Valen of Wicked

There is one possible thing that could be more important than his business ventures. That is his newfound music producing career. He creates and produces his very own brand of techno music. He uses the name Valen of Wicked for this. He said that the name means everything that you want it to mean. He uses the word Wicked to represent a lot of ideas. He said that it does not always mean evil. Wicked represents everything. Both the good and hard parts of his life. It also relates to the style of techno music he creates and gives to the world. The word Valen means valiance and honor. Those two words together represent two very different aspects of his life. But different as they may be, they are always present in his life. There is an honor one should show to be a decent person. And there is an innate wickedness that is inherent in us. He chooses to face this wickedness. He then channels those experiences into the music he creates.
