This is my biggest blog to date. The next one I will be digitally releasing my Electronic EP under the name of Cutlery for Selenium & the EP will be called "Broken Scapes Destruct Media". Should be rad I hope to get good feedback if not owell fuck it. I had fun making it. I am moving in to my new apartment Saturday I am super excited on this. I have grown to really dislike my landlord who used to be cool & now has become a complete cowardly prick. But that's besides the point. I am just happy that I am getting out on my own from a house that seems to do nothing but suck the life out of me.

I have been writing again below there are 3 different poems that I worked very hard on. They just came out & I couldn't stop writing when I was writing them. After editing them for almost 2 weeks I hope that who ever reads this enjoys them.


"When the hammer falls"
Drawing blood from this stone gets you nothing.
Cold steel benches sore this spine.
Hardening deck of cards hold a million games.
Books hold a million words.
Imagination can go beyond your walls.
You know where I am.
Come and take me in chains.
I won’t go quietly.

"Born with a blue collar"
I wasn't born in dollar bills.
Blue collar was already on when I came out not breathing.
This life was given to me with a prayer.
Now it's taken with a grain of salt instead.
Damaged life is what’s left behind me.
Early years weren’t kind to this capsule of water.
But decibels helped escape from the old harsh reality.
Dogma never saved me.
Misery was always there as company.

"Immortal sound"
This neck contorts. My throat screams.
This heart is off beat. These strings ring.
Each string strung for 1 deadly sin.
My hands move to the sound of my soul.
Anger bleeds through the sound of my voice.
Sadness screams in the tears I have shed.
Amps cranked ears are dieing.
The record spins with out a skip.
I am there forever.

Music Reviews....

Deftones "Rocket Skates" - I must say after being a fan of the Deftones for the past 12 years I am more than impressed with there current single. The guitar work is more metal & the bass in drum work is so locked in it's just punishing. It is weird knowing that it's not Chi's hands on the bass strings but I am sure he approves of this awesome sound that his band mates have accomplished. This song takes me back to "Around the Fur" accept with 8 string baritone guitars now. It's really repetitive & super catchy. If you are a fan of the Deftones you will love it. IF your not a fan of the Deftones you should stop listening to music anyways. Rating: 9.5/10

Noriega "Desolo" - This band has spawned from Admiral Angry, & Black Sheep Wall. Which both bands hold there own in the heavy realm of music taking influences from Pig Destroyer all the way to Khanate & quite possibly a bit of Willhaven. But there new band is far more complex than either one wishes they could be. This band offers a very awesome dynamic in heavy music with huge bass tones & Bury Your Dead style guitar tones that scream metalcore. But this isn't your everyday metalcore. This is something that you don't want to listen to driving because you will punch the person next to you & create a 50 car pile up. I recommend this record to fans Meshuggah, Carbomb, Gaza, & Clinging to the Trees of a Forrest Fire. Rating: 8/10

That's all I have time to review at this point & that's all that I care to mention right now.

Until next time,

Today I have come to realize what my worth is as human & as an artist. I must say this has been a dark journey of discovering my qualities & gaining confidence. As an artist I have always been insecure with my work because I always strive to push the boundaries of myself to open up new worlds & dynamics in what I do. I feel like I have harnessed my vocal capabilities & overall skill in the art of screaming & singing.

If anyone in this place we call "world" knows me....they know my lack of confidence. I feel like this helping me become more of a man. To love myself & love the people around me who are giving me what I have always wanted. Life has been throwing curve balls at me but I need this strength more than ever during these weird transitions & situations. The situations are my own personal demons that drag me to the point of where I feel like I have no safe return. Often I feel like I loose touch & misdirection completely consumes me into confusion.

But this world will no longer make me hide away. I will no longer hide in plain site. I will show the world my teeth like a monster or rabid animal ready for blood with no fear. Fear is the demon that builds & builds. But I will be running with my head down showing my teeth with my fist in the air.

I find myself writing lyrics of overcoming these demons & realizing my faults. But in a moving forward & leaving it behind me kind of way. Lyrics that are sad but almost self-help kinda way to people who want to look for guidance sort of way when they listen to the sound waves I produce through my 400 watts of pure power & my instrument strung with every deadly sin.

I am signing off. This is goodnight to my Valentines Day.

Dear World,

I am new to this. This is my first attempt. This is where most of my random thoughts, poetry, & music reviews will all see light. I feel this is going to be healthy & very soothing to my mind to actually be able to let everything out on this here internet journal.

I also want to use this for my premiere of my different art pieces & random music I will independently release on this blog as well. Ranging from what I am known for(grind, sludge, noise, & anything in extreme music)but to also release my resent works with electronic, trance, down-tempo, & structured sound scapes.

I am not sure if anyone will ever follow this nor do I care because this is for me to keep track of myself because I leave the bits and pieces behind sometimes that hold my mind's puzzle together.

So with out any other further introductions welcome to the Black Hearted Chronicles.

Until next time,

-D.J. the Black Hearted Outlaw
