Dream Theater's James LaBrie Releases New Solo Album

.
(Gibson) Dream Theater vocalist James LaBrie's new solo album, Impermanent Resonance, is making its way around the world, hitting Europe yesterday and North America on August 6.

Like 2010's Static Impulse, the album finds LaBrie collaborating with Peter Wildoer of Darkane (drums and vocals), Matt Guillory (keys, co-songwriter, vocals), Marco Sfogli (guitars) and Ray Riendeau (bass) - as well as Soilwork guitarist Peter Wichers, who contributes songwriting on several tracks.

If you're only used to LaBrie's work with Dream Theater you might be surprised by the direction his last two albums have taken: at times they veer squarely into melodic death metal territory, blended within a progressive metal framework. But on Impermanent Resonance LaBrie and Guillory temper the aggression with melodic hooks that wouldn't be out of place in commercial pop music, if you were to strip away with heaviness.

"Absolutely, no doubt about it," LaBrie tells Bravewords.com. "They're pretty damn poppish even as they stand now (laughs) ...A song like 'Back On The Ground' definitely deserves to be in amongst the songs being played on radio these days, and it stands up against any one of them. For me a song is either a song or it's not good, and what's important is what it conveys to me regardless of whether it's a metal song or a pop song or a jazz piece. There are songs on Impermanent Resonance that definitely have that pop sensibility to them." more on this story
