It’s full steam ahead for former Skid Row singer, Sebastian Bach, who is pressing forward with his solo career. The singer is currently cutting demos in line with his next solo studio album. Word on the street is that Bach worked on one of the demos with Rob Zombie guitarist John 5, and is quite pleased with the progress being made so far.
Bach is hoping “to capture a cool vibe, and I think that really involves live drummers playing — not just a drum machine, which seems to be too pervasive today in music,” he said.
“My tastes have changed a bit since my doctor told me that if I wanna keep my hearing in great shape, I have to turn the music down sometimes. He told me this a couple of years back. And since he told me that, I’ve taken his advice and I don’t crank my music as loud as it will go anymore, and that’s all I can tell you. So I’ve gotta make a record that I like. So I don’t think it’s gonna be a death metal record; I think it’s gonna be more uplifting and fun. And also real people playing real music — that’s very important to me.”
“Some people always want me to reunite with the old band, but think of it this way — I get to make records with John 5. So that’s pretty amazing,” he added.
“The thing is that my records, mostly, have had a lot of aggression in them, and I’m not feeling aggressive right now. So I’m not gonna pretend to channel some anger that’s not real. But, you know, there’s things that I am angry at, like the climate being destroyed — I’m angry at that. And the first song that I just recorded has lyrics kind of to do with that. But people like my ballad voice; that’s, really, at the end of the day, what people like to hear me sing like. And I like that too, and that’s the way I’m feeling right now, so that’s the [way the] music [is] coming out — it’s got a lot of harmonies, and the vocals sound great, and that’s what I’m gonna give you in your ears… It’s gonna be focused on the vocals, harmonies, but it’s gonna sound like me, ’cause that’s all I can sound like.”
