Deepest Dungeon is a song about crawling around in dungeons, killing monsters and collecting loot. Or what some people call “a great way to spend the weekend”. It’s my second song inspired by gaming, and probably not the last…
I’m crowdsourcing, kind of.
After I wrote Save or Die, I decided to let “the crowd” (that’s you) decide whether the world needed more nerd rock songs by yours truly. I am humbled and happy to report, that there were people out there who wanted that to happen. If you’re one of them, thank you for helping me overcome my own insecurities!
Anyway, here is it, download Deepest Dungeon from Bandcamp. You get to name your own price, starting at free. Again, thank you for the support and encouragement.
Let’s rock ‘n’ roll some dice!
“Save or Die” is inspired by one of the tensest moments in gaming. That last chance, where everything comes down to this one final roll of the dice. Usually, when it gets to this point, it’s because things have already gone to hell. If you’ve ever played roleplaying games, you know what I’m talking about.
Whenever I have an idea for a song, I record it as a voice memo on my phone. Sometimes it will just be a line or two, sometimes it’s a chord progression or a melody. Yesterday, I stumbled across the outline of a song without any lyrics attached – just humming where the words were supposed to go. I started typing whatever wanted to come out, and after a few hours of work – I had a song!
I suppose this is nerd rock. I’ve been inspired to try writing some songs like this for a while; since the busking session at Emerald City Comic Con especially (see the post on ECCC for more on that). I love getting inspired by talented people!
The song is free, unless you want to pay for it. Get it on Bandcamp and check out my other songs in the shop.
