Ex-Slik Toxik frontman Nick Walsh and friends cover Savatage classic

Former Slik Toxik and current Famous Underground and Moxy frontman Nick Walsh, along with Andrew Tee (guitar), Andrew Suarez (drums), and Daniel Tsourounis (bass, production), have released a cover of Savatage‘s classic song “Hall Of The Mountain King.”

Nick Walsh photoWalsh was recently interviewed by Sleaze Roxx where he commented on branching out into different projects: “Well, you know, I decided a few years ago – I kind of took a cue off a good friend of mine, Darren James Smith, who sings in Red Dragon [Cartel and] plays drums for Harem Scarem. I saw him as probably one of the hardest working guys I knew as a musician. I mean, he was working four to five nights a week and spreading himself out there. I sort of went, “You know, I think I need to do the same thing.” I can’t just hoard my personal projects — Famous Underground and write and record – and in between that, just hope it sticks. A lot of times, I had been asked by people if I would partake in their projects and stuff, and I always felt that if I did that, I would lose myself. I put myself out there and realized that it can only help what I do by spreading myself out there, especially in today’s ever changing media world [emphasis added].”

Walsh also added, “With social media and social networking, you got to stay – no pun intended – relevant, and by doing so, you need to be out there constantly intriguing people. I think for me, I got to intrigue myself as well by trying different things and taking on new challenges.”
