Climb Back
This track perfectly encapsulates the essence of the entire album, with both its instrumental and lyrical elements aligning seamlessly with the album's theme. For the first solo, I used a slide ring to achieve a distinct sound, while the outro solo features one of my signature solos. My vision for this song was to craft a guitar melody with an ethereal quality and pair it with a heavy groove. Additionally, this track serves as the conclusion of the album's first section and offers a preview of what’s to come in the second part. I was involved in every aspect of its creation, from writing and performing to recording, producing, mixing, and mastering all vocals, lyrics and instruments myself.more

Misfit
It’s a song dedicated to all the misfits out there, those who feel like they don’t quite fit in. "Misfit" captures the feeling of being overlooked and standing out as the odd one in an otherwise normal crowd. Featuring a powerful chorus and one of my favorite solos, this song is particularly special to me. Ironically, even though it was the first song I wrote for this album, "Misfit" was the last to be completed. All the other tracks were crafted to match its energy. "Misfit" inspired the entire album and holds a special place in my heart. I wrote the lyrics, composed and performed all the vocals and instruments, and took on the roles of producer, mixer, and mastering engineer myself. I'd be grateful for any support you can offer—give it a listen!more
