BEYOND TWILIGHT Mainman Joins Forces With SCAR SYMMETRY, HALFORD Members In ZIERLER PROJECTS
After six years of absolute silence, BEYOND TWILIGHT mastermind Finn Zierler has returned from the shadows with ZIERLER PROJECTS.
ZIERLER PROJECTS is a progressive metal supergroup consisting of:
* Finn Zierler (BEYOND TWILIGHT) - Keyboards
* Bobby Jarzombek (HALFORD, FATES WARNING, ARCH/MATHEOS, SEBASTIAN BACH, ICED EARTH) - Drums
* Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY, KAIPA) – Guitar, Bass
* Kelly Sundown Carpenter (BEYOND TWILIGHT, DARKOLOGY, EPYSODE, OUTWORLD) - Vocals
* Truls Haugen (INSENSE, CIRCUS MAXIMUS) - Vocals, Bass
ZIERLER PROJECTS was a closely guarded secret until the first matrix's formation was announced earlier today.
Zierler said, "I've had the idea in mind for some time now. All the guys in the matrix are amongst my personal favorites and have been it for years. As with any 'supergroup,' bringing together the best talent doesn't mean things will work out. However, in this case, it did. It's an absolute pleasure to work with each one of these great musicians — on every level."
Zierler describes the music: "It's a journey through my musical moods, sometimes brutal, nightmarishly technical, crushingly dark and very progressive. The performances on this album are simply inhuman, just a smashing and fantastic job by everyone involved."
A ZIERLER PROJECTS track titled "A New Beginning", taken from the band's forthcoming album, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
