Today marks the first day of the last week of music writing and recording for our new album. After that, we’ll be moving on to doing vocals and mixing! In celebration, here’s another nugget of new music!
Ready for another teaser? =)
I find recently that life isn’t about discovering yourself. It’s about creating yourself. The choices you make on a daily basis all add up to this grand vision of you. The small and the big all have an effect. And [...]
Here’s another sample of some new music!
That’s right. This Thursday, January 26, in Memphis, TN, Order of Týr will be playing with RainbowDragonEyes and The Yippies! $3.00. 9 pm. The Buccaneer. Memphis, TN. Come on. You know it will be worth it.
We will be blacking out the site tomorrow in protest of SOPA, PIPA, and other web-endangering legislation that is before the U.S. Congress. If you haven’t already, take some time to search and read up on these dangerous pieces of [...]
So, I didn’t get a chance to do this right after the 1st, but as an ode to 2011, I thought I’d write up my top albums that I discovered in 2011 (that didn’t necessarily come out in 2011!). Nocturnal Rites – The [...]

Isn’t it difficult to view the world in a consistent way? I think that’s one of the biggest challenges facing a person who evaluates the world based on logic. We want things to be consistent, but they just… aren’t. [...]
Hope you guys are celebrating with family and friends in an epically metal way this December and on into the New Year! Much love from Order of Týr! (See what I did there?)
Sometimes pain can be so great that it paralyzes you. You get caught in a wave of indecision and can’t seem to fight your way to the surface. One of the greatest pains I have ever faced has been the kind I experience when I [...]
First off, if you have not seen the web series Talking to Women About Videogames from Destructoid.com, check it out! Now that you are up to speed, take a listen to our cover of the Talking to Women About Videogames theme song. [...]
A Minecraft parody of Michael Jackson’s Thriller: CREEPER!
I wonder why humans have the tendency to find their opinions and stick to them so vehemently that they lose respect for those who disagree. Why does the person on the opposite end of the pole have to be “stupid” or [...]
I often turn to music in order to express my feelings. It’s amazing how much of the human experience is shared, and yet each experience with a thousand of its own idiosyncrasies. And somehow we still believe ourselves to be [...]
So, this is something I shared in the long lost Just Donna interview that no one will ever get to hear, but I thought I’d write a blog about it because I hope it might be inspiring to others who have experienced something similar. [...]
Mike spends some time geeking out about some of the Easter Eggs sprinkled throughout Sonic Generations (spoilers) and then Jordan leads an in-depth discussion on Catherine (more spoilers). There is also some talk about [...]
Do you ever have one of those days where you just can’t seem to contain your smile? I had one of those days. Actually, my whole weekend was like that. It’s a good feeling, and I hope that every one of you out there [...]
We’re a bit late on releasing this one as you can tell by the MCFC reference. =) We also had a bit of technical difficulties, but it’s not that Just Donna can’t handle! Here’s the Dubsteb Guns video we reference [...]
Have you ever noticed that many of the things that are valued most in this society deal more with being extroverted than introverted? Large circles of friends, interacting well in group settings, being warm, friendly, and open with [...]

Still on a massive high from the Memphis Comic & Fantasy Convention, Jables and I discuss our comic con experiences, what games we’re playing/going to play, and what web series we’ve been into lately. Also, [...]
Rad Bromance. A parody of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance. In it I learn what it feels like to be a baked potato and that cabbage is not meant to be worn as clothing.
It can’t be done. Regardless of how incredibly supporting and amazing my friends are, I cannot depend on them to be my source of happiness, self-worth, or fulfillment… as much as I’d like to. It’s so easy to fall into the [...]
One comic convention down, 3 more to go. WHAT? At least that’s what we’re planning on. After an extremely exciting weekend, meeting tons of AWESOME people, we’ve been asked to perform at 3 more comic conventions [...]

I bet most everyone out there has at one time or another been criticized for his personal choices. Why is it that so many people feel it’s their responsibility to tell you they think your choices are wrong? Now, I’m not [...]
Chiptunez of Destiny finally has cover art! Here it is: It was adapted from this image by Flickr user oskay. The image is licensed CC-By (yay!). Also, to update you guys on the progress of the rest of the tracks, I started on Chasing [...]
I’m in a huge house I used to do odd jobs work in, except the house has become EVEN bigger, and now I’m housesitting for the animals. A friend of mine brought home an annoying boxer dog, and it ran around in a bunch of mud and [...]

It has come to my attention that even though we’ve had this song out on yon interwebz for a while now. We haven’t really posted it here. So, with no further ado, here is our cover of Lady Gaga’s Paparrazi!

I love my cat. As if I had to tell you that. That is all.
I feel like I spent the last 5 years of my life asleep and just now woke up. Graduate school was a horrible place for me. I pushed myself to be good at a discipline I found meaningless. I didn’t fit in there. The people I was [...]
So, for those of you who remember my post about kayaking, I have news. I have a new boat! :sigh: It was instant relief from that terror I was talking about before. Why? My new boat is longer and has more volume and that means… it [...]
SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE VLOG!!!!

For Episode 011 of The Hammer Klogs, I share some of my likes and dislikes concerning Transformers 3.
To sum it up in one word: Terrifying. Sure, you look at those rapids from a distance, and they don’t look too bad. You’ve been over them in a raft, and it wasn’t all that exciting. A little bumpy, a little fun, nothing to be [...]
Moved in, Internet on…and now, for a taste of things to come.
This week’s episode brings a flood of Order of Týr updates, anger about the attack on used games, and at least a little bit of a release due to some things not totally sucking. Music: FIGHT!! Version #1 from Grandia II

Get a load of this.
The hardest thing I’ve ever done is to give up the “normal” way. This past year I have lived without a job. I finished my PhD, did the job search for months, and finally gave up. No one wanted to hire me, and I stopped [...]

Scope out these impressions of some of my favorite singers. I’m pretty sure Cher, Christina, Mariah, and Whitney would be proud. The jury’s still out on what Britney will think.

We got this podcast done this past Monday, but due to busy schedules, we’re just now putting it up. Again, I don’t have my stuff all set up, so there is no intro/outro, but Mike and I do talk quite a bit about games again. =)
I did some more work to our F-Zero song last night. I am in need of another video game song for inspiration… GIVE ME IDEAS! As it stands, the song starts off with a typical power metal intro similar to our other song Angels of [...]
This week Donna’s sick, I beat BioShock, Mike’s in a new apartment, and we nerd out about video games.

Here are demo recordings of two of our new songs without vocals. These are certainly rough recordings, especially the second one. The first song has a really long outro that is going to change for the final version of the song. Also, [...]
A failed phone call to Bryce, more talk about music, BANJOS, and other miscellany are part of what occurs in this podcast. =) The music is The Final Battle Cry from our album, The Wizard’s War.
First things first – the FLAC download should be working now. All righty. So I did a little video log. I tried to edit out the junk video at the beginning, but every time I rendered it, the video started too far after the [...]
…that the FLAC download links for The Wizard’s War do not currently work (thanks for the catch, Bryce!). When I was uploading the site, I was going through that torturous time of horrible internet connection and thus [...]
Donna makes a discovery and learns the idea of the modern blockbuster video game. Mike tries to spoil BioShock again, and I talk a lot (..a lot), and for some reason I pronounce Modus Operandi as Modus Apperandi. Enjoy! =D The music is [...]
I know, I know… it has been a while since my last post but I PROMISE I’m still here! Things have been pretty hectic for me recently as I have been working two jobs not including the musical side of my life. That will [...]
When chopping or dicing vegetables with a sharp knife, be sure not to allow your thumb to jump in between the blade and the cutting board. I had that experience just last night, and it wasn’t a pleasant one. Another word of [...]
Donna has Skype working, we talk about random things, and some technical hilarity ensues in this, our fourth podcast. Give it a listen! The music is Quest for the Throne from our album, The Wizard’s War.
Okay, so we actually recorded this week’s podcast last night, but I was having to do some stuff for work. Therefore, I didn’t get it put together and ready for uploading. However, it should be up by tonight, tomorrow at [...]
Oh, yes. Practice on the older Order of Týr songs began yesterday, and it. was. rough. I thought perhaps I could just sing those same lines as Mike, but alas, no. I can sing them as they are, but they definitely don’t hit [...]
I’ve been struggling with my home Internet connection for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, my connection was being so temperamental last night that we had to postpone this week’s podcast. I believe I’ve narrowed my [...]

So, it turns out that uploading videos that include game captures is against Motionbox’s policies. It’s also against the policies of Vimeo and pretty much every other video hosting site I could find with the exception of [...]
