“Composer, arranger and current guitarist for German heavy metal monsters U.D.O. and Dirkschneider, Andrey Smirnoff has released his first single “Samurai” from his upcoming solo album, Electric Gravity (2021).
“I like creating music and I always wanted to put out an instrumental solo record. Last year was a bit chaotic and strange but it gave me the time to give all my attention to this album. I wanted to give my guitar a lead vocal ability and make it sing. As an active musician, I always have a ideas on my mind. “Samurai” was one of those. A few more guitar singles with music video are coming soon and the digital release of the album is planned for September 2021”. Andrey Smirnoff
Electric Gravity was created as a quintessence of all the best guitar oriented music genres. Andrey easily moves from classic heavy guitar riffing to jazz and twist, from modern metal aggression to soft and melodic ballads.”
