Here is a brief synopsis of The Tower of Bashan.

Her goal is in sight. His plan is in place. Those who force their hand will pay.

The journey to the Tower of Bashan has tested Andrasta and Rondel’s partnership, threatened their friendship, and left them with a wealth of scars. After months of research and careful planning, the tower is now before them. They are confident that with the knowledge they have gained, they will defeat the guardians protecting the Jewel of Bashan within.

Their progress is halted when they discover that the entrance is no longer the same. With the tower taunting the pair and their plan useless, they take out their frustration on each other until a quick-witted, young girl gives them an idea on how to succeed. A new plan is formulated, creating political waves and upsetting the criminal underground.

They entered Bashan to steal a jewel, but they may just quicken a civil war.

The Tower of Bashan, is the third standalone novel in The Epic of Andrasta and Rondel.

The fourth (as yet unnamed) standalone novel will be released next year with several more coming over the next couple of years.

I had my doubts about the new Arch Enemy album, but I gotta say they were unfounded. The music is better than it’s been in a while, and Alissa does a great job on vocals. After quite a few listens, I think I prefer her vocals over Angela's.

Good stuff.

War Eternal

No More Regrets


Such a great voice with tons of emotion.

Death Letter Blues

Grinnin in your Face (Who needs an instrument when your voice is this good?)

It’s been a bit quiet here due to some traveling to visit family, a computer dying, immediate family getting crazy sick, and a bunch of other stuff going on. Needless to say, life has been pretty frustrating at times which led me to thinking about the below song.


And it’s pretty much impossible to think about Soul Asylum without thinking of their biggest hit.

Runaway Train

Very underrated band.
