» From "A Gunshot to the Head Of Trepidation?" // February 26, 2007 10:42:30 AM UTC
Both songs' harmony sections have dual lead guitars playing over bass, without rhythm guitar, and they're at about the same tempo. A bit later in both songs (before the final choruses), some instruments drop out and the song builds back up. "Gunshot" has the bass and drums "built-in crowd interaction" thing going. "Ashes" has the rhythm guitar riffing alone, alternating with the rest of the band playing the accents.
I wouldn't say "Gunshot" was directly inspired by "Ashes," but there is a stylistic similarity to Megadeth's writing there. I'm pretty sure "Hook In Mouth" also has a dual guitar lead over bass, but I can't remember it exactly right now, so shoot me down if I'm wrong. I always thought that the way the solo licks move higher is reminiscent of Metallica's "Fade To Black," but that wasn't harmonized. (Not that Metallica didn't have harmonized leads: see "Ride The Lightning," "Master Of Puppets," and "One." Or that goofy brief major interlude in "No Remorse.") There's also that cool harmonized speed lick at the end of Pantera's "Domination."
Sorry for rambling, but that got me going. Cool stuff
