Darkfold’s video for Echelon

I’m in a band. We make rock music. We occasionally make videos for our songs. This one is for a song called “Echelon.” For those of you who are aware of the ECHELON program, you might find greater resonance in the song and its meaning. As it’s our first real attempt at a ($0 budget) music video we’d love to hear what you think!

Metaverse promo video

Good news everybody! I’ve got a video to share. It’s not the one I’ve been talking about, it’s just a teaser, but I think you’ll dig it. It’s the promo video for our album, Metaverse!

Support Darkfold and buy our album! Thanks!

Darkfold's web site is live!

Hey everybody: Good news! Darkfold’s web site is live!! Check it out:

http://darkfold.underutopia.com/

Edit: I’ve got the Darkfold.com domain transferring now! It’s bliss.

Let me know what you think of the site. It’s got two different music players, 4 downloadable MP3 tracks, plus links to a bunch of pages that are hosting the full album, like Bandcamp, AmieStreet and Jamendo. It’s rock and roll overload!!

So now you know why this blog hasn’t seen many updates lately. I’m hoping to get back to regularly scheduled posting soon, but I post on two other blogs as well as this one! ::wipes sweat from brow::

I’m also working on a super-secret video project that I hope to be able to share with you guys soon! I’m pretty stoked; it’s coming along really well. More info soon…

Hey kids, my band Darkfold is playing the Dinkytowner Cafe this coming Wednesday. It’d be great to see you there, but I totally understand if you can’t make it on a weeknight — plus we don’t go on until 11 pm. But we’d love to see you if you can make it! We’re gonna bring the rock and there’s no cover!!

I’ve got two Darkfold shows coming up in October (plus two more in November). Sorry for the short notice on the first one, but it’s on Thursday October 16th at the legendary 400 Bar in Minneapolis!

Then the next gig is on Friday October 24th at Station-4 in St. Paul at 10pm. Both shows are with Foresight for Sore Eyes and Human Bean.
Check out a quick review on PerfectPorridge and find our tunes on MySpace or Last.fm. Be sure to check out PerfectPorridge for a chance to win the album just by saying you deserve it!

Incommunicado – Darkfold

I’ve been piss poor at updating this blog lately, huh?

That’s because I’ve been working on the album. Yep, my band, Darkfold, are readying our first album — finally — after months of delays as life interceded, as it often does. But no more! I think we’re finally getting close. I’m gonna get this sumbitch out if it’s the last thing I do!

It’s called Metaverse and it’s a quick, powerful album full of bruisingly loud, but always-melodic songs that we think are pretty cool. I’d say it has elements of The White Stripes, Nirvana and Iron Maiden in a stew that we’ve definitely made our own. I’m pretty psyched about it. I can’t wait until people can finally hear it!

I’m finishing up the album artwork. Here’s a preview of the CD cover; let me know what you think!

Oppressotron video!

My band, Darkfold, has a new video. It’s fucking crazy and disturbing; I know you’ll love it! Let me know what you think. It’s called Oppressotron!!

edit: Okay, we weren’t totally happy with this video so we took it down. Unless we can think of some really cool imagery to go along with it we’ll just let Oppressotron exist solely in your mind… and the government.

Sick Music

I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s been two weeks; two very busy weeks.

I wish I had something cool for you, but I don’t have much to say other than: I’m sick. I feel like crap. So no worthwhile posting today. Instead, I want to direct you to an interesting site I found. It’s called thesixtyone and it’s basically Digg for music. FINALLY!! I’ve been waiting for something like this for a long time and it looks like somebody’s finally done it right.

Check it out; let me know what you think. I’ve uploaded a Darkfold song if you want to hunt it down. :-) We have a show coming up on Saturday at Station-4. We would love to see you there!

I forgot to mention my concert

Shit. We had a poster and everything. I’m posting it anyway, dammit.

There. Don’t you wish I had posted this earlier so you could’ve gone to see Darkfold lay down the rock? I’m such a bad promoter.

But wait!! There is a chance to redeem myself. We’ve got another gig this Friday at the Whiskey Junction! We’re playing with a band called Foresight For Sore Eyes and a few other bands.

Oct. 5th @ 9:30pm! Whiskey Junction! Darkfold will be on early so get there fast and be ready to rock.

How was the show?

Thanks for all those who came to the show tonight. It was awesome to see you all there. Hope we put on a good show.

For those of you who missed our inaugural gig, we’ve got another one coming up on Saturday the 25th! It’s a the Terminal Bar at 9:00 pm. I believe cover is $5. We’d love to see you there.

We’re Darkfold. We rock your face.

Darkfold show — Tuesday night at Big V's


Hey everybody. I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t had time to post about my band’s show tomorrow night!!

As you may know, I’m in a band called Darkfold. We’re playing Big V’s Saloon Tuesday night at 9pm. Cover is $5. Also playing are A Life Without and Post Mortem Grinner. It’s gonna be an insane show! More metal than you can swallow. Hope you can make it!

Blogs of Summer

It’s hard to blog during the summer.

There’s so much to do outside, even when it’s melt-your-face hot out there. Things only get complicated by the fact that I’ve started turning my computer off when I’m not using it. This is “who are you and what have you done with Tim?!”-type behavior for me, but I’m trying to waste less electricity. And I’ve realized that the computer is really loud. It’s quite peaceful when the damn thing is off ’cause the hum of the fans is pretty annoying.

I use my computer as a jukebox, so this crimps my ability to play tunes easily. Still, I kinda like having the infernal machine off for a change — I use it too fucking much. What do I often do after coming back from a hard day at work, where I’ve been staring at a screen for 8 to 10 hours? Why, surf the internet of course! That shit needs to stop.

I’m hoping this change doesn’t impact the blog too much. I’ll still turn the computer on from time to time. It’s also my recording workstation, so I’ll need it to make a bunch of tweaks to the album before we are finished. Speaking of the band, concert dates are coming soon.

Lastly, there might be fewer posting for a few days as I battle a wizard. That wizard, of course, is Harry Potter and his 7th book. I love J.K. Rowling’s books and this is the last of the Potter books. I’m about 200 pages in and it’s really good. I’ve been trying to slow down or else I could read the whole thing in two days despite it being 750 pages. I’m sure a lot of people are done with it already, but I’m trying to take my time and savor it since this is it; no more Potter after this.

How sad it will be when the book’s over. Whether Harry dies or not doesn’t really matter. Since this is the last book he’s dead to us when the last page turns. There’s something very final about that.
