When the Deadbolt Breaks / Bio

A vision of Doom .. .. When the Deadbolt Breaks... God lights up a smoke in a flash of lightning. Inhaling a hollow smokey autumn wind of leaf and ash. Exhaling, his deep sigh thunders across a pitch sky, rolling with the turn of his head into the vast emptiness of space and ones heart. .. .. Eyes and sweat gleam with a second strike of Gods light as it cracks with the triggered hammer, and it is done. God's not watching anymore. Justice of a torn heart rips through the soul and veins of the assailant, as does the wet breath of un-watching faith, pulling the petals from their thorny stems across the threshold and her face.... .. ..

The visionary soundtrack to ones demising justice, the painful retort of a broken heart. When the Deadbolt Breaks started in the mind of Aaron Lewis, while a member of long time Stoner Rock icons, Cable, in a dream one somber night. With Cables mutual parting of ways, a break from the full-time music scene was needed for collection, recollection, visions and creation. As Aaron Pieced together this audio emotion he realized it was one not to be lost and a recording project was born. Designed to be exclusively an emotional outlet for personal sanity. Musicians and friends were brought in to assist and enhance the recording. With no boundaries or specific styles to hold them back, felt this vision of dark creativity, a ferocious engine fed on bitter revenge, brought their skills and emotions into this, the very moment... .. ..
