February 5 : WARRIOR (Vinnie Vincent 1982) 2CD Expanded Edition
From : Cherry Red Records
Cherry Red Records (UK) have scheduled a second
WARRIOR 1982 album recordings for an official release date March 22, 2019, entitled "WARRIOR - II" 2CD Expanded Edition.

WARRIOR 1982 (2CD Expanded Edition official release 2019)The WARRIOR story goes back to 1982 when New England members Jimmy Waldo on keyboards, bassist Gary Shea and drummer Hirsch Gardner were searching for a replacement for recently departed guitarist, John Fannon. A then unknown guitarist Vinnie Cusano was recommended by KISS’s Gene Simmons (both bands were represented at the time by manager Bill Aucoin). Cusano was a prolific songwriter, and sent some of his song ideas to the Boston based NEW ENGLAND for consideration. So impressed was the trio with Cusano’s song-writing abilities that they agreed to relocate to Los Angeles where the guitarist was based, and the band WARRIOR was born.

Recording began at the famed Record Plant with serious interest from CBS Records, but the band were also diligent enough to record demos and rough ideas on a more modest set-up, capturing the fledgling band on cassette.

Unfortunately for WARRIOR, Vincent Cusano’s talents meant that the guitarist was snapped up by KISS in 1982 to replace Ace Frehley for their “Creatures Of The Night” LP, their last in make-up, where he’d be rechristened Vinnie Vincent.

Those precious WARRIOR recordings gathered dust until HNE released a collection of them in 2017. Subsequently, more tapes, some of significantly better quality, have been unearthed from Gary Shea’s personal archive. Also included are a number of the demos transferred from the above mentioned cassettes.

Shea and Waldo would remain in Los Angeles, soon joining up with Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet to form Alcatrazz with Yngwie J. Malmsteen.

This 2CD set is a treasure trove for all those who loved the power, quality and sheer momentum of the first “WARRIOR” album, “Warrior II” adds to the band’s legacy and legend.

Carmine Appice :
“The Guitar Zeus project, for me, was an amazing experience that has never been done before by a drummer, especially with so much talent on one album! You get your money’s worth! Writing all the songs with my band (Tony & Kelly) and then picking out songs for each guitarist was a fun and time-consuming process, especially coordinating everybody’s schedules and recording sessions.
From the opening note, one can tell this is going to be something special. I consider these drum tracks to be some of the best performances in my career, topped off with working with so many great guitarists and singers. The combination of players and song selection is something special with some of the tunes is out of the ordinary and ahead of their time!”

NOTE : The 2019 12 track 1CD version and the vinyl album version of "Guitar Zeus" does not include the song "
Snake" featuring Bruce Kulick.
