BRUTAL GODZ, the new Germany-based project featuring former/current members of BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, REBELLION and METAL CHURCH, is putting the finishing touches on the songwriting process for its upcoming debut album, "Echoes Of The Dead". The band will enter guitar player Uwe Lulis' studio in Frankfurt, Germany in April to begin recording 15 songs for a late 2010 release.
BRUTAL GODZ is:
Ronny Munroe (METAL CHURCH) - Vocals
Uwe Lulis (REBELLION) - Guitar
Alex Holzwarth (RHAPSODY OF FIRE) - Drums
Oliver Holzwarth (BLIND GUARDIAN) - Bass
Regarding Munroe's addition to BRUTAL GODZ, Lulis recently said. "Ronny impressed us with his voice and instantly made us feel like he is the perfect one. We sent him three songs to work on and even in the same night he responded. Within a short timeframe of several hours, Ronny had written lyrics, created and arranged all the vocal lines and then performed his work — something that [none] of us had never experienced before.
"Ronny is absolutely amazing. We can't wait to hit the studio and get the songs nailed down."
Added Munroe: "I am very excited and honored to be playing with such great musicians. The material is brutal and I'm looking forward to a crushing release."
Ronny Munroe sang on the last three METAL CHURCH albums and recently released his first solo record, "The Fire Within", on Rat Pak Records.
