17:53 - Apothecary Way too short, vocals are too buried in the mix, and some of the nonmetal instruments I wish they'd kept from M&D aren't really there anymore... it sounds more similar to the White albums though, so Joe, you might cream your pants
17:52 - Apothecary Well, the new Sunn O))).... with these guys one really needs a good number of solid playthroughs to make a firm decision, but so far I'm really not overly impressed by this tbh
Joe Satriani has released the cover artwork of his upcoming album Unstoppable Momentum along with the tracklist as well, which are available for viewing below. Satriani plans to release the new album on May 7th through Epic Records.
The album was recorded at Skywalker Sound in the Bay Area and produced by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC). It features Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction) on bass and on keyboards Mike Keneally (Dethklok). You can pre-order the album over here.
The albums' 11 songs are "heading in different directions and touching on a variety of musical influences," Satriani said. "The idea was to crank up the energy level of the sessions and allow for more individual expression of the material from each player. The chemistry with Mike, Chris and Vinnie was fantastic and we blazed through all of the tracks with everyone laying down amazing performances."
