I’ve heard of these guys before, but I just now gave them a listen.  Righteous technical death metal.  Give it a listen if you like the genre!

Just realized I hadn’t mention Saturnian yet.  This band is incredible.  I pre-ordered Dimensions back in 2012 based solely upon hearing Into Etheria.  It was a great decision.  The entire album is absolutely incredible.

It’s a long way off still, but started mocking up a music maker for the Game Boy, which I’ve called Bleep for now.
The other day I made a basic music engine, and I’m looking to expand that into a music tool, with design inspiration from Mario Paint, Wario Ware DIY, and Sound Club.
Here’s a clip of me playing with the sound engine I prototyped, no editor yet: https://twitter.com/Bananattack/status/476948819478065152
The mockup uses to 8x16 tall sprites together to draw the piano, which floats over the musical score in the background layer. The cursor and tooltip bubble are also sprites.

This makes me soooo excite!

This is awesome!  Based on Homesick but without the Ruby dependency.

Beautiful.

Beautiful.

I have a new longest streak on GitHub!

Sped up or not, I still like their music.  Sue me.

S3RL continues to out-do himself this year.

Wretched

Wretched — my best band discovery of the past month! These guys are pretty excellent.

New Things!

Hello friends!

There are many new things in the works at the moment.  There are no less than 4 new Sound & Sorcery releases in the works in addition to some interesting news about artists therein.  :)

Additionally, work has fully engaged into crazy mode.  I’m spending almost all of my time either working or on music — lots of pressure, but hey, you know how diamonds are made!

You can see this is the first time I’ve updated my blog here in a little over a year.  I’m hoping to keep it up this time (am I not always hoping this?).  To make it a more realistic goal, my updates will likely be very stream-of-consciousness and quite unedited.

Let’s do this!

Awesome symphonic metal album with lyrics based on Mass Effect.

ATTENTION PLEASE: Would you buy this as a print? I’m the artist behind this piece and got in contact with IR asking about licensing since a lot of you have asked about it. Let me know by reblogging  and adding whether you would or not. Glad you guys liked this.

Quite awesome.  I particularly like the Luteces.

Heady Metal: Scholars Celebrate a Rock Genre's Cultural Bang

Interesting article about research on metal and popular culture.

Here’s a great cinematic piece that I came across on SoundCloud.

I am a fan of Vocaloid music.  I’d love to use Vocaloid to give some Order of Týr music a little more interesting flavor.  This has to be my favorite Vocaloid song.  It was done using the Megurine Luka character voice.
