What I’ve been up too…

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.”

Until next update…

Website Revamp!

After looking at my site for quite some time, I thought it was about that time for me to give it a new look. Changed up the theme, added a new header, and it even now has some fancy links you can click on that look cool and pop up and stuff.

So go ahead and take a look around and click on things and it’ll end up doing stuff! More posts are coming as some new material is starting to take shape so stay tuned! While you’re at it, why not subscribe via email by going to the side there and clicking on the little subscribe button!! Quick and painless.


Lack of updates brings some more updates

Please forgive the lack of updates/postings. It’s been a really busy couple of days. Mostly jumping from one studio to another and essentially keeping Pro Tools open on any screen possible and just diving right into the tunes.

Been pretty busy putting together some new material for Bullet of Reason. I really hope this new stuff rocks your world just as hard as it’s rocking mine. I really can’t wait to show this stuff to you………… wait a second, I already did a little bit on my Ustream account which can be found by clicking this link. I plan on turning on the camera at random times just to see who’s interested in watching me work on some stuff (which I will warn you now is EXTREMELY boring and probably best that you don’t actually watch it). I’ll most likely be posting the next time I plan on doing a Ustream so that you can follow along and watch and even ask questions. Follow my Twitter and Facebook Page for updates on when I’ll be doing a live show. Since I may even be putting the stream up at random, be sure to check back on my pages often. If you haven’t already picked up the Breathing the Machine EP or you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, I strong suggest that you go pick it up in the FiXT Store and let the machine consume your soul!

I’ve also been pretty busy working on new ethereal|Lust material and I can say that we’re both really proud of where this project is going. We really can’t wait to get this full album out to you. If you haven’t already, go pick up the EP in the FiXT Store,on iTunes, or on CDBaby.  More material is coming soon so also head over to our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the updates and shenanigans that we upload.

More updates to come soon my friends…  stay tuned!

EP, ethereal|Lust, PD17 and Step Zer0!

Alright boys and girls here goes…

While the Breathing the Machine – EP is not yet ready for your downloading pleasure I can say that it’s in the final step and will be sent off to FiXT Store over the next few days for them to process and get it up and running in the store.

So why the hell have I been delaying this release? Well, remember how I promised a remix of Chaotika by Martin Harp? Martin ran into a couple studio problems and then moving and then lack of internet. This entire phase made it quite difficult for him to work on and send me the remix. No fault on him (still love you Martin!). I’ve spoke with him and the good people over at FiXT and we’ve come up with a solution…

I don’t want to delay the EP anymore, so I’ll be sending them the EP with 5 tracks (4 originals and 1 remix by Clarck Cunt). Then, when you purchase the EP from FiXT you will be able to re-download the EP once Martin’s remix is complete, free of charge. I will of course notify you of the updated download file so you can go back to the FiXT Store and re-download it. Send me an email with your proof of purchase and I’ll will save it so that when the remix and updated EP becomes available I will personally send you an email telling you to go and re-download the EP from your downloads. If you run into any issues, please let me know and I’ll be sure to sort it out.

With that being said, when can you get the EP? Hopefully in the next week or so! I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as it’s up and running (so stay tuned).

*phew* okay, so part one is done…

As you probably already have heard, I’m also working in my band with the lovely Roxanne in ethereal|Lust. So far, the response has been full of kick ass and positive vibes. We’re both extremely happy that you’ve been enjoying what you’ve been hearing and we promise more to come soon. We’re working on putting together a small little EP over the next few weeks so that you have something else to listen to that isn’t Bullet of Reason.

More details to come. Head on over to our new site at http://www.ethereal-lust.com
We’re also on Facebook and Twitter!

*part 2 down… you still with me?*

You’ve also probably seen based on my most recent posts that I’ve finally brought Platinum Dragon17 back to life with my new track “ReConstruct”. Right now it looks like people are enjoying it which makes me feel confident with bringing PD17 back to life with this style.

I’ve also put the stems up for you to download if you’d like to remix it! You can get the stems here

If you’re remixing the song, send me your finished remix to platinumdragon17@gmail.com or Soundcloud dropbox

*last section, I promise*

Over the weekend I took on the task of remixing Step Zer0’s track “I Will Not Break” and gave it some Bullet of Reason tweaks by adding my own guitar, backup vox and what is apparently full of bad-assery.

Head on over to their website and show some love! You can also join their Facebook Page as an added bonus!

You can go and listen to the song right here.

And that should do it for now! Expect another update over the next few days about the Breathing the Machine – EP and where you can go find it.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go get me some coffee…

ReConstruct is ready… are you?

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet…

I’ve finally released a full on track under my old alias of Platinum Dragon17. I gave you a teaser and a full on listen and download on the beta track, but for those of you who are followers of Platinum Dragon17 or you’re just interested in hearing something that isn’t Bullet of Reason, then allow me to introduce my comeback for PD17.

Here ya go! This is ReConstruct… ready for you to download to your media player and ready to deliver some punches to your eardrums.

PS. The next update that I post here will contain more information on the Breathing the Machine – EP. Just finishing up on the final details and as soon as I have everything sorted out, you’ll know!

PPS. I’m still working on stuff with my band, ethereal|Lust. Go and join the Facebook Page and stay up to date with the epicness!

Breathing the Machine – EP Album Art

This has been a long time coming… sadly, it’s not the actual EP for you ears (yet!).

So since I don’t have the full EP ready to go, I figured I’d at least show you the album artwork. The artwork was done by Ewart K Cameron (who also plays the bassline on Mechanical Holocaust). There was no photo manipulation done here. This was all hand-drawn by him, shaded by him, textured by him….. all done by him! He will also be doing the rest of the album art for the final full length release. There are plenty of ideas that we need to flesh out, but I’m sure it’s going to be a whole whack load of stupid fun!

Here it is! Hopefully the next big update that I have for you is actually the release 🙂
