Hi guys ! Some of you were asking about this in the video chat last Tuesday... well, I'm incredibly pleased to be able to announce that The Reckoning (my musical project/band/thing) is back with 2 new singles available on itunes, 2 new videos and a new website !! biggrin.gif It's taken me a long time but I got there eventually !

Vocals were handled by an awesome Swede I met through YT called Rob Lundgren (no relation to Dolph, I don't think...)

It was mixed by my friend, Graham Waller and mastered by none other that Tony O'Shea.. you will know him as GMC's very own Tony Miro !

Here's the 'official', low budget video of Vigilante ! 2nd solo handled by GMC's Chris Evans !



And this song may be familiar to some of you..



The full album 'Defining Armageddon' should be out later this year as a digital release, fully available on itunes.. can't wait for you guys to hear the rest of the songs ! cool.gif

Excellent stuff Ben!!! Very catchy chorus, i like it!! And the singer's got potential.
But the video 's really "low budget" ...
I like the fact that you're starring in it cool.gif

ooh yes biggrin.gif
great stuff dude. those vocals are very tasty, touch of old school metal about them too.
looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.

btw, ''Defining Armageddon' is a killer title for a song / album.

Yeah, Rob's awesome !

Yeah the video is intentionally mean to look like CCTV footage or bad VHS footage.. also went for a bit of a vibe like the video game 'Manhunt'.

I might be wrong, but I think it should be "divine".

Well cool! Great to see a new album from you guys! Love to the vocalist as well. Toni did a great job on the master as a bonus! Maybe GMC should start a record label?
