Former CELTIC FROST Guitarist Begins Writing Material For New SUBSONIC Release

Former CELTIC FROST/current SUBSONIC guitarist Ron Marks has issued the following update:

"Industry legend Rick Wells of Minarik Guitars has kindly invited me to winter NAMM in Anaheim, CA. I'd met Rick last summer and he's a devoted proponent of SUBSONIC. Both Dan Laudo [SUBSONIC/ex-PRONG drummer] and myself will be there (Jan. 20-21) promoting the band and hanging out with all the other trouble-makers. Should be big fun.

"The holidays are upon us again and I hope you've all been good this year and made out your lists. I, of course, haven't been good at all. I've spent these past months alone in the snow covered mountains writing material for a new CD. During one trip the temps never rose above 18 degrees and were near zero at night. That's Farhenheit, by the way. No suntan on white, sandy beaches with palm trees and room service for this kid. Gee, is that an icicle on your nose or are you just glad to see me?

"No matter your track record, every writer (the honest ones) wonders if they have another album left in them. What have I got to say and is it worth the telling? I won't pretend the writing was easy but I believe the tracks sound to me like the next SUBSONIC release. No title for this thing yet but I there are a few ideas flying around. Hopefully it will name itself once the songs are recorded and become more cohesive."

SUBSONIC's sophomore album, "No Such Soul", is available worldwide from Sonic Wave International. The follow-up to 2002's "Super-Vel" (Outlaw Entertainment) includes a hidden track, "Horror Vacua" — a song Ron originally wrote for CELTIC FROST, but which was never recorded by the influential Swiss outfit.
