Former THE EXALTED PILEDRIVER Guitarist Posts New Demo Track

September 23, 2009

Former THE EXALTED PILEDRIVER guitarist Mark Anthony (a.k.a. Kinky Pork Cream) has posted the first song from his PROJECT GEMINI solo project at this location. According to Anthony, "Transmission Channel" is a demo version of one of the instrumentals that will appear on the debut PROJECT GEMINI CD, entitled "Tornadic". He says, "I remember clearly the night the melody came to me. I was very much into watching sci-fi movies at that time and was into listening to trippy prog-metal stuff like STAR ONE or AYREON....and it certainly had an influence.. Also, my love of instrumental players like Paul Gilbert and Steve Vai were on my playlist a lot then." He adds, "I remember that I wanted to have a really melodic instrumental... not too long and that also had a sci-fi feel to it... almost like music you would hear in a sci-fi movie during a dark scene or an important scene. When I recorded the lead, I pictured a person trying desperately to contact someone while they were lost deep in space."

"Tornadic" will feature contributions from bassist Rob Tollefson (ex-PILEDRIVER) and drummer Gerry Keough (ex-PILEDRIVER, RECKON WITH ONE).

THE EXALTED PILEDRIVER's first album in 22 years, "Metal Manifesto", was released on November 18, 2008. The CD was mixed by veteran Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, NEVERMORE) and it follows up the classic cult discography of the band: "Metal Inquisition" (1985) and "Stay Ugly" (1986).
