It’s finally been released… SPOON by Sockweb! First premiering on Metal Injection via YouTube (where it’s already garnered over 23k views!), making it’s way to my favorite metal sites and blogs including MetalSucks and many more. And now, ultimately here… UP Productions. It’s the sequel to the widely popular song Werewolf (for which I did the first video) by father/daughter grindcore duo, Joanie “Bologna” Young and Adam “Blackula” Young.
Here it is–the world premiere video for the father/daughter grindcore duo that is the glorious Sockweb–“Werewolf,” the title track from their upcoming album from Monolith Records (currently being mastered BY the master, Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer… possibly my favorite band of all time!)
First of all, what the heck is with all the sock puppets? Well, that’s a secret at this point. More to come later!
Second, the new debut album from father/daughter grindcore dynamic duo that is Sockweb will be release on August 6th and pre-orders are now LIVE!
Sockweb consists of the wunderkind seven-year-old Joanie “Bologna” Young and her coolest-dad-in-the-world Adam “Blackula” Young. Sockweb is an adorably brutal grind band to rival some of the best out there. Best of all, it’s a great means for a dad and his daughter to bond and simply have some fun together.
There are a few great instrumental progressive metal out there–Pelican, Animals as Leaders, Scale the Summit, Blottled Science to name some. Now we can add a new band to this prestigious list.
I recently discovered set and setting from a blog post on my metal blog of choice, Metalsucks, and I instantly connected with their style. I was fortunate enough to be able to get into contact with co-owner and founder of Science of Silence Records, Tim Tatulli (a great guy) who recently signed set and setting to his label and I had the honor to create an official motion graphics video for the band.
Here are a couple of short clips from the recent May edition of Standing Room Only: Variety Hour produced by Michael Leon-Wooley, Kate Pazakis, Robert Lee and Kyra Selman. It took place at The Federal in the heart of the NoHo district in Los Angeles, CA. I was shooting a reality show for them and here are a couple of performances from the actual performance from Standing Room Only: Variety Hour.
The word has gotten out and the lyric video UP Productions created for Toxic Holocaust’s The Agony of the Damned is all over the heavy metal blogs and websites. Here are a few if you’d like to check them out (I’m even on my favorite metal blog, Metalsucks.net.)
After speaking with the phenomenal Bob Lugowe, Director of Promotions and New Media at RELAPSE, I was given the honorable task of creating a lyric video for one of my favorite bands from my favorite label–Toxic Holocaust…
I created this lyric video for the fantastic song Bastard Self by Acephalix from their 2012 album Deathless Master on Southern Lord Records.
I just received a special package in the mail filled with my all new business cards. Actually, they don’t look all that different from my previous cards other than the physical address change and the inclusion of the website URL. Still, I’m anxious to start handing them out to only the most distinguished and exclusive guests and patrons of UP …
