All recordings and mixing are now complete for the forthcoming solo album from one of metal leading keyboard maestros – Mistheria. The keyboard wizard has checked in with the following guest updates.
Mark Boals (Royal Hunt, Ring of Fire, Y. Malmsteen) has completed his recordings on the song “Eye of the Storm – Metal Opera 82”. Of course, the song sounds nothing short of awesome! With a mix between elegant melody and metal power, Mark’s vocals made the song totally captivating! After long years trying to make real our collaboration, I’m really proud to feature Mark, one of the greatest metal singers, on my new album!
Mark comments, “This song brought back fond memories of the roots of Neo-Classic Metal. I had a blast recording it, and working with Mistheria!”
Rob Rock has posted the following statement on his involvement in the album.
“Recording for Mistheria was a pleasure for me. Lies and Deception is a great song we wrote together and the song is just full of monster musicians exploding all over the place. A very interesting song to be a part of. The song is also very energizing and my vocal performance is high octane, somewhat like my Wicked Maiden (Impellitteri) and Slayer of Souls (Rob Rock) vibe in a way. A very “live” vocal take, with lots of “on the spot” ad-libbing, which added a very emotional and natural performance attitude to the song. I really like it!” – RR
