This Is Me (4:29) The songs were produced/engineered and mixed by Neil Kernon (NILE, NEVERMORE, QUEENSRŸCHE, REDEMPTION), who also contributed the main guitar solo on the song "Seemless", and mastered by Alan Douches, both of whom worked on the "IV v1.0" release as well. A video teaser for "IV v2.0" can be viewed below. The DR concept was developed by Mortal Music as taking a snap shot of an album of music and releasing it into the market a "chapter" at a time, so to speak, to allow it to work its way into the marketplace faster and to help alleviate the musical overload fans and press alike are experiencing these days with so many options available. The full-length album will then be available on CD at the end of the cycle for those that still collect physical product. "IV v1.0" DR is now available via iTunes and Bandcamp as well.
