10 Albums That Defined Us

Comments: 4

There’s been a meme going around on Facebook where you share 10 albums that deeply impacted you. So, we figured it could be fun to do something like that too! #1: Nightwish – Wishmaster This was the album that started it all for us! A single random Youtube video, a fan-made music video combining The […]

The New Rock Stars

If you haven’t already seen it, you might be wondering what the hell is up with the above image. Pictured here is world-touring power metal sensation Dragonforce, along with metal Youtube comedian Steve “Stevie T” Terreberry. At first glance, you might think they’re about as different from each other as it’s possible to be. One […]

The Great “Why”

Comments: 5

If I remember right, it was the fall of 2009. I was a junior in high school, and I’d just started teaching myself how to write music. I dreamed of being a rock star, like any young musician, but the reality of one day “making it” seemed a million miles away. Growing up in the […]

We’re drawing closer still to the release of “Quietus of Autumn.” And today, with two weeks to go, we want to share with you the first “making of” video for the album!

Quietus of Autumn

Comments: 17

As we approach the release of our third album, “Quietus of Autumn,” I find myself hit with a very surreal feeling. We’ve been formally releasing music for a few years now, but this is the first album we’ve released as full-time musicians. The first time we’ve created music knowing that it’s not just for us […]

When is a review more than just a review?

Comments: 5

I’ve never been one to put a lot of stock in music reviews. Call me skeptical, but I rarely find myself feeling like the reviewer has truly connected with the music they’re reviewing. Subjective opinions are all well and good, but I feel like some music reviews attempt to box the song or album into […]

Born Amidst The Purple Waterfalls…

Music is like a time machine. It gives us the potential to re-connect to our past at a moment’s notice. There’s a Nightwish lyric that’s given me chills every time I’ve heard it for the last twelve years, and I can remember every single time – where I was, what I was doing, who I […]

Of Sad Demons and Cruel Angels

Comments: 218

In some ways, I can barely remember what life was like before I joined Mute Prophet. Three albums, international radio play, touring – such incredible things have happened in the last six years, it almost feels like a completely different existence. It’s been like a rebirth. But it hasn’t always been easy – and I […]

Chronic Illness Saved My Life

Comments: 5

I’ve written quite a few songs themed around the struggle between nihilism and hope, and how giving up often seems like the better option. It’s a struggle I know very well. Very few words have ever cut to my core quite like when my doctor said to me, “You’re gonna need to go on disability.” […]

“No Drummer???” ¯\(°_o)/¯

The number-one question people ask us is, “Why don’t you have a drummer?” Well, in order to answer that, it’s worth noting that we actually DID, at one point. When Chris and I (Kevin) first started in 2009, his brother actually picked up a super-cheap drum kit and joined us. He’d grown up with us […]
