Oliva is currently in Iowa to assist in programming the TSO light show… is there anything this guy can’t do??
JO has completed vocal tracking on a few songs with many additional trial runs now on tape. When he returns next week, he will finalize all his lead tracks and then we head on into massive, massive back-up singing…Oliva just never knows when to leave a good thing alone…hehe!
It is once again awe-inspiring to witness pure genious and power when it come to JO’s vocal tracks and his songwriting. Part of the staple JOP sound has become his ability to change characters and voices at will and to create incredibly interesting, thought provoking, passionate and down-right insane vocal melodies. Tom Morris and I have been pushing him to the edge (as JO requested), and we have met that challenge with great enthusiasm and also a bit of joy watching him suffer…. .
Oliva’s tenancious attitude, drive and full desire to do the best he can is only partially over-shadowed by the seemingly impossible task of singing songs that would require most of us to swallow mass consumptions of razor-blades in order to deliver what would be considered as torture to any metal music lover….We are all stoked to say the least, and proud of his commitment to giving all of you…all he has!
Laporte and McDine will finish things up this week. The string sections are almost complete as well. Matt, Kevin, myself, Oliva and guest singer Todd Latorre (Crimson Glory) will dive into back up singing next week.
From there it’s final reviews and begin mixing in early November. We will deliver the record on-time to AFM for our 2010 release.
Special thanks to Howard Helm, who has once again stepped in to lay down his amazing piano and keyboard tracks. Howard also played on Global Warning.
Also appearing on this CD will be the great Casey Grillo (supreme drummer of KAMELOT and an all around great guy). I am priviledged to call him my friend and welcome his contributions to the record. Casey will be helping to fill our need for a war-time drum corp section for the song “Death Rides a Black Horse”. Thank you Casey!
We once again thank you for the great support and pure enthusiasm for the next CD. So far, so good….we are all very happy with our progress
Legendary hard rock icons RATT announced today that Infestation will be the title of their next album, due out in March 2010 via Loud & Proud/Roadrunner Records. Infestation is the band’s first studio album since 1999. Infestation was produced by Elvis Baskette (Chevelle, Incubus, Limp Bizkit) and marks the very first time in their storied career that RATT have recorded outside of Los Angeles! The band lived together at Elvis’ Virginia studio while recording the album. In addition to core, longtime members Stephen Pearcy, Warren DeMartini and Bobby Blotzer, the album also features new guitarist Carlos Cavazo, formerly of Quiet Riot, and Robbie Crane, who has been with the band for twelve years, will continue on bass.
