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.
This morning, before taking off to do the Mother’s Day festivities, I put together a real quick youtube video for the first release I did once the new home studio was put together. It isn’t anything super fantastic. But, I did find out that I can put these simplistic videos together for free with an existing app found on my PC. So… that’s pretty cool.
I have ten new songs in the works. Once we get totally moved in to the new house I will be working toward releasing my first full length album in nearly a decade. I am pretty excited about it. Other than this, I still have a lot to learn about how to do the back end editing in Cubase.
Two new reviews came rolling in today. One of them came from Total Metal Onslaught Magazine. While the other one came from the For Good Reason Music Group.
A Martyr’s Oath just dropped a three song EP called “Ignorance is Woe” and all I can say is I’m intrigued. This is the first time hearing these genres mixed. I am a fan of spoken word tracks but this sermon jam over hardcore really mixes things up. Released through Raven Faith Records, these tracks mix Pat’s original music with sermon excerpts from Dr. Kent Hovind. This is Pat’s first release in seven years and I think this release will definitely get people talking about him again. I look forward to see what he has in store for the future. These songs can be downloaded for free on Bandcamp or can be listened to on Youtube. Go check out his website for more information about what Pat and his band are all about! – FGRMG
Random thing happened to me this week. I have a few evangelists that I really like. One of which, is Dr. Kent Hovind. Now, I am not going to suggest that I agree with him on every single thing. But, I definitely recommend checking out some of the lecture series and debates that he did back in the early 2000’s. Here is an example of one of the debates. Where did God come from?
He answers the question with eloquence and assurance. You’ve got to love that. Anyway, supper random thing this week. I sent an email out to his ministry asking for some book suggestions. And randomly, I ended up with the man’s personal cell phone number.
Here is a link to his older lecture series on creation vs. evolution. CLICK HERE
Anyway, it was really cool to talk with him. He is a really down to earth, dude. We need more people like him out there doing what they can to fight the fight in favor of God’s word.
