Raven

I’ve put my emotions into my work for as long as I can remember. It’s therapeutic and without it I might’ve been found lying in a ditch somewhere.  Raven is a pessimistic love song that reminds us that everything comes to an end even if it seems invincible.  It’s the only thing that is certain, to live is to die and to die is to be expected.   Written and produced by K’noup Strings by Dave Eggar Additional guitars by Johnny Nice Recorded…

NOSEDIVE and the Art of Crashing Planes

Like many others, I have spent countless hours in the friendly skies traveling from point A to point B. However, for the unlucky batch or the minority of travelers, the skies can be anything but friendly; whether a hijack/terrorist takeover, a major engine failure or even a plane at the hands of a deranged pilot, flying can be one of the most helpless and terrifying feeling a person can ever experience. This is where adrenaline and fear combine for the…

The Game

Starlord

Shortly after the release of our debut single, Tsunami, neoteric project of mine BLACKMORE began working on our next track entitled STARLORD.  With Yury Anisonyan once again in the producer’s chair, we agreed that pushing forth a more brutal tone was in the strategical priority and incorporating duel 7 string guitars fortified just that.  From the curious 8 bit intro to the mammoth guitar riff to the memorable chorus, Starlord is a juggernaut that aims to please any avid metal listener and it…
