Renowned shred metal guitar virtuoso, XANDER DEMOS (James Rivera’s Sabbath Judas Sabbath, XDB, Solo) has posted a Soundcloud link to a raw, unmixed new XDB track called, “The Phoenix”. The two-minute, mostly instrumental, clip features the signature melodic shredding style that Demos has become known for, since his critically acclaimed 2012 Cj Snare-mixed debut, Guitarcadia (Rock ‘N’ Growl.) A searing keyboard solo from Jeff Morris is also featured. The full version of “The Phoenix” will appear on the forthcoming XDB album, Dancing Through Daggers, scheduled for late 2014 release. It is one of two album projects that Xander is currently recording; the other being his 2nd “solo” album, Runways and Waterways.
