Insane vocals and blistering leads layered over a heavy groove that hits you like a freight train keeps you banging your head and pumping your fist all the way through.

With years of touring and recording sessions under his belt, in 2010 he went into the studio to record a CD of his own material and emerged with an epic compilation of political-controversy-meets-attitude fueled songs called MARTYR. The CD received rave reviews from Power Play Magazine, Strutterzine, and countless heavy metal and rock blogs. The CD started to gain notoriety in US and other countries, George began the task of putting together a band that could live up to the hype and power of his latest release.
Going through the local musicians’ outlets, he put together a team of seasoned musicians; Scott Moller on lead guitar, Jason Bonsangue on rhythm guitar, Erik Owens on bass and Bill Giannattasio on drums.
