Mili Note: I reviewed this band a few months ago. They ROCK. I’m grabbing up this new stuff now.
ICED EARTH brainchild, Jon Schaffer, has developed a new project, SONS OF LIBERTY, for the purpose of spreading awareness about the current state of affairs worldwide. Schaffer’s goal for this project is not to sell records, t-shirts, or tickets, but rather wake people up and to get them to start researching and talking with each other. SONS OF LIBERTY: Brush-Fires of The Mind was released in the US on July 13th and is available to you now! Schaffer has also setup a very informative resource website www.sons-of-liberty.net as a think-tank containing lots of interesting web-links, book and movie recommendations, and much more.
Check out the new video at the link below where Schaffer discusses the concept behind the song “Jeckyll Island”, and the book it’s based on – a core principle to the topics covered in the band’s lyrical content. Also, catch a special interview with Schaffer and G. Edward Griffin (author of The Creature From Jekyll Island).
Also check out Metal Sucks now to stream the track “Jeckyll Island.”
Schaffer handles all vocals and instrumentation for SONS OF LIBERTY, but the effort also features guest solos by legendary producer Jim Morris, ICED EARTH guitarist Troy Seele, and world-class bassist, Ruben Drake.
Born from Schaffer’s desire to stimulate curiosity about a pattern of global banking corruption that is undermining the independence of people and their countries, SONS OF LIBERTY aims to spearhead a multi-faceted and peaceful resistance of the tyranny being wrought every day on regular people.
