Italian guitarist Dario Mollo (pictured) is putting the finishing touches on the long-awaited third VOODOO HILL album, titled "Waterfall".
VOODOO HILL is a collaborative effort between Mollo and legendary singer/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH). The project's new CD marks the first rock release from Glenn since the demise of the short-lived power trio CALIFORNIA BREED.
The musical direction of "Waterfall" has a solid foundation in hard rock with some very melodic moments and diverse influences, ranging from classic DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW to LED ZEPPELIN and VAN HALEN.
Mollo says: "I put a huge amount of work on this record, even though Glenn also helped a lot, giving me a lot of suggestions for improvement.
"Glenn did an amazing job in songwriting/performing and I've never heard him so pleased about the results!
"I think this is the album we did together that suits his singing and style the most, and in the end, this truly became a team effort.
"Maestro Dario Patti did also a fantastic job arranging the orchestral parts in two songs.
"Every time I listen to the album, a stupid smile appears in my face, so I just can't wait to see people's reactions!"
The recording lineup for "Waterfall" is completed by Andrea Maiellano on bass, Riccardo Vruna and Vladimir Ruzicic Kebac on drums and Dario Patti on keyboards and bass.
Frontiers Music Srl plans to release "Waterfall" in September.
