Mike LePond's Storyteller (Recording, Mixing, Producing and Artwork commentary)

Την στιγμή που γράφονται τούτες οι γραμμές ο Mike LePond συμμετέχει σε 22!!! (ενεργά ή έστω σε κατάσταση αναμονής, αλλά όχι διαλυμένα) μουσικά συγκροτήματα! Συγκροτήματα όπως οι Symphony X, Heathen's Rage, Eternity's End, Ross the Boss, Rivera / Bomma κλπ.

Μεταξύ αυτών και το προσωπικό του σχήμα, οι Mike LePond's Silent Assassins που δημιουργήθηκαν προ εξαετίας κι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους: το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους (2014) και το album "Pawn and Prophecy" (2018).

Ο τρίτος δίσκος τους είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Whore of Babylon" κι αναμένεται σε λίγες ήμερες. Στο μικρόφωνο βρίσκουμε (και πάλι) τον Alan Tecchio (βλ. Watchtower, Hades, Seven Witches, Heathen's Rage κλπ)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «In the "Mike LePond’s Storyteller" series, the man himself will discuss the Mike LePond's Silent Assassins upcoming album, 'Whore of Babylon', which is set for release on 26th June 2020 via Silver Lining Music. In this Storyteller episode, Mike reveals the recording, mixing and producing secrets of the new album.

Forging a union between the mighty worlds of heavy metal and ancient history, Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins are on a mission. Whore of Babylon, their third album, is a no-holds barred, gauntlet-thrown, real heavy metal mission lead by LePond (known worldwide as one of the foremost bass virtuosos in heavy metal music and a member of progressive metal band Symphony X).

If you never knew what it was like to experience the might of metal from the old school, Whore of Babylon will riotously teach you. From the scintillating fury of “Dracul Son” to the baroque mystery of the title track, LePond has written and produced the sort of album that old school metalheads dream of, with the likes of “Ironborn”’s steel-clad riffs swinging like battle swords, no concessions accepted and full-cranial impact guaranteed.

Ranging from looking into Julius Caesar on “Ides of March” to the Countess Báthory on “Lady Bathory”, and with each exploration thunderously scored by LePond, you can be certain that the Silent Assassins’ classic metal mission is richer than ever. Best known as the bassist for progressive metal giants Symphony X, Mike LePond has stepped out on his own to front his own project, Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins, an onslaught of true heavy metal in it’s purest form!»
