The offering named after the second single from Mike's upcoming solo album, "The Metalworker", also features additional tracks from the full-length CD.
"This Is War" was released on Tuesday, August 14 via Chlasciak's own imprint CMM Entertainment and is available via iTunes, Amazon MP3 and most other major digital distributors.
"This Is War" track listing:
01. This Is War
02. Tonight We Ride (instrumental)
03. Hell No!
04. M Is For Metal (instrumental)
"The Metalworker" features Chlasciak and vocalist Carlos Zema (OUTWORLD, VOUGAN) alongside Kevin Talley (DAATH, CHIMAIRA, HATE ETERNAL, SIX FEET UNDER) on drums and Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X) on bass.
Produced by Mike, "The Metalworker" was mostly recorded at Mike's House Of Metal Studios in New Jersey and mixed by Orlando Villasenor at Dead Room Studio in San Antonio, Texas. Artwork was provided by Guilherme Sevens of Sevens Design Studio (ADAGIO, PAINSIDE).
Says Mike. "['This Is War'] is a four-song collection of uncompromising metal that also features some definite straight-up sick guitar shred. You have two songs that Carlos sang on, one of them being 'This Is War', while 'Tonight We Ride' and 'M Is For Metal' are great, over-the-top, heavy guitar-hero instrumental tracks."
