Model required to pretend to hold a phone

Okay, I felt obligated to share this one.

I got my haircut today… and while I was waiting my turn I looked up at the poster on the wall and noticed something. Let’s face it. If you are going to have a person pose for a photo and you want him to look the most natural, you might as well have him doing exactly what you would expect… looking down at his hand as if looking at a phone.

I mean, man… just look at that natural pose.

That’s what I call a naturally born modelling talent right there.

I mean, come on. That’s pretty funny.

Stepping down From Raven Faith Records

downloadAs of today, A Martyr’s Oath and Raven Faith Records has decided that it would be best for AMO to step down as a featured artist with their label. It was a lot of fun working with Kelly over at RFR. We are still on fantastic terms and the decision was a mutual agreement. There is even talk of me still doing graphic design for them here and there in the future when needed to help some of the more DIY artists on the label.

Although this change has occurred, the EP, Ignorance is Woe, can still be found for free on Bandcamp.

Bass Distortion VST Plugins for Cubase

While I am waiting to hear back from labels on the upcoming full length release that Russell and I just finished, I decided to re-organize a few things. As per my previous post, the studio got an overhaul with the new table and case. But, I’ve been doing a different type of organization.

I have been busy moving files and folders around on my computer to make space for future projects. And with that, I created a new recording template using my current mix down on the new full length. However, I want to change things up this next time around. I learned a lot with this upcoming release on the mixing and mastering front. And although I am really happy with how it turned out I am already thinking of a few things I want to do differently on the next go-round.

So, I’ve been looking at VST bass distortion plugins.

I had a particular one in mind a while back, but I can’t remember the name of it for the life of me. I’ve been looking, but to no avail. Today I spent about an hour messing with the presets in Cubase to see what I could come up with. I would really like to get a nice thick Djent tone. I will probably spend the next week or two doing some homework before I decide on one.
