If you needed more guidance then why not recruit one of the best drummers in the Prog scene and John Macaluso who helped produced the record himself, talk about a bunch of New York dudes huh? Anyhow this is what drew me to the table when I heard Macaluso was involved in the project I knew it would be high quality material.
I guess I wanted to go back to basics, that’s all really. The guys
are great guys, I have known them for many years but sometimes people
grow in different directions. They always stayed in that German power
metal kind of bubble I would say. Not to say that in a negative
way, that is their trademark and they wanted to keep that. I think I am
more of a free bird somehow
