Randy related, “It stayed with me for weeks until I finally decided it was supposed to be on the album”. Ruby Starr’s nephew, Johnny Cappelletty, was enlisted to record the drums and the song was off and running. Also appearing on the song are Black Label Society's bassist John 'JD' DeServio, and D'haitre custom guitar maker Andy Beech. Of Ruby, Randy states, “Her vision of seeing Johnny and I in a band together set my entire career path. Without her, the last three and a half decades look radically different. I doubt I would even be alive with the course I was on. I did my best to honor her memory and I have nothing but eternal love for her and her family.” Randy V – lead vocal Sean Francis – lead guitar John ‘JD’ DeServio – bass guitar & background vocal Johnny Cappelletty – drums Andy Beech - rhythm guitar (audio only) Lyrics by Ruby Starr Music by Marius Penczner Ruby’s a cappella vocal courtesy of Butch Stone, © 1975 Capital Records, Inc.

The entire band (including Randy) agreed. The following morning Randy wrote the title track 'Monster', which he describes as a life-long battle with codependency, born out of growing up in an appalling alcoholic environment. Regarding the lyrics, Randy states, "Sometimes the issue is not the addiction you were subjected to, but rather the unconscious need to be validated through hedonism and debauchery. It's a losing battle trying to fill an endless void right through the center of your being. That's what the monster is, blind, never-ending hunger, either trying to feel alive and known, or completely annihilated. There is no in between. The battle is fought with vigilance, everyday. It creeps up on you when you're not watching and destroys the people who actually love you. It's a beast to be reckoned with." The witches fly and always cry when I fail them To hit a wall and fall was never my intention All tied up in knots, waitin' for the fury But the beast inside is tellin' me not to worry You are the earthy woman I’ve been waiting for Locked in my prison cell, I gotta have some more Thought I was good to go when I left the horror But I’m not allowed to love; here comes the monster Wide awake in the void of validation The hero-self exposes my destruction Guilt ridden, love killer, biting as you weep All my thoughts are lost in you so deep You are the earthy woman I’ve been waiting for Locked in my prison cell, I gotta have some more Thought I was good to go when I left the horror But I’m not allowed to love; here comes the monster The witches fly and always cry when I fail them Licensed to YouTube by: White Choker Publishing (ASCAP/SOCAN).

I was driving across the State of Washington in the Spring of 2017, and decided to call my dear friend in Florida to firm up my plans for the summer. We hadn’t seen each other in over 30 years. She was my middle school love – my first love. It didn’t pan for us and was probably just as well. We were both incredibly willful and stubborn, and in our youth, we were totally out of control, just wild. Any serious relationship between the two of us back then would have been a disaster. In retrospect, growing up in Burlington, Iowa, in the appalling conditions of my home, her asking me to stay would have given me two years at best. Death was coming, and I didn’t want to be around when it came knocking. We had our moment a few years later, and it was grand, but we were on separate paths, and we both knew it wasn’t meant to be. Throughout the years, we stayed close friends but never had the opportunity to see each other again. She got married and had kids. I was married and divorced twice with a beautiful daughter. We stayed in touch. In December of 2016, I made plans for an epic 5,000 journey on my Indian. When I travel like this, I usually hit the town we grew up in. My parents are buried there, and I have a couple of dear friends there. Her parents still lived in Burlington, and we discovered that we would be in our old hometown at the same time. I was excited to see her after all these years. We made plans to have lunch – two old friends getting together over lunch and reminiscing about our wild pasts. So, back to my drive. I had pulled off at a rest area on my way to Spokane. I will never forget this. I picked up my phone, brought up her number to call, and realized she was no longer here. She passed away back in February at her Florida home. I was just sitting there frozen, holding my phone. I had already grieved, yet I was still making the big trip, right in the middle of writing sessions with Sean for the debut album, and had forgotten entirely. A close friend told me that she was returned to Burlington and buried in a cemetery very close to where she grew up, very close to the school where we met. The first line of the song was born at that moment. By the time I got to Spokane, the lyrics were done. Sean did a fantastic job finding the right music, and I even had a hand in the chorus melody. All of it came straight from the heart. I did go to her grave at the appointed time of our lunch. It was a bright, beautiful summer day. I had two white roses – one stayed there, and the other traveled with me.

The Haunted North - Rise (Promo Reel)

FOR FULL TRACK: https://open.spotify.com/track/4DCSbCDoUUHzejSPJXKbDw?si=PCAI2EyzSkONwWAj-9wPjA What is the song About By Randy V. “Rise” is quite relevant right now. They are lyrics I wrote many years ago under a different title. It is what’s happening in the world right now. You have a bunch of technocrats and oligarchs who think they know what’s best for everyone, and that no one outside of their elite circle is capable of thinking for themselves. The bourgeois and poor do have thinking people that are getting increasingly pissed over the arrogance of the ruling class. Rise is that moment in time, much like the French Revolution, where the people become aware of the hypocrisy, and madness takes over in the form of reckoning. This reckoning is much like the mythical lycanthrope, killing whatever crosses its path, but always knowing the enemy, that which is devoid of spirit. Rise is the primal anger, the moment when you understand the con, and the moment you see them for what they are, the ultimate hypocrites, true evil. Rise is the moment in time when the suppression becomes so unbearable that an animal bloodlust is inevitable. The two symbols I associate with this song are the guillotine and the werewolf. It is the elite and the old clergy that have stolen from everyone, killed untold millions, sanctioned genocide, and continue raping the planet over and over to this very day. These same soulless beings see the rest of humanity as mindless batteries for culling. Worst of all, they parade themselves as the ones with the solution to the problems they created. Once this perception is fully understood and realized, a natural state of severe anger comes from deep within the human psyche. That is where “Rise” comes from.

The Haunted North - Mojave Moon (Promo Reel)

FOR FULL TRACK https://open.spotify.com/track/0Zu7xYMkkSeAM2mqOANoVd?si=S-P4SBgoTGap6iQCKXpS9A What is the song About By Randy V. In the middle of July 2016, I rode my Indian Chief Classic through the Mojave Desert from Barstow, California, to Kingman, Arizona, starting at 1 in the afternoon, the middle of the day in the middle of summer. My motorcycle thermometer maxed out at 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and it was reported the surface temperature of the road was over 140. I had blisters on my fingers which were facing the road, not the sun. During the ride, the sun was beating down on me, and the full moon was visible in front of me. The more brutal the heat became, the more I just wanted to stop and sleep. That was a bad idea, death for certain, and I knew it. I started singing to myself. I was in a true present – a place where all of us should be but rarely get to. A couple of people asked me about the opening line, “White lines run through me.” One friend asked, “Dude, are you doing blow?” Not a chance, and I have zero desire for it. The opening line is a reference to the white lines of the road. As the heat intensified, everything started blending - the sun’s reflection off my gas tank, the moon in front of me, and the endless charred dessert. The white lines of the road passed through my body as I started a deep introspection of where I was at in the world. At that point in my life, I was in purgatory, and I began addressing the core of my beliefs. The heat had me spinning deep into myself. A friend had died on that very stretch of highway, and I thought death could happen anywhere at any time. The way I was feeling at that moment (onset of heat exhaustion), I felt now was as good a time as any. That little thought had an aftershock akin to being slapped in the face. Inside the sleepiness, hallucinations, and burning from the blast furnace I was in, it occurred to me that I wanted to feel things again. I looked to the silvery moon, shimmering in the desert heat, and summoned an angel – in my world, a Valkyrie. Then I arrived at my destination. A few days later, I headed north from Las Vegas in the same brutal Mojave heat, but this time I was not alone. There was a Valkyrie watching over me throughout the entire day. I could feel her all around me. Though the ride was almost as brutal, this time, it was enjoyable. The second verse of the song came later that night, sitting in a graveyard across the street from the hotel I was staying at. Relishing the cool night air, I never wanted that presence to leave me. The song is a poem – a slice of time under both the sun and moon of the Mojave Desert – a point of being honest with one’s self. https://open.spotify.com/track/0Zu7xYMkkSeAM2mqOANoVd?si=S-P4SBgoTGap6iQCKXpS9A _____ Credits: Album cover by Rob Prior Promo Video Created By Armi Jarvis for White Choker Publishing, LLC.
