Dr. Zilog

8-Bit Experimental Metal

ACTIVE SINCE: 2007

BIO

Dr. Zilog is the culmination of years worth of listening to video game music, headbanging to death/thrash metal and being influenced by the musical insanity of Mr. Bungle, Frank Zappa, Ween and many others.

Originally started in the summer of 2007, I set out with the goal of creating something I'd wanted to hear for a long time, 8-Bit Death and Experimental Metal.

I started by messing around with riffs I'd written on guitar and transcribing them into little chip melodies note by note.

After finally overlaying all these different parts I created my first album of 12 songs,
The Satellite of Love.

Album after album I slowly learned the electronic music creation process and refined my sound of primarily chiptune and programmed drums.

After years of writing all of this music, I got the urge to actually be able to perform it live in some way. So I switched my sound to include guitar parts with the chiptune music and drums.

I try to create tunes that any metalhead gamer could get into, Hope you enjoy listening to my music as much as I enjoy making it!
