When is a review more than just a review?

3 comments

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 […]

In the following video, you’ll step behind the scenes with an exclusive glimpse into our music-making process. Not gonna lie, a couple of our friends in the music industry have given us some attitude for wanting to share this kind of intimate and close-up view with our amazing friends and fans. But we’re incredibly proud […]

A Record Label Offered Us How Much????

For legal reasons I can’t name the A&R rep or the label he worked for (labels can draft up one hell of a non-disclosure agreement), but let’s just say there was a time – years ago when all we had was a demo of our first album “The Unheard Warning” – when I was emailing with […]

Chronic Illness Saved My Life

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.” […]

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 […]

Autumn Without Color

The lyric, “Autumn without color, snow without footprints,” was the foundation of what might be the saddest song I’ve written, “Gravetender.” Adrienne legitimately cried a little bit while singing it – you can actually hear her voice break a little on the chorus line “longing to dream, there at least I have remembrance” – and […]

“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 […]

Of Sad Demons and Cruel Angels

64 comments

In some ways, I can barely remember what life was like before I joined Mute Prophet. Such incredible things have happened in the last five years, it almost feels like a completely different existence. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in that time, it’s that sometimes angels can be cruel, and demons can have their […]
