KAKTUS PROJECT: 'Superstition' Artwork Unveiled

KAKTUS PROJECT, the brainchild of Sylvain Rouvière, will release its debut album, "Superstition", in early 2011 via Metalodic Records. The CD, which is "based on the melodic metal music of STRATOVARIUS, EDGUY, sprinkled with HELLOWEEN," according to a press release, will feature cover art (see below) by J.P. Fournier (EDGUY, AVANTASIA, KERION, INSTANZIA).

Commented Rouvière: "I have now been wanting, for a very long time, to make and release a metal album featuring many different guest artists. Unfortunately, a lack of funding and experience made this project a long-lasting dream. In May 2008, however, I managed to finish building my home studio and finally kickstarted my dream project. I met Belette (David Rousseau) who liked my demos and decided to be a part of it. In July 2008, we recorded the drums for the first five tracks. His drums takes were very solid. It was a fantastic start to the project, very encouraging indeed. I gave me hope that I could actually achieve what I had set out to do. Today, over 20 musicians are involved in the making of that album. Not all of them are already known in the music business but they do all share the same passion for their music and an undeniable talent too."
