DAN LORENZO DOCUMENTARY ON IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RIFF
Dan Lorenzo has been a friend of Talking Metal for years. He was part of the two Screaming Metal shows which featured Mark, and John along with Vessel Of Light’s Ron Lipnicki, and a few other musicians covering a slew of great tracks. Dan recently let us know that he and Vessel Of Light are working on album number four. He’s always a great story teller, as was evident during his recent guest spot on Talking Metal Live.
We were just sent word that It’s All About The Riff has put a documentary together about Dan. Here is the information that was sent to us:
Back in early March, Vessel of Light played three shows in NY/NJ. Jason Stewart did a video interview with our singer Nathan Opposition. Nathan commented that he’d be flying back to NJ in June to do a five day run with Vessel of Light. We were supposed to be playing at the Maryland Doom Fest plus four other shows last week. Before the corona-virus shutdown we had plans to release our 4th album in 2021.
A few days after our last show in March Jason Stewart came to my house to film a lengthy interview with me, guitar in hand. I discussed my times with Hades, Non-Fiction and The Cursed with Bobby Blitz.
Due to the stay-at-home orders we are way ahead with out next record. I wrote and recorded my guitar parts to sixteen new songs and drummer Ron Lipnicki has tracked fourteen of those. I told Ron to “go off” on this record and I doubt many drummers could pull off the intricate rhythms Ron has laid down. Jimmy Schulman and Nathan will be tracking their parts in July and August so we could have a new single out in September and a brand new full length album/CD in late September or October. A California label Nomad Eel Records will be releasing the CD first and then vinyl in early 2021.
Now, I mentioned Ron recorded some complicated drum tracks for our new album. My riffs are still very simple. Pretty much anybody who has played guitar for a few months could probably play most of these songs. For some reason Jason has chosen me to debut his new video series It’s All About The Riff. Jason has spent countless hours these last three months editing my (musical) life story. It airs live tonight at 7PM EST
