Another things Ben:

DOn't make us wait another 8 years for the next album! Only Blind Guardian are allowed to take breaks this long... ph34r.gif


Fear not !! I'm already working on the second album. Albums 2 and 3 are already recorded in demo format.. just need to spruce them up and re-record all stringed instruments ! Oh, and vocals of course wink.gif

At last.. 8 years after the inception of The Reckoning, I am proud to say that the debut album 'Defining Armageddon' is officially released today, Saturday 1st December 2012 !

The album is available only on itunes here

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/defining-...don/id582769836

Here's a couple of tracks from the album, featuring a couple of names you may recognise.. Daniel Realpe and Piotr Kaczor

Wall of Eyes, Daniel Realpe takes the 2nd solo !!



Hour of Lament, Piotr Kaczor also takes the 2nd solo !!



I've been asked a lot about releasing the album on cd but the time isn't right yet because 1. I can't afford it and 2. I'd probably only sell about 10 and be left with hundreds of cd's I can't shift so for the time being it's digital only smile.gif

Hope you guys like it.. now you finally get to hear exactly the kind of thing I write and how I play !


Yesssss,i like it!!...it sound verry well. cool.gif

Thanks D !

I hope more people take the time to look at the song art and get a deeper meaning behind things. With everything being on the internet there is less demand for cd's and the booklets that come with them. I think music is even better if it can conjure up an image or an atmosphere and I'm using my own site and my art to try to do that smile.gif
