Ex-CARCASS Frontman Given Advice Column In DECIBEL Magazine

Former CARCASS frontman Jeff Walker now has his very own advice column in Decibel magazine. Send your questions about relationships, musical technique, or just about anything else to [email protected], and look for Jeff's eminent guidance in the magazine's next issue.

As previously reported, Walker is currently recording a solo album consisting exclusively of country and blues covers from artists including SKEETER DAVIS, HANK WILLIAMS, JOHNNY CASH, CONNIE SMITH, and JOHN DENVER — albeit with a metallic spin.

Walker has already recorded contributions from H.I.M. drummer Gas, H.I.M. frontman Ville Valo (bass/backing vocals), former CARCASS guitarist/FIREBIRD frontman Bill Steer (lead guitar, harmonica, slide guitar, vocals), AMORPHIS guitarists Esa Holopainen and Tomi Koivusaari (guitars), keyboardist Santeri Kallio (keyboards) and bassist Niclas Etelävuori (bass). Walker also plans to enlist CATHEDRAL vocalist Lee Dorrian, ex-FAITH NO MORE bassist Billy Gould, members of fellow Liverpudlians ANATHEMA, and former CARCASS drummer Ken Owen as part of the project.

Walker recently lent his vocals to a track called "Pledge Yourself to You" on the new NAPALM DEATH album, due in February 2005 from Century Media. In addition, he has recorded a guest appearance for the new LP from Finnish death grinders TO SEPARATE THE FLESH FROM THE BONES, available now on Spinefarm Records.
