New Studio Recordings and Setup
I have been working with two great and longtime friends Mike Briggs on bass and Forrest Robinson on drums. Mike and I have been alternating between his studio in NC and mine in Atlanta. I have primarily been using previously recorded tracks from Forrest from an album we started for our old band OVid.
I am working on two different albums; one acoustic and one electric. It is funny to me to think that Forrest and I play metal but really have never put out a truly heavy or metal record. This is in no way intended to slight the punk rock, industrial or hardcore bands I played in such as OVid or Blackheadz or Forrest's work with Delta Deep, etc. Although the electric record is very eclectic, there are some very heavy moments that I feel truly reflect my true nature as a guitarist. The acoustic record is more of a reflection of all the solo acoustic gigs I have done to promote my own recordings as well as my interests in Afro-Cuban, Latin and Flamenco.
A majority of the music has been completed and I am planning to add vocals and leads over the next few months.
