Disk Space EP

 As presented to you by our good friend Ash -- without whom this EP would not have been necessary, so blame him if you hate it --  Death*Star presents to you all... Disk Space.

Though not on-beat, we did eventually blurt out the line we were assigned.

Some people would say an 11-track EP is an album. Those people are correct. For us, however, unless it has 21 tracks (at least 15 of which are songs), it's not a Death*Star album. So this... this is an EP.

Disk Space is a collection of tracks about and inspired by science fiction games modern, aged, and ancient alike. We brought along our pals Klopfenpop and Zilla Persona to sing a couple of hooks; we pilfered soundtracks, scores, and fan tracks to craft in-theme beats; we read a LOT of Wikipedia and game-wiki articles to do research. We smoked scores of hookah bowls dry.

Here's the track list, kids. I'll have the lyrics for you in the next week or so. For now, go listen to it, and hopefully enjoy it.

01. This is No Game [Skit]
02. Space Rocks (Asteroids)
03. The Gulf (Star Citizen) [featuring Zilla Persona]
04. Diamond in the Rough (Fallout 4)
05. Command or Conquer (Mass Effect)
06. The Games We Play [Skit]
07. Never Safe, Never Alone (X-Com) [featuring Klopfenpop]
08. Light at teh End of the Tunnel (Fallout 3)
09. Planet (Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri)
10. The Voice in the Darkness (Starcraft)
11. It's a Blizzard Out There [Skit]

Don't worry; this ends 2015 and begins 2016 for us, but we've got more in the works. We were working on this while working on a few other things, too. - 3PO

Words are Wind EP

Words are Wind, the A Song of Ice and Fire EP sampler, is now available online at the low, low price of "Meh, whatever".

The goal of this EP was to serve as a selection of Westeros-inspired tracks that will later be split up to inspire themed EPs for different aspects of George R.R. Martin's series, and we hope we've accurately captured the story and feel of both the novels and the Game of Thrones television show.

 Go listen. Time is short. Winter is Coming.



Words are Wind

A few of you were odd enough ducks to pick up a copy of our Norwescon-exclusive EP, "Words are Wind", which contains our tributes to George R.R. Martin's epic series, A Song of Ice and Fire. We're huge fans (except Bill Beats, who can't read due to not caring at all about words), and we had a great time creating these tracks. Eventually they'll each find their way onto a themed EP for the setting, but for now they exist in the hands of a very slim few.

That said, those few lack a track list for the EP. Sorry about that.

01. Blackwater
02. Dragons, Wargs, and Three-Eyed Crows
03. Playing the Role [Skit] 
04. VoD: aSoIaF [featuring Press B]
05. Oak and Iron, Guard Me Well 
06. Envy, Lust, and Low Cunning [Skit] 
07. Though All Men Do Despise Us 
08. The North Remembers
09. Bill Beats is a Huge Fan [Skit]

Lyrics are forthcoming; I don't have time to post them at the moment, but I will within the week. EDIT: Lyrics are present, so I'm as good as my word. - 3PO
