All Shall Perish’s new guitarist Francesco Artusato has completed work on his new, all instrumental solo endeavor entitled "Chaos and The Primordial." Artusato has launched a new MySpace page to promote this solo release, which features several samples from the new album.

Artusato checks in with the following comments: "I just got back from my first tour with All Shall Perish playing four great shows as direct support for the legendary Danzig. It was such an amazing and mind blowing experience! We will be back on the road starting this weekend for the Summer Slaughter North American tour and will then head out to Europe after that. It’s going to be great.

"This is also an exciting moment for me because my first solo record Chaos and the Primordial is finally finished. It’s 10 tracks of all instrumental music that explore the rock/metal language in singular ways. I’m very proud of the final product. It sounds the way I envisioned it thanks to Ben Cohen, who mixed and mastered it at Sky Blue Studios. It took a lot of patience and attention due to the crazy amount of recorded guitar tracks (doubles, harmonies and different layers and textures). Some of the songs have more 25 guitar tracks each! This disc is the result of the experiences, studies, thoughts and musical moments that shaped my sound and vision throughout these years.

"The first sample is taken from the1st track titled ‘Chaos and the Primordial.’ Overall, it’s a very technical and intense song that has a progressive vibe with some very open and lyrical parts mixed with very powerful moments of intensity and complexity.

"The second sample is taken from the 3rd track titled ‘Typhoeus’ and this song combines some of the most challenging riffs and phrases that I’ve ever written. The intricacy of the parts and its wild and forceful nature are what make this song comparable to a typhoon: uncontainable and feral!

"The third sample is taken from the 6th track titled ‘The Metamorphosis,’ which is probably the most experimental and unconventional sounding song of the album. The song is distinguished by crazy time signatures, peculiar sounding lines and phrases and a constant mutating form that makes the song evolve and devolve within itself.

"I hope you enjoy the music and thanks for listening. Stay tuned for news, more samples, lessons and release date to follow in the coming weeks and be sure to come up and say hello if you make it out to the Summer Slaughter tour.”
