At this point of the recording process for the new Act Of Defiance (or AOD) record, Drums, Rhythm Guitars, Bass are finished – Guitar solos, clean guitars are pretty close to being completed, and Henry is around 70% done with vocals. The guys still have a few weeks to wrap things up as it were, before we begin to mix the record with Chris “Zeuss” Harris, to which I personally cannot wait. The finish line is not far away in terms of the recording process and all of us cannot wait for you to hear what we have been working on for the past several months.

People often ask me what does the new music sound like??? I loathe putting music in a nice tiny “Heavy Metal sub-genre” box, so I won’t. Like I have said from the get-go, this music is 100% pure Heavy Metal made purely for musical purposes. We are creating music that we totally love with hopes that others will dig it as well, which at the end of the day is all you really can try to do, IMO. Elements of thrash, progressive, traditional, dynamic – it’s all there and then some.

We have been working with Travis Smith (Opeth, Nevermore, Overkill, Sanctuary, etc.) for our artwork, to which he has really come up with some twisted, bizarre, awesome concepts (right up my alley) which has also been very exciting – we cannot wait to see the finished ideas, to which he will provide in due time. We will keep you informed on things as they happen, rest assured, until then……………”
