2014 Album Update 4:
I know it’s been awhile since the last album update. 2014 has been a very busy year for me and many different factors that are out of my control have set me behind on the album. I thought the album would be finished by June but life had different plans.
So, at this point, my goal is to release the album by the end of Summer. I will continue working hard to get it out as soon as possible. I have finished recording the guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and most of the vocals. I’ve also started mixing some of the tracks. Everything is sounding great and I can’t wait for you to hear it!
I will post another update once I’ve finished mixing all of the tracks. By then I should have a better idea of when the album will be finished.

Born of the Stars - EP Reviews
"The best song of this release comes under the name of “A Change In You”, a true rollercoaster experience that is full of cool drum patters, solid riffs and very effective vocal lines. This song is a bit more on the ‘alternative’ side, and we sure hope to hear it one day on the ‘regular’ radio. For a 5 song release, this EP is quite the presentation card for Born of the Stars. We are pleasantly surprised with the quality of the music and production found in this EP and hopefully will get the band noticed by labels" - Read the full review at: Infernal Masquerade
"Michael’s fusion of metal and ambient electronics does remind me of the great Australian guitarist Paul Wardingham’s concept of “futuristic metal” and, while the music is not nearly as technical as Paul’s, Michael does have a great knack for crafting emotional vocal melodies that work really well on top of his electronic metal sound."

"When you listen to a solo project of this kind, you would always expect to find any weak spots in any of the instrumental or production phases; however, when I listened to it, it turned out to be a flawless piece of music."
