Heaven's Falls was released on May 1st 2013, May Day, and it features songs about love, loss, and hate. Love is a powerful emotion that both inspires and motivates, and if unfulfilled can evoke both envy and hate, these two sides of such a powerful emotion has been the source of much inspiration.

The VooDoo Love EP is a sound track for a mini series of music videos about a Zombie in New Orleans.
The VDL EP centers in the macabre history of New Orleans and its Voodoo legends. It's a story of merchant gentlemen who has succumb to the powers of the Zombie Curse. At first ill, he then becomes comatose. He is eventually pronounced dead and is then buried. The powerful VooDoo Queen who entombed him was killed before she cold retrieve him and complete the curse. So our victim, the sleeping Zombie, was forgotten over many years. Suddenly, he is awakened by a powerful storm that brakes open his tomb freeing him. He finds himself in a nightmarish world as a Zombie. Amazingly he still retains his youthful appearance due to the sustaining powers of the Zombie curse and the powerful Queen who damned him. He has also gained new perceptions that extend his vision to detect ghosts. Trapped between two planes, that of the living and that of the unbound souls who wander through the still standing buildings of an old city. It has been a least a hundred year since he was pronounced dead. This now anachronistic man roams our streets and judges our souls to choose his victims. Through the eyes of the Zombie he is inundated with sights and sounds of the past co-mingled with the present. He searches of his loved ones, his family, or their descendants, as they may even be reborn into new lives. In a city like New Orleans, time can sit still for some, and yet run through the lives of many, raising questions of love, mortality, and the meaning of it all..
