Plagues of Aegyptus on YouTube

That's right folks, I've completed my first video project by making some very simple videos to all the songs on my album, "Plagues of Aegyptus" and posted them on YouTube.

Plagues of Aegyptus on YouTube!!

No, I did not make "music videos" where I'm jumping around with my guitar and lip-syncing and air-guitaring with the music.  I just found a bunch of weird pictures through Google Images that I thought appropriately fit the songs and used Windows Movie Maker to add them to the music. Voila.

Please note that I do not take any credit of ownership to any of the pictures used.  Big disclaimer there. I do not want to cause any copyright infringement issues. I just thought that these pix really represent the music content well.

I think this project translates into video very well, mainly due to the conceptual content. Not all of my music does that. But I might try adding more videos to Dimaension X music. Not I can assault your eyes as well as your ears.

Imagine a hybrid of Godflesh, Summoning, Morbid Angel and Evoken. Now throw in some Sunn O))), Boris, and Thorr's Hammer. I've also be listening to some experimental drone by Scott Lawlor with narration from Rebekah Hilgraves, and an interesting project called Hibernal, which often features narration and spoken interludes mixed in with the atmospheric music.

Halloween is just around the cornier, kids, and imagine this playing real loud as the kiddies are coming up to the door for candy (insert evil laugh here).

Based on the Ten Plagues of Egypt from the Book of Exodus, we have my musical interpretation of these strange and dark events. Sure, you've probably seen the old movie “The Ten Commandments”, but let's imagine it from the Egyptians' point of view. A traitor to the Royal family becomes a dark and powerful wizard, and comes back to seek revenge upon them and steal their labor-force by placing a series of ten evil curses upon them. Okay, that's probably not very politically correct, but this is doom metal, folks. It's supposed to be a bit controversial. And let's face it, … a lot of the subject matter of the Bible can be downright violent and not very civilized.

So, … on to the technical stuff … I decided to tune a few of my guitars in Drop-A. Yup, Drop-frikkin-A. That's pretty low for a non-baritone guitar, and takes some very thick strings, but it sounds cool, especially through a good amp sim of either a Marshall or Mesa amp.Now the music is not pretty or poppy or catchy at all. It's a bit muddy, thick, messy, but if you like any of the bands listed above, you might like it. And the “vocals” came out pretty cool, too. If you need an online text-to-speech converter with a LOT of vocal options, try Acapela Box (https://acapela-box.com/AcaBox).  I used the voice called “Will (Bad Guy)” that I thought sounded perfect for the narration.
