IMMOLATION frontman Ross Dolan is the latest musician added to the list of guest performers set to appear on the forthcoming DEATH tribute album currently being put together by former DEATH/TESTAMENT guitarist James Murphy, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION/SUFFOCATION drummer Dave Culross, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION vocalist Brett Hoffmann and CKY guitarist Deron Miller.
As previously reported, SLIPKNOT guitarist Mick Thomson and bassist Paul Gray have both been confirmed as "major contributors" to the forthcoming CD, while former DEATH/MASSACRE and current SIX FEET UNDER bassist Terry Butler will contribute "some bass tracks" to the album, which is tentatively scheduled to be recorded beginning in mid-to-late August at SR Studios (MURDERDOLLS) in Des Moines, Iowa.
The exact track listing for the as-yet-untitled tribute CD is currently under wraps. However, the following cuts are definitely set to appear on the effort, according to Murphy:
01. Land Of No Return
02. Forgotten Past
04. Lack Of Comprehension
Murphy, who is spearheading the project and is the primary beneficiary of the funds raised through the sales of the album, has yet to secure a label deal for the tribute CD, which is expected to surface in early 2004. If the project fails to get picked up by a label soon, it will be financed by the band itself and sold to small distributors and online stores and web sites. James is currently receiving treatment for a massive brain tumor with which he was diagnosed in August 2001.
