Lots of news to share with you this quarter! We have 3 MAJOR projects in process at the moment.
1- My Biography/Life's Story is almost print ready. Looking at the 'possibility' of self publishing??! The book reads really well & I pull no punches along the way. This is ME & MY LIFE - WARTS & ALL! HaHa. Besides the 64,000 words, the book will contain between 100 and 200 photos & Media Clippings. I can now reveal that the book will be called METAL MISSIONARY- The Steve Rowe Story. My life's story has been written by my Australian Manager Vic Campbell. Vic is also the author of Rosanna Palmer's Biography- 'Rock 'N' Roll Believer. Rossana is, of course, the legendary Vocalist & Guitarist for Aussie Christian Rockers Rosanna's Raiders! Rosanna's Biography is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase from my STORE at www.roweproductions.com
2- The new FULL LENGTH Mortification Album is now complete in Pre Production! I can now reveal that the new Mortification Album will be called- REALM OF THE SKELATOR. It is a BRUAL MIX of Death Metal, Grind, Thrash and Traditional Heavy Metal styles. As usual it sounds like nothing we have ever done before!!! HOWEVER, it has strong leanings towards Break The Curse 1990, The Mortification Self Titled Album, Scrolls Of The Megilloth and EnVision EvAngelene! The body of the Album will be Recorded in September and October with Producer/ Engineer extraordinaire- Mark McCormack!
3- The new FULL LEGTH Wonrowe Vision Album will be complete in Pre Production by the end of this month! I can also reveal that the new Wonrowe Vision Album will be called- 2 HEADED MONSTER. After learning SO MUCH about writing Classic Rock these past 5 years with the first two Wonrowe Vision Albums, I think that we now have 'THE SOUND' NAILED! On Mission Invincible I was aiming to sing like Lemmy from Motored. On the 2nd Album I simply tried to 'sing'. Being that Wonrowe Vision has strong Punk & Rock N Roll influences, on 2 Headed Monster I will be taking a more aggressive Puck Rock Vocal approach!! You can hear this type of singing in 'Short Circuit' on Erasing The Goblin & 'Resurrection Band- A Tribute To Rez' on The Evil Addiction Destroying Machine Mortification Albums. I think that this style of Vocal is a strength of mine! It makes the Rock WAY MORE AGGRESSIVE & keeps me in a place Vocally where I am most comfortable and competent! The body of the Album will be Recorded latter this year with Neil Kearin as Engineer and Production will be handled by myself along with Neil!
So as you can read, we are taking HUGE LEAPS OF FAITH! These 3 projects are going to cost A FORTUNE! ....and so- How can you guys help? 1- Please pray for us that we have God's Wisdom in each project! 2- PLEASE COME AND PURCHASE SOMETHING THAT YOU DO NOT ALREADY OWN FROM THE STORE AT www.roweproductions.com
