killer song for vox. Just remember though, the initial uploads of these won't have the vox charts. I'm reliant on others to fill in those. It also looks like StS is winning, so your TTI wish might be closer than you think :)

 

Also, anyone out there have any Pvris preferences? I've been on a kick of theirs lately (if it wasn't obvious from St Patrick and Fire coming out recently), and am curious if anyone has been wanting any of theirs. I've got My House and Ghosts as WIP's, but am open to other tracks of theirs if there's any demand.

Not a big PVRIS fan so can't help there but since you did do blaqk audio I was going to share this song with you, perhaps you could chart it? :)

 

 

It sounds pretty good, I'll toss it on my list.

 

ALL THE PVRIS!

Well, you'll have at least two more tracks coming pretty soon ;)

So, Sing the Sorrow has won the poll by a pretty decent margin. Second place is a tie between: Art of Drowning, Shut Your Mouth, and "I have no preference". Barring WIP songs that are close to being done and anything done in a collaboration (since those are generally less work for me than doing every instrument), I'll be focusing on Sing the Sorrow tracks next. I've already started on This Celluloid Dream, so expect that first.

 

I've changed the poll to allow people to vote on which StS songs they'd want to see first, and it allows for multiple answers in case someone has two or three songs they're the most excited for. Excluded are anything officially released either in RB or GH and any customs of existing songs. Included are b-sides and other tracks that were recorded during that studio session but might've been released with another album/ep/etc. I've added a separate poll regarding the demos and if anyone would even care to see those versions charted. I feel like I know the answer to that, but I could be surprised.
