Furious Sound- One Month Later

Okay, maybe more like a month and a half. Furious Sound, my new podcast on Radio Free Satan, is seemingly doing very well! I'm getting nice engagement from listeners so far. As this is my first podcast, I don't know what to compare it to in terms of "success" but I'm excited enough to keep pushing forward at full speed. I'm releasing an episode a week at this point, which has been slightly difficult as putting together the playlists seems to be the most time consuming task. I'll re-evaluate the episode schedule after Hallowe'en.

Here is Episode #007 for you to check out! Furious Sound #007

Cheers!

Furious Sound Podcast

Great News! I just launched a brand new podcast on Radio Free Satan! It's called FURIOUS SOUND, and I will be playing a selection of punk and hardcore songs from the last 40 years. 

Tune in HERE!

Cheers!

New Single Released!

"Waiting For Longer Days", my latest single, has just officially released today! Here is the CDBaby link for purchase, or you can stream it at the usual sites like Apple Music and Spotify.

You may recognize the song from the video that has been playing in the background of the site for the last while. I've since remixed and remastered the song for the official release. At this time, I don't anticipate the song being a part of a future album so that's why I decided to make it a one-off single.

Thanks for reading and listening!

Welcome To 2017...?

2017. Should be a boring year, right? In honour of rational self-interest, I'm planning to be even more selfish and insulated from the outside world this year. Is this even possible? Let's find out!

I'm currently working on a scoring project right now, with an eye towards a late April release. I'll post about it at that time. As you may have noticed (and if you've visited here enough to notice...I love you!) I did a somewhat minor revamp of the site as of today. While I'm uber-appreciative of everything I've been able to do through CDBaby and HostBaby over the last 7 odd (!) years, I must say I feel like some of the features have become a little stagnant. It would be nice to get more template updates from HostBaby, in particular.

As for original music, I'm still in a holding pattern. Writing is happening, but not enough to really call this slump over. In the meantime, and to satisfy a creative itch, I did a couple of lyric videos for some old Crossed Streams songs. Below is one for "Thirsty, So Thirsty", which you may notice (I love you!) that I edited out the intro. It's not a bad intro, but as the years go one I really wish I had just blasted that song out from the fast part. So, a little revisionist history is at work. I hope you dig it.

Cheers!

Matt


Happy Hallowe'en!

Happy Hallowe'en!

It was a great thrill for me to have my song "All This Work" appear in the Hallowe'en episode "Fueled By Sex and Sin" by the Satanic Players Society! Here is the link to have a listen, and give them a like on Facebook or a follow on Soundcloud if it pleases you.

Destroy!” by Down Among The Dead Men and “The Feared Religion” by Echelon. Special thanks also goes to Larry Bradley Photography for providing us with the image of the lovely Ophelia Rain for the cover art."

Behold! ChillPatch Records!

Breaking News! Well, sort of. As of literally less than two hours ago, I've founded a label! "ChillPatch Records" will be the official banner for all of my releases, but hopefully I'll get to release some music or spoken word from other independent acts. That's the plan anyways. Check it out!

New 'Video' Tab!

Just a quick note...I added a new 'Video' tab just below the Bio link. If I may kiss Host Baby's arse for a moment, it's a splendid addition to the site capabilities...

Still working on the new Crossed Streams EP, but also finished a short orchestral collaboration that I'm hoping to make a video for sometime soon...

Spring is friggin' here, finally...

2016 Plans

It's already over a month into 2016 (during the EASIEST Ottawa winter ever!) and I'm finally getting into some serious songwriting again. I'm currently working on a Crossed Streams EP that I hope to release this spring. Here's a short video of some of the rhythm guitar tracking for a song called "The Lone Wolf"... 

 

New! Hammer Smashed Radio Christmas Comp!

Check out Crossed Streams, and a ton of excellent bands, on the third edition of the Hammer Smashed Radio Christmas Comp!
