So I got a message from Hoagy (lead vox, Crusader) asking if some of us would or could do a guest vocal track for their new album. I was totally down, pending my own schedule, Matt Wolf from Skull Fogger was going, and Justin from Something Beautiful was good to go. Unfortunately, Eric, our drummer was out of town on family business, so he couldn’t make it.
One of the perks of most of your fans being in other bands and knowing how to sing metal is that you get to do stuff like this for them, and you can trade shows, book fun events together, and in general, support each others’ creativity. While we were mixing Something Beautiful‘s Lay Down (Songs About Angels) we had a bunch of our friends come in and yell for us. Really is a great way to spend time with your friends, I think.
Since Crusader was working on several of the tracks for their upcoming release, I didn’t stick around too long, but it really was nice to hang out for a bit outside the confines of a noisy club. Their new material sounds KILLER, and it’s shaping up to be a sick record that these guys can definitely be proud of.
