SUBSONIC, the solo project of former CELTIC FROST guitarist Ron Marks, will shoot a new video in Chicago between July 28 and August 3. The video will once again be directed by Jason Meudt. No further details are currently available.
In other news, Marks recently posted the following message on his MySpace page:
"I've just returned from a great trip to South Africa which was not only an incredible experience personally, but also inspirational from an artistic standpoint as well. There's no way someone could visit there and not feel its impact. There's a wildness and a freedom about Africa which doesn't exist anyplace else I've been. It revealed just how controlling and paranoid life in the U.S. has become and how that can envelop even a self-proclaimed individual like myself. Musically speaking, this trip couldn't have come at a better time and I'm looking at the next SUBSONIC release through new eyes. Back into the studio I go with a fresh kick in the ass. Can't be bad..."
SUBSONIC's sophomore album, "No Such Soul", is available on Sonic Wave International. The follow-up to 2002's "Super-Vel" (Outlaw Entertainment) includes a hidden track, "Horror Vacua" — a song Ron originally wrote for CELTIC FROST, but which was never recorded by the influential Swiss outfit.
Ron is a resident of Hermitage, Pennsylvania and has performed in several music-related projects. In his youth he and friend Dan Laudo (former PRONG drummer) played in a band with none other than Trent Reznor. Ron Marks has been called "an unusual and almost heavier version of Frank Zappa."
