You may have seen through facebook or twitter that I'll be recording vocals for a project called 3-Hole Face. Well, 3-Hole Face was an industrial metal band that lasted from 2000-2004, during which I was the lead guitarist. Terry Smith, the mastermind behind 3-Hole Face and the dude the masters all the Mega Beardo stuff, has stockpiled a bunch of new tunes that he wants me to sing on. So that's happening this year.
BUT check this out! I was doing some spring cleaning and happened upon a pile of VHS and cassette tapes that I squirreled away for some reason or another. On one of those VHS tapes was a 3-Hole Face show from 2002 that had no audio. And on one of those audio cassettes was the soundboard audio from that very show! So through the wonders of cheap modern technology, I was able to sync them up and post a couple of the tracks on Youtube for your viewing pleasure. This is a good chance to get a good idea where I got my start. In case you don't recognize me, I'm the dude with the long hair, the black SG, and the Dimebag Darrell beard.
"Dollars For Blood"
As far as I know, we were pretty much the only industrial metal band in West Virginia at the time aside from another awesome band called Screw-Worm (and I haven't heard of any since). Needless to say, coming to a show and seeing some small-town boys all painted up with highlighters and playing crazy industrial metal was something quite different for the Morgantown scene. Unfortunately, we had to call it quits after 2004, although we played a one-off reunion show in 2010 to help raise money for cancer research. But you'll get new 3-Hole Face tunes hopefully by the end of the year! So there's that.
