I can't remember if I've asked this before or not, but I would like if someone with a working knowledge of music theory could breakdown what the heck is happening in the intrumental break of Deathless.
The base of the song is in standard 4/4, I understand that. But then the first part of the instrumental passage starts in 16th notes playing in a pattern of 1,2,3, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4. At least, that's the way I hear it. I mean....it doesn't sound like a standard beat.... is that then 12/16? Or are they switching between 5/16 and 7/16? Also, what is that back rhythm that the bass and keyboards start playing when the guitar comes back in with the main 4/4 riff? It's just freaking SICK when they do it, but I get lost.
