Guitarists CHRIS AMOTT And ANDY JAMES Confirmed As Guests On New BLOODSHOT DAWN Album

Thursday, 10th April 2014

UK melodic extreme metallers BLOODSHOT DAWN have announced more guests that are set to appear on their as of yet unrecorded second album. The announcements are Andy James and Chris Amott, two very highly accomplished guitarists.

Andy James is a globally renowned metal and shred guitarist known for incredible playing and versatility with his instrument. He has featured on DVDs released with leading companies such as Licklibrary and Jamtrax as well as having released several solo records and two successful albums with SACRED MOTHER TONGUE. Andy is also known for having appeared on stages all across the world not just with Sacred Mother Tongue but with bands such as CRADLE OF FILTH, THE FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM and as a solo artist at industry shows such as NAMM in Los Angeles and the Frankfurt Messe.

Chris Amott needs little introduction, the Swedish shredder is most notably known as a founding member of melodic death metal titans ARCH ENEMY. Chris left Arch Enemy in 2012 to pursue his solo career and went on to release Follow Your Heart. He also founded ARMAGEDDON, releasing three successful albums and after relocating to the US he has announced that a brand new Armageddon record is in the making.

As previously reported, Sven De Caluwé from Belgian death metal band ABORTED will be weighing in with vocals, Swedish guitar maestro Per Nilsson of SCAR SYMMETRY and WINTERSUN’s Teemu Mäntysaari will also be adding pieces to the forthcoming album.

The band announced recently that album number two would be a crowd-funded project that will launch on April 16th. Bloodshot Dawn have since then started releasing a series of videos on the build up to the launch offering sneak previews of the new album content including artwork and music.
