We are very excited, and humbled to announce that we will be teaming up with classical guitarist Zachary Grim of the Baltimore MD area! We aim to combine his expertise in the classical genre with our aural assault of heavy metal to bring something to fans of both genres the likes of which have never been seen before!
This is a work in progress as it is definitely in the early stages; Both the band and Zach agree “we want to take something along the lines of Lamb of God’s Ashes of the Wake instrumental track and mix it with a classical piece like Igor Stravinksy’s Rite of Spring.” The accented attacks, and sporadic nature of Rite of Spring make it one of the most metal songs in the classical genre… all it’s missing is a Pig’s Heart!
This idea is long in the making, Zach has wanted to make classical music more relatable and accessible to a large audience for as long as he can remember, and being a fan of heavy metal himself we were more than happy to assist in making this idea a reality.
In addition to recording the track(s) this collaboration plans to hit the road together to showcase that when genres cross party lines, a lot of good can come from it.
