|It’s been a hot minute since I last posted a Ghost drum cover; June 2022 in fact! I had no plans of doing a Ghost cover any time soon until I heard this song they did of a Genesis classic Jesus He Knows Me. I felt the song had some complexity to it with an upbeat tempo which I have not had to do since the release of the Black Album project. So win win! I jumped on the song immediately and first impressions, damn, this might be tougher than I thought. I knew I wanted to get this song released in time for Ghost’s release of their 5 song cover album, Phantomime which was 4 weeks away!|
It took me a almost 2 weeks to build up the stamina in my right foot because of the quick kick patterns through the verses. Thank god for the Tama Speed Cobra pedals doing some good work! I then worked on getting the correct sound for the kit. I basically stole the Volbeat kick drum patch I made and the snare sound from an upcoming drum cover (which has been pushed back like 3 or 4 months now, LOL!).
All in all, great song to play and glad I was able to get this one under the belt in time to coincide with the release of Ghost’s album as well . In other news, the new drum modules have arrived and my long term project will be starting soon. I am working on a drum cover for August and that could be my last one for the year because of other projects going on that I previously posted about.
