11/12/13 – The Victory
We have waited a long time for this moment.
I am excited to release The Victory here, Tuesday, MY WAY. When Paco and I started working on this project some time ago, it began as “The Misery of the Victory.” I wanted it to be some mood music, a period piece, a thematic album pumping a particular vibe directly through your ears into your blood stream. I wanted you to feel what I felt. During the writing process, we decided to split this project into two distinct pieces, “The Misery” which was released last year at this time and finally “The Victory.” The Misery showed that hip hop invincibility, the fiery ego and no-nonsense raw boom in rap form. But behind that is the feeling of getting to that point and the struggle of maintaining that point. Blaze Rock – The Victory is that emotion, that uncertainty, that vulnerability that even the strongest warrior must battle.
We wanted to build a duality. The yin and yang. I firmly believe we’ve accomplished that. I specifically wanted to make sure this music was as available as possible, i didn’t want finances to be a barrier. I wanted every possible way to get this project in people’s ears. So with the Victory, we’re introducing Power Pricing. You can get the full product, no shortening, no faking for the regular 9.99 through a number of outlets like iTunes. You can get the product for whatever price you prefer, through Bandcamp. Or you can download the album free from Google Play. Yes. From your android phone or tablet, computer or smart phone- absolutely free, to share and enjoy. And finally of course, we will offer it here at Blazerock.com for FREE. In the coming weeks we will have physical copies for any price you prefer as well. We want you to hear this album and enjoy it.
11/12/13 – The Victory
The other day I made a post about The Victory and wanting to get people to listen to a preview. And here it is. Releasing on 11/12/13 (clever?), The Victory is the second part of the series we started with The Misery. Both are masterfully produced by my cohort Pac0naut. I’ll keep my talk brief. Take a listen to the music. Share, discuss, comment etc. This isn’t for money, we just want you to listen. Blaze Rock. The Victory
Quick update for you all – Black Talon will be live and direct from Rhyme and Reason Radio in Phoenix. We’ll be there talking reckless foolishness and other ordinance violations while discussing the album, the future, the illness and all that. Be sure to check us out AND make sure to support the guys @ Rhyme and Reason, Mattlocks/ROK/DJ LES/Fact135
Yes SIR. Its here. MERCENARY VOLUME 1. Those of you who have followed my music know that I’d never put out a mixtape. Not one of the cliche ones or the real ones. Well with the help of magnificent DJ Big Serg, we’ve finally put out a mixtape. You can call it a reintroduction or a reminder or you can just call it dope, but its 60 minutes of pure unadulterated raw rap with a fresh vibe, an impeccable mixologist gracing the tables to bring you my first foray into mixtapes. The Mercenary Vol. 1. Download it here now. Throw it on your nearest digital device, work out to it, dance to it, beat people up to it, play Madden to it… do it to it. Click below for a fancy shortened download link. But before I go, i have to give thanks to Big Serg for giving me a chance to do something fresh and to any and everyone who really supports AZ Hip Hop, Hip Hop in general and of course Me…Blaze Rock. I hope you enjoy and feel free to share with everyone you know. Without further adieu, I proudly present MERCENARY. VOLUME ONE. DOWNLOAD HERE.
Just saying. We’re now in the second half of the year, but I’ve been working hard on music. I’ve been a little quiet but only because I’ve been hard at work knocking out projects. Of course, we just released the Black Talon project. I had a great time putting together this project. We released a video for Bruno (Click here to watch) and are prepping for a video for The Heat. The Heat is one of my favorite songs from the album, but we are definitely going bonkers on this video. I’m excited to say that fans and listeners all over are enjoying the album and as we shift into promo mode we hope it continues to grow.
One of my latest familiar co-conspirators is Paconaut. Paco brilliantly helped to craft the sound of the Misery and the forthcoming Victory, which i’ll get into later, but he and I have formed another bit of work called the BP Mercenaries (double entendre don’t ask me how – shout out HOV). I’ve got to be a little tight-lipped on this project, but lets just say it involves a couple of my favorite things and a whole lot of freshness.
My oldest co-conspirator is J-Luv. He’s one of my closest homies, my partner at Workgroup Media and of course the other half of WESTERN BLOCK. Well its been years since Stand and Deliver was released. We dabbled in some new stuff for the Identify side project, but we’ve finished recording the true followup titled Pressure Point. I’ll be brief here but this is a very fresh album with our standard brash hardcore true style hiphop. I can’t wait to hit stages with some of this material.
I’ll save another post for updates on The Misery, The Victory, Mercenary with DJ Big Serg as well as Ghosts of Sparta and so much more. Rock with me!
Yes yes. We are a couple days from the release of the Black Talon album The Killer. The Butcher. The Mercenary. Excited as we are? We hope so. In the meantime, take a gander at the sampler. I’ve embedded it after the break for easy viewing and listening and because on the Internet, we get lazy about clicking links. Peep the business and cop the album come Tuesday wherever you get your digital audio treats!
