In the studio, the majority of the session was doom metal, mixed with some iron maiden and classic rock. We played a whole lot of Sabbath and I used the wah pedal to some good effect for "Electric Funeral" and "War Pigs", then snuck some of Sleep's "Dopesmoker" in and started a weird trippy metal rendition of Sublime's "April 26, 1992". Considering that I have also seen two dead bats in my apartment in the last 2 week, Rhode Island has definitely passed the metal threshold for me!
On the down side I definitely forgot how to play a bunch of the Rage Against the Machine songs I knew, but could probably relearn them given some time.
It is hard to explain how cathartic it was to play drums and guitar again with people after a more than 2 year hiatus. We kept leaving for breaks to an empty downtown and coming back totally stoked to try something different. I could definitely get used to this being a regular thing... and could always be looking for more jam partners :D
