I took Mary Poppins' classic "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and mixed it with Andy Rehfeldt's metal version. The original song was downtuned a few semitones; and a few snips were made for the sync to be maintained. And I added a slight channel separation so it wasn't a flat mash of noise.

Phase the Blood

A Slayer-style riff played on one guitar and a version of that riff that has an extra half beat so that the two parts are not in phase, Steve Reich-style. [more inside]

A Goddamn Avalanche

This is a thrashy proggy tune that's been brewing in my head for a few years. Guitars, bass, drums, and some Korg Minilogue synth giving it a Cult of Luna-ish feel in spots. [more inside]

Mouth of the Coldest Seas

A tribute to the ancient hidden source of all cold seas and those that watch over it. With vocals by my friend who sings in an actual early music choir! It's also got square waves, organs, and sometimes ambiguous chords.

Leaden Resolve

Mournful sludge/doom/noise rock. This is the first heavy tune I've composed in quite a few years, and I suppose it's my attempt to rationalize the current state of world affairs through a Neurosis-esque filter.

New and much improved mix of a song from a few years ago. Kinda rock-metal-electronic fun with a pretty good helping of vocal harmonies. Critique away!

Nail-Eyed Totems

I've always liked how for a time, rather than having something play over the PA, Sepultura had their own intro that they stood in the dark playing as the lights came up. I think of this as my own intro and have been using it to pump myself up for various onerous tasks today.

Beauty of Love

This song is from the band I have been with for the longest, LOX-P, and was recorded at the same studio and under the same conditions as the last song I posted, War Waltz. On this recording I am the bass player, however I wrote the guitar line as well. Hope y'all like it. [more inside]

War Waltz

"The tribes of war are rising again, they're brutal and raw and lying the same" That's my favorite line of this song. Warning: turn your volume down it's quite loud ;) The song was recorded in one day and mixed on the next along with 2 others for the band's first demo Cold Day Waltz. [more inside]
