The Birth of Something Good

Something quite amazing happened the other day. During a conversation with my friend Andrew, we came up with a brilliant, but probably horrible, idea. We are going to combine black metal with bluegrass. The goal is to write and record an album under the project name Blood and Banjos. For now, this is all we know, but it is enough…

a: there’s a free blue grass concert in golden gate coming up
m: nice…hadn’t heard of it
a: supposed to be pretty sweet. I think it is in oct. you should try to make that
m: they’ll have some good americana too?
a: think they have a good smattering of everything
m: bluegrasscore? black&blue grass?
a: probably
m: haha
a: kick in the face grass
m: bloodgrass
a: banjos and blood
m: yess
a: so we need to start a band called blood and banjos
m: we could do this all via e-mail and make an album
a: nice, I am serious about this. this could be sweet!

So, here we are. Welcome to my blog!  I plan to chronicle the progression of this project whether it achieves glorious success, or fails in an apocalyptic manner.  Your job as a reader is to make sure we continue to work on this, and motivate us with your thoughts, ideas, or hellishly vehement criticism.  Thank you, and enjoy.

  1. AWESOME!!! I had this idea of my own recently of combining metalcore and bluegrass, and was hoping someone had done it. Black metal is a short cry away from metalcore, but it’s definitely in the same direction. Can’t wait to hear the end result. Good luck!

      thanks adam! funny thing is that quite a bit of the music I’m writing is heavily influenced by metalcore, so you’ll definitely hear metalcore+bluegrass in this album once it’s done!
