As I sift thru the ashes of another band gone sour, I find myself organizing old music and filing the newer music to never see daylight. I'm coming across material I feel like sharing. It's not perfect but why would perfect be better? Here's real.
A song from my first demo with a band called "Sanctum" called, "Taste the Wine". It was part of a three song, self titled demo. We had a release party in a record store on Elm St in Manchester NH. I won't go into details here, but we sold the tape for $5. We might have sold 50-100 of them. Tops. That was 1993.
Flash forward 2012. I get an email from a man in Russia asking me about the demo. Apparently a copy was listed on Ebay in Europe for $18. I find this to be amazing! I can't stop wondering about the journey this tape has gone through to end up there as well as being bid on up to almost $20.
I'm flattered. It adds a sense of justification.
Another song from my acoustic music, "Sick". It is a rough copy of me in my music room w/ the recording on. This is from 2009
Current progress is working on live shows. Recording in progress for "Covered in Lies" and Demon King". Recording schedule put on hold for live show scheduling...we hope
We are currently in progress on two new songs... "The Devil and I" and "Drop Down"
So far...I honestly think these will be my personal favorites as of yet. Looking to release them before the month is up.
If we get feedback..we may up the efforts and release them sooner......
Clue # 4 is in progress and will be released shortly...it's special and you'll see why it's taking a little longer than expected.....And as a heads up.......the clues will continue to trickle in so stay alert!

the first clue is out there....So let's put down some rules. Official rules will be posted shortly.
So, Doug, Damien n I are in the studio going over a few tracks preparing for another vocal run starting tomorrow evening...Doug n Damien had a few brews and decided to start rearranging the studio furniture...well..as luck and a lil horseplay would have it...seems Doug may have broken a toe...lol...That's what happens when you try and toss couches around deciding furniture combined with football and baskeball would make a great idea....lol.........
Damien thinks its the funniest thing in the world.
No..no hospital required...he's a trooper. He'll be back in tomorrow....give him a night to get the swelling down...lol
