Pyrael composed this song for the Black Friday with the Banquet Toy Drive of 2013. All sales of this song will be donated & after the toy drive, every subsequent sale will be donated to a national charity which combats child abuse.

Black Friday With The Banquet IV!

We live in a cruel world. A world where the basic needs of others are forgotten in the endless search for "more stuff". There's these people right here in our own countries that have nothing. Some not even enough food. They aren't able to find jobs, they cannot hunt, fish etc. and they don't know how to get help. No, they are NOT bums or what have you! They are CHILDREN, our FUTURE!

In a country that prides itself on it's riches, there are hundreds of thousands of kids right here in the USA alone that have nothing. Mom and Dad try their best, but they barely get them fed, let alone buy them a toy.

A really close friend of ours has been teaming up with a really great cause for the past 4 years. He get's NOTHING out of it, but the happiness that he made a difference. We at Pyrael have the same belief. So this year we are hoping all of you will help us put smiles on some children's faces.

We are going to show you how to make $1 turn into $4 or MORE with just TWO simple actions!

First, Marcus Kane of Vampire Banquet will be posting videos. We will make sure you see them, don't worry about that. All you have to do is type the word VOTE on which one you like best (And you can vote as often as you like). For EVERY vote, Marcus Donates $1 into the fund, which is then matched dollar for dollar by his partners.

Next, and you can do this as many times as you like also (you won't deplete our stock) Hit up the store.pyrael.com

We have a mp3 single there that we are selling for 99 cents. EVERY single mp3 sold during the Toy drive will be forwarded to Marcus Kane and added to the amount raised!

After the Toy drive, we will be continuing to sell this mp3 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to a children's charity.

ALSO, 10% of the $$ from our Album will also be donated to these causes! So you see, spending $1 and voting make your dollar worth $4 or more!

So what are you waiting for? head over to our store, but the single, grab the album too! then get ready to vote till your click finger can no longer click and let's see if we can double last year's numbers!!!

Sad Day

I received news this morning that will mark this day for eternity. I've been fumbling over the words to write ever since. It's rare that I am speechless, or don't have or know what to say about something, I'm pretty good at most situations. I feel there are few words to describe the weight upon our hearts. Our close friend, producer and mentor, Mr. Frank Fisher, Passed away last night after 6 months of fighting his illnesses. He will be greatly missed. Our Hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to his Daughter Roxanne, Fiancee Judy, and the rest of the Fisher Family. Rest in peace my dear friend, Mr. Fisher, may the Great spirit never ask you to "turn that noise down"!

Hate Mail

I usually read through and then delete this garbage. But this one stood out to me. Is it possible someone who, while their spelling and grammar are not that great, has a decent vocabulary can be this misguided and unable to grasp at the content of our music? I've copy and pasted the email below.

"U got 2 b da sickest dude I eva seen. ur music is disguting n da thangs u talk bout r horribal. How cn u sleep at nyt noing dat ur promotin child abuse, tortur, sex, and war? What kind of sycko would do dat? I hope u burn in hell for da garbage u spew on da kids of da world. U r relly vyl n phucked! Go shoot urslf wit 1 of dem guns u luv so much!"

First off, none of our music promotes any of that. I (Steve) wrote all of these songs. On the contrary, they are showing you what you'd rather not see. What you'd like to not think about. I am very anti war, child abuse, etc. Seems to me you don't have the capacity for reading comprehension. Yes, I am pro gun rights, that doesn't mean I'm going to go around shooting people. Quite the contrary, I'm more apt to defending another who is being shot at. I like to hunt, I like to practice shooting, and yes, if forced into the situation, defend myself from a criminal. That is the point to guns.

It is very simple to me to see that the problem is not with my songs, but with your own guilty conscience mirroring the topics back upon yourself. Or, you just don't have the IQ to relate intelligently to my messages.

If I am going to hell because of your opinion of me, then please, keep me a seat next to the ladies mud wrestling ring. I do love a good mud wrestling match.
