File this one under “Never Saw It Coming” as the duo of guitarist Dan Lorenzo (Hades, Non-Fiction, The Cursed) and Ancient VVisdom’s Nathan Opposition have formed a project together.
That début EP will be available on CD and Digital Download formats and the guys have now released a lyric video for their first single, “Meant To Be”.
Both musicians commented on their new collaboration, with Dan Lorenzo saying:
“For the last decade since I recorded The Cursed CD (with Bobby Blitz from Overkill), I haven’t really felt the desire to jam music with anybody. I’ve had offers to join a few bands, but I’ve always considered myself more of a songwriter than a “real” musician. I never wanted to join somebody else’s band. A few months ago that all changed, when I heard the songs “The Opposition” and “Deathlike” by the band Ancient VVisdom.”
Added Nathan Opposition:
“Lorenzo and I became friends due to my inability to not be susceptible to flattery. Turns out he’s a really cool guy who writes awesome riffs, too. Randomly one day, I ask him about the band we are starting in joking fashion. I guess it was the right timing and the right person, because we immediately agreed we should actually start a project. Before I knew it he was sending me CDs of riffs and I had lyrics flowing like a faucet.“
Lorenzo expanded on Vessel Of Light‘s signing with Argonauta Records commenting:
“Although we conceded to the fact that signing to a label was improbable, I sent music to one of my former record labels and an Italian label I found that I thought was right for us: Argonauta Records. When Gero from Argonauta replied, I knew it was the right call. The right label. Somebody who knew and respected my past and Nathan’s currency. I am so happy that, thanks to Argonauta, the world will soon hear the magic Nathan and I have captured with Vessel Of Light.”
