and to have a recording studio.I enjoy to engineer,produce,mix pro albums worldwide.
I have finally established what i have dreamed of becoming " A Working Class Musician "
I am deeply in honor of the fan base The Militants have and growing every day.
The cool thing about old school network is is word of mouth from metal head to metal head
and this is magic.All great albums shine and speak to the people.
Charlie Zeigler : Living in L.A. California is a trip indeed.
The things i have seen-WOW!!Glad i pulled thru and survived

music capitals of the world.The struggles were very intense
but it all paid off in the long run and the long haul.
Always move forward and never look back.

LET'S GET TO THE REVIEW:
This was a special review as the music is only available through purchase..
An Old School Album Review was granted a behind the scenes access to three songs currently available only on their website..
We're honored to do this..
What an intense way to start a song!!!
Creepy vocals.. love it!!!
Hits very hard in places..
Would probably kick ass live and have a killer light show..
I'm banging my head.. filled with some smooth solo's..
Ends with flames.
Okay not 10 seconds in and it's an explosion..
Very intense music..
Vocals are just different from what you normally hear..
That riff comes in and hits hard though
Here's a marching anthem..
I like the tone on the bass guitar..
"Evil never dies"
The Militants have 4 albums available.. this may be the best one yet.
