Realmbuilder makes grand worlds out of music. We have released three albums – Summon the Stone Throwers, Fortifications of the Pale Architect, and Blue Flame Cavalry – through Sweden’s I Hate, which specializes in old-school doom and thrash metal.
The band is a collaboration between myself and writer/director S. Craig Zahler (with whom I have also collaborated on Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99, Dragged Across Concrete, and Binary Reptile). Craig performs lead vocals and drums, while I perform rhythm guitars, bass, harmony vocals, and assorted other instruments (trumpet, keys, etc). Craig and I write the music together, and we trade responsibilities for the rest of the project – he writes lyrics and handles photos and artwork, while I handle the recording and mix engineering. All of our music has benefitted tremendously from the glorious leads by shredder Brian Koenig (Lords of the Trident, ex-Luna Mortis).
Editions of approx 400 exist for both CD and vinyl. Contact me if interested in purchasing (or check out discogs, amazon, etc).
