Wow, we're absolutely blown away right now. We truly appreciate all the support we've recieved! Thank you for helping us to make this album possible!
Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow have teamed up to write an album together. Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) will be on bass guitar, and Alex Rudinger (The Faceless) will be on drums. This fundraiser is intended to help ease the financial difficulty of creating an album, DIY style (no label support). We want this album to sound as good as possible, so most of this funding will go towards professional audio mixing and mastering. In addition, travel fees, and merch are all wrapped up in this fundraiser. Basically, every penny of this fundraiser will go into the creation of this album/project.
We feel that we have a very cool and unique band lineup, which will make for a memorable album for the listener. We encourage you to be a part of this album's history by contributing to our cause!
