This fucking rules hard. Like three-day old shit.
Of course, former Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis has been in the studio the last few months working on his highly anticipated sophomore solo album, to be released later this year. Now, we’re learning that the newest special guest booked for his LP is Ihsahn, formerly of Norwegian black metal band Emperor.
“I know most of you are aware that Christine Rhoades is doing some vocals on my album,” says Jeff in a press release.
“At first I thought she’d be the only guest singer on the record but then this one song started coming together, it’s pretty brutal,” he adds.
‘I’ve always wanted to do really, really heavy music and after hearing this, both Aaron and myself thought we needed some crazy, sick singer on it. We just sat around tossing names out for a bit, nothing really was sticking and then Aaron says, ‘I got it…Ihsahn’ and it was one of those moments where you knew that was the answer all along, it just hadn’t been unlocked in your mind yet.
“Anyway, a few short emails back and forth and we had his vocal track in. It came out amazing. I can’t wait for you to hear it. Ihsahn, thanks again, it’s an honor to have you on my record.”
I am a goopy, jizz-covered mess right now. My balls literally exploded after reading that engaging story.
