Concord, California-based progressive metallers THE ELEMENT, who feature in their ranks bassist Mitch Stewart (CIRCLE II CIRCLE) and drummer Henry Moreno (IMAGIKA, TAUNTED), have tapped legendary producer Beau Hill (RATT, WARRANT, WINGER, ALICE COOPER, BOB DYLAN, ERIC CLAPTON, GARY MOORE, EUROPE) to mixing/master their upcoming, as yet-untitled album.
Commented the group: "Beau Hill showed interest in working with the band a couple months ago after hearing the pre-production of the upcoming album. We were ecstatic, considering what an honor it would be to work with such an amazing producer like Beau."
Stated Beau Hill: "THE ELEMENT caught my attention with their excellent material, an unusual focus on arrangement details, and progressive-melodic hooks...sounds like the recipe for a hit to me..."
The first three songs for the upcoming CD were finished in August and the new single, "She's Made From Sand", is now available for streaming on THE ELEMENT's MySpace page.
Added THE ELEMENT: "The band has been working on this project for some time and the chemistry between Rafael Macedo [vocals, guitar], Mitch Stewart, Jeremy Villucci [keyboards], and Henry Moreno has given way to some amazing material and it is definitely our best work to date."
