Get Heavy and Bluesy with Ultraphonix (feat. Corey Glover, George Lynch)
Living Colour released the absolutely fantastic album Shade last year, and George Lynch put out both a Lynch Mob record and one with KXM (his project with Dug Pinnick and Ray Luzier), but that hasn’t stopped the former’s vocalist Corey Glover from collaborating with Lynch on an entirely new project, Ultraphonix, set to release their debut album next month.
Ultraphonix play more or less the blend of metal, hard rock, blues and R&B you’d expect given the cast of characters involved, which also includes drummer Chris Moore (Project NfidelikAh) and Pancho Tomaselli (War, Philm) on bass, but that’s certainly not a bad thing. As you’ll hear in the two songs released so far — “Walk Run Crawl” and “Another Day,” both embedded below — the band’s music truly runs the gamut of all of those influences, something we can fully get behind as huge fans of these musicians’ bodies of work.
“It’s a hybrid cross between heavy metal, jazz, and progressive. At his core, Corey is a bluesy, gospel R&B singer. At my core, I’m a blues guitarist. I have residual influences from deep R&B. That’s where we identify. Those roots run parallel, but nobody ever came out and said it. We didn’t need to. The four of us just got in a room and jammed. We did exactly what we wanted.”
The band’s debut album, Original Human Music, comes out on August 3rd, 2018, and is available for pre-order here.
