2014 Album Update 3:
I had some time consuming technical difficulties occur while recording guitars and bass for the new full length album. I'm currently working on remedying the situation so I can get back to recording as soon as possible.
Originally my plan was to release the new album around February 2014 but at this point I think a May or June release date would be more realistic. More updates coming soon!

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."
