Lion Of The Tribe (album in the making)

Full length 80's style instrumental Thrash album in the making! CD features some big boy special guests! Stefan Helleblad of Within Temptation being one!! I'm freakin' PSYCHED about it!! The artwork was done by the art master himself, Jeremiah S. Morgan! Lettering by Dave Kruse (KruseFX)! Keep a look out for this album! My thumb is pushed to the max on Rhythm! Lol

Sanctify In Truth (single)

I wrote this instrumental Bluesy song 100% specifically for my buddy David Jones to be a very special guest on! David played keys for THE Chuck Berry (90's) and other big names!! He played Lead guitar on this song. He's such a nice guy and an amazing musician!! Jacy Henry is the one behind the scenes sound engineering!

A HUGE honor ProgPower USA used a song of mine (The Savior) on their compilation CD they hand out!

Holy Triumph (EP)
