Renowned guitar wizard Chris Impellitteri’s has revealed a shredding cover of a theatrical classic, “Phantom Of The Opera”, via a brand new music video directed by John Logsdon, also recognized for producing music videos for the likes of Eric Clapton, Def Leppard, and many other notable artists. Editing duties were managed by Patrick Dwyer.
Chris Impellitteri jests, “It’s great to have both the legendary actor Lon Chaney (the Phantom) and Mary Philbin (Christine) join our band for this song and video, they are amazing actors!” He adds,”On another amusing note, our singer Rob Rock wanted to kill us for making him wear the mask in the video… but in the end he manned up and put it on to celebrate the Phantom’s story and theme, even though he knows the internet trolls are going to ridicule him… ha! Rock is such a fantastic singer to work with, a real team player!”
Impellitteri’s blazing cover of “Phantom Of The Opera” can be heard on the band’s latest album, entitled The Nature Of The Beast, released via Frontiers Music srl (North America and Europe) and JVC Victor (Japan). The Nature Of The Beast was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with legendary engineer/producer Mike Plotnikoff (Van Halen, Aerosmith, In Flames), mix engineer Greg Reely (Overkill, Fear Factory), and engineers Jun Murakawa and Sean Shannon. The band recorded the album at NRG studios and IMP studios.
