Here is a list of the current projects that I am involved in. These include recording and live acts.
SIX MINUTE CENTURY: My flagship band. This is a progressive metal band signed to Lance King’s Nightmare Records. The new album “Wasting Time”will be available October 15, 2013. The project features Chuck Williams on vocals, Don LaFon on guitars, and Mikey Lewis on drums.

WELL OF SOULS: This doom metal band is on John Perez’s (Solitude Aterneus) Brainticket label. The new album “Sorrow My Name” was released October of 2012 and received mostly positive reviews (except the one dude that thought my bass sounded like somebodies pet ferrett…haha). Though we are currently looking for a permanent drummer we still play shows on occasion with fill in musicians. The band features John Calvin on vocals. Tim Wayne and John “O.J.” Morris on guitars.

GATHERED IN DARKNESS: This is a special concept album project featuring Robert Lowe (Candlemass/Solitude Aeturnus). The music is a hybrid cross between progressive metal and epic doom. It is composed by me…yay. So far we have several people confirmed as guests to appear on the album including members of Six Minute Century and Well of Souls. On guitar is one of my all time favorite folks Joel Gregoire (Stride). We are hitting the studio with this baby in March of 2014.
DR. FROTH: My solo record is almost done being composed. The interesting thing about this project is that I am using the NS/STICK to play all parts except for drums. This means that distorted rhythms, synth sounding parts, leads, the whole shebang is being done on the bass. Steve Bundrick has agreed to lay down real drums on this as soon as the Six Minute Century album is complete and I guess we will see where it goes from there. If you are interested in checking out some demos (though they only have programmed drums at the time being) you can check out my soundcloud page here:
METAL ASYLUM: This is James Rivera’s (Helstar, Malice) tribute band to his career and older metal songs. Though we only play out a couple of times a year, it is really cool. The band, in addition to James and myself, features Mikey Lewis and Scott Fisher and Mark Petillon from Winter’s End.
WINTER’S END: This is a local Houston cover band playing hard rock and metal favorites. The band features Rus Gib on vocals, Scott Fisher and Mark Petillon on guitars, and Tony Rodriguez on drums.
