ADAGIO Keyboardist To Guest On STYGIA Debut

ADAGIO's Kevin Codfert will record the majority of keyboards on "Divine Allegiance", the debut album from STYGIA, the project led by Boston, Massachusetts-based up-and-coming "shred" guitarist Todd Seitz. Todd says, "Though there have been a few changes of plans with keyboardists, this should be the final one. Kevin plans on starting his keyboard recording after the upcoming show with ADAGIO. I'm expecting some killer playing after hearing his work on the new ADAGIO record. Mike Vescera is just about finished with the vocal recording. I'm extremely happy with his performance. You can even get a hint of his old days with LOUDNESS.

"There have been quite a few delays, but the album should be ready middle of this year. There's also the factor of finding a suitable label or distribution for the release. There may be another guest or two announced before the conclusion of the album. I'll try and confirm this soon!"

01. Colossus
02. The Hunter
03. Journey Through The Sea
