I just started what may or may not be a one-man band. It's basically black metal, but I like to call it "eldritch metal". After playing punk for almost twenty years, black metal guitar has proved to be very difficult. I'm open to any tips and techniques for playing one-man black metal.

Rewriting a track I did for an online project which I'm part of thanks to this community. It's a whole different kind of challenge as an online project creating songs. It's not as dynamic as in the rehearsal room obviously.

I'm almost finished with the first song of a concept album I'm working on (it just needs one or two more vocal tracks). At first, I hit a snag when I was going for more of a black metal sound (black metal is hard to play when you've never done it), but a friend of mine suggested I just do what comes naturally which (duh) was an amazing idea because I never really fit in any kind of box anyway, and there are instruments everywhere. I decided I would start recording on the anniversary of my father's suicide because it's kind of like Halloween; the veil between life and death becomes very thin, and one of the characters in the album is based on him. The first song kinda sounds like Zao did a bunch of acid with Pavement on Saturn. I'm pretty excited.

Been busy rehearßing, for a micro live gig. Im putting on in June, even though these songs have been released. I still find myself experimenting, with old material. This I will put out as a cd, later this year.

Finally recorded the vocals of one of my funeral doom tracks. The rest of the song was finished, lyrics were ready but didn't got the time / inspiration to record it. I'm happy with the result and I'm currently writing an outro track simply containing sombre riffs and extremely slow. Not sure if I'll include drum and bass to this track. I quess not.

I'm learning how to make my own music. Hope in the next few months I'll become a pro musician. I've already bought Control Surface for Logic Pro X for recording and producing audio, I read reviews on https://whatever-tech.com/best-control-surface-logic-pro-x-review/ before purchasing and decided to try it.

Almost about to release my BM band's debut "album" (might only last for 15 mins), and I'm super pumped. I helped out a bit with the songwriting and contributing backing vocals, but largely did synths. After a year of rehearsals and homemade mixing with Reaper, it feels great to contribute to the metal pantheon. Expecting a release later in June. We might get a small gig as an opening band for a bigger local one, so there's that to look forward to. That said, though I've played live with such a set-up before, it'll feel weird using a tiny-ass MIDI keyboard and a laptop for a metal gig lol.

Released this week my new funeral doom metal album called Doom. Released on CDr for 3 euros, Bandcamp, Spotify and some other services.
Now actually thinking about what's next.
Also working on a slam death metal side project. Still looking for other musicians to record.

Survived a heroin addiction, lost touch with old bandmates and local musician friends (to put it mildy), then lost all my drum equipment in the big LA flood. So now i'm just playing DOOM instead of playing doom haha.

I've started playing guitar again after a 20 year break. I've had my new guitar for about 5 months but have had very little chance to practice due to kids and job demands. I've been on a staycation for 2 weeks now and I've been able to play every day. I've sucked hard over these past months, but now I've been able to get through some old thrash and death songs so that it at least sounds like the same song. I'm sure you've all noticed that playing music makes you appreciate that music even more. I need to find more time!

I know it makes me appreciate it even more. Also I feel it gives me the freedom to make things I want to hear in the combos I think are interesting.

^Right on, Crossed From Existence has a solid intensity. I dig Upon the Mount.

What I'm up to: I put out a big compilation of my material a couple months ago and now I'm in a needless limbo. Lots of partially finished tracks. Lots of songs written and yet to be recorded. Not really doing anything.
I'd like to at least get all instruments tracked for one song this weekend, while also trying to figure out how to better promote my recent compilation.

I finished up instruments for a couple tracks.
I wanted to write and record something totally from scratch, so I did that, too. Good news, it has a different sound than I usually get--intensely dissonant. And I think it's one of my strongest tracks yet. Bad news, I only intended to write a song that was 30 seconds or less and it quickly grew beyond that. I was hoping to track several intense quick songs that I could release soon or put on a split. It's a good problem. Just not what I was aiming for.
