We hope you missed us as we took a break from being geeks…not! We just didn’t do an episode and the break was nice. But now we are so excited to be back and ready for this awesome geektacular summer!
Don’t worry you aren’t hearing things! You may notice that the music leading into this episode is fresh, new and fantastic. We finally got bored of our free YouTube music. Conquer Monster has a done a wonderful job of creating our new theme song, Geek Dream. So a big thank you to Joshua Faulkner and Daniel Romero, the members of Conquer Monster, for giving us a new sound! It has been a real pleasure working with them. It was so great, we just had to have Joshua on an episode.
So we sat down and chatted it up about Conquer Monster. Joshua gives us the behind the scenes details about how they do their Electro Sci-Fi musical magic using dinosaur aged computers, Game Boys and other old pieces of technology. He shares some fun stories and lastly, we get the low down on their new album Metatransit. This is no normal album. In fact, this album actually accompanies the Purge Worlds comic books by Black Omen Comics. The music is meant to give you a feel for the world and is best listened to when readying the comic. So make sure to pick up a copy of the comic and the sound track. While your at it, hit up Conquer Monster on Facebook and Twitter. You can listen to all their music on Bandcamp and SoundCloud. You can also download Geek Dream for free on their Bandcamp. Yay for free stuff!
To wrap up the episode, Lee gives us a very in depth review of DOOM and it gets a rating of six slices of pizza out of 8. Definitely a thumbs up! Then Solar lets us know about all the fun events happening in the near future, including this weekend’s Steamfest and next weekend’s Imperial Ball. Make sure to look for us at Salt Lake Game Con. Have a great weekend and geekout!
