Mnemic Collaborate With Guitarist/Producer Roy Z

Danish modern metallers MNEMIC have recently employed the writing talents of guitarist/producer Roy Z. for one song that will surface on MNEMIC's upcoming album, due out in early 2007. The talented and heralded guitarist and songwriter for TRIBE OF GYPSIES, as well as producer of such recent metal classics as BRUCE DICKINSON's "Chemical Wedding", HALFORD's "Resurrection" and JUDAS PRIEST's "Angel of Retribution", Z. collaborated on guitar recently with MNEMIC as the band prepare to start recording their untitled third album for Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented the band: "The track has turned out really good. You can hear the heavy mixture of Roy's along with the MNEMIC style.

"We've been a fan of Roy's work since first hearing his production on the DICKINSON and HALFORD albums, he always comes out when we are playing in L.A. and is a good friend of the band. We've actually never collaborated with other musicians before when it came to composing songs, so we thought we could combine some of his heavy grove with some of our polyrhythmics and make a song."

MNEMIC are in the final stages of selecting a new vocalist, the spot vacating recently by Tony Jelencovich (ex-TRANSPORT LEAGUE, B-THONG) after only several months in the frontman role. MNEMIC have "pretty much decided who it's going to be, but we need to concentrate on getting the recording going for this next album before announcing anything," explains guitarist Mircea Eftemie. "The song with Roy should be a great addition to the songs that we've had ready to go for a while now, we can't wait to get busy!"

I hope they find a good vocalist. It would be a shame to see this band go the way of many others because of vocalist problems. Mnemic's first couple albums are awesome, can't wait to hear some new material.
