HATEBREED/KINGDOM OF SORROW frontman Jamey Jasta has confirmed that he has been collaborating with former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach on material for Bach's next solo album. Jasta says, "All the SKID ROW/Bach fans need not to worry — I am not trying to infuse a HATEBREED/KINGDOM OF SORROW sound or style. I'm just hoping to write and produce a bunch of GREAT anthemic metal/rock songs for him. Think 'Painkiller'-era [JUDAS] PRIEST meets 'Vulgar Display' [PANTERA] meets 'Slave To The Grind' [SKID ROW]."
Bach recently stated about his upcoming follow-up to 2007's "Angel Down", "I plan on writing this record with my band, Roy Z ['Angel Down' producer who has worked with JUDAS PRIEST, BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD and HELLOWEEN] hopefully, and definitely Jamey Jasta of the band HATEBREED. Jamey and I are getting together this month to record some demos. I am not going to make a HATEBREED record, I am going to work on material with Jamey that will be heavy and anthemic but still make sense next to the other CDs I have done."
Sebastian Bach's "Angel Down" limited-edition CD/DVD package, featuring "Roadrage", a film by Sebastian Bach, was made available in the USA as an FYE exclusive at all FYE stores nationwide and also at the FYE booth on last summer's tour with POISON. "Roadrage" features five tracks, "100% live, pro-shot" on the 2006 North American GUNS N' ROSES/SEBASTIAN BACH tour.
"Angel Down" was produced by Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, HALFORD, JUDAS PRIEST), and recorded at Sound City Studios and Under City Studios in Los Angeles, California. Joining Bach in the studio were guitarists "Metal" Mike Chlasciak and Johnny Chromatic, Bobby Jarzombek on drums, and Steve DiGiorgio on bass. GUNS N' ROSES' Axl Rose makes a special guest appearance contributing vocals on three of the album's songs — "(Love is a) Bitchslap", a cover of AEROSMITH's "Back In the Saddle" and "Stuck Inside".
