Guitarist David T. Chastain's 2011 new all-instrumental release, "Civilized Warfare", has just been made available on Diginet Music. The effort, which is described as "heavy [while] still full of emotional intensity and terrifying technique" showcases David's varying influences and styles. Mike Haid once again provides a strong foundation with his drumming and bassist Steven Taylor contributes the consistent bass playing that allows David to go to places he might not otherwise venture.
In last five years, David's music has been used in literally hundreds, if not thousands, of TV shows and films, and this work is geared towards his "metal in TV" campaign. David states: "I never sat out to provide music for TV and films, [but] I have found that they can take my music as is and use it very easily in a wide range of shows, from 'Oprah' to the NFL network and everything in between.
"While no one is necessarily getting rich from it, there is gratification in hearing your music on TV!"
According to a press release, "Civilized Warfare" does not consist of instrumental "noodlings," but is based around actual song frameworks.
"I would classify this release as more of a hard rock release than a straight-ahead metal recording," David said. "I hear some '80s in this one!"
