I record under the name of Thomas Velites. Velites were front line Roman soldiers; skirmish fighters known for their guerilla type warfare, quickly attacking and retreating. The lettering on my sword reads logos, Greek for “the word”. The deadly weapon of words shreds the world we live in. We must choose our words and those whom we align carefully.
The song Firestorm reflects the divided condition of America today and the theft of Christianity. Velites pleads to his Christian brothers and sisters; “don’t be fooled by the promises of madmen”. My previous releases were with Poisonous Aluminum Badger, receiving airplay on several college radio stations and NPR.
