After deciding to make Dead Earth Politics legacy, Ven began a new project with Dead Earth Politics guitarist, Tim Driscoll. In many ways extending upon the foundation Tim laid when he joined Dead Earth Politics in 2011, the new project, Runecarred, targets more progressive and power exploits. Their first release is set to launch in 2018.
2005 to 2017
From 2005 until 2017, Ven was the lead man behind Austin’s award wining metal band, Dead Earth Politics. He received accolades from reviewers and concert goers like regarding his vocal range, lyric writing and live performances. In 2017, after the departure of the last remaining original member besides himself, it was decided to lay Dead Earth Politics to rest.
