Presenting: Demonic Refusal

2

Demonic Refusal is a two piece metal band consisting of lovers Mercy and Will. Together they create original works while covering songs to pay tribute to their influences. Two bass players. Two vocalists. One love for creating music.

The music idea came around when the two first started talking on the web. After much discussion and constant interruptions by life events, the band has come together. Finally having a name.

Inspired by 80’s Heavy Metal, Demonic Refusal will be sure to catch your eye.

Music Festival Update

Creeps,

June first is creeping up upon us and I’m hoping that the weather man is incorrect about the weather on that day. 85 degrees with a chance of mild thunderstorms. That would piss me off after all this hard work has been done and we’d have to switch stuff. NO!

I might want to check with the adult center to see if they’ll be our indoor venue just in case. Other than that, I have no idea. The high school would be alright, but looks poor considering its a fundraiser for a local business.

We’ve had an act cancel on us, so we have 2 more band slots available and time working against us! Other than that, bands are all secured. I have to rush Saturday morning to pick up my PA system and rush to the venue.

This is going to be an interesting Saturday and I’m very frustrated at this point because I still haven’t heard from the group that’s supposed to be doing the bake sale table! It’s quite irritating when everything comes down to this one day. One chance at a first impression.

On a great note, my festival is being advertised on BIC: http://www.bicproductions.com/

I appreciate their time in advertising for us! It’s an honor.

I have gotten a lot more confident than I ever was during this whole endeavor. Now, it’s crunch time to take those daydreams into a reality.

I’m pretty happy with how this festival came about and all the struggles with it. It shows that I can tackle the worst situations and become better at what I do! Life is a learning experience!

What I’m looking forward to – not only the festival and the opening of my ice cream shop – but also getting back into music myself! I’ve been saying this for a long time, but this time it’s going to happen!

I’ve already gotten back into doing my vocal warm up practices. I’d really like to get my hands on a bass again and do keyboards again.

Inspirations are all around me. I’ve been working hard for two damn years to create a better life for myself, my boyfriend, and my family. I’d love to see it pay off.

I’m also going to get back into doing the film and album reviews once a week on this blog after the festival. Unsuccessful Entertainment will be back doing videos after the festival as well.

We appreciate all the new follows and subscribers! Thanks for Creepin’!

Music Inspiration

Today whilst sitting in my room doing business research I find myself listening to music that I obtained when I was younger that made me feel at home. When I was a small child I had to hide the fact I enjoyed this music from family as a majority of them are very religious and currently see me as the devil’s spawn. These albums lit a fire in my little soul. I would put the headphones on, disappear and listen to them on repeat for hours. These albums are what seduced me into the land of Metal.

– Black Sabbath’s Black Sabbath Album was something my father used to over play a lot. The bass playing is what always grabbed my attention more than anything. The dark riffs, the way it just set me alive was insane! I feel at home with this album. Although, I must admit I’m more of a Dio era Sabbath fan!

– Iron Butterfly. What can I really say about them except that they drew me in and I felt so comfortable I didn’t want to leave. I was definitely drawn to the groove of the bass and the way the keys were played. It caught my attention more than anything. I remember writing many short stories to Iron Butterfly.

– Dio’s Dream Evil album. I found this in a pile of music when going through old things in a garage. I don’t remember if it was a family members garage or not. But I remember getting my hands on it and not wanting to let go. Dio’s voice draws me in and makes me feel like I’m listening to a story. I would go about my day singing along do Dio on walks and while I played.

– CARNIVORE!!!!!! I was definitely a big Carnivore fan and remember being told it was the “devil’s music”. Honestly, This band is fucking amazing! The lyrical content, the bass playing, the vocals, the twists and turns. This is the album when I decided I wanted to pick up bass and vocals.

– Naturally, being a Carnivore fan, I followed Type O Negative which made me feel like I was at home. I felt the music deep within me. I could tell that music was my calling after listening to them. I loved how they are their own. They don’t need to be put in a genre because of all the different elements within them.

– Warlock! I remember stumbling upon Warlock going through more old records and seeing Doro! She showed me that you don’t have to be a slutty bimbo to be an awesome metal chick. You can be yourself, have the balls to be there and not to care what others think. I adore Doro for all that she’s done for Females over the years! \m/ Another Album I used to sing along into a hair brush and make my hair “Doro-fied”.

There are 6 albums that shaped who I am as a person. Enjoy.
