Adagio Guitarist's Solo Album to Feature Guest Appearances by Members of Motörhead and Nevermore

Stéphan Forté - guitarist for the French neo-classical metal act Adagio - is currently in the studio recording his first instrumental solo album. Titled The Shadows of Compendium, the album will hit stores before the end of 2010 and is slated to feature guest appearances by Phil Campbell (Motörhead), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore), Rusty Cooley and Derek Taylor, among others. Keyboard and piano tracks will be performed by Kevin Codfert, who will also handle the mixing and recording duties for Compendium. Designer Perrine Perez Fuente will be in charge of the album artwork and photos for Forté's solo effort. (Fuente previously worked with Adagio on the reissue of the band's live album, A Band in Upperworld.)

A recent press release has stated that The Shadows of Compendium will feature nine songs, described as "really heavy and very dark and shred-oriented." (Read More)
