Godsmack Vocalist Sully Erna to Release a Solo Album

Godsmack frontman Sully Erna will release the solo album that he has been toiling over for seven years on September 14. Seven years? What the hell was the hold up? The album, called Avalon, will feature an array of guest players, including classically trained cellist Irina Chirkova and percussionist Niall Gregory of Dead Can Dance. Clearly, this is not a rock record.
"I truly believe that this is my best work to date. I'm more proud of this record than any other music I have ever recorded," Erna wrote in a blog on Godsmack's MySpace page. "It is so pure and organic, every ounce of my blood, sweat and tears has been poured into this body of work. Without a doubt, I have completely exposed myself in this album. More importantly, it's just a very cool musical journey you go on when you listen through. Although, as I've said before, I must emphasize that THIS IS NOT A ROCK RECORD! This is a series of beautifully arranged compositions that I have created over many years. Some compositions are newer, written with the help of my solo band mates. Others have been shelved over time waiting for the right moment to be released. That moment is finally here, and I couldn't be more proud to share it with all of you!"
