OG geddy helium vox definitely help here as the vocals still sounds a *bit* more normal than they would if you did it to another 70s hard rock band

Wow, sounds like Pentagram with Jimi Hendrix on vocals.

Now I wanna go slow down another 10 Rush songs just to see what happens.

That sounded surprisingly natural.

sounds like the "we have assumed control" guy from 2112 on lead vox!

henry s, Monday, 31 August 2009 18:30 (4 years ago) Permalink

Off topic, but similar idea. I sped "Mother" up to sound like a Misfits song rather than a Danzig song, but kept the pitch the same.

(Slowed some Rush down with altering the pitch too, and "Closer to the Heart" sounded cool as a slow jam.)

Johnny Fever, Monday, 31 August 2009 18:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

Love this! Nice job w/Danzig there, too - love the cardboard box drums in the chorus.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 31 August 2009 18:38 (4 years ago) Permalink

Both of these are ridiculously great.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 31 August 2009 19:29 (4 years ago) Permalink

Some more hijacking: Van Halen's "I'll Wait" sped up sounds a lot like Devo.

I did a whole CD of stuff like this except with old hardcore tunes. I think I gave a copy to ned 3 years ago?

I have a 45rpm 12" of Number of the Beast that sounds crushing on 33rpm. Bruce sounds like a man on that. I think the key here is to slow down bands with really high pitched singers.

Nate Carson, Tuesday, 1 September 2009 01:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

I played the Butthole Surfers PCPPEP at 33 for a good long while before I realized it was supposed to be on 45. Hadn't heard anything else by them at that point so had no idea it was wrong. It sounds heavy and evil as fuck.

Still do it every once in a while just for the memories.

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 1 September 2009 02:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

i put this on the ipod today. Driving around playing on shuffle, it comes up. The next song is "Big Church" from Monoliths and Dimensions, and I haven't stopped grinning since :)

Dominique, Tuesday, 1 September 2009 02:56 (4 years ago) Permalink

A friend used to listen to a 45 of Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" on 33 when he was a kid and was heartbroken when he first heard it on the radio at normal speed.

Cave17Matt, Tuesday, 1 September 2009 03:09 (4 years ago) Permalink

My girlfriend, a former WCBN dj, swears that the 12" of Holiday by Madonna sounds like Violator-era Depeche Mode when played at 33.

I accidentally played a whole side of Alice Coltrane's Universal Consciousness on 45... sounded great-- extra celestial.

yo yo yo you need to get a copy of the nazareth record where they cover "ballad of hollis brown" by dylan that is TOTES proto stoner/doom metal! it's fuckin nuts!!!!!!

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 01:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

This sounds pretty killer.

On the flip side, Aerosmith's "Nobody's Fault" is a killer thrash metal song if you play the LP at 45.

Give it a shot.

earlnash, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 01:59 (4 years ago) Permalink

Mother sounds killer sped up too.

earlnash, Wednesday, 2 September 2009 02:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

It's like AC/DC with some Minutemen rhythms.

Ha!

the rest of that Nazareth album is not in the same vein as "Hollis Brown"...it's good, just not the same...

This should work if you want to check it out.

I got it up to 45 speed then worked on tuning it back down and got it a bit further down than the original track, but I kind of liked it this way.

i still haven't listened to this but the excitement over it is weird to me -- "Working Man" is a transparent Zep rip and a lot of contemporary sludgy metal bands are just slowed down Zep, this can't be a revelation to anyone can it?

I've never liked Rush much, but hearing Geddy pitched down out of the dogwhistle range, I'm amazed by how much I like his phrasing.
