Ulterium Records is proud to announce the release of “Angel In the Ashes”, an all-star charity track for sale with 100% of the income going to feed homeless and refugee families in Greece. The song is being released under the banner Project Aegis, and was composed by Theocracy songwriter and vocalist Matt Smith. You can watch a studio video with the track below.
“Angel In the Ashes” features vocals by Rob Rock (Solo, Impellitteri), Daísa Munhoz (Vandroya, Soulspell), Vasilis Georgiou (Sunburst, Black Fate), Leah McHenry (LEAH) and Smith, as well as a guitar solo by Gus Drax (Sunburst, Black Fate). The artwork was created by Markus Sigfridsson (Darkwater, Harmony).
Project Aegis previously released the charity single “Collide and Spark” in 2014, the proceeds from which went to feed the homeless in the Nashville, Tenn., area of the U.S.
“I’ve been wanting to do another charity single since we had such a great experience the first time around,” says Smith. “The challenge was finding the time and the appropriate cause, as well as putting together a lineup worthy of the caliber of talent we had on the last song. I think we did it!”
“The song is about someone who decides to take that first step to help a person in a dark or dangerous situation. I was talking to some friends of mine who live in Greece, and every weekend they help feed the huge number of poor, homeless and refugee families in that area. It’s a massive need, and the dollar you spend on this song can make a huge difference in providing a hot meal or a blanket for someone. It’s a very worthy cause, and everyone involved in the track freely gave their time and talent to make this happen. We hope you enjoy it!”
Frontiers Music srl is pleased to present the music video for Impellitteri’s “Empire Of Lies”! The song is taken from their upcoming album, VENOM which is out now in Europe and the UK and will be released tomorrow in the U.S.!!!
Impellitteri is a heavy metal band formed and led by guitarist Chris Impelliteri. The band has released numerous albums, which are notable for Chris’ virtuoso style of playing. VENOM is the band’s 10th studio album and first original album since 2009 and includes two bonus tracks. This album also sees the return of vocalist, Rob Rock – The Voice of Melodic Metal!
Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the release of the brand new IMPELLITTERI studio album entitled “Venom” on April 17th in Europe and April 21st in North America.
With the release of the new album titled “Venom”, IMPELLITTERI deliver a record filled with addictive and memorable riffs, guitar solos that feature Chris Impellitteri’s blistering shredding technique coupled with strong melody and taste. Rob Rock vocals are mesmerizing, melodic, and will make the listener sing along with each song long after the record is over. Lastly, the band boggles the mind with brutal drumming (featuring John Dette, ex TESTAMENT, SLAYER etc) filled with speed and groove and beastly bass playing (curtesy of James Pulli) that supports IMPELLITTERI’s sonic madness! The result is a record that excites and musically satisfy every Metal and Rock fan, and every musician around the world. To add to their quest, IMPELLITTERI also wanted to create music that would take the listener on a musical journey thru different time periods of metal and rock.
Chris Impellitteri is heralded as one of the world’s greatest guitar shredders. He has won Best Rock Guitarist Awards on several magazines during the years for his guitar soloing. He is the first guitarist to be branded as the fastest guitarist in the world by the international media. Recently and without any promotion, Impellitteri was officially voted 2nd fastest guitarist in the world by “Guitar One” magazine; and “Guitar World” magazine recently listed Chris Impellitteri within their top 50 fastest guitarists of all time!
Rob Rock is one of the greatest voices in Metal today. From his early days with M.A.R.S. through his long association with Impellitteri, Rob has proved consistently that he has what it takes to be a major player on the metal scene. Rob Rock has finally released a solo cd and has enlisted the help of long time friend and Bruce Dickinson cohort, Roy Z. Together they have created an outstanding piece of metal that is sure to get Rob the recognition he deserves. I recently had the opportunity to pose these questions to Rob Rock.
