The Darkened Dawn was/is The Blue Devil's first properly recorded song. Completed exactly 2 months ago today, so I thought it fitting for a little anniversary to release it on Mediafire. Personally I find it the best file sharing site. So why not. Well to be honest the whole 2 month this is a coincidence, and I just noticed it now while writing.

Anway the Darkened Dawn is some of the best crushing riffs that we've put out. With influences from Black Sabbath to Meshuggah this thing is a headbanging masterpiece.

Oh and by the way - we're bringing back the finger tapping solo. Its not used enough anymore.

The M.E. Project's First Release

In this post you will find the cover of the upcoming album by The M.E. Project, The Omega Scroll as well as the link to the first track on the album, 'Overture'.

Overture sets the tone for the entire album which is a mix of Black Sabbath style doom, psychedelic and stoner/sludge metal. The link is for download from Mediafire, 320kbps.

Download track 1: Overture [1:26 - 320kbps] from Mediafire here.

The M.E. Project

Matt's solo project, i.e. The M.E. Project, is planning on releasing the first song from the upcoming album entitled 'The Omega Scroll'. Granted the song is the intro for the album, however it sets the tone for the entire disc.

Appropriately titled 'Overture' the 1min 26sec track sets the mood for the following slow, psychedelic, doom influenced riffs. The whole idea behind the solo project was to allow Matt to explore the other influences and musical styles that The Blue Devil doesnt cater to. Other than that, so Matt could just play around on the guitar more.

Overture will be released soon.

Band of The Week

Alright this weeks band of the week is definately for those that are fans of Meshuggah. Granted there are alot of bands out there that are influenced heavily by Meshuggah, such as Fellsilent, The Safety Fire, Mistaken Element or New Zealand band Set To End, but they never come close to the wonder that is Meshuggah. However this band seems to get the sound perfectly, including the vocal style.

Yea yea, at first when I heard these guys I thought it was Meshuggah and then when I found out it wasnt I labelled them as unoriginal and riding on the success of Meshuggahs greatness but once you actually get listening to them you can see their own style coming through. A different take on the djent style playing of Meshuggah.

Anyway, point being.... Check 'em out. They are good.

The band of the week is....

The Blue Devil's name dilema

The Blue Devil are contemplating changing their name. The name The Blue Devil or TBD for short was brought in when the band consisted of just Chris and Matt. The days in which the music created by TBD was extremely progressive and influenced heavily by blues.

However with the band heading more towards the genre we call DDB (death, djent, blues), the name The Blue Devil does not have the same meaning anymore. Dont get me wrong, theres still a blues element to Matts guitar playing but with the coming of Dave on drums the music has begun to take shape and form, loosing part of the progressive and experimental aspects that it once had. It was these aspects that brought forward the blues influence in his guitar playing.

Now, with the beat of the drums to guide them and to give rhythm, the southern rock and death metal influences have come forth in Matts playing, while Chris is able to lay down the styles of Deftones and Meshuggah on his 7 string Schecter Omen.

Through Hell (Rough Mix)

And the moment you've all been waiting for...............

oh who am I kidding, chances are if you're reading this blog you're either part of the bands or accidently came here somehow. But its a good record for the future I guess.

Anyway, here is the link to download the rough mix of Through Hell. The Blue Devil's newest song, inspired by the likes of Meshuggah, Suffocation, Aborted and Necrophagist.

I suppose I should do a cover for it... well see. Its Christmas Eve, got sh*t to do.

Band of The Week

Screw this, lets just get straight into it this time. This band comes from Australia, and is considered Math Metal. They are extremely original and bloodly brilliant. They give off an awesome live performance and great sound. Krank and Marshall is a great mix!!

Anyway the four piece band formed in Melbourne in 2004, and since then have released 2 albums and are currently working on a third. Personally I think they should do a live album while touring after they release the up and coming release due around April 2010.

The band of the week is....

Updates & Bla Bla Bla

Well it seems to have been a week since I last post anything on the blog. Pathetic I know but whatever. As Mikael Akerfeldt (Opeth, Bloodbath) would say "If you dont like it, go f*ck yourselfs".

The Blue Devil: Through Hell (formerly Big Cock)

Anway we've spent the better of the last week drinking and at gigs so well I'll have to be excused for not poasting anything. Since my last post however we have finished writing the 'Big Cock' song, and renamed it (for now) to 'Through Hell'. We also spent a day recording this bitch of a thing. I only say that because our drummer was absent so I was left to write the drums. But at least we have a rough mix. Granted by the time I did the drums for the last riff, that we so named Meshuggah riff 2, I was extremely tired and couldnt be bothered. So yea they drums for the end of the song arent the best but it is a rough mix.
As always I will upload Through Hell (Rough Mix) for free download. Oh and yea the guitar solo is a little rough on it but hey whatever.

The Blue Devil's New Song

Out of some surge of inspiration Chris and Matt wrote an entire song (minus the drums & lyrics) a couple of days ago in one sitting. The song puts together a few of the biggest influences and favourite bands into one song, which will be recorded today - and the drums added to it later.

The song, so far titled Big Cock due to the energy drink we brought that day for a laugh (check out a pic of the can here), is a cross between two or three genres. Technically two, but three is a more accurate description. We can this new cross genre DDB, which is just an acronym for the genres/styles which are apparent throughout the song. Death, Djent, Blues.

Influences: Aborted, Bloodbath, Meshuggah, Suffocation, Johnny Winter and ZZ Top.

As far as lyrics and vocals are concerned the main vocals (verses) will be performed by Matt but at this point in time I believe that the chorus vocals may be done by Chris but that is yet to be confirmed. As for the theme/idea behind the lyrics Chris has suggested a journey through hell.

As always the recordings of this song will be uploaded and the links placed on this site for free download.

Band of The Week

Alright its time for another band of the week post, and this week its actually going to be on time. Ha.

This band is a New Zealand band, who when they first came out I honestly didnt think twice about them, but after a few member changes and a bit of experience they have surely come a long way. This 5 piece metal band is definately worth checking out, especially their latest album: Carved & Created.

The Band of the Week is...

The Blue Devil News

The Blue Devil havnt been able to post much up lately and I apologise for that. If anybody even read or listens to our stuff, but hey.

Yea we're busy writing new music and trying to perfect our style. At this stage we seem to be drifting between different styles but havnt really produced anything thats completely what we want to hear ourselves play. Hell I was happy I finally got a band together that plays 1 song, but now we need to find our direction.

But as usual anything that we record will be uploaded for free download.

We do have a few things in mind, a couple of groove songs, another southern rock song, a few death metal songs and a doom/stoner song. And we may record White Sun, Red Star properly very soon, along with Burnt Me To The Ground.

So we'll just see how it goes.

Band of The Week

Right, band of the week time. Seems to be slack with posting lately. Oh well, so much to do and so little time.

Ok this band isnt exactly unknown but purely because I was at their gig last night and they were bloody awesome, I am going to put them as the band of the week for the week ending last sunday.

Their supporting act - Subtract - has been my band of the week earlier on, but today its a groove metal legend, and a band that every metal head should know and own all their albums.

So the band of the week is....
