A Message to Myself from the Future

So, I randomly came across this video by a musician artist, Chords of Orion. This video starts out with him saying, “if you aren’t an old fart musician like me… you will be soon“. The fact that he splashes in the Historic Christian message was kind of freaky. It’s as if this is 45 year old me sending me a message from the future or something. It was too ironic not to share. We even dress the same…

 

Rhythm section for first song complete

The three song EP is under way. Although the stuff I am writing isn’t ground breaking, I am having a lot of fun with it. The rhythm section for one song is laid down. I have a friend currently writing some sweeps for the song while I work on writing and recording the second and third song.

On the horizon for A Martyr’s Oath?

With the New Year only a few weeks away a few people have asked me what to expect with the new project next year. Well, now that the studio has been up and going for a bit now, I have become fairly proficient with Cubase 9.5. That in no way indicates that I’m a master at it. Not even close.

What you can expect from me between now and the summer of 2019 is the following. I plan to start blogging more regularly about silly things like music, faith, and politics. It’s not that any of that stuff is relevant to A Martyr’s Oath as a project. But, I enjoy posting about the things that interest me.

As for recording, I feel that I have become familiar enough with the recording software now. With that, my intention with the New Year is going to be to record a three song EP that will be pitched to a few indie Deathcore Labels for release in the summer of 2019. I already have the bones of two songs written. I just need to sit down, refine the songs, and spend time recording a final take for each of those songs. This leaves me with only one song left to do for the final EP. My goal is to have the EP completed by April. This will give me a few months to pitch the EP to various labels before it gets released that summer.

Six New Pages Added to the Site

It has been a long time coming since the conception of this site earlier this summer. But, I finally got around to putting together the church page and its sitter pages. With that, there are now six new pages added to this site.

UPDATE

Rather than lay out a big fat defining blog post that explain each page and why I decided that they are worth adding to the site, I suggest you just take a minute to visit each one for yourself. It was a lot of work putting each page together, but I am glad that I took the time to do it. I still need to go back and read through them all, because there are likely some type errors.

Until I find the time to do that, it is what it is.
