    I'm not going to contribute to the funding but I hope it gets released so I can hear the instrumental version, that vocalist is trash.

    sigh.

    This is actually starting to piss me off now. If ever there was a musician NOT deserving of any support or hype, its this douchebag. Talent or no talent, he is a moron.

    By the way, I took a look at their indiegogo page. Not only are the packages expensive as hell, but there is no way in hell they are going to raise £32,999. It's kind of a shame because I really enjoy the first album, although I'm sure Mike Semesky being on it helps a lot.

    Man, this guy is literally the LAST PERSON who deserves to have anyone besides himself pay for his music to get made. He keeps calling it a "band" like its not gonna be just him in two months, lol. What a chode.

    I bet the fundraiser is just so he can actually pay the dudes to record the album. If I was any of them I wouldn't go near a microphone without a written legally-binding contract and some cash up front.

    It shows you how either clueless or desperate people are to be in a band if Mu'min and Keene are still able to get a steady stream of musicians.

    I'd join THP in a heartbeat if the other option was to join some generic no-namer band. Despite all the haters I'm pretty sure this band still has some fans. :shrug:

    Why the hell wouldn't they? (I have no info on the the matter)

    This band is the biggest joke i have ever seen.

    Why would any person in their right mind play with him? If he called me up i wouldn't even entertain the request.

    I dig Al's music and wish HAARP Machine would actually, y'know, succeed, but not a chance in hell I give a penny to this with Al's track record.

    Whats the over/under they don't reach their goal?

    He was smart enough to pick Indigogo's "Flexible Funding" option, so at the very least he gets to keep all the money he crowdfunded.

    That's the vocalist from Shokran. Semeskys vocals on the first album were awesome, even if the lyrics were cringey in places, so he has a lot to live up to.

    Disclosure instrumental finally!

    I've had bad experiences with crowdfunders before so I'm hesitant now, especially with the turnover of musicians this band has but I'm dying to hear more haarp machine. Band drama aside Al has created such a unique sound and I'd love to hear the evolution of it. If wintersun got money for an already finished album then anything is possible.

    I absolutely love the music this guy creates, but he won't get a cent of my money. How can he justify that ludicrous amount of money when everything is 90% finished? There's no way in hell Travis Orbin would have recorded and transcribed all the drum parts without getting paid up front. They filmed a music video in October and will only release it when he gets 66% of the money? Absolute joke.

    Yeah, me too (aside from I can't play most of the stuff he programmed in Guitar Pro). With a contract stating specifically how much I get paid on a weekly basis. This dude's track record of being impossible to work with is well documented, as well as his fraudulent "skill level". I hope nobody gives him any money. Being a shithead should not be rewarded.
