This weekend the band enters Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA to begin tracking drums for our sophomore release (Title to be announced at a later date). We will be spending much of this month recording before hitting the road in September to support Vicious Rumors on their 30thAnniversary Digital Dictator North American Tour. We recently unveiled the design for our new tour shirts that will be available at each of the Vicious Rumors tour dates we perform on and once we return home remaining stock will be made available on our website. Fall 2018 will be spent finishing up all tracking, mixing and mastering for the next album and we do plan to shoot 2 music videos before the end of the year. Writing for album #3 is ongoing because that is how we roll. We technically already have enough in the works for another release so fans won’t have to wait long between albums.
Still working on final touches for my next solo effort titled “The Dark Design”. Plans to begin recording this 13-track album are in the works to begin late October\November if all goes well. A music video for the single will be shot this Winter as well. So stay tuned!!
The 2ndHellscream album titled “Hate Machine” was completed in February and I am happy to announce that it is tentatively scheduled to be released this September through SMB Records. I will release further details as they become available.
I’ve been hard at work on my Elemantis recording project and have a nice group of musicians reviewing ideas, writing and composing music for many of the 20 tracks for this 1stconcept album titled “Call of The Kindred”. Some tracks are coming together quickly while others are slow going but I am very excited to see the project moving forward. It is always great when I get to work with various players on a project like this. A second storyline and music is already in the works for a follow-up album as well so I still have a lot of music that needs collaboration on. If you are interested potentially being a part of this project definitely shoot me a message.
Halcyon Way’s album “Bloody But Unbowed” is released tomorrow. Pre-orders available now through Agonia Records. You can hear yours truly as I perform guest vocals along with the rest of the “Nailhead Choir” on multiple tracks.
I had a few years ago done a special collaboration with Hip-Hop Artist N-Depth for the track “The Batman” to be featured on his upcoming album. I was asked to be in the music video as well. The video is scheduled to drop on 08/24 so keep an eye out for that.
I always seem to have something secret in the works and I am already starting to write and record a new album. No details to speak of just yet. You will have to wait and see. I see this coming together very quickly though.
