Andrath the Merciless

Wow, what a week it has been. I haven’t been putting time into music again since I was just starting out with BMPS. If Andrath must slay, my guitar game needs some work. I have the skills, but I need to hone them again and I need to push some boundaries. I’m up for that. There are some areas I’m going to put some time into:

  • Stamina. I would like to have it where I was gigging with BMPS again, possibly even better.
  • Solo’s. Since I’m the sole guitarist in RÁN, this duty befalls upon me. I currently suck at that. I’ve always been a rhythm bloke that could destroy with sheer brutality. Now I need some finesse too.
  • Accuracy. Especially for my solo game.
  • Speed. Faster is better. I’m already quite fast, but I can always get faster.

On top of this, I still have a metric ton of material to get through. But I think I can squeeze the above into mastering the songs.

I have my work cut out for me. Let’s rock and RULE! !m! !m!

Grymm and Frostbitten

Welp, I have another project. My good friend Didrik from RÁN recruited me to play in his band. I’m looking forward to it too, since I’ll be crushing stages not before long. I do have to learn a lot of material though. It’s not all super mindblowingly difficult stuff, but still, it is quite a lot of stuff to learn and memorise. Since I am pretty much stage-ready since I have all the gear that I need (head, cabinet, axes, stompboxes, cables, pedalboard, etc), I am looking forward to getting out there again, even though I’ll be pretty much unrecognisable with all the corpsepaint, leather clothing and spikes. But I don’t mind. I might enjoy the obscurity.

So, meet Andrath, the guitar wielding Marquesse of the Deep, my current black metal avatar. Hopefully you will hear that name often.

Anyway, I’ll have to get neck deep into black metal, so hail Satan it is.
