Deceptively simple (and brilliant!)
Welcome to Metal Mix Hall Of Fame, where Eyal Levi deconstructs important metal songs from a songwriting and mixing perspective with the goal of helping you level up your next song!
In this episode he deconstructs Slipknot’s “Psychosocial” from their 2008 album “All Hope Is Gone.”
