Back after a hiatus in which some personal issues prevented me from communicating. New project is called "Surge Zero of the Rancid Acid Filter." It contains explicit lyrics so parental discretion is advised. This applies to all of my music.

I'm very serious about creating a real, giggable, touring act.

I share some of my own material here and on s o u n d c l o u d but am willing to learn others material as well. Some of the new tracks use premade drum tracks by Jim Dooley. May-August Sessions were performed on a Taiwanese electronic drumset or programmed.

For simple drums, I use a Taiwanese electronic drumset. For more complicated drums, I use software on my PC as a drum machine. I use royalty free samples and loops for all drums.

Aware of the issues with the videos and will replace them with better ones soon.

Industrial rock, dark EDM, some grunge and stoner rock. David Bowie!!!

Lately, I have been playing a lot of blues and classic rock but still prefer darker tones.
