dpd project [Full List of Discs] [FAQ] [Find A Song or Band] [Message Board]      

Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

(Seals & Croft)
The original of this one is a vapid borefest of epic proportions, but these guys turn this 70's snoozer into an amazing dirge. This band was great, they attracted the goth kids with their dark, emotional lyrics and singing style, but alienated them with double kick drums and thrashy riffs; at the same time attracting the metal kids with those drums and guitars, but they hated the slower darker lyrics. For those of us who loved both metal and goth, it was a perfect match, well done fellas.
