The first in a series of weekly video blogs from HYDROGYN members Julie Westlake (vocals), Jeff Westlake (guitar) and Jeff Young (guitar; ex-MEGADETH) regarding the progress of the songwriting/recording sessions for the band's new album, "Judgement", can be viewed below.
The latest addition to HYDROGYN, Jeff Young brings his renowned shredding virtuosity, as evident on the classic and fan favorite MEGADETH album "So Far, So Good… So What!" (Capitol Records, 1988). Jeff joins Julie, Jeff Westlake and New York-based KHZ drummer Joe Migz. Together, they plan to take HYDROGYN on a full-on global assault in 2010.
Sharing bass tracks on the album will be fretless six-string bass wonder Jake Wolf and surprise new addition, powerhouse bassist James Lomenzo, best known for his acclaimed work in WHITE LION, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and, most recently, MEGADETH. James will be making an appearance on a few selected songs, and is currently laying down bass tracks for the first single, "The Right Thing Now".
HYDROGYN is in the midst of tracking and writing for the self-produced album with the aim for a summer release. The first single, "The Right Thing Now", will be mixed with famed producer Michael Wagener (SKID ROW, METALLICA, EXTREME) during the last week of April.
