DEATH Tribute Update: SHADOWS FALL Members Confirmed

Guitarist James Murphy (ex-DEATH, OBITUARY, TESTAMENT) has issued the following update regarding the status of the upcoming tribute CD, "Within The Mind - In Homage To The Musical Legacy Of Chuck Schuldiner":

"Hi everyone,

"It's been a good while since my last update and I apologize... Been quite busy with the 'Within The Mind' project, which for those who don't already know is the star-studded tribute to Chuck Schuldiner and DEATH that I have been working on, as well as a few guest appearances which you will be able to read about on my personal site.

"Here's a list of everyone who has recorded so far...this includes all the way to back to the start of the project and brings us right up to date as of last week:

Richard Christy (drummer from DEATH, CONTROL DENIED, and ICED EARTH)
Mark Hunter (vocalist from CHIMAIRA)
Matt Thompson (drummer from KING DIAMOND)
Matt Difabio (vocalist/guitarist from SINGLE BULLET THEORY and PISSING RAZORS)
Bill Mezic (bassist from SINGLE BULLET THEORY and SEVEN WITCHES)

and most recently....

Jason Bittner (drummer from SHADOWS FALL)
Matt Bachand (guitarist from SHADOWS FALL)

"Yes!! a couple weeks ago I traveled to Albany, NY where I was picked up at the airport by Jason Bittner and we headed directly over to Hydrostatic Recording Studios to begin setting up the drums and getting tones for the session.

"We started recording the drum tracks and rough guitar tracks for 3 DEATH songs (not telling yet!) the following day and SHADOWS FALL guitarist Matt Bachand showed up a little later that morning to be on hand to record guitar parts for one of the songs.

"The session went very smoothly and it was easy to tell that Jason had been playing the songs for quite a while and when you finally hear his performance on the CD there will no doubt as to why Modern Drummer magazine recently awarded him the #1 Up And Coming Drummer Award. Matt and Jason both kicked ass on the tracks and once again the high standard set by Richard Christy at the beginning of the project was maintained!

"Next up I'll be heading to the NY area again to record for the project with Dave Culross, Brett Hofmann, Ross Dolan, and others."
