This EP is a labor of love, a sort of autobiography, allowing you, the listener, to take a peek inside who I am, what makes me tick. I've poured my heart and soul into this release, and I hope you can feel that as the songs emanate from the medium of your choice. It's my first big foray into the world of chipcore/nintendocore/whatever you wanna call it, and if fate allows, it won't be the last.
I hope you enjoy listening to this EP as much as I enjoyed creating it. Please consider donating if you feel this EP is worth it.
Special thanks to everyone that made this EP possible, even if they don't know it:
• God, for everything
• The OverClocked ReMix community, for helping me to be better than I was and continuing to help me to be better than I am
• Every bandmate I've had since Hearts of Heroes, you're all my bros and sister
• Everyone who developed the hardware and software used in the creation of this EP
• Kyle Crouse, for letting me kick this release off with a bang on NGI, and not kicking me in the face virtually when I was working on these tracks instead of tracks for his TMNT remix project (sorry!)
• Dj Mokram, for being an exceptionally patient co-director while I shirked my responsibilities to the Gunstar Heroes remix project while creating this EP (sorry to you too, bro!)
• All of the bands I listen to that inspired me to create metalcore
• My amazingly wonderful fiance Kristina, who was extremely patient while I sat in front of a computer devoting all of my free time to either music or gaming
• And to you, for listening
