EXCLUSIVE: George Ochoa Discusses Upcoming Worldview Album, New Lead Vocalist

By: Martin Simson, Editor

The Pure Metal Fan had the privilege of visiting with George Ochoa in his southern California studio this past Friday and we learned some exciting things about the new Worldview album.

We had the opportunity to hear two of the new tracks, and the experience left us very excited. If these two songs are any indication, this record may top the first.



“The new Worldview album is going to have the same high-caliber as the first one, if not higher…”, says Ochoa.

The new lead vocalist (announcement coming soon) sounds amazing. Deep lows and soaring highs, filling both tracks with resonating verses and catchy choruses. Distinctively different vocal approach than the first album (featuring Rey Parra), but not entirely unfamiliar.

George continues, “We’ll be releasing a music video in the next month-and-a-half; probably a lyric video.”

Based on just these two songs, this record should easily top The Chosen Few — definitely a power/progressive metal album worthy of getting excited about!



George is projecting a November 2018 release date.

There’s nothing better than the comfort of family coming in town to visit: Oz’s mom Jesse, our sister Angela, my mom, Tara (our daughter) Daughter in law Lorin & granddaughter Vera-Li.

We are requesting prayer for tomorrow & the appointment with Oz’s new neurosurgeon.

Thank you all for your care & concern! God bless you!”


Please keep Oz and his family in your prayers.

Lance King Solo Album Update


On the “positive” metal front, Lance King provides an update on his new solo album. Fans of progressive metal are going to want to purchase this record.

According to Lance’s Facebook page,

“Lots of personal life stuff happening lately, family reunions and weddings, anniversaries, my wife’s birthday…now with ProgPowerUSA coming up I’m focused on that for a few more weeks. My next album Is at 38% funded… and time is ticking fast…get in and grab a package if you haven’t yet! Just checked my stats on Spotify, they say my listeners are 4% women the 96% men… So ladies… what’s up with that ?🤘😜🤘”




Oz Fox Medical Procedure a Success


Annie Lobert says Oz Fox’s medical procedure to alleviate headaches and other symptoms was a sucesss.

Annie goes on to say,

“Update 5: Oz Fox saga continues!

The blood patch was a success—Oz’s headache pain is GONE!

Home. Nothing like it!

You really miss it when you’re gone, and the simple things in life like a cup of tea/coffee, treadmill work out, morning news, devo & a shower you can finally take in private!

Oz is home from the hospital…and he is happy he can finally take a shower, eat something (even though we have to blend it) and take some long needed naps in his own bed.

We are TIRED.

This whole ordeal has not only brought us completely to our knees, but it has also put so many more things in perspective.

Jesus—the center of everything.
Family—more precious than diamonds
Friends—glue that keeps us together
Purpose—career & ministry in life
Home—where the heart is

By wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established; And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches~Proverbs 24:3-4

Please continue to lift Oz up with your prayers—they are working!

More consultations of next steps for Oz’s care to shrink these tumors this week.

Pray we listen, understand & decide with wisdom of what will happen next for his crucial care.

We are so very very thankful for your prayers, support & donations at this time. We cannot keep up with thank yous, phone calls, emails and texts (neither can Oz) so if we’ve missed you—we apologize sincerely.

Love you all!
Annie & Oz

(Oz’s second day in hospital Tuesday with Pastor Doug Lowman & Pastor Derek Neider)


Please contribute if you can, and continue to pray for Oz and Annie and their families.
