NATIONAL WRECKING COMPANY featuring members of The Lizards, Cactus, Humble Pie & The Plasmatics are releasing their highly anticipated debut album. The new release features one of the final recordings by guitar legend Bernie Torme, (best known for his work with the Ian Gillan Band and Ozzy Osbourne), who passed away this year. The song is a bonus preview track from the upcoming National Wrecking Company II release “Overture/Mechanized Confusion”.
A heavy diverse discourse on the current state of politics, war, religion and greed. The view from our vantage point of a global catastrophic claustrophobic dystopia.
We’ve included this ultra special bonus preview title track of National Wrecking Company II:(Overture/ “Mechanized Confusion”). In dedication to and featuring Bernie’s simply stunningly artful fretwork.
God bless Bernie Tormé, a true gentleman and a monumental talent.
