It’s a Wrap!

Everything went pretty much AMAZING as you can tell from this shot.

Lots of love and thanks to Richard Bastarache and Steph Miramontes Art for their hard work and dedication, and of course credits for this photo and for bringing everyone and everything together goes to my lovely wife Nanor Wazirian.

Special thanks to Alex Robshaw, Lavender May, Noah Gareau and Marky Marc for their performances.

Be prepared, I will bombard you with very cool shots from the video shoot itself in the coming weeks. No spoilers! We’ll keep the best for the video release.

Last day of shooting

Tomorrow… err… today is the 4th and last day of shooting, yet it’s 3:00am and I’m still awake, when I should be getting enough sleep, cause I’ll be facing the camera in a few hours.

Other than that, well mixing is going.. kind of well, slow, but well… If things go smooth, the music video should be out sometime in January, and the album in March/April.

I’ll post some shots from behind the scenes in a few hours.

Cheers!

Time For Some Updates

Alex Argento‘s mixes started coming in as we speak, there will be some back and forth feedback before we get to the final mix, but we’ll get there.

Meanwhile we’re working on a fabulous music video for one of the tracks from the new album Paradigms, titled “Carousel of Death” with the amazing duo Richard Bastarache and Steph Miramontes Art. We’ve already shot in a few locations over three days, first two of which went great, and the third day… I don’t wanna talk about it right now, but we managed to pull it off; thanks to my wonderful wife Nanor Wazirian who’s organizing everything and doing her best to put together the music video.

I’m also working on the album cover, as you may or may not know, I’m painting the album cover digitally myself, it’s gonna be something out of this world, literally. And if you’d like to watch me paint, I have a twitch channel where I stream the painting process live, go follow me there at www.twitch.tv/metroprog.

Over and out!

A Couple of Paintings

One of the perks I recently offered in the new album crowdfunding campaign had a special reward, a digital painting. Two generous fans picked that perk, and I delivered.

Here are the two paintings for Dik Diepeveen and Gaurav Dubei. Thank you both.
