A musical breakthrough…

God knows i needed it! It looks as if the answer to the problem of the vocals clashing with the accompaniments is to simply put a syllable — preferably the vowel — on top of every beat. I’ve been trying it on The Entropy Express and it seems to be working. Not the tight bouncy […]

Poo Bag of Love by Velvet Lizard

Another song from Songs For The Emotionally Bewildered, the album i put out last year.

Originally the album was going to be symphonic metal (specifically Within Temptation) crossed with early Danzig, but I don’t have the big, butch voice required for that kind of thing […]
