Attila Csihar (MAYHEM, TORMENTOR, VOID OV VOICES) and New York City guitarist Dennis Deen recently spent time in Oslo collaborating on a new project which Attila has described as “a cross between old TORMENTOR, SKINNY PUPPY and BIOHAZARD.”
“For me, I hear and see a mix of ‘Diary Of A Madman’ [OZZY OSBOURNE] and ‘Antichrist Superstar’ [MARILYN MANSON] in the project being that I’m very influenced by Randy Rhoads,” Deen tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET.
He adds, “The new show and record is full of kick-ass guitar riffs. The show will literally scare the fuck out of you. It’s a heavy sound; very negative, dark stuff here [with] a little VOID OV VOICESthrown in. I literally dug out my blackest of demons from my soul to create this. A lot of pain went into my guitar sound.
“I cannot really say much more other than we are looking for a bassist and drummer to do the tour. The studio lineup and details are coming.”
Performing since 1986 when he co-founded cult-metal band TORMENTOR, Attila is best known for his contribution to MAYHEM’s “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” album in 1993, a milestone for the black metal genre. Csihar is, or has been, a member of various groups such as PLASMA POOL, ABORYM, and KOROG. He has also done guest vocals (and toured) with SUNN O))), BURIAL CHAMBER TRIO and GRAVETEMPLE.
