I have been hinting at this for a couple weeks, but am ready to reveal a little bit about it now.
I wanted to do something for a while now, that was a little darker and more serious and aggressive than Creepersin. I want to keep Creepersin fun and lighthearted. Basically, I want it to be campy horror fun. But, I found myself writing some really dark stuff.
I had been listening to a lot of death metal and black metal, and thought it would be really fun to just try it out.
Murder was born.
I wrote lyrics for a couple albums worth of stuff and finally started writing music and arranging the pieces. I felt really good about it and headed into the studio.
I have recorded three songs that will come out next month and depending on how that goes, I will record more and hopefully play some shows.
The music is inspired by Six Feet Under, Cannibal Corpse, Darkthrone and Bathory mainly. Of course there are a few others in there, but that is what I have been listening to the most through this experience.
I recorded all the instruments and am looking for members. Drums, bass and a couple of guitars. So, if you are in the So Cal area, please let me know if this is something that you would be into.
I will share more about the songs I recorded and more as the weeks move on, but for now, dig the artwork that the amazing Zoe Wall did for Murder!
Keep it creepy!
