"The Ghost of Gill T. Freeman"
Omega is the final album of the three concept albums that make up "The Good Fight Trilogy". Released September 09, 2014, Omega "The Ghost of Gill T. Freeman"; weaves Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, and Progressive elements, combined with vividly telling lyrics; and finds our character, Gill T. Freeman, in a far more reflective place then in the prior two albums. The first album, "The Good Fight", ended with the revelation that Gill must change his ways in order to be able to tackle his demons and take onus over his life. The second album, METAMORPHOSIS, ends with the decision that he longs for the true essence of living, and the only way for him to be able to achieve his metamorphosis is with the metaphoric death of himself, and that "the end" is really just a new beginning. With Omega, it is clear that our character was not only successful in his quest for rebirth, but has EMERGED stronger and wiser then even he could have imagined. Omega delivers powerful messages of self awareness, somber regret, and a calming reassured sense of pride in his accomplishment of finding inner peace. More then anything, the songs that make up the album are meant to be a cautionary tale for others not to let their struggles and mistakes destroy their lives, but to use them as the stepping stones to spiritual discovery and growth.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
"The Story of Gill T. Freeman"
The Good Fight is the debut album by Ploy of Oracle, and the first of the three concept albums that make up "The Good Fight Trilogy". Released May 29th, 2009, The Good Fight "The Story of Gill T. Freeman", introduces the character of Gill T. Freeman. Much like his auto-antonym name, Gill T. Freeman is the antagonist and protagonist of "The Good Fight Trilogy". The album weaves the musical styles of Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, and Progressive elements; combined with vividly telling lyrics; to paint a picture of a man who is clearly embroiled in the battle of self. The music and lyrics bring the listener inside the head of one who is walking the fine line between good and evil, but also starting to EMBRACE the reality that all his struggles, issues, and misfortunes, were his own doing and that he is his own worst enemy. He begins to long for change, and begins to convince himself to rise above his own delusions and be hopeful that he can win the fight against himself and change his ways. Convincing himself, it's not too late..

"The Death of Gill T. Freeman"
METAMORPHOSIS is the follow-up album to "The Good Fight", and is the second of the three concept albums that make up "The Good Fight Trilogy". Released January 31st, 2011, METAMORPHOSIS "The Death of Gill T. Freeman"; yet again weaves Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, and Progressive elements, combined with vividly telling lyrics; and finds our character, Gill T. Freeman, in somewhat familiar territory. As "The Good Fight" ends with the revelation that Gill must change his ways in order to be able to tackle his demons and take onus over his life; he soon will discover yet another hurdle. Determined to become a new man, one with much to offer the world, he begins to have big dreams. Right out of the gate it is obvious to everyone but him, that not only does he have delusions of grandeur, but by failing to be patient with the process of self-growth he has unintentionally redirected his pain outwardly and it is coming out now in blatant arrogance. He seeks out a familiar vice, to help feed his new ego, in an attempt to fill the void he feels in his heart, which brings out mixed emotions and brings up, yet even more, demons from his past. Finally, after having enough of creating new problems before he has even fixed the old problems that still plague him, he decides there is only one thing left to do. ENGAGE his original plan to finally change and win the fight against himself, but with a new purpose. He begins to understand that he should not seek a life to benefit purely his own selfish wants and needs, but to strive to become a man that lives a life that will benefit others more then it benefits his own. He decides that is the true essence of living, and that the only way for him to be able to achieve this metamorphosis is with the metaphoric death of himself, and that "the end" is really a new beginning.
