SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY Guitarist To Release 'Legionaire' Solo Album

Marc Rizzo has once again stepped out from his six-string duty with SOULFLY and CAVALERA CONSPIRACY to deliver his new solo project, "Legionaire", due on January 5 via Phlamencore Records.

"Legionaire" was written and recorded over a two-year period while Rizzo was on tour with SOULFLY and CAVALERA CONSPIRACY. Rizzo would break and get into the studio to record, then return to the road.

"I'm really excited about this record," states Rizzo. "I had a lot of time since my last record to really think about this new album. I think traveling all over the world, writing all the new material, really influenced the sound.

"After two U.S. solo tours in 2008, I think I really figured out what songs work well live.

"I'm really excited to play these new songs in front of a live audience. It's very cool to see kids slam-dancing and going off to instrumental music."

01. Release The Kraken
