When I last wrote my Deep Thoughts in 2003 it was an exciting time for me both on a personal and professional level. This was the year I planned my move from New York to Florida and it was also the year that I had released a new metal album called Under A Savage Sky That year I also found that music fans are very loyal especially in Hard Rock .I was very happy and proud of the reception by the press and the fans and the ESP guitar company who gave me some guitars to giveaway in various promotions to help publicize the cd..I was back and that year I made my first trip to Germany as a guest performer at the Bang Your Head festival. I also rediscovered the love I have for playing live and I was determined to continue to do so.
The prior year 2002 my long time bass player Ned Meloni and I got together to arrange the songs that would make up this new album and when it came time to record , Ned told me about a great studio in the vicinity of his house in central Florida I then decided that I would get out of the New York winter record where its warm, My son Julian and I came down and stayed with Ned and his family.It was a very productive time , we were joined by Joe Hasselvander and Shmoulik Avigal and made quick progress and in slightly over one month the album was recorded and as they say the rest is history and mine is pretty well documented on the internet for those interested in all the details. A Greek record company named Cult Metal Classics stepped up to the plate and signed us and the record was released on separate labels in Europe, America and also in Russia it was great to finally be back on the map!
In 2004 we heard about a new label called Magic Circle Music and we agree to record a new album for them to be called Defiance in 2009 after a very long wait the album came out, there were various reasons why it took so long to get out and I am not interested in going over these instead I simply want to say that we intend to put out albums on a more regular basis henceforth and continue to give our listeners new product and be there for them as they have been for us
In 2009 I started writing new material some of it with Ned Meloni and some with the help of our singer Todd Micheal Hall and we started making demos of these songs and we are now in the finishing stages of recording the album which will be called Land of the Dead it will be a great album and continue our tradition of making music that does not follow trends or caters to the demands of a fickle music industry .We really love your input and feedback so let us know what you think and don’t forget to check all our other sites like the Book of Face (Facebook) and My Space etc and leave a comment. Sincere Thanks for listening to the music and letting it into your life,
Keep On Rocking
