Ex-ANTHRAX Frontman NEIL TURBIN: I'm Singing My Ass Off On Solo Debut

Former ANTHRAX frontman Neil Turbin is continuing work on his upcoming solo album, entitled Threatcon Delta, at Jet City Studios in Los Angeles, California for a mid-2002 release through Metal Mayhem Records. According to Turbin, I've been diligently working on my album, which by the way is METAL! It will be out sometime later in 2002. I get into the studio when both [my and my the rest of the band's] schedules allow. It's not a one shot deal where the band goes in and records the whole thing [on their own first]. The approach is atypical since I am tracking a collection of songs in order to keep continuity of a similar vibe. The way we used to do it in ANTHRAX is, we'd record the basic tracks, the rhythm overdubs, the guitars, etc... On the first ANTHRAX album, we ran out of time and money, and the vocals ended up getting rushed. 30 days to do everything else, then 2 days to do the vocals and then 2 days to do the mix. It sucked big-time. Anyway, that won't be the case this time around. Vocally, I have grown way beyond my years with ANTHRAX and look forward to putting out a really heavy debut album. Everyone who has heard the roughs had basically the same comment 'Man, that's some heavy sh.t dude. Guitarists Mitch Perry (i.e. MSG, TALAS, 7% SOLUTION), Kurt James (i.e. STEELER, DR. MASTERMIND, Willie Basse's BLACK SHEEP, KJB) and Vernon Anderson (INVICTA) rip their way through it. Mitch says I'm singing my ass off. I guess I would have to agree.

Among the songs that are set to appear on Threatcon Delta are the following:

01. Blue Screen of Death
02. Welcome to the Rat Race
03. Dog Eat Everything
04. Get Outta My Face
05. Piece Of Me
06. Cut To The Chase
