UPDATE: MAGFest, New Tunes, and Other Great Things

Nearly three months without an update on my own website?! What the hell's my problem? Though it may seem things have been quiet here in Mega Beardo Land, I can assure you that is not the case. I've been sort of secretly working on a few tracks for compilations all set to be released between August 28 and October 31. But more importantly, HOLY CRAP I'M PLAYING AT MAGFEST.

At MAGFest, I will be joining the mighty Viking Guitar's live band along with Stemage, Adam Henry, and Travis Morgan. We'll be hitting the second stage. It's going to be awesome, and you should be there. Here's a taste of what's to come:

Oh yeah, new tunes. So what compilations are they?

1. Spectrum of Mana
You may have heard about this little, tiny project that has been in development for quite some time now. It is a tribute album with a ridiculous amount of people involved, and I feel lucky to be a part of it. I did an interview for the project that explains a little about my music background and my involvement with "Spectrum of Mana."

2. Vampire Variations II
This year's "Vampire Variations" album is two discs worth of Castlevania remixes. The first disc is all "Rondo of Blood," while the second disc is "Bloodlines." I'll be contributing a Rondo track, and you can hear a little bit of it in this trailer below (second song in):

And what's the third album, you ask? We'll just keep that one a secret for now :) Let's just say I'm not remixing a video game song on it.
