THIS TUESDAY!!!

LAYERS OF TIME 12.15.15

The silence has been broken!! After four years, a brand new studio album will be unleashed on Tuesday, December 15th and I am very proud and excited. Hope you all are too! Your support motivates me to be a better musician and writer…and human being too, let’s not forget that!

The track listing is as follows:

  1. Postcards From Mars
  2. Nuclear Paradise
  3. Instant Amnesia
  4. Balancing The Sun
  5. Slippery Gypsy
  6. Too Far Below Zero
  7. Jigsaw Mind
  8. Dangerous Heat
  9. Layers Of Time

While I can pat myself on the back for handling all the instruments and drum programs, credit must be given to Rosario as well for his tireless efforts and making sure each song was treated with proper care and expertise. He also helped with some cool synth patches on the title track as well as adding a bit more “oomph” to the drum tracks. This album was a LOT of hard work but the results are amazing!

Let’s rip shit up!

 

LINING UP FOR THE NEW YEAR

Hello everyone! I always say this but it bears repeating: THANK YOU for taking the time to check out my rambling and blabbering on my blogs here. I guess I have a lot on my mind.

TWO MORE!!!!

Yeah I am blogging faster than the speed of light but for those of you that are following the progress of LAYERS OF TIME, I hope you are as excited as I am (and Rosario too!)

Heard “Instant Amnesia” and “Jigsaw Mind” in their mixed states tonight and they are similar in that they both have a very retro 70s sound/feel to them, but also have touches of heaviness as well. Both songs were a nice break from my typical heavy metal stuff because they have a swaggering bluesy sound to them.

Swagger? BLUES?! Read more

ALWAYS SAY THIS

I always say this once Thanksgiving is over: “Where has the year gone?” And I also say “Christmas already?”

YIKES!

ONE SONG DOWN…

Today began the mixdown of the new album. I was ready to bang out at least half of the album but I forgot how much time it takes to get the first song together. And then after that, it’s a breeze.

I think? Read more

SO FAR, SURREAL

This was a moment that I had been dreaming of since reading guitar magazines as a zit-faced teenager…

Last night I took a trip to Barnes & Noble with my daughter, and headed over to the magazine rack. I feast my eyes on the new issue of Guitar Player magazine. I had to stop and tell myself “This is really happening” and proceeded to pick up a copy but I didn’t head right to the page. I purposely thumbed through the issue slowly. Didn’t want to appear too hasty or eager, even though my hands were itching to race to page 131.

And when I did, I let out a small sigh.
