GREYSTONE CANYON Streaming New Song "Astral Plane"
February 12, 2018, a year ago
Australia's Greystone Canyon are streaming the new song "Astral Plane", featured on their upcoming debut album, While The Wheels Still Turn, out on March 9th in Europe and North American through Rockshots Records, and via Hellfire Records in Australia on March 12th.
The band comments: "There are a number of different topics, which I believe will be interpreted by anyone digging the album. 'Astral Plane' is about staying connected to our friends and family after they have passed into the afterlife. I think it gives people comfort to think about those they have lost and that we are in some way still connected. Musically, this song crashes in with a Deep Purple meets Megadeth vibe. Huge drum rolls and ripping guitars. This is 70's rock meets speed metal. The riffs are HUGE, the drums are HUGE, shredding solos and a big chorus. We hope this track will leave the listener wanting to hear more."
Listen to the track below.
While The Wheels Still Turn was tracked at the splendidly named Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia, and then mixed in Canada, making ‘the album a real rock n’ roll frequent flyer. Mixing duties were undertaken by none other than Grammy nominated producer Glen Robinson, who had engineered, mixed and produced legendary acts like Annihilator, Queensrÿche, and Voivod.
Inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth and King Diamond, While The Wheels Still Turn is an album that could not only sit well beside the works of those legends, but with the current tsunami of all things 70s and 80s inspired, Greystone Canyon are in the right place at the right time. We are travelling back to the future and they are the soundtrack.
As vocalist/guitarist Darren Cherry proudly states, “We really wanted to make an album similar to an old Ozzy Osbourne record where songs like ‘I Don't Know’ and ‘Goodbye To Romance’ can sit comfortably together. This is music from the heart and soul!”
