NOW I'M STUCK IN THE MIDDLE LIKE A SANDWICH
MY FIRST METAL RECORD
(FFO: P.O.D., LINKIN PARK, DEFTONES, NIRVANA, PAPA ROACH, GOOD CHARLOTTE)
This song was written nearly 3 years ago, around the same time I started producing & making my music. Originally this song was supposed to be a collab with my lifelong best friend & he ended up putting me in the middle like a sandwich with my ex-girlfriend. I am proud that I finished this song without him and converted negativity into positivity with this record. I want to empower people who have been abused and mistreated and fuel you with energy through this track! The music won’t disappoint you either, so check it out!
I learned a lot from those experiences & at the same time kept improving my production quality for my mixes & masters. I have rendered so many versions of this song over the years because at first, I did not know what I was doing but I have confidence you will enjoy how this song feels & sounds. There are 2 guitars, a bass, a drum set & me! Please listen to it on your monitors, car speakers, headphones, or cell phone speaker & hear the consistency in all the elements on any device. I wanted the song to be consistent across all devices & at the same time be able to make you feel the sounds. I didn't want to squash the song cause it did not sound good with all the intense dynamics going on. I blended the frequencies & hope you can appreciate my attention to detail on this record.
This song is a heavy rock/metal track with influences of rap metal similar to bands like P.O.D., Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Papa Roach, Nirvana, etc., and grunge guitar and low-end tuning to get a dark atmosphere representing the song's lyrics. What happened was dark and scary but allowed me to grow and heal through it all. Watch the music video below!
