WHERE IT BEGIN - "WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE"
For 2 years we worked on a sequel to "Lost Skeleton Returns"...and we released "When Worlds Collide" in January of 2016....11 new monster rock songs including a continuation song that was inspired by Michale's classic "Crying on Saturday Night".....some say "When Worlds Collide" is Michale's best album ever!
After we originally released "Lost Skeleton Returns" we created the worlds first Monster Acoustic album "Supernatural". We felt that "Supernatural" took the LSR songs and created a truly unique vibe - transforming each song into a new experience for the listener. In that same vein we are now creating a monster acoustic version of the "When Worlds Collide" project.
"BEDLAM" LIMITED RELEASE CD
The "Bedlam" project includes the original songs from "When Worlds Collide" performed in a distinct monster acoustic style. Included on the CD:
- When Worlds Collide
- 3 Days ‘til Dawn
- Things to Come
- The Face Behind the Mask
- The Beginning of the End
- Robot Monster
- Old Dark House
- I Walk with a Zombie
- Feels Like I'm Dying
10 of these songs were included on "When Worlds Collide" but we also have added a new take on "Dying on Sunday Morning" and have added the new song "Feels Like I'm Dying" to the "Bedlam" song list. This song will be one of two songs done with piano and it will be very special.
Demo Song Clips
It's early in the process but here are a few working clips for a few of the songs:

Old Dark House
I Walk With A Zombie
The new song "Feels Like I'm Dying"
