No, nothing COVID related at all. I’ve always been a huge fan of grinding riffs and slightly off kilter patterns (eg Helmet and the like). I am a huge Tool fan so that always sneaks its way in there.
This project actually didn’t take me too long in comparision to others. I can’t recall when I started it, maybe a little under a year ago, maybe a litte over, but that;s quick for me. I"m already well underway for the second EP or even Album with one song recorded (an unexpected cover) and two songs done musically including the one I did today.
The cover was one I simply stumbled across on a public domain site. I did, however, question how the title would be taken. So far, seems not to be an issue outside of a few friends saying they are not qualified to listen to it which I thought was funny!
This whole project is about not taking my music playing, lyric writing or lyric content/topics too seriously and just letting it all go. It was and is qute hard to do that, for me anyway, but I think I got most fo the way there. Not saying that the words or content can’t be serious (several of the songs are) but I’m trying not to overthink the lyrics or get on my high horse. Most are based on a mental image, idea, theme or line.
Sorry rambling. Thanks again my man!
