Here's the first official teaser from "Far Enough Into the Void"...
I recently played over Periphery's song "Erised" for the Toontrack Metal Guitar God 2013 contest:
Thanks to everyone who helped me by viewing and sharing the video, I was able to advance to the voting round. If you could take a few seconds of your time to register (via Facebook or e-mail) at Toontrack's site, you can then vote for my entry once every 24 hours. I'm very grateful for any support you can offer!

Oh, and by the way, the mixes for the album are VERY close to being finished........

1) I'm happy to finally share a few tracks from the album I've been working on! Far Enough Into the Void will be available later this year... Click here to listen!
2) I'm also excited to announce that I'll be attending NAMM 2013...
You'll find me at the Vigier booth.
I'm thrilled beyond words and extremely proud to be endorsing Vigier guitars! Quite simply put, they're the best guitars I've ever played, and I've been a fan since I first played a few at a lesson with Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal nearly 10 years ago. I'm on cloud 9, and I know my new urban blue Excalibur Original will be my main 6-string for many years to come. Patrice is a true innovator and Vigier continues to produce the finest guitars in the world.
More news soon... It's quite possible I still have at least one very exciting announcement in store...
There is exciting news coming soon, including (finally) some music from Far Enough Into the Void! Recording is almost complete, but I think it's long overdue that I finally let people hear some of it. Stay tuned!!
Today, I'll be at the Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show playing Vigier Guitars with my good friends and Dark Empire band mates Matt Moliti and Christian Colabelli. If you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by and say hello, and try out the best guitars in the world!
Also, note that I've added an "Upcoming Gigs" section. It features Google Calendar, so if for some reason it doesn't show up, please let me know by sending me an e-mail via the Contact section. Thanks!
The recent Dark Empire gigs (5/20 at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, and 5/27 at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ) went well, and the band was invited back to Dingbatz on Thursday, July 5th. Stay tuned for news on future DE shows.
Vocals for Far Enough Into the Void are complete, and I will begin tracking leads in June. Progress has been slow and steady, but I am excited, focused, and inspired!
Some news regarding my solo album, Far Enough Into the Void...
Aside from a few tiny edits for a few songs, all drums, rhythm guitars, and bass tracks are complete for the entire album! The 2 transitional solo guitar tracks, "Less Blue" and "Dabble" will be recorded with leads in the coming weeks.
The next stage will be recording vocals for the 3 vocal tracks, "Disembodied Profanity", "Darkest Place", and "Swam". I'm very excited to record the vocals for these tracks, and I apologize profusely in advance to my neighbors.
In other exciting news, I have confirmed 2 very exciting guest solo appearances from 2 amazing guitarists and friends, which will be on the songs "Obfuscation" and "Darkest Place". I'm thrilled beyond words, and will be revealing more info soon.
