As a result of copious requests from listeners I decided to remix songs from ‘Hi Aphrodite’ with louder vocals. The new versions can be heard below and on Soundcloud. I’ve made them available as free downloads (320 kbps).
Hi Penthus was the 1st album I released under the moniker ‘The Mad Pride’. While free downloads of the songs were previously available, I recently decided to upload higher quality versions (320 kbps). I also fixed the ID3 tags which were not accurate in the mp3s which I originally uploaded back in 2010. The new mp3s can be freely downloaded from The Hi Penthus set on Soundcloud.
I just uploaded another track from my 4th album ‘Advice to the Wayfarer’. It’s called ‘Witch Hunting’. Allegedly it sounds a little like ‘medieval psychedelia’. I’m pretty happy with that. I’ve recently been informed that there is a baroque style of composition at the core of my songwriting. I guess that could explain all the medieval comparisons.
Lee Lucas recently wrote reviews for my first 2 albums. His support on Soundcloud and wonderful comments have been a regular source of encouragement for me. I’d never really considered my music to be ‘prog’ but it was great to be described as ‘acoustic prog folk bliss’. You can read the full reviews at:
I uploaded a new song to Soundcloud and so far it’s been compared to David Bowie, Queensrÿche & Uriah Heep. I can’t say I’m influenced by any of them as I haven’t heard much of their music. I’ve been making an effort to listen to Bowie more recently though… just to understand the comparisons really.
Playing With Fire is from my 4th album Advice to the Wayfarer. I’m a little late posting it here but things have been crazy lately. 7 of the people who have commented on it on Soundcloud have likened it to David Bowie. It’s also been described as ‘dreamlike’, ‘atmospheric’ and ‘brooding grandeur’. I’m pretty happy with that. Oh, yeah, and here’s the song:
This is another new track from my forthcoming album ‘Advice to the Wayfarer’.
So far, comparisons have been made to David Bowie, Nick Cave, The Church and Andrew Lloyd Webber. As for genre, people have called it psychedelic, deathrock and low rock. I had fun looking into ‘deathrock’ as it’s a genre I’m not particularly familiar with.
