Hey folks, some of you know my gaming gore videos (the Gore Reviews series, the demonstrations) and the interview I did with Marko back in March of last year (gonna be doing more videos on Mordhau very soon).
Along with that I've been working on a solo project of guitar centered instrumentals with the genres varying from soft rock to heavy-prog metal. If that's your thing check out some of the tracks here below and let me know what you think.

In Memory (melodic metal, and latest release):

Sandstorm (heavy-prog metal with Middle Eastern influences):

Losing the Sense of Time (soft rock with Spanish music influences):

Edit: all the current tracks and some of the older demos can be found in this playlist:

Not gonna lie, shit sounds pretty sick. I particularly enjoyed Sandstorm, love the middle east vibes there. I always thought middle eastern style melded well with metal.

I never heard of you before today to be honest and have no idea what you have to do with mordhau, but yeah, good stuff. Keep it up.

Most important question though: will you be destroying people at playing the Lute in Mordhau?

Edit: just realised my 666th comment is about metal. How metal is that?

Thanks man, it is pretty fun to combine ME themes with metal. There's another piece I've been working on that's even more oriental-centered, got the guitar parts written entirely but I have absolutely no clue on how to approach the drums in that. That should be a fun challenge to tackle.

As for the Lute part - very likely, if my hands will remain intact, which can't really be taken for granted in Mordhau.

Thanks dude!

One more thing I forgot to mention - there's a playlist with all of the solo project tracks, and some of the older demos that I'll be updating as new stuff gets recorded:

Give that guy a fucking lute IG already !

Didn't know what to expect at first to be honest, but it's smooth af and I hope you'll make a living out of your talent.
And since you're comfortable with a bunch of musical styles, I wonder if you ever thought about making some epic songs for this game ?

Thanks man, working hard on making it happen.
Not sure what the plans are for Mordhau music wise, but I'd absolutely love to take part in making the soundtrack for a game

Hey folks, just recently released a new track in the solo project called "Open Season". The style is somewhere between hard rock and old school heavy metal. Short track, but it ended up becoming the most effort I ever put in a 2:40 mins end result, hope you'll dig it

Just put out a mini release with an alternative, heavier ending for Open Season. Made it for a machinima called Helicopter Pug Hunting, decided to finalize the ideas, re-record and release
