BURNING EDEN PROJECT, the collaboration between QUEENSRCHE drummer Scott Rockenfield, Greg Giametta (singer songwriter, rhythm-lead guitarist, bassist, producer) and Neil Citron (Grammy Award-winning lead guitarist, producer, composer), has released the "Strange Days" single in CD and digital format via AudioWarrior Records."Strange Days" is a DualVision of an ecologically stark future earth and a spiritually inspiring window of opportunity to clearly identify and change the collision course all industrialized nations are on; poisoning our air, water and food supply. The writing, recording, mixing, and mastering was done in Seattle, Florida, Los Angeles, and Sweden. Commented Rockenfield: "When Greg approached me to work on this song with him, I was instantly excited about the idea...Anytime I can offer my services to help better humanity I will always do so. Working alongside Greg and Neil was very inspirational and the song spoke for itself!" Added Greg Giametta: "Working with veteran music industry professionals and talented visionaries of the global hard rock/metal industry such as Grammy Award-nominated composer, drummer, multi-platinum recording artist Scott Rockenfield, Grammy Award-winning Neil Citron, lead guitarist and Grammy Award-nominated KING DIAMOND guitarist/producer Andy LaRocque has enabled the 'Strange Days' single to set the bar by which future metal compositions may be measured. Scott, Neil and I built every aspect of the song using ProTools which made it very accessible for Andy to shape the final product at his new studio Sonic Train in Varberg, Sweden. "'Strange Days' was inspired by, in many respects, what some industrialized nations are doing to our ecosystem with disregard to the impact on wildlife, and the contamination of our food and water, and only guessing at what the actual long term health risk is, making our 'Smoke Stack' economy seem comparable to playing a very real and deadly game of Russian Roulette with our lives... "Recent headlines are the pages of history that are being written everyday, so when you look back at the pages of YOUR story, will you be able to say, 'I did everything I could?' I can't help but think that if there are advanced races observing us from the heavens how absurd it must appear to them that we poison our home world... our Eden... and to what end? Clean technologies have existed for years such as electric cars, hydrogen fuel cells with H2O as the exhaust, and even compressed air powered vehicles that are now running up 90 mph with a range of 800 miles. So the solutions are out there, hidden in plain sight under the veil of smoke from burning oil. Strange days indeed." Want to help but don't know where to start? Buy "Strange Days" for 99 and the BURNING EDEN PROJECT will donate a portion of sales to various green organizations and post the results on its web site at the end of each year.
