Former CIVILIZATION ONE Keyboardist Releases Pre-Production Solo Tracks

Brazilian keyboardist Jesper Stotz (ex-CIVILIZATION ONE) has updated his MySpace page with three tracks that will appear on his first solo album, tentatively due late 2008. "These [recordings] are from pre-production, but despite the rough mix, you can [get] a good idea [of] what is about to come," says Jesper. "The music wanders mostly throughout the heavy metal field, but people will find diverse influences within the songs with the greatest of ease."

Jesper is in talks with several European labels about releasing the CD. "Nothing has been officially set so far, but I believe there are gonna be some nice surprises in the near future," he says.

Stotz previously stated about his upcoming CD, "The album has basically a heavy/power metal approach, but one can find some experimental/darkwave stuff in it as well. It's gonna be an instrumental album, but it's definitely NOT only for musicians to enjoy. The songs are somehow accessible."
