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.
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.
It may not be much to look at, but the studio is back up now that we are finally moved. Simple and to the point, I always say.
We still have a lot going on now that we are moved. We’ve had everyone come over that you can think of; electricians, A/C repair, plumbers, fencing people, gas, etc. It’s been an extremely busy last few days for sure… and we still have a long way to go before we’re totally done and settled in.
Either way, I thought I would drop in and slap up a post since I haven’t done that yet this month. Hopefully in the coming months I’ll lock down a vocalist for the 10 song full length release that’s currently just sitting there on my hard drive waiting patiently to be finished.
I would hope that it’s a given, but I’ve got to say… there are a couple of really solid breakdowns on this one.
