Success in Modern Metal

If you want to succeed in the supersaturated modern metal market, you need to stand out.

Here are a few principles that you may implement based on my lasting experience of producing bands and my own music.

💡Standing out is a very fine balance between fitting the pocket of the market and differing enough just to push its boundaries

💡Hence, using JUST your authentic ideas without exploring what is popular and WHY is a dangerous idea. This may drive your music simply irrelevant.

💡At the same time, mimicking popular trends and creating a mix-and-match of various sonic trends just for the sake of it would not display your authenticity, and your listener would not connect to it at best. 

I suggest the following strategies when writing new music and thinking about its future success in the market:

✅ Explore what is new and trending in a similar heavy style to yours. Super important to follow the trends and understand WHY these songs are in high demand. Break down their stylistic elements and feel.

✅ Then, write music sincerely and authentically, project your message fully, without restrictions.

✅ And then, carve that message stylistically based on the trends that you explored earlier and which FIT its atmosphere (sounds, samples, arrangement, layers, grooves)

✅ It also make sense to stand out with your sound and with your mix – with the similar principle. Fitting the pocket and bending it just a bit. One of the proven strategies for me is to capture unique drum samples on the recording day and use them aggressively for sampled yet unique and real sound.

Success in Modern Metal.

The Overcoming Project – Overcoming EP

The Overcoming Project. Psychedelic Metal with world-class metal musicians Mike Heller (Fear Factory, Malignancy) on drums, Jon Howard (Threat Signal, Imonolith) on vocals, and Sergei “Efes” Fomin (FS Projekt) on bass. Executed by Dr. Mike Trubetskov – Guitarist and Producer at EOL Studios.

”Overcoming” EP depicts a psychedelic journey through immigration, Doctorate degree, Type I Diabetes and insane burnout into discovering the true purpose and becoming a Metal Producer.

Determination, Overcoming, and Victory are more than just heavy songs with killer musicianship. These grow into eternal, psychedelic objects that keep evolving into new dimensions after each listen.

The Overcoming Project was a labor of love and brutal hard work. Having started the songwriting process in 2015, it took 7 years to execute the songs fully. Each production step – arrangement, tracking, and mixing – was performed with the utmost attention to detail and relentless perfectionism. That allowed T.O.P. to gain some recognition.

Since its release, The Overcoming Project has been featured in such magazines, as Metalsucks, Ultimate-Guitar, Spaceuntravel, Lambgoat, HEAVY Magazine, Bravewords, Enigma Online, Hysteria Mag, Metal-Roos, Rock’N’Load Mag, Pete’s Rock Views & News, Insane Blog, Rock You Show, Metalheads Forever, Brutal Planet, Digital Noise Mag.

The Overcoming Project has been played on radio stations Andrew Haug Radio, Triple J The Racket, PBS FM Burning Bitumen, Beautiful Car Crash, and more.

The Overcoming Project – Victory

Melbourne Soloist The Overcoming Project just dropped his crushing new single Victory featuring world-class musicians Mike Heller of Fear Factory and Jon Howard of Threat Signal. Victory is a triumphant closer to the Determination trilogy created as a cathartic release of personal trauma surrounding immigration, a Doctorate degree and Type I Diabetes.

Featuring a relentless and ominous mix of death and doom inspired riffage, spine shrinking breakdowns and fast paced grooves bolstering Howard’s dissonant growls, Victory is sure to please even the most stubborn listeners. Exclusively premiered by Lambgoat, this track is a symbol of refusing to stagnate in the face of adversity & the soundscapes created here represent this with ferocity reminiscent of heavyweights such as Meshuggah and Killswitch Engage.
