  1. Last night, we got to play a benefit show for Darkest Before Dawn on the Darkotica Cincinnati livestream. The host is a great guy and coincidentally, a tremendous Doom fan. Taking full advantage to nerd out with/for like minded company, we made a little-more than elaborate, Doom themed 'stage'. The map is a chunk of one I released in 2016, Warphouse. All kinds of new assets, decorate actors and textures were created for the setup. The lights were sequenced via ACS in the same manner as a traditional DMX lighting rig, with different sequences scripted for each song. A 30 minute set turned into a hell of a lot of typing! The video capture was done with a three camera setup, and the entire room was green screened like a holodeck. Audio was captured from the interface to individual channels via ASIO, and that was piggybacked to a dummy mic input on OBS. The green-screen footage utilized an effect that analyzed the background footage and applied color / light correction to the foreground. We pulled so many tricks for this one; Decorate, ACS, DeHacked, shaders. It's something I've always wanted to do, but completely underestimated how much work it would be.

    Post a picture of yourself!

    Green-screened Doom show calamity.
  3. https://open.spotify.com/track/4q4b8ER7VeyaODszMMW1k3 Grendel prettied up this song on our last album. The guy's got hit-sauce flowing through his veins.
  4. Good luck with your future endeavors! Your photography is top notch and I'm sure you will find success wherever you plant your feet. Thank you for all that you've done in these two decades.

  6. Thank you very much! We've had a lot of fun with it, but it's been like a second job. Suppose that's the way it's supposed to be. We were lucky to have Claus Larsen do that remix for us pretty early on. Grendel did another remix for a release we have planned for late this year. I never thought that would ever happen in any of my musical endeavors.
  7. Me and my wife's musical project. Also, my first foray into video shooting / editing. Shot on my Canon Rebel T6 / 50mm. Green-screened out the garage for the interior car shots, dash mounted my Pixel for the driving / road shots.

    Little man in his hybrid original/Slayer costume. First time I've really worked with EVA foam. It's a pretty forgiving medium.

    More acrylic work.
  13. Trying to make it a weekly thing to write at least one song explicitly for live performance. This is the fruit of this week's labor
  14. I spent Saturday night rewiring the studio to have a more organic, live element to it. A few hours making sequences this morning and came up with this little ditty. Very Frontline Assembly sounding.

    Your first impressions?

    I got the X-Box pre-order and the PC deluxe pre-order. The controller is damn near unplayable, so I switched to the PC. I found myself ramping up the difficulty by the third map. When you really get into the combat rhythm, you can be virtually untouchable if you make the right moves at the right time. Those decisions are thrown at you every 1/2 second during combat. It's extremely satisfying to bounce between hotkey moves, switching to the right weapon for the right situation, knowing what weak points to aim for. I can understand why the game is a turnoff for some players, but Eternal is the ultimate FPS combat experience for me. I love Diablo and was a big WoW fan for a minute. That kind of strategic combat is something I didn't know I wanted in an FPS until I got it.
