An unnamed supergroup containing some of the biggest, most well-known names in all of metal is being formed at the behest of Frontiers Music Srl.
The stellar ‘Who’s Who’ of artists involved includes guitarist Chris Caffery (Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), vocalist Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Charred Walls Of The Damned), bassist Steve DiGiorgio (Sadus, Testament, Death, Sebastian Bach) and drummer Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord, Graham Bonnet).
Enlisted to help with the writing and to produce the entire venture, including recording and mixing, is Roy Z. (Bruce Dickinson, Halford).
Early press reports indicate there’s no set schedule for completing a début album due to each respective member’s existing band commitments. That said, writing that début has commenced and material is said to be in the vein of a cross between Judas Priest and Savatage.
With such amazing talent on board, this promises to be one highly intriguing project and we’ll bring you further info as it becomes available.
