E*Rock - The Great Underground Empire

by Eric Mast in


tgue_600.jpg

New E*Rock album available now! Cassette via Gnar Tapes. The Great Underground Empire is a conceptual synth album based off an early text adventure game developed in 1979 that I played as a kid on my family's PC throughout the early 80's. It was an exploration of "the ruins of an ancient empire lying far underground" with no music or graphics, just glowing text on a black screen. The music serves as a virtual soundtrack performed almost exclusively on my old Prophet 600 and Juno 60 synthesizers which were released about the same time that I was learning to type in order to wander said dungeons.

Jason Forrest "New Religion (E*Rock Remix)"

Jason Forrest "New Religion (E*Rock Remix")

After playing a show with Jason Forrest at Nova last week I realized that we'd never "gone public" with the remix I made of "New Religion," which happened to be my favorite song off his last album, The Everything. So here it is for free download! I even defaced (faced/remixed) the album cover for you.

But not only that, you also have the opportunity to download the full album for free! Jason's live show is incredible, and I think this album is some of his finest work. Not as insanely break-cored out as some of his previous albums, but certainly the most melodic and always energetic and exciting. Download The Everything here.
