More information has surfaced about NOT OF THIS WORLD, the band featuring DAYS OF THE NEW frontman Travis Meeks, Chuck Mingis (SPANKY LEE, EDENSTREET, DAYS OF THE NEW), Ray Rizzo (KING KONG, JAVA MEN, DAYS OF THE NEW), and David "Sailor" Bryant (MY OWN VICTIM).
The following is Bryant's posting on the DAYS OF THE NEW message board regarding the group's present status and future plans:
"Hello all, this is sailor from MY OWN VICTIM and N.O.T.W. I have all the facts for your questions and concerns towards the N.O.T.W. project.
"1.) Travis and I are very up to speed on the modern-day metal scene, and Travis and I made a conscious effort to bring something even more different to the people. The quote I made in the Blabbermouth release was meant that those are the bands we love the most together, not what we are going to sound like. I trust when you hear it, you will love it. Some have already gotten a taste of it here in Louisville, Kentucky.
2.) The project is still [in the works] and will happen. We had to take time away from it so that I could focus on releasing the new MY OWN VICTIM record, 'Above It All', and Travis could track new songs for his new DAYS OF THE NEW record. Then the [ex-]GUNS N' ROSES [lead singer audition] thing came up and he had to deal with that. I would say you'll be hearing more on NOTW in the months to come.
3.) Travis and I are equal partners on this project. He wanted to direct the
path the music goes, and said 'Sailor, do your magic when it comes to the
lyric writing.' I do 90% of the songwriting (lyrically). Travis, I'd say, puts
in the other 10% . Travis does 100% of the writing musically, and 100 % of the song structures.
"It's been an honor working with Travis. Together we create some of the most intense, brutal, meaningful, and downright onry [sic] metal ever heard to date (as well as MY OWN VICTIM). We have successfully tracked 6 songs and I have to say they're so intense they make you want to 'PEEL YOUR FACE!' "
