P.K. played the Superfest festival in central Calif with singer Robyn Kyle Basauri (of Joshua/Red Sea), drummer Glen Mancaruso (of Vengeance/Die Happy) and bassist Jim Laverde (of Barren Cross) in 1994 before heading back into the studio to record more material, at this time he began producing albums and videos for other artists on the label as well, including Bride, Barren Cross, Neon Cross, Red Sea, Nailed, and others.
