He also talks a bit about how viewing wealth as stemming from the mind rather than from the wallet helped him develop a mindset which helps him achieve his goals now that he's released.

elitefitrea is an independent post-industrial band, formed in Denver, Colorado. Its creative driver is Bryan Day, a former marine and a former prison inmate.

Described as powerful, haunting, measured, patient, layered, visceral, and experiential, elitefitrea's music is a revival-come-reinvention of a powerful mix of genres, including electronic, grunge, and post-industrial.

Day was notably incarcerated for an arson he committed during a psychotic episode in 2008, after a 14-year losing battle to suicidal depression. He was sentenced to 10 years incarceration and 5 years of parole in 2009. During his incarceration, Bryan was able to use exercise and meditation to mitigate the effects of his depression, until around 2012, when Day cured it, after reading a Medical Doctor's investigation into the link between some cases of depression and gluten sensitivity.

After his release to parole in 2016, Day re-formed elitefitrea and has been writing and recording since.
