Heretic Dreams - New Video Premiere!

"Religion, Just Like Superstition...Is The Weed, That Strangles Reason"

The unholy eloquence of ‘Heretic Dreams’ invites listeners to worship at the alter of their own imaginations taking them on a magical journey through the heart of a non believer with percussive lyrical patterns winding through a sludgy musical rock garden of driving anthem riffs and anathema sentiment.

Tonight is a full moon, so we invite you to enjoy our new video and dream like a heretic in...
'The Sacred Mood'

3. Mick Murphy - My Ruin, Chevy Metal
This talented, multi instrumentalist and songwriter, for the LA based rock/metal band My Ruin (featuring Murphy's wife of a decade, Tairrie B) is a guitar virtuoso that is one of LA's best-kept secrets in terms of shredders. He is not afraid about being in a now guitar centric rock band, with fuzzy distorted rhythms and riffs as thick as his sideburns. Murphy's talent with a guitar is evident once you seem him live, in often-cathartic performances. His influences are worn on his sleeve and often shirt, and consist of everything from punk, classic rock, hard rock and stoner metal. Murphy's true talent can be heard and seen in My Ruin, where his approach has added more of a old school rock based, doomy, classic metal sound to Mrs. Murphy's lyrics. In a 2009 article, Guitar Player Magazine wrote that Murphy is "One of the most ferocious and creative hard rock guitarists you'll ever hear underground, above ground or bouncing off satellites." Aside from being a song writer and the guitarist of My Ruin, Murphy also lends his guitar playing abilities to the 70s hard rock/metal cover band, Chevy Metal, featuring Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters.
