Force Majeure - The Great Starfall

Post by MajorForce » Mon Nov 10, 2014 12:11 pm

Hello Stratovarius Community.

Force Majeure is proud to introduce their new front man, Mr. Marcus Lång. Sir Marcus hails from Varkaus, Finland and has a powerful voice that commands you to check out the new Force Majeure single called "The Great Starfall".

Besides the solid delivery of new Force Majeure line-up, the track features guest appearance on keyboards by Mr. Aleksi Virta of Finntroll.

I liked it, there are a few things in the production that really stands out, the drums are amazing, sharp and clean as hell, the keys sounded really great
and the mix really push them in the front
I didnt like the vocal double tracking too much pitch correction, too perfect for nature

The glorious Stratoforum does it again. It never fails!

Adrian9, our singer is apparently superhuman since no autotuning was used in the making of this record. And there is only two tracks of vocals - lead + one for the second voice parts.

I didnt said auto tuning (that is a trademark by the way) , I said pitch correction, there are many ways to correct the pitch or out of tune instruments etc, reverb , delay, also the double tracking technique itself is a way of keeping the vocal track in tune.
in any case I was complimenting there is no offense in the use of autotune etc, everybody does it.

I also think I forgot to thank you for your compliments. :) thanks for taking the time to give the track a spin. What comes to mixing of vocal tracks, we only added some delay... Since everything sounds better with delay.

I am sometimes offended that people instantly think that everything is fake on albums. Of course the problem is that nowadays it can be. Drums and keyboards can be quantizied or programmed, vocals autotuned etc. But there still is awesome players and singers with perfect pitch
