Mixing writing etc...

Just finished a new mix for the AGFJ project. Newsworthy I know. McBride is working very hard to come up with the vocal melodies. The song is tentatively called "You are a mirror." There are about 3 MORE songs in the works with 1 complete, and the second about 95% done. This will be an amazing project. Nothing before AGFJ seems to make sense. This does. In it's most simple form. It just makes sense. So before I am killed for revealing too much information about this project I will leave you with that final thought. AND the fact that I am writing like a madman again.

I am preparing a new package of "Altomare." This album was finished March of this year. This album contained 8 tracks from a nearly 8 month long recording session. However there were A LOT of songs that were not used. I am hoping to put together Altomare with a bonus track in there. We'll see. There are also SEVERAL remixes, reworkings, etc that have been thoroughly ignored for quite some time. I have listened to several of the tracks (whilst LIVING in the studio) and they will become available soon. I see it in a re-release of Altomare, 2 ep's, and a split? I think all in all there were close to 30 songs recorded in that time. A lot of the stuff needs some finness, and some serious tweeking. But I can say for certain there is enough material mixed and ready to go for 2 ep's.

There is no excuse on why the album took so long, other than the fact that I wanted it perfect. And I believe that it is. I was also working on so many other things while making that album. In fact Amanda and I were talking the other day and we both concluded that the amount of material recorded with JUST other people could fill up an entire album. Most of it will see a release in some form. I am posting random tracks on

Till next time,

New Book by Frederick V. Hudach...

As we approach the 2 year anniversary of the Ohio Criminal Justice System putting (then) 33 year old Jason Getsy to death, by way of lethal injection, I found myself looking for more details about July 7, 1995. What I found was huge. Something I think needed to be done a long time ago to set the record straight once and for all. And while my head may have been planted firmly in my ass all those years ago, I still do remember bits and pieces (I had posted a few years ago and I had offended a few people I stay in contact with I removed the post for a myriad of reasons)and I will not speculate (in public) my thoughts on this case at all.

However Frederick V. Hudach did write a book about this case and I have to say from what I have read so far I am more than interested in purchasing this book. Reading this book put me right back to when I was 13, 14 years old. I even caught myself a few times with sweat in my palms feeling the wave of paranoia that crept over the city of Hubbard that hot summer day in July. Anyone who knows this case will be shocked, those who don't know this case SHOULD!

I'm bad at advertising for someone, BUT if any of the proceeds will help Ben Hudach, OR Richard McNulty's defense funds I'm all over it.

The link to buy Frederick's book called "Fear Did This!" The Ben Hudach story, on Amazon is here:

In other news I am also proud to announce here and now that Jason McBride (Immure Recess) and I have formed a new project (with a 1300 mile distance between us) called A Grave For Jason. We are putting our respective projects on hold to strictly focus on this album, and will be making no appearances otherwise or elsewhere without an A Grave For Jason shirt similar to the one Charlie Sheen wore when he decided to throw away his billion dollar a year job to make a shirt that said "Winning" on it. With that in mind, have a great evening.

Buy the book.
