March 6, 2022, a year ago
Guesting on Tone-Talk, Pantera bassist Rex Brown revealed he has been working with Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner, and that they have in fact completed an album together.
Brown: "Richie and I have become really good friends, and it's really progressively heavy and cool. Richie is a very melodic player, and then it's got my drummer that played on my first solo record. They tracked him playing on one of those electronic kits, and they sampled the sounds into a real kit, which I'm not too crazy about. That's not the way I would do it, but it's Richie's record. And he's got a new singer now. I don't know when that's coming out. That was a real thrill."
Back in February, Faulkner confirned duringhis appearance on In The Trenches With Ryan Roxie that he has been working on a solo album.
Faulkner: "There is something I've kind of been putting together during the COVID period. I know we're still going through it but there's been a lot of downtime, so I've used that time to kind of get some songs I've been working on, get them together, polish them up, get some people together that I respect in the music business and record some stuff. As far as stylistically, it's always hard to tell, really. You just do what you do. You can hear where the roots are, from Priest, but I think it's different enough to be its own monster. And then hopefully someone else interprets it in their own way and hears something completely different to what I hear."
