Dark Empire's new album From Refuge to Ruin is currently streaming on Guitar World's website.   If you don't have time to listen to the whole thing, my personal favorites are "The Cleansing Fires" (which I wrote melodies and lyrics for) and "From Refuge to Ruin".   For those of you who don't know, I recorded all clean lead vocals for this album.

Check it out here!

"We're kicking off this week with the exclusive premiere of the third album from New Jersey's Dark Empire, From Refuge to Ruin. You can stream the album in its entirety below.

The band's third effort sees them taking their progressive thrash style to its extremes, incorporating 7- and 12-string guitars into the mix, as well as several nods to the '70s prog rock scene in the form of Hammond organ and Mellotron sprinkled throughout.

From Refuge to Ruin is out tomorrow, March 27, via Nightmare Records."
