Singled Out: Audiotopsy's The Calling

Today Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne) from Audiotopsy tells us the story behind the song "The Calling" a track from their debut album "Natural Causes," which is being released by Napalm Records tomorrow (Aug 28). Here is the story:

I was sitting around my 1 Bedroom Apartment in Texas with Mary Jane back in July 2014. I heard this Riff in my head like I always do so I picked up my Acoustic Guitar and started transposing the "Verse Riff". It came together really quick and before I knew it I had an entire Intro and Verse written. I kept on grooving to the verse riff trying to come up with a Chorus.

That Chorus did not come to me til I went to Matt McDonoughs house for a Weekend of writing sessions. We haven't played together since 2009. That is where the Chorus Riff was first written. Matt and I put the Structure of the Song together that weekend.

The Vocals came together in the Studio at On The Porch Studios in Orlando the following August. We had a tough time trying to come up with a Hooky Chorus until we left for a Beer run and I hummed this Melody "Slow,Burning,Flame" to Billy on the way out the Door. We got back from the Store and Billy went in and Tracked the Chorus Vocals. The rest is History!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
