Download a free mp3 of his song Vampyres here for a limited time here. Lazarus X's determined honest rock combined with haunting and soulful melodies struck a chord with many rock music fans. Some fans received a preview of the publicity photos and album at a rooftop listening party a day before it is released and the response was amazing. Lazarus X has a long and interesting history in the local Houston scene. His interview was well received by fans and is available here. Part 1 - Part 2 - The lyrics are very moving, at times dark and at others very inspiring and insightful.
