ISIS nirbid single pt. 2

soooo, i really had every intention of getting another posting up late last week.... and then i threw out my back and spent several days in bed. this event put me behind on the cavity layout, as well as this ISIS layout for the forthcoming "not in rivers, but in drops" cd single, which is currently slated for feb. release but may be pushed back. in any event i'm getting caught up now - the ISIS single is complete, and the cavity is damn near finished as well (i should be able to post some more previews from that in the next couple days).

also, i fear i may have offended some of the polish folks with my posting of the "scary polish bathroom" photo. while the bathroom was scary indeed, i did not mean for that picture to stand as my public statement on my perception of poland. i've found many aspects of my trips to poland to be quite interesting, engaging, and sometimes beautiful, but the bathroom pic just happened to be the first one that i posted from many shot there. i'll do my best to give a more even representation next time and post something lovely along side that which is not so.

while laid up in bed i had the chance to catch up on some reading, some movie viewing, and some record listening - here is a amended list of those items which have kept me entertained/sane over the last 5-6 days: deadwood - season 1 DVDs, ocrilim "anwwn", mütiilation "sorrow galaxies", "summer blonde" by adrian tomine, "lost girls" by alan moore and melinda gebbie, bohren and der club of gore "midnight radio", "shadow of the wind" by carlos ruiz zafon, metalocalypse - season 1 DVDs, ghostface killah "big doe rehab", "it's fine, everything is fine" directed by crispin hellion glover, jesu "pale sketches", etc.....

the end.
for today.

Aaron, how can I get started with screaming/growling type vocals? I make a kind of droney funky riff based hard rock leaning towards elements of post-rock and post-metal (those terms suck, but it's what we've got to work with i guess!?!)

What would you recommend doing? I try and sing along to ISIS, which I really dig the vocals by the way, but it seems I'm doing something wrong. All I can manage is either a really raspy and quiet, or if I try and go louder, and off-key neck raping below.

Nahh Aaron, don't worry. We weren't offended by that bathroom pic;] We all know how it's like. Things are getting better but the clubs in which bands play are somewhat stuck in the 90'...
I have been at your show in Warsaw [20/06] and I loved it. Especially the improv with Eugene and Celestial. Too bad no Panopticon for us that night;] I'm glad that someone recorded an audio bootleg...
Oh, and just a thought of mine. Have you thought about recording the shows from the soundboard and just release them into the web? Or even sell them for 5$. No mastering, no computer stuff. Just the plain recording.

Cheers,
Bartek

As for the "bathroom conspiracy theory" - no offence, cuz this 20/06 gig in Warsaw was fabulous. And I've been there with a few people who barely knew Your music - that evening they've just fallen in love with it.

To gentletime - yes, there is a bootleg of that show, got it burned, gotta just check where i've found it.
