My first Eyes of Fire Demonstration was first released in 1997 in cassette format only.  I have since then digitized it directly from the original DAT tape it was stored on for this re-release, compliments of my good friend Mary of Ottomans Empire.

In my senior year of high school I was very interested in the King James Bible.  At the same time I was trying to come up with a cool name for a band.  I was in a natural process of song writing and felt I needed a band name sooner or later to represent my music with.   One night while reading my bible I came across a scripture in the Book of Revelations 1:14, “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire” So I thought up “Eyes of Fire” that night in my bedroom around late 1995/early 1996.
The making of the first Eyes of Fire Demonstration:

I wrote and recorded this Demonstration as I was first learning Lead Guitars.  Song writing came natural to me.  I didn’t set out to write songs.  They just naturally happened when I was practicing.  It’s a natural need to create that I have within myself.  That’s the best I can explain it.  Before long I had enough songs to create a demo.  I could not find other musicians to form a band with and record there parts in a studio.   In fact I started to record the guitar tracks in a studio but I could never produce other musicians to play drums, bass and sing vocals.   So out of frustration I cut my losses and pulled out.  I bought my own drum machine to program all of the drums, bass guitars and other orchestral instrumentations and a cheap recorder to record them on during the year of 1996.  Before long I was able to give birth to the first Eyes of Fire Demo after laboring approximately two years.  Man it felt good to finally have that baby!

May ALL of your Musical Orgasms be Multiple,
