So, big news!!! For father’s day me and the old man got together and decided to start a new grindcore band called “The Dads of Doom”, smooth jazz edition. So far we haven’t written anything, but… we did take some band promos, so it’s definitely official.
I’m excited to announce that I got a few new items for the home studio! Check them out!!!
I’ve got a few more essentials that I need to get before I feel like the studio gear is to the point that I want it. However, I feel like the “how I want it” phase of a studio is never ending. You always end up wanting something else (a new guitar, better headphones, a variety of plugins). Speaking of which, my next upgrade for the studio gear is going to be a few vocal plugins since the vocal tracks are my final phase of the current project.
Beyond that, I don’t really have a wish list… yet.
I just wanted to do a quick shout out thanking all of my site subscribers. The project is less than a year old and I have posted less than 100 blog posts to the site. And still, you guys have been generous enough to stop in to check out what’s been happening. I do realize that I could have thousands more followers by using social media. But, I refuse to get on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I’d like to think we’ve all got better things to do than glare at our phones all day. You guys have been great. Stay posted and tell your friends to subsribe. There’ll be a new full length album getting released before the year is out. Don’t miss it.
Yesterday I spent a few hours plastering the above flyer all over town. I hit a few of the Starbucks coffee shops, a few records stores, book stores, and of course… the local Guitar Center. Within the first five hours, even while I was still out posting them, I got a few hits. I’m hoping that this turns into something worthwhile.
If not, I have two options.
One, keep practicing vocals myself and come to the sad truth that my vocal tracks will just end up being very much below the bar of my hopes and expectations for the genre and the release of this new album I’ve been working on.
Or two, I can always just do another Kent Hovind style sermoncore release. To be honest, I am fine with this option, because at the end of the day, this option makes the project less about me and more about presenting the truth.
Regardless of which route transpires, I hope to find some likeminded people of faith to create music with out of this old school promotion attempt. I’ll be sure to post updates on what comes of it as things develop in the coming weeks.
Well, now that my studio is put back together… although I still have a lot to get done around the house, I decided to look online to see about finding a vocalist for my upcoming release. Unfortunately this is where being on things like Facebook would help. But, it’s just not going to come to that. I refuse. The issue isn’t that I couldn’t get onto some super shady forum with posts on it from nearly a decade ago to find someone. I’m sure I could.
This issue is that I am trying to narrow it down to something super specific.
I am looking for a Christian screamer style vocalist that can do things like hardcore, deathcore, doom metal, and or metalcore… preferably someone close to my age bracket. That narrows it down quite a bit. Since I’m not on social media, the next best thing to do would be to post some flyers around the local music stores, I guess.
Any suggestions, feel free to email me from the contact page.
