Vocalist/guitarist Richie Kotzen (formerly of POISON and MR. BIG) will contribute a guest guitar solo to the track "Too Many Times" on the forthcoming album from Italian thrashers ENEMYNSIDE, tentatively titled "The Black Issue". Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Withering Addiction", "The Cure", "Pitch Black", "Reveries" and "Faith No More".Commented ENEMYNSIDE vocalist/guitarist Francesco "Frallo" Cremisini: "I'm very proud to have such a great musician playing a solo on the band's new album. He's one of the most talented guitar players around and a really nice person." Added ENEMYNSIDE guitarist Matteo Bellezza: "The song he plays the solo on had this kind of instrumental part in the middle which sounded quite unusual for us because the first half is just with bass and drums and the second half with rythm guitars too. We needed something different from the other solos on the album, something really distintive, a solo which could play the lead role once the song gets there. Thanx to Richie now we got it!"
ENEMYNSIDE's new CD is being recorded at Temple Of Noise studios. ENEMYNSIDE supported BLAZE BAYLEY (ex-IRON MAIDEN, WOLFSBANE) on a tour of Finland and Sweden in April 2009. ENEMYNSIDE's second album, "In The Middle Of Nowhere", was released in 2008 through Hatestone Records. For more information, www.myspace.com/enemynside.
