Update #11 - Album Prototype

Hey guys,

This is pretty much just a repository of my work at this point. Or at least the part of my work that's people-friendly. Still, as astronomically late as this update is, it's a pretty big one. Here's the finished version of a cover I did of Dimholt - a Bulgarian black metal band, who also happen to be good friends of mine. My version is different, though, to say the least. This song is very special for one other reason. I've started work on my first solo album and it's pretty much the prototype of what the album will sound like. I've barely started on it, but I'm really excited about it.

Also, the sound on this prototype wouldn't even be possible with the huge amount of help that a friend of mine, Lyubomir Stefanov, provided. The man's an absolute genius, that's all I can say.

And the other update is a collaboration I did with YouTube DooM Cover Master elguitarTom. Check him out, his covers are brilliant!

Update #10

Hey guys,

A couple of friends and I got together yesterday to try out how well my new microphone would record a live acoustic set, so I've got some recordings for you. One of them is actually a teaser for a song the three of us are working on and which should be released within a week or two. The final recording obviously won't be acoustic, but we got requests from friends to record an acoustic version, so here it is, along with a few covers.

Update #9

Hello again!

Welp, got something special today. Just picked up my new Rode NT1-A microphone and I was really eager to try it out. And I've also had the Rains of Castamere in my head all day, so I figured I'd just record a quick a capella version of the song. The microphone is absolutely amazing, even if my singing isn't all that. Anyway - enjoy!

Update #8 Collaboration Edition

Hello everyone!

Well, I'm back from the dead. Work and lack inspiration have sapped what little life this blog might have had in the beginning. But hey, this is as much a blog as it is a database of all my music. So, here's the latest addition! How many of you have heard of Andy Rehfeldt? Chances are, you've heard of his smooth jazz version of Metallica's Enter Sandman, or his "radio disney" version of Cannibal Corpse's Hammer Smashed Face. If you haven't heard of him, you're in for a treat! So, I recently got in contact with him and offered my services as a death metal vocalist. And a very short time later, here's the result!

Update 7

Hello, everyone!

It's been a while with no updates, but that was pretty much it for my listenable back-catalogue, so these last two post mark the transition into completely new stuff. I only just finished working on this piece and I'm really happy with how it sounds. Has a sortta pre-classical feel to it. Anyway, enjoy!

Super Special Awesome Special Cool Update 6

Hello everyone!

I've got a really special update for you guys today. It's my very first commissioned song! For those who know me, I'm sure it'll be quite a surprise, and for those who have actually read anything on the blog, you'll know that I'm trying to branch out into more positive-sounding music. I think I succeeded with this song, it's pretty upbeat and, I hope, it prepares you for a fun time. The lyrics are pretty tongue-in-cheek, too.

This is the intro for Jesh Nyx' internet review show on - Movies in Bed. He's only got a few episodes out right now, but they show a lot of promise and he's a really cool guy, so I hope he gets loads of views. You can find this video and his blip channel right here. Show him some love, guys!

Update 5

Hello everyone!

Time for some more shameless plugs! Here we have two more songs off the band Bloodlines'(Facebook) demo. Hopefully by the end of the year we'll have entered a proper studio to record our debut album. In the meantime, enjoy these terrible-quality demo recordings!
