Jeff Loomis Posts Studio Version Of New Song “A Liar’s Chain”

Former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis has given the studio version of his brand new track “A Liar’s Chain” its first public airing. The song, which features his touring lineup backing him, can be heard over at Metal-hammer.de.

Loomis had the following to say of it:

A Liar’s Chain is the first of three songs that I recorded with my band to officially debut online. We started playing it live on our last US run and it seemed to go over really well with fans. I had so much fun recording ‘Surrender‘ with Ihsahn on vocals for my last solo album that I wanted to do more songs like that. Joe Nurre, who has been playing guitar in my band for the last year or so, has a pretty killer death metal voice, so I thought it would be perfect to do some more stuff like this with him as well as the rest of the guys…”
