the music of Robert J.A. MacDonald

***please judge my music based on the songwriting, not my home-studio production capabilities. im here as a songwriter not a producer. thanx!

...The demo albums of robert j.a. macdonald.

i enjoy combining a variety of influences into the music, from the intensity of black metal, to the quietness of folk, but with the accessibility of melodic hard rock. I like fat harmonizing grooves, charging tempos, and nice long solo sections. I love technical riffs, songs that challenge my abilities. I find that one can describe an emotional idea in greater detail when more notes are involved. (harmonies and scale riffs, etc...) But don't get me wrong, I also find that simplicity is the key to accessibility!

i've been writing music most of my life, and recording for the last 11 years. I try to do 1 album a year, and i am always writing new stuff. I have 9 full-length albums, and mountains of material yet to be recorded! Tho I still call all these tracks ‘demos’, (because im yet to record anything professionally), the over all quality of my production keeps getting better, so I am happy.

***my newest album is 'the witch's robe' METAL 2013, and a new double rock album is in the works! I like being able to record my own stuff, it allows me to have total creative control, every possible idea can become a reality.

Thank you for stopping by and having a listen! and feel free to contact me at:
