Former ANTHRAX Guitarist DAN SPITZ Joins VOICES OF EXTREME - "Recording Has Already Started"
January 2, 2016, a year ago
New York-based hard rockers Voices Of Extreme have posted the following announcement:
"Starting in 2016, legendary lead guitarist Dan Spitz - co-writer and co-producer of some of the most monumental music of our time / Anthrax - will be a permanent member of Voices Of Extreme. Recording has already commenced, and worldwide live shows, video’s and more lie ahead. The creator has returned. Round 2 has begun.
In addition to Dan Spitz entering as permanence, alongside his long time collaborator Don Chaffin on vocals (Red Lamb), we are proud to announce Steve Nichols (Solitude Aeturnus, GodFear) on drums and percussion. Let us also welcome Steven G Knight on thunderous bass from skin to string (Roulette, Outcast). A staple of the Texas music scene, and so much more."
Dan Spitz has issued the following statement:
"As the new year chimes in much of what’s been behind the scenes will start to emerge as to my decision to play my electric guitar, as well as my Tri-Cone resonators and Weissenborn lap slide guitars, on a full time basis.
First to emerge is the announcement of myself joining the band Voices Of Extreme. Recording has already started for a 6-song EP, behind-the-scenes video will start to emerge shortly. We will embark on global live show’s thereafter. This powerful and crushing quartet is reminiscent of nothing before, but does fall into the realm of Stone Sour, Shinedown meets Soundgarden with a slamming riff master twisting it to a completely new level of new guitar tones, sounds, tapestries and emotional rides. I pray it brings much love to all.
There will be more announcements regarding other Christian movements and projects I am entering into forthcoming that will certainly impact the world once again, and those involved with me are certainly a loving force of historical and legendary proportion."
