Vin Diamo and the End of the World
When the world split apart at the seams in 2012, Vin Diamo was separated from the love of his life. For 6 years, he toured the sunburnt and war-savaged continent of North America searching for her, playing music he wrote reflecting the state of his country, the corruption of his government, and the deterioration of his heart. This is a collection of his earliest songs from that time period.

The Death of Vin Diamo(2009)
Vin Diamo died today. His age was not known. As some of you may know, Vin Diamo believed he was from a post-apocalyptic future, specifically the year 2016. Whether he was deluded, confused, or just playing an elaborate joke will never be known. What is know is that, in his short time on this earth, in this moment in time, he left us with one final album of beautiful melodies and soul searching lyrics to remember him by. The Death of Vin Diamo is 12 tracks, 40 minutes, of pop music composed of and for a future not ready for it's own time. These wide ranging songs address war, love, art, family, loss, loneliness and hope. Not held down by the confining nature of genre or style, these songs share little in common with one another, other than a pursuit of melody and a relentless poetry. Vin Diamo's death comes as a blow to many of us who knew and loved him. Though he was always aloof, many of us came to think of him as a friend. His tortured mind and unwavering belief in what he thought to be true may have been his downfall, but we would prefer to remember him as a funny, eccentric figure, uneffected by the constraints of society's norms. We hope you enjoy these final compositions of this complex and enigmatic figure. He will be missed.
