about

In 1998 my world changed. The details might be shared one day on the website but it was life changing for me… and not in the happy positive light light way. It had nothing to do with relationships or my state of affairs – no, this was something personal. Let’s just say that the looking back at that time, it seems as if I could of possibly died and now I’m left with a permanent reminder of the event till the day I die.

This all went down in the middle of writing NOMAD which makes sense as this was already a musical odyssey of the soul. Now it became a physical odyssey for me as well. I can still to this day remember walking on the beach recording the ending track while wandering the surf and feeling my life force wax and wane with each ebb and flow of the tide.

NOMAD also marks a time of change in the scene. 21st Circuitry Records was recently sold to Pendragon Records and NOMAD’s initial release was lost to Pendragon’s limited PR. I was actually ‘bundled’ with another artist and all requests to shop this release to film studios was lost as I felt many of these tracks could be licensed for film work.

Then, almost as soon as Pendragon released NOMAD, Metropolis Records picked up Pendragon and their entire catalog. NOMAD, basically a new release, was no longer considered as such and lost out on any major blitz advertising that Metropolis would of done if it was a new release.

Eventually a few songs made it into the movie, SEX, DEATH & EYELINER and some other cable TV series yet all releases are still available for licensing if anyone so desires.

So sit back and press play as you are about to enjoy the most thrilling music you have ever heard from records.

Track Name: Nomad
i came to this place perhaps too late for the moments
seemed lost and twisted. fear and confusion choked the
minds of those around me as desperate images faded into
oblivion. and as i fell i knew me course for it was the
only way to show the images of reason and to set into
motion the change of this perpetual course of destruction.

moving through time and space the burning cold of severity
coursing through my veins. paths crossed with nature's
intersections revealing the scars of intervention.

there is only one way now. to become the traveler.
to become nomad.

copulatus angles twist sharply to hide their poison. their
roots grown deeply into the soil of the consciousness.
disconnecting the conditioning can be painful as is birth
after death but for these souls to be allowed their freedom
their spirits must be released.

and so again shall time be a testament of creation. release
the interface so truth shall seek them all. trapped in the
matrix of lies and death no more. released into emptiness
the healing must begin. be strong little angels your hell is
about to be, as i leave you now and disclose the ultimate sacrifice.
Track Name: Pretty
your outstretched arms, comforting pain
withdrawal, such love an enemy
disgusting hate, disguised in lies
such pain burns deep in my memory

who sold your soul, poisoned your mind
who taught you love and agony
your venom stings of ignorance
your tools of pain and jealousy

i don't want you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't want you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't love you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't love you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me

under the truth, there hides the lie
they want, they want, give it to me
hypocrisy, your only friend
filling your dying heart with greed

who sold your soul, poisoned your mind
who taught you ways of treachery
your final move, your dying breath
brought on by your avidity

i don't want you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't want you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't love you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me
i don't love you, i don't need you
you're not pretty to me, you're not pretty to me

has truth but died, has love gone cold
will no one amongst you comfort me
2000 year, ten billion tears
such wasted time and energy

your desperate cries, pathetic lies
feeding from schools of ignorance
choose what you know, reap what you sew
long live your new apocalypse

you're not pretty...
