The wait is over.... the full horror of my music can now be apprehended !

https://benhiggins.bandcamp.com/album/mr-badass

I hope you guys dig it !

It was all recorded with the Marshall JVM....DI with an XLR straight into the Edirol UA-25. The same process I use for GMC lessons. The lead parts for the songs were recorded over a multitude of months, beginning back when I first released Ilios (and Sub Zero even before that.)

So some of it is the yellow guitar, some of it is the Jackson and some of it is the Ibanez. All of it is crazy, though tongue.gif

I send your stuff to my friends all the time, and doing the same with this. Listened to this morning and it's incredibly awesome. You need to get this on iTunes, I'll still purchase if you don't, but prefer that portal.

Funnily enough, after having 2 Reckoning albums on itunes and experiencing both that and Bandcamp, the Bandcamp experience is just a lot easier and most people seem to prefer it to itunes.. who knows ?! smile.gif

must admit I much prefer bandcamp and was well pleased to see your new album on it. I really dislike itunes and try to avoid using it at all costs.

Cool - I've just never done BandCamp and have an account with iTunes - I saw the pound sign and that sent me into a spiral of confusion.
