Long Time, No Post
Musically, not much has changed. I have written a few more riffs that I am currently working into songs. I am still jamming with TJ though we are making zero progress. We have yet to find a bassist or vocalist and it seems as though he is uninterested in working on the music we have written. I am going to give it another month or so and if no progress is made by then I am going to abandon ship, take my music and do a one man recording project until I can get back into a heavy metal band. Discussions of an Enshrined reunion have come up again though I doubt that anything will come of it, mostly because of the lethargic attitudes of the other guys. There were two tentative jam/rehearsal dates set to reunite the original line-up of the band, sans the two weakest members, but each of those dates fell through because of poor scheduling and miscommunication. At this point I am just about ready to give up on the whole rock/metal band idea until Sasha and I move to Seattle. Perhaps once I get there, I will find what I am looking for.
On a separate note, I do not expect to produce any more doom metal podcasts. I simply do not have the time to do them any more. With a wedding to plan, school to finish, job searching, and salvaging my music career, I cannot take the time to put together those podcasts. I hope that those of you who listened to them enjoyed them. Hopefully there are other people out there doing it and keep promoting the doom metal scene.
Oh yeah, I must not forget to announce that Candlemass has found a new vocalist!!!!! The new lead singer for Candlemass will be Solitude Aeturnus' Robert Lowe. Some of you may recognize that band from the Epic Doom Metal podcast I did featuring the music of Candlemass and Solitude Aeturnus. This is great news for Candlemass. Robert fits their style perfectly. I expect the new album to be killer! Congrats to Rob and Cnadlemass.
Well that just about wraps it up for now. I will try to post more often, at least once a week if not more.
