Pretty Cool stuff   ***** stars

This is way outside the box, and came out amazing. Plus, it’s live! Any Tourniquet, or EAP fan should pick this up.

Perfection   ***** stars

Do fans of Ted expect anything less. This is the most terrifying and amazing piece of art because that is what it is art pure amazing work.

Masterful!   ***** stars

One of the coolest things I have ever heard. I know this has been done before, but this exceeds them all. Les Carlsen’s take on the Tell Tale Heart is masterful!

I have been a great admirer of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) for many years and immensely enjoy his brilliant works. I find myself reading and listening to them over and over – just like great music. With this release, I hope you will too. This project is a journey into some of his greatest works, spoken by some of the coolest vocalists out there, who did a fantastic job bringing these classic tales to life. Though these works fall generally into the “horror” category, they are filled with Poe’s incredible use of the English language, vivid descriptions, seldom-used words, and bizarre phrasing – all the stuff that puts him into the elite group of the great writers in history. They also, maybe inadvertently, contain a lesson or two – that our selfish and evil actions are not done without consequence. The season is upon us – so get ready to sit back, close your eyes, and delve into Edgar Allan Poe: Spoken Tales of a Tortured Genius… Ted Kirkpatrick

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
