It is weird contemplating a genre that you don’t like at all, don’t really understand and then trying to think about it in terms of electronic modular music. The only thing I could try and think about is the intensity. That is what I have tried to do. Does it work as metal music? - doubtful. Can I write metal music? - no. Does it work in its own right? - we’ll see.
For once I have used some modules from paid-for Vult collections because they fitted the job
Had similar thoughts about how to tackle metal with a modular approach. But to answer your last question, yes it does work for me. Your driving bassline is a nice touch, brought the music of Faust to mind within seconds!
