Nita Strauss releases video for “Mariana Trench”

Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss continues to promote her debut solo instrumental album Controlled Chaos with the release of another video, this time for the track “Mariana Trench.”

Strauss was recently interviewed by Sleaze Roxx contributor Ruben Mosqueda for KNAC where she was asked what sets her album Controlled Chaos apart from other instrumental albums. Strauss replied:

“It’s been a process to get this album together. It’s been a long time in the making but this is the album that I’ve always wanted to release. I can say this: this is the album that I envisioned, that I would release since I started playing guitar. All my musical heroes have been guitarists, [Steve] Vai, [Joe] Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Yngwie Malmsteen, I’ve always wanted to make an album that followed in their footsteps. It took a long time to put together Controlled Chaos because of my amazing day job, playing in the Alice Cooper band.

When Alice took some time to do some touring with The Hollywood Vampires, I took full advantage of the time to work on this record and make it a reality. I wanted to make an instrumental album. I guess I could have made an album with singing on it, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to make record where the songs spoke to you through my playing. I think I achieved just that, I’m really proud of this album. I really wanted this album to showcase what I can do and that is play guitar.”
