“The album tackles the subject of animal cruelty head-on. Every song uses guest vocalists and guitarists to accompany Kirkpatrick’s killer drums. The guest list is impressive and the production, performances, and arrangements high-caliber. Onward to Freedom’ is solid, classic American Made Heavy Metal with plenty of skills and an important, heartfelt message. Recommended.” - chadrschulz.com

Edgar Allan Poe: Spoken Tales of a Tortured Genius

HEAR THE AUDIO TRAILER

  

I have been a great admirer of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) for many years and immensely enjoy his brilliant works. I find myself reading and listening to them over and over – just like great music. With this release, I hope you will too. This project I embarked on is an hour-long trip into some of his greatest works, spoken by some of the coolest vocalists out there, who did a fantastic job bringing these classic tales to life. Though these works fall generally into the “horror” category, they are filled with Poe’s incredible use of the English language, vivid descriptions, seldom-used words, and bizarre phrasing – all the stuff that puts him into the elite group of the great writers in history. They also, maybe inadvertently, contain a lesson or two – that our selfish and evil actions are not done without consequence. The season is upon us – so get ready to sit back, close your eyes, and delve into Edgar Allan Poe: Spoken Tales of a Tortured Genius… Ted

ANTISEPTIC BLOODBATH - the reviews are in... 

  

The title track, ANTISEPTIC BLOODBATH, speaks of the way our society prefers to sanitize brutality. We can have our tidy Christian faith, or continue with no faith at all, as long as we don't consider the painful bloody price that was paid ...for us. We use animals for our food, profit, and amusement, but would rather not know about the needless, often systematic suffering that is inflicted on them by a callous and greedy humanity. "Don't upset my comfort zone - brutal truth, leave me alone". The great news is that we have the ability to choose. This album encourages us to make good and humane choices in our daily lives that reflect these images.
