KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy LaRocque (a.k.a. Anders Allhage) has laid down two solos for the forthcoming EIDOLON album, "Apostles of Defiance". "We have known this for a while, but we really didn't want to release this info until it was a done deal," EIDOLON drummer Shawn Drover said in an official statement. "Now, I 'm happy to say that Andy LaRocque has laid down two guitar solos for our new record — which for me personally, is a tad surreal, being such a huge KING DIAMOND and especially a fan of Andy's guitar playing since their very first record ('Fatal Portrait') and now having him play on some tunes that myself and Glen has written, is beyond cool, really!!! It's one thing that I of course know him well from the Glen/KING DIAMOND thing, but for him to lend his talents for some killer Andy/Glen trade off solos — that is just too killer, man!!!! As well, Andy will again master the record in July for an October release through Metal Blade/Skyscraper."
