If you haven’t heard of the Nashville metal underground’s best kept secret VOODOO PROPHET yet, get ready. The five-piece metal act hailing from Music City, USA is set to begin tracking drums and bass for its sophomore EP, tentatively titled The Flood, this June with legendary Zing Recording Studios in Westfield, MA.
Guitarist Myk Ricci will produce The Flood EP, with engineering from veteran engineer/producer Jim “The Anvil” Fogarty (Killswitch Engage). Zing’s client list includes other bands such as All That Remains, The Devil Wears Prada, Shadows Fall, and many more top selling metal artists. Guitars and vocals for the EP will be tracked back in the band’s local area of Nashville. The Flood EP promises to be the band’s best release to date, chocked full of memorable riffs, catchy hooks and brutal grooves.
The band is running a pre-order for The Flood EP offer at www.voodooprophet.com/preorder. Pre-ordering the new EP will help offset the costs of the recording process, as well as, get you a copy of the EP before its release date later this year!
“Going into this recording, we contacted a lot of different producers and studios about the EP. We actually started pre-production with one really well known, multi-platinum producer, but after we started digging into the songs it became apparent that our musical style didn’t fit his production style. So we started making calls and appointments again and finally decided, let’s just do it ourselves,” states guitarist/producer Myk Ricci. “I co-produced alongside Eric Arena on our last EP and the guys feel that I can lead us into battle this time. The trade-off is that we get to make the fans happy by playing the music they want to hear without having pressure from an A&R team. We had a great time recording at Zing last time and are really looking forward to going back in June to track.”
Similarly, VOODOO PROPHET recorded its debut EP Human? at Zing in 2012 under the tutelage of seasoned producer/engineer Eric Arena (A Day to Remember) with former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch) handling mastering duties. Human? made a big splash for the band, landing VOODOO PROPHET on numerous opening slots for bands such as Trivium, Sevendust, Hellyeah, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, GWAR, Falling in Reverse, Straight Line Stitch, and Fight or Flight. The EP also caught the attention of Sirius XM Program Director Jose Mangin, gaining VOODOO PROPHET regular spins on Sirius XM Liquid Metal.
VOODOO PROPHET attributes its steady momentum to hard work, determination and the support of fans, friends, and family. In addition, the band appreciates support from companies like Seymour Duncan Pick Ups, Ethan Hart Guitars, Splawn Amplification, BBE Sound, ISP Technologies, Pedaltrain, Clayton USA, Bosphorus Cymbals, Franklin Strap Co., George L’s Cables and Bestincase Road Cases.
