Justin Strode – The Long Road Home | Music Video

Hey everyone! I know I say this pretty often, but I hope you’re ready for something different, because this time I actually mean it. Instead of the typical play-through video of a song, I decided to cut together a short music video from some test footage I shot while messing around with some new camera gear while out in the woods on vacation. Of course, the video also needed music to be called, you know,… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Victims of Infinity | Video

Hey everyone! If you’re here, then you probably know what day it is and what to expect. The weekend is upon us, and it’s time for another video. Although this time we’re doing a couple different things. First off, we’re going back to some original music, with Victims of Infinity, off the 2020 album of the same name. Secondly, we’ve added another camera! Well, phone. Phone camera. Broken phone camera that has no working USB… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Forever Out of Time | Video

Hello you beautiful people! We’re back again playing an original song called Forever Out of Time, taken off the album Burn. This is one of my favourite tunes to play, and when I was playing live gigs I would normally close out the set with this song. There’s something uplifting and energetic about it that just sits right in the ears and the mind that makes it really difficult to stand still. Hell, it was… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Beyond The Skyline | Video

Hey everyone! Going back a bit again and sharing this video from a month ago, playing through Beyond The Skyline from my most recent album, Victims of Infinity. I know I said the next video was gonna be an Arch Enemy cover, but I just wanted to sneak this one in quickly. After this one I’ll be dropping down to Friday video uploads exclusively until things pick up a bit more. Now this one was… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Burn | Video

Hey everyone! Another Friday has come upon us, so as tradition demands it’s time for a new video! Today I decided to rip through one of my originals from 2019, Burn, from the album of the same name. This is definitely one of the more upbeat songs I’ve written, with a much funkier vibe full of brass stuff going on, while still keeping that heavy melodic fun stuff going during the solo. I actually had… Continue reading

Justin Strode – A Place To Forget | Acoustic

Hey everyone, we’re gonna be sliding back a bit to one of the earlier videos from a month ago, since I never bothered to post it here when originally uploading it. So, you know, here we are with an original song called A Place To Forget, taken off the EP Disaster Inverted. Opted to do this one on an acoustic, as it’s a much slower paced song, focusing more on ambience and emotional, err, stuff.… Continue reading

Tides of Eternity – New Song Available

Hey everyone! Like most of the world, I’ve been spending a fair bit of time lately hunkered down while we wait out the COVID-19 situation. It’s a very curious time to be alive right now, but we shouldn’t just sit idly by and wait just because we’re safe inside. So I dug through some old files, started putting together some old tracks that were abandoned long ago, and over the next few weeks I’m gonna… Continue reading

Embrace the Fire – New Single!

Surprise! I’ve just released a new single, Embrace the Fire! This one is chock full of funky slap bass, epic brass passages, and all the chaotic shredding one can dream about! I gotta say, this song was a lot of fun to create, but really painful on the hands, especially all the bass bits. It was also used as an experiment for some new mixing techniques I’ve been messing with, including reamping with multiple effects… Continue reading
