Spirits of Fire Featuring Steve DiGiorgio, “Ripper” Owens, Chris Caffery, Mark Zonder ,to Release Debut Album In Early 2018!

As previously announced, Testament’s Steve Di Giorgio teamed up with TimRipperOwens, Chris Caffery and Mark Zonder, to Launch a new musical project, entitled Spirits Of Fire (after the title of one of their songs)! This new outstanding supergroup is currently halfway through recording their debut album. The music can best be described as ”Classic Priest meets Savatage”.

“It’s going to be a great album!” says producer Roy Z and fans can look forward to a release in the early part of 2018!

Frontiers Music Srl is known for being one of the most creative labels around with our keen ability to build new bands and projects featuring musicians of outstanding quality and who come from unique backgrounds. While the A&R vision has mostly been concentrated in the melodic rock genre, it should be noted, for those who haven’t picked up on it from some of our releases in the past few years, that there is always a “Metal Heart” beating in the head offices in Naples, Italy.

So, after an intense brainstorming session, a dream team of renowned metal musicians including Tim “Ripper” Owens (ex-Judas Priest, Iced Earth) (ex-Judas Priest, Iced Earth), Chris Caffery(Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Steve DiGiorgio (Testament, Death, etc.) and Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord) was born and put together under the direction of renowned LA-based producer Roy Z Ramirez (Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Tribe Of Gypsies).

Just recently Steve Di Giorgio signed the worldwide Artist Deal with Alpha Omega Management, inaugurating the new Alpha Omega Management Branch, dedicated to the needs and interests (Booking, media, communication, promotion) of session musicians and solo artists.

Testament- Brotherhood of the Snake

1. Brotherhood of the Snake
2. The Pale King
3. Stronghold
4. Seven Seals
5. Born in a Rut
6. Centuries of Suffering
7. Black Jack
8. Neptune’s Spear
9. Canna-Business
10. The Number Game

 

Begining with one of the most anticipated albums in the thrash metal history, Megadeth’s “Dystopia”, and continuing with Anthrax’s “For All Kings”, Death Angel’s “The Evil Divide”, Metallica’s “Hardwired… to Self-Destruct“, Sodom’s “Decision Day” and Destruction’s “Under Attack”, 2016 is a year that has blown thrash metal fans’ minds.

Four long years after the release of their impressive classic, “Dark Roots of Earth”, the thrash titans Testament return with the most powerful line-up since their eighth studio album, “The Gathering”: furious Chuck Billy on the vocals, dynamic guitar duo of Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson, Gene Holgan known as “The Human Drum Machine” and Steve DiGiorgio with his great bass work, who rejoined the band in 2014, thirteen years after the album “First Strike Still Deadly”, the last album he recorded with the band.

The storyline of this conceptual album is filled with the elements of dark fantasy, telling us about Sumerian scriptures dated to more than 6,000 years ago, which were written by a secret society of Draconian aliens during the human history. Metaphorically, the Brotherhood , founded by an alien Ea, represents “New religion”, whose particular task here is to enlighten the mankind and free it from Christianity regarding it as an existential threat and in some way “social illness”.

The record opens with the “First strike still deadly” track, Brotherhood of Snake, with Chuck Billy’s noticeable volcanic roars and growls. In comparison with the title track, “The Pale King” introduces some melodic parts, influenced by the elements of the album “The New World Order”.

With the third song and the first highlight of the album, “Stronghold”, the snakes really show the magic they can create. Unfortunately, most of the other songs on the album, with the exception of “Neptune Spear” with some interesting new patterns by the formidable Skolnick/Peterson guitar duo, suffer from the same symptom: a lack of fresh ideas, relying on their old things from “The Legacy” and “Souls of Black”.

The monotony is killed with a punishing breakdown guitar sections on the last track and the second highlight of the album, The Number Game, which Billy wrote with Exodus frontman, Steve “Zetro” Souza.

Despite the excellent production, and good old Chuck Billy’s voice getting better with time (like wine), in comparison with “Dark Roots of Earth”, which contains various degrees of heaviness, this album does have some defects: all songs are near-identical, there are no melodic passages and the riffs have been heard over a thousand times.

This time, the fifth band of the Big Four and the most consistent thrash metal band, delivers a solid, though a little bit stereotypical and generic thrash metal album, confirming their excellent technical skills, superhuman, ageless voice of the metal superman Chuck Billy, a man who survived a near-death experience with cancer in 2001, with youthful vigor and aggression. However, the album just isn’t original enough to keep one’s attention as much as a Testament album could.
