The Dawn of Paragon is a 9 track heavy metal synthwave symphony. This is the 6th Jon of the Shred album. The album tells the origin story of Dr Zaine Grimm. Grimm is a young man who discovers a potentially catastrophic planetary alignment within the Scythian Solar System. His research is interrupted after the tragic loss of his infant daughter. Will Dr Grimm unearth the full truth behind the Ecliptic Prophecy?
From Heavy Metal, to Synthwave, to Spaghetti Western, to swing, blues, jazz, and funk, this album covers a ton of ground musically. Fans of bands and composers as diverse as Meat Loaf, Savatage, X-Japan, Ennio Morricone, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, John Carpenter, and tons more will appreciate the diverse musical soundscapes.
It has been a full cycle since the Apocalyptic Dawn, and the undead now roam the planet Scythe unchallenged. Society has fallen to the zombies, and more survivors are lost every day. A man who lost his family to the carnage has been driven mad. In his psychosis he has formed a cult that worships the Impaled. These undead worshiping lunatics call themselves the ORDER OF THE IMPALED.
Purge the Wicked. Cleanse the Soul. For it is…the Will of the Gods.

The Walking Dead is a phenomena. I had high hopes when a pilot was ordered. As a long time reader of the comics, I figured "Kirkman's got this." And also, "So it's not HBO. But AMC launched Breaking Bad. They might be able to bring the Walking Dead to TV." And Frank...read more
