    So I'm putting together my first instrumental album and I just released my first single today.
    This particular song is not chugging metal, even though a couple of songs on the album are more in that vein. But most of the album is more like this atmospherical type feel good stuff. I usually fall back on having a vocalist in the music I make so this is definitely something new that I'm super nervous about. Anyway hope you guys enjoy.

    Drums by Delta Empire and mixed by Ermin Hamidovic.

    I pre ordered this when you played a clip on your channel. Pretty awesome music, it is cool to hear something more instrumentally focused from you. This single has got me really excited to get my full LP :)

    Am curious about the name of this song, though. Is there a story behind that or just a lack thereof?

    I know Pizza Hawaii, which is pineapple pizza is a controversial thing, just like this song might be to everyone who just knows me for chugging Metal.

    Or maybe I just like pineapple pizza so much.

    Sounds fantastic :D Congrats.

    Can I ask how much are the costs of mixing full album by Ermin? I messaged him already but if that's not a secret, can you (Ola) share some details? Thanks ^^

    I was in Hawaii one time with my folks a long time ago and instead of going out for dinner one night we decided to order pizza. My mom was on the phone with the pizza place and ordered a supreme, then requested a pizza "with pineapple, Canadian bacon, and cheese..."

    Guy on the phone: "Do you mean Hawaiian pizza?"

    My mom: "Yep, that."

    :lol:


    Nice track Ola!

    That’s obviously something private between me and Ermin. However I know that Ermin said he would give up mixing altogether so don’t get your hopes up...

    I think it sounds great. It is different and refreshing sounding. I think a lot of folks in this community, like myself, appreciate other kinds of music than just chugging metal all the time.

    This doesn't sound how I expected when I saw Ola's name attached to it. But IMO that's a good thing.

    Good. I dig it.

    ^ What he said.

    Love the song. As you wrote, no chugging but very melodic instead.

    Well, to me, the most important thing is that this sounds like Ola and any artist should go in the direction that suits him best
