the following credits:

I have to say I do find it
hard to get very excited about this track. Maybe it's all about the video. Anyway... One
thing that is quite interesting, though, is the way both the kick drums are pumping the
opposition-panned guitar 16th notes. The release time feels quite a bit slower than I'd
usually expect for the normal 'my ears are crumpling at this volume' psychological effect,
so instead that guitar part just sort of bubbles out of the balance whenever there's a
break in the kick pattern -- a kind of automatic fill generator, if you like!
