Servants of the Serpent’s Path

One of my personal favorites, Servants of the Serpent’s Path is among the Lovecraftian influenced HadesMachine story arcs. This track features drums by Ben Libay and vocals by Katie Schultz, current and long time members of live band line up.

Shirt design available in our store, and single available through numerous sources this week, foremost through Bandcamp here: https://hadesmachine.bandcamp.com/track/servants-of-the-serpents-path

Schools Are Prisons

Another fun cover free for your perusal! Started this four years ago, didn’t like where it was headed, so I shelved it for a bit. Yesterday dusted it off and it came together in no time.

Original track off the illegitimate Sex Pistols album, “Pirates of Destiny”. Was performed originally by the Ex Pistols, an act put together by former producer Dave Goodman as a sound-alike, until he was sued into not being able to continue that sham. More info here…

No Beast So Fierce?

So the plan for a new single per month has been pushed back a wee bit, but for plenty good reasons. Meanwhile, here’s a fun cover of an old Turbonegro song I did a while back and was saving for a rainy day (though oddly enough, it’s sunny as I post this)

Last Rockers Presents Sad Sad Love

2nd show of many pending for first half of the year! We are up and running!

From the depths of the vault!

Happy Halloween! (I know, it’s tomorrow, but no reason not to start now)

Here’s another fun bit of HM history. In 2016 we jumped on the bill to open for Eva O, at El Corazon, Seattle. After we were committed to the show, we find out it’s an acoustic set. Hadn’t done that before, and with just over a month to prepare, we got down to retooling songs in a more creepy lounge vibe.

This was our last practice of four, before the show.


Blast from the past!

The other night I was perusing some old files here and came across a session we noodled out five years ago almost to the day. Did a little clean up on the mix and figured I’d share it with you. Live music is often an evolving, living thing, and this old snapshot of where we were then isn’t pretty, but it’s pretty fun.

The Search For Violet

Now that Dead of Night is officially released, we’re busy wrapping up the follow up EP, “Violet”. For this, we’re looking for the right gal to be our Violet. This includes artwork based on a photo shoot for our cover design, interior panels, and be in a short film and music video for the title track, “Decomposing Violet”.

As this song and resulting video production depict part of the larger narrative of the first HadesMachine novel, we’re looking for a late 20’s to mid 30’s aged Caucasian lady, residing within a reasonable driving distance of Seattle, without piercings or excessive visible tattoos. Aside from being memorialized in print and art, the chosen participant will get a $500 gift certificate at my tattoo studio.

I’ll be preparing a short piece of script, and will require candidates to read it while recording a video clip (cel phone video is fine). More TBA shortly!!
