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
One of the reasons why I got into making my own music was actually because of “Savage Garden” way back in the day… I figured it would be fitting that I make a cover of one of my favourite songs by Savage Garden and give it to you as a freebie!
It took a lot of courage to go in and cover this tune, but I finally did it… and I’m happy to say that I’m proud of it! It’s a FREE download so why don’t you go and grab yourself a copy of it and jam it right into your ear holes?!
And here’s some album news……..
It’s done… ‘Breathing the Machine’ is finished… ready to be put to CDs and start delivering it to YOU! I will be revealing the album artwork sometime this week on my Facebook Page as well as the full tracklist, and then updating it here later.
I’m just a little excited…… and relieved (but mostly excited)!
I got into a conversation with one of my classmates today and decided that I should cover Alex Clare’s track “Too Close”. It’s such a beautiful track full of raw power and emotion, and I felt that it would be pretty damn fun to cover it. So in a mad 5 hour music marathon, I went into my studio and started to plug away at it, where I tried to stay true to the original as much as possible while maintaining a Bullet of Reason style on it. Here’s the final product, mixed and mastered, and ready for your listening and downloading pleasure. Go to my SoundCloud page where you can snag yourself the mp3!
Simple answer to the title of this post….. yes, yes I am.
I’ve really considered covering the original version of the track for awhile now and I finally built up the courage to actually start working on it and eventually decided to take it The Complete Cellout way. It’s still very rough and needs the vocals (which will be fully recorded soon) and then it will be ready for mixing (unless I decide to either scrap the entire thing or want to add more to it….. who knows….)
Been a little while since I’ve really done any updating here so here goes:
I’ve been busy working on new material….
Yep, that’s really about it! I’m hoping to get the title track for “Breathing the Machine” done this week. What you’ll hear may be the final version, however since I’ll be going to school this January for audio engineering I’ll probably end up going back to the project and remastering the whole thing all together…… hell, I’ll probably end up doing that to all my tracks I’ve released so far. That way when the full album drops, everything will be nicely mastered to something both you and I can actually enjoy.
Other than working on Breathing the Machine, I’ve been occupying my time with my other alias Platinum Dragon17. I’m in the process of bringing that project back to life but in a different way than just as a solo artist. I’m going to be taking that bad boy to the stage…. well…. DJ booth would be more like it. I’m still going to be working on my own original material, but it will primarily be focused as my DJ name.
Speaking of live…. some of you have been asking when the hell will you see Bullet of Reason kick some ass live! You know, that’s still a very good question. I’m hoping to have some stuff sorted out early next year in regards to how I can even bring my show to life…. stay tuned and keep pushing me on getting it up and running so that you can see me go bat-shit crazy on stage while jumping from guitar to mic to keyboard to whatever else I need to make a Bullet of Reason show possible.
If you haven’t already picked it up, head over to my SoundCloud page and download my FREE cover of Katy Perry’s “E.T.”
It’s done and it’s ready for your downloading and listening pleasure! This is really the first time I’ve ever actually done a cover on my own and I gotta say that it was quite fun and challenging. So because you’re all awesome and got my Facebook Page to 100+ Likes, I’m going to deliver what I promised.
Also, don’t forget that I’m doing a pretty sweet charity event. I’ll be gaming for 24 hours for the SickKids Hospital here in Toronto. All the proceeds raised go to the hospital for the kids. You can find all the details on our Extra-Life event page and even join us on Facebook for all the updates on our LIVE 24 Hour broadcast of the entire event.
