According to The Commander-In-Chief Management, 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF is only days away from releasing her new song & concept video called “I am The Commander-In-Chief”.
The highly satirical song was written from the perspective of a dictator and in the video you will see “The Commander-In-Chief” totally unleashed as an actress. She studied footage of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Idi Amin + current dictators and world leaders for weeks to get into character. The result is epic! Her Mercenaries in the video are played by fantastic MMA fighters from the highly acclaimed fighting club “Gods of War” in Reading, England.
The video was shot at the prominent Wasing Estate in Berkshire in August 2013. The song was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios (Black Sabbath, Queen, Led Zeppelin) in Wales three weeks ago, with engineer James Mottershead. It is mixed by Pantera producer Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Hatebreed, Hellyeah), who also produced her debut EP “Evolution”.
The Chief did all guitars and vocals. Drums were played by world class drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Foreigner, Billy Idol) and bass was done by Norway´s bass virtuoso Peter Sæverud. The first version of the song was written in November 2008 but only the main riff remains in the version that is about to be released.
The video will be released on The Chief´s YouTube Channel, thecommanderinchief1 and the song will be available online on CD Baby, Itunes, Amazon, etc.
According to The Commander-In-Chief Management, 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF has released a video of herself playing her first instrumental song.

She will shoot her next concept video next week, for her next official single, recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales earlier this month.

The Commander-In-Chief Management has issued that the Norwegian 7string guitarist/singer/songwriter THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF has made 3 songs from her 2010 Demo “Battle for the Mind” available as Free Downloads online today. The Demo received outstanding reviews in 2010 but The CIC decided to not release it, since she wanted a more organic and less produced sound for her music.
She said this today: “These songs will be re-recorded in new versions at a later stage. However, I am very proud of the songs and I have decided to let my fans have the Demo versions for free. These songs are about issues that are currently getting a lot of press attention in several countries; the potential dangers of big Government´s infringement on people´s rights and freedoms, hypocrisy in politics and the battle for people´s minds. These are issues I am very passionate about and I want people to know that”.
The songs are “Battle for the Mind”, “Illusions are Dying” and “You´re so Crazy”. Go and get them HERE.
