CHRIS CAFFERY: New Solo Album 'Keeps Getting More Exciting As Each Track Goes Down'

Guitarist Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA) entered the studio at the end of April to begin recording his new solo album for an October release. According to Chris, "My new CD, 'House Of Insanity', is nearing the final days of tracking. I will break for the weekend and begin mixing on Monday. This will be the first full-length CD I have mixed alone!

"I must say I have never been so excited about anything I have ever done. I have been trying to keep my over excitement to a bit of a low because you always like what you are doing as you do it, but this stuff just keeps getting more exciting as each track goes down. From the insane drums of John Macaluso to the additional background vocal and keyboard work by Mr. Lonnie Park (TEN MAN PUSH).

"I cannot wait for everyone to hear this music. The majority of the tracking and engineering have been done by myself, alone. I have had my moments of insanity while recording, believe me!!! However, the end results are going to be worth it."

Caffery recently revealed that this next solo album will include "a really cool metal cover of 'Get Up, Stand Up' by BOB MARLEY." He added, "It is actually a cool metal anthem!" Other working songtitles set to appear on the CD include "House of Insanity", "Shame", "Fight The Fleas", "Sorry", "Schizophrenia", "Seasons Change", "Back's To The Wall", "Solitaire", "Winter in Hamburg" and "No Matter What". The instrumental track "Schizophrenia" will contain "many guest solos," including those from Glen Drover (ex-MEGADETH), Jeff Loomis (NEVERMORE) and Alex Skolnick (TESTAMENT, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA).
