SHADOWS FALL’s Matt Bachand To Handle Bass Duties In Broderick/Drover ProjectMonday, 26th January 2015
The new, as-yet-named band featuring former MEGADETH members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar), alongside ex-SCAR THE MARTYR singer Henry Derek Bonner, has tapped SHADOWS FALL guitarist Matt Bachand (pictured) as its bass player. The new group is scheduled to begin recording its debut CD this coming weekend at a studio in Hartford, Connecticut for a tentative late 2015 release via an as-yet-undisclosed record label.
Says Drover: “I have known Matt for 15 years now and he is a great musician, songwriter, singer and all around GREAT person. To say I’m jacked up about having Matt with us is an understatement!
“All the songs have shaped up nicely and there is a lot of metal dynamics on these songs, overall. Some of them are flat-out thrash-speed metal, others are uptempo, but I can assure you it is all 100% HEAVY METAL. Those who know me know I have always been an advocate for the more aggressive metal stuff, so if you’re expecting anything to the contrary on this record, you would be dead wrong.
“Anyways, Matt Bachand will be in the studio with me [in Hartford], as he lives not too far from the studio, as does the producer/engineer who will be recording drum tracks with me.
“As I write this I cannot reveal WHO he is yet, nor the record company we are signing with, etc. That’s for the press release, which you will all see very soon. Believe me, this dude is a full on METAL PRODUCER/ENGINEER (I would never have anybody but that to do this kind of music).”
