Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate is thrilled to announce the release of the second album from his SWEET OBLIVION project, “Relentless“, on April 9th via Frontiers Music Srl. “Another Change” has been released, so give it a listen and check out the music video below!
“Relentless” is produced by Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere, Archon Angel, Timo Tolkii’s Avalon).
Conceived, overseen, and A&R’ed by Serafino Perugino, President and A&R director of Frontiers Records, the project sees Geoff Tate returning to a musical style he is revered for. The self-titled debut album caused quite a stir in the international hard rock and metal scene since it brought Tate back to a musical landscape akin to the sound of the stone cold classic metal albums he released with QUEENSRŸCHE during the ‘80s. But what made the album work so well was that instead of being a simple throwback, other different musical influences were thrown into the mix, allowing fans to hear Tate in a simultaneously familiar and new musical setting.
While the production and main songwriting on the previous record were handled by Simone Mularoni of DGM, this time the production was instead handled by his fellow Italian metal maestro Aldo Lonobile (Secret Sphere, Timo Tolkki’s Avalon, Archon Angel).
Not only does Aldo have producution and songwriting credits on the album, he also features on guitar. Other musicians appearing on the album include Michele Sanna on drums, Luigi Andreone on bass, and Antonio Agate on keyboards.
Geoff Tate comments: “I have been spending more and more time in Italy over the last few years and the people and culture have captured my heart. I truly enjoyed working with my Italian counterparts to create this classic metal album“.
