After nepriryvnyh searches performers in Atlanta Ron sent to Tampa (Florida) , where is the drummer Tony Laureano. Together with him in May 1996, he recorded the first MCD "Mansions Of Eternity". All vocal, guitar and bass parts were played by Ron`a, since he had already disappointed to find suitable musicians.CD was recorded at Morrisound studios and combined Scott`om Burns`om, and after already received a good review in the world.
Then Ron moved to Maryland and began working on material for the next CD. At this time, Tony Laureno was busy with other projects, so his place was taken by Derek Roddy.
