Product Notes

The long awaited follow-up to 'An Effigy of Solitude' is available for sale online. The working title for this album was: 'A condensed history of western influence on the North American continent from the 15th century to the present and the challenges that precident poses to future generations', however, that title didn't seem very catchy so I shortened it to 'War of Righteousness'. The title track of this CD contains some of the most emotionally intense lead playing I've ever done. The motivation for the piece was a video clip I saw one day on CNN of an Iraqi mother whose home had been destroyed by an errant US 'smart' bomb. At the time of the attack her youngest son was in the house. From that day on, her life was different. Did we win a heart and mind that day Mr. Bush? The final track 'The Edge of Tomorrow' is a challenge I pose to the next generation of the United States (and the free world in general). Where will you take us? Can you lead us to a better place with innovative thinking and high ideals or will you continue to drive nails into the coffin of democracy with outdated technology (gasoline instead of hydrogen fuel?! and why not drill for it in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge while we're at it), economic terrorism (against our own country if you consider the case of prescription drugs imported from Canada), and petty name calling (Freedom Fries anyone?) Guest guitarist Andrew Bordoni makes a stunning, shred-style appearance in this track. Other guest artists include Christopher Konfirst (trumpet) and Vreny van Elslande (guitar)on 'Majesty'. Check out the photo gallery on my website if you're wondering where the inspiration for this track came from. Thanks to all the guest musicians for helping make this an exciting CD to produce. Overall I was going for a bigger sound on this one with as many sonic colors as I could squeeze onto one CD. As I was recording I kept thinking of vivid color schemes like those found in cartoons. Bright almost unnaturally real colors that are all around us every day if we just take the time to look at them. Know what I mean?
