Nita Strauss, the Los Angeles-based guitar shredder for the ALICE COOPER band, has recorded a guest solo for the upcoming debut album from OVER IT ALL.
OVER IT ALL consists of LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe, ANIMALS AS LEADERS guitarist Javier Reyes, SWORN ENEMY guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci, 33 & West booking agency co-founder JJ Cassiere and Mediaskare Records head honcho Baron Bodnar. The group's first album is due later in the year via Sumerian Records.
Regarding the decision to enlist Nita to play on the LP, OVER IT ALL said in an Instagram post: "[We] got together yesterday to start listening to the basic tracks of what we have recorded so far [and] we realized we needed a few ripping guest guitar solos in some spots. Between all the guys in the band, we know a lot of shredders, some really legendary dudes. But we are SICK of 'dudes' — we have MORE than enough 'dudes' already. Dudes are hairy and ugly. Dudes act like uncivilized idiots most of the time. And dudes fucking STINK, always farting and stinking up the RV. We don't want to hang out with any more dudes. We have plenty of dudes as it is. No more fucking dudes, please. The perfect answer to our dilemma? [Nita]! So thanks so much Nita for bringing down your signature [Ibanez] JIVA axe and absolutely DESTROYING IT. It was a pleasure to watch the best female guitarist in the world make our record a lot better. Also for modeling our VERY FIRST OVER IT ALL t-shirt design. It sure looks a lot better on you than it does on some smelly-ass hairy DUDE."
