For Entertainment Purposes Only

Post by Grindboy on Tue Dec 12, 2017 4:12 pm

Hi CMR --

I did a thing!  As the name indicates, it's not at all serious, although I do think it's both fun and not too bad, for what it is.  Musically, probably melodic/slightly blackened death metal, and lyrically it's a parody of Scandinavian "Winter Metal" in general and Immortal Souls specifically.  It was originally written (and recorded) 15 years ago when I lived in MN and hated the winters as I would listen to Immortal Souls sing about how much they loved Finnish winters.  At the time, however, of course I had ghetto equipment.  With the quality and accessibility of freeware drum machines and audio workstations, I decided to give this another go, and although it's still not perfect it's pretty close to how I would want it at this point.  Free to download from bandcamp if you want, or to enjoy or ignore as you see fit.  Thanks for listening!

Thanks Kerrick.  It was a lot of work, but it was also a lot of fun.  I hope some people will find it fun!

I got a kick out of that.  Well done!  Smile

Love the lyrics.  Anyone who has to live through a frigid, snowy winter should appreciate them.

A new song!  My first attempt at doom/death.  The song turned out "ok," but the video cracked me up, at least.  It's a song about hiking in the White Mountains of NH with my friend Greg, and it's supposed to be fun.  I hope somebody will enjoy!

So. . . Death March didn't generate a lot of traction here (it WAS a hit on a NH hiking facebook forum!), but outside of the fact that this entire thing is an inside joke with myself, this should have at least somewhat more broad appeal.  I'd be thrilled if you'd give it a watch/listen. . . you might enjoy the spirit of the lyrics, you might enjoy the sound of the music!
