Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook’s new side project MetalMorphosis releases debut album
Black ‘N Blue guitarist Brandon Cook has a new project called MetalMorphosis, which released its debut album Metalmorphosis Volume I on December 22, 2017. The Portland, Oregon, USA based group consists of Larry Smith on lead and background vocals; Cook on guitar, bass, keyboard and background vocals; and, Andrew Korn on drums, keyboard, “eno-isms” and background vocals.
MetalMorphosis‘ “Story” on their Facebook page states:
“These Rock N Roll warriors hailing from different parts of the US met and banded together in Portland, Oregon. They pooled their guides of rock lords Plant, Meine, Dio, Slash, Rhodes, Peart, Van Halen, Bunker, Loungo, Bonzo, Taylor. They focused the rock intensity with Metal fueled joy, and the music gods were pleased.
Over the years these musicians fought many rock battles, but as they grew became audience slayers. Members of MetalMorphosis toured with some of the biggest names in Rock and Roll , where clapped hands of many fair lads and lasses echoed loudly in the pungent halls of New York, Tokyo, San Francisco, Portland and L.A. For these were the days of young. A lesson in working hard and living the dream.
When they first met they were unsure of this idea of taking these “Jazz tunes” and combining their forces of Metal to honor them. But once the gauntlet was laid, all doubt became full Metal inspired creations of glory.
Alas, through focus and effort, what became a lightbulb moment idea turned into a ridiculously awesome ripping guitar, screaming vocals ,and a one- two drum punch crushing attack of full metal assault.
New alloy of Metal hath been born!”
