WHERE ARE YOUR LYRICS AVAILABLE TO READ?
All lyrics for each Album are available to read on the Desktop version of this website (on their respective pages), as well as on nonviable.bandcamp.com
ARE YOU INDEPENDENT / UNSIGNED?
Yes, I'm independent. I am NOT affiliated, signed or partnered with ANY record label, music company, or promotional entity.
WHAT IS YOUR POLITICAL IDEOLOGY?
I STAND AGAINST demagogues who abuse their power, traitors who attempt to subvert our elections, and the treasonous domestic terrorists who attacked our Capitol on Jan. 6th, 2021. DONALD TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS ARE TRAITORS TO THE UNITED STATES.
WILL YOU EVER PERFORM LIVE OR TOUR?
No. Nonviable has always been, and will always be an Online Project. I will NEVER do any shows, touring, or live performances.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
The vast majority of my inspiration comes from real-world issues and events.
 
I also pull a large amount of creative influence from the trailers, teasers and story elements of Tactical FPS and Horror games, such as Rainbow 6: Patriots, Ready Or Not, The Evil Within 2, Outlast, Hatred, and Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour.
 
My musical influences are: RØT, WHXRECRUSHER, HATER, CASTIEL, DEMOLISHER, FEIGN, PURGE, xKINGx, xCELESTIALx, PRY, SIX, Black Tongue, Improvidence, Beyond The Aftermath, Boy Eats Girl, Science Of Sleep, Primitive Man, I Declare War, Immoralist, Bodysnatcher and Eminem.
HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU SPEND ON THIS?
I spent a combined total of over $6,000 on my 3rd & 4th Full-Length Albums, 'Liberation' & 'Warmonger'.
 
This figure encompasses all aspects of Development for both Albums: Artwork Creation Costs, Instrumental Writing Payments, Studio Booking Fees, Transportation Costs, and Mixing & Mastering Payments.

I'm estimating that 'Quarantine' and 'Armageddon', my upcoming 5th and 6th Full-Length Albums, will cost me roughly around $15,000.
ARE THERE ANY GUEST FEATURES?
No, there are no guest features on 'Liberation', 'Warmonger', 'Quarantine' or 'Armageddon'.

At birth, my right leg had gangrene in it. In order to prevent it from spreading to the rest of my body, my leg was amputated above the knee. I use a prosthesis to get around.
