Yes – so I decided to add a capital letter to Blag’ard and get Blag’Ard. What for? Because I wanted to acknowledge a few things. One being respect for the band that was Blag’ard which was over, and another was stepping into a new phase of creating music. Back in 2005 I decided to call my new band Blackguard and the dictionary shows the phonetic spelling as blag’ard. It turns out that there’s more than one way to say it, and a million ways to throw an accent on it – and even more if you eat a handful of saltines first…and I like them all. However – I’d like to have this new music project that I am in the beginning of have the “emphasis on the second syllable“.
