played instrumental, progressive, heavy, haunting, film soundtrack rock. Perhaps the best example of my live guitar playing, and some of my most favorite pieces ever. These songs earned me the title of 'The Gutter Stravinsky'. Anyone interested in my music should check this stuff out. 'Messenger Sends' - Essential listening.
