Also, Voodoo Highway, whose awesome album "Broken Uncle's Inn" we reviewed here, has announced that they have parted ways with drummer Lorenzo Gollini and replaced him with Vincenzo Zairo, a drummer whose influences span from Zeppelin to Pantera and who had been playing with the power/prog metal outfit Altair.
Filippo Cavallini bass player for Voodoo Highway had this to say: "The causes are that Lorenzo Gollini has actually decided to retire to a "more private" kind of music scene... he rather prefers having jams in the local bars than playin' around. Such a pity for a talent like him but it's just his choice, we are still GREAT friends and we are actually really happy with Vincenzo, who is a really crazy guy and great drummer too! "
We wish the best for Voodoo Highway as the push forward with their musical careers.
In from the folks at Massacre Records they have put up a couple outstanding metal tracks for you to listen to on their website, one is from Zombie Inc. -The Chaosbreed and the other from Criminal-Akelarre, both shred! Go to Massacre's Website and you should see the playlist of pre-listening songs in the main content area, but you will immediately start hearing a song before you even click on the first track, that's from the player in the right column of the webpage, be sure to click stop on that or your head will explode from the intensity of combined metal tracks! :D
And one last thing, for all you folks who lean towards a bit o the goth side of metal, we leave you with the video Sin7Sins-Taste Of Twilight (below), whose album is available on Massacre Records.
