Many heard I was moving to Allen, Texas. Some have heard Plano. Regardless, I'm staying in the McKinney area. I've fallen in love (so to speak) with the town itself and a plus is that art is a major part of the city.
On another note, I will be appearing even more frequently in McKinney's downtown area (as if I'm not there enough). If you see me or anyone from All Saints Names Productions that may be hanging there with me, don't hesitate to give us a holler. Especially if you are an artist. I may be a great artist, but that doesn't mean I won't stop and chat with another artist or two or three.
On a final note, I pointed out recently that I would be releasing one major art piece each month. The unveilings will occur the first Friday after the month. This being said, January's piece will be unveiled this Friday (February 6th). Keep an eye out. It may be featured on some websites even earlier. No promises.
Thanks for sticking around, guys. Glad to have as many fans as I do. Keep it real. Stay safe. Everyone have a great week.
It's been hard for us. It's been a lead guitarist/vocalist and a drummer for months. Then Joe shows up, and we all feel complete. I called up this one guy, John, and he hooks us up with two shows on the spot. So, while we've been pretty quiet lately, we're back August 30th, and ready to kick some ass!
Anarchy in the United States!
I did a solo cover of the Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the U.K." (more of the Megadeth version). This has nothing to do with Wolf In Vain (despite the appearance of Berzwolf on the artwork), but more of a chance to kick back and enjoy the studio time I've forced myself to get into.
Vlogs are Back!
Hey, guys! I got back to the vlogging days! No limits, 100% fun, and more metal than ever! (Explicit language throughout)
Last week, we recorded a cover of the Judas Priest classic, "Breaking the Law". Judas Priest has been one the most influential metal bands in history, storming the metal world, along with Black Sabbath and Megadeth and more! We HAD to cover them!
Why I wanted a Judas Priest cover? Well, my last band covered Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Metallica, and a couple others, but we never got around to Priest. So, we nailed it! Hear my thrash metal band rock out below:

The ORIGINAL "Wild Fire"
Back when Whine Or Live Fearlessly (listed as W.O.L.F. here) was first starting out, Taylor Colo'n tried setting the bar by writing "Wild Fire". The song had potential, but the band focused on other hidden material at the time. Demos for songs such as "Psycho", "Remembrance", and "Road Rage". But while the song was dropped from the bill, Taylor sat down and talked about his feelings for the original demo.
"Well...it's sounds worse than s**t [the quality]. Haha! But, damn, it's refreshing to here it. It's unbelieveable that it's been 4 years since I sat down and wrote those riffs. Simplistic? Yes. But so what? You ever hear 'Paranoid' by the classic metal band, [Black] Sabbath? Of course you have. Who hasn't? I can play it with my eyes closed. Anybody could. It's easy. In fact, I think the entire song only has 4 riffs. That's badass! That's what I was going for with this. A slower paced, simple heavy metal song. We weren't trying to do thrash metal until last year. But I remember the day we recorded 'Wild Fire'. It was me, Matt, and another guy, named Tony. We used a Playstation Portable to record, and we just kept the audio. And that was it! I hardly knew a thing about music. But the song still sounded cool. That's why I want to go back. I want the original music to be given another chance. I don't expect to see it on any albums anytime soon, but I won't let it die."
The young metal head went on to state that the original material would be re-written with a similar feel to the unreleased W.I.V. song, "Nothing to Me", which is planned to be on the band's debut album.
Taylor finalized, "I was a junior in high school. The lyrics were written, but I accidentally left them in the lunch room one day. My heart SANK. Yeah, they weren't there when I went to retrieve them, either. Thank God! We had already recorded that demo. I just listened to it over and over and typed the lyrics up. As you can see with the 'Thrash and Burn' version, the lyrics are identical, nearly, with a few added paragraphs. I was proud to put out the 'Thrash and Burn' version with these lyrics, and I hope that both songs will be loved in the future."
So go on, click "Play" on that YouTube video to listen to the earliest demo recorded by Taylor's last band, Whine Or Live Fearlessly!
"Thrash and Burn" Is Live!!!
The thrash metal band, Wolf In Vain, has just released "Thrash and Burn", the debut EP of the next thrash revolution! Alright...so...I made that sound more epic than it probably is, but...Okay my new band's EP is out and it's thrashy! It's only out on iTunes at the moment, but in the next few weeks, it comes out on Google Play and Amazon MP3! https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/thrash-and-burn-ep/id692015333
Hey, fans! So, hopefully word got around that my thrash band's EP, "Thrash and Burn", was running late. Well, for compensation, here ya go!
Wolf In Vain's EP is still releasing before the end of the month, supposedly around Friday or Saturday. Sorry, I'd give you all a date if the distribution and retail centers weren't jerks.
Now, I solely work with Wolf In Vain. So, without further to do, I give you "Finale", which can be downloaded through iTunes, eMusic, Google Play, and Amazon MP3. I suggest Amazon MP3 as it is the cheapest of the bunch. In about a month to a month-and-a-half, Amazon will release the physical edition.
