The Unchosen Story of Cowboy II


The final track on Scratch the Surface is called Cowboy II

The song was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, en-route to the Jack Daniels Distillery…. How awesome is that ?!

The first Cowboy tune was recorded in 2000 and featured on our Once The Thunder Comes EP. This EP was ahead of its time and when placed in your PC  displayed our live Cowboy video recorded at Bananas in Surrey. That video is available below for your pleasure.

Mjolnir – An Unchosen Tribute to Halo


Having been dedicated fans of the first two games in the Halo trilogy, we wanted to salute ‘Halo’ in the way we best knew, – through our music…

His only ally through this is the glowing image of the A.I. ‘Cortana’ – his guardian angel, his shield, his sword… We aimed to create music to capture the adrenaline and the thrill inspired by the game in roaring guitar riffs and thundering rhythms, as a backdrop to the story of the creation of Spartan 117, his angel, and his mission. The result we proudly present is powerful, heavy and motivating, much like the game so we name it… MJOLNIR
