tigersofwrath I've been enjoying Anup's play-through videos online almost daily for about a month now, and I am happy to support him with this purchase. Extreme power balanced (but never limited) by control and attention to detail. I'm not sure which I enjoy more: the relentless assault he unleashes or the composure and focus he maintains as he does so. Watching him lock into his work is a sublime experience, and his kit sounds phenomenal. Do not deny yourself!

fbwot Anup did it again ! Shit's melting my face daily. Album has the heaviness of a thousand suns. Favorite track: Illuminate (feat. Mike Semesky).

GazpachoX Beautiful album over all, this is what we call progressive rock. I'm drawn to the story of us, beautiful lyrics and finely executed music. Favorite track: Story Of Us (feat. Andy Cizek).

"Illuminate" is my fifth solo release. Its taken me about two years to put everything together, but I'm excited with how it all turned out. I had the privilege of working with some very talented vocalists and musicians on these songs, and I can't thank them enough for their contributions.
