Roger Staffelbach working on new material
Artension guitarist Roger Staffelbach is currently finishing up his debut solo album. As yet untitled the new album see Roger joined by vocalist Carsten "Lizard" Schulz (Domain) and keyboardist Mats Olausson (ex Malmsteen). Having been privy to 3 tracks from the album I can whole heartedly state that this is stunning progressive metal with a great neo-classical slant. The guitar work is superb amd overall songwriting is stunning and will please any neo-classical fan. Having personally felt that Roger was pushed to the background on the last couple of Artension releases its great to hear him getting the spotlight he deserves... one to keep an eye and ear out for.
As I get more information I will keep you posted.
