AVANTASIA - Legendary Kiss-Axeman Bruce Kulick on guitars!

AVANTASIA - Legendary Kiss-Axeman Bruce Kulick on guitars! - 2010-01-04

2010-01-04 - He has played for Meat Loaf during the Bat Out Of Hell tour, he has been responsible for the lead guitars on Kiss-classics such as 'Crazy, Crazy Nights' and 'God Gave Rock'n'Roll To You'. And now he will upgrade the value of Tobias Sammet's new Avantasia epic with his remarkable lead guitar sound: legendary Kiss axeman Bruce Kulick!

Tobias says about the collaboration: "I've met Bruce in 2008 in Los Angeles. Kiss drummer Eric Singer (who has played drums for Tobias' Avantasia project as well) had played him our Avantasia album "The Scarecrow" and Bruce must have liked my voice as far as I know. So eventually he asked me to sing a song on his solo album "BK3" which is gonna come out in February 2010. I liked the idea, I liked the track, I liked Bruce and so of course I did it. Bruce has always been one of my favourite guitar players, he is one of the classic 80s shredders who got a unique tone and a terrific feeling. His playing is very tasteful. Now, I was looking for an additional lead guitar player for Avantasia to add a new color to some songs and it stood to reason to ask someone who had just become a member of my extended family, so I went for him, and I am happy he liked the idea and immediately agreed. Bruce is a super cool guy, he sacrificed Christmas Eve to start the recording sessions for me in Los Angeles. That says a lot about his work ethic. He is a real pro and a class act!

On April 3rd "The Wicked Symphony" and "Angel Of Babylon" will be released as a double CD in a deluxe box set. This sequel of Avantasia's 2008 chart breaker album "The Scarecrow" will feature guest stars Klaus Meine (Scorpions), Ripper Owens (ex-Judas Priest), Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween), Jorn Lande (Masterplan), Russell Allen (Symphony X), Bob Catley (Magnum), Eric Singer (KISS), Jens Johansson (Stratovarius), Alex Holzwarth (Rhapsody), Felix Bohnke (Edguy), producer Sascha Paeth (ex-Heavens Gate) and Ralf Zdiarstek (Amitaf). More will be confirmed here at www.tobiassammet.com as soon as possible.
