04/07/20 A new HAUNTED ABBEY MYTHOS project is available to view today. This is an excerpt from "Karnov: Phantom-Clad Rider of the Cosmic Ice"...the new novel by Matthew Knight, Howie Bentley, and Byron Roberts...available from DMR.
The piece features a section of Matthew Knight's as narrated by Matthew himself. I added the music, mixed it, and put the video together.
Check it out. It's a really cool way to experience a part of the story.
01/27/20 I contributed a new piece to the DMR blog on one of my favorite Kane stories by Karl Edward Wagner. You can read "The Compatibility of Dwassllir's Romanticism and Kane's Pragmatism" HERE.
12/19/19 I was recently invited to write the foreward to a great new book by Matthew Knight, Howie K. Bently, and Byron A. Roberts called KARNOV:PHANTOM-CLAD RIDER OF THE COSMIC ICE! I've been a friend and fan of these three giants of heavy metal literature for years. What a wonderful opportunity to introduce their new epic collaboration!
This book is a really fun read and I highly recommend it. You can check it out and order from DMR Books.

02/17/19 The next Haunted Abbey Mythos CD is finished and in hand! Entitled, THE MOUNTAIN OF SOULS, this one is a retelling of the classic story that inspired the Blind Dead series of movies.
Matthew Knight and I repenned it in English, adding our own flavor before beginning the audio work. Like the last album, Matthew did all of the narration and some great interludes. I provided the backing music and did the mix. The whole thing was mastered by Shelmerdine from Dark Awake and the amazing cover artwork is provided by Louis Braquet! All around a very rewarding release and I am excited to share it.
Official release date is on 02/19/19. The link to the online store will be available soon.
