Surely by now you're no stranger to Bride vocalist extraordinaire Dale Thompson's multiple studio projects (The World Will Burn, Perpetual Paranoia, N.O.G., Dabster Gentlemen.) Though Dale now lives in New Zealand, we get to hear much more from the renaissance man. One of the most popular of his bands has been Dale's collaboration with Hand of Fire guitarist Tiago Souza in Perpetual Paranoia. Thompson's seemingly endless ability to explore the range and scope of his vocal abi
What started off as an unlikely pairing has turned into a partnership that has overcome the kind of challenges that many bands don't survive. What do you do when one half of your band lives in the United States and the other half lives in New Zealand? You learn how to make it work.

The music was hi
The gift of creativity is an amazing thing, and the chemistry that sparks between creative people is also amazing. Sequestering yourself in a basement or a studio and waiting to see what happens when ideas are brought together is an exciting process. When an album like Nothing’s As Real As It Seems comes along, it’s hard to believe that this process never took place. The World Will Burn is a collaboration between Dale Thompson, best known as the lead vocalist of Bride, and

Emerald, along with the band Apostle, has the distinction of being one of the most talented Christian metal bands of the golden era that remained unsigned throughout their musical tenure of the late 70's through the late 80's. The band centered around guitarist Dave Enos, with many members coming and going, the most famous lineup being the one to produce the 6 song ep Armed for Battle in 1987 with Enos, his brother in law Larry Philips on vocals, Roger Dale Martin on bass (wh
