August 25, 2014, 4 years ago
John 5’s new release, Careful With That Axe, available now on 60 Cycle Hum Records, has charted at #50 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. Released digitally on August 12th, Careful With That Axe is John 5's eighth solo album and features drummer Rodger Carter and bassist Matt Bissonette.
Recorded at The Doghouse Studios in Los Angeles, California in between tour legs, Careful With That Axe was produced by John 5, along with drummer, Rodger Carter, and illustrates his musical growth and talents as a guitar player and composer. Carter and Bissonette are in perfect sync, masterfully laying down the musical dreamscape with technical precision. Packed with rapid-fire, machine-gun riffs and musical crescendos, all intertwined with blistering-fast six-string assaults and an eerie sense of melody, John 5 leads you on a macabre journey through the twisted minds of a different brand of axe wielders. With compositions such as "Portrait Of Sidney Sloan", "The Dream Slayer" and "Flight Of The Vulcan Kelly", drawing you in with lightning-fast leads, completely redefining the term "shredding."
