I am an amateur musician from the Boston Area. Since 2008 I've been writing extreme metal for a solo artist called "Psychotic Fury". I record instruments directly into a PC and use free mixing software to mix every song by hand. I've been learning how to do this and write/perform music since I started in 2000. At first Psychotic fury (or PF) was a very brutal version of 80's thrash influenced by Metallica Slayer and Pantera. In 2009 some progressive metal influences crept in. The stuff I recorded those 2 years are extremely heavy in nature, like slayer x5, making it my favorite thrash music to listen to. Changes happened in 2010 however. Melodic death metal and black metal influences were added in. Currently the sound is a mix of thrash, melodic death, and Progressive metal, still quite heavy but not quite as heavy as in 2009. More melody, much more complex, less harsh vocals (because my voice simply cant handle doing that kind of stuff anymore, sadly)
Death, 80's Metallica, Iced Earth, At the Gates, Testament, Pantera (old stuff only), older fates warning, various black metal bands influences in certain songs.
