Dark Moon by ChrisAddams Dark Moon by ChrisAddams
I got stranded at work and had to walk home in the bitter cold (19 degrees F), several miles, the final half having no lights at all.

My way was lit only by the dim light of a freezing moon. When I looked up through the trees, I saw a photo waiting to happen.

Also, due to my tight schedule, I can't individually thank everyone that has checked out the photos, but seriously, to have the DD pop up on my birthday with everyone loving it; that rocked.

You guys are awesome.

If you like all that dark spooky stuff, check out my gallery. There's more doomy evil amazingness!

A delicate tracery of silhouette and shadows, a deep striking blue and the moon breaking through the night clouds. I can almost hear the wolves howling at Dark Moon by ~ChrisAddams. ( Featured by TanyaSimoneSimpson )

I could see a hardcore metal song playing to this, or an unknown girl, not quite human, slinking around the shadows. :)

It's so tempting to use this on my band's myspace.

(Black Metal too btw.)

Well, I'd consider it, but our vocalist is hell bent as having it on our next album cover. We're Freezing Moon...so I guess it fits. What's your band's url? I'll check it out.

Hah. Wow, sorry for the extremely late reply. Computer went to hell.

Our band url is [link]

We're currently revising the first song we put up right now, and in the process of writing another.

ChrisAddams Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
No problem. Your song has some good potential. I'm actually heading out with BurningAngel.com to interview Behemoth in August, so I'm hoping to meet some more people in our genre.

xCaedus Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009   Traditional Artist
Ah thanks. We're still not sure which direction to take. We've thought about combining Melodic Death Metal with Blackened Death.

Behemoth, eh? That's awesome.
Reply
:iconchrisaddams:
ChrisAddams Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
Yeah we never knew what direction to go in either. Most of the songs were written just by fucking with the guitars until something sounded cool. Never really put much thought into it. I think that's what actually helped.
Reply
:iconxcaedus:
xCaedus Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2009   Traditional Artist
Yeah. That's what we've been doing too. Lately, I've been listening to music, trying to gain a foothold, get a beat going and try and write something from there. Some inspiration. And when you get it, and you're not near a guitar, it sucks, I forget it instantly.

What's your band's url? I'm curious. x].
