"Wizard of Death: Story Mode" available Now 

Wednesday, October 14, 2020: 

Okay so "Wizard of Death: Story Mode" is finished and available now
in the "Comics" section as well as "Sultry Queen (Full Band Edit)"
and the unofficial remakes including the 30th anniversary cover of "Enter Sandman"
might wave to wait until Their respective (and pre - planned) release dates,

I have another project in mind (involving old demo tapes)
for the future but depending on what happens after the election,
I may not be able to get to that one right away (if at all).

May-Be, I should get back to BiZNeSS 

Tuesday, May 12, 2020: 

I filming My parts for a Live-Action remake of "Euphoria" sometime this week.
I also have "Sultry Queen (Classic Edition)" coming this month as well as
"Rainbow in the Dark (Full Band Edit)" in tribute of the 10th anniversary of Ronnie James Dio's passing.
I'm still  working on the Mutant Melvin V extension comic "Wizard of Death: Story Mode" on the side, too.

Conditions are Ideal so, Back to Work 

Thursday, August 15, 2019: 

Now that weather conditions are kind of ideal, I can now get back to work
on this album and guess what?!? I'm already half way done.
That's right - "Trilogy (Classic Edition)" is finished as of last week and
I'm ready to move on to production for the "Full Band Edit" but before I do that,
I'm looking to film My cover video using the split screen technique. This time
it's another Metallica song - "Enter Sandman" Which I plan to get done before FBE is complete.
 

T2 said it best - "I Need a Vacation" 

Wednesday, July 17, 2019: 

Now that I'm half way done with post-production for the "Classic Edition",
I've decided to take a little break until the summer heatwave lets up
(with an ideal hi of no more than 78 degrees) but in the meantime, I'm gonna
upload some videos. The 1st of which was uploaded today for the 10th Anniversary
of My 1st ever upload using My current recording software which was a cover of
"For Whom the Bell Tolls" which I uploaded to Myspace (and yes - I was still using Myspace back in 2009. Don't judge Me.)
I also figured before I start filming My parts for the music videos, I might as well get good at this split screen technique
by practicing on cover song first so that way, I know what the hell I'm doing when I get to any originals.
 

Livestreams - How They Should've Been 

Friday, May 11, 2018: 
I'm halfway done with writing  
the script for "The Blackberry Monologues" 
which was slated for an early July release, 
but might come out in August or September 
depending on how it takes to finish. 

I've got another livestream coming up 
on the 16th called "Nite Trax and Thrill" 
(a follow-up to April's "Nite Trax & Chill") 
and speaking of livestreams, The idea of 
"Livestreams Revisited" has been changed 
to "Livestreams Reimagined"! and this time 
They're done the way they *should've* been.

Think Less Rock Concert, More Jam Session 

Friday, April 13, 2018: 


The day has come. My new double 
covers album "Nite Trax: vol. 1 & II" 
is out now, and can listen to it here
https://soundcloud.com/bill-ulsh/sets/nite-trax-vol-1

and here 
https://soundcloud.com/bill-ulsh/sets/nite-trax-vol-ii 

As far as the livestream is concerned, 
I decided to do away with the lights and 
fog machine (save those for the music videos) 
and think of this less like a rock concert 
and more like a jam session.  
Not pretend it's something more  
than what it really is. 

I've also decided to redo "Livestreams Revisited" 
and included a few extra from the "Judgment Years" era. 
Who knows, I might even streams My practice sessions on 
the game "Synthesia" and Show you guys How I learn songs. 

Meanwhile, I'm still working on  
"The Blackberry Monologues" 
on the side, but I'm not sure 
when that will be finished.

Time for a little Nite Trax and Chill 

Friday, March 16, 2018:

The 1st single "Mr. Self Destruct" 
from My up coming covers e.p. 
"Nite Trax Vol.II" is out Now 
and You can listen to it here: 
https://soundcloud.com/bill-ulsh/mr-self-destruct-nin-cover 

I've always compared to "Master of Puppets" for some reason. 

Nite Trax Vol. 1 & II 
is set for release April 13, 2018 
That's right - Friday the 13th 

My next live stream in support of that 
also now has a name: "Nite Trax and Chill" 
and now I move onto My upcoming documentary 
"The Blackberry Monologues" 
so, if You don't mind, I got a script to write.

My Time Off has Come to an End 

Tuesday, February 6, 2018: 
I'm sure by now, some of You may have 
already figured out that My time off 
has reached it's conclusion, 
and with that being said... 

Experiment II with the Marshall Mini 
& Livestream was a success. I figured 
out what levels I needed for the next 
time I play live somewhere. 

I'm ready to hit the studio again, 
for "Nite Trax vol. 1 & II" 
Vol. 1 is basically the same 4 songs 
You've heard before, just done differently. 
Vol. II on the other hand is buncha 
songs You've only ever heard me do live 
never recorded until now. 
Think of it less as Me doing My own 
versions of these songs and more... 
"Look what else I can play"

What I've been up to lately 

Friday, January 19, 2018: 
You've probably been wondering what I've been 
up to during My time off, before I go back 
in the studio to lay down some vocals 
for this new covers album. 
I'm just going through the motions right now. 
Kicking around ideas for future projects. 
Most of that stuff's already on the itinerary. 
I've been experimenting with the Marshall Mini 
& Ustream and one thing I've learned recently was 
to turn up the mic a bit but without 
drowning out the music.

What's Left on the Itinerary? 

Tuesday, October 10, 2017: 
I'm 3/4 of the way done with stuff from "Wizard of Death" 
and already 1/3 into the stuff I wanna do from 
"Judgment Years". I'm still excited for "The Classic Edition" 
despite the limited number of songs. This is because of that 
playing style's one and only major drawback: You can really 
only do so much with playing bass and rhythm at the same time. 
While intriguing, it limits what songs can faithfully 
be recreated in such a way. However it's still interesting 
to hear the songs that can be done, played this way. 
Now You're probably asking "What about 'Nite Trax: Vol. II' 
or 'Blackberry Monologues'?" Those are still gonna happen 
at some point. I already have a track listing for "Nite Trax II" 
The only thing I can tell about that is that it feels like 
a continuation of Vol.1 while also being it's own stand-alone E.P.
