Some interesting albums (well to me anyway) to be released in 2007.
Soulsavers – "It’s Not How Far You Fall, It's The Way You Land"
with Mark Lanegan on vocals
Massive Attack – "Weather Underground"
with guest vocalist Mike Patton
John Zorn – "Six Laitanies for Heliogabalus"
with Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn & Joey Baron
Info from www.tzadik.com:
The infamous Moonchild/Astronome Trio of Patton, Dunn and Baron
returns to the studio this time aided by the searing organ of Jamie
Saft, the complex electronics of Ikue Mori and a small female chorus
to realize Zorn’s latest project Six Litanies for Heliogabalus. Inspired
by the decadent excesses of the Roman emperor/child-god who made
Caligula and Nero look like reasonable human beings—smothering his
dinner guests to death in a rain of perfumed rose petals—these six
compositions (including an outrageous new piece for solo voice)
explode with color, imagery and intensity. A startling blend of Metal,
Contemporary Classical, Jazz and Mediaeval Music, this is one of
Zorn's most extreme and original creations.
"The Gutter Twins"
Mark Lanegan & Greg Dulli
