U.S. thrash/heavy metal veterans TOURNIQUET have released a lyric video for the single "Sinister Scherzo". The track, which features guest appearances by former JUDAS PRIEST and ICED EARTH singer Tim "Ripper" Owens and ex-MEGADETH guitarist Chris Poland, is taken from the band's forthcoming album, "Gazing At Medusa", which is due mid-October via TOURNIQUET's own label, Pathogenic Records.
Drummer and songwriter Ted Kirkpatrick comments: "We're thrilled with the response to the first two singles. This album took considerably longer to record than expected, but we feel the fans will find it to be worth the wait. It's been great to work with Tim and Chris on this one."
This past March, TOURNIQUET released the "Gazing At Medusa" title track, cover art and lyric video. The song featured guest appearances by Deen Castronovo (JOURNEY) on lead vocals and Poland on lead guitar.
"Gazing At Medusa" was mixed and mastered by Aaron Pace.
Guest musicians on previous TOURNIQUET albums have included Chris Jericho (FOZZY), Corey Glover (LIVING COLOUR), Michael Sweet (STRYPER) and Doug Pinnick (KING'S X) on vocals, and Marty Friedman (MEGADETH), Pat Travers, Scotti Hill (SKID ROW) and Bruce Franklin (TROUBLE) on guitar.
