1st iZ LaZt fully up and ready

I finally got everything straightened out at The Internet Archive. The album is now fully uploaded in multiple formats as single files, and as a whole zip folder download in two formats (VBR 192kb and lo-fi 64kb).

1st iZ LaZt

The more I listen to my own album, the more happy I am with it. Granted that there is only one "guitar solo" on this album, but I think the album works overall as a cohesive symphonic rock ensemble recording. It's mellow in parts, but not too sappy or new-agey - at least I don't think so. There's plenty of heavy rhythm guitars "chunking" away, along with mucho double-bass drums, so it should be "metal" enough.

Maybe.

I also like my "cover tunes". Hopefully I won't get into any trouble. I'm not selling them or making any profit. I want to pay tribute to these artists for their various contributions to music.

Hey, while I'm here, let's get an update/ego boost of my album downloads at the Internet Archive, shall we. I need an encouraging pat on the back.

Bryson's Universe - 3,588
Aetherial Art of Decay - 2,937
Leprosia Doom - 1,592
I Am Become Daevel - 1,382
Improvisations for the Ancient Ones - 771
End of an Era - 669
Ugotllathath - 530
Loco-motives - 370
Deus Fetor, Pt 2 - 356
Cyberthief Strikes Again - 73
1st iZ LaZt - The Daevellation Suite - 63

Wait, does that mean that my albums have been downloaded a total of 12,331 times?  Dang! Now imagine if I actually posted these at CD Baby and charged for 'em?  Nah, then nobody would buy 'em.  I'm glad to let'cha'll have 'em for freebie.  I greatly appreciate anyone who actually puts forth the effort needed to wade through my catalog of atonal crapola.

That's all for now. As I said before, I may be taking a little break from creating any new music for a while. I might actually use this blog like a blog, i.e., do some music reviews, and give some shout-outs to other artists/bloggers whom I admire and enjoy.

That's all for now. ThanX.

I appreciate the sharing. Grabbed "Ugotllathath" after reading about it in Decibel Magazine. All the best.

Check the demo section ("Throw Me a Frickin' Bone") of the current Decibel magazine (Amon Amarth cover).

Whoops, didn't see that someone else already alerted you to that :) Sorry for the repeat.

Decibel Magazine, really - I'll have to go to Barnes and Noble and buy it. Cool.
