As some of you know, my passion in life is making music. Right now I have 5 musical projects I'm working on, each of which satisfies my different tastes. They are:
Christ's Bleeding Hemorrhoids, my black metal side project.
Emo.Must.Die., my brutal metalcore/grind side project.
Enter Solitude, my experimental rock side project.
Exorshit, my brutal death/grind side project.
Bloody Anal Yeast Infection, my genre-bending metal project, main musical priority, and my pride and joy.
Quite a handful, eh? Right now I have so many ideas I'm having trouble manifesting them all properly. Emo.Must.Die. is the top priority right now though. I have a demo and full length to finish before I slip out of this hardcore mode I'm in right now. See, that's my big problem... I can only write for each of my projects when I am in the mood to listen to that kind of music. Emo.Must.Die. is pretty much directly influenced by the bands On Broken Wings, Remembering Never, Bodies in the Gears of the Apparatus, and Discordance Axis so the moment I grow tired of those bands and feel like listening to something else Emo.Must.Die. will go on hold until I get back in that mode. Yeah, it's a bitch. But people seem to like my shit so as long as they dig it and I dig it I'll continue to work this way.
After Emo.Must.Die. is wrapped up I have another BAYI full length to make, as well as an EP and some material for potential upcoming splits. Bloody Anal Yeast Infection is weird... everything from brutal death/grind to hardcore to metalcore to techno comes into play with BAYI. I haven't heard too many bands like it... the closest I've found is a band called The Berzerker which oddly enough inspired me to start Bloody Anal Yeast Infection. Originally a techno death/grind project, BAYI has spawned into something all its own and I just love it. Apparently others do as well... I seem to have a small cult following. :D
After BAYI I need to write a CBH full length. I have 3 three song EP's, one of which was never released, so a full length just seems likea logical step. Christ's Bleeding Hemorrhoids is heavily influenced by bands like Venom, Bathory, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Gorgoroth, and Thor's Hammer. It has that classic "cave" BM sound and the lyrics just poke fun at all the cliches of the genre. Totally unserious lyrically but the music is straight up old school BM.
Somewhere during all of this I need to write more Enter Solitude material for the split with Dungeon Dweller. I only need 2 or 3 songs so it shouldn't be that hard... and I've tapped Sam to sing on a few of them. It should come out very well. I don't know what inspires this project... I just love melody and this project allows me to totally explore my softer, more melodic side.
And finally, I gotta finish the Exorshit record that's been started and stopped for over 2 years now and finish a follow-up EP as well. Damn... talk about delays after delays. And I thought MPS took forever to record material. Haha, just kidding Mike. ;) Exorshit isn't my main projecyt by any means, but I put more effort into it than my other side projects. I guess you could call it my secondary project. Yeah... anyway Exorshit is directly influenced by the brutal Texas death metal bands Devourment and Sect of Execration. Total death/grind.
As far as releasing shit goes, I know for a fact the BAYI/MPS split as well as the next BAYI full length are coming out on Razorfed Records, a label being started by my boy Bradley! Wut up holmes! But as far as everything else, I dunno. I'm hoping to convience Brad to release the Enter Solitude/Dungeon Dweller split as well as the Emo.Must.Die. full length... we'll have to see if he's up for it. The Exorshit full length will probably be self-released, as will the CBH full length. I doubt Brad would release either of those and I'm not interested in label shopping, so yeah... I'll probably end up either selling them directly out of my home or making them available for free download online. Maybe not Exorshit but definitely CBH. That's how I've released 2 of my 3 EP's uner that name.
Man, so much to do, so little time to do it in. I'm done ranting now.
