When I saw what they had for music at TI5(last year's Defense of the Ancients 2 tournament), I had a vision that I could start a rock band of dota characters with me costumed as omniknight.
Over the last next few months of playing the game, I would hear these very game-specific phrases over and over to the point they started to become poetry. I would say 'gosh this would make a good song' but then I'd talk myself out of it because I could never afford a costume and the chance valve wouldn't let it happen due to IP issues(which still could happen, please don't valve!)
Sometimes an idea just won't go away. So I made this graphic with cm on the keys, void on bass and riki on the drums and showed it to my 3k Meepo-playing friend Ikies and he thought it was funny.
So I made the first demo song Healing and Harm, he thought that was funny. And then I made Who Fed PA and he said 'this could go viral' and I said, 'that's what I'm thinking.'
So I'm going to put that to the test, I think and believe the Dota 2 community will enjoy my songs and some hero rock at events and this is where the rubber meets the road.
If I can meet this goal, I will make the Omni costume and record 3-5 more songs. I will make a promotional package that I can submit to events and booking agents. I will be able to help whoever I can get to back me up make their costumes and in general have the breathing room to make this happen.
So please, kickstart me and I will make it so.
