For those of you who know me, hello! It's lovely to be here again!

For those of you I've not met yet, I am the creator of Abomnium, a black metal band signed since 2012 to UKEM Records. FAWM is where I come for the inspiration and creative push to make new songs. I love it. And I'm so happy to be back again this year!

Here we go again...

    Hey, I just wanted to say, thanks for giving me a warm welcome into my freshman year at FAWM. I've truly enjoyed listening to your stuff, and wish I had gotten started a little earlier so I could have gotten through all your stuff. All the best to you on your journey and in your career.

    Not that it was ever in doubt but huge congrats on hitting the Big 14!!!

  • @pallidust  3 days

    Uh, ja, ik weet het niet...Maar ik ben blij dat jij het nummer goed gevonden hebt en dat jij een fan van nerdcore bent!

    And, yeah, I just busted out in best rusty Dutch right there. Holla.

    Thanks for the comment on Optimist Prime! I may want to explore the Michael Bay version of Marvin - "I've got these pains down my left side"... out pops a thousand missiles that then blow up the whole screen... then a voice over "Brain the size of a planet..."

  • @headfirstonly  4 days

    You're too kind, sir, too kind.

  • @mattpierce  4 days

    Hi Peter!

  • @caterwauler  4 days

    Hmm, I've just realized you were not in my watchlist. FAWM really makes me dumb.

  • @popmythology  5 days

    Napalm Death, aaaahh! As always, you are too kind.

    I reviewed "Kleine gitaar" in my weekly FLOG (Fawm-Blog).

    Quite enjoyed the song! Great duet!

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @lenigmusx1 5 days

    Thank you for the comments on after wings... I look forward to checking out your songs😊

  • @popmythology  6 days

    "Kleine gitaar" is in my FAWM Week 3 blog post of favorite songs. Oh, and so is "karma whore"

    I got the honor of being your FB pages 500th liker!

  • @johnstaples  1 week

    Ya know what? Giving 100 comments is an awesome thing to do! You Rock!! How's about a shiny new CENTURY CLUB Secret Decoder Ring?

  • @popmythology  1 week

    Are... you... k..k..kidding...?! You could *fart* and *burp* to those words and I would be honored out of my mind. YES. My god, yes. And anytime. And by all means, please work on your other things first. I'm not going anywhere.

    EDIT: Also please feel free to change the words and structure as you see fit and as fits your music. I'm not attached to them!
    2nd EDIT: And of course please ignore my clumsy descriptions of how I imagined the vocals to be and take it in any direction you like. I can't imagine that I wouldn't enjoy however you choose to play with them.

  • @colourcodedchaos 1 week

    I wrote you some lyrics. Hope you like them! =]

    If you ever come to Chicago, you'll have to go to Kuma's Corner, a burger place (the best burgers I've ever had) where each of the burgers are named after metal bands (or bands that historically influenced metal).

  • @grayland  1 week

    Thanks so much for the kind comments on my recent post Strange Lights!!! I agree with zecoop...coming for you...that means ALOT!!!

  • @uvejeff 1 week

    my synthesis yours + bodhist...'s

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    Thanks so much for the awesome comment on my collab with theodamus... It means a whole lot coming from you!! The instrumental part shifted from the 70's where I was thinking it would come from and ended up a real mix of genres. Then she rapped over it and bam...
    Thanks again!

  • @emplate 2 weeks

    Thank you for your comment on "The Eternal Shift"! You may be right, as the hypnotic nature I strived for in the song might suffer if there would be vocals added, you never know.

    I listened to couple of your songs and just had to watchlist you I myself try to write a bit different music than black or death metal in FAWM, but those are the genres I otherwise play and listen to the most. Therefore I'm glad to hear some well done extreme metal here! I enjoyed especially "Corinthian" and "The Furious Engines of Heaven". They were from the darker side of black metal, something I enjoy very much. I guess I'll have to check out your band as well!

  • @headfirstonly  2 weeks

    Thanks for your very kind words on Dark Matter. The music didn't take long to do at all - was just noodling to a drum pattern by playing a synth pad with the Ableton Push, hit that chord progression, and immediately thought, "Oh, now *that's* got potential..." The words arrived, all at once, at two o'clock the following morning. The whole process felt as if the song was there already, I just had to find it. Very weird experience.

  • @popmythology  2 weeks

    @caterwauler you rock, friend. thanks for being game for the friendly challenge. i hope you guys have fun and i will appreciate the creative result no matter what. (PS: i have hyperacusis too. big time, resulting from long-term lyme disease and secondary co-infections. music is ok at reasonable volumes but so many other things, dear sweet gods have mercy. so i feel you).

  • @caterwauler  2 weeks

    Let's go for it, and if you feel like doing grinding metal, do not hesitate All-darkness-grinding-orchestral sounds good.
    Anyway, I hope you're not afraid of muddy sounds : my poor production skills are worsened by my hyperacusis, and I'm not allowed to use headphones during FAWM so my vocals takes are always dirty. But you're overtalented, so I trust you to guide me.

  • @fearlessflight2014  2 weeks

    Thanks for your encouraging feedback on 'Satan Sighs', I really appreciate you taking the time, will have a listen to what you are up to while I'm here!

  • @clioem 2 weeks

    but @sapient I categorically refuse to bitcrush Milo and Celestine (the song about the kitties). Unless I write a second companion song about space panthers

  • @clioem 2 weeks

    @sapient of course it's a bitcrusher! I also use it in Raven Dress... near the end, that's a very hi-res bitcrusher. Similar thing in Gravity Wing. I love that thing.

  • @clioem 2 weeks

    Thank you very much @sapient

  • @wille  2 weeks

    If you're on the antithesis part of Auntie Sin, surely you have to do a song diametrically opposite from my song in every way. If that helps

  • @popmythology  2 weeks

    Wow, ain't I glad I discovered you. I just thought, "Okay, let's find some random good stuff and typed 'black metal' in the search box." You were the first result. I clicked. I'm glad I clicked. And I am tickled to death that @meriamber has already been here.

  • @meriamber  2 weeks

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my track! Glad I got you humming my tune : P

  • @headfirstonly  3 weeks

    No problem sir. I have edited my comment

  • @mood481 3 weeks

    Thanks, glad you liked it. I was admittedly a little out of my element, but that's half the fun.

  • @mood481 3 weeks

    Hey, my friend. Remix posted. Hope you like it.

  • @adamj  3 weeks

    Thanks for the positive comment. I'm not much of a metal fan but your tracks are well-made and have great energy, and I'm not surprised you got signed. Keep up the good work. Maybe I can be a pro one day too

  • @axl  3 weeks

    Nevermind, I just read you're the only member. Man, I'd love to see that band (and that drummer)

  • @axl  3 weeks

    You have a band now?!! I just searched for tour dates and rejoiced as Google showed me you were to to come to Hamburg this March. Then I saw that this stupid machine had given me tour dates for Insomnium

    When you come to or near Hamburg or Frankfurt, please let me know.

  • @faceofeinstein  3 weeks

    Hello Sir!

    Will Lord Sapient be baptizing us in metal this year? I hope so. All hail king sapient! If you are up to doing another collab like we did years ago (you just sent me a drum track to see what I could come up with on guitar) - I'd be cool with that. Either way, I hope to hear from you this year!
