Artist Bio

Influences:   Immortal, Emperor, Solstafir, Wolves In The Throne Room, Me and That Man

If you've heard my stuff before, you might think it's all just metal, but I've since bought a Tele and a bunch of weird guitar pedals, so who knows...?

Let's just get into it and see what happens ๐Ÿ˜

    This being my first Fawm venture aside from collaborations with my son, your kind words, encouragement, and collaboration were greatly appreciated. Hope I can do it again next year.

  • @srcoops 21 hours

    A skillful and powerful presentation on Divided World. Thanks for doing such a good job with my lyrics.

  • @ihelen 2 days

    Yesterday I was "forced" to listen to some music by a guy named Johnny Hiland. Wow. I take back all my preconceived notions about country guitar music. Chicken pickin'... Yes, people play that fast. And they play it really well. You too apparently. Rock on, Sapient!

  • @srcoops 2 days

    I am very pleased that you a re willing to work on Divided World. Thanks for taking the time to look at it.

  • @emplate 2 days

    Thanks a lot for your comment on "Yรถn salat"! I did some translating now, though some of the words are quite untranslatable.

  • @ryako  3 days

    It's not fair that you've already done so many songs! Meanwhile, assholes like me are struggling. Hey, if you want vocal processing tips (not like I'm a master, er, mistress at it, I'm more than happy to hop on a train to Amsterdam. Maybe we should meet up. I'll be gone in America during March (like almost the whole month), but i'm totally open to hanging out after that. Of course, that's assuming you want to hang with me....because i'm ultra sweary and crazy.

  • @zoom  3 days

    Thanx for listening and taking time to read it too ๐Ÿ˜€
    I'm a big smile now, thank you for your support.

  • @gslade 3 days

    Thanks for the kind feedback sir.

  • @srcoops 4 days

    Thanks for taking a listen to My Treasure.
    I posted something called Divided World which might work for you.

  • @kirrivath 4 days

    Thank you for bringing the METAL for my lyrics.

  • @gordon  5 days

    Congrats on the win! More Black Country? Lovely stuff!

  • @charliecheney  6 days

    Here, I posted it here as well. Hit me up if you want me to help making changes or anything, or if you just want something else all together. I hope it sparks something for you! And thanks. ๐Ÿ˜€ http://fawm.org/songs/83780/

  • @charliecheney  6 days

    Okay. Sent one in a messsge to Abonium on Facebook. Tell me what you think.

  • @charliecheney  6 days

    Jesus, yes. Looks like most of it is already written from that description alone! I'll see what can do and check back in when something appears. Thanks!

  • @charliecheney  6 days

    Oh man! Thank you! It has been such a roller coaster FAWM for me emotionally and physically, I really appreciate the kind words. I could probably put some lyrics together for you, it would be an honor. Any ideas on theme or meter or style? Glad to write to a goal if you like, or I can just wing it.

  • @ryako  1 week

    Hey, stranger! Sorry it has taken me ages to reply, but I'm doing it now. Thanks for your comment on The Collective. Should we start a why-am-i-singing-like-this-oh-my-god-have-my-balls-dropped-or-did-I-turn-into-a-bird club? Maybe. Maybe we're just singing funny. Or we could be channeling the spirits of singers who have passed away. Like, a medium, but a medium who sings!

    Hello good sir! I have a set of lyrics I think you might be able to do something with if you have the want/time/etc. If not that's totally cool but here's a link just in case

    Happy FAWMing! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks for the comment! Hope you're having a great FAWM so far.

    Haha, can hardly wait!

  • @devin  1 week

    Seriously, best new genre Iโ€™ve heard since Nirvana pushes hair metal out of the way...

  • @emplate 1 week

    Hah, marvellous! I've only read a couple trade paperbacks of The Boys some years ago. I really liked it, but for some reason haven't gotten around reading more. Should get back into it! I don't know if you have the time or interest, but would be really cool if you'd make a tune in that style about Saint of Killers. Or Jesse, or any Preacher theme, really : D

  • @devin  1 week

    Superb job on the black-country offerings!

  • @mantra  1 week

    Maew mew, eehm eeh.
    [Mantra says he's much braver than his humans. He fears nothing. Liar! I've rarely seen such a chicken-hearted cat. He isn't afraid of darkness, sure, but if he sees a mouse crossing his path in the wild, he will take fright. However he overcomes his fears to go exploring unknown territories all the time. I commend him for that.

    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Hereโ€™s your badge. Excellent work and keep bustingโ€™ those zongs!!

  • @emplate 1 week

    Thank you, good sir, for your comment on "Like The Night's Claws On The Face Of Creation", I'm glad you enjoyed it! I have to say I was pretty pleased with the title myself : ) I won't probably have very much time to FAWM this year, but I just couldn't go without it altogether.

    I had to go back and double-check -- I didn't realize "A Speck of Dust" is eleven minutes long, I was so captivated.

  • @srcoops 1 week

    You have been so encouraging to this old man on his first venture alone in the world of FAWM. I appreciate it very, very much.

  • @heuristicsinc  1 week

    I've got some loops for you, but having trouble with my email. Can you drop me a message from last year's correspondence?

  • @candle 1 week

    Thanks for the great comments on my Scarecrow tracks. I need to catch up om my listening. I'm very intrigued by your country-metal fusion.

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @captainvulpine  2 weeks

    Hell yes I wanna play. Bet I could do some weird shit with this 100 year old occult banjo I acquired.

  • @sherrycanary  2 weeks

    Thanks for stopping by to listen and give such nice feedback. I still smile when I think of our jazz/metal collab!

  • @captainvulpine  2 weeks

    Your opening act for the Gasoline Margarita tour.

  • @gordon  2 weeks

    Hi Pete, thanks for that. It was the Japanese Tele, but to mix things up I'm going to use the USA one for the rest of today. Looking forward to some space rock tomorrow!

  • @bking  2 weeks

    Sorry Peter, I meant to answer earlier. Work shit and all. What do I use for amplification? Truth be known, I don't even own an amplifier. I use a Line 6 Pod Studio UX-2 and their Pod Farm software. Everything is VSTs, but I have a got 5 effects chains on 3 tracks for the guitar parts. If some is good, more is better and too much is just about right.

    Oh yeah, the computer I use is an I-7 Windows 7 box 16GB & 2 1TB drives, a 40" monitor and a pair of Samson Resolv 6se monitors..

  • @terriellen 2 weeks

    Thanks for the kind comments on my song Liar, Liar Slutty Dress!

  • @suziewithaz  2 weeks

    Thanks for the encouragement. I might attempt to record it.

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    You've been commemorated in my dad's new song... ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

  • @mmmmarcus  2 weeks

    Thanks a lot for the comment on "Sushi Sunday"! Glad you liked it. You've got some seriously good stuff on here!

    You're always so sweet, sir. Thank you.

  • @pambowen1 2 weeks

    Thank you so much for commenting on "Black is only Blue." I, too, hope that a music-maker will find a way to sing it. I appreciate your time and consideration.

  • @grenzgaengerin  2 weeks

    Thank you for your comment (on my song, "Hel")
    It can be handled either way. If you have an idea for something heavy (maybe metal), I would be honored to hear your interpretation of my dark thoughts musically from you.
    Feel free to download it from Soundcloud and add it to yours. I would be glad.

  • @nursedashie 2 weeks

    Okay! I'll keep that in mind.

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    I say whatever one speaks to you. Let me know and I'll see if I can get him to the collab state on the song. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    I can talk him through how to set it up as a collab... and ask him how he wants to do it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    I was picturing the standard... maximum shock value, type of thing, lol. Should I be second guessing this decision or warning my dad? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    I guess I need to plan for being written out of the will...

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    Now, it might be against doctors orders and I'm sure it would come as a shock to him, but I for one (and guatecoop for two), would love to hear a Sapient-ed version of my dad's lyrics. ๐Ÿ˜

  • @oddbod  2 weeks

    thanks for your comment, you made me laugh...it's so true!

  • @headfirstonly  2 weeks

    Most kind, sir. With the Mooer Ocean Machine the struggle is mainly to NOT drop tons of reverb on absolutely everything, it sounds so good.

    Current reading is "Extraterrestrials" - a 1984 summary of research on SETI, with contributions from Sagan et al, edited by Ed Regis Jr, who went on to write some splendid science books including "Great Mambo Chicken and the Transhuman Condition."

  • @akokulit 2 weeks

    Hi, thanks for your feedback on my song. Will check out your material. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ericdistad  2 weeks

    Hey Sapient - I think I still have your email. I'll email you about the collab and we can get the ball rolling that way, if that's cool with you?

  • @boyatheart  2 weeks

    Thanks for the great feedback on my song. Much appreciated.

  • @zecoop  2 weeks

    Thanks a ton for checking out Cold Snap - Yes.... Definitely... As you know, there's nothing quite like shaking the walls with loud guitar amps. That was FUN. Much appreciated, my friend. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jcameron 2 weeks

    Hey, thanks for the comment! If the metal god of FAWM thinks I've come up with a decent song, I'm going to count that as a win ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ajna1960  2 weeks

    I'm with @devin on the metal song about cats n treats... I bagsy write the lyrics !

  • @meadow  3 weeks

    Thanks for the comment. That is indeed an 8 string.

  • @nuj4x 3 weeks

    Definitely man! That would either be knock your socks off amazing or a Frankenstein of a disaster lol Iโ€™d be happy with both ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @gromwaf 3 weeks

    Thank you, master... always warms my heart when you spend your time on my work...

    stay true...

  • @axl  3 weeks

    Ha! I really thought it sounded interesting and fresh without the drums ๐Ÿ˜„

  • @devin  3 weeks

    We should:
    - start a forum thread to get people posting songs about cats
    - once we establish some good, wholesome, snuggly momentum, we
    - write a metal song called โ€œHey! Biped! THROW. THAT. TREAT!!!โ€

  • @bradbrubaker  3 weeks

    I'm open to ideas on the collab. The simplest would be if you wrote some music and I added vocals, but like I said I'm open to ideas. Yay!

  • @nuj4x 3 weeks

    Thank you for that extremely generous comment you left on Dab!

    This is my style for right now ๐Ÿ˜€ my dream as an EDM artist / DJ is to do whatever I want lol with whomever I want!

    My next track might be an EDM inspired heavy metal banger lol I just do whatโ€™s in my bones! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @grenzgaengerin  3 weeks

    I'm looking forward to having a colab with you this year. Maybe you have an idea for a continuation of my song "Hel"? Please <3 <3 ^^

  • @bradbrubaker  3 weeks

    Is your dance card filled for collaborations? Or would you be interested in a collab this year?

    Well, hello there! Yes, I'm up for this. I've acquired one or two new toys since 50/90 including a G&L Strat and a Keeley Dark Side, so I'll be noodling with those...

    Looking forward to hearing that Tele!

  • @ericdistad  3 weeks

    There will definitely be some more Faithful Sidekicks songs this year! (though I have no idea yet on what were going to write about - we sort of cleared the slate of ideas with the new CD. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you have any suggestions, send them our way!)

    I would definitely LOVE to do a collab this year!

    I spotted some dudes gently arranging their guitars into a big stack.

    One guy said โ€œonce that Abomnium Guy starts riffing, I just feel like thereโ€™s no point. So weโ€™re putting our guitars here.โ€

    Itโ€™s a pretty big pile.

    Can I light it on fire?
