07.2010: Edifice album "Arc Mentis" is complete - now back to "Workaholics Autonomous"
Thanks to everyone who has been so patient for the release of the new Rustcycle album. The Edifice album is now being manufactured and I'm back to working on "Workaholics Autonomous." Along the journey of creating "Arc Mentis" with Edifice, I've revamped much of my studio and have new tricks and techniques to incorporate into the Rustcycle material. Some time away from my solo material has done it some good - the compositions are getting some changes for the better now that I have fresh ears.
