I'm a metal fan and musician from way back in the day. In the late 80's I played guitar for several local punk and thrash bands. I've been playing guitar for over 20 years, and I've been producing for 4 years.
After a long stint away from metal, I got the itch to come back to it. So this is my metal project, "Shreds of Black Cloud." I play all the instruments except the drums, which are programmed. I try to program the drums so that they sound like a real drummer is playing them. I do the vocals for each song, but I'm really not that great at it. I'm looking for experienced vocalists who have the proper recording equipment. If any of you vocalists out there want to join me in this project, let me know.
I write lyrics and have a lot of song concepts. I kind of prefer it that way, me writing all the lyrics that is, but I'm open. This project is about otherworldly places, the supernatural, other realms. I guess you could call it a bit Gothic, and symphonic too.
The songs here are subject to change, depends on how happy I am with the mixes. I'll be refining my recording and mixing process. Finding what works and doesn't work.
I don't play live anymore. I played live years ago, and it was a lot of fun. I have bad stage fright though, so that kind of ruined it for me.
