ICED EARTH Drummer Completes Recordings For New DEMONS & WIZARDS Album

Drummer extraordinaire Bobby Jarzombek (ICED EARTH, HALFORD) has posted the following message on his web site:

"Hey all, we're already two weeks into the New Year — high time to fill you in on what's been cooking and what's in store for the immediate future.

"Last month I flew out to Tampa, Florida to record my drum tracks for the new DEMONS & WIZARDS CD. This was my first time recording at the famous Morrisound Studios and it was great working with Jim Morris. He's an excellent engineer/producer and gets some KILLER drum tones. Jon (Schaffer) and Hansi (Kürsch) wrote some real cool songs for this one. No release date as of yet though.

"Another album I recorded drums for a while back, ROB ROCK's AFM debut 'Holy Hell', should be out in April. My HALFORD bandmate Roy Z co-wrote the tunes, produced and plays guitar on it so you know it's gonna rock!

"Speaking of recordings, I recently did an interview with the 'Brazil Under
fansite where I commented on several of my favorite CDs that I played on. Here's the link.

"For those of you that don't know, I released my drum video, 'Performance & Technique', on VHS a year and a half ago. Well, after a year of shooting new footage, editing, authoring, contract negotiations, etc. — it's finally done: My instructional drum DVD, 'Performance & Technique', has just been released by Warner Bros. Publications and will be making its debut appearance at the NAMM show this week in Anaheim, California from (Thur.) Jan. 20th - (Sun.) 23rd. 'Performance & Technique' will be getting heavy rotation on the TVs in the Warner Bros. Publications booth (#3500) — so stop by and check it out.

"The DVD version of 'Performance & Technique' contains footage not included in the original VHS version including 4 bonus segments and PDF transcriptions for DVD-ROM. I will update my website in a couple of weeks with complete descriptions of the new segments and a link to order the 'Performance & Technique' DVD.

"Last but not least, I will also be making a couple of personal appearances at the NAMM show. I'll be at the Vic Firth Sticks booth (along with a few other drummers) at 3:00pm on Saturday doing a signing session and I'm also performing a drum solo at the Pearl Drums booth at 10:00 on Sunday morning.

"See you there!"
