The Cyanide Blog

Hi everyone! I’m back to update my Cyanide Blog for the month of April. I know I’m a few days late here. Sorry about that. I got a bit side tracked. Its life. Lets get to it then.

MUSIC: I’m deep into the process of learning 11 songs with the band Epsilon Eridani. the band members are Mike Mariani on vocals, Scotty The Body on guitars and A.J. Spinelli on drums. They are all some of the most talented people I’ve had the pleasure of working with and so far its going great. Its been an exciting challenge but I’m up for it! Keep up with my social media and give a like to the Epsilon Eridani Facebook page for updates on all the progress. I’ve also been busy with doing cover material with Barbara Chiavelli on vocals, Scotty The Body on guitars and Jon Seymour on drums. We’re doing all different classic rock and metal material. We have yet to name the band but its coming along very nicely and we can’t wait to get out and play some shows. The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project is still going as strong as ever. I’m working on my next release which will be a 4 song EP of my usual Industrial Metal style but I’ve decided to use only 8 string bass on all the songs. I currently have 2 songs written and I’m  just getting some riffs down for the 3rd and 4th. as soon as thats done, I can start with the industrial backing tracks. Usually what happens there is that the songs evolve even further and new ideas spring up. I want to try and keep it to 4 sings but you never know what can happen.

SHOWS: As of now, I have 1 confirmed show for The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project. We’ll be at Dingbatz in New Jersey April 17th. I’ll be sharing the stage with friends Dark Reverence and for the first time The Wedding Funeral. The details are that its a seated event at 50% capacity with masks required. Hey its a start! Its also kind of cool that the last show I played before Covid 19 was also at Dingbatz so its fitting that first show back will be at the same venue. Also can’t forget to mention that Shannon Fatale will be joining me with her awesome dancing during my set. Other then thhat show I have another live stream event in the works for May 30th. The weather should be a lot nicer by then and if it doesn’t rain, it will be an outdoor show in my back yard. I have a lot of cool props and things I want to try out and will be joined by Shannon Fatale dancing and Matt on the DJ mixer. I’ll be sure to get lots of video during this one and even may havve a few friends over for some BBQ too. We’ll see.

MERCH: As I’ve mentioned many times before I’ve been hesitant on doing face masks.  I was hoping things would change and there would be little to no need for them but it seems that won’t be happening. Sooo.. I’ve pulled the trigger and The Chris Cyanide Bass Solo Project masks should be arriving within a couple of days. They will be black with my green logo and $12 each. That price includes shipping in the USA only. I’ll have them here in the shop section and pics up as soon as they arrive. My t shirts and Cyanide Hats are also still available as well as both my albums “Bassic Evil” and “Don’t Look In The Bassment” in CD or digital formats also in the shop  section. All your support helps me to continue doing what I do and us much appreciated. 

That’s about it for now. Keep up with my social media for any new updates and stay safe.     — Cyanide out
