What is this Pixel Day? You will find out next month when a demo of the game I've been working on with a team will be released here on NG. Here's another teaser screenshot of game footage. I'll talk about my upcoming music below.
I know lately I've been a bit less active (though I released that Tetris cover with Phyrnna 2 weeks ago), but I have a LOT of unfinished songs I'm trying to iron out. I've been going to school for music production so my mixing is REALLY improving, so you'll see a huge difference with future upcoming music. I'll tell you a little about them as they're grouped into categories (to make it easier).
This is my "10 Year Anniversary" release, as it's been almost 10 years since I started making digital music! It's going to be a 5 track release and I'm going back to my roots! The first genres of I started making were Big Beat, and Breakbeat. I started out with heavy influence from Celldweller, The Prodigy, The Crystal Method, Fatboy Slim, Propellerheads, Paul Oakenfold, etc. I LOVED that stuff, and still do. It'll be 10 years in March, so hopefully it'll be done around then. I'm making a remix of an old famous song from Newgrounds for the EP, you'll see that soon.
Piercing Lazer EP:
Yes. Piercing Lazer (the project responsible for Simple Sight the Castle Crashers Necromancer boss theme) is coming back. I kinda missed the synth rock/metal sound I had heavily infulenced by Celldweller and Mindless Self Indulgence, and I have a few unfinished songs in the works, one of them being a remake I posted on here a while back called "Risen From the Deep" I made in 2007 originally. I expect to be done with this sometime in the somewhat near future. I can't say whether it'll be this year or next, but shooting for December (hopefully).
Secret Tribute Metal/Rock Album:
This is another one close to my heart, special to me. It's a tribute to a musician on Newgrounds who has inspired me greatly. It's a secret for now but it's also something I've been working on juggling between all these different projects. It's to be released in early 2016.
Well that's all people! Since not many people buy my albums I'm going to shorten them to EPs and I may not release as often as I'm slowing down, but as often as I release music monthly, I'm shocked. No worries though, I'll still be releasing stuff every month or 2 weeks, hopefully.
I've been working on 2 games, but one of them is really the focus for now. I also made a Tetris cover with @Phyrnna! :) Also, stay tuned for an upcoming sketch comedy/mock podcast series.
Here's a sneak preview for now, buuut I'm not going to spoil anything...yet. I censored the main character, who you'll see in time. I have a great team with me. Can you guess what this might be based on?
Tetris Cover with Phyrnna
This is something Phyrnna have been playing around with for a little while, finally got to uploading it. Story goes, I was watching one of Phyrnna's live streams on Picarto.tv, and she had an interesting Tetris layout in FL Studio, so I decided to make her a "prank song" to play over her live stream to match it. Surprisingly, not only did she love it, but she played around with it live, and this is the result of our collaborative effort. Enjoy!
Also uploaded it here on NG. (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/642582)
Happy Clock Day! For the 12 years I've been here, I haven't really submitted anything for Clock Day, ever, but I've been a fan for years of the Clock Crew movies. I decided to not only make a song for Clock Day, but to do something different! This is my first NSFW comedy song. I wanted to throw people off, and the reactions I've been getting really make me happy. I want to make more comedy songs. Anywho, check out the recording session too! I make goofy faces.
Want to be a part of my next song? Wondering what new music I'm gonna pump out next? All in my newest video. Scroll down for info on why I need a pixel artist. Shoutout to @Phyrnna ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRF-esvcSoU
Need 16-bit Pixel Artist For Game
TwinBlazar (author of Project Dimentia: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/660664) and I have teamed up with StrawberryClock to make a 16-bit sidescroller game! If you want an idea of what the game is about and what it's like, check out the image below! We need more artists, so if you want to contribute, contact me for more details! Thanks!
NIM Contest Winners
The results of the contest are finally here! See who won the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest and check out the music. If you make games, you seriously need to use some of these amazing songs. The contest album is a free 44 track album, too.

Need Artist and Programmer for Games
I have 2 games in development, one hasn't started yet. The first, is based on the intro of the tribute video I did with many awesome newgrounders. It's basically a game based around that plot, a 16-bit beat em' up (like Castle Crashers style, but think Super Nintendo/Sega Genesis days). I need an artist who can draw 16-bit backgrounds, and characters, and everything else for it. If interested, contact me, shoot me a message. @Coolboyman is involved as the programmer, I'm psyched.
The other game is 3D and will run on Unity 5, so I need a Unity programmer. If you're a good Unity programmer, message me. Below are pictures. It's a Puzzle/FPS game like Half-Life and Portal, only more. I have a team of people already, it's been in development for months, but we need a programmer. Here's some snapshots. That's all for now, love you guys!
Besides the soon to be revealed results of the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest, I haven't had much to post about (yet), but I figured I would give you guys a preview of a song I'm working on for an upcoming album due later this year (I know I already have an album releasing next month, electronic though. This one is..METALLL with MORE SYNTHS, I'm returning to my 2007 Piercing Lazer "necromancer theme/simple sight from Castle Crashers" synth metal sound).
Without further adeu, here is a song from a tribute album in honor of an artist. It's something new I'm doing, experimenting with new styles, and I think I'm getting better with mixing.
Check it out: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/634894
PS: I got accepted into a college for Audio Engineering (basically mixing/music/sound stuff). I start August 3rd. I'm psyched.
If you like anime, and music, then this post is for you! I'm open for music commissions again, so if you want me to make you a song, head on over to http://www.flareheartstudio.com/catalog and see the details there! Could use the money, lost another job...meh. Show this trailer to anyone you know who wants me to make them something, and I want to do more voice acting! :)
Writing for Kel-chan's Anime Series (Gunmetal Black)
I'm now writing for some of Kel-chan's series, such as Gunmetal Black. I have been a huge fan of her work for many months, then earlier this year we've become good friends, and Gunmetal Black (the original video) was one of my favorites from her. I got to be a co-writer for the first episode, taking it to the beginning, and it's out now! Check it out!
The Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest ends in 2 weeks (July 12th)! This celebration of NG's 20 Year Anniversary has been a blast so far, with amazing song submissions. Go listen to them, or enter if you wish: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1390486
I'm coming out with a new album in August, and going to a talent agency soon...fingers crossed!
Annoying Orange contacted me months ago asking to use one of my songs for a video. Well, the video is finally out! It's at 3:10 in the video! It's my cover of Reading Rainbow with him singing on it! He and his team are really swell people. I'm happy they used it.
Also, I made a short motivational film that involves things I've realized about my future, which contradicts my "Taking a Break" video. I want this video to encourage people with dreams, so share it with anyone who dreams big, but feels small. Enjoy! PS: Don't forget, the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest deadline is July 12th! Send us your entries there!
Hey! Do you make games and upload them to Newgrounds? You should check out the awesome game-themed music submissions in the Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest (N.I.M.) that I'm holding! So many musicians have submitted some great songs already! You should ask them if you can use their music! Check out the song submissions!
Here's the link to the music contest: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1390486 and if you're curious what else I've been up to lately with my life, look at my last post: http://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/932470
ALSO! If you want to use any of my music for games, you can use anything with permission, though here are some suggestions by genres! :P Note: The list may be long, but it was hard to choose. Pick a genre you're looking for then look around. I consider this some of my best work (suitable for games).
Additional Note: Over the past 9 years, I've challenged myself to make multiple genres, and these are only some of the ones I've touched so far. I'd like to give a special shoutout to @TomFulp @Bad-Man-Incorporated @MetalJonus @Phyrnna @Back-From-Purgatory @SkyeWint @ForgottenDawn @JDawg00100 @motakay @VGSongbird @RobSoundtrack @Animattronic @Evil-Dog for supporting me over the years and inspiring/helping me to make music! Love you guys!

I'm going in a new direction with my life (I'm not quitting music though). I've been trying to promote my new album The Box Vol. 2: Regeneration, but meh, not doing much. Here's my plans for 2015, and the future, for those who are interested to hear.
Summer Album/Rockstep Song
I'm releasing a dance album this Summer, which will be my first self-titled/untitled album. I've released almost 10 albums now since 2010, and this album goes back to my roots mixing electronic, hiphop, and overall experimental elements. I did a lot of that when I started out from 2006-2009.. Adulthood has required more time of me for my new job, I need the money yo! With that said, I'll be slowing down.
Here's a song I made early last year for my upcoming album, it's dubstep:
I made a Rockstep song in tribute of Phyrnna and to help her family cope during these hard times as she just lost her grandfather. I'll be adding lyrics in the future. I wanted to try something new. Check it out:
If you want to help them, you can donate to help her mother (she's in a situation):
I'm working with a couple teams developing a couple games. One of them is going to be a fully fleshed 3D FPS/Puzzle Sci-Fi game inspired by Half-Life, Halo 2, Star Wars, and Portal. We hope to release a demo by the end of Summer or Fall. The other game is a 2D sidescroller, and I can't say much else yet, work hasn't started yet, but hopefully soon, if it kicks off.
It's my dream to someday be a game developer or a film director/writer, I love telling stories, I've always wanted to make films and games for a lot of my life. Here's some pics of the demo of the 3D game so far!
I plan on going to college to be an English Teacher. With the money problems and life at a standstill, I figured it's about time I changed my direction in life. Yup...that's about it.
As you might have noticed, as of late, there's a few animations with my voice in them coming soon! Stay tuned!
Music Contest (NIM)
The Newgrounds Inspired Music Contest is going great, seen some interesting submissions, a little more than one month left before deadline! Ciao!
