NILE drummer George Kollias is at 9800 Studios in Athens, Greece with with engineer Antonis Kontozoglou putting the finishing touches on the pre-production for his upcoming solo album. Kollias is scheduled to begin laying down drums for the CD on July 15. He says: “[I am] really happy with the songs so far.”
A new video update from the studio can be seen below.
Kollias’ solo album is primarily set to show off some of George’s craziest metal drumming to date, is being completely written and recorded by George, including the guitars, bass, keys, vocals, and percussion. It will also feature a DVD of the recording process.
Hudson Music last year released George’s “Intense Metal Drumming II” instructional DVD.
Produced independently by Kollias, and appearing on the Hudson Ltd.label, this brand-new two-disc set comes four years after George’s first instructional DVD release. Since then, Kollias has become known as an international authority on extreme metal drumming, and this DVD is a must-have for anyone interested in this topic.
