Hey, today is my birthday! Yay me!! I have chosen this auspicious occasion to make a very big announcement…

MASTERMIND has signed with LION MUSIC (Finland) to release the long awaited INSOMNIA album!! The album will be released on February 19th 2010. Featuring Tracy McShane (vocals), myself (guitars, synths, bass), my brother Rich (drums), and Jens Johansson (keyboards), I am really happy to finally see this album get released properly.

Happy birthday indeed! A wonderful way to start a new year!

Strings on Fire update

I was pleased to see I made the first cut in the Strings on Firecontest. Like I've said before, I don't take these contests seriously in the competitive sense and certainly don't consider myself a state-of-the-art shredder, but it feels nice anyway. Cool.
