The title is the English translation for Yihe tuan. This was a group of Chinese that fought against the English in the 1890s. The believed that they had magic powers and could not be killed by bullets. Unfortunately for them, it did not work out so well. This music is somewhat technical, extremely heavy yet musical. Guitars tuned down to B and a few keyboard parts added mostly for sound effects. The lyrics where originally inspired by a friend of mine who was a diagnosed with a stage 4 lung cancer and given only a few months to live. He vowed to fight it to the end even though the odds where against him. He lived on for a year and a half beating the odds although he did not beat the cancer. I rededicate it to people all over the world who are fighting an impossible battle even though they know the odds are against them.
This song is inspired by the events in NYC on 9/11/2001 and is dedicated to all the brave heroes from around the world how have hunted down the murders.
This was one of my favorite Hermaphro songs. It was by far the simplest song in our set but people would kill each other and go crazy when we played it. The first solo is by me (Sharkboy) the second solo with the incredible feedback is Tony B. The screaming at the end is way Tony's mom would scream at us and sprinkle us with holy water:)
This is my tribute to the most over prescribed group of chemicals in the world. 85% of the benefit was the same as with a sugar pill in clinical trials for most of the drugs in this category. This translates into the fact that this drug will have no benefit for most people who they are prescribed to. Since they have no real test to see if you actually have a chemical imbalance they can't tell you for certain if the drug can help you.
Cover version of Lee Dewyze's "Blackbird Song" used in The Walking Dead.
This is a cover of the Bill Withers masterpiece "Use Me". We added our own spin on the tune and made it a bit more rock. I hope you all like it.
This is a song I wrote for Maria. I wrote the first version of this song when my wife was pregnant with Maria and the doctors did not know if she would make it. They told us that if she did live she would have life long disabilities and illness. This was my prayer to God and gift to my little girl. Lord let me find strength in her beauty. Let me find hope in her heart. Let me be the bones to help her stand. Let me be the eyes to help her see.
This is a song about reaching middle age looking back with fondness on your past crazy days and looking forward into uncertainty. In a way it is a sad song but in others it takes you on a journey and in the end is hopeful.
This is am old song brought back from the archives with the help of HunnyG.
Dr. Thanatos, a scientist of the highest caliber is hied by the US government to create a new race of super humans that can survive a nuclear war. In a secret deal with the government of North Korea he sets up his base inside a camp for political prisoners who he uses in his experiments. After years of isolation the doctor goes mad and plans on taking over the world and ruling his race of self-replicating human worm hybrids.
This was from the Band Hermaphro. It was written with Tony now of Swampa-zz. It pretty fucking crazy. We where all out of our minds. The band was based on this idea Tony and I came up with after drinking one to many cups of coffee about Hermaphrodites taking over the earth after a nuclear holicost. we had this whole idea about people self replicating like earth worms in massive discusing orgies. The things that enter your head after drinking maxwell house...
Autumn Leaves Bossa Nova jam session
Bossa Nova Jam on standard song structure.
Tender Sharkboy Moments
Song dedicated to my daughter Katrina. Was first written before she was born. This is a just for fun recording.
This is a song dedicated to my wife. It is about how relationships help us to evolve and grow as humans and how love true love stands the test of time.
This song is dedicated to my little girl Maria. I first wrote this shortly after she was born and heard she might never see or walk. It is a heart-felt prayer that I prayed in my head a thousand ways. God graciously fulfills my request everyday, every time Maria smiles.
live once again
Medium tempo Heavy rock (125 bpm). You Tube Video: http://youtu.be/BC3933KMlJM
S & E
This was a song recorded by Eric M from All she wrote and Shawn. I added the guitar parts.
Sharkboy Got the Funk
This is based on the Thelonious Monk song Blue Monk but with rock instrumentation. This is a just for fun blues tune that I hope you will dig.
Off the top of my head
This is a one take wonder. I used to record these modal chord vamps to practice over when I first started studying jazz. I would record them and make Tony from Swampa-zz listen to them. He would tell me I was an ass but he loved me anyway.
Purgetory in Dans Basement
This is another fun jam from Dan's basement. It starts out with me playing random non-sense (as fast I can), then the Dans jumping in for an all out shred fest. It then jumps into a hyper-active white boy funk jam, then back to the metal. This is a great song if you are into spazin out on crack.
Purgatory in Dans Basement
Yet another jem from the basement of Dan. This song was recorded with a cheap tape recorder placed in the middle of the room. I got the tape player at a White Snake concert. Some guy was trying to sneak it in but chucked it when he saw they where frisking people. I grabbed it and stuck it in my trench coat. They didn't frisk me because I looked so damn innocent. This song is me and Dan's attempt to use every time signature possible. This was was allot of fun.
This is my song
I First picked up the guitar when I was 14 years old. As a teen in the late 80s I was an extreme metal head. I lived for Iron Maiden, Metallica, AC/DC, and Judas Priest.
As my guitar playing progressed I dove head first into the NeoClassical guitar movement lead by Yngwie J Malmsteen, and Paul Gilbert and the rest of the Shrapnel Records crew. I spent most of my high school years locked in a room with a metronome practicing my ass off.
I started college as a music major studying classical guitar. I soon diversified my guitar repertoire by studying Jazz, funk, and eastern music. I was heavily influenced by John Mclaughlin and his Shakti and Mahivishnu Orchestra.
I combined the shred, classical, and progressive jazz influences to create my first band, Purgatory. Purgatory never quite made it out of the basement but created a foundation for my next band [Hermafro?].
Hermafro added Tony (of Swampazz) on Guitar and Vocals, and Eric Mafea on Bass to the Purgatory line up of my self and Danny Almoduvar. Hermafro took the Progressive Jazz / Metal sound to the next level adding electronic textures to bludgeoning heavy guitar riffs and grit filled vocals.
These days I work a regular day job, have a hair cut and act like a yuppie most of the time but I still play guitar and write music. I will be posting my latest and greatest here on MyOnlineBand.com from time to time. I hope some one will like it.
The nick-name Sharkboy comes from my ass hole fiends making fun of the stupid faces I would make when I play guitar. They called the face the shark face. From the shark face came sharkboy.

In our story the demented Dr. Thanatos worked in a secret US government laboratory located in North Korea. The US had worked out a deal with the North Korean government that would allow heir doctor to do his work in secret with the help of a camp load of political prisoners in exchange for US aid. After decades of work the doctor successfully creates a new human sub species capable of self replication.
After this program is cut do to US government budget changes, the doctor is ordered to terminate his creation. The doctor refuses and instead hides underground and executes his evil plan that slides the world into a chaos that results into nuclear , chemical, and germ warfare followed by famine and disease that eventually wipes out the human race.
