I love this sound man! It makes me happy that you and most of your Sevendust brothers are branching out to explore/define their own vision or sound/idea. You guys are a true musical inspiration to many people. Sevendust is by far my favorite band and the fact that you all are so passionate about music to do your own things, is absolutely amazing... On a side-note... Keep Sevendust alive as long as you guys are capable... The music is truly unique and amazing! Take care and I wish you nothing but the best in your solo endeavors.
