BLACK METAL BAND 2008
“DARK SUPREMACY” 


My life could have been very different if I continued with this band. Back in 2008, I wrote all the music—from the guitar, bass, keys, to drum parts—except for the lyrics. I incorporated influences from Blink 182, Taylor Swift, various metalcore bands like As I Lay Dying, and I injected the tone and atmosphere of Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir to create the simple sounds of Dark Supremacy.

We headlined our 2nd show and took 2nd place at a regional Battle of the Bands event. We even almost signed to a small record label that wanted to take us on a tour in Japan, but we ended up drawing sharks and phallic objects on the contract because we didn’t like the terms. 
Below is our one and only demo album: Holding Two Invisible Orbs, the performances and mixing could have been better but it is history. 

“As Angels Weep,” is about how the world ended because someone ate the last bagel.



“Being A Zombie Isn’t As Fun As It Looks (And It Didn’t Look That Much Fun To Begin With)” is about zombies and we wanted a ridiculously long song title.



“Tarsals Of A Dead Goddess” is about ankles.



“The Passion of Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto” is a good example of us reaching into the power metal genre and creating an anthem piece.



“Dreamt I Died” is about the aftermath of taking mushrooms. It was almost featured in a B movie, but I never returned the call to the producer because I wasn’t interested in selling out at the time.
