I recently remixed a cut of prime pork for my porcine pal, the Lord of Lard,
, for his upcoming single "The Diamond Sinners". The pleasure was all swine.
It's available for pre-order from Metropolis Records now.
I was shocked and saddened today when I heard that David Bowie passed away. He was one of my idols and was also a wonderful person. As most of you may know, Nine Inch Nails toured with David Bowie on the Outside Tour, where I got to drum "Scary Monsters" for him every night. That was one of the biggest highlights of my career. As one small example of just how special David was, this is a photo of the portrait that David painted of me as a "thank you" at the end of that tour. It's one of my most cherished possessions. He was as amazing of a person as he was a musical and artistic genius, and although he is now gone, he will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, David.
Excited to announce the latest project I've been working on! I've been composing the score for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - #ExoZombies new downloadable content packs. The first pack is available now. The second will be released next week. And there will be two more to come throughout 2015. All of you Call of Duty players check it out on your respective console formats!
So many internet rumors follow me, and I think it is time to set all records straight to stop the lies and mistruths. First, I DID have rotator cuff surgery in July to repair a severe tear in my left shoulder. The surgery went great and I am almost done with physical therapy to regain 100% use of my arm. I should make my drumming premier with Army Of The Universe - Official - opening for Skinny Puppy in late February. Second, I DID move out of Los Angeles to Madison, WI. I started to hate the scene in LA, and built an amazing SSL studio here and in addition to all my work, I am also teaching recording arts. Other than the sub-freezing temps, it's an amazing city. Third, I am NOT involved with Primitive Race and it's been slightly upsetting seeing my name constantly associated with it. I have two new projects slated for 2014 and want the focus on those. I wish everyone a great holiday and New Years! Chris

Best described as a mix of alternative, pop/rock, and electronica, Chris Vrenna’s tweaker blends an intriguing mix of influences and atmospheres. Dark and moody, the most recent album, call the time eternity, is an electronic fever dream ride through a late night breakdown. As an accompaniment to the album, tweaker presents and then there’s nothing, a sixteen-track remix album. The new release presents three new songs including Pig-grinder featuring PIG alongside a stunning array remixers. Legendary names such as Gary Numan Official & Ade Fenton Music, Dave Lombardo (former drummer of Slayer band), KMFDM, Dave Ogilvie, and Front Line Assembly (Official Fan Page) offer their unique takes on Vrenna’s songs, as do newer, growing names such as Army Of The Universe - Official -, Exageist.
