about

A tribute to Shakespeare's "Hamlet."

lyrics

How all occasions do inform against me,
And spur my dull revenge! What is a man
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more.
Sure, he that made us with such large discourse,
Looking before and after, gave us not
That capability and godlike reason
To fust in us unused. Now, whether it be
Bestial oblivion, or some craven scruple
Of thinking too precisely on th' event—
A thought which, quartered, hath but one part wisdom
And ever three parts coward—I do not know
Why yet I live to say “This thing’s to do,”
Sith I have cause and will and strength and means
To do ’t. Examples gross as earth exhort me.
Witness this army of such mass and charge
Led by a delicate and tender prince,
Whose spirit with divine ambition puffed
Makes mouths at the invisible event,
Exposing what is mortal and unsure
To all that fortune, death, and danger dare,
Even for an eggshell. Rightly to be great
Is not to stir without great argument

Steel Maverick Nashville, Tennessee

In 2004, Eddie Darksbane was working in the steel mills of Pittsburgh by day and toiling in the studio by night.

His goal?

Meld the power of bands like Metallica with a bit of the sensitivity of bands like Nickelback.

When he met like-minded rockers Brandon, Phil, and Lars, he did more. He forged a band that rocks harder than any alloy from the steel mill.

He forged Steel Maverick.
