“We’re There” was originally an Else song, but was deemed to not truly be in the Else style. I rerecorded the guitar and bass parts with some different sounds, added new layers of drums and fx, and then finally wrote a melody over the top.

A new soundtrack to the classic horror/survival game, Silent Hill. Orchestral sounds are provided by EWQL Symphonic Gold, electronics from Absynth, and a few bass tracks were recorded with my trusty Fender Precision Deluxe.
I founded Else in 2010 with the guitarist from Effigy and A Life Elided.

The project continues to serve as a way for otherwise unused or off-style band ideas to see the light of day. Check out aLifeElided.net »
