Ol Sonuf "Iconoclast" Released

Happy Halloween my friends!

Today I'm very excited to celebrate Halloween with the release of my new Ol Sonuf album "Iconoclast"!

It's been a long time coming, and to be honest, this album almost didn't happen - a few times!

But I'm confident that I've delivered my best material to date in this album, and I think you'll agree.

So if you love dark, heavy, take-no-shit extreme metal, head over to my Bandcamp page and get your copy now!

Labyrinth of DreamsMy new EP Labyrinth of Dreams is almost finished! It'll be released digitally on December 31, 2014, with a potential physical CD release sometime in 2015.

Over the next few weeks I'll be tracking the rest of the vocals, putting the finishing touches on the remaining songs, and mixing the album.

Although I'm currently recording my new solo album "Labyrinth of Dreams," featuring more of a Classic Metal/Heavy Rock sound, and which will be released by the end of 2014, things are already planned out into next year for the next album after that as well.


Here's a track from my upcoming Ol Sonuf extreme metal album "Iconoclast," coming out April 30, 2015. I'll be releasing Iconoclast as a companion CD, in a 2-disc digipak set along with 2013's "Glass Idols." (So if you already pre-ordered a copy of "Glass Idols," you will receive a copy of "Iconoclast" along with it on April 30 next year.)

With the Ol Sonuf Glass Idols album completed and released (at least digitally for the moment), in between ironing out some details in some new guest solos and getting back to work on the upcoming Todesbonden material, I've begun my next project - the quest to upgrade my whole pedalboard to INTEX cables. Just knowing how muffled normal cables are, I can't WAIT to hear how clear this thing finally sounds hooked up with the real deal.

That's it in a nutshell for this week!

I am proud to announce that I am now an official endorser for INTEX Cables!

Upon trying out my INTEX cable, the choice was immediately clear: INTEX cables offer far superior clarity of tone, are built like a tank, and have a lifetime guarantee. I feel so much more in touch with my playing since I started using INTEX cables - these truly are the only cables I'll ever need for the rest of my career.

Try one out and hear the difference for yourself: (You'll be glad you did!)

Happy Halloween!  I hope you're celebrating a day early too. 

This year I'm especially excited for Halloween, as I'll be releasing my new 9-song acoustic guitar EP Reflections tomorrow!

On a personal level for me, both the creation of this music as well as the releasing of this CD have been a huge step forward for me in many ways, not only as as a musician but overall as a person, and I'm very excited to finally share these pieces with you.

The physical CD with 4-panel digipak becomes available tomorrow, however it is available now for download.

For now I hope you enjoy the samples below!
