|Hannes Grossmann solo album|
2013-12-05 by Voivod STAFF | 5 Comments
|German drummer extraordinaire Hannes Grossmann (Obscura/Blotted Science) will release his first solo album, entitled The Radial Covenant in December.|
Grossmann commented on his first solo effort as follows:
The music on the album sounds a lot like my band Obscura, but that's just how I compose. The reason not to release it as an Obscura album is simple: Obscura is a band, which means that four people work together and create music as a collective. If I write 45 minutes of music on my own, it has to be a solo record. It's probably gonna take another year until a new Obscura album will see the light of day, so here's your chance to make time pass more quickly.
The album features guest participations from Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore), Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Spawn of Possession), Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura), Florian Magnus Meier (Noneuclid, Dark Fortress), Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry), Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink, Watchtower), Jimmy Pitts (Spastic Ink, Pitts/Minnemann), Danny Tunker (Aborted) and Fountainhead.
