Kilimanjaro - dirt rock n´roll
POSTED BY: neitcho POSTED ON: 20 Dec 2006 02:39 PM
Recording collaboration, initiated from studio forum.

* SONG: Kilimanjaro * ARTIST/GROUP: Shrine of Distortion * GENRE: Rock n´Roll * TIME: 03:02 * COMPOSER : slaptap (bass, drum programming ) , Vallhagen (vocals), ynot (vocals), Hellpig (guitar R), djonas (guitar L, guitarsolo), Nikolaus (smooth voocals) & dede (synthsolo) * LYRIC : dede * PRODUCER : Everyone * MIX: djonas * RECORDING : 2006 * FORMAT: mp3 * SIZE : 4,17 MB * STATUS: Completed demo * SONG LINK: Go here to listen The initiative to this collaboration was initiated by slaptap, when he posted a presentation of one song he had been working on in the forum of the Swedish studiozine. The base of the song was constructed from a bass guitar jam he made along with a serious drum programming. The interest in continuing to develop the song was enormous among other musician and singers. The original thread in the forum rapidly turned into the most popular, with thousands of views and close to three hundred comments. When slaptap had established the contact with the most eminent musician and singers the song stated to live its on life. Everyone involved was separately responsible for bringing their part to the recoding. The coordination of the different styles of everyone involved made the work complicated but it's also what made the song stand out. During this work comments like this was posted in the forum: “This still sounds pretty good for being a bunch of fools more or less recording what they feel like close to simultaneously without listening to each other” /Hellpig The compilation of the song was made by a majority of the involved. The chosen final mix was made by djonas. It was presented with the usual sermonic procedure on the forum and once again a wave of positive comments was posted by listeners. ”Applauds ! I take my hat of, You made it!” /Baktakt “Shit, heavy, Great sound, it's a pleasure to listen to the instruments. Good vocals. This is a song with great potential.” /Soxic ”Haha, this was fun… you kind of gett everything at once” /steflund Shrine of Distortion became the band name of the collaboration. The future of S.O.D is still unwise. More certain the members have found new ways of creating future projects. My self I'm now participating a project initiated by dede, were several of the guys from this project are involved. The aim is to record material for a twenty minutes song. Maybe this will be the follow-up to the Kilimanjaro success?

Band History
Light rock with influences from electronica. I'm interested in rock music. I play the guitar and sing and as well I do song writing. The songs you hear on my spot here at RadioIndy are:

My Dog
It's an ironic pop-song bout what you'd do to get what you want.

Sometimes you have to make an effort not to look bored, even though you are not bored. The Indian drum will help you with your motivation.

My Dog is a 2007 production and the other songs (Push) is taken from the Boiler Man EP, released 2006.

The Boiler Man record has the songwriting style of a rock song played on acoustic/electric guitars and with smother vocals than you'd expect from this genre. Another element of the sound is the mixture of keyboards recognizable from electronic music. The participation of musicians active in both the rock and electronic genre made this record possible.
Special thanks goes to: Jesper Eriksson for music/lyrics and instrumental recording of "Stars". Jerry(slaptap) bass guitar on "Ask Me". Micke(Twilight Zound) keyboards on "Ask Me". Henrik Trollvad bass guitar on Boiler Man. Anneli Rydahl lyrics to "Boiler Man" and choirs arranged and sung on the record.
