The latest confirmed guest to work on the Death/Chuck Schuldine tribute project "Within The Mind" is Luc Lemay of Gorguts. That brings the total new additions to 4 in as many days. Luc joins other recent additions Richard Christy (Iced Earth, Ex-Death, Control Denied), Patrick Mameli (Ex-Pestilence) and Jean-Francois Dagenais (Kataklysm).
Tonight Richard Christy (Death, Control Denied, Iced Earth, Burning Inside) confirmed his appearance on the Within The Mind project. Richard will play on a total of 4 tracks which originate on the Human and Individual Thought Patterns albums. He will spend the next week or so refreshing his memory and sharpening his chops on those songs and then will be joined by James Murphy at his Orlando warehouse the following weekend for some intense rehearsals after which they'll enter a local Orlando studio (ARS is the most likely choice) and lay down his tracks. Richard's tracks will be the first to be recorded for the project. Soon after, James will begin rehearsals with Dave Culross and he will record the majority of the remaining drum tracks.
Also noteworthy: at last night's Opeth concert in Tampa drummer Martin Lopez expressed his interest in playing at least one track on the Within The Mind project.
