Your order supports Jason Becker
For every RISE album sold (CD /digital), I will donate 1 USD to Jason Becker. Jason is suffering from ALS since 1990 and needs continuous financial support to pay for his medical bills. Jason has been a huge inspiration to me since I first heard the Perpetual Burn album in 1987. Find out more about Jason Becker on the Jason Becker Charity page

8 Editors of the leading Dutch Metal Magazine 'Aardschok' have rated RISE with an average 78/100 score, leading to a shared #3 place in the "Soundcheck" chart of new albums in the month of March.
