The Poison Skies - Stand Our Ground [Apr. 22nd, 2016|11:19 pm]

This is a preview of something I have been aching to show off for a very long time!

"The Poison Skies" is a joint project by me and kjorteo, with artwork by Sparkyopteryx. It's a concept album inspired by the characters and story of Kjorteo's novel "The Afflicted" (and you can read the first chapter of the online edition behind that link). "Stand Our Ground" is the fifteenth(!) track, and is about Jonathan Coral, a character from the story who is determined to keep standing up to the wickedness and madness of the world despite his exile in the wilderness.

Over the couple of years since I released any new songs I've been trying to learn more about music production, graduating from my previous Amiga-style sound (and I have to thank ravenworks for giving me so much advice on vocal mixing). After experimenting with my own vocals on The Day the Night Slept, this is my first fully voiced album - and I hope you enjoy the sound as much as I do!

You can hear the high-quality version of this track on Bandcamp, along with a selection of previews from the rest of the album! I have just a few more tracks left to record - hopefully the full version will be available soon.

The Poison Skies and What Kind of God are my favorite so far, based on the song previews on Bandcamp. I also like Stand our Ground a lot. So far I would say it's my favorite album from you even though it's not out yet. While it doesn't have the 16-bits old school feel from the older albums, it still has your typical style and even background effects which I always loved.

Thanks so much, it's great to see you still around :) I'm definitely really excited about this one - I think that making the leap to Reaper has really opened up new possibilities, bringing my sound closer to what I've always wanted :)
