The ancient Dark Priest of Trent, Dgrog Jduhna, has been summoned upon the modern sins of man. Unleashing the legions of waste and rot upon the upper realm, humans are hunted relentlessly and slain without mercy.

Enter WWIV Veteran Cop Turner, former Alpha Division OPTG: the absolute, number one Top Gunner. Making his way down the hillside toward the writhing bluffs ahead, he relinquishes himself for one sullen moment to sink into the gravity of the situation...


Dgrog Jduhna, blood in hand
forbidden rituals blight the land
but Cop Turner
the Top Gunner...

these gutlusted hellions want blood

but Cop Turner rolls ahead
put the afterburners behind
the Top Gunner will never stop
until the enemy's out of sight

the Bluff of Three Skelters
host the trials of blackened ponds

Dgrog Jduhna, the walking dead,
and the devils scream with delight
the blue flutter upon their heads
would make a mortal lose their mind
but Cop Turner rolls ahead
put the afterburners behind
the Top Gunner will never stop
until the enemy's out of sight

Drog Jduhna, blood in hand
forbidden rituals blight the land
before any earthly man
his auras kill you right where you stand
but Cop Turner, you are
the Top Gunner, get up

Dgrog Jduhna, blown to shreds
and the oath begins to unwind
a view from a road retread:
not a demon left alive

and Cop Turner rolls ahead
put the afterburners behind
the Top Gunner will never stop
until the enemy's out of sight

Great track doooods! I like the sparse melodic section with the intricate drum solo patterns over top. And cool speedy dissonant part near the end (3:25~). Atmosphere and textures are super retro cinematic.

So when is the movie coming out? ;}

sqwerty that is awesome!! I wondered if any of those sounds were from the CZ. You're making it sound better than I ever did! I have a whole ton of patches you can SysEx into it if you'd like to try them out.

yea I'd love to check them out. I've actually been programming my own patches from init, it's a lot of fun plus it's like, the sounds actually belong to me or something. feels good man

lol moot I remember back in the day when you did nsf's you were insistent upon using your own original samples for the dpcm and I was like 'damn this guy moot is serious about keeping things all original'. I've always been a preset kinda dude who likes sample packs and rompler sounds, but lately I totally get why it's important to make your own patches from init or sample your own stuff. I feel a much stronger connection to what I'm doing

btw, for fun, here's all the equipment that was used between me and jet:

Casio CZ-5000 (brass, electric guit, perc, bass)
Yamaha PSS-270 (bass, sfx)
Yamaha QY-300 (drums, perc)
Korg SP-250 (string pad)
Korg MicroKORG (sfx)
Jet's shitty guitar(turned out to be a really cool sample tho haha)
Jet's BlueBottle Mic for the shouts in the chorus
My semishitty Tascam DR-07 for the main vocals

things were rushed quite a bit near the deadline, but we had a lot of fun working on it. lot of experimentation and didn't know how it'd turn out really. we didn't intend to make it sound so '80s' either haha, we were more going for a reference and extension of the original doom music(there's a very hard, intentional doomy blues cadence in there as a joke, lol).

In the intro I was expecting choked crashes as in "One," but instead...

Very good CZ programming. Vocals sound great too.

This is so damn heavy metal, the vox are fantastic and true as fuck! Awesome work, dig the MIDI guitars haha! Composition is very fast and brutal, so this is some winner worthy entry!

hey I'm happy you specifically mentioned heavy metal, you got it. we took some liberties with what's expected and experimented a bit, but one element we had an insane amount of fun with was the setting and theme painted by the lyrics...which in our opinion is METAL AS FUCK

think judas priest or iron maiden albums, like that vision of overly amplified apocalypse fantasy lol

So sick, I love the prog influenced jazz solo with the constant repeating bass line. It gets so sick when the clean guit kicks in around 2:27, that riff reminded me of something I've heard before but can't place my finger on it, but either way it was great. Killer proggy stuff!
