About

Maxxxwell Carlisle, solo artist and lead guitarist of Hellion, who critics have described as, "an ode to all things metal", "skips to the front of the guitar god line" and "the soundtrack for leading your minions into a battle to the death", is on the verge of releasing his 5th solo album!

Featuring his band of metal immortals, Melody Schoenfeld (Vocals), Dave Chedrick (Drums) and Gene Migaki (Bass), the new album entitled "Thunder Dragon 2155" will be a full-length concept album. This 10 seamless track album will tell an epic story of triumph, tragedy, deception and ultimate victory!

A firm believer in being close to his fans, Maxxxwell is inviting all who will stand tall in the name of metal to be part of the creation of this new album!

I'm sure most of you are aware of the high costs of producing an album of this magnitude. From recording studio fees, mixing, mastering, original artwork, equipment rentals, photo shoots, legal fees, CD manufacturing, etc. The expenses are almost endless. This will not only be the most ambitious Maxxxwell Carlisle album, but also the most expensive! The concept album nature of this project (each song leading seamlessly into the next) requires extreme attention to detail and an unusually lengthy mixing process. There are no short-cuts when it comes to crafting an epic metal album!

We are trying to raise $8,500 for the production of this album! This is a relative bargain in the world of music production. If/when we reach that goal we will shoot for a stretch goal that will provide the additional funding for a music video!

With your help we can produce this album to it's full metal potential! Join us today!

Risks and challenges
