New Studio Recording: Tommy Icarus by The Black Monolith

Here ya go, folks…A new, hot one fresh from the Rock n Roll oven. This is personally one of my favourite tracks to record my drums on and I really like the results. It’s also a song I can connect with deeply on a lyrical level, thanks to the simple yet moving lyrics by lead singer, Zed Tan.

The Black Monolith will be rolling out it’s debut album in April this year. Be sure to watch this space for updates! It’s been a very nice experience working with these guys, and here’s to more.

Enjoy and ROCK ON!

New Studio Recording Project: The Black Monolith (Hard Rock The Old School Way..)

Hi all,

I hope your week is going well so far. 

Just to update all the good folks who have stopped by to check out my website that I have a new recording project coming and songwriting sessions are underway. This project will tap on my roots as a drummer/musician – straight-ahead Hard Rock. If you like your Rock the way Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Queen, and some of the best 80’s Glam bands like Motley Crue did it, then be sure to look out for this band.

The Black Monolith, as the band is called, and I am not sure if that is the confirmed name, will comprise Damien Ng on lead guitars and he is the principal songwriter, a bassist, a lead vocalist, and yours truly on drums and throwing in my 5 cents worth to the arrangements. I have to say that I really enjoy the stuff that Damien writes – he knows his roots as a Rock musician and he can write great riffs that evoke the vibe of all the classic Rock groups both of us grew up listening to. 

We plan to hit the recording studio in June and may also go out on the road to bring the spirit of old school Hard Rock to the masses the best way we know. This is certainly a perfect time for me to bring back my heavy-hitting chops after more than a year of playing with a lighter touch and restraint on volume, which is also an area of drumming skill I am proud to have improved on and I still work on it.

Stay tuned for more upates!
