Jeff Loomis Taps Ihsahn For New Solo Album


Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) has revealed that he has tapped Ihsahn (ex-Emperor) to lay down some guest vocals on his upcoming solo album. Speaking on that Loomis offered:

“I know most of you are aware that Christine Rhoades is doing some vocals on my album. At first I thought she’d be the only guest singer on the record but then this one song started coming together, it’s pretty brutal. I’ve always wanted to do really, really heavy music and after hearing this, both Aaron and myself thought we needed some crazy, sick singer on it.

We just sat around tossing names out for a bit, nothing really was sticking and then Aaron says, ‘I got it…Ihsahn‘ and it was one of those moments where you knew that was the answer all along, it just hadn’t been unlocked in your mind yet. Anyway, a few short emails back and forth and we had his vocal track in. It came out amazing. I can’t wait for you to hear it. Ihsahn, thanks again, it’s an honor to have you on my record.”

Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, etc.), Tony MacApline and Megadeth alumni Marty Friedman and Chris Poland are among the other guest talent set to appear on the effort; which Aaron Smith (7 Horns 7 Eyes) has been overseeing the production duties for.
