This is an amazing new release that just came out on January 1, 2017 and this thing rocks.
The debut solo album from Holy Soldier guitarist Michael Cutting and this thing has been 5+ years in the making and it shows. Excellent songs from the lyrics and song writing to the recorded vocals and all the instruments this thing smokes. Featuring none other then David Zaffiro producing the vocals and engineering this release, and even contributing vocals to the tracks 'Leave it Behind' and 'Karma'.
From the opening track 'Table for One' with its very Alice in Chains like stylings to the ballady 'Leave it Behind' and 'Never Forget' and everything in between you get a little bit of everything here.
Michael truly put his heart on his sleeve as he shared this masterpiece with the world. Styles ranging from rock to hard rock to metal, I even hear his Pink Floyd influences coming through as well as some Beatles influence in some of the tracks making this a very eclectic release sure to appeal to the tastes of hard rockers and Holy Soldier fans a like.
CD pressing comes packaged in a beautiful high gloss digi-pack format with an extended 24 page fold out booklet with one side having all the lyrics and credits and the other opening into a full size poster portrait of Michael.
