ELECTRO QUARTERSTAFF - GRETZKY
[Tuesday, May 09, 2006]
Instrumental triple-axe shred team ELECTRO
QUARTERSTAFF have entered Private Ear Studios in Winnipeg
to record their debut full-length album for Willowtip , tentatively
titled Gretzky .
Guitarist Drew Johnston had this to say about the new album:
Gretzky strives to marry the insectoid
riffing of modern technical death metal with mutant starfish
rhythms that swell and contract like reptilian break-dancing on a
pirate cruise ship. ELECTRO QUARTERSTAFF are
self-proclaimed titans of progressive instrumental thrash metal ---
we are cosmic messengers of snake-charming harmony dedicated to the
exploration and deconstruction of romantic melody and swashbuckling
groove. Gretzky is the sound of three
riff assassins embarking on an intergalactic adventure showered
with bacon sizzling blastbeats and a seemingly never-ending supply
of supersonic titanium chestnut rhythms. Join us on the Mountains
of Riffs Spring Tour 2006!
In addition to recording their new CD, ELECTRO
QUATERSTAFF will be appearing at the 2006 Maryland
Deathfest. The band has booked a 3-week tour around their MDF
appearance, so be sure to catch them at a city near you.
