Florida progressive metallers MINDCAGE are putting the finishing touches on their new album, "Our Own Devices", with veteran rock and metal producer Michael Wagener (OZZY OSBOURNE, METALLICA, MEGADETH, MÖTLEY CRÜE, W.A.S.P., OVERKILL, ACCEPT) at his WireWorld Studios. The band is very excited to stay in Nashville the entire month of December and work with Michael Wagener to realize this extraordinary vision.
Set in an alternate history of a highly plausible future, MINDCAGE's new concept album warns of what may become of our society if we turn our backs on the importance of arts, music, humanities, and spirituality. It also introduces the world to Arabella Vash, a woman on a mission to awaken and enlighten a world gone wrong. Her message will shake humanity to its very core.
Comments MINDCAGE guitarist Dietrick Hardwick: "We are very excited to announce that we have chosen Julie Westlake (HYDROGYN) as the voice of Arabella Vash for 'Our Own Devices'. Julie has the power and emotion in her voice needed to convey Arabella's journey and character. She sounds amazing and has a command and range of voice that is just uncanny. It's also been a real dream come true for us to work with one of the greatest record producers of all time, the legendary Michael Wagener. We couldn't be happier!"
Adds executive producer Ben Galecki: "This has just been an extraordinary experience, seeing how everything is coming together. The band works so efficiently with Michael Wagener that they have finished recording ahead of schedule and are now entering the mix phase. Michael really knows how to decipher what the band is going for and get the absolute best from them. This is going to be epic!"
