Former EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE has released the first piece of music from his upcoming debut solo album, featuring mind-bending melodic leads in a style rarely seen today.
The six-string shredder, who is currently on the road working as a guitar tech for German thrash legends DESTRUCTION, is working on an album of extreme instrumental guitar music, which is due to be released in 2015. A demo version of the first track, ‘Spaceship Janitor’, is available now.
OL DRAKE comments:
“Hello, all. After a long, long time of trying to find my direction and sound for this project, I’m starting to churn material out of my brain that I’m starting to enjoy; I need to enjoy the stuff I’m writing. What we have here is a DEMO recording of one of the songs from the upcoming solo album; this is what I send to the label to show progress (this is NOT mixed or mastered). Its working title is ‘Spaceship Janitor’. I didn’t have a title for the song, but every time I listened through for writing directions I couldn’t stop imagining a janitor on a spaceship, mopping the space-floor with his space-mop, listening to this song on his space-iPod… in space.
“This track is not fully representative of the rest of the material on the album as I’m experimenting with a lot of my influences and inspirations; everything from rock and metal to acoustic and classical. Keep an eye on http://www.oldrake.co.uk and my Facebook etc. for more updates on the album! GUITAR ON!”
