Illusionist CRISS ANGEL Talks About Working With GODSMACK's SULLY ERNA

Illusionist/escapologist/stunt performer Criss Angel recently spoke to MTV.com about his upcoming album, "Criss Angel: Mindfreak", which he says will be the official soundtrack to his popular television series "Mindfreak". The 22-track LP was produced mostly by Andy Johns (LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN) and features a DVD loaded with making-of footage and behind-the-scenes action.

On "Criss Angel: Mindfreak", the illusionist worked with several of his close friends, including GODSMACK's Sully Erna, EXTREME's Nuno Bettencourt and KORN frontman Jonathan Davis, who produced several of the album's tracks. The LP's first single, "MF 2", is a collaborative rocker penned by Angel, Erna (who plays drums on the cut) and Bettencourt (who handles bass and guitar duties).

"It was really incredible — I pinched myself," Angel said of recording with the trio of musicians. "To be in a situation working with artists who I respect and admire, artists I'm a fan of ... it was pretty mind-blowing. I'm really excited for people to hear the record. These songs don't need the show. They have a life outside of the show, and these are songs that stand on their own."
