For those of you who don’t know me (most of you), I am a big metal-head. I listen to the loudest, fastest, most aggressive, non-musical music you can probably imagine. Unless you are a kindred metal-head, you would probably what I find most of what I listen to non-musical and nigh-unlistenable.
Furthermore, I’ve been playing the guitar on-and-off since maybe 5th or 6th grade. More recently it’s been “off”, simply because I have been spending a lot of time at work doing work things.
Recent events have made me really angry and frustrated in a way that I cannot adequately express through words alone.
So I am happy to announce the birth of my one-man legally-themed extreme-metal band “Prosecutorial Misconduct”. (What’s scarier than that? Well, besides maybe “prosecutorial discretion”.)
For those of you who are lucky enough to be my “friends” on Facebook, you’ve been subject to my polluting your feeds with requests for legally-themed metal song ideas. Now I’m extending the invitation to the wider internet.
I plan to release an EP in 2015. No, I am not sure when. It’s probably going to sound like blackened thrash, a bit of crossover, maybe a tinge of death metal, a few elements of grind, and potentially some NWOBHM sprinkled in there. I am not great at lead guitar, to there probably aren’t going to be too many meedleys.
This is the guitar I will be playing on this album:
I know that you’re going to complain that my guitar isn’t black, and therefore not metal. But both James Hetfield and Max Cavalera—titans of thrash—played white guitars, so I won’t hear that nonsense.
Now, I am asking for your help. No, I don’t want money.
I want potential song names. No, don’t give me some uninspired latin phrase like “Res Ipsa Loquitor” or “Ipso Factor”, or something stupid like “Guilty As Charged”. You’re reading this blog, so I know you’re better than that.
Four song titles I am definitely using are these:
Most creative/brutal/legally themed/amusing suggestions win and get you a mention in my liner notes.
Please leave them in the comments. I will be forever grateful.
