So I promised that we write and record a new song every month, exclusively for our Patrons.
Admittedly that is a big challenge.
But I’m very excited about it.
Because it gives me a new opportunity to explore whole new musical territory.
We are a heavy metal band.
But if you listen to our music, you can tell that we are much more than that.
I like many kinds of music.
I’m a 90’s boy and I’m a big fan of Britpop.
In 2000’s I was a huge fan of indie rock music, something like garage and alternative.
I like blues, I like acoustic, I like Raggae.
So I like to take this opportunity as a chance to write something different. Something else than heavy metal.
(I’m a main song writer in the band and now I’m in charge here, so this is mainly my job to do this work.)
Music makes our life richer.
I like to take this opportunity and make some music to make your life richer and brighter.
It also makes me a better songwriter, hopefully.
No, it doesn’t hurt Imari Tones’ music.
Because it’s totally different musical territory.
It’s just a whole new channel, whole new stream of songs.
Maybe in a few years, it will grow into a totally new project, or even a new band. Who knows?
Things to clarify:
Because of the limitation of time, equipments, and housing situation, I’d like to point out a few things about these “New Songs”.
- Drums, in most case, will be programmed drum tracks. Drum Machine, in other words.
- Electric Guitars, in most case, will be recorded via LINE/DI/Preamps, directly into a computer. But don’t worry it still sounds good.
- Singings, I probably will do it in a nearby rehearsal studio (Japanese housing situation doesn’t allow me to do it at home) and it might be a little rough compared to our commercial releases.
At least I can record acoustic guitars in a real manner, using microphones, at home.
- Lyrics, words, I think they will be, sometimes in Japanese sometimes in English. My English is not perfect, so don’t be so harsh on that! Not necessarily Christian lyrics because it’s actually very hard to write “proper” Christian lyrics. (I hope you understand.)
Songs will be delivered in a form of MP3 file, attached to the blog post here (Shown as an audio post). Also we might be able to make a simple video when we have time.
There is a tag "Monthly New Songs". You can find the post using this tag.
All in all, I will try and make it sound good.
I’m confident that they will be good enough to “brighten your day”!!
