First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who has picked up a copy of “Breathing The Machine”. You can still get your copy through Bandcamp, the FiXT Store, CDBaby, and iTunes!
Not long ago I hit a milestone on my Facebook Page of 250 Likes and said that I would have something new to share for you real soon…….. and guess what?
Here’s a preview of my newest track “Monster You Created”, just to prove to you that I’ve actually been working since releasing “Breathing The Machine”
These rusted chain bonded by failure
Wrapped around the wrists of my life taker
But your torment is all in vain
I won’t be the one to die in these restraints
The chains begin to break
The ground beneath you shakes
Opening up to reveal
All of your mistakes
Strike me again
Let me feel my flesh tear
Whip me again
Fuel the one you fear
We fall in slow motion
Entering this world of commotion
This is the life you hated
And I’m the monster you created
We’re always falling
We’re never stalling
So don’t expect me there to help you
When you hit the bottom and need me to save you
I’ve gone in and made a 9 minute preview of all the tracks off “Breathing The Machine” so you can get a quick fix before the album drops on September 17, 2013 (never thought you’d see a release date, huh?)
You can pre-order your copy of “Breathing The Machine” at the following links:
Alright, I’ve decided that the pre orders will go live at midnight tonight (EST)! When you pre order you will get an immediate download of “Annihilation: Start”. There will be the options of a digital album, physical album with digital download, and a Deluxe Edition that features the full album and the instrumentals. For every person that purchases the Deluxe Edition with physical album I will sign it for you when the physical cds arrive. The first 10 people to purchase the standard edition of the album will also have it signed.
Stay tuned later tonight for all the madness!
And thank you all for being so awesome and a part of this experience with me!
It’s coming together very nicely and it’s almost done. Those are words I didn’t think I’d be saying anytime soon…. but it’s true. “Perfect Poison” has been cut from the album, but will not be forgotten. This will give the album a few extra minutes to play around with. “Stand Together” just needs some verse vocals set in place and then I can call it “pretty-much-complete”. Which leads me to some big news about “Slay to Survive”. I’m in the process of rebuilding this track from the ground up, starting it from scratch. But this time with a little bit of help…
As some of you may already know, “Slay to Survive” was originally a track from my old band DoublEdged. It was a huge tune (at least to us) and was possibly our favourite track. So my plan is to gather a few of my old band-mates together to bring this track back to life and essentially build a full length song full of pure rock and metal madness with the essential Bullet of Reason style electronics…
… But that’s not all that’ll be done with this track. I’ll also be looking at YOU for some help.
I’ve decided that the mix I’m working on for “Unfair” is good enough to show you a real quick preview of one of the choruses. When compared to the original track I did a few years back, you can see how much of a difference there actually is……. and I like it! At this rate, the track will be done sometime this year!!!!! YAY!
It’s been awhile in the making…. there’s been a few bumps on the way. Session changing completely, lyrics being re-written. But I can finally say that my newest track “Judas” is ready to take over your ears and scream at you. Chalk another track up for “Breathing the Machine”. Maybe I’ll have the full album ready sometime in the next few years!
Just released my new track “Buildup (Teardown)” over on my SoundCloud page. Why don’t you head on over there (or just click on the SoundCloud widget here on my page) and rock out! It’s what all the cool kids are doing!
I’m extremely satisfied with the new mixes of “Chaotika” and “Black Widow”. I also had a chance to finish the intro to the album and mix it too. Now I will focus on getting “Buildup (Teardown)” completed and then clean up “Breathing the Machine” and “Beyond the Light”. Once that’s done, I’ll go in and revamp “Mechanical Holocaust” and mix “(Sanity) Through the Eyes of the Insane”. “Perfect Poison” would come after that since I’m redoing that one completely. Then it’s off to organizing and mixing “Judas” and then finally completing “Slay II Survive”. Once that’s done I’ll probably get to work on “Annihilation: Start” and then finish off some tracks that have yet to be named…
