Description

The beginings of this recording project have deep roots in Mentors history. The drummer who plays on all tracks, Marc Mad Dog DeLeon used to book the Mentors in his hometown of Bakersfield California back in the 1990s when he was a teenager. In 2008 I reestablished a connection with him as a result of his work with his band, the Mantors. The lead guitarist, Honey Davis, recorded and engineered our Mentors Album 'Rock Bible' also in the 1990s at his Catshit Studio in Hollywood, CA. His blazing slide guitar work can be heard loud and clear on this recording. The vocalist, Hammergirl, who sings with alone and with me on all of the songs on the album, was for years the merchandize chick of the legendary Dutch Heavy Metal band Hammerhawk, and the niece of their lead guitarist, Paul Van Risjwick. Two years ago, she discovered her singing voice, and started to collaborate with me on songs several times a year on my trips to Holland at Paul's stu dio. As we made up more songs, I came more and more to realize she was my muse, and I could express myself in a different way through the female voice. Rest assured Mentors fans, the addition of a female lead singer to the Mentors ouvere does not water down the concept! On the contrary. In summer of 2008 Helen, Marc and I recorded three of the tracks on this CD, in Bakersfield at B2=2 0studio. Based on the success of this session, we decided to record an entire CDs worth of songs. Having never written for a female voice to this extent, this seemed an exciting challenge to take on.. Specifically, in 2008 Winter I laid down with Marc guitar, bass and drums tracks at B2 studio in Bakersfield as well as Mentors producer Bill Metoyer's studio in Northridge 0A These basic tracks were then given to B2 studio Engineer Sharon Marie, in order to layer Hammond Organ and other keyboards. Sharon's keyboard skills are worldclass, and she along with Helen give a strong female stamp to the Mentors kind of rock on this re
