Post The Backwards Funeral [Industrial/Ambient/Dungeon Synth]

Greetings again!

I could have done this earlier, but now that I have 10 tracks available for streaming/download, I figured it was a good time. The first 5 tracks were all completed between September and December of 2010 and the 5 newest tracks were all completed after the start of 2011. There is no guitar or basswork in the music, it's all synths, drum machines and samples... but it was something I wanted to try out and i've come to quite enjoy it, even though I know it's not for everyone. So check it out if you get a chance. All the tracks are streamable on Myspace and Last.FM and if anyone wants them, I can provide downloads. Let me know what you think!

As well, the songs play out as follows...

I kind of like this, a bit of old school industrial ...

New track "Ascension" is now up for your listening displeasure. After listening to it after it's completion, i'm not completely sure how I feel about it, but i'm in a bit of a weird mood and I feel that the track reflects that. Check it out and let me know your thoughts. Check it out and let me know your thoughts. All tracks from the project are streamable on both Myspace & Last.FM. Enjoy!

Post Re: The Backwards Funeral [Ambient Industrial Solo Project]

So today marks my completion of the 'Daydreams EP'. Not a terribly long outing (Just under 15 minutes in length), but I feel that it flows nicely and it works better as a whole than as individual cuts. Anyways, if anyone is interested in having it, the download link is below. Per usual, any feedback is more than welcome. Thanks for paying attention!

The first post-'Daydreams' collection track is complete. Not as long as I was originally mapping it out to be, but I decided that the remainder didn't work quite as well in a transistional type of way, so it will probably end up becoming an entire other song by itself. Anyways, this is "Avalanche" and is somewhat of a departure (Maybe just an evolution) of the previous material, so give it some time to sink in.

The second post-'Daydreams' collection track is complete. This one is closer to the earlier material, as there aren't any guitar samples to be found in this track, but still a departing move forward with more Drone and Noise elements.

Post Re: The Backwards Funeral [Experimental Ambient/Industrial]

So I decided to give The Backwards Funeral a proper Bandcamp page with all 30 tracks available for a measley $3. Give me your money!! All the same, go check it out below by clicking the link. 20 of the tracks are available for free download and if I get enough good feedback perhaps, at some point, i'll put together a second record... but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Enjoy!

Hmm, different. I just gave a short listen to a couple tracks. You're from Connecticut? I am up in Mass on NH border lol. Maybe we should meet up some time (palladium metal show? Katatonia, Paradise Lost and one other at least on the tour coming in September I believe).

Probably one of the best sounding things i've ever made in this style. Hooray for having new toys!

Post Re: The Backwards Funeral [Experimental Ambient/Industrial]

An update! Holy cow, it's been a while.

First, released a 7 track demo that I made back in 2007 (which was 3 years before I started working on the full length that came out in 2012) and that can be heard below.



As well, released a brand new track from the upcoming second album (no idea for a release date. Probably not 2 years this time around), that has shed off a lot of the previously dominant Industrial sound for more a Dungeon Synth vibe. Not sure if it will wrap around the whole album, but we'll see. As per usual, I don't write very long tracks, so this one shouldn't require a heavy attention span. I give unto you...
