SILENT FORCE Guitarist Continuing Work On VOODOO CIRCLE Album

SILENT FORCE guitarist Alex Beyrodt is putting the finishing touches on his first solo album which will be released under the VOODOO CIRCLE banner. Due later in the year, the CD will feature contributions from vocalist David Readman (PINK CREAM 69), drummer Mel Gaynor (SIMPLE MINDS, GARY MOORE, BRIAN MAY, ELTON JOHN), bassists Rudy Sarzo (QUIET RIOT, DIO, WHITESNAKE) and Mat Sinner (PRIMAL FEAR, SINNER), and keyboardist Jimmy Kresic.

In a 2007 interview with The Mayfair Mall, Beyrodt stated about his upcoming solo album, "[Mel] played in SAMSON when Bruce Dickinson was in the band; he's also played with Gary Moore and Brian May. He lives over here in Germany and I'm very proud to say he's become a great friend of mine... We have a guy also who looks like Jon Lord and plays like Jon Lord, and there's me. It's even more vintage than SILENT FORCE. It's been too long and it needs to be done. I really enjoy this style, you know?! To me, there's no band nowadays that play in that style; DEEP PURPLE, RAINBOW, the old masters of course still do, particularly DEEP PURPLE, of course, but I feel really proud to be able to put my own interpretation on it."

SILENT FORCE's fourth album, "Walk the Earth", was released in Europe in February 2007 via AFM Records (the CD was issued in the U.S. on May 22 via Locomotive)). The German label has also reissued the band's first two albums — "The Empire of Future" (2000) and "Infatuator" (2001). "The Empire of Future" contains an acoustic version of the song "Saints and Sinners" as a bonus, while "Infatuator" includes a bonus live video of the title track.
