Well, I’ve finished writing all of the music for the next album, which be self titled. I made the album artwork today as well, but considering I’m writing this from a phone, I can’t upload it for you. The album has eleven tracks and is 1 hour and 24 minutes long. If you’re quick with math, you’d know that the average song length is a little under eight minutes long. If not, well, then each track is a little under eight minutes long.

Even though I can’t give a cover or any samples, I can give you the track listing and song length. Once I can post the cover art, I’ll be sure to do so.

1. Signing the Contract 1:08 (instrumental)
2. Watch Me 5:56 **
3. Stockholm Syndrome 5:28
4. Divine 5:21
5. The Summoning 8:43 **
6. Nightmare 5:27 **
7. Softly 6:40
8. Unraveled 9:15
9. Jeanne’s Wish 10:42 (remake from Bugs, will have lyrics this time around) **
10. Safe to Dream 4:21 **
11. Damien’s Vault 21:02 **
Pt. I – The Good Life
Pt. II – Awakening Inside the Vault
Pt. III – Flight/The Great Escape
Pt. IV – Coma/Dreams
Pt. V – The Hand of God
Pt. VI – Home

** – no lyrics yet

I was going to write an instrumental track for this one, but I haven’t been able to write anything since I finished the last song, so I may just end it there. Besides, almost an hour and a half of long ass songs is already enough, no? Also, I work in a very particular pattern. The music comes first, once the music is done, the lyrics and album artwork come out. I have lyrics for most of the songs already, and as stated, I finished the album cover today. All I have to do now is finish the lyrics and get everything actually recorded. This last step will have to wait, though, I’m afraid; I don’t have a guitar that can be used with the recordings. The fret placement is off, so no matter how much I finagle the truss rod and bridge height, I’ll never be able to play without hitting a lot of sour notes. While I do like sour candy, I do not like sour music. Also, I refuse to borrow someone elses guitar for the recording process.

Okay, well, dinner is done, so I’ll get to that. Will post updates as they come.

  1. Can't wait to see the artwork and, of course, hear the music. A couple of weeks ago I was listening to my music on "shuffle" and something from Bugs came on. At first I didn't know it was you; I said out loud, "Wow! That's cool … wait a minute, is that Ike?" Sure enough, it was. Keep up the good work. Make some money ;p
