Bullet of Reason is a one-man machine combining different sounds and styles, sometimes referring to it as a style of his own. His lyrics can range from relationships to war, religion to the idea of our own demise… while holding nothing back, he grabs influences from different sources all around him & brings the collection together into one solid message.
Well it’s a long time coming but I’m happy to say that the first ever #askBulletofReason segment is up and some of your questions and with what is hopefully the answers you were looking for!
Should this become more of a thing I hope to do one of these at least once a month so feel free to ask some questions through the social media universe (on Facebook and Twitter, here in the comments, on the YouTube channel) with the tag #askBulletofReason and I will do my best to answer all of the questions that come in over time!
You can watch the first Ask Bullet of Reason video right here!
Alright so I’ve been getting messages from a lot of you on my Facebook Page recently concerning a lot of different things… So I’ve decided that now would be the time to do an “Ask Bullet of Reason” segment! So here’s what I need from you… Post your questions in the comments here (or head on over to the Facebook Page and ask your question in the comment section there), and I will start compiling a few of them to answer! I will try to do this as a reoccurring thing because I love interacting with you all as best as possible…. which means I will post more statuses in the future letting you know that it’s about time for another segment and then you can ask away!
For awhile now I’ve wanted to make a specific Halloween inspired track… This year, I’ve gone and done just that. So enjoy this track full of guitar chugs, vocal glitches and chainsaw sfx alongside other Halloween style sound effects.
Just in time for Halloween, you can download Welcome Home for FREE!
I can’t even believe it’s been a full year since Breathing The Machine has been released to the world. An album I never thought I’d finish has already been out there for that long? Well hot damn!
To mark this anniversary, you can get the physical albums and digital copies of Breathing The Machine for 30% off! Head over to my Bandcamp Page where you’ll be able to pick up your copy of the album. Also, with each each physical album sold I will sign them for you!!
It’s about that time where I release another Lost In Circuitry track for you…
I once uploaded a version of this song a year ago, looking for a name. It was a track I originally made for school for a song arrangement project. At the time it was just an instrumental track with a few elements… things have been added since that point.
This was supposed to be the original ending track on Breathing The Machine but as you can see, the only thing I was able to record was the chorus parts… I tried many different variations of verses and when I finally gave up I decided to put it away in the files where it would just sit there waiting to be finished.
Will this track eventually turn into something more than just a chorus vocal track? Maybe? I don’t actually have any plans on doing anything else with it…
Until then (if that ever happens), you can have this!
Embracing our decisions
We look out to our fate
We will stand together
Until the end of time
Facing our opponent
Just you and I
We will stand together
And fight until we die
As mentioned before in my previous post about my live vocal performance of “Pretty Suicide”, I’ve gone and done another performance… this time of “Monster You Created”.
The response from the Pretty Suicide video has been pretty positive so far and many of you wanted to hear more. This is encouraging! I will be doing more of these performance videos in the coming months, amongst all the other things I’m working on.
So here it is, the live vocal performance of Monster You Created!
With a lot of the covers and vocal covers I’ve been uploading (as well as some of my own material), many of you have been asking me to showcase my vocals in a live performance without a lot of processing… just so you can see what it would be like if I were to perform something live. I guess you’re all telling me that you want me to go live? Well, here’s something I put together for you. I decided to go ahead and sing “Pretty Suicide” from the Rebirth – EP as if I were to perform it in a live setting. Yes, there are backup vocals and yes the vocoders are there… but this is essentially an experiment to see what I would need to do should I take Bullet of Reason to the stage. I promise you, the only thing I did with my vocals was remove the main vox from the original session and just sang on top of the music like I was going to record it. And yes, there is a little bit of delay that I bussed out… but there is NO production afterwards. This is what it’s like to hear my live (and for the people who have actually heard me sing or seen me do anything “live” they can back me up on this).
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, here’s me doing a live version of “Pretty Suicide”. I will be performing “Monster You Created” and “Play (One More Time)” very soon for you and probably do a couple of tracks from Breathing The Machine.
Does this mean I’m a step closer to actually bringing Bullet of Reason to the stage?
This song is easily one of the biggest influences behind Bullet of Reason (and back in my DoublEdged days). So I decided to go and cover Powerman 5000’s “Bombshell” as a tribute! You can watch it on YouTube or play it on my SoundCloud and download it for FREE!
Get up! Get up! Get up! Drop the Bombshell Get up! Get up! This is out of control
