The End is Nigh
So yea it's been a bit. I've been busy novelizing and writing and cherishing what precious little free time a man of my nature is allowed to have. however I do always make exception for alleged doomsdays. So in classic DC tradition I waited until there were a mere 5 hours until midnight and began writing a doomsday track. That being said If you click over to the albums section you'll find Epilogue the new End of the world track. I included The Beast rises because I felt it was appropriate. until next Armageddon .
After a bit of issues with a bit of database we were able to recover most of the news, but we lost the last two months worth... oh well... nothing of Real interest has happened since then..
So yea, I've been hella busy lately, moving again, and trying to lay down a few tracks for the new album, and while I've got a bunch of new tracks ready, I'm not releasing them just yet. But since the Occupy the globe movement is coming to a head today I figured I'd Hook it up a bit, check the new track in the WIPS. Civil Unrest is up now... and there's more to come, maybe I'll update it again later... we'll see... until then
The Black city Is up again, Basically It's a loose continuation of Fiend... I'll explain more eventually maybe, probably not... that being said you have precious few options here. Enjoy//Choke...
Deface your shit properly
Head Over to Deviant Art and Grab the 'Official' DeadCrows wallpaper so you can Deface your shit properly...
And Be sure to spread it like it's viral...
you know how we do...
on that note...
A wild Remix appeared!!!
So I was working on a track with my brother the other day and I really liked the beat he had going, well today I Was fucking with the melody and thought 'why not just toss one of my new melodies over it?' stfu I'm lazy, don't judge me... anyway I did... and It would have stopped there, had he called me like he promised to do... but he didn't... and so it didn't stop... and now there's a remix that keeps growing...and growing... and... Oh god there it is Run..
Dirty Dirty Dirty....
So yea Umm... Nothing really going on, Still toying with some ideas for distribution and album art, but trying hard not to neglect the music too.... Tossed up a new track called Dirty (because I couldn't really think of a good title) anyway... you know the drill...
The End of the world and Endgame.
Well... According to the book that they've based all of this Apocalypse BS on, it's impossible to predict the Date of said Apocalypse, but you know I like to keep all my bases covered (and even though I checked the tokyo traffic cams and they're still here)I wrote a quick song about it... Check out Endgame. It's in WIPS... hurry the end is neigh (supposedly)...
Ok so hopefully my internet will not eat this post (I'm backing it up just incase this time). Now I had mentioned last time that I Had gone ahead and created some new crow logo shirts, and logo'd my lunch kit etc etc just testing the waters seeing how I feel about my logo in terms of clothing... so far, I'm pleased (though spray on fabric paint fades and It leaves me sad...) moving on, Last Wip track I uploaded was Reflections that bleed, it was supposed to be a nod to the older Dead crows stuff, as is the new song I'm uploading right now, Visions. I thought I'd try to get back to what I used to do while maintaining the new hotness that I seem to have found...
TL//DR: Shirts are comfy, new Wips.
Reflecting on Reflections
Well I made a long drawn out post about the new song, something about how it's supposed to be reminiscent of the original dead crows shit. and blah blah also New DC shirts and stuff... but it got eaten by the internet... FU i'm not reposting it I'm tired SMD... new tracks up, more to come,
Enjoy//choke ~ Angry/sleepy/Griff...
Sleep and Tyranny
Sleep, I need more of it... Busting ass at work, and busting ass at home... means there's little ass left when it comes to resting said ass... Tyranny, I has some of it. As in more than my usual dominative dose, Check the Wips section for the new sample... I really liked it... Man I need to get to work on this new album... Oh well days off coming up, Don't expect much..
New Wip is up... I'm kinda pleased with it... expect to hear it finished on a new album... sidenote: I'm currently working the theme for the new album... gotta say i'm a little excited by it... anyway I don't want to give away too much... but check out the track.
Enjoy//be vaporized ~Griff
Echos, and Labs
In between wasting time, and work, I've managed to begin the process of cobbling together a few new tracks. Echos and Lab 01 have been uploaded and can be found in the Wips section below. Echos is mainly me playing with a sample from freesounds.org and Labs was me mucking about with rhythm. you know how I do. anyway gunna cut this short so I can get back to it... Enjoy//choke ~ Griff..
Dub, Mz, And time travel
Time Travel, you can never quite wrap your head around it... That said I've got to remember to keep from posting messages that I haven't posted yet... Spoilers and such... Anyway Dub is a new track(that I'm probably never going to finish) ((SUCK IT)) mainly because the project file saved in a weird way, and now the song is nearly irrecoverable... maybe I'll experiment with dubstep later. maybe... I need more booze. anyway... moving on... MZ, once again, thank you. for the site, the tools, and the critiques... You've been one of the biggest (and often times ONLY) supporter(s) of this fanciful project from the start. rest assured it does not go unappreciated. In any event I've got to go right the space time continuum and choke a project file for not existing properly... As always enjoy//choke ~Griff.
Happy 420 Suckas
Dropped a pair of 420 tracks for you guys. Figure if I can't smoke least I could do is make something for those of you who can. Happy 420 guys!
Enjoy//smoke - Griff
Satisfy Your fiendish side.
New album drops today, Fiend is already ready to be consumed by the masses (or in this case the not so mass masses). anyway feel free to grab a copy. sidenote: full redesign was accomplished thanks entirely to the help of the one and only Mzeora. (who proceeded to scold me about my abuse of the mysql Db). That said, feel forced to visit his site over at EOV
untill next time Enjoy//Choke - Griff
Soooo, yea... Originally I was going to title this post "Not dead yet" only to realize I've already used that one.... Don't judge me!!! I've been busy, But not with my music. I've devolped a few things for a nameless 3rd person shooter that we all know and love, Maps mostly but a few other tweaks here an there... anyway that aside I've also been tinkering with Portable web design, and I've been carefully considering some things. I.e. Making this site a LOT more mobile friendly. If/when I get around to doing so you'll know. anyway this was mainly just an update letting you guys know I got another new host. the old one was old. and dusty. So yea.. /upgrade... with any luck I'll pump out some more tunes for you kiddos later, and maybe then you'll have something to choke on...
untill then contemplate//Choke - Griff
New host+New House=New excuses for no new news.
What? Don't judge me, mathmatically it's sound. We made the big move fine, not like any of you knew we were moving, because the post I made about it never got made, because I swapped hosts before the move... And Couldn't post it... SO, if you didn't know before we'll be moving a week ago, and I'll be changing hosts a two weeks ago... I know I've been lax with the updates again, but don't fret too much, I'm off this weekend (How that happened I don't know.) I'll be updating then, several new demos, and maybe some other stuff, who knows. anyway, see you then Anticipate//Choke - Griff
Edit: Ok, you called my bluff, I can't leave you with nothing to chew on... so here's a taste of something I've been toying with, it's Currently called Sinthetik Enjoy//Choke, for real this time k? - griff
Animus Refero, Unfortunate news, and annoyance.
So I spend a day and a half working out this demo, thinking it's going to be amazing... and it's not bad that much is for sure, but I go to upload it, Success! Then I add it to the database with my code stick... SUCCESS!! then I try to download the Ogg... Fail! Wait what?...... Hmmm... so I rename the Ogg in my ftp, or I try to. "Sorry, this file doesn't exist" O.O' Really? I have a void on my ftp? it eats oggs? AMAZING!, but no. Turns out my host only lets me upload files under 4Mb... No big deal or anything (Considering it's free and all) so today I bestow upon you, ANIMUS REFERO! My newest track. enjoy//choke... meanwhile, I'll be busy choking an ogg file for not existing... excuse me, -Griff.
Maelstrom demo, Ogg, and your mother
Two posts in the same week, how you like me now?! I was tinkering with something and My computer spit this at me... It's a track that Isn't finished infact right now it's a 30 second demo, But I liked it so much I had to post it... Now that I have I'm sure I'll never finish it and will eventually just toss it in a random half assed album as a filler track and it will never get the true time//effort it deserves. BUT It's the thought that counts right? It's also in Ogg for my enlightened Corvian brethren. enjoy//choke...
Not dead yet
So I've been tinkering with some 8 bit stuff again, seeing if I can manage to write something that sounds close to music. I also have some rather abstract Ideas that I intend to unleash eventually, but you know how that goes. Anyway I'll be adding new tracks to the Wip section for a while. Enjoy//choke, Oh also the album art is missing from FFOF for a reason, the reason being, I'm lazy. Don't like it? Make me some cover art. You know where to find me. // The griff.
New Site Design
Well Comrads A new site, and A new domain... I think things are looking up for your favorite crow,Since the new site layout is up and running I've got to get all that wonderfull noise up here so you can pretend to like it (as to avoid choking) so for the next week or so I'll be tinkering with the databases adding in tracks and albums slowly moving things around so if something isn't working or isn't quite right, be patient. odds are it's me poking something with a codestick.
Thank you MZ
Michael N. Esposito II, A long time friend of mine. has come to the rescue yet again, he's one of the few ,if not the only, person who has been behind me with this project from the begining. He helped me print, and produce the first two ablums and has been a willing (although often times captive) audience to my less than polished musics. And now he's out done himself yet again, This wonderful new layout is all thanks to his ingenious scripting. If you'd like a site by MZ check the footer I've included his email, and now to do him a favor, [Shameless_Plug] If You're into movies, books, games, and more check out the Eye of the Vortex (http://www.eyeofthevortexonline.com) Thanks again mike.
Oh yea, almost forgot, Enjoy//Choke.
