According to The Commander-In-Chief Management, Norwegian 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF is about to release the result of her first cooperation with another guitarist. The two guitarists have done something that has never been done before, and for that reason the preparations and recording has been surrounded by mystery and secrecy. The Chief says this about the process:
“I am used to playing very technical, heavy riffs and fast solos for hours every day, but this is the toughest guitar challenge I have ever faced. We met on Skype every other week for months, to keep track of each other`s progress, and we were pushing each other very hard. At some point, both of us had to take two weeks off from playing, since we both got injuries from practicing the song.”
This is a cover song, re-arranged for guitars only. The single will be available from all major Digital download stores and as a signed CD single (limited number). The single and performance video will be released on December 4th 2013.
The Commander-In-Chief Management has issued the following:

According to The Commander-In-Chief Management, Norwegian 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF has released her hard-hitting song and video called “I am The Commander-In-Chief” tonight. Check it out below:
The strongly satirical song and video features The Chief in the role as a crazy dictator. She studied footage of some of the most brutal dictators ever to get into character for the video and she mocks them all in the various scenes and in the lyrics.
The song was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios (Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queen). It was produced by The Chief, engineered and mixed by James Mottershead and mastered by Stephen Marsh (Megadeth, Los Lobos, Life of Pi).
The song features two fantastic guitar solos. Again she has no Auto tune or any other studio tricks on the recording. The song is the way she played and sang it in studio. The Chief did all guitars and vocals, drums were done by Brian Tichy (Foreigner, Whitesnake,Billy Idol) and bass by Peter Sæverud.
Her mercenaries in the video came from the renowned British MMA club “Gods of War” in Reading. Head Coach Phil Else did choreography for the fighting scenes.
