Firestarter by The Prodigy Rhythm this is a fairly fast song at roughly 140 bpm It is in 44 timing Orchestration arrangement Instrumentation The song starts off with a drum hit and a heavily effected guitar riff It is a very sharp sudden start to a song giving it a dramatic and in your face feel to it The guitar is drenched in flange distortion reverb and chorus effects to make it sound weird and a little disturbing to the ear that adds to the weird nature of the song The drums are fast and stabbed to generate a violent rhythmic feel In the background you can hear a swelled deep bass sound keeping a pulse on the first beat of every bar because it has been put through an envelope filter and the attack setting has been set high it fades in quite slowly making it seem off beat and out of time which gives the effect of the song being very fast but also quite slow and sinister at the same time In the background you can hear a faint guitar line that is also saturated in effects and there is a lot of reverb and a LFO filter on it to take out the high end of the effect so it sounds distant and as if it were being played in the next room After 8 bars this starts to increase in volume and the LFO is opened up after 14 bars to make it come to the front of the mix at the same time the druming kicks in this and the distorted heavy guitars that play a stabbed part that starts in bar 7 all increase the creepy haunting feel this song has In the 22nd bar there is a vocal sample of the word hey that has a delay on it and pans across the stereo spectrum In bar 29 there is a reversed vocal
