All music written/performed/programmed by Joseph Allocca
Notes on recording:
All guitars were performed on an electric bass. I have an Ibanez BTB 5-string with Bartolini pickups and a 3-band EQ. For the guitar parts, I selected the bridge pickup, tuned it tenor, cranked the treble knob, then rolled back the mids and bass till it sounded good.
To Jason, my musical brother, without whom my musical journey would have probably ended long ago. To Ryan, I know I wasn’t the best friend to you, but you’ve helped my musical skill and styling become what it is today. To Anya, who has been one of my biggest supporters in these musical pursuits of mine, and to Lauren K. who has always been encouraging in all my pursuits. To my family, who provide me with the help, mental, and emotional support I need to stay sane and do this stuff. To Chris, Nick and John from Death Becomes You… from being part of the inspiration for me to start making music on my own. To James and Joey. Sarah and Heather. Justin K. Richard, and Sean. To Brian, for fixing the bass which I performed with on these recordings. To Graham Cochrane from Recording Revolution, and the dude from The Arkham Rebellion youtube channel for all of the kick ass mixing tips….they are the only reason this sounds as good as it does. To Chez and all my mallrat buddies. To Keith the “Death Raver” for setting me on the path towards heavy music. To Greg, Ronnie, and Galuzo. To Ally, who occupies a place in my heart from which I never cease to draw inspiration. To Phil Anselmo for being a badass and making awesome music. To Alissa White-Gluz for demonstrating that metal can still be heavy, brutal and in your face and be about something other than zombies, demons, or necrophilia. To Alex Webster for being the prime influence on my bass playing for years. To Scott Devine from Scott’s Bass Lessons for all the cool free lessons and tips.
