”…riff-driven slab of somber doom, dense grooves with rhythmic enchantments, and detonating drum play.” – Dragon (Metal Nexus)

The new album “Death Will Flee” from wytCHORd is loaded with heavy riffs and the powerful vocals of Vince Green (THAL) who sounds like the offspring of Neil Fallon and Glen Danzig. In addition to his vocal work on the album, Vince Green and fellow guitarist David Jones (Black Mountain Creeper) deliver crushing fuzz-laded grooves driven home by hard-hitting drummer Kevin Hartnell (Trinity & Triage). Fans of bands like Black Sabbath, Clutch, Kyuss, and Queens of the Stone Age are sure to find something on “Death Will Flee” to embrace!

wytCHord is: Vince Green · Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Lyrics | David Jones · Rhythm & Lead Guitar | Kevin Hartnell · Drums – Formed in 2016 – For bookings, interviews, promos, or additional questions, please email wytchord@gmail.com.

“Kraken Mare: The Score”

Kraken Mare ArtworkKraken Mare: The Score

On November 10th, Matthew McLean from YAP Audio Production and the Audio Drama Production Podcast contacted me needing someone to score his latest audio drama. I gladly accepted the offer and began working on music for his excellent science fiction/horror story “Kraken Mare.”

What is “Kraken Mare” about? “Nine years ago the Wells-Dyson satellite picked up images of what appears to be some sort of wreckage on the floor of Titan’s biggest hydrocarbon ocean – Kraken Mare. The discovery prompted eccentric billionaire Jennifer Barrie to fast-track an expedition to the mysterious moon of Saturn. The three British astronauts who have just arrived in Titan’s orbit have only one job – find out what’s lying under Kraken Mare. And potentially answer one of humanity’s biggest questions. Are we alone in the universe?”

When I began working on scoring the story, the first thing that struck me was the fantastic soundscapes Matthew had created. On top of that, quality acting and writing truly inspired me! It was a pleasure to create music to help illuminate the production. I wrapped up scoring and sent over my mix to Matthew on December 17th. The following day YAP Audio Production released “Kraken Mare” to the public which has already received quite a few positive reviews!

Today I Audio Drama Production Podcast Logohave released the score through Overlook Hotel Records as a free download. What I am asking in return is, if you like the music (or the audio drama or any of the other great works YAP have put out), please consider making a donation to their Patreon account to support their works. They are lovely people that have been building a growing and supportive community of modern audio drama producers. They also release a regular podcast (the Audio Drama Production Podcast) that helps to educate people on how to make their very own audio dramas. Have a listen to the story below and let us know what you think. You can find quite a few of us hanging out on the ADPP Facebook group, so drop by and say hello! Maybe you will find yourself making your very own audio drama, too! Thanks for listening!

The Antoni Tashev Project Is Released!

Cover-Art_11f_gold_edgeThe Antoni Tashev Project Is Released!

Overlook Hotel Records released The Antoni Tashev Project today! When I first started working on the project, Antoni was sixteen and played way beyond his years. He began playing guitar at a very young age. Studying classical guitar, folkloric/traditional music, and 70s rock truly inspired this incredibly talented guitarist to create his very own brand of music. I am honored to be a part of this album and hope you will enjoy the music as much as I have.

Antoni Tashev

You will hear some unique guitar work accented by wild bends, vibrato, and a strong ear for melody and harmony. Don’t let the fact that it is a collection of instrumental songs convince you that it’s a guitar solo-riddled wankfest. In fact, quite the contrary. Antoni focuses on melody and the interplay of the instrumentation. When I was his age, I was playing in a cover band and completely clueless without having written anything worth listening to, so hearing what he has accomplished already shows me just how much time I have wasted. It also inspires me to work harder and to keep hammering away at creating music because I love it. Antoni told me how he was inspired by legendary guitarists like Peter Green and Jimmy Page. While you may hear hints of these artists in his work, he is a complete original.

Please give The Antoni Tashev Project a listen. You can stream or download it for free at Bandcamp. Enjoy!

Trinity & Triage Release New Track

Trinity & Triage - Travel By WhaleTrinity & Triage Release New Track – “Travel By Whale”

“Travel By Whale” is the first new track to be released by Trinity & Triage since the debut self-titled album in 2014. The band has widely been labeled as a “progressive folk” trio. Trinity & Triage has also been embraced by the Prog Rock community and continues to pop up around the web on various blogs, forums, and music sites. The Overlook Hotel Records studio remains to be rebuilt, so progress on the new album has been slow. The good news is that things should pick up quickly this summer. Another positive note is that quite a bit of new material was already recorded and is in various stages of development.

In the interim, Deanna continues painting and working on various art projects, Ralph has recorded a large number of tracks as potential candidates for future Trinity & Triage songs, and I have been taking care of a baby boy who is now eight months old. I also have a studio to build this summer.

Having said all that, please have a listen to the new song and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.

Cheers!
Kevin Hartnell

Dronefly – “Closer” (2014)

On planet where I
First encountered your kind
Where fingers beam and ripples burn
For a whisper of sky
Contemplating your eyes
Could you transmit to my world?
Distant beam of cooling light

I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you close
Close
Close

On the planet where I
First encountered your sigh
The sweetest aria
Was I calling your name
As you floated in space
Unaware of my cry?
Distant beam of cooling light

I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you closer
I’ll bring you close
So close now
You’ll share my every doubt
So close now
