With the Ol Sonuf Glass Idols album completed and released (at least digitally for the moment), in between ironing out some details in some new guest solos and getting back to work on the upcoming Todesbonden material, I've begun my next project - the quest to upgrade my whole pedalboard to INTEX cables. Just knowing how muffled normal cables are, I can't WAIT to hear how clear this thing finally sounds hooked up with the real deal.
That's it in a nutshell for this week!
Happy Halloween my friends! -- Ol Sonuf's long-awaited "Glass Idols" has finally arrived!
If you're a fan of classic guitar-driven melodic death metal, symphonic black metal, doom, and neoclassical SHRED, listen and get your copy now!
Or, if you'd like a physical copy of the CD, those are still coming! They'll be available by December 31, 2013.
Pre-order your physical copy NOW and you'll get the MP3s now to listen to, and you'll get a signed copy of the CD when they are printed.
There are 3 more songs to finish recording the vocals for, and then it's time to mix!
Although the Kickstarter campaign was not successfully funded, GLASS IDOLS will still be released digitally ON HALLOWEEN regardless of potential delays in pressing the physical CDs.
If you have pre-ordered a CD, I will contact you privately via email to discuss whether you would like to still receive a physical CD when they are pressed, or whether you would like to receive only the downloadable format and a partial refund.
Thank you to all who pledged - although the campaign was not successful your support will be remembered and is highly appreciated.
Here are some tracks from the upcoming CD for you to get a taste of what is to come. Enjoy!

Getting his start on the guitar in early 1992, Jason has been playing professionally since 2001, and has been primarily playing 7-string guitars ever since that time.
In 2004 Jason co-founded the band Todesbonden with his wife and long-time bandmate from past bands Laurie Ann Haus (vocalist of Autumn Tears; Starcraft II soundtrack, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm soundtrack, etc), and later that year following the success of their self-produced demo "Stormbringer," Todesbonden signed with German record label Prophecy Productions, releasing their critically-acclaimed debut LP "Sleep Now, Quiet Forest" worldwide in June 2008.
Over the years, Jason has performed for crowds of over 500 people, with his bands sharing the stage with such notable acts as Amon Amarth (2001), Symphony X (2003), Therion (2005), Genitorturers (2005), The Gathering (2006), Moonspell (2008), and Epica (2010).
In October 2012 Jason self-released his 9-song solo acoustic guitar EP "Reflections," showing a completely different side of his playing that goes well beyond just metal.
He is currently completing co-writing the material for 2 simultaneous Todesbonden CDs, as well as composing and performing guitars and vocals for his own symphonic extreme metal one-man-band Ol Sonuf, whose debut LP "Glass Idols" will be released on Halloween 2013. (Pre-order "Glass Idols" now by clicking on the link above and get an exclusive sneak preview of one of the songs from the album.)
Jason has also composed music for two scenes in National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus (2010) starring Will Sasso.
