The band just finished a very successful tour run with metal Legends Vicious Rumors bringing our brand of Heavy Power Metal to fans in both the United States & Canada. Friends in fans in California still have a chance to see this powerful combination as we perform 2 final shows with Vicious Rumors. 10/05 in Sacramento, CA & 10/21 in Pacifica, CA. We also had a spectacular one-off show in support of Angra from Brazil this last Friday alongside our friends in Graveshadow. Plenty of more shows coming that I can’t announce just yet but big things are on the horizon for Niviane and I’d like to thank each and every one of you that have supported us in the past and continue to support our musical journey.
Beside all the live show dates the band is hard at work in the studio tracking guitars for our upcoming sophomore release. We will of course release more information regarding title, artwork, track listing and release date at a later time. We have a lot to do and very limited time to do it all. Somehow we need to squeeze a video or two in as well.
All writing for my next solo effort is 99.9% completed. Literally just a couple small tweaks on a song and we will begin recording this album. Recording will begin in the next couple months targeting a 2019 release. I have spoken with the core line-up and we will definitely be playing a few select shows in 2019 in support of the album as well as a music video of two.
The 2ndHellscream album titled “Hate Machine” is to finally be released in early 2019. I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for this one. I am still waiting for the label’s official release info and will of course share that at a later date. I will say the album is fast paced in your face Metal and you can all preview the album via the link below:
Since my last update music for 2 more songs have been completed. Still a long way to go and an undertaking like this with so many different musicians takes time but I want it done right. Some musicians work slower than others so the pace of the writing is really sporadic. I am very happy with the way this album is coming together and hope to dedicate even more time to it in 2019. If you are a musician looking to work on a studio project hit me up and perhaps there is a spot for you on this record.
If you haven’t checked out the new Halcyon Way album “Bloody But Unbowed” be sure to grab a copy or add it to your playlist. You can hear me guest vocal on multiple tracks alongside such greats as Matt Barlow (Ashes of Ares ex-Iced Earth) & Todd LaTorre (Queensryche).
The video “The Batman” was released last month featuring my surprise collaboration with rapper N-Depth. The song is on his new album “After Effect” out on Richland Records. Be sure to check it out via the link below: https://youtu.be/T-wOuMSmDaE
I have a couple other secret projects in the works that I am working hard on. Some really awesome things but... you will have to wait and see what I have in the works.
Below are my current confirmed upcoming tour dates and all my official links.
