Here is one of my first attempts at scoring for a visual project. My good friends at Maven Creative had me take a stab at Shosen’s “First To Attack” trailer a few years back, and I’m not sure If I’ve shared it properly with everyone. It was a good way to jump head-first into scoring.
As created and filmed by Trivium Japan, here is a short 30 minute film on the 2112 solo acoustic performance. It features chats with myself and my Swedish friends, and clips of many of the songs performed. Enjoy.
This track was written and produced by myself; it features Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth) on lead vocals, Mike Smith (Suffocation) on drums, Sean Malone (Cynic) on bass, Justin (3 Inches Of Blood) on guitar, me on guitars, Jason Suecof on piano.
I’m not sure who missed this album or this track (or the other 4 tracks I appeared on (3 I wrote, 1 I sang on that Dino (FF) wrote)), but this is certainly one of my favorites from the whole session. Black Metal has always held a very special place in my heart – and it was a terrific experience to be able to create my interpretation of the genre with some of the best musicians from the Extreme-music field.
Check out the death metal band I was in with virtuoso songwriter/producer Jason Suecof (Audiohammer Studios), phenom-guitarist/singer from one of my favorite bands on earth – Daniel Mongrain (Martyr), quite possibly one of the best drummers I’ve ever recorded with – Jordan Suecof, and Mike Poggoine from Monstrosity (bassist of Trivium for a tour as well).
This was recorded right around Ascendancy (I can’t remember if before or after), I was about 17/18 years old.
