more background on this... it is pretty convoluted how this ended up getting uploaded:

Nebulous Peril started back in 2012 where i would upload tracks to weekly beats. I ended up finishing up an album of that material and it was released on halloween 2014. So there was a 95% solo album out there... and it didn't really go anywhere.

the project was meant to originally be a black metal project but i have found that it is drawing upon all sorts of different extreme metal after i got into making it. i still try and steer it in the black metal direction though, especially with the vocals.

fast forward to december 2015. my main metal band Vronk! was unable to do a show i was invited to play on for 12/30/15. an old drummer friend i was in a band with not too long ago was interested in doing the show, even though we had no material. and same with an old guitarist friend whom i had been wanting to work on a project with... we would talk about making shoegaze black metal stuff.

So those guys ended up being the lineup for the show which we got ready for in just a few weeks. i wrote 4 songs for the set and the guitarist wrote 1. we ended up playing all 5 songs and added a keyboardist too. somehow it went over well live. i'm still not sure how we did it but we kept the song structures simple and open.

then, that drummer had a serious health problem and kinda bowed out of the band. which is really more of a project directed by me i suppose. to answer your question, i played drums on the first album that is out there already on all but 2 of the tracks, but on this a new drummer was found.

this new drummer lives way out in the suburbs at the edges of chicagoland area. so i have to drive all the way out there and back to play with him, but as a bassist i had a good connection with him last fall. so wanted to play more, even though the full time band didn't work out with him because of logistics issues (i still get lost after every time i go out there, have no problem finding it but get lost on the way back).

so in this incarnation with the new drummer, the album is focused mainly on blackened psychedelic rock, with influences of both old school and new school black metal (mostly 2nd and 3rd gen influences), godspeed you black emperor, and a little shoegazer as well as classic psyche rock thrown in too.

this one that i uploaded (found out that my phone is difficult to use to upload a track because of 16mb filesize issues at 320kbps) was sort of randomly chosen and is actually probably my least favorite or towards the bottom of favorite songs on the 9 song album. which doesn't mean i dislike it, i just don't know exactly what to do with it since the others are more focused and this one has a looser feel to it.

I want to add rhythm guitar (lead guitarist is already there, the other guy) or keyboards, not sure which... or maybe both. i also am doing the main vocals on this so gotta figure that out too. it will end up sounding darker and heavier after the overdubs... this is pretty much fresh off the presses at the moment, some light mixing and mastering done.

thanks on the last 3 secs comment, it sometimes can get confusing as to what to edit out, glad i left it on there. the latest twist is the drummer i was working with for the earlier show (we actually did 2 shows, another in the early spring) is feeling better and wanting to finish those songs up.

so this project has like 3 EPs and a recently recorded LP basically just waiting for vocals and finalizing. one of the EPs is just me and drum machine. another EP is just me and the drummer from earlier this year. and the third is the 5 song EP that needs to be recorded still, the songs we played at the shows. this song is from the LP with the newest drummer, both are still in the band/project.

Love those loose yet totally coherent feel. Great energy!

Twisted, dirty, groovy chaos--the sound of a neutron star as it rocks itself to oblivion.

thank you! i chalk this up to the lineup, all 3 of us are very similar intuitive players whom i have played with before several times but not a ton. all 3 of us are improvisers who also can write and do studio work. this was the third time as we had to cancel the first 2 sessions. it ended up being the perfect day to do it and it was a super mellow vibe in the studio as we each didn't get on each others nerves or create any pressure. we did have to set up the studio and do a test run but things went more smoothly than any recording session i've been a part of. thanks for picking up on the vibe!

i think you might have just helped me write the lyrics to this song!

by the way, this is actually track 6 not track 3 i'll edit that heh.

This is pure filth, it's brilliant.  For some reason I have a recent Scott Walker-style vocal in my head for this.

Loose feel, but solid playing. Very nice!

i had more echo and time dislodging effects on my bass on this particular song, that slightly offset the rhythm, i think is what is causing this. it is one of the more "floaty" songs on the album, will incorporate this idea into the theme of the song.
