Interview by Robert Cavuoto

 

 

Georgia hard-rockers The CEO will be releasing their debut album Redemption on June 25th via Rat Pak Records. The band is comprised of Mack Mullins on vocals, Vince Hornsby (Sevendust) on bass, Chase Brown and Beau Anderson on guitar, Joseph Herman on drums, and produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Mammoth WVH, Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Myles Kennedy, Tremonti).

The CEO draws on various musical influences and puts them on full display. The sound is modern metal music with hook-laden melodies of the 70’s groove rock bands. It’s Pantera, and Godsmack meets Breaking Benjamin and Ozzy Osbourne. From the driving guitar riff of the album opener “Twin Flame” to the final vocal melody of the album closer “Alone and Dead,” The CEO has created a sound that fits right in with Active Rock radio today. Songs like “Behind These Eyes,” “The Storm,” and “Casting Shadows” showcase the band’s harder side. The band explores their softer side on “Black Hearts” – the longest track on the album and a song that is sure to be a fan favorite. Preorders are available here: https://smarturl.it/theceoband
