"The LIGHTS IN THE SKY era has come to a close, and I'd like to once again thank you for your support. I am very proud of what we pulled off – it was an immense amount of work and worth it all.
"I'd like to thank Josh and Alessandro for being an integral part of this for the last few years and I wish them all the best.
"No rest for the wicked here, though. We start rehearsing the new band/format first thing next year and as I mentioned, we'll be announcing some final waves of dates. North America, UK/Europe, Pacific Rim and elsewhere.
"Oh yeah – we may have a small holiday gift for you soon. Check back."

"A short while ago I was asked by Greek guitarist Ilias Papadakis to add a bass track to this cool new song he wrote. We just posted it on the site now.
It also includes my long time friend Nick Menza on drums and Jeff Waters (Annihilator) shredding it on guitar. I've been a HUGE Annihilator fan over the years and ironically Nick and I used to drive to "Rust In Peace" rehearsals in the early 90's thrashing out to the "Alice In Hell" and "Never, Neverland" albums. I'm glad we all got to play on this song from Ilias as way to celebrate the metal together.

HateTimesNine started out as a recording project by vocalist Travis Neal and guitarist Tracy Swider in San Diego, CA, in late 2005. After a month in the studio and recording a 3 song demo, it was evident that the songs and sound had definite potential. The band has now issued “Shadows”, a twelve song collection of steady metal rockers the way they oughta be played: jammed to the brim with highly impressive dual guitar work coming from Jeff Poremba and Tracy Swider, along with the super charged double-bass drumming of Mikey Pannone, perfect low end rumbling from bassist Shane Monaghan, and passionate, deeply felt vocals from vocalist Travs Neal...
The band issued the following report:
…"Cold night, the shooting started at 1AM and went thru the night.
