Neo-Classical News Round Up
My apologies for the lack of updates over the last couple of months. Throw in a hectic schedule at work, moving house and much more and the weeks quickly pass by. In the meantime here's some news....
Chris has posted the following update on his official website.
The new music for "Good and Evil" is officially written, and it is time to start the recording. I am very excited about this material because I challenged myself to push the envelope and grow artistically. The writing process was definitely time consuming because I wanted these songs to inspire people and excite them. So I knew that this CD had to be better than anything I have done to date. Fortunately, I have all this positive energy and motivation which led to some really amazing riffs and crazy soloing. This music is definitely Metal with lots of fast shredding guitar solos and screaming vocals. The Rhythms are heavy and addictive and the vibe is positive with lots of energy....
As many of you know, I don't like to interact with the media very often, but if this recording turns out well, I will promote this release heavily and tour extensively. But, first thing is first, so I am headed into the studio with my boys and hope to see all of you soon !!
Thanks for all of your support !!!!!!!!
