Here are some preview clips from the next AT WAR WITH SELF release, ACTS OF GOD. The songwriters for this project are Damon Trotta (Vehicle, Non-Fiction) and myself, and will have appearances from guest musicians (to be announced). Damon will take on the bass, various percussion, digideroo, synths, programming, vocals and engineering roles, and I'll be covering the guitars, mandolins, synths, vocals and programming. There will be more info posted about Damon in the coming weeks, but for now you can check out some more of his bass playing from former projects with the links below. ACTS OF GOD will be released in early 2006.

Very, very sad news today - Voivod's guitarist, Denis "Piggy" D'Amour passed away after fighting colon cancer. His playing has influenced me more than any other guitar player has. His style was unique and visionary - there's no comparison to what he had done for advancing progressive metal to new heights, and his ideas defied categorization. I hope that he's remembered as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. I will miss listening to his new ideas, and continue to listen in amazement at what he had accomplished. My condolences go out to his family, friends and band-mates. Rest in peace, Denis - you will be missed.

Tuesday, January 4, 2005

Thanks to everyone for being patient with another update. I've been waiting to update the site until an official release date for the CD was obtained. The first AT WAR WITH SELF CD, Torn Between Dimensions, will be released February 22. An MP3 of The God Interface is posted on the Laser's Edge site, home of the Free Electric Sound label. Mastering was done by Bob Katz, and I have a whole new appreciation for the skill that is involved with the final step in releasing a recording. The artwork was done by Travis Smith, and the cover art is also posted on the Laser's Edge site. Travis did an incredible job with the artwork, and it was great to have him come up with some fascinating imagery that fits the music very well. Be sure to check out Travis's artwork at

Thanks for checking in, another update will follow in the next few weeks!
