THE ALIEN BLAKK's BLACK SABBATH Cover Featuring ERIC A.K. Posted Online

THE ALIEN BLAKK, the band led by guitarist/producer Joshua Craig, has uploaded its cover version of BLACK SABBATH's "Snowblind" to MySpace. The track comes off THE ALIEN BLAKK's sophomore album, "Bekoming", which is expected before the end of the year via an as-yet-untermined label. The CD, which was mixed by Glen Robinson (VOIVOD, ANNIHILATOR), will feature guest appearances Deron Miller (CKY), Eric A.K. (FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), Kevin Talley (DAATH), Donnie Hamby (DOUBLE DRIVE) as well as contributions from the band's current lineup, which includes David Ellefson (bass; MEGADETH), Craig Nielsen (drums; FLOTSAM AND JETSAM) and Joshua Craig.

Says Craig of "Snowblind", "I wanted to play a sick-ass version of this song as we do live. The song is slow as molasses and downtuned to X. I began doing this song this slow when Joe Nunes played with THE ALIEN BLAKK in Chicago a couple years back. We were sitting in my truck in the freezing cold listening to the song and Joe suggested we play it as slow as humanly possible. We did and it was great. So the slowness stuck! When it came time to cut it, I always do a long improvised lead at the end of the song live, so we did it in the studio as well. One guitar track for the five-minute lead section at the end. I called A.K. to sing with me on it and he ended up staying and cutting on other tracks as well and did a great job. As I love acoustic guitar, the whole mid-section is acoustic guitar only with A.K. singing."
