Artist Bio

Influences:   Nachtmystium, Mayhem, Wolves In The Throne Room, Amon Amarth, Immortal, Emperor

On March 6th I go to Skyhammer Studio for a week to finish recording for the 3rd Abomnium album.

I'm still doing FAWM.

I have to spend lots of time re-recording nine songs so they can be re-amped when I get to the studio.

I'm still doing FAWM.


But I'm still doing FAWM. Because there's nowt quite like it smile

    Thanks for reading all my lyrics. I'm glad you liked them! =]
    Also, you're more than welcome to claim Ta Netjer as your own if you want. I'd love to see what you can do with it.

  • @zecoop  Mar 9

    Thanks a ton for listening to my 14th song, Ze-XIVth. Appreciated the comment! The tempo was steady... it was my rhythm guitar playing that wasn't always right on the beat, but that's an easy re-recording fix. i did like how it turned out, but am hoping my band puts a melody on there. smile

  • @wille  Mar 4

    SAPE!! I have a titload of workload at the moment, but I haven't forgotten - I shall be going through your catalogue soon!

  • @temily  Mar 4

    Haha thanks so much for your comment on Hurricane! It made my night smile

  • @johnstaples  Mar 3

    Thank you so much for listening to Never Coming Home and for your kind words!!! I'll be back tonight for some metal goodness!

  • @mosley  Mar 3

    Thanks for checking out some of my stuff, gladded you dug the vibe smile
    Yeah I was shooting for emotional/hopeful joy with "Tears", cool that it came through when you listened

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 3

    thanks for your nice comment on "Wine". I'm fond of that one, its gonna get a lot of mileage post FAWM.

  • @owl Mar 3

    Thanks for the comments and taking the time to listen! Your comments on my crab canon made me laugh smile

  • @johnnycashpoint  Mar 2

    Thanks for your comments, sir! I too have been very remiss in my commenting, which I tend to rectify this coming week. I did start out thinking 'let's not do comedy for once' but thankfully drifted back into it from song 10 onwards - I think, if you're looking for my comedy tarnished gold, "Lightweights" may appeal to you.

  • @tagpfm  Mar 2

    Thanks so much for the tips and kind words! I will go back and study my black metal and try to pick up the right feel for the drums. And I will definitely give EZ Drummer a shot. I'm sure it would save me a lot of frustration!!!

  • @infinitenexus  Mar 1

    I finished it, so here 'tis!

  • @martindavies Feb 28

    Cheers mate ...i'll demo it tomorrow

  • @kristian  Feb 27

    aawww.... boo to the plague sad Hope you get better soon; but damn if you didn't pull off a mighty fine FAWM!

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 26

    hey, listening to burzum following your comment on my song - this album hlidskjalf is good stuff. thanks for the tip! dunno if that's the style you meant, but i like it.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 26

    Thanks for getting the MP3 in there, Sapient. Looks and sounds so much better.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 25

    And up on site about two hours later. How do you host you MP3s on the FAWM site? I have forgotten how to do this.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 25

    Sapient, yes, give me some lyrics and I will do music and vocals. This should be quite interesting. Also, if you come up lyrics that the Supremes would sing (if they were made of metal) that would be ideal.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 2014

    Thanks for dropping by to visit Bruno. Too late for a collab?

  • @max  Feb 2014

    Really really amazing!

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 2014

    Thank you for your kind comments. So nice of you. smile

  • @amandajane1960  Feb 2014

    Hi @sapient smile
    I handed the 'Ice Baby' lyrics over to a friend that I collaborate with, not mentioning genre or anything, and this is what he came up with. I thought you might like to listen, considering your '80s power rock' comment smile
    Amanda smile

  • @amandajane1960  Feb 2014

    Heya Sapient smile
    You could be right ! When I re-read it could be sung that way smile
    One of the things I am loving about FAWM is the wide variety of ways at looking at the same set of lyrics smile
    Thanks for the comments smile

  • @zeroshift Feb 2014

    Hi, sorry it's taken so long to do say it - but thanks for the comments on the song! Greatly appreciated. smile Think downloading should now be enabled on the track! smile

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 2014

    Hey, thanks for commenting on "My Happy Ending", oops...I mean, "A Little Sadistic" wink. Glad you liked it!

  • @brownium  Feb 2014

    I forgot you could add comments to the Mercury collab as well. I'm really happy with the drums, and fairly happy with the whole thing. Thanks again for making it happen!

  • @looprication  Feb 2014

    WOOO HOOO!!! So glad you're still here!!! Disregard my Facebook comment, I am an idiot.

  • @avidfanman  Feb 2014

    Thanks for your kind comments on our metal effort "Change Your Stripes" - downloads are enabled on Soundcloud if you still want a copy!

  • @juravial Feb 2014

    Thanks for the comment Sapient, I am pretty sure I could write my entire FAWM around the one story she told me. I have 30 minutes of material on my phone, I actually had to get her to stop as I was running out of space to record. Good Times!

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 2014

    Thanks for your comments! I hope to see you at FAWMstock!

  • @faceofeinstein  Feb 2014

    hey sir,
    you should have a message waiting in your inbox.

  • @infinitenexus  Feb 2014

    Thanks for your comments, especially about mixing the guitars. I high pass the rhythm guitars at 110Hz with this setup (namely the old 15 inch speaker) and I'm holding off on the multiband compressor, but I may end up using it to tame the low end during the palm mutes. Long live metal!

  • @raygungirls  Feb 2014

    I've got no lyrics for the song yet, so stick it wherever feels best! wink BPM is 136

  • @raygungirls  Feb 2014

    While you're still doing FAWM, and relearning songs to record (and I guess, eating and sleeping)... check out my Demo9... maybe you can squeeze in a solo?

  • @skullcrush Feb 2014

    Hey, thanks for visiting my latest track smile I appreciate the feedback and I'm happy you enjoyed the song. I'm also glad to see you've taken up this February challenge despite there being much else in your life music-wise at the same time. Go you!!!

  • @dasbinky  Feb 2014

    I will somehow make a They Might Be Giants fan of you. Apart from their general (though not complete) lack of metal, they seem astoundingly in line with your sensibilities.

    Oh, and my mad piano skillz come from here:

  • @wobbiewobbit  Feb 2014

    thanks yes, 2nd time ive followed you i a morph and had zombies in the song...

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2014

    I just wrote a song about lizzards, since I now live in Florida and they are everywhere.
    Haven't figured out jazz/metal yet, but I think it would be hilarious if you did something with the lyrics.
    Not wordy...but insistent smile
    Want to have a go at it?

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2014

    You DO realise that I'm now going to have to write a track called "Ear Honey". Or use it as a genre tag. Or both. big_smile
    Thanks for the listen and the lovely comment, Lord Sapient. smile

  • @leslie  Feb 2014

    Yes, the Germans have a way with misery and morals, don't they?

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 2014

    Sure, why not. I shall write you a song about cheese.

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2014

    Hey Sapient! I think it's time to do a jazz/heavy metal collab this FAWM!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 2014

    Thanks for listening to White Bird and for your kind words. And I'll keep your bluegrass secret!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 2014

    I think you actually beat me to #1, if you look at the song URLs, yours is 32905, mine is 32906... not sure why mine shows first!

    Thanks for the comment either way, playing that galloping rhythm on the bass is really hard! Gives me extra admiration for you metal types wink

  • @subjectzero Feb 2014

    FAWM never starts for me until I hear a Sapient song...

  • @jonniegrunge  Feb 2014

    SAPIENT! Yes! I'm back for more, though not sure how much. Can't wait to hear more of your music!

  • @sacraficialglam  Feb 2014

    why were you not on my watchlist? you used to be. now your back. now I am back. Your listed. I am listed. Rawk!

  • @copyredleader Jan 2014

    I hear you on those A-Wing
    bast£¥%s. The worst was the training mission where you flew past the beacon to bring out another one... but if you blew it up, they ALL came after you.

  • @thetau  Jan 2014

    Wow ! The world is smaller than I thought, although I'm afraid living in Las Vegas is still a bit too far for me to be just next door. Oh and keep up that abominably brutal treatment of the music industry over there. Maybe you can slap some sense into them. big_smile

  • @vikkiflawith Jan 2014

    *Waves* big_smile

  • @swampjaw  Jan 2014

    Ok… Workaround. Two backslashes. \m/

  • @swampjaw  Jan 2014

    ….m/ Almost time to rock!

    (WTF? The Rock hand emoji isn't working? \m/?)

  • @ansgar Jan 2014

    Hiya Sapient. Congrats to you for all things Abomnium and see ya around campus.

  • @laakeri Jan 2014

    Always cool to hear some metal here. Bring it on.

  • @orbh Jan 2014

    Hey! Good to see you too.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 2014

    Are you still doing fawm? I'm unclear. I'll just have to plug my headphones in, turn the volume up to 10 and find out based on whether or not my ears start bleeding uncontrollably.

  • @deinonychus Jan 2014

    Hey, glad to see another metalhead. I'm curious to hear what you will do. I didn't have the chance to hear your stuff yet, but from your influences, I can see you're leaning on the black metal side?

  • @ianuarius  Jan 2014

    Oh MAN Can't wait to see what you bring this time! I needed more songs from you during 5090! Don't let me down now!!! big_smile

  • @debs  Jan 2014


  • @leslie  Jan 2014

    Embrace the crazy, my good sir. It's better that way. Let me know if you want to sing about dragons or children lost in the woods. I'm all over the folklore this year.
