SLT show from last week

Hello my friends,

I wanted to give you guys an update on the latest. If you remember from the last blog entry, I was hyping over the Scars Like These show with our friends Lucid by Midnight at the Rusty Nail on Apr 15.

Well we did the show, and it turned out okay. Due to the Easter weekend, there wasn’t many in the crowd, other than the other bands and some of their friends.  I still managed to meet some cool people, like Leah from Lucid by Midnight, who had been the previous bass player for SLT! Their drummer Mike was also very chill and he helped me out with some drum parts i forgot to bring to the show. I’ll never forget little things like that.

The first 2 bands were very decent, but again hardly any crowd. My bandmate, Psyko Mike described nights like this as “rehearsal night”. That is definitely what it felt like.

We were the third to go on, and from where I was playing at, I couldn’t hear super well. So what I did hear is what I played to. The PA system was fucked and you couldn’t hear the vocals very well.  According to my Uncle Bruce who was in the audience (he did voices in some of my animated movies if you remember) , the guitar amps weren’t as loud as the drums and bass. Oh well, we still played everything in time, and I could tell it was tight despite the sound problems.

The guy Matt who designed the album cover came to see us, and I met him for the first time. He thought we sounded great. He could hear beyond those sound probs haha

But overall, good time. It was another learning experience.  I seriously can’t wait for the next show which is going to be in less than 2 weeks today, on Fri May 5. Will keep you all posted 🙂

If you haven’t heard us already, check out our Facebook and add us !

Till next time !

Updates

It’s been awhile my friends, and I do apologize.

I’ve been very busy with work and the band, and by the time I get to my other side projects I am truly exhausted. What else can I say? I am only human.

In the meanwhile, my 2nd show with Scars Like These is this Saturday, April 15 @ The Rusty Nail in Ardmore. I really look forward to it.
I am still trying to work on my writings, the Terminal Frost demo that never was, and new MoonCandle. It’s hard to juggle all of these.

Keep checking back for more.

First show with Scars Like These

As you all know, my first show with Scars Like These was last Friday, Feb 24. We were one of about 5 bands that opened up for Michale Graves at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE.
We were the third band to go on, and the first to get the crowd moving. For learning 7 songs in a week, I gotta give myself credit, I really pulled it off. I kept it as simple as I could. Sure, there were some mistakes, but hardly noticeable. This is probably the largest crowd I’ve performed in front of — approximately 150 people in and out of the bar.
After we played, we got to meet Michale Graves himself, and he told us we rocked. I received a lot of compliments as well for my drumming.

There were some videos filmed on smartphones from friends of ours, but unfortunately you can only see the videos on Facebook if you’re on a “tagged friends”. Oh well. Add me if you can — Dave Debauchery Facebook Page
So all in all, it was a great night, and I look forward to the next band practice which is today!
I’ll let you know what happens next 🙂

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hey everyone,
I have a big announcement to make. This morning, I got a call and found out that I am now officially the drummer for the band SCARS LIKE THESE!
There is a lot to the story before all that even happened.
This last week had to be the craziest week I’ve had in a long time. Besides the overtime hours at the regular job, I was looking for a bassist to see if Terminal Frost could get back together. This guy hit me up, and he sounded like he really wanted to be in a serious band. So I talked to Ryan and he wanted to see if we could set up a jam session for the guy. While that was going, I got a message from Tommy Scars from the band Scars Like These. We opened up for them when we had that show back in October (as you can see below).

They fired their drummer, and then they had a fill-in drummer. The fill-in couldn’t make it to the shows they had coming up. Me being without an official band other than fun-at-home stuff like MoonCandle, I decided to take him up on the audition.

Last night, I auditioned for them, and I caught on pretty quick to the songs I remembered in my head. Keep in mind I only started listening to their setlist THAT day. Of course, I wasn’t on point entirely, but close enough that they liked my style.
Today I found out, and I am extremely excited. They may not be metal, but they are a Hard Rock band that clearly influenced by old school Punk and early Heavy Metal. Its going to be great because they are a serious band that does play shows, and they play a lot. This is what I’ve needed for a long time.
Being busy with this new band, I still hope to update this blog, but it won’t be easy. I still have a lot of writings to put up here, too.
So keep checking back, it’s gonna get interesting !

Not the greatest start to the new year

My friends,
Sorry I have not been able to update this regularly like I had preferred. Sadly, the year hasn’t gotten off to a great start for me.
First off, my band Terminal Frost is technically on hiatus. Ryan and I talked and agreed that the rent at the jam spot has been costly, and without a bass player to split with us we simply cannot continue to be unproductive.
I moved my drum set out of there. Now it is currently in a basement. I am officially without a band at the moment except I am trying to work on new MoonCandle and my debut solo album of Dave Debauchery.  My microphone isn’t sounding good on my new computer. It sounded perfect on the old one, but for my Windows 10 not so much.
So I bought a new microphone. Unfortunately I am missing a splitter cable to put it into the new computer. Weird, the microphone didn’t even come with the cable, it’s just “assumed” I already have one. Gotta love it.
All this nonsense is going on and I still continue to procrastinate. For that I am sorry.
I had good plans for this blog and they will still continue as long as I have the time. This blog isn’t just for my music updates, its also for my writings.
There were other things that were personal going on in January that I won’t get into. I will try my best to be more productive on this page.

2016

Hey All,

Well I guess I lied to all of you last year saying there would be a ton of more posts. I guess there really wasn’t. I wanted to put more movie and music reviews up but never really got around to doing it.
In 2017, I definitely want to contribute more here to Oblivion’s Realm. It’s unfair I leave you readers in the dust like this.

I gotta say I had a great time in 2016. I was free from the chains of my consequences of 2014 and 2015. It was the biggest relief in my life. Now I am focusing on my music life more than ever before.

Some High Points from 2016:
– Got a new car and got XM radio, Howard Stern returning to my life was a very good thing. Something I mentally need for all the driving around I do.
– My new band, TERMINAL FROST. Establishing ourselves and being able to play a show
– With that, my drumming getting waaay sicker than ever.
– Seeing Suicidal Tendencies/ Megadeth in Bethlehem, PA
– Seeing Prophets of Rage in Camden, NJ
– Seeing Opeth in NYC
– My work on MoonCandle, resulting in the release of:
MoonCandle: XVIII
MoonCandle: A Very Heavy Holiday
– Finally getting a lot of my music on YouTube and other sites
– My visit to the Tattoo Convention in Philly. What a great time.
I got the SGT D tattoo and met Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma people !!
– Watching Witchfinder General at The Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville
– Flea Market Vending

There were certainly some low points as well, which I’m not too happy to share. So i’ll only share a few.
–  I had a really shitty eye infection that took forever to get rid of.
– I discovered my cymbals were pawned before picking up my drum set…
– Austin quitting Terminal Frost

There were some more but they’re too personal. Well anyway, I hope 2017 turns out great. I want to post more stuff, and keep my audience interested.

See you next year!

A TON of updates

Hello my friends,

A lot has happened since the last time I even posted anything on here.  But before we get into the details of that, I wanted to tell you all that I finally got a brand new computer after years of neglect and not caring about the latest technology. So things will be a lot more convenient for me when it comes to my music and online work now!

First off– Terminal Frost news.
The show turned out great. Yes, it was our first show, and it was at a very small place with a small audience, but you know what? That’s how a lot of bands start, and I had a very fun time, despite a few tech difficulties (the sound guy wasn’t doing a good job).

Definitely was a good time and I am looking forward to future shows, however not long after the show, our bassist Austin announced his departure from Terminal Frost. I was very bummed out, but he explained to us why, and it made a lot of sense. So not all is lost. Ryan and I talked about Terminal Frost going on hiatus until we find a new bassist. We will be auditioning people (if interested, please message me right away!). In the meantime we are going to work on a cover band side project. There is no name for it yet, but we want to cover some classic rock songs and a few 90s songs. We will make them our own style with a heavy edge to them. And they are not going to be typical cover songs that typical cover bands do.

Well, while that is happening I’ve been working hardcore on the new MoonCandle. It will be called A Very Heavy Holiday, and I am hoping we can get it done and released this holiday season. The time is getting closer, so we have to either get it done soon or let it sit till next year around the holidays. Otherwise, there will be work on the follow-up album to XVIII for 2017.

Coffin Born news —
I finally got the “greatest hits” album Violation of the Dead from 2009 up on YouTube! You can check it here.

There will also be a new album from the band Estrogenocide being released very soon from what I am told, and you know they’re brutal. Their greatest hits “The Art of Chauvinism” is finally up on YouTube after sitting in the underground for some years. They haven’t had a new album in 10 years. So this new album ought to be interesting.

I’ve also been working on my writings, and trying my hardest to get the Martin Scorsese reviews up.
Sorry for taking so long to update, so much has been going on, and this is a very, very busy time of year as you all know. Please check back again soon, I will try to keep this up more!
