Morning Star: Soul Of The Beast (2004)
The story behind this release is after being dropped from Psychopathic Records, I planned on releasing the Second Book of my Pandora Zodiac series, which was called “Pale Horse: Night of the Living Dead.” It was already complete and ready to go with only a few technical adjustments needing to be made. I was getting raked over the coals for Hunting Season and after the disappointing creation of the original Haunt of Fear, I decided enough was enough and took mixing duties into my own hands. I stripped everything away and built my own mixing set up. I studied as much material and tutorials as I could and dumped tons of money into my set up, christening it “Area 51 Music.” I scrapped the Pandora Zodiac Saga in favor of the “Gospels of the Apocalypse,” starting with this album. A new Co-manager came into the fray when he heard the new music and hopped aboard the newly found Deviant Productions after a bitter split from Fallen Ent. This album would get me some serious notice from a lot of heavyweights in the music industry including Interscope, Geffen and Capitol. Even Psychopathic took notice a year later, but that’s another story for another post.
