Thanks for the comment! I knew she would be a perfect fit for this song and ya a duet would be an interesting idea. I always go for trading off in these collab songs.

The guitars lacked for sure, I always base my songs on the guitar being the best part but this time it was the vocals being the best so I struggled to find a rhythm to play and what to play for the instrumental. Tempo changes scare me since I can just barely play in time to the metronome on the drums recently.The metronome has killed a few of my song ideas that I just have no idea what the timing is. But ya it would've made the chorus pop, I outta practice that.

Through the time I'm back with my 20th album!

I started my music recording journey 4 years ago and it's really surprising to me that I made it this far. I hit a massive writer's block after my previous album Closer To Clarity and it all paid off with this explosion of inspiration. Most of the songs are stand alone and the album just touches on themes of my life lately with a lot of Gundam references and Goof Rock elements. It has three sections in a way, the normal Kanttila album stuff, the acoustic based stuff and the Goof Rock.

You can hear my inspiration start to fade by the end however so I knew I had to cut the album. It was like a burst that lasted only about 3-4 weeks. I used a lot of bits and pieces I'd written over the last 11 months and tried to make this more melodic. I think this is one of my best albums, not better than Post America by any means but perhaps a close second or third. I'm happy with it overall and man it feels good to release another album after so long!

This is Slipping Through The Time!

20 albums, 2020, it all comes together for this 20 song compilation of the best and most representative songs I've made since beginning this musical journey 4 years ago. It features 6 songs from my first 2 years and 14 from the latest 2 years. I went with the 20 songs that show my music off the best. Many of them are very flawed but still show my progression. The only trouble was how many Post America songs to include since it's my best album. I went with four but I could of easily included seven.

It opens with easily my best song "Magnus Bridge". I just can't top that song, it was a total accident and I didn't know I was making my greatest track when I recorded some random alt tuning riffs. "Under The Skywalk" was a song I almost didn't include because of how bad my vocals are on it. However it captures a real emotion for me and I recorded it after my last shift of my third job, so it's very significant. "I Don't Know Love" I also debated about since it's how I used to feel before things changed but it's the first song I wrote of it's kind and it's certainly an important song for myself that shows how I felt at that time. 

I could write forever about my own songs but like...why. So here is a compilation album. 20 Of The 20!

The Manimal's Music (NEW SONG)
« Reply #498 on: September 05, 2020, 08:44:29 AM »
The next set begins! This is my second collab with Cola, "Mystic Hour". I came up with the music/melody and she wrote the lyrics. I wanted us to sing together this time, unlike "Days Of Fire" where we traded off. This is certainly a different type of song for me. I have tried in the past to do acoustic songs with no drums but this is easily my most successful attempt at that, and it's all thanks to Cola for making this come together like it did.   

I think part of why this worked is because it was in the works for a few weeks so it had a lot of time to sit. Instead of being rushed out as soon as I had the idea. I intend to make my next album more chill like this, but we'll see. I'm in no rush this time to make it fast. I'm just going to let the songs come when they do.

^^I think this is one of your best songs. Feels super cohesive and you are working well within your vocal range. Good job to you both :)
